A mile from Mousehole, arguably Cornwall's prettiest village, is Clovelly Cottage.
Surrounded by farmland and snuggled between its neighbours, this traditional stone cottage was built in 1850.
Now a comfy home, the cottage is full of original art and craft work.
In the sitting room a stone inglenook fireplace houses a wood burning stove, whilst the quirky kitchen adjoins a bright garden room which overlooks the lawn.
From the sitting room, steep, half-spiral stairs lead to three bedrooms – a king size double, and a standard double, both with long views out to sea, and a single room.
They share the family bathroom.
From the safely enclosed, lawned garden at the back of the cottage it's possible to glimpse the sea beyond.
Clovelly Cottage is about 3/4 mile from the Coast Path - perfect those who love to walk.
Neighbouring Mousehole (pronounced 'Mouzzle' locally) 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.
Three bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x double and 1 x single. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with wood burning stove. Basin and WC. Garden room.
