Perfect for a couple, or little families, the Tiny House is to be found nestling at the very heart of this pretty and historic fishing village, up a quiet Cornish lane. From it’s elevated position, the views over Mounts Bay are stunning – wake from a relaxing sleep, to the call of the gulls, and the days adventures!
This 200 year old former fish cellar, and fisherman’s home, has been lovingly adapted to create a three storey Tiny Home.
The porch opens into a gorgeous, well equipped and newly fitted kitchen/dining room, with underfloor heating - perfect for those who love to cook and/or in which to enjoy a leisurely breakfast before the days excursions begin! The cosy bathroom is also situated on the ground floor, and has a shower, pedestal basin and wc.
Should you want to leave the kitchen area (!) a ‘cottage’ stairwell takes you to the first floor, to the simple but stylish lounge space with its comfy snuggler sofas, luxurious throws, gentle lighting, and tiny wood burning stove (for our winter guests). Here, you can read the paper, enjoy a book and a glass (or 2!) of wine, and catch a favourite TV show or film. The (originally) front door takes you to a tiny, pretty balcony area which looks onto our beach hut/patio space – a private suntrap where you can enjoy your meals alfresco, or plan your next adventure along Poldark’s coastline!
From the lounge space, a further ‘cottage’ stairwell (do mind your head!) leads the way to a ‘snug’ with a comfy ‘trundle’ seat/bed – this is another peaceful, tiny space in which to relax, unwind and watch the sea, beyond the sloping slate rooftops .
Finally, we hope that you’ll love the ‘wow’ factor of the room next door - the Master bedroom where a chic, bespoke, double bed awaits you, and a stunning 180 degree view of magical Mounts bay!
The Tiny House is a self-contained cottage with its own front door and is arranged over 3 floors; please be aware that the bathroom (including wc) is situated on the ground floor. Outside, there is a pretty, secluded and well-planted patio seating area (up 3 granite steps) opposite the house. The Tiny House is fully dedicated to guests, giving a rare sense of intimacy.
Access to the Tiny House is 20 metres up a little Cornish lane (uphill to bed, downhill of a morning to the harbour). Parking can be found in one of Mousehole's public carparks or on the road entering the village. Sadly, the Tiny House is not suitable for wheelchair users. We operate a key safe - details will be supplied at the point of booking confirmation.
Detailed tips and information about the area are provided in the Tiny House and we are very happy to give you more pointers if you need them, via email prior to your arrival. Mousehole's eateries are very popular so do make sure you book in advance. Most of our guests are looking for a cosy, private nook all of their own in which to relax, and we respect that you will want own time and space!
The Tiny House is well appointed and lovingly thought out but it is what says, compact, bijou, klein aber fein! Guests tell us they have all they need and that Tiny House offers a delightful way to enjoy Mousehole, it’s fine food, a trip to the Minack theatre, a fishing sortie or just a few more Cornish cream teas!
Walkers love Mousehole and it is well connected by buses, allowing you to be dropped several hours' walk away and hike home over the stunning coastal footpaths. There is a half hourly bus service into Penzance (to the bus and train station) and back (running until midnight). From Penzance you have access to numerous other local beauty spots and beaches via bus/train and there are great rover tickets to be had giving you 'hop on hop off' flexibility all around the peninsular. There is also a cycle path between Mousehole and Marazion, local cycle hire, and coastal walks are well signposted too. Parking in Mousehole itself costs £ 3.00 for 24 hours. We can put walkers in touch with a local company - Luggage Transfers - who will collect and deliver bags, so that you can enjoy the views and know that your possessions will be here waiting for you at the end of the day! They operate a great service all around the South West!
Mousehole is very well set up to welcome visitors from around the world, all year round. Much of the village - including our street - is grade II listed, and tells its own romantic tales of its history and characters, past (and present!). It is a welcoming, and at times bustling place which has its own distinctive vibe, but which also offers that golden opportunity to sit and gaze at the seascape, and just be....
