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.
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. Families will be quite happy here: you’ll find basics for cooking and some treats waiting for you, and books and toys for children.
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.
