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.
