From £449 for a long weekend or mid week break.
Perfect for the Mousehole Christmas Lights Roll top bath for two Just for two Art Escapes Coastal Sea views Walking distance to a pub Walking distance to the beach Bathtub for two Open Fires
In a palette of whites and brights with immaculate attention to detail, Gylly is set over three floors and oozes seaside chic. With sea views from the bedroom, this romantic escape has a fresh, contemporary feel with an understated glitziness; think Mousehole meets Monaco wrapped up in a traditional fisherman’s cottage slap bang in the middle of one of the prettiest seaside villages.

The pretty sitting room is on the ground floor and is light and spacious with high ceilings and large sash windows (unusual in Mousehole) complete with window seat. Stripped wooden white painted flooring, a modern white leather sofa combined with more traditional seating make for plenty of places to kick back and relax with the papers or to watch the fire in the cream wood-burning stove.


Downstairs you'll find the kitchen, which is galley sized and has a handmade bespoke wooden kitchen and gleaming granite surfaces. There is an immaculate attention to detail and the use of space is fantastic.Integrated dishwasher, washing-dryer and state of the art oven with halogen hob sits next to the double Belfast sink. A charming breakfast bar has been cleverly built into the alcove between the kitchen and the bathroom. Enjoy your morning coffee listening to the Roberts Revival Radio.


On the first floor you will find a king sized French bed, oversized floor lanterns, high ceilings, built-in hanging wardrobes and cupboards. Double aspect windows overlook rooftops and with peeks at the harbour also guaranteed this bedroom is flooded with natural light whatever the time of year!


A French Grey folding screen separates the roll top bath from the rest of the bedroom. Sitting atop its own slate platform and depending on which end you choose, you can glimpse the sea (or each other) in a bath big enough for two! A separate bathroom and power shower are downstairs next to the kitchen.


Please be aware that parking is not available at Gylly. Traffic permitting it is usually possible to do a 'bag drop' at the bottom of Cherry Garden Street and carry your bags up the hill to the cottage. You will then have to park the car in either of the quayside car parks which are a minutes' walk away. The quayside car parks are a moments' walk away and there is a larger car park at the entrance to the village as well.


Gylly Cottage has WiFi so you can stay connected to the outside world, should you wish to.


This is one of our pet free holiday cottages.
