A delightful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be of very high standard, clean, comfortable, a home from home experience. In a great location with excellent views of the sea. It was great to be able to stroll down to the harbour, knowing we were just a short distance away from the cottage. Our baby daughter settled in well and there was plenty of room for her and all the items one takes when holidaying with a child. We loved the special touches which included a delightful hamper and flowers. We took advantage of the delicious cooked meals prepared by Phay which truly took the stress out of having to cook when we arrived. We would highly reccommend this cottage.

Delightful Cottage in a Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

Mousehole Cottage is in a beautiful spot with lovely sea views. The booking process and following interactions with Phay were really straight forward and nothing is too much trouble. The Welcome Hamper on arrival was a really lovely surprise with even a treat for our Cavapoo! The cottage is so bright and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. It is such a bonus to have an allocated parking space - a real premium in Mousehole! It is perfectly situated along a small pathway resulting in very little pedestrian passers by - so very private and very peaceful. Would highly recommend a meal in the Old Coastguard (situated next door) and we enjoyed a very nice Sunday Lunch at The Kings Arms in Paul. The Red Lion in Newlyn and The Turks Head in Penzance also offer some delicious fresh fish dishes on their "specials board." For dog owners - it is well worth visiting Long Rock Beach as this is a dog friendly beach all year and the Mexico Inn at Long Rock serves some amazing food. We would highly recommend a stay at Mousehole Cottage it just has everything to offer for a perfect Mousehole stay. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Phay.

Great cottage perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this cottage, there was a lovely welcome basket when we arrived. The cottage really is a home from home, clean well equipped, sea views from nearly all the windows, parking spot real bonus and only few minutes walk to the harbour and great pub and cafe even closer. Phay arranged for local stable to contact me about horse riding on the beach was a dream come true, fantastic holiday we will definitely return.

Lovely well equipped dog loving cottage, great location with the bonus of private parking which is great in Mousehole. The welcome pack was a nice touch and extremely useful when you end up arriving at 10pm! Even a treat provided for our Cockapoo! Phay and Jonathan were very helpful and we therefore would definitely recommend this property.

A family favourite

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from our fourth (we think) visit to Mousehole Cottage. Perfect location, handy for everything the village has to offer - coast path, beach, harbour, several eateries plus the lovely Ship Inn. Mousehole Cottage is a welcoming, warm, clean and comfortable base - it suits us and our boys down to the ground, and I know we'll be back! The parking space is also extremely handy.

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, well decorated, clean, light and great situation. An oasis in a busy tourist honey pot. Great access to Mousehole of course but also convenient for town (Newlyn & Penzance) and country Coast Path.

About Phay MacDowel

Mousehole Cottage was built by husband and wife team - Stylish Cornish Cottages. The cottage was built in 2008 and is finished to a high standard and comfortably appointed throughout. Stylish Cornish Cottages lovingly manage a small number of properties in West Cornwall, we own Mousehole Cottage so know the property inside out if you have any questions. We live in the area so can give you lots of locals advice and book any trips or experiences you might wish to participate in whilst on holiday in this wonderful part of Cornwall. Nothing is ever too much trouble when it comes to your holiday!

Why Phay MacDowel chose Mousehole

Built to a high standard it benefits from wonderful sea views, private parking which is rare in Mousehole and a lovely private garden. The cottage is located on the edge of the historic harbour, a stones throw from the harbour itself with its winding narrow lanes, net lofts, galleries and cafes. The location is beneficial as driving into Mousehole can be tricky in the summer, you have the benefit of parking at the cottage pottering around the village, but if you wish to explore further afield you can get out of Mousehole quickly and easily in your car. A car is not essential, Penzance mainline station is 3 miles away and buses run regularly from Penzance to Mousehole.

What makes this cottage unique

Sea Views, private garden and parking and just a stones throw from the picturesque harbour of Mousehole

Guestbook comments from the manager

Porthcurno was brilliant, there was a nice cove and an interesting museum and a great theatre. We had lots of fun with our dinghy on local rocky beaches. Flambards was surprisingly good for the children. We had a lovely week, really enjoyed being in Mousehole, had a great meal at the Old Coastguard Hotel. Thank you
