The Loft is a sublime luxury cottage by the sea. Quirky, charming and oozing character, the finishing touches in this little place of heaven are out of this world, making it a perfect pad for two and a favourite with those on a honeymoon.
You come through the front door into a space for coats, and straight into the sitting room open plan living area of The Loft. Original stripped floorboards, ceilings and Cornish box sash windows have been preserved as well as window seats and other traditional features of what was once a sail loft. A whole lot of love has been poured into restoring this luxury cottage; Emma Bridgewater crockery and original local artworks, a Bose iPod docking station; oversized duck egg linen armchairs and sofas - a fab range of books, games and DVDs. An open fire place for snuggle-down evenings in Ralph Lauren throws.
Glistening black granite tops an immaculate handmade wooden galley kitchen, Fired Earth tiles, a Dualit toaster, a chrome Coring Pro blender, Kitchen Aid utensils and silver teapots - you get the style? Every mod con has been cleverly integrated or tucked away in the 'Captains' cupboard. Clever!
A cast iron bed, original stripped floorboards, a little fireplace and cleverly hidden storage for your holiday unpacking. As you would expect, it's the little touches that make this bedroom special, the cushions, the mohair rugs, the Roberts Radio, the original artwork.
Fired Earth tiles in serpentine, a separate shower, a claw foot roll-top bath for two and a Lloyd Loom laundry basket (dipped in Farrow & Ball)…. A perfect spot to rest your Cath Kidston wash bag or a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc?!
The quayside car parks are simply a moments' walk away, there is a larger car park at the entrance to the village and there is free parking on the approach to the village as well.
The Loft is fully WiFi ready so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
Two dogs are very welcome. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.
"Absolutely fantastic - we loved it and will be back!! Have used Boutique Retreats previously (also in Mousehole but a different property) and can't fault them - so thank you!!" January 2015
"We wanted to stay somewhere special as we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. The Loft was beyond what we could have hoped for. Lovely quaint location. Beautiful interiors. Really cosy feel. We had a wonderful stay. We loved that we could take our dog and have a little family getaway together. We stay in cottages quite regularly and this was by far the most beautiful. The booking process was extremely simple. We made a request by email prior to our stay and it was dealt with promptly and followed through. Boutique Retreats will be our "go to" next time we are looking for a cottage getaway." June 2015
