"A little disappointing"
Whilst Torca is a spacious and very clean property it is surprising that it is rated 4 star.We have rented many cottages in Cornwall, dorset and other areas over the years and given its rating Torca i… More
Thank you for taking the time to review Torca and all feedback is taken seriously by us. One disadvantage of our beautiful location is that during the summer months, Port Gaverne is popular! We are aware of the parking issue and are in the process of installing keyed parking posts in our private car park, so we can ensure all our guests have access to parking. I would like to apologise for the building debris – we had to replace a couple of windows in the adjacent property which coincided with the time you were staying, and the debris should have been cleared away quicker.

"A Cornwall Oasis"
A spacious, well decorated cottage with everything you would need for an enjoyable,relaxing holiday break. The sea and hotel/restaurant and bar are a stones throw away from your front door and Port Isaac is just a short walk or drive away.
We have stayed in most of the Green Door cottages and each one has been lovely.
That reminds me I must book for 2015!
Many thanks for your review, which was much appreciated. Glad to hear you enjoyed your break and we look forward to welcoming you back next year!

"Brilliant, clean, great location!"
Amazing accommodation in such a beautiful location. Very clean and tidy also has a great shower, ideal after a day at the beach. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your lovely comments. Hope to see you back again soon!

"A great place for a get together with friends"
We stayed in Torca and friends stayed in other cottages to celebrate one couples wedding anniversary. The cottage was beautifully furnished and well equipped. The bed was fantastic - something that you don't often find in holiday rentals.
It was a cold weekend but we had a warm and cosy home from home to stay in. The Greendoor cottage complex was ideal for a group such as ours as we had the benefit of the privacy of our own house but were close to all our friends.
The location is superb with its own beach, walking distance to Port Issac and within easy driving distance of many local attractions.
Many thanks for the review - glad the anniversary weekend was a success! We hope to see you again soon.

"Lovely cosy cottage in close proximity to Port Gaverne"
Lovely inviting cottage with beams that add character. Each room was done nicely and was very welcoming to come from travelling miles, to relax in a heated cottage. The shower was great and even with three women sharing there was enough hot water for us all each morning. I would highly recommend to anybody who wants to see Port Isaac/Port Gaverne as this is a lovely location and the people were brilliant.
Thank you for your review of Torca - you were the first visitors following a full refurb! We hope to see you back again soon.
