Beautiful cottage lovely situation. Very grateful for your kindness when booking and balance was due and for your understanding of need for an extension; because of the way you dealt with this we booked another cottage with you for the preceding week and will recommend the company to friends.

May 2019

Lovely cottage in a great location & wonderful views, elderly or arthritic guest might find the stairs a challenge especially as the only loo is on 3 rd floor.

April 2019

December 2018

We had an amazing stay. Very cozy clean and comfortable with great views from each room. Jason left us a welcome bottle of wine and a pint of milk which was a very thoughtful touch. We would certainly stay there again.

September 2018

Lovely cottage and location had a very enjoyable time

July 2018

Lovely well equipped cottage in a perfect location excellent value for money.

May 2018

We had a wonderful week. It's a really beautiful, quirky little cottage that is extremely well cleaned / maintained. The view of Polperro Harbour from the bedroom window was better than any other we could find on postcards or other photos. Quite outstanding. Many thanks !

May 2018

Being right opposite the Museum and the it's tea rooms is a real bonus. Great breakfasts and coffee! Also a lovely place to sit and watch the Harbour.

May 2018

Loved it!

May 2018

A wonderful holiday. The caretaker of the cottage couldn't have been more helpful. He rang to say it was ready early if we were arriving early and even called round to ask if we were warm enough.

May 2018

Sorry, as above! There possibly could be something about heating in the information folder? Just a thought. I was delighted that there was no longer the requirement to feed shillings into the electric meter thingy...great improvement on the last time I stayed in the cattage.

April 2018

Great little cottage in a good location. Wine and Biscuits on our arrival which was appreciated. We will book again.

April 2018

January 2018

Hand written welcome card, bottle of rosè and biscuits as well as a pint of fresh milk. Put a warm smile on our faces....a good start to a great mini break. Looking forward to another visit.

November 2017

Yes we thoroughly enjoyed our week in Farthing cottage. We just love its location. This was the third time we have stayed in the cottage and hope to do so again

May 2017

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay...made all the more special by my boyfriend proposing to me in the living room the day before my birthday . The welcome pack was a lovely touch...and the bottle of wine was a super bonus !! We shall certainly be returning to Farthing Cottage either later this year and certainly next year.

Congratulations!! Obviously the romantic ambiance of the cottage convinced your boyfriend to do the right thing. All the best from everyone here and we hope to see you again for the honeymoon!

April 2017

We had stayed at Farthing Cottage a few years ago and it was even lovelier than before. A cosy,warm cottage with a good standard of furnishings and well equipped. We had a very enjoyable stay in Polperro. Thank you Toad Hall Cottages for efficient booking and helpful staff.

March 2017

Very nice cosy cottage ( a bit disappointed there was no welcome pack it seems on reading the visitors book that sometimes you and sometimes you don't ) but overall may use the cottage again

March 2017

Beautiful little cottage It's our 2nd stay in your cottages. We hope to return again next year.

October 2016

The only criticism I had of Farthing Cottage was the pound in the slot meter which can be a hazard your first visit. It caught me out my first night there and left me flailing around in utter darkness trying to get to the meter from upstairs, and then struggling to put the pound in! I did eventually find the torch which had been thoughtfully left in the meter cupboard which was a big help, and went out next day to buy another LED torch to keep upstairs in case it should happen again!

July 2015

The cottage was gorgeous and the location together with the views were great. Just be aware that the harbour is a working fishing village harbour and as such the fishing boats and seagulls wake up early so if you are a light sleeper they might just wake you up. Also if you need a shower remember to put the hot water on a hour or so before you shower (switch in cupboard at top of stairs near bedroom puts hot water on) Polperro is a great place with friendly people and good places to eat, if you are thinking about stopping there do it and book via Toad Hall a very professional and hassle free company which I will use and recommend to anybody visiting Cornwell.

March 2015

Excellent holiday, cottage was very cosy with beautiful views

September 2014

The Toad Hall person who I met on the Saturday we arrived was wonderfully helpful....we'd come down on the motorbike but the camber on the reserved parking space in the main car park wasn't suitable. When I called into the office to explain the issue she very quickly sorted us out with another reserved space the was suitably flat and had the added bonus of being further down the village....very impressed by the service. Cottage was wonderful, comfortable and with great views... and the wine was a great welcome present!

September 2014

This was our first experience with Toad Hall Cottages. From the time of booking and throughout the holiday we couldn't have been more looked after. We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend Toad Hall Cottages.

August 2014

Excellent service from start to finish. a lovely added little treat with the arrival package of wine, tea, coffee and biscuits

July 2014

We love Polperro and have been visiting the village for forty-six years on a regular basis. We have used Toad Hall as well as other reputable cottage companies and we have never been let down. It was our first stay in Farthing Cottage and it had everything that we required to make our stay comfortable. We had a wonderful time. We will be back hopefully in September, November and December to welcome in 2015.

April 2014

The owners were very accommodating as we had to leave a day early (on the Friday) so as the cottage was empty the week before they allowed us to stay from Friday to Friday rather than the usual Saturday to Saturday.

May 2013

We had a great stay in lovely Polperro.
