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 Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Cobbler's Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is beautifully maintained with everything you need for comfort and fun. Mousehole is a welcoming village, and Melanie and her husband are most welcoming hosts. We so enjoyed meeting Melanie and learning more about the history of the cottage and the amazing village of Mousehole. There is so much to explore in the area, and so much to enjoy in the village that is just steps away from the cottage. Melanie responds immediately to emails and requests, and her cream tea and other welcoming touches make you feel at home immediately. We hope to come back again to this magical place! Thank you so much for a most memorable holiday.

Beautiful Cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

Mousehole is a really stunning village and to be able to stay right in the center is a huge plus.The beach is perfect for little ones with gentle sloping sand and an enclosed harbour. The eateries in the village are superb. This cottage has been carefully thought out for the needs of the holiday guest and the extra touches like the cream scones on arrival are most welcome after a long journey. We loved our stay here and will definitely be coming again

Character cottage in heart of Mousehole

  • 4 of 5

Full of character as one would expect from a Grade 1 listed property

Stay marred by noise of traffic, lack of privacy(blind/shutters needed for front door)

No phone signal and very weak wifi effectively only available in the kitchen(uses Owners own wifi next door) These were important criteria for us but may be less important to some guests

Parking/garage was the reason we chose property but this again was difficult as were blocked in on a couple of occasions and despite having only a small car was difficult to park etc

We love Mousehole and have stayed in the area a few times and the issues we had with property were those important to us but the cottage was beautifully restored and the cream tea was very welcome after a long drive.. wifi issue could be addressed .. but other negatives the flip side of staying in an old cottage in the heart of the village

Owner's Response: Thank you for your time to write this review. I appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately, mobile phone signals are very poor in our area of the village. We were aware of the weak WiFi which has now been rectified. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused. There is the use of a garage and alternative private parking space on site, if preferred.

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.

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…….
