We stayed two nights and simply cannot fault Charlayne and David on anything. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable with super comfortable beds. Breakfast was excellent and we couldn't have asked for more. We went to two nearby pubs for our evening meals and enjoyed

My apologies Candy, I have just realised that although I had responded to you directly last year, I hadn't actually sent you a response on Tripadvisor to your very kind and considerate review of your stay with us at Polmena House which we really appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit and taking you to the Minnack Theatre, St Michaels Mount and Porthleven. There is still much to see in Cornwall so do come back soon! Happy Travelling!.

My apologies, I have realised that although I had sent a thank you message last year via your travelling companions, I hadn't actually replied to your very kind review on Tripadvisor, which was and is much appreciated. We did enjoy your visit and I am sorry we were not about to see you in Florida this March. Your visit to Cornwall also enabled us to take the time to see a bit more of our beautiful Cornish countryside and the weather was kind! So glad too that you enjoyed your delicious meal at Couch's, Polperro as it is a great place to eat! Many many thanks.
