    “Very comfortable Bay Fronted Victorian semi overlooking the harbour in Mousehole.”

    The views from the windows were an absolute joy. Mousehole itself, a maze of little alley ways and narrow streets - charming. Good access to the coastal footpath and other lovely walks and an easy 15 minute drive into Penzance. The house a joy to return to at the end of a day walking the coast path - or in the case of the younger members of the group - rock climbing; surfing; cycling... ...

    The views from the windows were an absolute joy. Mousehole itself, a maze of little alley ways and narrow streets - charming. Good access to the coastal footpath and other lovely walks and an easy 15 minute drive into Penzance. The house a joy to return to at the end of a day walking the coast path - or in the case of the younger members of the group - rock climbing; surfing; cycling... Lots of interest in the area -Tremenheere sculpture garden, Newlyn School at Penlee House in Penzance; St. Michael's Mount, Lamorna Cove - and much more. HOWEVER - the cottage details were not clear about the lack of vehicular access - my husband has a heart condition - and we would have appreciated advance notice about the hill/flights of steps up to the cottage. We might not have chosen this property had we known about the access which exacerbated his angina. Also the details in the cottage were not very clear about the recycling - Is it only glass? Surely not? (Apologies to the housekeeper for not emptying the recycling box which we left rather full of glass - I'd assumed the waste collection would be a day late due to the bank holiday - it wasn't!) But - despite the access - our three generational family group had a lovely holiday - Thank You The Lookout

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.
