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.

First floor: Landing at the top of the stairs with doors leading to; Master bedroom with 5' double bed and shower cubicle in one corner, main shower room with large power shower, second large bedroom with a 5' double bed and one 3' single bed.

Exterior: There is limited off-road parking for one small car at the front with small courtyard garden. Enclosed, mature rear garden with views of the local church tower.

To see the lights of Mousehole

  • 4 of 5

We had a pleasant stay at Scadden House, which was warm and cosy and ideal to enable us to walk down to see the lights by Mousehole harbour. The kitchen was well equipped,although narrow , but we didn't do much cooking as only on a short break. Local pub served good food. Difficult to park car up the drive as quite narrow but parked outside on the road so that was fine.

a very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped kitchen. Great location near Mousehole. Very comfortable bed. The church bells ring all through the night but after the first night it didn't wake us up!

A lovely enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

Scaddon House provided us with an excellent base to explore the delights of Mousehole. It is ideally located for exploring the South of Cornwall and we made a few trips across to Sennon to surf as it was so accessible. Mousehole is a delightful little village with lots to offer, we especially enjoyed the crab feast night at Jessie's Dairy and the fabulous 2 Fore Street restaurant where we enjoyed brunch and evening meals. Scaddon is close to the coastal path and we enjoyed walking the dog over to Lamorna Cove, we also had a good jog out to Penzance and back where you can enjoy the beautiful alfresco pool. As mentioned in previous reviews Scaddon is at the top of a steep hill, however this didn't both us as its well lit at night, we also took a taxi back the odd time as it was only £4 from Mousehole village centre. A special mention must to go the owner of the property who couldn't have been more helpful on our stay at the cottage.

Comfortable & spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

Scaddon House is lovely and well equipped, the beds were really comfortable and there was plenty of space for us all apart from the galley style kitchen and this is my only gripe regarding the inside of the property. The location of the cupboards meant a narrow kitchen became even narrower with a dead end so sometimes there was grid lock - too many people and open cupboard doors etc! A problem for my very tall family was the end of the stair post poking through the ceiling (part of the kitchen is under the stairs if you follow me) and they brained themselves on it regularly - perhaps it could be cut off?! There is an art to getting in & out of the driveway if you have a big car - it is extremely narrow and despite our best efforts we still managed to trash one of the door mirrors which is an expensive mistake to make. Anyway, this is not meant to be an exhaustive list of complaints as we had a really fabulous, relaxing time here and it's in a great location for exploring this gorgeous part of Cornwall.

Really nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week in cottage, really enjoyed ourselves. It's a great base location, 10 mins walk to the harbour, next road to the Kings Arms. Just what we needed, off street car parking which is a bonus although care is needed.

I'd highly recommend this cottage which would be ideal for upto 5 (plus a cot).

Also recommend a trip up to the local football team Mousehole AFC which is 5-10 mins walk away as they make you feel really welcome and the football is a decent standard.

Sunny week at Scadden House

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was exactly as described. Quiet location, well equipped, spacious and very clean. It's a roomy two bedroom cottage but one of the bedrooms has a double and a single bed - so fine if you have 3 kids. The kitchen is a galley style - not roomy if there are more than two of you in there - but not an issue if you're going to eat out most of the time. Garden is also small if you've got young kids or dogs and need some space for them to exercise.

Paul is about a half a mile's walk from Mousehole (charming harbour village) and well positioned for exploring Lands End, St Michael's Mount and St Ives.

Have to also say that the uncharacteristically superb weather made our stay really perfect!

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.
