    The various artwork throughout was lovely & personal to the cottage. Although we don't holiday in Cornwall to watch TV or go on the internet, we think in this day and age a good sized TV in a living area & perhaps at least one other for children, and Wifi is almost expected! Also the recycling of the rubbish instructions & bins could be better. The parking was a bit of a challenge. Someone had parked a dirty rusty old van directly outside the front door. We had to park further down the main road. Neighbours to the cottage didn't park well either (if they'd have moved up more we would've been able to park nearer). This is obviously not the cottage owners fault and we really liked the cottage in general. Also John the owner dealt with us very pleasantly.***Owners Response*** Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback for Clovelly Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned. We are pleased to announce that since your stay we have now installed WiFi and purchased a 32' smart TV. We were very sorry to hear you experienced some difficulty parking, whilst guests are usually able to park immediately outside the cottage, this is not guaranteed and on occasions may need to park a little further back within the same layby. Fortunately there have been no further sightings of the rusty van! We are pleased to hear that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at Clovelly Cottage.

The property

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.

About the location


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.
