2nd year here, came back as enjoyed it so much, we really Like the cottage and almost certainly will go back, the parking is really good but the space is quite tight for a larger car, I did have a problem with a car parking really close to the right as you look at the bays but understand parking is very difficult in Looe, the parking is one of the major factor in staying at this cottage, thank you for a lovely place to stay.
Amazing cottage. Couldn’t fault anything. Really clean and inviting. Will definitely be returning
Stayed at this Cottage before, great place and very clean and tidy. good location and welcome Wine and Biscuits very nice. I'm sorry we forgot to empty the bin, only remembered on the way home.
Was a lovely little cottage with an ideal location. Perfect for two adults.
Lovely place to stay
Lovely cottage in a brilliant location. The wine, biscuits and toiletries were a lovely thought. We would definitely recommend this property for a family holiday.
Perfect Puffins ? so thoughtfully decorated and equipped with everything you need and more.They really have thought of everything you might need to make your stay more comfortable.We loved our stay at Puffins and weren't ready to leave-we miss the lovely view from the top floor bedroom every morning/evening.The parking space on the beach front was great and the cottage is in a perfect spot close to everything.Highly recommend.
One of best equipped cottages I have stayed in, really excellent
Perfect Puffins! This cosy cottage was just great for our family break. It was very well equipped, clean and close to both the beach and all of amenities of Looe town. We really appreciated the tea, coffee (and wine!) available on arrival and our girls especially enjoyed the fudge! The parking space was a bonus too, our average sized car fitted there fine. Thankyou for putting so much thought into this lovely holiday cottage.
An excellent cottage we would gladly stay there again great frailties great location great standard of furnishing at a very fair price, my one and only negative comment is the terrible WiFi , but this did not spoil our stay as there is more to life than tv and phones lol overall very very pleased
Thank you for your lovely review of The Puffins, Looe is such a magical place over the New Year. Your comment about the wi-fi is really helpful and as a result the owners have immediately upgraded to unlimited super-fast broadband in the cottage, extending the reach and more than doubling the speed of the existing wi-fi.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the thoughtful touch of the wine, fudge and fairings when we arrived was lovely and very much appreciated!
The cottage was fantastic. Although it is very small it had everything we needed and we'd highly recommend it. The welcoming gift was a lovely unexpected surprise. Thank you
We had a fab time in the cottage , the owners have thought of everything , hats off to them. We would definitely stay in that cottage again . Very clean everything we needed, and a very comfortable bed . First time I never had back ache. The only down fall was the weather.????But they even had umbrellas ????
GREAT LITTLE PLACE HOUSED THE FOUR OF US ALL ADULTS PERFECTLY EASY ACCESS FOR EVERYTHING WILL DEFINATELY USE TOAD HALL COTTAGES IN FUTURE MANY THANKS
The toaster set the trip off. A second set of keys would have been really useful as I went for a walk early morning and had to either post the keys back through the letterbox (and wake someone up to let me back in) or take the key or leave it in the keysafe rendering everyone locked in with no means of escape in an emergency. The cottage was beautiful, loved our stay-many thanks
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time at Puffins! It is a lovely property, and very popular. The owners of the cottage have arranged to supply a replacement toaster next week, and they have also let us know that when their new front door is fitted over the next few days, they will make sure they supply 2 sets of keys for future guests. Thank you for drawing both of these points to our attention, your feedback has been extremely useful. We hope to see you again.

We were so very grateful to your member of staff at the Polperro office who assisted us with our telephone enquiry as we were travelling on the M1 motorway. This enabled us to travel down overnight on Friday to the cottage arriving in the early hours of Saturday morning as the cottage was vacant and ready for occupancy.
Puffins is a lovely cottage in a fantastic position, a short stroll to the beach and lovely restaurants. The house is small but well equipped and very comfortable. The owners have done a lovely job modernising the property and providing everything you need. We really enjoyed our stay in Looe and will definitely go back! Thank you.
What a fantastic hidden gem this little cottage is. Think of it more as a modern well equipped flat but wow it is perfectly formed. It was a perfect friendly home from home for us (a couple) but as well as the main bedroom there is a small twin second bedroom on the first floor. The whole place is beautifully furnished and brilliantly fitted with everything you could possibly need, including internet, internet tv and radio, slow cooker, washer drier, hair drier, even fishing nets, games, dvd's and a sewing kit are all there! Lovely bottle of wine and tea coffee and biscuits on arrival, we made a beef bourguignon with our wine! Oil paintings on the wall, piping hot shower and bath and magnificent sea views over the roof tops from our bedroom on the top floor, the whole place is quality. When we arrived we were a little unsure about the narrow street away from the front but this turned out to be a real bonus as it is closed to traffic and there are hardly any passing pedestrians either, the house is tucked away and a sea of calm and yet within only a few metres of the beach, river, restaurants and pubs. We are probably biased as we love Looe and go most years but this holiday was special for us. We had great weather, Looe is a fantastic seaside resort there are lots of places to eat and drink and plenty of things to do, there is always something going on in the town. We loved our stay, Puffins is a pretty fisherman's cottage just one row back from the seafront in an amazing central location so close to everything, thank you so much for having us, we leave relaxed and refreshed with great memories of our holiday and hope to be back soon.
Perfect Puffins. We would like to thank you for letting us stay in your home, such a delight, cosy comfortable with everything we could possibly need. Looe has an excellent choice of pubs, restaurants and shops. So near the beach, nearer than a stones throw. We shall return....
The accommodation was extremely well equipped and feel this should be shown in advert to promote it better. Eg hairdryer, washing machine, slow cooker etc all available.
Fabulous location and perfect bijou cottage. Great views from the 2nd floor bedroom and light and airy and modern decor. Perfect size for a holiday cottage for 2 adults 2 kids, may be tight for 4 adults. Very friendly neighbours and locals. We found lots to do by day and evening. Toad Hall Cottages very helpful and a very smooth last minute break. Will definitely book again.
