Situated in the heart of Polperro in Cornwall and just five yards from the harbour where local fishing boats land their catch, Dene Cottage provides an attractive, comfortable hideaway in which to relax and get away from it all. Recently tastefully and extensively refurbished, the cottage has beamed ceilings, wood burning stoves and has been decorated to show off its deceptively spacious rooms to their best advantage. There is also the benefit of a private sunny courtyard at the back with access to The South West Coastal Path, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding coastline. The popular seaside town of Looe is only a short drive away and the beautiful North and South Cornwall coasts are easily accessible by car.

Steps up to the front door. Sitting room with twin sofas, ornamental woodburner, TV with BT Vision and DVD. Open plan kitchen/diner with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, dining table to seat four and a feature fireplace fitted with a pot-bellied stove (for display only). Stairs up to the first floor. Spacious master double bedroom with feature fireplace (for display only) and 4ft 6in double bed, plus a single sofa bed. Second double bedroom with 4ft 6in double bed, fitted wardrobe and hand basin. Family bathroom with bath, shower over, hand basin and WC.

Walled courtyard and decking area with table and cahirs and other garden furniture including a bench. Access via steps and a gate directly onto the cliff path.

In the main car park (charges apply). Alternatively, Toad Hall Cottages have some spaces to rent on a first come, first served basis in the village - please enquire at time of booking.

July 2017

Tina was a very friendly, caring and helpful host. She worked hard to ensure everything was well prepared for our arrival which was much appreciated.

June 2017

This is our third stay in Dene Cottage and we plan to go back again next year. The cottage is very clean and very well equipped. Tina was very helpful and called to check that all was ok which was a nice touch. The weather was great so we made full use of the courtyard garden.

June 2017

We had a lovely stay that was very enjoyable, just too hot in bed at night.

April 2017

We had a fantastic holiday at Dene cottage and we all agree it will not be our last holiday at this excellent cottage. The cottage is ideally situated in the centre of Polperro and we cannot fault the actual cottage. Excellent.

November 2016

Our cottage would have benefited from a stair gate for our baby and dog.

Friendly and experienced staff at toad hall who made booking of cottage and car parking easy and from start to finish of our booking arrival and departure everything went smoothly.

May 2016

Toad Hall Cottages are an excellent company. So helpful right from our initial enquiry. We found our perfect cottage but it said they only accept 1 dog. We have 2. They rang the owner for us who agreed we could bring both as they were well behaved. They also helped us contact the owner of the cottage when we couldn't get hold of her to locate the key safe instructions. Such brilliant service. A fantastic company who we will use again and again! It's just a shame you only cater for the West Country ... we also love Snowdonia and the Lakes and so it would be great if you covered these areas too!!

October 2015

Will book again for next year

July 2015

everything needed to help to have a easy stress freee holiday was done for us.

July 2015

Very happy with the service provided by Toad Hall Cottages, lovely people who know the area they operate within so could make an informed choice will be booking again soon :-)

June 2015

The cottage is great and spotlessly clean. This is the second time we have stayed in Dene Cottage and hope to stay again next year. The garden/courtyard is a real sun trap and we would have loved to have had breakfast/lunch outside but there was no table.

<p>We are very glad to say that a table and chairs was in the charming garden at Dene Cottage from Easter 2015 onwards.</p>

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location, very handy for all the local walks and eateries. Very nice having outside space to sit and relax, very private and sheltered, real sun spot.

June 2015

We were very pleased with Dene Cottage it was excellently presented, more spacious than we were expecting and had a lovely outside courtyard. It was a really nice place to stay and made our holiday all the more enjoyable

October 2014

We stayed at Dene Cottage in Polperro for the second time, and found the refurbishing had been done to a high standard and would certainly recommend to friends and also we will return next year.

July 2014

Our correspondence gave the cottage owners mobile phone number for key collection which was incorrect. The key was held ayt the local office.
