"Sorgente" è un tradizionale Cottage della Cornovaglia situato in una schiera di piccoli cottage a terrazza di pietra di granito, che ricreano un'atmosfera originale ed elegante nell'antica città di Penryn.

La moderna cucina è anche sala da pranzo grazie all'abbondante luce che filtra attraverso la grande porta finestra del patio. Queste aprono direttamente nel giardino privato e nella zona per le griglia...angolo ideale per il caffè della mattina o per leggere i giornali, ma una vera lampada solare da mezzogiorno fino al pomeriggio nei mesi estivi. Un bagno in stile italiano completo di vasca con doccia a pioggia che scende dal soffitto e bidet, è la stanza di spicco del secondo piano, situata tra le due camere da letto. Ideale per famiglie, il Sorgente Holiday Cottage è ideale anche per coppire che vogliono prendere un break durante l'anno. Il parcheggio per una macchina è sulla strada davanti al cottage, e nel giardino c'è spazio per tavole da surf, tute in neoprene e biciclette.

Un tempo un porto di scambio e commercio, Penryn è oggi una delle più antiche e storiche città della Cornovaglia. Oggi è ancora in piena attività, ridente e ricca di piccoli interessanti negozietti, nelle tipiche stradine inglesi, strette e a volte un pò ripide, con piccoli passaggi pedonali, gallerie, ristoranti, vinoteche, pubs e bar. Giusto a pochi chilometri a piedi potrete raggiungere la sponda dell'insenatura che porta all'ampia distesa d'acqua delle strade Carrick e della baia di Falmouth . Qui una varietà di attività artigianali sono attraccati vicino al molo del giubileo con i suoi bar e negozi. Falmouth è raggiungibile in auto in 5 minuti, ed è una fantastica località per tutte le età con le sue favolose spiagge, sfidando i campi da golf e il Museo Nazionale Marittimo.

Situato vicino alla principale strada originaria per Truro, il Sorgente Holiday Cottage gode di una posizione strategica, tranquilla e lontano dalla fretta e dal trambusto. Il cottage trasuda originalità ed eleganza con la facciata in pietra e le tradizionali finestre a scivolamento sash. Tuttavia l'arredamento e le rifiniture interne mostrano un gusto mediterraneo influenzato dal periodo trascorso vivendo in Italia. Abbiamo voluto realizzare ambienti illuminati per lo più con luce naturale, per dare una sensazioni di modernità senza perdere di vista i suoi valori e le sue caratteristiche di tradizione.

Completely refurbished ready for our first season in 2010, Sorgente (sleeps 4) combines the beauty of period features with state-of-the-art amenities such as a heat recovery system (benefiting allergy/asthma suffers) and a Pozzani water filter. New gas central heating system, solid oak flooring, double glazed traditional sash windows and thick stone walls create a timeless backdrop for a modern interior with a distinctly Mediterranean flavour, inspired by our time spent in Italy.

Natural light
Overall we have tried to let as much natural light into the property, to give a fresh contemporary feel whilst not losing focus on its traditional features, character and charm with its thick stone walls and traditional sliding sash windows (double-glazed).

The spacious open plan living room is equipped with a wood burning stove and leads to the fully equipped kitchen which also serves as the dining area. It is well lit due to the large patio windows which open directly into the sunny enclosed garden and BBQ area... an ideal spot for a morning coffee or to read the papers, but a real sun trap at midday through to the afternoon in mid summer.

Bedrooms and bathroom
Upstairs there are a double and twin bedroom providing a high level of comfort with quality mattresses and bed linens. A luxurious Italian-styled bathroom complete with large bath, overhead rain shower and bidet, is the focal point of the second floor accommodation sat between the two bedrooms. Ideal for families, Sorgente Holiday Cottage also appeals to couples for breaks throughout the year. There is on-road parking for one car and space for surfboards, wetsuits and bicycles in the garden area.

Clean air
Un sistema di riciclaggio dell'aria con il calore installato nel cottage, permette di mantenere il cottage a bassi consumi energetici, e soprattutto mantiene l'ambiente fresco e asciutto , togliendo eventuale condensa e polvere, ideale per quelle persone che soffrono di allergie com asma e raffreddori da fieno.

The heat recovery system helps to meet targets of low energy consumption but also importantly keeps the home fresh and dry removing condensation and dust, ideal for those whose may have an allergy such as asthma or hay fever. It also helps prevent steamy mirrors in the bathroom. We are pleased that we are able to offer self catering accommodation more suited to asthma and allergy sufferers and therefore have a strict non-smoking, no pets policy.

An excellent touring base, the secluded beaches and quaint fishing villages of the Roseland Peninsula, the lizard Peninsula and the renowned Eden Project are within easy reach.

March 2016 (guest review)
My sister and I needed somewhere in Penryn to stay for a week whilst sorting out family matters. So, we had not come for sea, sun and sand, but more looking for a comfortable refuge to retreat to at the end of the day. Sorgente couldn't have been better at providing this; in spadefuls. It is the most delightful and tastefully renovated cottage. It retains old world charm with modern day comforts. The cottage was well equipped and everything, including all the linens and towels, were of a very high standard. Both bedrooms are spacious and we had plenty of room to hang clothes, with plenty of drawer spaces too. It also has a superb bathroom with all modern/new fittings. The vast overhead shower was divine. Also all the little goodies which included soaps and bath gels. Of an evening it was very cosy. We only used the CD player, but you could bring your iPod, DVDs as well and of course there is a TV. The free WiFi was a real bonus and made it very easy for us to carry out research and find local services. The communications and ease of booking and all the information provided by the owner was also top notch. The online description of the cottage is perfectly correct and the photography is truly representative of the accommodation. As we were not on a holiday we didn't visit local attractions - but of course one absolute must, if you enjoy good food, is a visit to Ricky Stein's restaurant and take away near the Maritime Museum in Falmouth. The most sumptious dinner was greatly enjoyed and appreciated. We can highly recommend this cottage. Jane & Cherry.

Sorgente was a well located and clean house to stay for our holiday. It was comfortable for our family - (2 kids 8 & 12.) The bathroom is lovely and spacious and the kitchen was pretty well equipped for the size. Really pleased as it was allergy free which is not always that easy to come across.

Lovely cosy stay, spacious for a couple. Very well maintained, luxury bathroom. Made to feel very welcome, even had a high chair out for us on arrival. Quick walk into penryn local shops or supermarket 1 mile away. We will definitely be back, thank you Alex

January 2016
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Sorgente over the New Year! The cottage is delightful in every way: comfortable and modern, functional and welcoming, clean and cosy. It was exactly what we wanted in a wonderful area of Cornwall that we were able to explore despite the weather. We would love to come back in the summer and experience the loooooong days instead of the long nights. I am sure Sorgente would be equally as excellent! Thank you.

December 2015
We really enjoyed our stay at Sorgente Cottage over the christmas period. The cottage is exactly as described and we wouldn't hesitate the stay again in the future. Alex ensured that we had all the information we needed and even arranged for a Xmas tree for our stay...thank you Alex! The cottage is close to the local shops and park and in a quiet area. Thank you for our lovely holiday. Alex & Kelly

What a lovely place to stay. Quiet and homely and very well equipped (the bathroom was my favourite!) .. Definitely felt like a home away from home. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Cornwall. Thank you!

July 2015
Sorgente is a very nice appartment which is well-fitted and clean! All rooms are comfortably furnished with modern amenities! Pennryn is a nice village with everything needed nearby and in the heart of Cornwall. Our tipp: Have a relaxed day at the St. Ives Bay beach near Hayle (search for Blue Bay Cafe)! Matthias and family

Sorgente is a great place to stay: very clean, modern, warm and comfortable. It's well located in Penryn and dealing with Alex was great. I was working while in town, so it was great to come back to such a lovely place each evening. I particularly liked the choice of artwork!

"Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. We have had a wonderful time. Everything is very well thought out and the cottage really is a comfortable place to stay. Recommend: the beaches at Polperro, Perranporth and St.Agnes. Fantastic food at the Pandora Inn - well worth a visit."

Sorgente comments 2011

"We had a lovely time here at Sorgente. The house was great for the four of us and was a brilliant base for exploring Cornwall. Couldn't fit it all into one week though! Our recommendations for a day out at St.Michael's Mount, Trelissick Gardens (National Trust or historic Scotland memberships came in handy!), the beaches at Gyllyngvase and St.Mawes. Our girls (aged 6 and 3) also enjoyed the train to St.Ives and the Park and Float into Falmouth. Thanks! Jennifer, Ross, Amy and Heather."

We had a great holiday, thank you! Amy (6) and Heather (3) 08/07/2011
