This bijou cottage lies tucked away in the heart of Mousehole, one of the most charming villages in Cornwall. Step through the door and you'll find yourself in a haven of cool shades brought to life with some 60's pop art and more than an ironic nod to its Cornish heritage. This is a perfect retreat for a romantic getaway and to explore the far west of Cornwall and is just a minute or so walk from the picturesque harbour which has lots of great places to eat and drink.

The slate floor is set off beautifully against the cool light grey walls and exposed original stone fireplace. A geometric rug in egg-yolk yellow and white make sure your tootsies are cosy-warm as you sit in the two roomy armchairs watching the dancing flames from the wood burner. If you fancy something a little more à deux, there's a cosy grey sofa at the far end of the room, with old record covers from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles providing some quirky artwork. But it's not all homage to the last century - there are lots of touches from an earlier age such as a set of ancient keys and the original wooden mantel over the fireplace. A lot of TLC has gone into the lighting, which ranges from industrial to 70's in design and compliment the room perfectly. Along with the TV and DVD player there is a wireless speaker system designed to link up with your smartphone or tablet so you can listen to your favourite music and radio stations.


Step up from the living room and a lovely kitchen awaits the budding chef at Keigwin. With slate flooring, creamy cabinets, wooden work surfaces and dove-grey tiles the room makes the most of the Cornish light. Complete with all the mod cons including a baby-blue Dualit kettle and toaster and a Smeg coffee machine, the kitchen is really well equipped to help you make something tasty - perhaps cooking something fresh from Newlyn, just a few minutes up the road. A cute white table nestles in the kitchen's centre, perfect to enjoy your culinary creations or maybe to snaffle up something delish from the local deli (well - when in Rome, we say!).


A lovely light and airy bedroom awaits you with original floorboards, a super comfy double bed, sunshine-yellow wallpaper and beautiful copper lighting. There's plenty of storage with a built-in cupboard and an ultra-modern chest of drawers so you can safely tuck your things away. Soft furnishings include beautiful cotton bedding and some great cushions if you want to prop yourself up and have a well-deserved breakfast in bed. For those who need to still check in with work whilst on a getaway, the second small bedroom has a mini office area so you can squirrel yourself and check your emails. There is a daybed in this room as well for flexible accommodation.


The upstairs uber-chic bathroom in dove grey boasts a claw foot roll top bath, roomy drench head shower underfloor heating and heated towel rail. Recesses to hold toiletries have been tiled in stunning hot-pink by the sink and bath and there's some fab art work on the wall. French-style wooden blinds add privacy and can be adjusted to let the light in without revealing too much to the outside world!

Outside space

A rarity in Mousehole, there is a lovely outside space at the rear of the cottage for a spot of al freso dining; simply open the French doors from the kitchen and step outside where you'll find an outdoor sofa plus a bistro table and chairs set. You can also tuck away your bicycles here so they are secure. A neighbouring cottage has access to the back of their property.


There are three options: closest to the cottage are two harbourside car parks, about a 3 minute walk around the harbour - there is a larger car park adjacent to The Old Coastguard hotel towards the edge of the village - finally there is street-side parking on the road into Mousehole about a 15 minute walk from the house.


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


This is one of our pet free cottages.
