My sister and I needed somewhere in Penryn to stay for a week whilst sorting out family matters. So, we had not come for sea, sun and sand, but more looking for a comfortable refuge to retreat to at the end of the day. Sorgente couldn't have been better at providing this; in spadefuls. It is the most delightful and tastefully renovated cottage. It retains old world charm with modern day comforts. The cottage was well equipped and everything, including all the linens and towels, were of a very high standard. Both bedrooms are spacious and we had plenty of room to hang clothes, with plenty of drawer spaces too. It also has a superb bathroom with all modern/new fittings. The vast overhead shower was divine. Also all the little goodies which included soaps and bath gels. Of an evening it was very cosy. We only used the CD player, but you could bring your iPod, DVDs as well and of course there is a TV. The free WiFi was a real bonus and made it very easy for us to carry out research and find local services. The communications and ease of booking and all the information provided by the owner was also top notch. The online description of the cottage is perfectly correct and the photography is truly representative of the accommodation. As we were not on a holiday we didn't visit local attractions - but of course one absolute must, if you enjoy good food, is a visit to Ricky Stein's restaurant and take away near the Maritime Museum in Falmouth. The most sumptious dinner was greatly enjoyed and appreciated. We can highly recommend this cottage. Jane & Cherry - March 2016

Front of Sorgente Cornish Holiday Cottage

Natural light

Overall we have tried to let as much natural light into the property, to give a fresh contemporary feel whilst not losing focus on its traditional features, character and charm with its thick stone walls and traditional sliding sash windows (double-glazed).

The spacious open plan living room is equipped with a wood burning stove and leads to the fully equipped kitchen which also serves as the dining area. It is well lit due to the large patio windows which open directly into the sunny enclosed garden... an ideal spot for a morning coffee or to read the papers, but a real sun trap at midday through to the afternoon in midsummer.

Bedrooms and bathroom

Upstairs there are a double and twin bedroom providing a high level of comfort with quality mattresses and bed linens. A luxurious Italian-styled bathroom complete with large bath, overhead rain shower and bidet, is the focal point of the second floor accommodation sat between the two bedrooms. Ideal for families, Sorgente Holiday Cottage also appeals to couples for breaks throughout the year. There is on-road parking for one car and space for surfboards, wetsuits and bicycles in the garden area.

Filtered fresh air

The heat recovery system helps to meet targets of low energy consumption but also importantly keeps the home fresh and dry removing condensation and dust, ideal for those whose may have an allergy such as asthma or hay fever. It also helps prevent steamy mirrors in the bathroom. We are pleased that we are able to offer self catering accommodation more suited to asthma and allergy sufferers and therefore have a strict non-smoking, no pets policy. Sorgente does not 'suffer' from damp like so many traditional granite cottages in Cornwall, this is thanks to the heat recovery system, it is therefore not necessary to 'ventilate' the house by leaving windows open and thereby losing heat.

An excellent touring base

Secluded beaches and quaint fishing villages of the Roseland Peninsula, the Lizard Peninsula and the renowned Eden Project are within easy reach.

"Thank you very much for a great time away. I grew up in Truro Hill next door! I am now back with my husband for our honeymoon and it was great showing him where I grew up. The house is amazing. A great home away from home. Thank you!"
