Whilst the dabbling is a large cottage and very well equipped the heating is controlled by owner on his remote and we had to contact agent to get it sorted it took 3 days .... the lounge was cold in the evenings no sunlight in the area in daytime .the place was clean and well equipped but soffas in main lounge not comfy .Nice and close to harbour. But parking ticket had to be purchased every night £5. That adds up to £70 when staying 2 weeks on top of your cottage fee. That could be a problem in hight of summer when car park is full.

Mr Potts September 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at the Dabblings. The location is ideal for the harbour, the restaurants and cafes. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with all the facilities you would need.
Mrs Westhead June 2021
We had a delightful stay at The Dabblings. The cottage was beautifully presented and we lacked for nothing. Very comfortable and “home from home”.mple space, decor, well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds and fresh linen. Location and close proximity to the harbour. Quiet - apart from the seagulls! Mousehole is a great place to holiday. We will definitely be booking with Classic Cottages again as their standards are high and there is a great choice of accommodation. Very helpful staff when booking.

Mr Reeves April 2021
Adored Dabblings. I cannot fault. I’d rather not say exceptional as I’d like to keep this little gem to myself.
Mr Wright April 2021
Quaint cottage in a lovely village. It is much bigger than you expect from the front of the house. The wood burner was wonderful and warmed us up on chilly nights
Mrs Green October 2020
We had a very happy and peaceful stay in this fabulous cottage that had everything we needed and more in a beautiful setting.
Miss Adams October 2020
The 'Dabblings' cottage is based in a fabulous location in Mousehole, Cornwall. It is central to Newlyn, Penzance, Marazion, Porthcurno, Lamorna Cove, and many other towns are in reach if you have a car. The cottage has a home from home feel, and is really cosy. It is incredibly spacious and has a lovely outdoor area. For the colder months snuggle up to the lovely log burner. The 'Dabblings' has everything you need for the perfect break, and is great value for money. Once you have stayed, you will want to return.

Thanks for reviewing The Dabblings. It's such a cosy little cottage, perfect for returning to after a long days exploring whatever the weather or time of year. A steaming cup of hot chocolate and a blanket in front of that beautiful wood-burner is just the perfect end to a busy day. Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Groom September 2019

Mrs Bowen August 2019
Beautiful cottage in a quaint little fishing village in Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dabblings, as it really was home from home, cosy, comfy and a well equipped cottage with everything you would need for a family. Children loved sharing their surfing experiences over the cosy kitchen/dinning area or the cosy front room. We're already planning our return visit to the Dabblings. Thank you for a a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable stay.

Mr Lewis October 2018
A really lovely property in a very quiet village. Tucked away on a very quaint side street. Beautifully furnished and super-comfortable. We really couldn't fault anything. There is no on-site parking, but there are two car parks literally a few steps away (bring lots of £1 coins- as there is no way to pay using a phone app etc!) HIGHGLY recommended.
Mrs Behrens October 2018
It‘s an excellent cottage, very close to the harbour and well equipped. We had a lovely stay (our second stay at the Dabblings) and will definitely come back!
Mr Wagg August 2018
Furnishings, decorations, spacious kitchen/dining area, pleasant rear patio larger than expected. V quiet and great location. Large bedrooms with good storage (cept bunkbed room). Excellent shower in main bathroom. Good laundry area tho did not use.
Mrs Cressey August 2018
Lovely homely cottage, with lots of very thoughtful extra details to make it a very family friendly place. Comfy beds with fluffy towels and two great showers. Spacious bright kitchen and what a lovely new little garden area to sit in. Massive bonus to have a separate utility area, made life much easier. Thank you for a happy stay.
Mr Dawson August 2018
Idyllic retreat in a fabulous central location.

Ms Ryan August 2017
A beautiful place to stay with plenty of space and an airy feel. So relaxing. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Mr Bagley July 2017
A lovely, spacious place to stay for a group with children and infants. As a group of four adults, a baby and a toddler there was plenty of room to stretch out and never feel on top of each other. The utility area was also a godsend at nappy changing time! Recommended for a homely, cosy stay.
Mrs Palmer April 2017
Great holiday let good vaue for money will definitely be returning to Mousehle & would look at booking the Dabblings again . A well equipped comfortable cottage in a great location.
Mrs Parker December 2016
Very spacious and well equipped cottage in a good location.
Mrs Sturla September 2016
We are obviously very happy staying at The Dabblings as this is the third consecutive year we have holidayed in this delightful cottage. A welcome package awaited us on arrival including fresh flowers, such a thoughtful gesture. As always the cottage was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and very spacious. Lovely comfortable beds and excellent showers. To sum it up The Dabblings is the perfect home from home. As soon as I step inside I just know it's going to be another wonderful holiday in Mousehole.
Ms Baker May 2016
This is a wonderful cottage, fantastically situated and equipped. We had breakfast outside on the patio and cold beers sitting at the harbour in the evening. There is a fabulous deli and paper shop. It would be difficult to find a better cittage. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.
Mrs Thompson December 2015
The most well equipped and comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in, in a peaceful and central location. Being there for Christmas was quite magical.
Miss Daniels October 2015
Dabblings is a really lovely cottage, beautifully presented with high-quality furnishings and fittings. It is very spacious... much bigger than it looks for the outside. Tardis-like even. Everything in the cottage is of the best quality, from the pictures on the walls to the plates and appliances.
Oh, and the welcome pack. We were thrilled to find a bottle of wine, a litre of milk, biscuits, tea, coffee and... beautiful fresh flowers. How wonderful. We'll definitely book again.
Mrs Sturla September 2015
Its sometimes said that you should never go back to somewhere that you have fond memories of as it can be disappointing. Not so with The Dabblings, the cottage was as clean, comfortable and welcoming as the previous year we stayed. We are so taken with it that we have already booked for September next year. It is a perfectly situated home from home, we feel blessed to have found it.
Ms Sheff September 2015
A beautiful cottage in a stunning village. Very well thought out, very modern bright and breezy decor. Very comfy - loved the Everhot stove! Great having two bathrooms. Would stay again..
Mr Castle July 2015
Nicely situated in a delightful location, clean and comfortable, well equipped. We like it so much we have rebooked for next year. Ideal for us (two adults) for a car free holiday - train to Penzance, busses every 20 minutes to and from Mousehole, good walking in the area.
Mrs Sturla September 2014
A beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. We were impressed with the standard of cleanliness throughout. Ideal for families as its appearance from the outside is deceptive and its very spacious. Staying at The Dabblings is a joy,we were sad to leave but we intend to go back, its the best cottage we have ever stayed in

For up to four adults and two children The Dabblings is a fantastic place to stay. Spacious, exceptionally well furnished and excellent location. Would certainly return.
Mr Aspin October 2013
Beautiful cottage! The owners have thought of everything, a real home from home. Decor, cleanliness were spot on and the fixtures and fittings very good quality. In fact, I could live there myself! We'll definitely return when we are back to see our family down there. Wish I was there now!
Mrs Phillips September 2013
The Dabblings is the perfect place to spend your holiday in Mousehole...a very comfortable cottage with everything you could need .It is a good base from which to explore the surrounding area and a welcoming base to return to after a busy day !!
Mrs Francis August 2013
We stayed in this lovely cottage with our Son his wife and our grandchildren. The accommodation worked well for us superbly equipped, having a double room and ensuite for us while the children were able to share a room and my son and his wife had their won space and family bathroom.
The living room space, kitchen area and the outside additional dining space was great, a lot of thought has gone into making this s uper holidy home. The location could not be better in the heart of Mousehole with lots of lovely Restuarants and the beech just 100 metres away.
Mr Clouting August 2013
This is probably the best cottage we've stayed in over the years. It's spacious, tastefully decorated and really comfortable.
