½ mile from Mousehole, arguably the prettiest of Cornish fishing villages, are Trungle Cottages.
Dating back to the 18th cent.
No 3 is mid-row and has been beautifully restored to become an inviting holiday home.
Enter through stable doors to a bright kitchen and dining area with tiled floor, off which sliding doors lead to the cosy living room, heated by a wood burning stove set in a feature stone fireplace.
From the kitchen, steep stairs lead to two bedrooms – a stylish double room and a three person bunk room.
They share a shower-room.
At the front of the cottage is a decked seating area, ideal for 'sundowners' after a day of exploring the area.
Number Three is in an excellent location, handy for walking the Coast Path and a five minute stroll from a pub.
Just down the road, neighbouring Mousehole (pronounced 'Mouzzle' by the locals) has a selection of shops and good places to eat around its historic harbour.
Further afield at Newlyn, you can watch the fishing fleet landing its catch, or spend a day exploring Penzance and St Michaels Mount.
Take in a show at the internationally renowned Minack Theatre, a superb open air venue perched high on the cliffs, or at Lands’ End you'll find fun for all the family accompanied by breathtaking sea views.

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.
