About the property

Cottage in Mousehole, Cornwall, England - Recently Renovated, In A Quiet Spot In The Middle Of Mousehole

One beautifully appointed master bedroom enjoys the enviable position of the the top floor of this converted 3-storey 18th Century pilchard cottage. With full height ceiling, exposed beams and double doors straight out onto a large walk out balcony, this is the perfect haven for a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of life outside. Watch the tide sweeping in and out over the rooftops from the sunny balcony or enjoy a seasonal storm from the cosiness of your king-size custom made bed.

A cosy nook on the middle floor with sofa, chair and aesthetic log burner and a self-designed custom built kitchen and bathroom with walk in shower on the lower floor complete the interior of this recently refurbished fisherman's cottage.

Claire and Lawrence live just a few miles away in St Ives with their daughter and 2 year old cockapoo Monty. "We love living in Cornwall and bringing up our daughter in such a beautiful and peaceful place and have enjoyed designing, renovating and building our own home from a dairy barn and piggery overlooking St Ives Bay as well as our more recent project in Mousehole." Claire looks after both of their cottages in St Ives and Mouse hole herself whilst Lawrence works as a Lawyer (when he is not lovingly tending their garden and outside areas)!

CLAIRE FORD purchased this cottage in 2014

Why CLAIRE FORD chose South West Cornwall

We fell in love with this property when looking for our second renovation project in West Cornwall. Mousehole is one of the most special Cornish coastal villages in the county, rich in heritage, strong in community and renowned for its beautiful harbour, the mousehole lights, one black cat and star gazey pie! When we saw this unique 3 storey grade 2 listed pilchard cottage just minutes from the harbour we knew we had found something then we discovered the 180-degree harbour side view from the balcony at the top of the stairs and the sight of the sea over those quaint old town roofs was a sight we knew we wanted to share with future hope you agree!

What makes this cottage unique

Just yards from the seafront, The Bird House is tucked away from the bustle of the Main Street, and yet is within skipping distance of all that this little Cornish town has to offer.



The Bird House is 200M from the Harbour beach. Mousehole is within easy driving distance of some of the finest Cornish beaches - Marazion, Porthcurno Sennen and those of St Ives.


2 miles to Penzance

12 miles to St Ives

3 miles to Lamorna

9 miles to Sennen

30 miles to Truro

8 miles to Portcurno/Minack theatre

Further Details:

All of the fine restaurants of Mousehole are within a short walk form The Bird House. There are several fine pubs form the historic Ship Inn to the award winning Old Coastguard Inn. There is a local cornerstone for the basics and the usual large supermarkets in nearby Penzance.
