About Melanie Stephens

I was born in Mousehole and have lived here all my life, so obviously know the area well. Mousehole is a beautiful village, which still remains unspoilt. I enjoy meeting guests and hope that they will love the village as much as I do! "Cobbler's Cottage" is part of my family home which originally incorporated two cottages. However, as my husband & I are now retired we have split the property back to its original state and live in one cottage and let the other.

Why Melanie Stephens chose Mousehole

It is my family home which has been in the family for at least 75 years.

What makes this cottage unique

It is a beautiful character property which is situated in the heart of the village, being just 50 metres from the harbour. Luckily, we have our own private parking which is a real benefit.

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.

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.

Excellent location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property , with everything you needed. Listing was accurate, it was very clean, we did mention some of the door spindles were a little long and just needed a little attention, but this was very minor. Good service and would certainly recommend the property. Local shops and restaurants/bars were great, particularly 2 Forestreet. Enjoyed some great local walking and a visit to the Minack.

Cosy home from home cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is superbly situated in the centre of Mousehole, close to several excellent places to eat. It is warm and comfortable and we really felt as though we were coming “home” every time we returned from our days out. The owners were friendly and helpful and kindly left us some lovely goodies on our arrival. We would love to return.

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, which has an excellent restaurant & beer garden overlooking the beach 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 with it's stunning sandy beaches, fabulous restaurants, art galleries and the famous Tate Gallery, Marazion and St. Michael’s Mount and further afield the city of Truro with its lovely Cathedral, the Lizard Peninsula, Falmouth, Newquay and the Eden Project and so on……. The fishing port of Newlyn is just a 10 minute drive & from here you can buy fresh fish & shellfish, Newlyn also has art galleries & a cinema. Penzance is also in the beautiful Mounts Bay & has the renowned & renovated Jubilee Pool - a 1930's lido. From Penzance it is possible to take boat trips around the coast & Mounts Bay.

Further West and there is St. Just, an old mining town, the surrounding area is steeped in the tin mining industry and the nearby Geevor mine offers underground tours.

Whatever, the season or weather, there is always something to do.
