Mousehole Cottage,Polperro

This is a real gem of a holiday hideaway, full of character with a snug cottage feel, a sunny private garden and off road parking. Situated on the outskirts of the quintessentially Cornish fishing village of Polperro, about 10 minute’s easy stroll from the harbour and beach, Mousehole Cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer. A downstairs bedroom/playroom is an ideal spot for youngsters, where they can watch TV and DVD’s or play games, giving the adults some well-earned rest.  On the top floor a sunny lounge with feature fireplace is a cosy place to relax whatever the season and a few steps up from the kitchen door brings you to the sizeable rear garden. For families that love the coast there are several beaches within walking or driving distance and for those who enjoy the great outdoors, the South West Coastal path runs through Polperro and gives access to the miles of dramatic coastline, with its many secluded coves and stunning views.  Looe offers the attractions of a more traditional seaside town and further afield the famous Eden Project and the National Aquarium in Plymouth are well worth a visit. A small hamper of local produce welcomes you on arrival.
