Winding your way down narrow, cottage-lined streets, past picture galleries and independently owned shops, down to the harbour with its sailing boats and sea views; life in Mousehole is picturesque and carefree; a dreamy holiday destination on Cornwall’s south coast.

Salt Loft is just the place you’ll want to call home when staying in this lovely seaside town; where original features compliment contemporary coast-inspired furnishing to form a space that’s as relaxing to be in as it is lovely to look at.

Set just a few metres back from the seafront, this authentic Cornish fisherman’s loft offers four guests a superb retreat away from the bustle of busy everyday life. Grade II listed, the cottage packs in original features by the bucket-load, and these combined with modern elements of a recent refurbishment create an idyllic luxury sanctuary to retreat to after days spent exploring the coast. Arranged over three floors, the first floor entrance to the property is through a stable door which opens into a whitewashed living room with stripped floor boards and original stone walls.

A sash window & seat nestles into the chunkiest of window reveals letting plenty of light in, overlooking the narrow harbour streets, while a low beamed ceiling and rustic hearth with period style stove add a warmth and cosiness to the space. The soft furnishings are understated and gorgeous with palette of neutral tones infusing a sense of calm and elegance. Downstairs on the ground floor a Shaker-style kitchen has been well thought-out in design to offer plenty of worktop space as well as make an inviting space to share conversations and mealtimes together. The cottage’s two bedrooms can be found on the top floor. Each room is the height of comfort with deep luxury mattresses fitted with high spec cool percale bed linen for the ultimate nights sleep & softest fluffy towels. The rooms have original floorboards, high pitched ceilings with exposed A frames, feature circular windows with sunken spotlights, with the master bedroom boasting sea views over the village to St Clements Isle and beyond.

Further afield and easily reached by car, lie the spectacular town and beach of Marazion in one direction, and Lamorna Cove and Pedn Vounder beaches in the other. A must-visit location on many a travel publication’s bucket list, Pedn Vounder Beach is just a twenty- minute drive away and has crystal clear turquoise water edging a crescent of fine white sand; perfect for days spent relishing the Cornish sunshine.

Adding to Mousehole’s repertoire of things to do and see in the area, the town’s pretty harbour is home to a handful of fantastic, shops, restaurants and cafes; and its terrific position on Cornwall’s south coast means that, just a short distance away are the likes of Porthcurno, The Minnack Theatre, Porthleven Harbour, St Michael’s Mount and St Ives.

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.
