This cosy 18th-century cottage is set in a cobbled lane in a conservation area. Simon and Penny are enthusiastic and hands-on hosts who live ten minutes away and will come to meet you.
There’s space to spread out inside, with two reception rooms and a suntrap of a courtyard with a table and chairs and a barbecue – it isn’t overlooked so you’ll feel nicely private. Penny leaves a bottle of wine, a cream tea and all the kitchen basics, and there are plenty of games and books for rainy days.
Stroll to the harbour to buy fresh fish for supper or to Jelberts for superb vanilla ice-cream. Good restaurants and a pub are within a five-minute walk, and you can walk to both Mousehole and Penzance along the coastal path or drive in five minutes.
