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, with 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 and on the landing.
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.

“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
