Janie’s Cottage

Mousehole, Cornwall

Eclectic interiors and vintage charm tucked into a quiet corner of Mousehole – beach, restaurants and coastal walks a stroll away


5 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 5


Set back from the harbour above a gallery, this cosy granite cottage has been renovated beautifully and sits alongside others with its back to the village and a patch of grass at its front.It’s a compact and sociable space – a sitting area one end with all the mod cons hidden away, and a convivial kitchen-diner where you can settle around the big wooden table to chat while others cook. A family or group of friends would be quite happy here, getting stuck in with keeping the wood-burner roaring or stocking up the cupboards with deli-bought treats.There’s no garden but the outside steps are a lovely spot for sitting with a morning coffee before a day of exploring. Stick to Mousehole for crabbing and cake shops, strike out along the South West Coastal Path for as long as your legs will carry you. The Minack Theatre’s a 25-minute drive, St Ives and Penzance a touch closer.

Janies Cottage was in a great location and beautiful throughout . It suited our family with young children really well and the well equipped kitchen was perfect for cooking up fresh food . Its so close to the beach we didn't miss a garden and the cottage was clean and comfy throughout . We shall be back !

The neighbourhood

Down a narrow lane and just a pebble's throw from the colourful boats bobbing in Mousehole’s charming harbour. Great restaurants are within a short stagger; 2 Fore Street is just around the corner and has views that sweep across the harbour, while Pam’s Pantry does proper Cornish cream teas. Aside from Mousehole’s safe, sandy beach, there are several swathes of sand to explore, plus cliff walking in either direction along the South West Coastal Path. Penzance is a ten-minute drive.

Local points of interest from Iain Andrews

  • Once a busy fishing port, Mousehole harbour is now a picturesque sandy beach, protected from the wind and waves by ancient granite harbour walls, with their very own historic Pilgrim's Steps. It is a haven for sunbathing, paddling, swimming and sailing.
  • Mousehole is dotted with places to eat and drink. The Old Coastguards Hotel with it's beautiful sea views. 2 Fore Street has a fine menu and sheltered garden. Hole Foods Deli for wine and coffee supplies. The Rock Pool sits above a natural swimming pool.
  • Janie's Cottage bedrooms all have lovely views of the village, with the main bedroom looking out across rooftops to St Clements Island and Mounts Bay. From here seals, dolphins and basking sharks have all been observed. It's also good for storm watching.
  • From Mousehole you can walk up Raginnis Hill and join the coast path to Lamorna, or take the coastal cycle path to Newlyn with it's independent art house cinema, freshly picked crab and two excellent fish restaurants - The Tolcarne Inn and Mackerel Sky.
  • All around the coast and within easy striking distance we are blessed with splendid surfing beaches. There's always a wave working somewhere. Or on the few days when it's not happeneing why not check out the numerous art galleries the village has to offer.
  • Mousehole has firework displays on November the 5th and New Years Eve. The Mousehole Harbour Lights are switched on in mid December and remain in place until the first week of January. Other popular village events are Tom Bawcocks Eve and Halloween.

Iain lives just down the road in Penzance, so he’s on hand should you need him but will leave you to your own devices. He worked in the film industry and sourced lots of the cottage’s furniture from his contacts.
