About The Old Exchange

Our family and friends have always loved coming to Mousehole and enjoy the beauty and charm of the village and Harbour. We enjoy walking and painting on the many lovely beaches nearby. It is a very friendly village with shops, art galleries, a pub, post office and several restaurants serving great food.

The Old Exchange purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Old Exchange chose Mousehole

Mousehole is a great place to de-stress and relax, walking round the pretty streets and enjoying the friendly atmosphere. We love the Sea Salts and Sail Festival held every two years and the Mousehole Lights at Christmas.

When you stay at The Old Exchange there is no worry about parking, we

have our own private space. The cottage is comfortable, modern and

is very well-equipped in order for you to enjoy your holiday.

Large garden with two patio areas with table and chairs to relax in.

What makes this cottage unique

We can park in front of the property and unpack after a long journey (parking is rare in Mousehole). Sitting in the garden behind the house in the evening, watching the sun go down.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at the Old Exchange. It was very spacious for our family of four (more spacious than what we thought from the pictures)and the utility room and space to put our coat and wellies were very useful. The owners Anne and Richard were very thoughtful all throughout and left us a very nice hamper with Easter eggs and some baby items (we have two young children). The cottage and kitchen in particular were very well equipped. Mousehole is a very picturesque and authentic village and we have enjoyed spending some time there as well as visiting the region. (We had a great day in St Michael s mount for exemple). We hope to be able to go back again one day and would highly recommend a stay at the Old Exchange.

Perfect Stay in Mousehole

The Old Exchange cottage makes a wonderful comfortable base for exploring this part of Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and wished we could have stayed longer. The beds are comfortable and most everything you could need is provided. The parking space is a real plus!
