Your own mini apartment in the heart of lively Mousehole – cafes on the doorstep. Take both rooms if you come with friends or family

Hidden down the side of Tracey’s house are two little flats each with their own door. One has stairs to an airy bedroom and a glimpse of the sea. Find a calm, sleek feel with modern white furniture, cool linen, snug wool blankets; zinc coat hooks, bright cushions, clever lighting add interest. Tracey leaves you a niftily upcycled 7UP box stuffed with homemade granola, croissants, pain au chocolat, homemade compote and yogurt, fruit, organic oatmeal porridge, agave syrup… Eat outside on the shared suntrap terrace – or in bed if you fancy. Stroll along the harbour, book a boat trip; St Ives and atmospheric Minack Theatre are nearby.

  • Mousehole is one of the most captivating villages in Cornwall, Dylan Thomas once called it the prettiest village in England. At its centre lies the harbour and beach, overlooked by a collection of houses and narrow streets.
  • Restaurants, cafes, deli, galleries, shops and cosy village pub, are all just a few metres from The Old Pilchard Works. What better way than to spend your days getting lost among the narrow streets, enjoying stunning sea views or perhaps even a boat trip
  • From Mousehole explore the dramatic south west coast path and search out the stunning beaches such as Porthcurno and Sennen.
  • Go and visit or watch a performance at the unique Minnack Theatre with the Atlantic ocean as a back drop, just 20 minutes drive away.
  • Explore iron age settlements at Chysauster and Carn Euny or ancient standing stones such as the Merry Maidens.
  • Just a few miles across the bay is St Michaels Mount, a medieval hilltop castle surrounded by subtropical gardens and a quaint harbour village. This can be reached on foot across the causeway at low tide or by ferry at high tide.
