This is a real gem of a holiday hideaway, full of character with a snug cottage feel, a sunny private garden and off road parking. Situated in the quintessentially Cornish fishing village of Polperro, about 10 minute’s pleasant stroll to the harbour and beach, Mousehole Cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. A downstairs extra living room/playroom is an ideal spot for youngsters, where they can watch TV and DVD’s or play games, giving the adults some well-earned rest.  On the top floor a sunny lounge with feature fireplace is a cosy place to relax whatever the season and a few steps up from the kitchen door brings you to the sizeable rear garden. For families that love the coast there are several beaches within walking or driving distance and for those who enjoy the great outdoors, the South West Coastal path runs through Polperro and gives access to the miles of dramatic coastline, with its many secluded coves and stunning views.  Looe offers the attractions of a more traditional seaside town and further afield the famous Eden Project and the National Aquarium in Plymouth are well worth a visit.

Perfect cottage and perfect location, added bonus of car parking outside property.

August 2018

Lovely cottage, very quaint. Comfy beds. Great base to explore the area.

August 2018

We chose this cottage because I knew where it was and it had parking outside. It was at the high standard I have come to expect from Toad hall.

July 2018

This is a lovely cottage with the valuable addition of a private parking space and a private back garden. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage for a quiet holiday in Polperro.

August 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mousehole Cottage and hope to return there in the near future. It was extremely conveniently situated near the bus stop and Crumplehorn Inn & Mill. Mousehole Cottage was quaint but with added modern utilities ..... we absolutely loved it.

August 2017

My family and I had a really enjoyable stay at the MouseHole Cottage in Polpero. The cottage had everything we needed, was clean and well located for exploring Cornwall. Polpero is a beautiful harbour fishing village with a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. The cottage is well located to explore the Polpero area. I would highly recommend this cottage

May 2017

lovely stay helped by good weather

July 2015

If i was going to be picky the only thing i can think of is that the property doesn,t have a tumble dryer and given the nature of our climate having one at the property would be an absolute bonus, but other than that this property is a delight and i would not hesitate in recommending it

August 2013

The service from TOADHALL, was second to none, always helpful on the telephone, no mattter when I rung up, excellent pre holiday information and nice email welcoming us back. Will use you again and defo recommend.

June 2013

We have stayed many times in this cottage and love it more each time we stay. It is situated in an ideal spot with parking right outside so no need to carry the suitcases and other bags from the car park, It is a well-equipped cottage with towels and bedding supplied and has ample space to sleep six people easily without feeling overcrowded. The back garden is a real suntrap and the washing dries on the line in no time and for the more relaxing times the bar-b-q provided is a real bonus. This cottage is a real gem, a home from home and a must to try and has a successful combination of age and a modern touch and the stairs keep you fit after eating too much fudge!! It is located at the top end of the village but only a short walk from the shops at the bottom and of course only a few paces away from the nearest pub/restaurant. We love staying here and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a holiday cottage as both a relaxing stay or a base to further explore beautiful Cornwall.
