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.

Perfect holiday run away.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is ideally located in the centre of Mousehole village close to the harbour and restaurants. The beautiful South West Coastal path runs through the village and is perfect for day hikes.

Melanie and Phillip welcomed us on arrival and the cottage was more than we expected - every detail catered for even down to bubbly in the fridge and a prepared Cornish cream tea to enjoy after our journey.

We were so impressed that we booked it again for the end of 2017 before leaving for home.

October break in Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in Mousehole. The cottage was perfect - warm, cosy, clean and very comfortable. Melanie welcomed us - even though we were late arriving, which made us feel very welcome . The cream tea and bottle of wine left for us was a nice surprise and after a long journey made us feel at home.

Favourite Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Mousehole is a favourite haunt of ours and we haved stayed at Cobblers, as a family, a couple of times now (we have 2 more trips booked as well!) Cobblers is well equipped, comfortable, has its own parking space which is an absolute bonus and the hosts (Melanie and Phillip) are very welcoming going the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay. Nikkie and I can't recommend Cobblers Cottage highly enough

A lovely quaint cottage which allows you to relax and get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage for our summer get away. It has been beautifully renovated and we really enjoyed our stay. The owners, Melanie and Phillip, who live next door, were very friendly and welcoming which made our stay all the more enjoyable. It is certainly a big bonus to have a parking space especially when you have an MPV like us, as the roads in Mousehole are very tight and parking is limited. Mousehole is a lovely location with various pubs, restaurants and shops to explore. It is also a great base to explore Cornwall and we found some lovely beaches which are less busy than those on the west coast.

Spacious comfortable cottage in an ideal location .

  • 5 of 5

Cobblers Cottage has been tastefully restored and is surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The garage is a major benefit in view of the restricted parking in Mousehole.

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…….
