We had a lovely host, a very peaceful setting, beautiful views and very comfortable stay, we will look forward to visiting again next year.

User friendly site.

We had a great stay at Elvan Loft. The views from the window are fabulous, you can easily sit and watch the changing sea all day long - we even spotted a seal one day. Great location, only a 5 minute walk to the harbour. Parking and good wi-fi included. Cormorant cruises was a worthwhile boat trip if you want to spot a dolphin!

We're thrilled to hear that you had a great stay at Elvan Loft - we have to agree, the views of Mousehole from this property really are exceptional! We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Meg, Customer Support

Perfect location,the lodge was very well equipped and comfortable,brilliant stay 10/10

Great location with a spectacular view out to sea. Easy walk down into Mousehole for dinner. Close to all the places we like to visit in that lovely part of Cornwall.

Classic Cottages made our booking very easy and were helpful when I enquired if we could go to the cottage early, with good advice.

I can thoroughly recommend Elvan Loft. It is a small, tranquil space with a stunning view of the sea and everything we needed for a wonderful weeks break.

We loved the location only a short walk down into Mousehole, and the parking space is a definite bonus. The apartment is full of light with a fantastic view across the bay and very well equipped. The bed is extremely comfortable. It is flat walk of about half an hour into Newlyn and there is a lovely walk along the costal path into Lamorna. Linda is an extremely welcoming and helpful host and we would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Elvan loft surpassed my expectations. The location and views are fantastic and the flat very comfortable and cosy. I will definitely be returning!

We really loved this property. The view is amazing and it's a great place to sit and enjoy watching the sea. The sunrises were fantastic to watch from our armchairs! We loved the walk from the property to Lamorna Cove with it's wonderful cafe. The spacious hallway is good for muddy boots and coats and then the loft area is very cosy.

Linda, the owner was very helpful and friendly. The accommodation was located in a very picturesque village overlooking the sea. It contained everything we required for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Second visit to this lovely holiday location. Everything same as the first which is why we returned. Parking space provided which is a real bonus at this location. The property is a real delight with truly exceptional views out to sea - bring a set of binoculars, you won't regret it. The property is comfortable, very clean and has everything you need. Linda, the owner, is a gem. Tony and Carol.

Brilliant 2 weeks in this lovely apartment. Really well laid out and well equipped. The owner couldn't have been more helpful ( had to call the AA) and the bus services are cheap and we'll organized! The fridge has a decent size ice box, handy to reduce shopping. Fish and Chips at Newlyn is great!

Elvan Loft is in a fantastic position for a stay in Mousehole. With a parking space at the property included for your stay, it puts your mind at rest, so you don't have the worry of finding a space in the carpark and extra parking fees. It is situated up two levels on the cliff (hence the lovely views) before you go down into Mousehole Harbour and can be driven too quiet easily, but it is steep. Walking up is easier than it looks as long as your mobile. You're on holiday so need to rush just take your time. It is a very well-equipped property with one bedroom ideal for a couple or a single traveller. The views from the two large windows at the front of the property are beautiful and perfect for watching the Sun rise over the sea. They provide lots of light in the apartment even on the cloudiest of days and it has a comfortable bed for the end of a perfect day from site seeing and walking the beautiful coastal walks. It is an upstairs apartment/flat in a house with a lovely host living in the property downstairs. You have your own door to access the property and it is very private. The only downfall is the stairs could be difficult if you have some mobility difficulties. It provides easy access to Penzance, St Michaels Mount, The Minack Theatre, Lands' End and St. Ives to name a few. There is a Lovely Cinema in Newlyn which is modern and close by in the next small town. Accessible by car or bus or even walking if you're up to it. It has very comfortable seating, a lovely bar and restaurant area where you can have dinner before your film or a light snack and drink. They allow you to take your drink in the cinema with you (purchased from the bar of course,) but have a no eating or crunching policy so no popcorn! Mousehole has a couple of Restaurants, Cafes and Pubs and delightful shops and galleries to visit whilst there. The Harbour in Mousehole is a delight, with a nice sandy beach which is enjoyed by toddlers and adults alike and many go for swim in the Harbour Sea. There is a regular Bus service from Mousehole to Penzance which is widely used by walkers passing through and day trippers, holiday makers and friendly locals who live there. What more could you want.

The position of the property was excellent and having parking in Mousehole was a real bonus. Perfect to walk from the door only 5 minutes into Mousehole or very pleasant walk into Newlyn/Penzance. Lovely walk over the fields to Lamorna Cove so pretty with all the woodland flowers and hedgerows. Very comfortable stay with everything that we needed. The property is very well equipped. It has the most amazing sea view from the lounge window where we enjoyed watching the boats and bird life. Weather was amazing and we hope to return next year.

Elvan Loft is a real gem. Ideally situated for touring the whole of the peninsula, and for taking in the delights of the unspoilt seaside village of Mousehole. The view from the property is fantastic and the apartment is very well appointed. The owner lives below the apartment and is there if you need anything. We found a lovely welcome pack of coffee, tea, milk, biscuits and fresh cut flowers waiting for us on our arrival. Will definitely stay there again, all being well.

We had a lovely week at Elvan Loft and will happily stay there again. One important thing no note that is not really covered in the property description. The flat is accessed up a steep and narrow lane, leading to an even steeper drive. From the parking space there is a short, steep flight of stairs to reach the door, and finally another flight of stairs to the flat itself.

Should you be a nervous driver, and/or have limited mobility, then you will struggle.

Otherwise please do not let these comments put you off, this is a very nice flat in an excellent location.

The views are stunning at all times of day and in all weathers. Ideally located for walks along the coast and up to Paul and for the frequent buses into Penzance. The apartment is warm and comfortable and Linda is a friendly and welcoming host. We enjoyed lunches at the Rock Pool Cafe and at 2 Fore Street in Mousehole as well as the Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn. For pasty lovers, Aunty Mays in Newlyn has the best!

Elvan Loft is a lovely, cosy apartment with the most beautiful views. A perfect location for touring the area and going on wonderful walks. Also it's only a few minutes walk to the middle of Mousehole to be able to enjoy the local restaurants and pubs without driving! We would definitely recommend this property.

This is my second time staying at this property and won't be my last. I love its coziness, the splendid views of the sea and St. Michaels Mount, and the ease of getting around by bus if you don't have a vehicle. The location couldn't be better...A five minute walk to Mousehole harbor. It might be a tad tight quarters for two people depending upon their size and how well they get along. ?? The owner is very sweet!

How wonderful that you enjoyed your second visit at Elvan Loft as much as your first. The location and views really are superb. It sounds like you made the most of exploring the stunning surrounding area. We very much hope that we have the oppurtunity to welcome you back for a third stay. Julie, Customer Support

The Owner Linda is a very nice lady who was very helpful and friendly.

This was our 3rd stay at Elvan Loft and we once again had a fantastic time. Linda is a great host and a lovely lady. The accommodation is perfect and we loved the new kitchen. We love the Mousehole area and Elvan Loft is a great base! The views from the accommodation are amazing, we have seen seals and dolphins on our stay.

We had a wonderful stay at Elvan Loft. The owner of Elvan Loft was a wonderful host. She made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we could need. The view was amazing, the bed was very comfortable and the property was spotless and well provisioned. The biscuits and flowers were a welcome touch. Even had a small telescope in the window so we could watch the seals. There was a lovely little area by the back door to sit in the shade and enjoy a morning coffee. A lovely area to explore with some fabulous beaches within a short drive. We would highly recommend this property for all the above reasons. just be aware if you have mobility issues that it is up a steep drive with steps and stairs and as it is a loft property the bathroom and shower area is understandably not very large.

Great place as a base for visiting furthest reaches of Cornwall. Views of the bay and St Michael's Mount are stunning.

the view is exceptional

We would definitely stay there again, a perfect location with wonderful sea views

We had a lovely stay at Elvan loft. Easy to find and very comfortable and clean. Views are superb. Well worth a visit.

A lovely compact apartment with fabulous views of the ever-changing sea. Breakfast watching the Newlyn fishing boats going out. Comfortable and convenient, a lovely place to stay.

Could not fault the delightful property or its wonderful position, or our landlady Linda.

Ideally situated for a lovely relaxing holiday. Also perfectly placed for easily visiting all of West Cornwall. Some holiday highlights were:- * walking to Penzance from the flat * walking to Newlyn and having lunch at Mackerel Sky *visiting Geevor Tin Mine *walking to Lands End from Sennen Cove *delicious lunch at The Gurnards Head near Zennor *visiting The Minack Theatre and Porthcurno beach *fantastic meal at The Fore Street Bistro in Mousehole *visiting Gunwalloe and Church Cove *walking from Carbis Bay to St Ives and a good wander around the town *lots of trips to The Rock Pool Cafe in Mousehole for a coffee, a crab sandwich or a glass of wine in the evening. Perfect!

A lovely practical apartment with all basic requirements for two people together with a beautiful view and an added bonus a parking space! The location is perfect for touring this part of Cornwall.

Such a lovely and very comfy property with incredible views. It was so nice to stay there.

Very efficient and friendly team where I booked the holiday and very helpful when I was due to arrive at the cottage as my Satnav went a bit crazy. Lovely clean cottage with fantastic panoramic views. Landlady was particularly charming and friendly.

The parking was useful, and very welcome, in such a busy area, once you got used to it. The most amazing seaviews. Tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and flowers on arrival a really nice touch. Small freezer, in addition to fridge, very useful. Would certainly return for another visit.

An ideal location for exploring the beautiful area. There is so much to se and enjoy!

We enjoyed our week in this small and cosy appartment. When you are hiring it, don't forget to look through the telescope; we saw seals (4-10) every day.

A very comfortable and compact holiday flat. Great location a couple of minutes walk into mousehole and the added bonus of a parking space.Linda was very helpful and friendly but not intrusive, We will return.

Great location with amazing views you can look at for hours, eveything you need for a comfortable holiday. Host Linda very helpful and on hand if you needed her, Mousehole is a fantastic place to stay and a good base for exploring West Cornwall. Fully recommend this property.

An excellent position over looking the bay and 2 minutes from the harbour. Will definately go again.

Been in quite a few places now in Cornwall this places location is the best. All you wake up to is the sound of the sea and as you open the curtains you see the sea. Absolute superb and again I say thank you for a great stay.

For a quiet break away from everything you can't beat Elvan Loft. The views are spectacular and the loft is cosy and well equipped. Would love to return at some point.

Fabulous location, really short walk to Mousehole with pubs and restaurants. But so peaceful. Fabulous views and really comfortable. Linda, the owner is lovely but doesn't in any way intrude. Although this is part of the owners property it feels really separate.

Everything you could need or want was provided; the loft was fabulous; the location was great; the views were brilliant. If you are looking for a cosy retreat, in a typical Cornish location then this is the perfect place.
