The exquisite village of Mousehole, is home to this cottage, with its harbour, winding streets and sandy beach, Penzance, Minack Theatre make great days out.

Situated in the heart of the exquisite village of Mousehole (with its harbour, sandy beach, art galleries and cafes), this former net loft stands as one of a row in a secluded position. Built in 1851, the holiday home has been sympathetically refurbished and retains many character features. Set yards from the sea, visitors can explore the winding streets and coastal paths, and in winter enjoy the Mousehole Christmas illuminations. Alternatively, Penzance and the Minack Theatre – an open air theatre hewn into the cliff - or Sennen (famous for surfing and its wide sandy beach) make for enjoyable days out. Shop 50 yards.

    The property is tired and needs updating, some of the beds felt like there was plastic below the bottom sheets. The location is central but it has no outdoor space so for families not very suitable. The layout is strange with kitchen upstairs and the circular staircase takes up too much room. Although price is reasonable, personally we would pay a bit more for better accommodation.

    Lovely location close to the harbour and Mousehole was a beautiful as always. Although the house is able to sleep 6 the living area and kitchen is really only suitable for 4 at a push. It was great weather so the lack of living space didn't impact us too much but I should imagine that it would be very uncomfortable for 6 adults on a Cornish drizzly day. We knew that parking wasn't available on site, but it is almost impossible to park in the £3 per day car park as suggested on the website and the "free" promenade is never empty leaving only a £9 car park. We frequently had to move the car about 3 times a day and consequently ended up with a £60 ticket - obviously our fault, but indicative of the inconvenience of the parking situation which the website really doesn't adequately explain. Fantastic things to do in the area so we were certainly never bored.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your very kind feedback. Our cottage is located in a fantastic position only steps from the harbour front and, as with all tiny Cornish fishing villages, the layout of the tiny granite cottages does not allow for parking in the immediate vicinity in the centre of town. Driftwood does not advertise parking for your car. There are, however.a total of 3 car parks in Mousehole one of which is only just around the corner from Driftwood. We have always been able to park free on the promenade and it has never been an issue for us so we were somewhat surprised to hear your trouble parking unless there was a major event on in the area. We are very proud to have received the Peoples Choice Award for Driftwood and can definitely boast a lounge with high ceilings bigger than most in the village of Mousehole with a kitchen area on each floor and so cannot understand your comment on the living space. The dining table downstairs can seat 6 people and the dining table upstairs can seat 4 people which is ample for a party of up to 6 persons and 1 baby.
