    “Absolutely lovely cottage in a fab location.”

    Views were stunning. ...

    Views were stunning. Only issue is they have to make sure all heating is working in the winter as we had two rooms where the storage heaters didn't work and did not want to waste our holiday waiting for an electrician. This also meant we couldn't sit in the main bedroom to enjoy the views as it just wasn't warm enough. Also, the bed in the second room on the first floor was really creaky every time you moved. In winter, when it is darker, check in needs to be earlier as it is really difficult navigating Mousehole and where the house is, in the dark. Pre-warning about how busy it is at Christmas as well is needed. We really struggled parking on the first night because of the Christmas lights and the 4pm check-in completely clashed with this and made our arrival very stressful. The owner or Sykes could definitely have provided more information about this. Other than the above, I loved the house and location. Very comfortable and cosy. My little girl loved it too.

    Thank you for your feedback. The heaters have now been attended to. We have never had any comments on the bed before. Mousehole is a very busy, popular spot. We are sorry for these disruptions to your stay but are glad to hear of your positive comments. Property Owner

The property

Enjoy superb coastal views of beautiful Mounts Bay from this handsome seaward-facing Victorian house, just a few minutes stroll from the picturesque harbour in Mousehole.

Situated up a hill in an attractive garden, the house is spacious and charming; the living room has an impressive bay window which draws in the wonderful seascape over rooftops, and a fireplace for out of season cosiness.

Gather together for good food in the dining room or enjoy brunch around the kitchen bar.

The bedrooms are elegant and the master has a great view across the sea.

The attic bedroom is quaint and roomy with panelled walls, a sloping ceiling and a window framing the harbour below.

The cottage garden is pretty and creates the perfect spot for barbecue wizardry on the gravelled patio against the backdrop of sea and sky (children must be supervised).

There is a right of way to the neighbouring house and a small courtyard to the rear. Explore the narrow winding lanes of Mousehole with its galleries, eateries and traditional inns serving fresh local fayre and Cornish ales.

The small harbour is alive with colourful boats and has a gently sloping beach for safe bathing.

For that 'wow' factor and within a half hours drive, visit the granite cliffs and Mediterranean blue waters at Porthcurno Beach or the romance and drama of the open air theatre at Minack, carved from the granite cliff face and jutting precariously into the sea.

Penzance and Newlyn are a short drive away, and St Michael's Mount is the jewel in Cornwall's crown, perched opposite the long stretch of sandy beach at Marazion .

Parking for the house is at the paying car park within a few minutes walk, where a weekly ticket can be purchased.

The trolley provided is useful for carrying luggage.

About the location

MOUSEHOLE

Penzance 4 miles; St Ives 12 miles.

A delightful fishing village nestled on a hillside and spilling down to the shore. The picturesque harbour, surrounded by its maze of winding narrow streets, draws visitors from miles around, while in the distance St Michael's Mount stands proudly in the centre of Mounts Bay. A fabulous coastline and miles of spectacular walking characterise the area, with seabirds, seals and wild headlands leading just around the corner to Land's End. The Minack cliff-top theatre is a few miles along the coast, while reminders of the region's ancient past in the form of Dolmens and standing stones appear everywhere. St Ives, with its stunning beaches, beautiful harbour and narrow winding streets is just 12 miles away.

Note: Children need to be supervised in the garden.
Note: There are two car parks both within approx 3-5 min walk.
Note: There is a short hill to walk up to get to the property (approx 65 metres)
