  • “I think the issue with parking really does need to be made more apparent.”

    We were travelling with a toddler and new baby and on occasions, the only parking spot in the entire village was on entry - a one and a half mile walk away! I appreciate things are unusual this year and that there are a lot more tourists taking up valuable parking places but this made things very difficult for us and quite frankly, miserable. Carrying a new baby, getting a toddler to walk a mile and a half with three bags of shopping from a supermarket is just horrendous. ...

    We were travelling with a toddler and new baby and on occasions, the only parking spot in the entire village was on entry - a one and a half mile walk away! I appreciate things are unusual this year and that there are a lot more tourists taking up valuable parking places but this made things very difficult for us and quite frankly, miserable. Carrying a new baby, getting a toddler to walk a mile and a half with three bags of shopping from a supermarket is just horrendous. Add to this, there's a general air of 'dislike' of tourists in the village - probably from a fear of a spike in Covid cases - which showed itself as abrupt, rudeness from many business owners (not all). I've watched as other tourists have been spoken to rudely, fingers jabbed at them by residents just because they mentioned the parking situation! Yes, again I appreciate their frustrations but if they want money into their local economy, they have to learn to treat their visitors with more respect. Overall, the combined situation made this a challenging and disappointing holiday.

The property

In the heart of Mousehole, 200 yards from the pub, shops and harbour, a split-level, terraced, 18th cent., Grade II listed, fisherman’s cottage with a tiny, traffic-free lane at the back.

Front door from little no-through road to hall; cosy living room (TV/DVD) dominated by a fun mural scene of Mousehole’s past and good pictures; on the same floor, a single bedroom.

Stairs down to large fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker, TV/DVD); bathroom (suite, shower over bath); loo; and back door to lane.

From the hall, steep stairs up to two more bedrooms with window seats - a double (5' bed), and one with two singles, washbasin and view of the sea over rooftops.

Sleeps maximum of 5, including babies.

Loading and unloading outside; car park, 200 yards.

A quirky little cottage, excellent for exploring Mousehole and west Cornwall. Mousehole: perhaps the prettiest Cornish fishing village; horseshoe of granite cottages, shops, good restaurant, cafés, pub round its harbour.

Little sandy harbour beach.

Good walks.

Newlyn (busy fishing harbour), 1 mile.

Penzance, 2; Porthcurno (Minack Theatre), 8; Sennen (good sandy beach, surf school), 10; Land’s End, about 12.

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: This property sleeps a maximum of 5, including babies.
