“Fabulous little hideaway”
Reviewed 31 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Just stayed for four days at the "Lower Laurels" Polperro Cornwall.

I must say this was one of the best short breaks we have ever had. The apartment is almost on the quaint little harbour, just a few feet away. With easy access to the East and West Coastal walks, which due to the fabulous five days of cloudless skies we took full advantage of. The views from these paths are absolutely breathtaking and well worth the effort, we walked from Polperro to Looe in two hours ( Stopping at the really nice Talland Bay cafe for tea in between ) then returned via the bus. It's worth mentioning these walks are not for the less mobile. We found the Crumblehorn Restaurant/Pub at the top of the village to be the best value, great quality and good sized meals every night.
The apartment was well decorated in a nautical theme, spotlessly clean with a really comfortable bed. The shower was excellent. Everything you could possibly want and more was provided by the owners from Crockery to Books and DVD's. Kelvin and Barbara who manage it are very friendly and helpful. Had a great time here, could not fault it anywhere.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 8 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This review is long overdue ( i cant even remember exactly when we went!) but this is a great little cottage in the perfect location in Polperro. It is a proper fisherman cottage and you can easily walk out the gate and to all the little pubs/cafes of polporro in seconds. Its on one of the cute little lanes in the absolute heart of polperro. The living area was very pretty and decor as we would chose for our own home. We went off season in september i think and would definitely recommend this as the pubs are full of locals and you feel you are seeing proper cornwall! We dont often return to places but this is one we hope to.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 15 August 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Myself and my partner + her two dogs stayed at the Lower Laurels in Polperro last Oct and loved it so much we are returning this year. Unfortunately due to other family members accompanying us we have had to book a larger apartment.

The Lower Laurels is just as described on the web site and is ideal for a couple’s holiday. Pint sized but lovingly decorated the Lower Laurels has all the feel of a country cottage but is seconds away from the beautiful harbour. It contains all the amenities that anyone would need and didn't fail to impress.

Kelvin and Barbara were lovely and were always there to offer assistance when we needed it. They also had no problems with the two dogs and the broadband access was a gods send as unless you are very lucky there is no mobile phone signal in Polperro.

Car parking was offered in the main car park (5 min walk) as no cars are allowed on the narrow streets in the village centre but this only adds to the charm of the village.

Polperro itself is great. Anyone visiting will find friendly pubs and restaurants, well stocked shops and plenty to do. I’d recommend a visit to the museum, about 20 seconds from the Lower Laurels, where you can delve into the history surrounding the village and the Blue Peter Pub for excellent food and atmosphere. All in all we loved our time here and can't wait to re-visit in Sep this year.
