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!"

"A fantastic place to stay! We have had a wonderful holiday with some beautiful weather. Would definitely recommend visiting the castle at Pendennis. Falmouth beach is lovely and our toddler loved the seal sanctuary in Gweek. We would definitely stay again."

We had a lovely stay at Sorgente
When we first arrived we noticed how well the cottage had been refurbished and also loved the welcome pack including wine, scones and fresh flowers. Our favourite part of the cottage had to be the bathroom with its waterfall shower and relaxing decor. Although we had our own car, Alex is very helpful with car hire if you need any. Overall we had a fabulous stay at Sorgente and have already discussed returning again in the future. Would highly recommend.

A lovely house close to Falmouth and Flushing. The house is beautifully decorated with a cute courtyard. There's a lovely near on the Marina a short walk away. Alexs communication was great I'd highly recommend this house.

April 2017
We had a great stay at the cottage! As most people likely arrive in car, we were able to get parking right outside every night, which was very convenient. Great location for exploring Cornwall.

March 2017
Lovely property, clean, quiet and well located. Good location, a clean, tranquil cottage. Well equipped and very accurate, understandable instructions for usage of all the facilities. Would recommend and would stay there again.

October 2016
Sorgente is a lovely Cornish cottage with a mixture of period charm and contemporary facilities. The cottage is extremely clean and well equipped. A lot of thought has clearly gone in to making this a home away from home. The neighbourhood is quite, but also very handy for transport links, both by road and rail. The town of Penryn is only a few minutes walk away. We enjoyed a great holiday with Sorgente as our base. Most definitely highly recommended. Thank you.

April 2016
Sorgente was a well located and clean house to stay for our holiday. It was comfortable for our family - (2 kids 8 & 12.) The bathroom is lovely and spacious and the kitchen was pretty well equipped for the size. Really pleased as it was allergy free which is not always that easy to come across.

March 2016
Lovely cosy stay, spacious for a couple. Very well maintained, luxury bathroom. Made to feel very welcome, even had a high chair out for us on arrival. Quick walk into penryn local shops or supermarket 1 mile away. We will definitely be back, thank you Alex

January 2016
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Sorgente over the New Year! The cottage is delightful in every way: comfortable and modern, functional and welcoming, clean and cosy. It was exactly what we wanted in a wonderful area of Cornwall that we were able to explore despite the weather. We would love to come back in the summer and experience the loooooong days instead of the long nights. I am sure Sorgente would be equally as excellent! Thank you.

December 2015
We really enjoyed our stay at Sorgente Cottage over the christmas period. The cottage is exactly as described and we wouldn't hesitate the stay again in the future. Alex ensured that we had all the information we needed and even arranged for a Xmas tree for our stay...thank you Alex! The cottage is close to the local shops and park and in a quiet area. Thank you for our lovely holiday. Alex & Kelly

October 2015
What a lovely place to stay. Quiet and homely and very well equipped (the bathroom was my favourite!) .. Definitely felt like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Cornwall. Thank you!

July 2015
Sorgente is a very nice appartment which is well-fitted and clean! All rooms are comfortably furnished with modern amenities! Pennryn is a nice village with everything needed nearby and in the heart of Cornwall. Our tipp: Have a relaxed day at the St. Ives Bay beach near Hayle (search for Blue Bay Cafe)! Matthias and family

February 2015
Sorgente is a great place to stay: very clean, modern, warm and comfortable. It's well located in Penryn and dealing with Alex was great. I was working while in town, so it was great to come back to such a lovely place each evening. I particularly liked the choice of artwork!
