Retaining so much of the original character, Keigwin Manor, the oldest house in Mousehole, is located deep in the heart of this quintessential village. This historic two-storey house offers you outside space and four comfortable bedrooms (sleeping six). Your location is so special that with a hop, skip and a jump out of the front door you can be at the harbourside enjoying the sandy beach and bustle of Mousehole's glorious harbour and watching the fishing boats bobbing away.
Walk under the iconic entrance which dates back to the Jacobean era and enter into the large open hallway. Here you will find a large kitchen which is fabulous and equipped with all you need to cook up a feast. Also on this floor you have a separate dining-room, shower-room and a twin bedroom. Upstairs the sitting-area centres around squishy velvet sofas and a comfy armchair. The main bedroom has the 'wow' factor boasting beams a show-stopping super-king size bed. Located at the far end of the house, via a little stepped landing, you also have two single bedrooms along with a family bathroom.
A rarity in Mousehole, there is a lovely outside space at the rear of the house for a spot of al fresco dining; simply open the stable-door from the kitchen and step outside where you will find an outdoor picnic table, perfect for a yummy afternoon tea (a neighbouring cottage also has access to the back of their property from this outside area).
Around this area there are many wonderful walks from Mousehole. The coastal path to Lamorna is one of the prettiest you will find anywhere in Cornwall, or for a less energetic walk a meander to Newlyn to buy fresh fish from the numerous shops there. There is also a good bus service from the village which can help you explore the area as well. The open top bus is a fun experience from Newlyn taking you all around the peninsula.
If you can try and take in a trip to the world famous Minack Theatre, dramatically perched on the cliffs above Porthcurno., it's well worth a visit and even more magical if you can see a production or concert whilst there, but don't forget to take a warm snuggly blanket as it can get very chilly. Art lovers should visit the Newlyn Art Gallery, and of course the Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden both in St Ives. St Ives is best reached by train as the scenery along the way is breathtaking.
Foodies have an abundance of choice in Mousehole. A short stroll away from Keigwin Manor is 2 Fore Street and the restaurant in The Old Coastguard hotel (which overlooks the bay) is truly stunning. The Ship Inn (just around the corner) is the traditional Cornish village pub. If you don't fancy cooking breakfast then head over to Hole Foods Deli overlooking the harbour, their traditional Cornish breakfast is the best around. If you fancy treating yourself to a very special cream tea head over to the the Rock Pool cafe, located just before The Old Coastguard hotel, but don't forget jam first, you are in Cornwall after all.
Mousehole is Cornwall at its absolute best and is fast becoming one of its most popular destinations.
