“Perfect”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great apartment in great location... Well equipped and 2 little outdoor spaces were well utilised. Highly recommend staying here instead of Looe, much more quaint and less touristy, plus looe is just 10 minutes away (by car) or a nice few hour walk along the coast. Jo and Mark were lovely and couldn't be more accommodating, highly recommend

Lovely cottage. Mark and jo were very nice, they gave us a welcome cream tea which was lovely. steep Up hill walk from the harbour back to the cottage but well worth it as polperro is stunning.

“Perfect Polperro”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed at the Retreat very well run by Mark and Jo.Up the hill just outside the village it is a good location for all that Polperro has to offer.Would recommend The British Legion for a ice evening and The Ship for good food
Accommodation at the Retreat is spotlessly clean and is well equipped with all you will need to enjoy a relaxing holiday .A nice touch from Jo and Mark is a Cream Tea when you arrive which was well appreciated after a long journey .
Would recommend you try the coastal walk to Looe from Polperro which takes about 2.30hours but is well worth the effort with beautiful views along the way .

“Lovely, cosy apartment in a great location for exploring”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our short beak at The Retreat. The apartment is lovely - very cosy and comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need. It was spotlessly clean and the added extras like kitchen basics, shampoo and a good selection of DVDs and books were all much appreciated.
Jo and Mark were perfect hosts. Just the right balance between friendliness and privacy. Their welcome and tips about the area was much appreciated and we felt sure they would have helped if we needed anything, but they also kept away and allowed us our own space. The scones left for us in the kitchen were a lovely surprise.
The hill from the carpark is very steep - a bit of struggle for two people a little out of shape!

“Lovely place. Big enough go be comfortable,small enough to be cozy.”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very helpful hosts who were always on hand when needed but never obtrusive. And very well stocked with little extras like soap, TP that one doesn't always find in self-catering. We had a lovely week.
