Kick back and enjoy the stunning views from Gwylan House, a unique seaside retreat perfectly positioned to enjoy the delights of Mousehole. This charming granite cottage nestles on a quiet footpath, off the tourist track and yet literally a few steps from the seashore and a couple of minute’s walk to Mousehole’s pub, restaurants and galleries. Enjoy a coffee in bed as you watch the little harbour slowly come to life each morning, or listen to the gentle lapping of the tide as you drift off to sleep at night.
This Grade II listed former fisherman’s cottage has been lovingly extended to offer spacious accommodation. Tastefully decorated in relaxing, tranquil tones, it combines traditional character with modern home comforts, including superfast broadband. Accommodation comprises a very well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Miele appliances and dining table. This leads to a utility room with hanging/drying space, a shower, and a separate wc. The lounge has comfy seating, a Smart TV and enjoys views overlooking the harbour. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a king and a double room to the front of the property, both with Hypnos mattresses and sea and harbour views, and up a further few steps to the rear of the property is a single bedroom. This room has an additional pull-out bed suitable for an extra child. The family bathroom is on the first floor with shower over bath. There is an abundance of storage space, with built-in cupboards in all the bedrooms.
Step outside the front door, and take a stroll around the winding lanes of Mousehole, a quintessentially Cornish fishing village with a popular pub, restaurants, cafes and galleries. Soak up the sun on the safe little sandy beach, or take a boat tour from the harbour and view the rugged coastline from the sea. If you can drag yourself away from Mousehole, Gwylan House is an ideal base for exploring West Cornwall. There are magnificent coastal walks on your doorstep, including to lovely Lamorna Cove and onward to the stunning beach at Porthcurno and the spectacular Minack Theatre. For those less active days, the bus stop is a couple of minute’s walk away - take a bus to Penzance, or jump off at Newlyn and catch a film at the popular Newlyn Filmhouse. Penzance, about 3 miles from Mousehole, offers rail and bus links to the rest of Cornwall and beyond.
Relax at Gwylan and watch the Cornish sun setting over the sea, or take a glass of wine down to the water’s edge and watch the world go by. Simply enjoy.

Gwylan House is a very clean & comfortable cottage with good facilities and a great location on Mousehole harbour. We had a good experience with Cornish Horizons as they pre-empted my questions and provided good and timely information for our stay. A few things to note about Mousehole itself - be prepared for very very tight streets that are not one-way so driving requires some skill. The parking is limited and easiest access to this property is from the North Quay car park. Parking costs £3 per 24 hours and the parking machine only accepts cash. Change is available from the kiosk next to the machine but is only open during the day. The village pub is closed at present (only indoor seating) and there are just a few cafes/restaurants/take-aways which are expensive - although good ! The nearest pub with outdoor searing is The Kings Arms in Paul which is a 15 minute (uphill) walk away. Groceries & other general goods are available from the newsagent but this is not open late. Nearest major supermarkets are in Penzance. Mr Dhaliwal - 19th April 2021
What an utterly wonderful cottage. We've just got back from spending our honeymoon at Gwylan House and it couldn't have been more perfect. The cottage has a wonderful charm about it making it feel properly home from home. Fully equipped with everything you might possibly need for your stay it was simply magical. With lovely personal touches from the owners I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone! We are desperately missing that view from the master bedroom to wake up to!Catherine - 8th January 2021
Thank you for a lovely holiday home from home. Everything was perfect. The house is beautiful and we have never stayed anywhere so clean.Mr & Mrs Sutton - 28th September 2020
Wow what a wonderful cottage. We loved it on arrival and cannot fault how well stocked it is with all the equipment and great storage - the best thought out holiday cottage we have stayed in. Fresh and clean too! Mousehole is magical and we had a wonderful New Year here. The local shops and people are lovely. Old town Penzance and The Turks Head pub worth a visit. St Michael's Mounta must as is Fore Street Restaurant & The Ship pub. All the galleries around here are wonderful too.Ian, Jacky & Jess - 2nd January 2020
We've had an absolutely wonderful time again in Gwylan House in the beautiful Mousehole. The cottage is fabulous and had everything we need.

It is a lovely house and I have loved having a double bed for the first time! It is a really nice kitchen and I really enjoyed seeing the beach every time I woke up. Thank you!Pippa & Emily - 26th July 2019

We've had a lovely holiday. Wonderful house, all you could need and more. Very well-situated. Mousehole is wonderful. Would love to come again.Mr and Mrs Johnson - 24th May 2019

I loved staying in the house with the fantastic view and cosy feeling! I have had an amazing week and am very sad to go. Thank you for letting us stay here! The Tribes family - 6th April 2018
We really like the house and we love the view! The beds are really comfortable and I would like to stay here again. We all had an amazing time and we are really sad to leave.The Tribes family - 6th April 2018
The cottage was very well located in the centre of Mousehole with all the amenities of the village easily accessible. It was very well equipped with everything we needed particularly the kitchen. The cottage was very warm and cosy which was perfect for a November stay. It was very clean and well presented. The beds were comfortable with good quality linen. With 2 good sized bedrooms and a further single it would be well suited to a family.Andrew - 17th November 2017
