Old Brook Cottage
Mousehole

£400 - £1010 per week
Book

Lose yourself in luxury when you escape to this delightful two-bedroom granite, Cornish cottage, nestled in the pretty hamlet of Paul, on the outskirts of the picturesque harbour village of Mousehole. Meticulously refurbished, it feels like a boutique bolthole with its relaxed style, beautiful décor, and thoughtful little touches. Calming hues and traditional character features combine with artwork and vintage finds, to ensure Old Brook Cottage is in-keeping with its rural surroundings. Transforming from airy summer aesthetic, to snug winter hideaway with ease, as you relax by the cosy woodburner with a good book and a large glass of burgundy. Whatever the occasion, weather, or time of year, Old Brook Cottage is the perfect place.

In a corner of far west Cornwall; a place of unending skies, encompassing wild moorland and beautiful sandy beaches, culminating at the promontory Land's End, Old Brook Cottage is a perfect hideaway for groups of up to four people. Awe-inspiring walks around the South West coast path or nearby moorland, evenings at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall's world famous open-air theatre, and dinner at the local pub, will be the only things to tear you away from the comfort of this luxury stone cottage, with its roaring woodburner and luxurious furnishings.

Old Brook Cottage was absolutely perfect! It was everything you’d expect a cosy little cottage in a hamlet in Cornwall to be... and more! The furnishings were delightful and the cottage itself was absolutely immaculate and so well thought-out and designed. With great wifi and Netflix and Amazon available on all TVs (and there were 3!) We enjoyed having breakfast in the gorgeous little tree-enclosed garden and hearing the bells from the nearby church ringing. In a lovely spot in West Cornwall, just a short walk into Mousehole with easy access to some of West Cornwall’s most beautiful spots including Porthleven, Lamorna Cove and Porthcurno, as well as some fantastic restaurants. We were so sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat!

Holidays in Mousehole

Mousehole is an idyllic village and fishing port with quaint cobbled streets full of bistros and art-galleries. Sit on the harbour and admire views of St Michael’s Mount or take a short drive to nearby Marazion to walk along the golden sands.

Mousehole is a great community with a fantastic atmosphere, and self catering in Mousehole is effortless. Enjoy afternoon tea at the Tremayne Tea Room or sit down for an evening meal at 2 Fore Street, a French bistro-style restaurant on Mousehole harbour front. Finish off your evening with a pint of local ale at the Ship Inn, one of the famous St Austell Brewery establishments. For more info, read our blog post on Eating out in Mousehole.

Visit at Christmas and experience the magical Mousehole Lights display!

Things to do in Mousehole

Mousehole is best when entered on foot, or bus, or bike. Cars are not the way to see Mousehole and best left outside. If you have to bring a car, there’s a big car park on the Penzance side of the village, close to The Old Coastguard Hotel.

Christmas lights

Mousehole has celebrated Christmas with beautiful lights for 40 years! The village is a winter wonderland in the dark nights and grey seas of winter. Many villages have light shows today but Mousehole is special. Holiday cottages overlooking the harbour always enjoy an extra special Cornish Christmas. Read more on our blog about Mousehole lights.

Walks around Mousehole

For those who are not so content with staying in their holiday homes, the walks around Mousehole are a joy all year round.  There are some fabulous circular walks but we think there's something particularly satisfying about catching a bus from Mousehole and walking back in (especially if your walk exits the village in a north of westerly direction; you'll soon discover the town is nestled at the bottom of a very steep hill!)  Read our blog on Mousehole Walks.

Mousehole Sea Salts & Sail Festival

Taking place every two years, this maritime festival celebrates Mousehole's fishing heritage with traditional sailing boat races and many other activities and entertainment for the whole family. 2014 was the festival's tenth biennial festival, taking place on the 11th, 12th & 13th July.  Read our blog post from the event here: Sea Salts and Sail Festival.

A brief history of Mousehole

Today Mousehole is beautiful and welcoming holiday destination This popular holiday destination has seen more than its fair share of hardtimes tragedy over the years.

The Quay was built in 1392, holding the harbour like a pair of protective arms. Fishing was always important to Mousehole. These days there are fewer boats fishing from the village but there is an active fishing fleet operating out of nearby Newlyn, a town worth a visit on its own account. Read more about the History of Mousehole on our blog.

Places to visit near Mousehole

Venture near or far, with NewlynPorthcurno and Marazion all within a short drive or the cobbled streets of St Ives and the surfing beach of Sennen a little further away. Visit Penzance town to do some light shopping or head to Jubilee Pool to cool down after a long day of exploring. Wherever you want to go, our Mousehole self catering cottages make an ideal base from which to explore the towns and villages of West Cornwall.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

Every year, the people of Mousehole celebrate the bravery of Tom Bawcock. Years ago, when the boats couldn't get out in the storms, the villages had no fish to eat. Tom dared to take his boat out and returned with enough fish to make a Star Gazey fish pie for the whole village.

Very pleasant and comfortable stay at Old Brook Cottage for two of us for a week. Location makes it very easy to walk or drive to various nearby places of interest.

Old Brook Cottage is a gorgeous little gem, super comfortable and stylish. Everything felt new and luxurious. Beautifully located for all sorts of Cornwall fun. Highly recommended.

Brook cottage is perfectly located a short walk from either quiet, picturesque Mousehole or more bustling Newlyn. Paul itself has a local pub and is a charming small village. The cottage was immaculately presented, with brand new everything, a hot and powerful shower, well-equipped kitchen and enough space downstairs for four. The front garden is also very pretty with lovely flowers, perfect for sitting outside for drinks or dinner. Parking is up the road slightly away from the property, but as the road is super quiet it's easy to pack/unpack in front of the house before parking. When we arrived the radiators and underfloor heating was on, we ended up turning off as it was summer but I got the sense the cottage would be incredibly cosy in winter - there's also a wood burner. Internet was excellent (possibly too excellent if you're planning to switch off!) and there were flat-screen TVs in almost every room. We had a brilliant stay and look forward to coming again!
