Property Description

Light and spacious house in beautiful Mousehole, close to harbour and beach. Balcony with panoramic sea views.

Caroline Cottage is a mix of the old and the new. Our traditional granite-fronted house was converted in the 1980’s to provide unusually light and spacious “upside-down” accommodation. We have been letting since 2001, and our aim is to give you a true “home from home” – a lovely and relaxing space where you have plenty of room and everything you need for your seaside holiday. Our back door is some 50 metres from the tidal harbour where you can swim, paddle, beach-comb. Mousehole must be one of the loveliest of the old Cornish fishing villages – heaven for children and adults alike. Full of winding paths and picturesque cottages, it is largely a conservation area, with the harbour and tides at its heart. Many of our visitors hardly leave the village but just relax and soak up the atmosphere. Cafes, restaurants, pub, small shop, galleries, gift shops. A regular minibus runs to Penzance for shopping, or connections to rail and buses – so going without a car is perfectly feasible. Many of West Cornwall’s loveliest spots are in easy reach – Marazion and St Michael’s Mount, St Ives, Lamorna Cove and the coastpath walk, Minack Theatre, Land’s End and Poldark country.

Our open-plan 18′ living room is upstairs – French doors to the balcony with wonderful views over the harbour and to Mounts Bay, St Michael’s Mount, and the Lizard. We provide loads of books, games, puzzles and dvds for all ages, also some wooden toys for the young ones. Our adjoining kitchen (c. 20′) has an exposed granite wall and a beautiful old cast-iron range. Plenty of crockery and cooking equipment, double oven, hob, micro, fridge, dishwasher. The table seats 8 people easily, and we also have a desk area and bookcase with local information and maps. Our 3 bedrooms are downstairs – double + basin, twin + basin, bunk room – sleeping 6 people. Downstairs bathroom has bath with electric shower over, washing machine, and rubber duckies!!

Prices are inclusive of electricity (heating by storage heaters and supplementary heaters if required). We supply duvets, pillows, bathmat, oven gloves, tea-towel. Our lovely housekeeper offers an optional bed-linen service – £10 per single, £15 per double. We are pet-friendly, but ask owners to keep pets off the furniture/beds, to bring their own pet bed, and to leave £5 for our housekeeper for extra cleaning. Doge enjoy sitting on the balcony – take a mat for them so their paws are comfortable on the balcony slats :-). Payment is by cheque or direct, and we are happy to accept instalments if that helps to spread the load.

Our adjoining Dungeon annexe sleeps 2 – double futon, fitted kitchen area, shower/loo. It can be rented as an extra alongside the house, allowing for up to 8 people total. Please see pricing page for details.

We have never used an agency, preferring to offer a personal service and flexibility. We’re very visitor-friendly, so please do ask any questions. We want our visitors to be well-informed and confident – you work hard for your holiday and we want you to enjoy it! Many of our visitors come back year after year, and we like getting to know them. Summer is of course the time when people head to the Cornish sunshine, but how about an Autumn break where you can watch the waves crashing over the harbour walls, or a magical Christmas/New Year with the spectacular harbour lights. On 23 December Mousehole celebrates its own legend on Tom Bawcock’s Night. See Antonia Barber’s book “The Mousehole Cat” and the film version
