Guestbook comments from the owner

Having had a rocky start with car breaking down 40 miles into our journey, getting towed home & restarting 7 hrs. later in a hired car, it was so welcoming to eventually arrive at this fantastic cottage and be greeted with home made scones. Especially as it was late and no food to be had! Pubs etc. close early beware! We had a lovely week visiting the many resorts of Cornwall, thanks to Melanie & Phillip. The cottage is everything we wanted and we couldn't ask for more. (Except mobile phone reception at Mousehole) Ha Ha.

We would certainly recommend "Cobbler's Cottage" and hope to revisit again. The Kings Arms pub is also a good & well priced meal out in the evening.

Thanks, Melanie & Phillip for a lovely holiday.

Mousehole is a beautiful unspoilt village of quaint cottages and narrow streets clustered around the old harbour. The village has much natural beauty; stunning coastal walks, pebble beaches with rock pools and a sandy harbour which still has a few working fishing boats. The renowned 2 Fore Street restaurant and the Ship Inn, the village store/post office are all just 200 metres from Cobbler’s. Many interesting galleries with live-in artists and the Old Coastguard Hotel are all close by.

The village is beautiful at any time of year whether it is bathed in summer sunshine or lashed with dramatic winter storms. The spectacular lights around the harbour and dotted around the village at Christmas and the New Year attract visitors from all around the world.

Mousehole is well placed to explore the West Penwith area which boasts many attractions such as the surf haven of Sennen, beautiful beaches such as Porthcurno also the home to the Minack Theatre, St. Ives and the famous Tate Gallery, Marazion and St. Michael’s Mount and further afield the city of Truro, the Lizard Peninsula, Falmouth, Newquay and the Eden Project and so on…….

Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Cobbler's Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is beautifully maintained with everything you need for comfort and fun. Mousehole is a welcoming village, and Melanie and her husband are most welcoming hosts. We so enjoyed meeting Melanie and learning more about the history of the cottage and the amazing village of Mousehole. There is so much to explore in the area, and so much to enjoy in the village that is just steps away from the cottage. Melanie responds immediately to emails and requests, and her cream tea and other welcoming touches make you feel at home immediately. We hope to come back again to this magical place! Thank you so much for a most memorable holiday.

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

A perfect position so near the harbour and restaurants. Local post office ideal for bread etc., used the busses to explore surrounding areas. Cottage had everything needed for a great holiday.

A lovely cottage in a wonderful setting.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely and truly relaxing stay at Cobblers. Very well equipped kitchen for cooking those lovely fish dishes.

Ideally placed to explore this part of Cornwall. There is really good bus service from Mousehole which can eliminate the use of your car, which you can leave in the garage that comes with the cottage.

Melanie and Philip were both charming and very helpful.

Looking forward to our next stay already.

Thank you Melanie and Philip.

We loved our stay at Cobblers Cottage. It was very well equipped with everything we needed and Melanie encouraged us to ask if there was anything else she could do. Wonderful sleeps in the comfy bed, good shower, comfy sofas, everything we love was walkable. Mousehole is truely stunning. We plan on returning to Cobblers. Thank you so much Melanie & Philip. X

Full of character in great location

  • 5 of 5

Cottage has everything you could want from a holiday home and more. Fantastic location and great to have a garage in yard next to cottage.

Loved having coffee or lunch in little yard at back where you get a sea view. Cottage has a quirky layout but we enjoyed all of its features.

Would stay here again for a return to marvellous Mousehole. Thank you Melanie for being perfect welcoming host.
