Overview

A bustling fishing port until the mid 16th Century, the picturesque village of Mousehole nestles on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land’s End.

Today, its narrow, winding streets are lined with small shops, galleries and restaurants, while a pretty harbour edged with traditional, granite cottages crouches protected from the prevailing storms by two imposing breakwaters that give it its distinctive shape. Perfectly in keeping with Mousehole’s fishing port heritage, Mariner’s Cottage is an original 17th Century fisherman’s cottage with a charming, whitewashed facade and staggering views from every sea-facing window.

Recently refurbished and elegantly updated, this lovely home offers a bright and inviting space, with a combination of coast-inspired décor and authentic features, that create a chic and relaxing atmosphere throughout. Arranged over three floors, two lovely bedrooms can be found upstairs with a gorgeous master bedroom on the first floor and a sumptuous twin room on the upper. Both rooms have crisp, high quality linen and feature large sash windows; perfect for taking in the sweeping ocean scape views and enjoying the ever-changing moods of the sky. Downstairs, the delightful living area in calming, neutral tones is open-plan with the well-designed kitchen, and has an inviting sofa and two occasional chairs arranged cosily around a fabulous wood-burning stove*.

Stepping out through the stable door to the front of the cottage is a fantastic, enclosed waters’ edge garden with wonderful far-reaching views over Mount's Bay towards St Michael's Mount and Lizard Point. Comfortably furnished with a table and plenty of seating, it’s the ideal place for fresh-air dining or for enjoying a glass of bubbly while watching the sun set over the water.

Please note that this property is unsuitable for children under 10 years old due to the low wall separating the terrace from a large drop down to the water’s edge.

Welcome to Mousehole

Before you book one of our Mousehole holiday cottages, you need to know one thing. The name of this beautiful little resort is pronounced ‘mowzul’. Now that’s cleared up, let’s begin. Arriving in this sleepy fishing village is a little bit like stepping into a fairytale. Found just three miles from Penzance, Mousehole is one of those destinations where time seems to stand still. Boats bob in the harbour, waves lap the beach and cafes serve the catch of the day. If you want to experience the Cornwall of days gone by, this is the perfect place to do it.

Sweet waterfront abode
5/5

Charming and well designed 2 BR spot right on the waters edge. Enjoy coffee in the morning sun on the front veranda and beers for happy hour. Spacious master bath. Tight staircase and top floor bedroom has little room on the sides of the bed. Decor was well done. Laundry in unit. No traffic as it’s a pedestrian path. It’s a sweet spot.

The outdoor facilities (for the seating area) are very dirty, so it was not posssible to enjoy the wonderful view!

One of the loveliest cottages to stay in
5/5

You can’t fault this cottage it’s so special to wake up in the morning to the sea which is right there and the village mousehole a short stroll, so bobbing down to the Delhi isn’t a chore to get things in for breakfast etc. parking wasn’t an issue for us we parked in the harbour which cost us £5 a day, we thought very reasonable. In fact we didn’t drive the car the whole week we were there, we count the local bus which passes through mousehole every 15 mins and takes you to Newlyn and Penzance or you can easily walk to either quite easily. We didn’t struggle to find anywhere to eat probably some of the best sea food you can get. The cottage is in the best location in Mousehole. Very clean, beautifully styled and up-to date with everything you need for a clean comfortable stay. Thank you.

Siobhan, 20 May 2023

Hi Siobhan, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am very pleased to hear you really enjoyed your stay, made use of the location and enjoyed looking out onto the sea in the morning. We wish to welcome you back sometime in the future. Best Wishes, Luxury Coastal.
