    Polperro is a beautiful location to holiday. The cottage itself is situated on a rather steep hillside, which provides spectacular views over the village.Yes it's difficult to get to, the drive to Brackenside is through typically Cornish countryside lanes (single lane with passing places) and yes parking isn't ideal, but this is Cornwall and so this is what you should really expect.If you're not the most confident of drivers, then maybe this cottage isn't for you. Brackenside is spacious and dog friendly. But just because it's dog friendly doesn't mean that you have to compromise on the basics, such as cleanliness , having to use furniture that is broken and that all important thing safety. It would seem that many past visitors have complained about a broken settee for over 12 months.I have to report it's still there as of October 2015. Being a couple with a dog, this wasn't an issue as there are others places to sit.The decor is dated, the artwork somewhat creepy (again according to the visitors book the Victorian portraits have been upsetting small children..and older ones too!)Read the visitors book please, an update is needed throughout the cottage with replacement artwork! We were without hot water for nearly a day. The heating was hit and miss, warm enough downstairs but not up where they didn't work, which led us to use the electric heater which promptly blew the fuse.In this day and age everything needs to be tested, seems that certain items are a couple of years out of date.Do any of the rental companies actually check the condition of the cottages on their books or are they just happy to take our money I wonder? We'd would have certainly been disappointed if we had paid full price for a summer holiday in July/August and had small children in our party. It certainly could have been better, but for a couple with a dog it made an ideal base if nothing else.It's a really shame that the owner doesn't actually respond in a positive manner instead of writing negative comments about those that complain. Would we go again? No. Would we go back to Polperro? Very defiantly, a beautiful Cornish fishing village and a holiday destination not to be missed.

    A lovely cottage in a fantastic location. However the finishing touches are poor ie: bed linen and furniture inside and out . Needs to be signposted better .

    Firstly the settee in the lounge is broken. Having read the visitor book comments it's been in that condition for over 12 months. Clearly this has been ignored by the owner which is unacceptable and it should be replaced or repaired as a matter of urgency. The directions to find the property need amending to avoid an unnecessary drive through Polperro. The bit about turning right at the footpath sign is of no use at all as the sign is on the back of the post you are approaching and cannot be seen. That's the negative stuff, the property has a good view of the harbour, it is very roomy and comfortable. If you are infirmed or totally out of shape getting to and from town will be a challenge. The pubs are dog friendly, serve good food and ale. Recommended.

    The cottage situation and outlook is brilliant. The road whether one goes via pollpero or via the lanes can be difficult to say the least. The walk down into pollpero is fine, the return journey is a challange for older people such as U.S.
