You really couldn't be nearer to the water! One step out of Berlewen (which means 'Venus' in Cornish) and you're in the heart of lively Mousehole. One step in and you fall into the calming embrace of this fab fisherman's cottage. Less is more here - the owners have realised that the incredible view is the star of the show here so have chosen a subtle luxurious style within the property.

The main living space stretches the whole width of the house with two large sash windows with picture-perfect views of the harbour. As you walk through the front door, you'll find a plush velvet sofa, huge fur beanbag chair, throws and a cosy wood burner to the left. The window seat has cute hessian cushions, and the room is well stocked with wood for cold nights. Unusual lighting throughout provide focal points within the room. On the right, an eye-catching dining table with benches stretch across the room, and a small enclave thoughtfully houses a Dualit toaster, so you don't even have to go into the kitchen to make toast for your breakfast!


A stone step leads you to the back of the house which is home to the kitchen, where the main feature is the original wrought-iron Cornish range, beautifully preserved. The kitchen itself is stylishly monochrome, with a 50's style Gorenje fridge freezer, five ring stove, Victorian sink, Cornish black slate worktops and stunning rectangular tiles. Another fab feature of the kitchen is the industrial chains which support rough wooden shelves well stocked with white china and glasses. An original butcher's block completes the room.


Plush thick carpets lead you up the stairs where you'll find two double rooms, one of which is ensuite, and the children's room. The two double rooms have harbour views and window seats, perfect for watching the world go by with a morning cup of coffee. A unique feature of all the front windows of this property is that they have 'upside down' blinds, meaning they roll from the bottom up - this means you can still have the views with a little more privacy! The children's room houses a day bed and a sky light lets in plenty of natural daylight. It has a large T.V for when a bit of downtime is needed.


The upstairs bathroom will take you back to your school days as the owners have cleverly used old desks as shelving for the two sinks - complete with graffiti! The sinks are at two levels - the lower one thoughtfully positioned for little ones. Unique reclaimed tiles make the flooring very eye-catching. The master bedroom has a small shower room with an 'amoosing' theme - check out the tiled cow portrait! Oh, and just in case you come back a bit sandy from the beach, there's an outside shower in the cobbled courtyard.


Berlewen is fully WiFi ready so if you need to stay in contact with the outside world you can.


This is one of our pet-free properties.

In the Area

Lying between Penzance and Land's End, Mousehole is properly the most iconic fishing village in Cornwall. Huddling the coastline and protected by Raginnis Hill, it's also one of the oldest with parts of the harbour wall dating back to the twelfth century. Today the village maintains its olde-worlde charm, with narrow cobbled streets, slate roofs, whitewashed cottages and brightly coloured paint work. It's perfect for foodies with a good selection of restaurants, cafés and delis, and is of course just a hop, skip and a jump to the world-famous fishing village of Newlyn! The horseshoe beach is nicely protected by harbour walls which almost meet - literally the 'mouse hole' - creating a perfect spot for soaking up the Cornish sun - it's a real sun trap! There's plenty going on throughout the year here, but perhaps the most famous are the harbour lights at Christmas when hundreds of people come to see the spectacular display.
