    “We really enjoyed our stay in the Lookout.”

    It is a very tastefully furnished house, well equipped and decorated with an eye for the detail. The view from the front rooms is spectacular! The house is a little older but very clean and Georgina, the housekeeper, and her husband are really friendly and supportive. It should be mentioned, though, that the house can‘t be reached by car at all. You have to carry all your luggage and the shopping up a steep and narrow little lane, which is a little tedious. We found parking quite difficult ...

    It is a very tastefully furnished house, well equipped and decorated with an eye for the detail. The view from the front rooms is spectacular! The house is a little older but very clean and Georgina, the housekeeper, and her husband are really friendly and supportive. It should be mentioned, though, that the house can‘t be reached by car at all. You have to carry all your luggage and the shopping up a steep and narrow little lane, which is a little tedious. We found parking quite difficult as well. We drive a rather large car and so we ended up parking the car well out of Mousehole up the hill most evenings. So more specific information in advance on these two aspects would be helpful and fair. Nevertheless, we would book the house again, since we really felt at home there. We think it is a pity that the garden is not in a better condition, though. It would be a really lovely place to sit. The lower lock of the front door blocks, so on our arrival it took us more than half an hour to open the door, which was not a pleasant experience after a long journey. We called ALL the numbers provided by Sykes (including the one of the local property manager), but couldn‘t reach anybody. So for about half an hour we were quite worried that we wouldn‘t have a place to stay the night. In the end we managed to turn the key, but we really think that lock should be changed. The house also provides a washing machine, which isn‘t mentioned in the description of the property. So that was a pleasant surprise.

The property

Just north of the town and providing stunning views over the harbour this stone built semi-detached Victorian cottage in Mousehole is spacious and charming.  Fireplace with electric fire, attractive garden and attic bedroom are just some of the features.

The living room has an impressive bay window which draws in the wonderful seascape over rooftops, and a fireplace for out of season cosiness.

Gather together for good food in the dining room or enjoy brunch around the kitchen bar.

The bedrooms are elegant and the master has a great view across the sea.

The attic bedroom is quaint and roomy with panelled walls, a sloping ceiling and a window framing the harbour below.

The cottage garden is pretty and creates the perfect spot for barbecue wizardry on the gravelled patio against the backdrop of sea and sky (children must be supervised).

Enjoy superb coastal views of beautiful Mounts Bay from this handsome seaward-facing Victorian house, just a few minutes stroll from the picturesque harbour in Mousehole.

Explore the narrow winding lanes of Mousehole with its galleries, eateries and traditional inns serving fresh local fayre and Cornish ales.

The small harbour is alive with colourful boats and has a gently sloping beach for safe bathing.

For that 'wow' factor and within a half hours drive, visit the granite cliffs and Mediterranean blue waters at Porthcurno Beach or the romance and drama of the open air theatre at Minack, carved from the granite cliff face and jutting precariously into the sea.

Penzance and Newlyn are a short drive away, and St Michael's Mount is the jewel in Cornwall's crown, perched opposite the long stretch of sandy beach at Marazion.

Perfect for friends and family to enjoy their stay in Mousehole in comfort and to use as a base to explore Cornwall.

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.
