A short walk from the pretty harbour, this home couldn't be more typical of Mousehole if it tried. Once declared 'the loveliest village in England' by Dylan Thomas, 'Mowzul' is an ever-popular place to visit with narrow streets lined with historic cottages. Set over three floors, this former fisherman's loft is Grade II listed and has just the right balance of character features and modern, coastal-inspired styling. On the ground floor, a modern, eat-in kitchen provides everything you'll need for cooking at home, while the comfortable living room upstairs has the home's main entrance, an electric fire and a charming window seat. The top floor bedrooms are pretty special and we particularly love the vaulted ceilings and clever internal porthole windows. From the master bedroom, you can even see across to St Clement's Isle and beyond – what could be better? Stroll to the nearby, shops, cafes and restaurants or drive to Lamorna Cove (ten minutes) or Penzance (fifteen minutes).

About Mousehole

This tiny Cornish fishing village packs an unexpected arty punch. Set on the hills above Mousehole Harbour, its winding, cottage-filled streets feature four art galleries. The surrounding area is known for its creativity, with many artists having lived in the nearby communities. Perhaps it’s the beautiful coastline, dramatic woodlands, or the coastal walks where clifftops seem to be blanketed in a colourful coat of yellow gorse, green ferns and purple...
