    Since our last stay, the sofas and bathroom have been updated - lovely! Tea bags, milk and a cake were provided on arrival (very welcome). The only down-side to the holiday (which is nothing to do with the cottage at all) was that the price of parking in the town has risen steeply since our previous stay two years ago. If you are lucky enough to get a space down in the harbour, you can park for 24 hours for £3. If not, the other parking spaces have become very pricey - previously you could park long the parade overnight for free. It's not the end of the world, but if you're stying for a week, it can add another £100 to your stay.

The property

In the heart of Mousehole, one of Cornwall's prettiest villages, 200 yards from the pub, shops and harbour is Mural Cottage.

This quirky, split-level, 18th cent., terraced cottage is a Grade II listed former fisherman’s cottage.

Entering on the ground floor, the cosy sitting room features a fun mural scene of Mousehole’s past.

Also on the ground floor is a pretty single bedroom.

On the lower ground floor, you'll find the large fitted kitchen with dining area, a bathroom and additional cloakroom.

From the hall, steep stairs lead to the second floor and two more bedrooms, both with window seats for taking in the view – a king size double and one with two singles, which has a view of the sea over rooftops.

Outside you can load and unload the car before parking in the car park, 200 yards away.

Mural Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring Mousehole (pronounced 'Mouzzle' locally), which has a selection of shops and good places to eat around its historic harbour.

Further afield, it’s worth spending a day exploring Penzance and spectacular St Michaels Mount, or take in a show at the internationally renowned Minack Theatre, a superb open air venue perched high on the cliffs above stunning Porthcurno.

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.
