"Lucy's a very good place to stay"
Lucy's is comfortable & cosy & is situated at the bottom of talland hill I'm glad to say.
A point I would like to make is if you are staying at Lucy's or on talland hill & you arrive before your time to enter the digs turn off sat nav & go on to main car park, but if you arrive at the correct time go down talland hill at the top it just looks like a footpath.
Right back to Lucy's you can't ask for much better the front steps are a little steep but not a problem, you are close to everything pubs shops etc.
The garage seems a distance but not too bad & you can always use the guy on the quad bike to ferry your bags back & fourth. All in all we had a good week at Lucy's & Polperro is a very lovely place to visit, if you like to walk the coastal path is great & the bus service every half hour is convenient for looe.

"Great holiday cottage"
Having decided to visit Cornwall for a weeks holiday , my partner suggested Polperro as our base as she had enjoyed a day out there previously . She discovered Lucy's and both agreed to go for it . We weren't disappointed ! The tone of the stay was set with the much appreciated welcome tray of tea , coffee , milk and biscuits . The living room was of a good size , as was the bedroom which had plenty of storage space . The bathroom was also spacious with a good shower . The kitchen being functional with nearly all the things you would need for cooking , not that we did much of that because Polperro is blessed with an array of places to eat . Lucy's has it's on patio which offers great views of the village and though you don't have a great view of the sea , you can at least see it , unlike some properties . The shops are minutes away , I could buy my morning paper and return in 5 minutes . You also have use of your own parking space , which is less than ten minutes walk . It's also a handy base for local excursions or going further afield to places like Boscastle or St Michael's Mount . All in all a great holiday made even better by staying at Lucy's . We will return again at some point in the future .

Having visited Polperro for the day we then decided to spend longer and found Lucys. It is a quaint cottage in a prime position. Everything you need is there, and the bed was amazing, I'm converted to feather now!
On Sunday morning I bought the paper and took a cuppa onto the patio, watched the sea, bliss!
Lucys was spotless, always a number one priorty for me, I didn't have to get my own products out of the car (has been known!).

"Cosy, close to the habour but difficult to access by car or by foot"
Good things:- Bright, south facing small 1 bed apartment - only large enough for 2 people. - Central location in Polperro, minutes from the harbour- Parking - albeit at a distance- Great access to l… More
Staying in a quaint fishing village such as Polperro does have it's drawbacks, such as lack of vehicular access to cottages and steep steps etc. However, Lucy's is one of the few cottages that can be accessed by car and parking is a level walk away. Full details of the cottage, size and number of steps, narrowness of Talland Hill, size of parking space etc are on our access statement that is sent to every visitor prior to arrival. Recycling of business waste is an issue in Cornwall which will hopefully be resolved in the near future. Similarly the electricity supply is an issue we have not yet resolved. When the electricity was supplied free, some visitors used it wastefully and, more importantly, left heaters etc on when the property was empty, creating a fire hazard. The slot meter is in credit when visitors arrive and rated at below cost, we do not expect much, if any, money, to be paid into the meter. This is our first year advertising on Tripadvisor and as issues come to light we resolve them. Although our advert states towels are not supplied it does not make it clear they are available to hire. Visitors booking through Tripadvisor, as opposed to direct, do not recieve all of the information until they have paid the full amount for their holiday, I will look at how we can improve this.

"Adorable cottage in an adorable village - loved it!!"
This cottage provided everything you'd want in a home away from home. It was cute, clean, and very comfortable. The location was ideal and the village perfect. Great choice!
