Guestbook comments from the owner

Having had a rocky start with car breaking down 40 miles into our journey, getting towed home & restarting 7 hrs. later in a hired car, it was so welcoming to eventually arrive at this fantastic cottage and be greeted with home made scones. Especially as it was late and no food to be had! Pubs etc. close early beware! We had a lovely week visiting the many resorts of Cornwall, thanks to Melanie & Phillip. The cottage is everything we wanted and we couldn't ask for more. (Except mobile phone reception at Mousehole) Ha Ha.

We would certainly recommend "Cobbler's Cottage" and hope to revisit again. The Kings Arms pub is also a good & well priced meal out in the evening.

Thanks, Melanie & Phillip for a lovely holiday.

Mousehole as a village was pefect for me and my three half-adult children. We did really appreciate the friendly and calm atmosphere, the harbour, the village itself and the surroundings, and of course Cobblers's cottage - very comfortable, kitchen very well equipped for self catering, washing machine etc and also beautiful, nice and pretty in all ways, and located only two miutes from the sea! We had a great holiday: relaxing, fun and interesting. Many thanks to excellent hostess Melanie!

Clean, fresh, tastefully decorated, warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a number of holidays in Mousehole and Cobblers Cottage is one of our favourite places to stay. The location so close to the harbour is ideal for us. The cottage itself is always clean, fresh and welcoming with the added bonus of fresh flowers, wine and scones and cream to greet us. Another big advantage in Mousehole is the fact that it comes with a garage right next to it.

It is well equipped with everything you need to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The owners, Melanie and Philip are just next door and always give us a warm welcome and it is good to know they are on hand should there be any problems. I am pleased to say we have not encountered any so far though.

Overall a lovely cottage which makes the stay in our favourite place so much more enjoyable.

Pretty cottage in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

It was bigger than I expected a cottage in mousehole to be. So great value for money. Although we were only a couple with a baby and a dog, we would go back again when we have a larger family.

Great size kitchen with lots of utensils and pans. As it was out of season some of the cafés and restaurants were closed, so having a well stocked kitchen came in very handy.

There were lovely touches of scones, wine and flowers and treats for our dog on arrival. Having a long journey from Reading these were very much (and quickly) appreciated.

The comfy bed and woodburner made our vey wet and windy stay in Cornwall pleasent and cosy.

Although a tight fit, having the garage was a big bonus as we would not have been able to park near the cottage otherwise.

We would highly recommend to anyone to stay here.

Cute, cosey and comfy cottage with the brilliant advantage of a garage for our car.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly situated and well appointed cottage. Welcome cream tea, flowers, Christmas tree and wreath and a bottle of bubbly were very much appreciated after our long drive. To be able to garage the car next to the the cottage was a huge advantage given the parking situation in Mousehole. We soon got to grips with the wood burning stove which made for a very cosey feel over Christmas. The cottage had just the right amount of art work and brick a brac to make it feel like home from home. The cottage was clean and well maintained.

We very much enjoyed breakfast at The 'hole food cafe on the harbour and wonderful crab sandwich at The Rock Pool cafe at the bottom of the large main car park.

Very clean and comfortable cottage in fabulous location. Dogs v welcome and ideal with own parking space - a rarity in Mousehole. We would love to come back and will be recommending Cobblers Cottage to the rest of our family and friends.

Mousehole is a beautiful unspoilt village of quaint cottages and narrow streets clustered around the old harbour. The village has much natural beauty; stunning coastal walks, pebble beaches with rock pools and a sandy harbour which still has a few working fishing boats. The renowned 2 Fore Street restaurant and the Ship Inn, the village store/post office are all just 200 metres from Cobbler’s. Many interesting galleries with live-in artists and the Old Coastguard Hotel are all close by.

The village is beautiful at any time of year whether it is bathed in summer sunshine or lashed with dramatic winter storms. The spectacular lights around the harbour and dotted around the village at Christmas and the New Year attract visitors from all around the world.

Mousehole is well placed to explore the West Penwith area which boasts many attractions such as the surf haven of Sennen, beautiful beaches such as Porthcurno also the home to the Minack Theatre, St. Ives and the famous Tate Gallery, Marazion and St. Michael’s Mount and further afield the city of Truro, the Lizard Peninsula, Falmouth, Newquay and the Eden Project and so on…….
