First return visit to Cartole since the new owners took over. Glad to say they’ve maintained the high standards. Place is always spotless and the welcome pack is highly appreciated. Great location for visiting places around Cornwall. Looe is great for eating but can’t beat the Crumplethorne inn at Polperro for top sea food, scallops are awesome. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, perfectly applied by the new owner Karl.
The cottage was perfectly situated within easy reach of lovely local beaches and plenty of activities for families. Everything in the cottage was immaculate, with every detail thought of.
Our stay in Shippen cottage was very enjoyable as we found the cottage to have everything needed for a relaxing peaceful few days away. The cottage was cosy and clean and the beds very comfortable. We were greeted by Carl on arrival and made to feel welcome but as everything (apart from the wifi) was perfect, had no need to contact him during our stay. The location of the cottage complex is great for days out. Will hopefully be visiting again next year.
Just returned from a lovely stay at Penny’s cottage. We have stayed in three different cottages now and they are all clean, well equipped and comfortable. We met the new owners, Karl and Miles who were so friendly and are making lots of enhancements (including a family game room next year) to the already excellent facilities. We enjoyed meals at the Plough in Duloe (recommended by the cottage owners) and the Jubilee Inn in nearby Pelynt. I’d definitely recommend the Blue Peter inn in Polperro. We look forward to seeing all the new changes next year hopefully.
We enjoyed our late April week at Cartole Cottages. The Old Stable is small but very clean, and fine for two people. The cottages are a good base for exploring the area too.
Another fantastic stay at Cartole Cottages in what is becoming a regular haunt for us with the pooch. Its located just outside Pelynt, secreted away from the touristy crowds in a peaceful and tranquil location but close enough to pop out to the wonderful places such as Looe & Polperro where you can dine. Its also less than an hour away from the main tourist places like Padstow, St Ives & Newquay so its ideally suited as abase to explore Cornwall. The accommodation is always spotlessly clean and the new owners, Karl & Miles, are enhancing what was already a great place to stay. New patio are...more
