The Experience

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.

Janie’s Cottage is a beautiful place to stay right in the heart of Mousehole. It is only a minute or so to the harbour and nestled right in a little secluded courtyard. The owners were really wonderful and helped make our stay comfortable with extra advice about what to do with a toddler in Cornwall during the bigger storm of the year! We loved the retro furnishings and the care and attention paid to the house- especially the books on local foraging. We’ll definitely be back.

Janie's cottage is a beautiful example of a traditional granite fisherman's cottage. Tucked away in the heart of Mousehole it is a hidden gem with really eclectic and stylish decor. Light, airy but cosy, it is the perfect place to spend a holiday with family.

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 the Rockpool cafe does proper Cornish cream teas and has sea views to St Clement's Isle. Aside from Mousehole’s safe, sandy beach, there are several swathes of sand to explore, plus cliff walking.
