This adorable cottage in the heart of picturesque Mousehole offers the ideal base to explore this stunning region.

At the heart of one of Cornwall's most picturesque villages lies Mary's Loft, an adorable cottage which makes for a perfect romantic retreat. The cosy three-storey property is located on a quiet street in Mousehole, one of Cornwall's most historic fishing villages, maintaining incomparable character, charm and beauty, dating back to 1266. Open the bedroom curtains to sights of the sea, then step out of the front door to the soft sounds of a working fishing port, salty air fresh on your face.

The nautical-themed interior mirrors this, with understated wooden furniture and an aquatic colour scheme alluding to your seafaring setting. Enjoy cooking and dining in the spacious kitchen, or relaxing in the airy lounge, before venturing out into your serene surroundings. Return home to drift off under crisp sheets and rustic exposed ceiling beams.

You're never far from one of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches, with Sennen Cove, Porthcurno and Porthminster all within a 12-mile drive.

The village itself has a good range of pubs, restaurants, galleries and local craft shops for you to explore, while the gorgeous harbour (famed for its outstanding Christmas lights display), offers sweeping views across Mount's Bay to St Michael's Mount.

An immaculate little cottage right in the heart of the little fishing village of Mousehole. A well equipped kitchen, a comfortable lounge and a bathroom with shower, plus an extra toilet downstairs. The cottage is laid out on three floors. There is no garden to sit in, but the beautiful harbour is only a minutes walk away. There is an excellent fisRead moreh restaurant and a popular pub.

The cottage is located in the centre of Mousehole. Parking was a few minutes away on the harbour and cost 3 per day. There is very little we would do to improve this sweet little cottage, perhaps a bigger screen TV and WIFI but everything was clean and plenty of kitchen equipment was provided. Some have complained about the noisy seagulls but when Read moreyou are in a coastal fishing village, seagulls are part and parcel. Just enjoy them. Hide

Ideal for a couple. Very well appointed and close to everything in Mousehole. We had no problems with parking next to the Harbour Wall for our 5 day stay. Excellent Bus service into Penzance. Seagulls on roof outside bedroom feeding their young - quite a racket!

We had a great stay in this quaint little cottage. It sits in a fantastic location with views out to sea from the bedroom. The cream tea waiting for us was delicious and a lovely touch. There's a fantastic selection of cafes and a pub nearby with some of the freshest and most delicious fish we have ever tasted (try the crab sandwiches!).

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
