Abbey Place Net Loft is converted from an old loft used by fishermen to hang and mend their nets. Located right in the centre of Mousehole about 10 metres back from the harbour this cosy little cottage benefits from modern functionality whilst keeping all it's historic charm. The property is set over two floors with a bright and airy lofted living area upstairs and double bedroom and bathroom downstairs.

The space
Please note that there is a sofa bed in the lounge, so as well as 2 guests staying in the double bedroom, it is possible for up to 2 children or a 3rd adult to stay on the sofa bed if you so wish. The AirBnB guest settings don't allow for this when entering numbers (as it is basically a 1 double bedroom property) but it is perfectly ok to use the sofa bed. Do let me know though so I can arrange for extra bedding to be left out.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the whole property. The key can be retrieved from a key safe by the front door. The code will be provided a month or so before your arrival date, so you will be able to arrive and leave any time during your stay. Please note that the property is located up a flight of about 10 steps and also has an internal staircase.

Please message us if you are interested in staying for longer than a week and we will be more than willing to try and accommodate you!

Other things to note
Please message us for multi-full week booking enquiries as it is currently difficult to set these up on the calendar. But we can do so on request.


The kitchen area is equipped with everything you would expect in a self catering holiday cottage with crockery and cutlery for 4 people, plenty of pots, a frying pan, toaster, microwave, cafetière, fridge and a nice big Belfast sink to do the washing up in!


The dining area has a circular table with double drop leave edges to create extra space in the living area if just two guests are staying. The edges can be raised to make a circular dining table for four. There is a set of four dining chairs in the property too. You will normally find two by the table and the other two elsewhere in the flat, usually in the bedroom!


The living area has a Freeview TV with DVD player and selection of classic films, a sofa bed (big enough to sleep two children, a cosy couple but possibly not two large rugby players!). There are also lots of books on local folklore, history and smuggling that are great to read on a stormy night.

Free and unlimited "Fibre" WiFi is available in Abbey Place Net Loft (measured at 32MB/second download). Login details will be provided before you arrive.


The bathroom has a bath an electric shower, bath, washbasin and toilet.


Please bear in mind that as Mousehole is an old fishing village full of granite buildings so mobile phone signal is generally not good. However, if your phone and network allows "WiFi Calls", you can get perfect mobile signal inside Abbey Place Net Loft by connecting to our WiFi connection!

Like most properties in the very centre of Mousehole village, we don't have our own parking space. There are however 3 car parks nearby that cost from £3 per day with the nearest less than 100 metres away. Please see the last picture in our gallery for a map showing where the car parks are.

Abbey Place Net Loft is owned by Andy & Brooke. We have been welcoming guests into our holiday home since 2008. Along with housekeeper Jackie we try to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible and aim to make our Net Loft feel like a home from home.


We fell in love with Mousehole whilst on a walking holiday in west Cornwall in 2005. There is a great sense of community in the village which is never felt more than during the various carnivals and festivals held in the village throughout the year and of course when the legendary Mousehole Christmas lights are on! When this Net Loft came onto the market in 2007 we decided to seize this rare opportunity to purchase a flat so close to the centre of the village and run it as a holiday let.

Location

Mousehole, England, United Kingdom

The poet Dylan Thomas described Mousehole as the loveliest village in England, although many Cornishman would dispute that this part of the world can be described as England! With old world charm, its streets are filled with many art galleries, small shops, and restaurants.
The sheltered harbour contains a small beach suitable for families.


There are a number of lovely walks that can be undertaken from Mousehole. The most popular is along the coastal path around to the next cove, Lamorna where you can stop for refreshment at the Lamorna Wink pub. Please check opening hours though before you set off as it is not open all day.


There are a number of restaurants, pubs and cafes in Mousehole:


• The Ship Inn (Free Wi-Fi) - the nearest pub to Abbey Place Net Loft, located about 50 metres away by the harbour side. The pub remains at the heart of the very friendly local community and offers a traditional English pub food menu.


• The Old Coastguard (Free Wi-Fi) - bar and award winning restaurant located in sub-tropical gardens leading to the sea with relaxed ambience and fantastic sea views.


• 2 Fore Street, Mousehole - a lovely bistro in Mousehole that's style is very popular. An affordable menu that reflects the catch and the season.


• 'Hole Foods Deli & Cafe - with lovely views across the harbour this local deli offers a selection of breads, sandwiches, coffee, cold meats and cheese as well as lots of other local produce.


• Rock Pool Cafe (Free Wi-Fi) - located on top of the rocks above the old Mousehole rock pool this charming cafe is great for cakes, coffee and lunch whilst enjoying the unparalleled sea views. There is even a nice cosy snug outside for those lucky enough to find it not already occupied by other customers!
