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.

A touch of 60's chic in a glorious Cornish seaside cottage. This little stunner of a retreat is super romantic and a perfect love nest for two with a sumptuous roll-top bath and wood-burner for cosy evenings in plus a lovely courtyard to enjoy al fresco dining.

A perfect property to retreat and relax. The position in Mousehole is perfect. The quality of the interior is excellent. Enjoy! Barrie & Maureen Goulding

We really enjoyed our stay at Keigwin Cottage, it was a perfect little retreat in beautiful Mousehole, everything we needed was there, could not fault it.

Lovely contemporary styled cottage set in picturesque village. Please be mindful parking is challenging and easy to park just outside the village and a short walk in. Welcome Prosecco much appreciated, along with other welcome pack. Enjoyed my Cornish break very much, would recommend.

Beautiful cottage Everything you need for a relaxing break Welcome pack was lovely including prossecco One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in Thank you

Wonderful stay. Great relaxing break. Cottage was wonderful. The welcome Prosecco and hamper of treats was a lovely touch

Just the place for our 30th Wedding Anniversary retreat! Great location for exploring and being by the water. Restful and romantic.

Beautiful cottage, super clean, wonderful location!

Great location, lovely cottage, perfect bolt hole in a gorgeous village

Great location, perfectly firm cottage, modern but with lots of character and quirky features-we loved it and were sad to leave.

Fantastic space minutes from the beach. Mousehole was a lovely place to spend the week close to many beautiful beaches.

Beautiful cottage with tasteful interior . All essentials at hand plus more . Whole of cottage has been decorated beautifully. The bedroom was so comfy . What a warm happy home with a totally relaxing atmosphere. Bubbles chilling in the fridge was particularly welcoming. Huge thanks to the owners for letting us stay in their home and a huge thanks to Claire and team for ensuring the cottage was spotless on our arrival

Absolutely beautiful cottage. We had the best week and the cottage is in the most PERFECT area, with perfect places to eat and a lovely pub. We were worried about the parking but was literally a 2 minute walk from cottage, very easy, and only £3 a day! The bottle of Prosecco was a lovely touch and so was the wood for the fire. Mousehole is absolutely stunning, pictures don’t do it justice!

We ate in pretty much all the restaurants and pub and we’re all delicious.

The perfect place to celebrate my birthday and will definitely be back!

We loved every second of our stay, the interior was lovely and the log fire a perfect touch for those chilly autumn evenings! Would deff come again,it was perfect in every way!

We absolutely loved our stay at Keigwins Cottage and would definitely stay again. Perfect location and extremely clean. Had everything we could possibly need for a stay and perfect to hide away in when the weather wasn't great! Fab find!

Beautiful Cottage, Beautiful Location, a great place to unwind from the working life..!

Keigwin cottage is the perfect retreat right in the centre of Mousehole. Boutique Retreats had provided us with so much information on beaches, trips and restaurants so we immediately settled in and felt like locals! It is perfectly placed for exploring the area and it was lovely to return to our cosy cottage at the end of the day and completely relax.

'Keigwin Cottage was a delight! We had the most relaxing and chilled week's holiday. The cottage is in a fantastic position, literally a minute from the harbour and two minutes from the pub! It was very cosy and warm at night when the wood stove was burning and even just with the radiator switched on. The underfloor heating in the lovely bathroom was a nice touch too. Our concern about parking the car was not an issue as we used to park the car overnight at the side of the road in the free parking at the entrance to the village at the top of the hill. We always managed to find a spot and the walk was only 15 mins or so and the views at the top were spectacular. A perfect little bolthole, quiet and cosy yet right at the heart of the harbour village. Loved it and would definitely come back' - September 2020

'Excellent property . Really enjoyed our weekend break would definitely book again.' - April 2019

'The cottage is perfect - a cosy, romantic stay for two was what we were looking for and it made the ideal honeymoon retreat with lots to do nearby and good food and drinks within walking distance. We loved it!' - November 2017

'It was an absolutely beautiful place, exactly what we were after' - October 2017
