Located in the heart of the quintessential Cornish seaside village of Mousehole, Azure is a beautifully restored former fisherman's cottage turned retreat just steps from the beach and harbour. Retaining all its original features and charm - think stone walls, woodburning stove and polished wooden floors - combined with all the modern luxuries you would expect, this makes an ideal home stay for those looking to explore the far west of Cornwall and is ideal for both families and couples alike.


The snug living space is just perfect - cool in the summer with thick stone walls and shutters on the window, it's cosy in the winter with a large wood burning stove, comfy velvet sofa and two occasional chairs for curling up on. There's a Smart TV and Blu Ray for evenings in, plus a digital radio with Bluetooth for music fans - a lovely space in which to totally unwind.


The cute kitchen is simply divine with dark blue cupboards, oak worktops and all the appliances you'll need to rustle up meals and snacks for your loved ones, including an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Smeg table top appliances plus a washing machine. Next door is the dining area with a table and chairs to seat four comfortably, with amazing artwork as a focus point.


There are two bedrooms - the master bedroom is oh-so-pretty in shades of dusty pink, with a king size bed, whilst the second bedroom in shades of green and blue has a zip-and-link meaning it can be twin beds or another king size double for flexible sleeping. Both rooms have plenty of handing and storage space, plus Smart TVs.


The family bathroom has a deep, luxurious bath with overhead luxurious digitally-operated shower plus a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy after a long soak or a wake-me-up shower. There is also an additional cloakroom downstairs.

Outdoor space

There's a cute, secluded courtyard garden complete with dining table and chairs for a spot of alfresco dining basking in the summer sunshine. There's also a handy outdoor shower to wash off wetsuits and sandy toes.


Mousehole wasn't built with cars in mind, but there are three public car parks - one on the approach into the village and one either side of the harbour- and laybys on the approach into the village.


There is a high chair and travel cot at Azure available on request - please bring your own bedding for the cot.


Azure is one of our pet free properties.


Azure has Superfast Fibre broadband so should you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.

Azure is the perfect base from which to explore the stunning far west of Cornwall. Mousehole itself is a lovely little village with some fabulous places to eat including The Old Coastguard and 2 Fore Street. There's a great delicatessen called the Hole Food Deli (perfect for luxurious extras), plus Rock Pool Café is great for coffee and cake or afternoon tea as well as a host of others to explore. Pop into your car and head west, exploring the pretty coves of Lamorna and Porthcurno (also home to the Minack Theatre) towards Land's End and Sennen, a fab little village with an epic beach and a hot spot for surfers. Further around you'll find iconic St Ives with its golden sandy beaches, the Tate and lots of shops and places to eat. Back on the south coast check out Newlyn - one of the oldest continual fishing harbours in the UK - and pick up some fresh fish for dinner. Make sure to visit historic Chapel Street in Penzance as well as Jubilee Pool. Further along, there's magical St Michael's Mount and Marazion, Praa Sands (an amazing beach), Porthleven (home to lots of brilliant restaurants) and the Lizard, the most southerly point in the UK and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This charming seaside cottage with seriously gorgeous interiors is a moments' walk from the sea and harbour - a perfect Cornish getaway.

Join Lara from the BR Team on a family adventure to Gwella, our characterful cottage tucked away in the quintessential Cornish fishing village of Mousehole...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Azure:

Mousehole was an outstanding location for our visit to Cornwall. I am also happy to be able to say that Azure was not misrepresented in its presentation on the Boutique Retreats website. It was tastefully furnished, well appointed, and clean.

Everything we needed and more.

We cannot wait to come back! Just beautiful.

The location of the cottage couldn’t be better, interior has been very carefully thought out and we had everything we needed. Great shower, powerful & loads of hot water! Also the little courtyard garden is quite a sun trap which was great as we actually had sun!! Loved Mousehole, great restaurant, cafe & deli within two minutes walk which we made good use of.

Lovely cottage in a great location, really well organised with everything you need for the family.

The cottage is gorgeous and the photos are exactly what you will find. Fitted out to a very high standard. Excellent cottage for a couple or family with small children. The location is 5*.

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish - a home away from home! Stunning kitchen and beautiful bedrooms. It was the perfect bolthole to recharge at... and the fireworks on the harbour on Bonfire night were fabulous!

Completely gorgeous. A stylish, cosy bolthole in the prime location of Mousehole’s enchanting harbour. 2 doors from the pub, 4 doors from a wonderful restaurant and a stone’s throw from the sea.

'The cottage is lovely. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated. The back yard is a real suntrap for breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay in Mousehole which is a pretty little fishing village' - September 2020

'Great location and cottage' - July 2020

'Stunning - a perfect home from home.' - January 2019

'The cottage was spotless and tasteful. Location was fantastic - steps away from the pub, cafes etc. And a bus stopped outside the pub to take us to Newlyn and back - an unexpected bonus! We will definitely return to this cottage.' - November 2018
