Visitors are in for a real treat when they stay at Glintings holiday cottage in Polperro, Cornwall. Perched on the hillside with magnificent views over the village of Polperro and down to the harbour, this spacious detached cottage offers a perfect retreat for a holiday in Cornwall.  A lovely large, sunny living and dining room with a wood burner is a perfect place to unwind, with French doors that open out onto a lawned terrace, ideal for that early morning cup of coffee or drinks in the evening. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, all with great views. The garden extends up beside the house with a terraced patio that encourages al fresco dining, having prepared your meal in the spacious kitchen. Polperro is one of those all year round destinations, with lovely scenic walks that meander along the coastal path and cosy inns full of atmosphere. The narrow streets, crowded around the harbour have a host of little shops selling local curios and antiques and there are several excellent restaurants and tea rooms. Then, at the end of the day Glintings provides a tasteful and beautifully furnished home from home, with all the creature comforts to ensure your stay is a relaxing and memorable experience.


Lovely lounge/diner with wooden flooring, spectacular views, woodburner stove, two leather sofas and armchair, flat screen 40” TV with Freeview and DVD and dining table to seat eight.
