Step Inside

Cuttlefish is full to the brim with cosy, coastal appeal; bay windows frame beautiful blue views all around, a roll top bath beckons explorers after adventurous days, whilst the log burner crackles away in the most inviting of living rooms. Set over two floors, enter into the hallway and lead into the living, kitchen and dining areas, where a relaxed ambience sets the holiday scene. The open plan kitchen and dining area is simply beautiful, embracing natural textures and taking nothing away from those incredible ocean views. The farmhouse table is the setting for many drawn out suppers and warming fish dinners, and with the boats of Mousehole still bringing home the catch of the day, you are perfectly placed to enjoy the finest fresh produce that Cornwall has to offer. The living room is a snuggly haven in which families can kick back and relax among comforting tones and textures, still whilst taking in the stunning coastal surroundings. Upstairs, the two bedrooms promise blissful slumbers. The sumptuous master is a coastal zen complete with a bay window and arm chair to sink into, and the twin bedroom is a light filled and comfortable space. 

On Your Doorstep

The garden at Cuttlefish is your very own slice of paradise, elevated above the picturesque harbour. Three tiered with an outdoor kitchen and amazing sea views, this really is a rare find in Mousehole. Located just a few moments walk from the harbour, Cuttlefish allows for easy exploration of authentic Cornwall. Mousehole is the living definition of 'small is beautiful', with two little beaches protected by harbour walls, cobbled streets lined with cute houses, and an iconic festive light display on the harbour in December. Mousehole is also home to some fantastic cafes and eateries, including 2 Fore Street and The Old Coastguard. From Mousehole, take the short journey to Porthcurno, where the world famous Minack Theatre 'wow's with cliff edge performances, or head further west towards the magic and legend of Land's End. The swathe of golden sand at Sennen is simply stunning, whether you surf, walk or lay down a towel and stay put for the day. Cuttlefish is ideally situated for families or friends longing to immerse themselves in quintessential Mousehole.
