For the ultimate table beside-the-sea, the wooden dining table and bench seating is perfectly placed under the window. Lead through into the cottage sitting room and sink into the comfiest of sofas. Wile away the afternoon with a good book and watch the boats go by or, in the cooler months, cosy up beside the fire and watch the waves. From the kitchen area, stairs lead down to the basement level which offers further seating and a wonderful space to put on a favourite film on the large TV or enjoy the collection of LPs. Two beautifully dressed bedrooms are set on the first floor each offering serene havens of fresh white luxury linens and the finest beds. Awake to the sound of the sea and enjoy your morning cup of tea gazing out to the water. A shower room completes the layout of the first floor. From the stylish kitchen and comfortable sitting room to the luxury of the bedrooms, feel right at home at Glas Mor - Mousehole and enjoy an extra special holiday to remember.

From your Holiday Door

At your holiday front door steps are two perfectly placed benches on which to sit and soak up the character of the town and incredible sea views, from a morning coffee as the sun rises to an evening sundowner chatting to the locals and visitors alike, you may even spot the local seals basking on the rocks. St Clement's Isle - a small rocky islet once the home to an ancient hermit lies just offshore of the harbour wall right in front of the cottage. With the harbour just a short stroll away, the beach and the harbourside really are your extended outside space. Mousehole is proud of its heritage and tradition and maintains a truly Cornish ambiance, the colourful fishing boats still bring in the day's catch and the picture perfect cottages are home to local residents. With its 'way down West' location, Mousehole is home to a number of artisan cafes offering a hearty cream tea and delicious lunches, local pubs in which to sample Cornwall's ales, tempting restaurants and, of course, some of the best souvenir shopping. At low tide the golden sand beach is revealed and children will enjoy the safe sheltered shores and crystal blue sea swimming or jump in kayaks and explore a little further. Wile away your days exploring this wonderful village or, if a day trip is on the agenda, head to the other nearby beaches including Porthcurno and Sennen. The iconic landmark of St Michael's Mount, Marazion, is well worth a visit as guests walk across the ancient causeway to the castle. The larger coastal town of St Ives is within easy access or enjoy the University town of Falmouth.

From the moment you arrive, Glas Mor - Mousehole invites you to relax, unwind and re-energise as you discover the myth and magic of West Cornwall.
