"Excellent accommodation in a wonderful part of Cornwall"

We have stayed at this cottage for one week each year for the past 10 years and have always found it to be very clean and well maintained. It is located in the center of village,near harbour and lots of places to eat out at reasonable prices. Also handy for touring the surrounding area.

"Very Clean, comfortable and well located cottage"

The cottage is really clean and equipped with everything you need. The location is very central to wonderfully friendly village. My family and I will not hesitate to go back and stay here, but next time for longer. A perfect place for a perfect holiday.

"Cosy, neat and tidy, well equipped."

We had an excellent stay in Polperro, the cottage was small but very comfortable and fine for 4 adults. It had everything we needed for a lovely long weekend exploring Cornwall. Overall excellent value for money - would definitely visit again.

"In the heart of Polperro."

Overall I think we have stayed at Hael a Gwynt on 3 or 4 separate occasions. Right in the heart of Polperro, spotlessly clean throughout and very cosy and quiet. Parking within the village is also included albeit a few minutes walk.
Very narrow streets and tight corners but that is all part of the character and atmosphere of Polperro.

"Quaint Fishermans Cottage"

We have stayed at Hael-a-Gwynt on more than one occasion and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful little cottage and very authentic. Very well equipped all through and very clean. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone. Although it is not modern and been updated like a lot of the holiday lets in Polperro it gives a feel of the village that has not been spoilt. Love it and would stay there anytime.
