“Oversteps, a little gem”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2017

Just got back from a week in oversteps and it was a little gem of a place , the kitchen had everything you needed even a dish washer , the only downside is the hike up a very steep hill to your parking space and if you take another car you park in the main car park for a charge of £ 40.00 for the week but we loved our stay and would stay again you are right down in the town not far from the harbour.

“very cosy cottage in a very nice place”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2014

We were here for easter for 4 days. Cottage is refurbished to a very good standard. Nice kitchen and living areas, located right in the center of the vollage. Most cafe/restaurant and nice Blue peter pub in walking distance, as for some walking paths. You need to park a bit further but that's not too bad (you can stop in front of to drop/collect your stuff)

“Lovely cottage in central location”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2014

The cottage is centrally located in a quaint lane less than 2 mins walk to the harbour and shops. It has been beautifully renovated with quality furnishings, a lovely, good-sized and well-equipped kitchen and a clean and modern bathroom. The Wi-Fi was much appreciated. The lack of 5 stars is simply due to the lack of washing machine which is hard to manage without when you have kids on the beach and rock-climbing every day. Despite that, we would return to this cottage like a shot. Note that parking is a 5 minute walk up a steep hill - but once you visit Polperro you realize parking is like gold dust, and to be honest you don't need the car much - walk along the cliffs on the South West Path to Looe or Talland Bay, and eat out in the lovely restaurants and pubs in Polperro. The Kitchen restaurant for something special and the Blue Peter pub for fabulous fish and chips. Polperro is absolutely beautiful and a complete step back in time - we will return!

“Lovely cottage, excellent for seeing Cornwall”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

Excellent cottage though if you have problems with mobility not the best place to stay, narrow steep streets, unable to park outside property, with steps (though this was indicated on booking). There is a small carpark further up the street (which is included in the price) but this is steep, the main carpark is easier to get to, no great incline or you can get the local "tram". A great place for getting out and seeing Cornwall but at first the narrow streets do seem dauting if you are driving - this did not stop us going any where! Quaint small local shops which sold most products and restaurants. Only the bakers opened early with most shops closing early (so get your shopping before going out). A lovely place to stay though seagulls very noisy day and night,
