“quaint cottage”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed for 5 days in June 2015 on a last minute booking. Found the cottage ideal for our visit. Its lovely for a couple, and is well equipped and of a very high standard, The only thing I would stress that although It was great for us it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The stairs inside the property were very steep and it is a big hike up the hill to where you can park the car. Also if your a light sleeper take ear plugs, the seagulls squawk all night. Unfortunately we did not receive the email before arriving with instructions/directions etc. as outlook/hotmail was blocking them but Giles was very helpful with both the cottage and all things Polperro.

“A blissful 5 days”
Reviewed December 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This cottage is enchanting and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed toasting ourselves in front of the wood burner of an evening. We had never been to Polperro before. It is a delightful, historic, but still active, fishing village. Oversteps is only a minute or so from the pubs, shops and restaurants.
The weather was near perfect for early December (no rain and glorious sunshine) and we great appreciated the off-season peace and quiet. All in all, a blissful experience!

“Excellent - First Class”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I visited Oversteps for a long weekend, with my husband, son and daughter-in-law. The cottage had everything we could wish for and more. The standard of fittings etc are first class.
Everyone must eat at:-
The Blue Peter Inn
Somewhere
We will definitely be visiting again in the near future.

“Fantastic weekend with friends”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014
2
people found this review helpful

2 friends my wife and I stayed at Oversteps in February for a weekend and it was fantastic. The cottage is spacious and superbly furished throughout, the location is brilliant as it's so central. Driving in Polperro is very, very tight but quite fun especially when you find out the road is 2 way.
We went to the Blue Peter for dinner on the Friday which was really good, the pub is tiny but the staff and locals were great fun.
The cottage has a great wood burner and in the crazy winds outside it was incredibly cosy inside. We walked to Looe on the Saturday along the coastal path in the crazy wind which was 41/2 miles. It was really hilly but good fun and very enjoyable.
Polperro it's self is a really picturesque and very quant fishing village with a good set of shops for the essentials and a short drive to many attractions.
Oversteps & Polperro is very much worth a visit!
