    The various artwork throughout was lovely & personal to the cottage. Although we don't holiday in Cornwall to watch TV or go on the internet, we think in this day and age a good sized TV in a living area & perhaps at least one other for children, and Wifi is almost expected! Also the recycling of the rubbish instructions & bins could be better. The parking was a bit of a challenge. Someone had parked a dirty rusty old van directly outside the front door. We had to park further down the main road. Neighbours to the cottage didn't park well either (if they'd have moved up more we would've been able to park nearer). This is obviously not the cottage owners fault and we really liked the cottage in general. Also John the owner dealt with us very pleasantly.***Owners Response*** Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback for Clovelly Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned. We are pleased to announce that since your stay we have now installed WiFi and purchased a 32' smart TV. We were very sorry to hear you experienced some difficulty parking, whilst guests are usually able to park immediately outside the cottage, this is not guaranteed and on occasions may need to park a little further back within the same layby. Fortunately there have been no further sightings of the rusty van! We are pleased to hear that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at Clovelly Cottage.

The property

A mile inland from Mousehole by hedgerow lane, in the ancient seaward-facing hamlet of Sheffield, surrounded by farmland, a thick-walled cottage snuggled between its neighbours with fine long views out to sea and along the coast from upstairs.

Built in 1850, it’s now a comfy home full of original art and craft work and quirkiness.

At the back, an enclosed lawned garden with sea glimpses.Inner porch (coat hooks/boot space) into living room with big inglenook (woodburner), slate floor, Smart TV, WiFi; kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with tiled floor; sunroom with comfy sofa/chairs and door to garden; loo.

From the living room, steep, half-spiral stairs up to three bedrooms - two double (one with 5' bed, the other with limited clothes-hanging space), both with great views, and a single; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

A unique cottage; lane walk to pub ½ mile away at Paul; great walks along the Coast Path, ¾ mile. 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


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.
