Elevated from the hustle and bustle, yet in the heart of the charming fishing village of Mousehole, this is a great base for couples to explore one of Cornwall's hidden gems. Dating back to 1266, the tightly knitted streets are full of local granite-built cottages. The location is perfect for a stroll to a host of pubs, galleries, restaurants and shops, or as a base for touring Cornwall's breathtaking landscape, beaches and historic sites. There are also some fantastic walks to be had with the scenic South West Coast Path on your doorstep, as well as attractions such as Land's End, Sennen Cove, Porthcurno, Minack Theatre, St Michael's Mount and numerous beautiful National Trust properties all within 10 miles.

Nestled away from the bustling streets, a pedestrian path leads to this hidden gem, promising a breathtaking view as your reward. Step through the front entrance of this charming character cottage, where you can hang up your outer garments in the welcoming porch. Inside, the inviting glow of the lounge and dining area beckons, boasting a chic decor that harmonises with its surroundings. Sink into the sofa beside the wood burner or indulge in a captivating read by the window, all while stealing glances at the mesmerising vista beyond. The quaint kitchen is fully equipped to whip up holiday meals, so delight in a romantic dinner for two at the dining table. Upstairs, high ceilings frame a splendid bedroom adorned with serene furnishings, offering a tranquil retreat for a restful night's sleep. From your bedside, gaze out over the harbour and rooftops of Mousehole. There's also a modern and contemporary en-suite bathroom, ideal for a soak after a long day exploring.

Adjacent to the cottage, accessed by a series of steps, lies a secluded haven, a secret garden brimming with lush foliage, including mature banana plants, palm trees, and exotic blooms. Follow the winding pathway through this verdant oasis, leading to a patio terrace where you can dine alfresco or fire up the charcoal BBQ amidst nature.

“We had aimed to find somewhere very special to celebrate our 50th anniversary and there is no doubt that we found it. A beautiful cottage, the renovations thoughtfully designed; comfortable lounge, excellent kitchen and bedroomen suite. All this and a garden which is perhaps the real secret haven tucked down out of the wind and a delight to spend time in even when the weather is cool and cloudy. We have already started saving up for another visit and we cant wait to spend more time just drinking in those fabulous views of Mounts Bay”
