We fell in love with Demelza in the spring of 2016 and by October we were the lucky owners. We then set about decorating, improving, updating and furnishing the cottage until we could proudly offer it as a beautiful holiday cottage to rent.
Demelza is a lovely period cottage located next to the River Pol and just a short walk from the harbour. You can hear the river from the garden and parts of the house and the sound of running water, not to mention the abundance of negative ions, gives you a wonderful feeling of calm and well being. What's more, the cottage is in Little Green which, whilst only seconds from the harbour, is away from the peak summer crowds and traffic free.
Demelza oozes character with beamed ceilings and a wood burning stove plus an enclosed garden with outdoor furnishing and the sound of the river. There are 3 bedrooms:- a Super King Double (which can convert to a Twin) a King Size Double and a Single Bedroom. PLEASE NOTE THE HEADROOM HEIGHT IN THE SUPER KING IS 5 FEET 10 INCHES AND IN THE SINGLE BEDROOMS IS 5 FEET 9 INCHES. There are 2 bathroom/shower rooms, the King Double has an en-suite shower room and there is a separate family bathroom with a bath (with hand held hair shower attachment). The cottage has a lounge with a wood burning stove and a TV with DVD, a separate dining room and a fully equipped kitchen including a single oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, cafetiere and all the utensils you need. There is a small utility area off the kitchen with a washing machine and you'll find a small freezer in the lobby between the lounge and the downstairs bathroom. The cottage has electric heating for all year warmth. Parking for one car is included in the rental cost and is located in the main Polperro Car Park (about an 8 minute walk away).
