Overview

About the property

Balcony overlooking Mousehole Island, 1 bedroom, parking

Nestled on romantic Poldark's coastline, Island Watch is a small but beautiful, purpose-built apartment set on two levels with stunning views of Mount's Bay and St Clement's Island and a private balcony. The apartment makes a romantic, convenient and comfortable base from which to enjoy South West Cornwall: in December for the magic of a traditional old English Village Christmas, in the Spring for the walking and the flowers, in Summer for the beaches or, for one of our famous Indian Summers right into November. And every day when you rise or come home, you have the spectacular sea views to drink in from your lounge or the private balcony. It's a great spot for a honeymoon or special anniversary.

(NB if you would like to come to the same location with another couple or a couple more guests, please note that we also let out the main house Seal Point Villa: 1055858. It may be possible to offer a discount for parties of three or four.)

So, for Island Watch, made just for two, climb the simple wooden steps to your own entrance leading onto the first floor. Here you'll find the lounge with kitchenette and French doors to the sheltered balcony. Flanked by palm trees you can sip fresh coffee from the Nespresso machine and watch the wildlife in the sea and on the Island. The balcony is sheltered and quite a suntrap. The small wc and shower are also on this level.

Upstairs to the bedroom under the eaves. Here there's a very comfortable kingsized bed with good mattress (we renew regularly) and good quality cotton linen. There's also a small sofa, a selection of books (English, French and German) and storage space for your clothes. From the skylight you can see the Island again and if you leave it open, fall asleep listening to the sound of the water lapping on the shore some 50 metres away.

Parking right in front of the apartment gives you peace of mind in coming and going - so much of Mousehole has no reliable parking to offer. The flat is equipped with: TV, DVD player, Ipod dock and radio, Wifi, microwave/small oven, two plate induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment, Nespresso coffee machine, tea, coffee.

We live next door to the apartment and are happy to welcome you and leave you to yourselves or be on hand for any questions you may have or tips you need during your stay. If we are on holiday ourselves, my mother lives nearby and is on hand for any needs you have.

The house is neighboured by the gardens of the Old Coastguard Hotel, a boutique hotel with 13 rooms and a very fine restaurant. This is a quiet establishment and a lovely place to dine - but do book. If you google its website, you can also gain a greater sense of the position.

About Rob McDowell

We are a husband and wife team. We love sharing the best of the West with guests.

Why Rob McDowell chose Mousehole

We just love to watch the sea and its creatures feathered and finned. For this you need to be close and 50 metres is just about perfect! We also love to watch the sailing and fishing boats passing by and the Scillonian on its way to and from the Scilly Islands.

a compact, pretty and well appointed flat in a quiet yet convenient corner of Moushole.

  • 4 of 5

The owners are friendly and helpful. It felt like nothing was too much trouble. OS maps, bus timetables and other useful local information was to hand.

Mousehole is a great base as there are coast and cross country walks in all directions and has a regular bus service into both Newlyn and Penzance. The harbour is sheltered and therefore warm on sunny days all year round. There is an interesting cross section of eateries, galleries and shops to choose from. All in all a lovely unspoilt base for a stay in West Cornwall.

The flat is a delight, we enjoyed our stay and will go back but it has to be said the bedroom/loft arrangement is somewhat awkward. The stairs are quite steep and as in many properties in Moushole it is only possible to stand upright on one side of the room. This said, it did not curb our enjoyment.

Having a personal parking space outside the door is a huge bonus in a town where parking spaces are like gold dust.

Compact

  • 4 of 5

We had a most enjoyable stay. Each day we went out touring and did not stay in the apartment for long. The apartment is well appointed and clean. However it is a bit on the small side but OK for a short stay.

Relaxing week in Mousehole

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful relaxing week in Mousehole and loved your little apartment with the beautiful view, saw a few seals as well. Great spot for walking and exploring the coast. Would highly recommend walking to Newlyn for breakfast at Dukes Cafe and picking up some pasties and saffron buns from the bakery for the return journey. Had a fantastic dinner at 2 Fore Street and did some great shopping at Coast. Thank you for a great week.

A completely new luxury split level apartment with direct views of Mousehole Island (St Clements). Sip Nespresso on the balcony and watch seabirds, seals and sometimes dolphins from the living room and balcony! You can then walk 3-5 minutes to the fine restaurants, cafes and galleries of 500 year old Mousehole and the sandy beaches of the small harbour, where you can swim. By car or bus, you can discover the Minack theatre, many other beaches, St Ives, St Michael's Mount etc all 3-10 miles away. On foot from the apartment you have the famous cliff paths, all the way to Land's End and beyond. We live next door and are happy to leave you entirely alone or give you tips. For relaxation we can book a wonderful mobile masseuse at £40-50 for 60-90 mins

'Nespresso coffee on the balcony and this amazing seascape, changing every day - all that we needed for rest and recuperation!' Jo and Jez, May 2011

Shops, transport, distances: Mousehole is 3 miles from Penzance and 1.5 miles from the fishing village of Penzance. You can walk to Newlyn along the coastal path in 30 minutes and Penzance in an hour. Bikes can be hired in Pz.

In Newlyn you'll find a small supermarket, fresh fish shops - minutes from the trawlers, 2 bakers, a butchers, cafes etc.

In Penzance, 10 minutes by car from Mousehole you've all the shops, cinema etc you'd expect in a town of 20,000.

You don't necessarily need a car in Mousehole since the bus runs every 30 minutes to Penzance and from there you can connect with buses or trains to all the other places you might want to visit.

Mousehole has 4 restaurants, 3 cafes, 2 ice cream shops, a fish and chip shop, the pub The Ship, a grocery shop with fresh bread, numerous galleries and all the charm of the storybooks.
