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.

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.

We had a lovely stay at this cottage. Its in a great location. Brilliant for my teens to go down to the harbour themselves. Had everything we needed, could breakfast outside with view down the lane.

Cosy, well equipped, nice furnished and at all a top accomodation for me and my three teenagers!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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…….
