The space

A beautiful cottage in the heart of Mousehole, Cornwall. The cottage is 5 minutes from Mousehole Harbour - which is incredibly picturesque. The village itself has a few good restaurants, local shops and plenty of interesting galleries. The nearest towns of Newlyn and Penzance are 2/3 miles away with local buses running every 30 minutes. Many excellent sandy beaches all within 20 minutes drive and lots of super coastal walks.

The cottage is very cosy, with a log burning stove. There is a light kitchen/dining room, (with washing machine, full gas oven/hob and microwave) a living room (with stove) a downstairs bedroom/study which has a single bed. There are 2 small doubles and a bathroom with tub and shower upstairs. There is a very small outside space as the cottage is just off the road/lane, and there is a small space with bench in the courtyard which has many plants. It is very tastefully decorated throughout and we have left many works of art and ceramics from local craftspeople in the cottage to keep it feeling homely. The owner (my mother) looks after the cottage and guests and lives just across a small courtyard in an annexe/loft.

Most cottages in Mousehole are let for a minimum of a week but we are open to shorter bookings. Unfortunately we do not think the cottage is suitable for young children. Dogs are welcome on the condition they are never left alone, go upstairs and the owners hoover thoroughly before leaving. It is best suited to one or two couples. Or a small group of friends who want to relax - Mousehole is a quiet sleepy village.
Unfortunately mobile phone signal is not great, depending on your provider and where you are in the village!

Rosa's cottage was very cosy and full of character. Rosa left us with staples, as you'd expect, but also bread, butter, eggs and milk which was very much appreciated. The cottage is in s perfect position for exploring Mousehole, and surrounding areas. The wifi, washing machine et…

Rosa's friend and representative, Grete, made us very welcome. She introduced us to the lovely little cottage and gave us lots of useful information about the local area. The cottage was cosy and full of character exactly as described and the local area was friendly and accessibl…

Rosa welcomed us with a sign on the street with my name on it so we couldn't miss it. Rosa was extremely welcoming and took the time to make sure we knew where everything was. She also checked in on us a few times during our stay and took the time to have a chat.

Rosa's cottage was delightful. It was clean, bright and comfortable with loads of character. A perfect location to explore the coastal path on foot and the sights of Cornwall by car. We had thought that parking might be a problem but it worked for us with only short walks from…

Mousehole is the most charming village. So too was our host Rosa whose beautiful artwork is displayed around the house. The cottage has two bedrooms and two living rooms so was just right for two couples. The bright sunny kitchen opens onto a small courtyard where we used our BBQ…
