Set directly on the harbour front in the amazingly picturesque village of Mousehole, Harbour Moon is our first property outside St Ives, and as with all our cottages the design is predictably unpredictable! Materials used internally reflect those seen from the cottage overlooking the sea. Rough granite juxtaposed with Cornish 'shrimper ' coloured lime render, walls clad with worn wooden planks, ropes and rusty chains… this is certainly not your average cottage but a unique and beautiful space, perfect for a romantic escape or honeymoon. On entering there is a hall and cloakroom/WC. Beyond is an open plan kitchen and sitting room which has a glass panel in the ceiling giving the impression of double height space. There is a large comfortable sofa, a smart TV /DVD and a wood burning stove....Set directly on the harbour front in the amazingly picturesque village of Mousehole, Harbour Moon is our first property outside St Ives, and as with all our cottages the design is predictably unpredictable!

There is a large comfortable sofa, a smart TV /DVD and a wood burning stove... great for cozying up on cold winter nights and a table with two chairs. The first floor has sail loft style being a large space with stone walls and double height ceiling. The bespoke headboard doubles as a room divider and dressing table with plentiful storage for clothes. Behind this is a huge walk in shower, from which there is also a view of the sea and a hammered bronze basin. A super king size custom made bed sits against the headboard inset with rows of rope and chain. From the bed the scenes of bobbing boats, harbour wall and waves crashing beyond is magnified through the glass floor allowing views from the ground floor, first floor and sky lights to merge into one. Harbour Moon is located on Mousehole harbour front. Within a five minute walk you can find exceptional restaurants including The Old Coastguard, Number2 Fore Street and The Ship Inn, to name but a few. In addition there are various lovely delis and galleries hidden within the narrow lanes in the village. Parking is extremely limited in Mousehole, there are three options: - closest to the house are two harbour car parks, about a 3 minute walk around the harbour - There is a larger car park adjacent to the Old Coast Guard hotel about a 7 minute walk towards the edge of the village - Finally there is street-side parking on the road into Mousehole about a 15 minute walk from the house More

Just returned from 2 nights here - wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage exceeded expectations: beautifully designed with quality features and wonderfully quirky.

About the neighbourhood
Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End. Its narrow streets are filled with small shops, galleries and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, huddle together around the inner edge of the harbour. The area is protected from the force of the sea by two sturdy breakwaters. Dylan Thomas who was married there, described the village as the loveliest in England, but there are many Cornishman who would dispute that this part of the world can be classed as England! The village is famous for its Christmas lights, which illuminate the harbour in the depths of winter, and for Tom Bawcock's Eve, a traditional pre-Christmas celebration commemorating a local hero who saved the village from famine by bracing the stormy seas to bring back fish for the starving villagers.
