About Mariners Cottage (sleeps 4), Mousehole
A bustling fishing port until the mid 16th Century, the picturesque village of Mousehole nestles on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land’s End.
Today, its narrow, winding streets are lined with small shops, galleries and restaurants, while a pretty harbour edged with traditional, granite cottages crouches protected from the prevailing storms by two imposing breakwaters that give it its distinctive shape. Perfectly in keeping with Mousehole’s fishing port heritage, Mariner’s Cottage is an original 17th Century fisherman’s cottage with a charming, whitewashed facade and staggering views from every sea-facing window.
Recently refurbished and elegantly updated, this lovely home offers a bright and inviting space, with a combination of coast-inspired décor and authentic features, that create a chic and relaxing atmosphere throughout. Arranged over three floors, two lovely bedrooms can be found upstairs with a gorgeous master bedroom on the first floor and a sumptuous twin room on the upper. Both rooms have crisp, high quality linen and feature large sash windows; perfect for taking in the sweeping oceanscape views and enjoying the ever-changing moods of the sky. Downstairs, the delightful living area in calming, neutral tones is open-plan with the well-designed kitchen, and has an inviting sofa and two occasional chairs arranged cosily around a fabulous wood-burning stove.
Stepping out through the stable door to the front of the cottage is a fantastic, enclosed waters’ edge garden with wonderful far-reaching views over Mount’s Bay towards St Michael’s Mount and Lizard Point. Comfortably furnished with a table and plenty of seating, it’s the ideal place for fresh-air dining or for enjoying a glass of bubbly while watching the sun set over the water.
Please note that this property is unsuitable for children under 10 years old due to the low wall separating the terrace from a large drop down to the water’s edge. The property accepts one small dog.
