This stylish two bedroom cottage has been lovingly refurbished with comfort in mind and is set minutes from one of Cornwall's prettiest harbours in this iconic fishing village. The open plan living space flows seamlessly through the kitchen out to a private patio garden. It's the perfect spot for a leisurely breakfast before exploring Mousehole with its excellent galleries, restaurants, shops and pubs tucked away down its higgledy-piggledy lanes. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a sense of calm with its neutral tones and sea views. After a day exploring you’ll be ready to sink into the king size bed and drift off to sleep. The second double bedroom is quietly located at the rear and next to it is the luxury shower room with its rainfall shower.
Mousehole is Cornwall at its absolute best and it’s obvious as to why the iconic fishing village is such a popular location. Its origins date back as far as the 12th century when it was the main fishing port in Mounts Bay, and much of its old-world charm has remained. You can feel the history when you stroll around its higgledy-piggledy lanes.
The village hugs the coastline and is protected by Raginnis Hill, making it a real suntrap to soak up the Cornish sun. Mousehole is also a foodie hot-spot, with a good selection of restaurants, cafes, two delis, and the working harbour of Newlyn being in easy reach. Mousehole harbour lights are perhaps the most famous attraction, when hundreds of people each year come to see the village illuminated by Christmas lights. Choose to make the most of the walks and places to visit within walking distance or use as a base to explore from and retreat back to. With so much within a half an hour drive you can really enjoy the best of the far west of Cornwall.
The entrance porch has boot and coat storage with an internal door through to the open plan living space. The central hub of the home with its wonderful blend of comfort and style offers plenty of space for everyone to relax after a day of activities on the comfortable sofa and armchair under the window. Gather everyone together for a movie night on the large Smart TV or just to reminisce on the day's adventures.
