The Experience

This immaculate Mousehole bolthole – white frontage, sash windows – is magically more than it seems. Inside are numerous surprises. For one, a half-glass floor in the bedroom, for another, a harbour view from the king-size bed – imagine waking to the sunrise. Linked by a steep narrow stair, this two-storey house is cosy and compact, yet somehow manages to feel airy, roomy and light. Off the entrance landing, steps drop to the living-kitchen area below, and a stair rises to the bedroom above. Textures are natural, colours are soothing, limestone floors sleek, planked walls rustic. We loved the stacked logs by the wood-burner (blissful in winter), the fishing net strung between the rafters, the shipping rope banister. The decor is robust, original, urbane, yet is in complete harmony with the nautical surroundings. From the wet room’s pebble floor to the chunky wood window-seat to the simple blue and white crockery, the detailing is a delight. Mousehole is busy in summer, you can hear the cars drive past, and the odd bus – but it’s atmospherically over-ridden by those vocal Cornish gulls!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sand & Stone

  • Even its name is evocative. Located in West Cornwall, Mousehole oozes seaside charm and, just a few miles from Penzance, this picture-perfect harbour has become synonymous with Cornish relaxation.
  • Happily, the cottage is located right on the harbour, which means every attraction in the village is within walking distance of your front door.
