Glintings is a picturesque Cornish holiday cottage, full of creature comforts, looking down on the beautiful South Cornwall fishing village and harbour of Polperro. It is a detached and deceptively spacious 3-bedroom cottage welcoming 2-6 guests (and a pet), simply perfect for a seaside self-catering holiday in Cornwall with the family or friends at any time of the year.
Rooms at Glintings comprise
On the ground floor: * A large, light and sunny lounge and dining room. Thanks to a woodburner, it is snug and warm when the days are cool, but in summer, throw open the French Windows to let in the warm sea air, scented with garden flowers and those magnificent views. Facilities include a 40-inch TV, with DVD and Freeview plus a dining table with room to seat 8. It’s a lovely room in which to relax after a day enjoying Cornwall’s many beaches and attractions.
Also on this floor is a well-equipped kitchen for lunches, dinners and even breakfasts to be eaten indoors or in the open air. The mature hillside garden runs up alongside the house and leads to a terraced patio with outdoor dining tables and chairs.
The three large bedrooms, all having wonderful views, are all on the first floor and comprise: * A dual aspect Master bedroom overlooking the harbour with 5ft king size bed and fitted wardrobe. * A Twin bedroom containing a pair of 3ft single beds and fitted cupboard. * A Bunk bedroom having, full-size 3ft bunk beds and a fitted cupboard. * The large family bathroom is fitted with a bath, shower over, hand basin and WC.
Polperro welcomes visitors throughout the year. As well as being a great base for exploring Cornwall, it’s a place of narrow streets lined with ancient fishermen’s cottages and interesting hops, historic inns, restaurants and cosy tea rooms. Polperro Beach is about a 10-minute walk from the cottage with Talland Bay a pleasant walk of about one mile. It’s the perfect location for a memorable and relaxing holiday in Cornwall.
Glintings is reached by a flight of steps. They are shallow – but there are 50 of them – such is the way that houses in Polperro were built as they clamoured for a space to enjoy the view. As such, the cottage is probably not suitable for the elderly or infirm.
There is parking for unloading and pick-ups at the foot of the steps, with space for overnight parking for a large vehicle at Violet Farm about 300m further up the hill.
