Can't fault this flat. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and lovely décor. Free car park permit for the main Polperro car park only a few minutes walk away and only 3 minutes walk from the Crumplehorn Inn - what more could you want? Thank you, Jo and Mark for your hospitality, hope to return.

We had a great stay at the Ryder. The hosts were very friendly and helpful leaving a lovely welcome cream tea for us. Everything was clean and well maintained with an information pack about the area to help you out. Walking distance to the town but there is a hill to reach the Ryder which may not be suitable for some. We would recommend and return.

Lovely stay, comfy bed, good self catering facilities, warm welcome, ideal location for exploring and then coming home to walking distance pubs with great food and drinks. Will absolutely be returning to Cornwall and Polperro, as feel like we didn't scratch the surface. Just be warned if you are used to the relative flats of Norfolk and Suffolk, the terrain can be a little challenging!

We were looking forward to our week in Cornwall and from previous comments thought they'd be no problems. We arrived to be told we had to park down in the car park .The property is on an extremely steep hill !!! Due to that after a day out and getting back ,the thought of going out again wasn't on the agenda!!! I have to say that we did have extras that you wouldn't expect ie...

Management response:

We were very disappointed to receive this review, especially as on leaving you told us that you'd had a great time and had really enjoyed your holiday. If you had raised any issues with us when you were here, we would have had a chance to address them. Unfortunately the first we have heard about them is in this review....

Great little cottage, very clean, comfy bed, and well equipped kitchen. All great foundations for a fabulous break! The apartment is in a quiet area on the edge of town and is a very pleasant short walk in to the centre. Polperro is a lovely little village that retains a local feel and you get a very friendly welcome everywhere you go. There's lovely walks you can do around the cost. Don't leave without trying...
