we stayed in little laney for one week over the new year. we were delighted by the charm of the property as well as it's location right in the centre of polperro. we had read the only other available review before the holiday (and after having booked it) and had some apprehensions because of the negativity of that review. we were pleasantly surprised by the reality. YES little laney is small, but so are most of the genuine cottages in polperro! we found the decor charming and the bedrooms beautiful and ALL of the beds extremely comfortable! the main bed is indeed very firm, but as that is what my husband and i like, it was ideal and we both slept very well indeed throughout the stay as did our 4 children (who range from 7-14). we found the cottage to be perfectly adequately supplied for our needs and soon adapted to the small living space on the ground floor. it being winter, we actually found that the small space helped with the whole `cosiness' of the holiday, especially with the log burner on. we even had our 2 german shepherds with us and managed perfectly well! polperro itself is utterly charming. the local people cannot do enough to help and welcome you. the pubs were great, really good atmosphere and the food very good in the 2 we tended to frequent (the blue peter inn and the three pilchards) - dogs more than welcome too, so another bonus. polperro is an excellent base for some fantastic walks on the southwest coast path - either to looe in one direction or to polruan and across to fowey in the other. we enjoyed the holiday so much that we are already planning to repeat it in 2015 at exactly the same time. AND in the same cottage!! we can honestly say that we found the cottage to be quiet and the only noise that any of us was awakened by was the noise of seagulls in the port, only 100m away from the house - can't really complain about that!! highly recommend both the location and the cottage itself to other travellers.
