Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom family friendly house with stunning sea views

Trevilley is a light and airy family house enjoying spectacular panoramic sea views over Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount. Situated in the picturesque village of Mousehole, the house is a two minute stroll from the harbour with its two sandy beaches, shallow waters and quaint fishing and sailing boats. Trevilley, which sleeps 6 people (or 8 from May to October), is ideal as a romantic getaway, for walkers (the South Coast path goes straight past the front door), surfers, those who just want to wind down (it's impossible not to relax here) and it's perfect for families - the house is fully equipped will all the bits needed for young children (2 travel cots, toddler pillows, duvets and bedding (infant sleeping bags are not provided), 2 travel high chairs, kids’ cutlery and crockery, stick blender, large washer/dryer etc). Even on a dull day, the house is filled with light due to its extraordinary east facing position, combined with large windows that make the most of the views.

In the winter months, it's the perfect place to put on your walking boots and discover Cornish land and seascapes (the walk from the house along the coast to Lamorna is stunning), soothe those aching limbs in the Jacuzzi bath and then get cosy with a glass of something next to the roaring open fire. The view remains beautiful whatever the weather and you can feel yourself unwind just watching the sea roll in.

From May to October a charming summerhouse, sleeping an extra 2 people, is also available at £50 per night in addition to the rental of the main house.

The details...

A large entrance porch provides ample space to store beach bags, wellies and coats. This leads to a spacious well equipped kitchen crafted by a local artisan from reclaimed wood. It leads into a utility room which houses the boiler in a big airing cupboard as well as a large washer/dryer, clothes horse and iron.

From here another, door leads into the wet room (an ideal place to have a shower after a day on the beach or to hang your wetsuit) and a downstairs toilet.

The kitchen also leads directly into the dining room, a light filled space with beautiful local art work and stunning views. It comfortably seats eight in colourful Phillippe Starck Ghost chairs set around an old sea captain's wooden table. If you are lucky enough to be seated at the head of the table, you will have direct views onto St Clement Island.

In front of the dining room and the adjacent sitting room lies a spectacular and spacious sea viewing room with extraordinary panoramic views of the Lizard, St. Michael's Mount, the village, the harbour and St.Clements Island. This is the ideal place to relax with a coffee, a good book or simply be mesmerised by the ever changing colours of the sea and sky.

A south facing door leads onto a covered decking area with a big glass table and chairs, a perfect place to have breakfast on a sunny morning and perhaps spot some seals, basking-sharks or dolphins.

Through another set of double doors from the conservatory you enter the cosy sitting room with its big open fire place, comfy leather sofa and chairs and its quirky furniture made from our decommissioned wooden fishing boat.

An open staircase leads from here to the first floor. The sea-facing master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with two basins and a whirlpool bath and a toilet. The comfortable kingsize double bed promises a restful night with its crisp linen and luxurious bedding. There are two bedside tables with drawers and a small wardrobe.

The other sea-facing room has shaker style twin beds, a large basin, one bedside table with drawers and a chest of drawers. From these rooms the view of the sunrise over the Lizard and the sound of the sea breaking over St. Clements Island remind you on waking that you are in beautiful Cornwall.

The third bedroom houses adult-size bunk beds a bedside table with drawers and storage under the bunks. There are two travel cots available to use along with sheets (infant pillows/duvets/sleeping bags are not provided). All bedrooms have adequate space for a travel cot. The master bedroom can accommodate two travel cots (if, like us, you are lucky enough to have twins!).

Between the twin and bunk room there is another bathroom with a bath and stand up shower and toilet.

The Summer House

Also enjoying splendid views, the summer house is ideal for older children or maybe grandparents who like to enjoy a little independence.

It consists of a large living space, sofa, table and chairs, a kitchenette made out of reclaimed wood from fishing vessels, a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. A separate bedroom contains a shaker double bed and small wardrobe with an en suite shower room, toilet and basin. The summer house is an additional £50 per night in addition to the rental of the main house.

Garden

Trevilley is surrounded by a large garden consisting of several sheltered sitting areas, all enjoying sublime views. There are many colourful shrubs and bushes with something in bloom throughout the year.

There is a built-in granite BBQ, a shed where beach items can be stored and for the literary inclined lines of poetry carved into the slate paving stones.

Parking

Mousehole is built around its beautiful harbour and has narrow windy streets. Free parking is possible on Raginnis Hill. Alternatively, there is Mousehole harbour parking on the south and the north quays.

About Becca

Hi there! My parents, Roger and Silvia have had the pleasure of letting out Trevilley for almost 15 years. We love the peace and tranquility and the fabulous views - our repeat visitors think so too! It is also a very special place for our 3 children who visit regularly and who have helped us make sure that it is well equipped for young families (see photo of them all devouring their daily chocolate ice-cream from Jessie's Dairy). It is certainly the place for magical childhood holiday memories and we hope that you love it as much as we do.

Becca purchased this house in 1999

Trevilley - Magnificent views and more views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this lovely home was over all too soon. We were a party of three Australian tourists and stayed four nights. We enjoyed this comfortable home and all the location had to offer. The little village of Mousehole is just a stroll down the hill to enjoy a coffee or lunch and when back home all there was to do was sit in the conservatory and read or enjoy the views. Two of the three bedrooms also had 180 degree views of the bay and across to St Michael's Mount. Although there is no onsite parking, a public carpark is just down the hill once you have unloaded your suitcases. We visited Land's End and St Michael's Mount, as well as the National Trust home - Godolphin, St Ives, Penzance, where we purchased superb fish for dinner, and Newlyn. The country drives are just beautiful. We highly recommend this property

Christmas at Trevilley

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic Christmas at Trevilley in Mousehole.

We had an absolutely brilliant Christmas stay with our 3 children at this wonderful house.

First thing in the morning you watch the sunrise over the Lizard with a warm cup of tea in bed before strolling down to the harbour newsagent to get your daily newspaper. The Children love exploring the small village looking for the famous 'Mowzer' the Cat followed by lunch in a small beach hut perched up high at the Rock Pool Café. Otherwise there is a nice walk to Lamorna along the cliffs, where you are rewarded with some excellent cake.

At Christmas Mousehole is enchanting, the harbour is lit up every night with a different array of imaginative Christmas lights. One of the highlights we discovered of the festive period here is Tom Bawcock's night on the 23rd where an absolute must is to go and sample the Star-Gazey pie from the The Ship Inn and hear tales of Tom and Mowzer's heroic battle with the Storm cat to bring back some fish to the starving villagers !

And after all the excitement you retire to Trevilley to a warm fire and a glass of something nice.

What a fab week, great memories for all the family, Thankyou Trevilley

Haus mit Aussicht aufs Meer

  • 5 of 5

Kaum in Trevilley angelangt, vergisst man den Alltag. Im Wintergarten kann man die Seele baumeln lassen, den Fischerbooten nachschauen, die Möwen auf ihren Flügen folgen oder morgens den Sonnenaufgang geniessen.

Küche , Bäder sind vollständig ausgestattet und die Zimmer sind hell und gemütlich. Im Wohnzimmer fehlen das Cheminée, Fernseher und die Musikanlage nicht. Ein Ort um den Tag mit einem Whisky ausklingen zu lassen.

In Mousehole findet man gute Restaurants und kleine interessante Galerien. Wer gerne wandert, findet vor der Haustüre gut beschilderte Wanderwege.

Danke Roger und Silvia für eure Gastfreundschaft, wir werden sicher wieder kommen

Prepare to breathe the sea air and unwind

  • 5 of 5

West Cornwall has so many attractions it is hard to list them all - surfing in Sennen or St. Ives, dolphin spotting at Cape Cornwall, discovering hidden coves along the coastal path, kayaking with seals, mackerel fishing, St. Michael's Mount, great restaurants, art galleries, cream teas and atmospheric pubs, not to mention 'Sound' nightclub in Penzance. Actually probably best not to mention 'Sound' nightclub. One thing that makes every day a guaranteed success is returning to the incredible house for a barbecue overlooking St. Michael's Mount, or if the weather's bad, a log fire and a cream tea in the cosy living room. It's the perfect place to unwind from work or put the troubles of the world behind you.

A truly magical house that will captivate you!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first time staying at Trevilley and it was such a delight to return. The house is truly magical with exceptional views of the island - it is timeless. We were there this time with our two young children who decided we should up sticks and move to Mousehole! The house is more than well equipped for children. Mousehole in itself is beautiful and brilliant for children. Just a 5 minutes stroll to the quay where the kids could stay all day long in between choosing an ice cream and pasty from the various great eateries. If you want to venture out there are many many other great local beaches such as Sennen and St. Ives. The house captured me from the first stay there many years ago and has now captured my children's hearts and is therefore set to be a firm favourite for holidaying in the UK.

Amazing seaside house - the perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. During the day it's a wonderful, light, bright, seaside home. In the evenings - with a huge wood dining table, leather sofas, and stunning fireplace - it's the perfect place to get cosy and comfortable. The views are unbeatable. The furnishings and design are gorgeous, and it's always clean, tidy, and the kitchen is well-equipped. We've stayed here many times now, and the summer holidays don't feel right without a trip to Trevilley! The kids adore it just as much as we do. There's so much to do - from visiting St Michael's Mount, Sennen, Porthcurno, watching a play at the Minack, hiking along the South Coast Path. Or just hanging out in the picture-postcard village of Mousehole, with its perfect child-friendly beaches, lovely pub, and yummy restaurants. Couldn't be better!

There are many beautiful beaches in the vicinity. Porthcurno is the location of the open air theatre "the Minack" which looks out over the bay and is a must see during the summer months (there are also matinee children's performances). Sennen is ideal for children with it's shallow, crystal clear waters. The surf at Sennen is pretty good too. Marazion is worth a visit - at low tide the causeway opens and St Michael's Mount becomes accessible by foot. If the tides are not in your favour, regular boat crossings will take you to the Mount (a National Trust property). A good children's playground and plenty of parking, make this an ideal day out for families. Kynance Cove is one of the most interesting and visually beautiful beaches in Cornwall. It's a child's paradise at low tide with caves, rock pools and plenty of sand for digging in but note that the beach is only accessible by foot from the car park and takes about 10 minutes to reach the beach.

There are also plenty of stunning scenic walks which are easily accessible from Mousehole (the South Coast path goes straight past the front door). We have provided Ordnance Survey maps and walking books to help you on your way.
