Sitting right in the heart of charismatic Mousehole, this charming cottage provides cosy and comfortable accommodation in this beautiful fishing village on the West Cornwall coast.
A short stroll will take you to the quayside where locals swim, launch their kayaks and fishermen still land their daily catch of fresh mackerel, lobster and crab and with amenities along the harbour, this peaceful village is an ideal spot for a family holiday.
Three lovely bedrooms are on the first floor and downstairs you will find a well equipped, modern kitchen and a comfortable lounge.
Pop out into the small courtyard garden and take in some sun while you enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple.
The picturesque harbour area is surrounded by narrow streets where you will find art galleries, gift shops, a general store and restaurants and at low tide, you can enjoy a safe, sandy beach, an idyllic spot for sketching and imaginative photography.
Pack a Cornish picnic and enjoy a magical show under the stars at the world famous, open air Minack Theatre.
A short drive will take you to Marazion and the sunny town of Penzance, bustling with attractive streets housing antique and craft shops, pubs and eating houses.
If you love golden sands, Porthcurno Beach is glorious with its Mediterranean feel and the popular Sennen Beach is a paradise for surfers, both within easy driving distance.
This is an area favoured by many, so make sure you book your family holiday early, to avoid disappointment.
