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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We thank you for your feedback. Sorry that the beautiful village of Mousehole and our holiday cottage was not to your taste. We are very proud that Driftwood received a Customers Choice Award 2016 which is a true reflection of our guests enjoyment. We do not advertise a garden but it does have its own front courtyard and we can happily say in our opinion that it is one of the prettiest and most photographed courtyards in Mousehole. The property is very suitable for families and is right in the heart of the village with the beach only a few metres away. Driftwood is part of the Heritage Collection and its front courtyard was used to roll the barrels of pilchards up from the once bustling fishing harbour. It still has the original winch hook and beam above the original net loft door. It also has a long front courtyard set back from the road with garden furniture to sit on and watch the world go by. We have paid particular attention to furnishing and retaining many character features in keeping with the age of the property as it is part of the heritage collection. The property boasts a very wide Bespoke Spiral Staircase which is bigger than most. We also cater for those that do not want to use the stairs with the addition of a kitchen/utility area downstairs, and a small downstairs double bedroom with en-suite shower room. We have two very large comfortable Laura Ashley sofas in the lounge area. All our facilities provide top of the range appliances and the mattresses are of the best quality, protected by hygienic mattress protectors as is a requirement of English Country Cottages. We hope we have addressed all your comments.
