Overview

About the property

Scadden House - a holiday cottage that sleeps 5 guests in 2 bedrooms

This lovely stone property, constructed out of Lamorna granite, is situated at the top of Boslandew Hill in Paul which is on the outskirts of the quaint fishing hamlet of Mousehole, famed for its Christmas lights and once described by Dylan Thomas as "the loveliest village in England!" The secluded, mature, rear garden of Scaddon House gives a clear view of the local church tower. The property boasts various character features including a large stone fireplace. Scadden House is positioned within 100 metres of the local church which was rebuilt after the original was burnt by a group of Spaniards who came ashore in 1595 and also the Kings Arms traditional public house.

Paul makes a perfect centre for exploring Penwith and guests find themselves within walking distance of Mousehole and a few miles away from Land's End, Penzance, St Ives, St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre and the gorgeous beaches of Porthcurno, and Whitesand Bay, Sennen. As such, this is a wonderfully central location to reach the surfing beaches that surround the Western tip of Cornwall. There are plenty of coastal walks and as Scadden House is dog-friendly the options to bring the extra family member on holiday are really tempting. Mousehole has a number of excellent gift shops, galleries and restaurants including the recommended 2 Fore Street Restaurant serving seafood and local produce.

Accommodation

Ground floor: Enters into the dining room that has seating for 6 and a large character fireplace, one door leads into a galley kitchen which also has an exterior door into the enclosed rear garden, a second door leads into the lounge which has windows at one end and double French doors at the other again leading into the rear garden. Stairs from the dining room lead up to the first floor.

Great location & lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely cottage, great location to travel south Cornwall. Being dog friendly was spot on although having a grass garden that the time of year we stayed isn't great as had to clean dogs paws constantly to avoid getting carpets dirty.

Would suggest hard floors

other than that, amazing & would recommend to everyone!!!

Fabulous break

  • 5 of 5

I loved the location but you need a car as we had as it is not close to shops. Not that you need them just food shops required!

Quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this cottage is fantastic as it is just up the hill from Mousehole and within easy distance to Porthcurno/Minack Theatre. The cottage itself is a comfortable size for 5 people although the kitchen is quite small but very well equipped. The inside could do with being updated, a lot of very old furniture and decor. Could be kept with the in keeping of a traditional cottage but with a few more updated features. The main niggle we had on arrival was the strong smell of dog and quite a lot of dog hair on the sitting room carpet. The hoover definitely needs a deodoriser for a property that accepts dogs. Overall the cottage was clean and had lovely comfortable beds and we did enjoy our stay, even the church bells! Very peaceful location and a good base for exploring the great part of Cornwall.

Scadden house Paul

  • 5 of 5

We rented Scadden house in mid June for one week.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon,and the cottage was better than advertised,a gorgeous cottage in a beautiful villlage.Clean well taken care of and a great location to explore south and central cornwall.

The village pub is 1 minute round the corner,and does great food,and has st austell beers.

Mousehole is a 10 minute walk down the hill [30 mins back up]with some great shops,pubs and restaurants.

We would definitely stay at this cottage again.

Many thanks to Cornwall cottages for keeping everything simple and smooth.

Andrew.

Not good

  • 2 of 5

Only staying for 4 nights. Arrived to a cold, dirty and smelly property with some sort of animal droppings on the kitchen floor. It had not been serviced. Took 2 hours to get a reply from anyone. We were on the point of booking a hotel. Cleaner arrived at 6:30. We felt obliged to go out and leave her to it. She'd gone by the time we got back having made all 5 beds, so cleaning must have been limited, carpets still in need of a hoover. Heating not on, so still cold and smelly. We had to be there for a couple of nights as work was involved, but left early as soon as that was done. No desire to stay for the extra couple of nights holiday

Location

Paul makes a perfect centre for exploring Penwith and guests find themselves within walking distance of Mousehole and a few miles away from Land's End, Penzance, St Ives, St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre and the gorgeous beaches of Porthcurno, and Whitesand Bay, Sennen. As such this is a wonderfully central location to reach the surfing beaches that surround the Western tip of Cornwall.

Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End, that has retained much of its old world charm. The narrow streets are filled with galleries, small shops and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, cluster together around the inner edge of the harbour, these are protected from the force of the sea by two robust breakwaters. Car parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village. The tiny village was overcome by the loss of the Penlee lifeboat, the Solomon Brown, just before Christmas 1981. Most of the crew was from Mousehole. On the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy, the Christmas Lights are turned off for one hour as a mark of respect for the crew who died whilst trying to rescue those on the Union Star off Lamorna.

The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. You can even take a helicopter ride from Penzance to view the lights from the sky! Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village's unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.
