The best holiday house in Cornwall

Rebecca & Tim

We stayed in May 2019 and were lucky enough to have fantastic weather. Willy Wilcox is the best house we’ve rented in Cornwall or Devon and we’ve rented loads before. The house itself is steeped in Polperro history and iconic in so many photos of this famous Cornish harbour. Once inside though, everything is pristine and tastefully modernised throughout so as to be extremely comfortable but keeping all of its historic charm. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and living areas, all spotless. The hot water was plentiful for baths and the showers were electric so never run out of hot water. Everything in the kitchen right down to the utensils and cutlery appeared to be brand new – everything we needed. Then out through the master bedroom up the short path to the private terrace set into the cliff above the house. The best views in the village bar none. Amazing. Other things to note were the fast WIFI, the very easy arrival process and key access and of course, the very welcome cream tea with scones, jam and clotted cream – a lovely detail. The location of the house is just perfect. Out the door and down the steps and you are on the beach. Or turn left and within yards you are amongst the pubs and restaurants of Polperro. All in all, highly recommended.
