A wonderful Cornish cottage from which to explore Cornwall
Head way down to the West and arrive at postcard perfect Mousehole. Stunning Gull Cottage is perched right on the water's edge, boasting unrivalled interior design and ocean views. The cottage is perfectly placed to explore charming Mousehole, which is abuzz with life not only in the Summer, but also at the dazzling Christmas lights display in December. Unwind in your beautiful home for a while, and when you feel like a walk, wander to the sandy beach and coastal bustle in seconds.
Cornish Gems are pleased to welcome Gull Cottage to the Mousehole portfolio - explore the West of Cornwall from this oh-so-stylish cottage made-for-two
Step through your holiday door and you are welcomed into the beautiful dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. The dining table is ideally placed in front of the sea facing window - just as perfect for your Summer breakfast as it is for wave watching over a Winter supper. The unique patterned floor in fresh blue and warm neutrals leads into the kitchen, and hints at the creative design that awaits. A fine fit for any budding chef, the modern kitchen makes cooking a joy. Stroll down to the harbour front to collect the freshest of seafood, and cook up a feast. Even the washing up is made enjoyable; the stunning deep gold sink and tap matches the thoughtful touches throughout. Heading up the staircase to the first floor, natural light streams into the serene bedroom. Tune into the Roberts radio, sink into the luxury linens and lose yourself in the view once again. In the statement ensuite, the luxury continues with the waterfall shower - a treat for sandy toes and salty hair! Ascend again up to the 2nd floor, the inviting living room is an uplifting space in which to relax, snuggle up by the log fire with a book from the thoughtful collection, or watch the comings and goings of harbour life from the chair by the window.
On Your Doorstep
In your holiday front garden, outdoor seating is perfectly positioned for soaking up the incredible sea and harbour views. St Michael's Mount can be seen just off the Marazion coast, along with St Clements Isle; a rocky islet that is often a sanctuary for seagulls and seals. Watch the bobbing boats bringing in the catch of the day as you breathe in the salty breeze. With its way down West location, Mousehole epitomises the classic Cornish Idyll; wiggling alleyways, a buzzing harbourfront and plenty of independent shops to nose around. Dawdle away your days in this beautiful village, or if a day trip is on the agenda, head to Penzance and walk the cobbled causeway to St Michael's Mount. This castle is riddled with myth and legend, and is a memorable day out for the whole family. If you can bear to leave Gull Cottage for dinner, The Old Coastguard is a favourite in Cornwall and serves plenty of fresh seafood as you might have guessed! Iconic coastal towns of Land's End, St Ives and Falmouth are all within easy driving distance of Gull Cottage.
