More about the property
The name Sorgente, an Italian word meaning 'water source', is quite befitting for this traditional character cottage because not only is it within a short stroll of the scenic river and quayside at Penryn, but also because it can be extended to mean 'source of energy' - the very substance of a relaxing and re-energising holiday. Newly refurbished to a high standard, Sorgente combines the beauty of period features with state-of-the-art amenities such as a heat recovery system (benefitting allergy/asthma sufferers) and a Pozzani water filter. Solid oak flooring, traditional sash double glazed windows and thick stone walls create a timeless backdrop for a modern interior with a distinctly Mediterranean flavour, inspired by the owner's time spent in Italy. The spacious open plan living room is equipped with a wood burner and patio doors leading to a sunny enclosed garden (please supervise children). Upstairs is a double and twin bedroom providing a high degree of comfort with quality mattresses and bed linen. A luxurious bathroom with a rain shower, bidet and Italian porcelain tiles completes the first floor accommodation. An excellent touring base, the cathedral city of Truro, the secluded beaches and quaint fishing villages of the Roseland Peninsula are within easy reach. The renowned Eden Project is within one hours drive. An excellent holiday location, Penryn is one of Cornwall's most ancient towns and is now a conservation area bestowing a wealth of old world charm, character and history, most evident from its impressive Tudor and Georgian architecture. Within a short drive is Falmouth, Cornwall's internationally recognised seaport and home to the world's third largest natural harbour. This is a vibrant year round resort offering something for everyone with world class beaches, restaurants, shops and a coastal golf course. It boasts a flourishing contemporary arts scene with numerous galleries and embraces its cultural heritage with the celebrated National Maritime Museum. Parking can be found nearby.

We had a lovely stay at Sorgente. The wine and scones were a lovely touch and went down a treat. The location is good for getting around...
