We had a lovely holiday. Location near the harbour was excellent. The cottage is very nice and comfortable. I would stay again. Toad Hall staff are very helpful. Driving into the village to drop off luggage outside the cottage was a nightmare on a busy Saturday afternoon - road is super narrow. Also the parking spaces in Landaviddy Lane aren't that easy to get out of although it was handy to have the car just a few minutes walk away.

We don't know how Tina could bare to part with the cottage, We wish the new owners all the very best wishes, and would like to thank them for allowing us to sharing the cottage :) for a couple of weeks :) ! We had a really lovely time at 'Dene Cottage' in Polperro. Thanks again for the use of the cottage (it being our second visit :) !

September 2018

The cottage was very clean and comfortable.

August 2018

We had a brilliant time!

July 2018

Always a pleasure to stay in Dene cottage in Polperro, cottage is so homely and Polperro is so welcoming, had a lovely stay at the cottage, lovely little shops, bars, great food and lastly excellent cream teas.

June 2018

This is the fifth time we have stayed in Dene Cottage and we have already booked for next year. Toadhall and the cottage owner are always extremely helpful.

May 2018

We can honestly say we had a really good holiday whilst we were staying at Dean Cottage its beautifully decorated and furnished, with all the appliances you need, We did meet Tina the owner and she was lovely and helpful, The only negative thing anyone with problems going up or down stairs may find difficulty getting from street level to the front door as there are several high steps, although there is an Hand rail, but the cottage is quite a way from the main car park, Toad Hall cottages does have a few parking spaces closer but still at least a 5 minute walk, You can get a car to Dean cottage to drop off and pick up luggage but there is no parking allowed, however to put this into perspective Polperro and I think all of Cornwall appears to be hill country although this was my first visit to Cornwall so I could be wrong. Over all its a lovely cottage to be able to use for an holiday and less than 100 yards from the Harbour, and quieter than you may think at night, I think we may go back again next year if we can.

October 2017

July 2017

Always enjoy staying in Polperro and staying in Dene cottage makes our stay perfect.

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.

July 2016

Toad hall cottages were also very helpful on our arrival we had a problem with broken key in car park padlock which was dealt with without delay ....would also like to recommend Toad Hall for their on going Excellent service!!!

July 2016

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>

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.
