    We found the decor a little tired, it could do with a freshen up and the microwave wasn’t mentioned in the holiday description. We had a lovely stay and Polperro is just beautiful with some lovely walks and amazing places to eat, our favourite being The Three Pilchards.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, so pleased you had a lovely stay. The Studio will be redecorated and new carpet fitted in the new year. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner

    Bathroom and kitchen area need modernising - shabby with dirty corners. Fridge very poor. Electrics are tested but very old. Whole thing needs sprucing up with more imaginative storage [important in a studio location.]

  • "Lovely well equipped studio apartment in a beautiful location."

    We knew of the steep walk to it, it meant we could eat a few more pasties! Nothing at all to complain about but if I were being picky it could do with a deep clean. It was clean for day to day use but when you look closely it needs a good spring clean. On saying that we would book again. If you’re not a huge dog fan Polperro is not the place for you. They were everywhere and the enclosed streets smelt of poop and urine. Such a shame for such a beautiful setting!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The Studio will be refreshed, redecorated and new carpet fitted in the new year. While dogs are welcome in our beautiful village, it is down to the owners to do the right thing. You would be most welcome if you choose to visit us again. Property Owner

    The Studio was light and airy and the view was amazing. We liked the garden and patio area and were lucky enough with the weather to make use of these. Polperro was a friendly place with lots of choices of pubs/cafes to eat and ideal to enjoy the coast path. I didn't move my car from the convenient space all holiday, we made use of buses,ferries and walks. We don't usually return to the same place again to holiday, but we will be tempted.

  • "I really don’t know how anyone can think of looking for cobwebs and stains on towels!"

    !!..need to get a life. This little studio is a gem and a half. We found “ nothing” to complain about and everything to enjoy this spectacular little bolt hole . The views were breath taking and we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our well long deserved holiday. Yes the 10 minute walk up to the studio was a bit tough when you’re carrying all your luggage..2 tips. Don’t take as much as we did ( just take what you need for a small break ) or, when you arrive find the luggage taxi ( we only found this out during the stay ) . They charge around £12 and it’s like a garden tractor who take your luggage to your place. Plenty to do and see in this spectacular fishing village. We’re definitely going back. Probably every year to this beautiful place. We’ve found our haven.

    Reviewed by Stephen5.0Apr 2022

  • "The views were stunning!"

    Even with the small hike up the hill to find the studio, the views out in to the harbour made it worth the effort. However, we felt that the overall cleanliness of the studio was not great as there were cobwebs hanging between the lights, crumbs were still all over the sides, the bin lid had stains of food on. The bathroom towels were stained and so we gave everything another clean using the sprays provided.

  • "We have just returned from our holiday to The Studio in Polperro."

    The accommodation is pleasant but basic. I wasn't quite prepared for the steepness of the walk up to The Studio, although it was mentioned, I feel that anyone staying there should be ready and aware of the slope to The Studio. The information given advised it was a five minute walk from the parking space but on the walk up, I would estimate it is at least 10 minutes and maybe longer with luggage. Also the carpark space instructions were a little out of date as the Pasty shop mentioned as a landmark to help locate it, no longer exists. If you do stay at the Studio a better reference to look out for the parking space is that it is opposite 'Harbour Green House' restaurant. Also the instructions of how to get to the Studio were a little sketchy, it would have have been better to include in the instructions to follow the coastal path, follow past The Shell House and then around past Sunny Corner Cottage, it is probably a five minute walk from there. The Studio itself is adequate and comfortable with a microwave and hot plates for warming up food. If you like cooking for yourself while on holiday, this probably isn't the place to stay; we don't, so it was fine for us. The bed is comfortable and the studio is clean but bijou, so storage is limited. The outside leisure space is rather cramped but has a lovely view. There are a couple of plastic chairs and a small cast iron table and chairs it is on a slight slope with stone chippings on the ground. The studio has the sun most of the day and gets very hot inside, there are fans provided, which are helpful but just move the hot air around. Maybe the studio would benefit from a cooling unit for extreme hot weather events. All in all we had a very pleasing stay at the Studio. ( I would also say to people who do not like dogs, that Polperro is not the place for them as it seemed every other person we met had at least one dog, we felt a bit left out without one! Luckily for us we are dog lovers. However there are no dogs allowed at The Studio)

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We do take this seriously and as a result we have amended the directions to the property and the information about the parking space. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We feel that the bijou nature of The Studio is clearly shown in the photographs and description, and we do state that there is a kitchenette. We're glad to hear that you had a pleasing stay and enjoyed the fabulous views! Property Owner

  • "We paid luxury prices for a very basic accommodation, no washing machine, or internet and poor cooking facilities."

    Was a small wooden building that cost nearly £1000 for four nights. Even watered down the fairy liquid. Where we stayed before left bacon bread eggs etc in the fridge and was only a third of the cost. We bought them a bottle of wine to say thank you, but then it was run by the hosts. You can understand why people go abroad when they encounter this. Wouldn’t recommend or stay there again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The property is not advertised with a washing machine or internet, and it is clearly stated that there is a kitchenette in The Studio. The Fairy Liquid - we have a septic tank and the water here is very soft. If we do not do this, it creates too many soap suds.

    However, shower room is looking rather tired and in need of redecoration/deep clean. Minor point the parking space padlock is getting stiff, needs oiling or replacement. I know some costs may have risen but prices have been hiked for next year so have looked elsewhere for our next stay.

    Thank you for your invaluable feedback which we have discussed with the owner who reports that the parking pad is checked and lubricated each month. If there is a lot of rain between his visits it can sometimes stiffen the lock mechanism. We are sorry if this caused a problem during your stay. Property Owner

    It is compact but well planned to make the most of the space. The views are wonderful, you can sit and look at the sea for hours! The space is light and bright and secluded, you are not overlooked and it is very private. The walk up from the village is steep for about the last 100 metres. Having the private parking space in the village is fantastic. The shower room is quite snug, if you were a large person you would find the shower cubicle a bit cramped.

    But make sitting on the terrace much more enjoyable. Alternatively, level out the lower terrace and put in a guard rail, this would a perfect place to sit as well. In our view the bed is adequate but rather small as a double, would suggest a wider bed if it would fit. Also separate downies would be preferable. Thanks and regards Frank Newman
