A luxury seaside cottage, Kittiwake has fabulous views over the harbour towards Mount's Bay & St Michael's Mount, a garden with sea views and its very own summer house - perfect for a sundowner or two!

You can't miss this lovely homestay - walk up the lane to the little terrace and spot the stained glass window sporting a Kittiwake (seagull) hence the name. Through the front door and into the sitting room with a huge open inglenook granite fireplace and a log burning stove. The ceilings, whilst sporting the original beams, are a good two feet higher than most properties in the village. Together with the town house sized sash windows and stunning views of the bay it's the height in the rooms which really gives Kittiwake 'house' stature. A fresh and airy mix of old and new ensures Kittiwake hasn't lost any of its charm. A large, comfy and contemporary sofa is perfect to curl up on. Whether you light the log burner or not, the under floor heating of the black slate floor will make sure your toes never get cold.


Don't panic! The restored original Cornish range is for admiring only. The kitchen is bespoke with granite work surfaces. A Nespresso machine and selection of capsules are provided for your morning caffiene fix. The Dualit kettle and toaster sparkle in the corner, while the extendable breakfast table overlooked by an oversized contemporary clock is placed in just the right position to sit and still enjoy the sea views. Just outside the kitchen you will find a small utility area which houses the washing machine and other housekeeping things while the backdoor leads to the steps up to the garden and summerhouse.


Where else would you find a mix of criss-cross open beams, a fabulous view out over the harbour and beyond, a button-back linen headboard, an original fireplace and a turquoise French six-drawer chest? A very gentle ambience, the king sized bed with its luxurious duvet pillows and quality Egyptian cotton bedding, this room has a very special feel.


Distinctly Victorian in style, this bathroom has a real charm about it. Dual aspect, long windows and folding wooden shutters, the slipper bath and the separate power shower with oversized head. You can relax in the bath and enjoy views to the garden. The soft organic cotton towels and robes really add to the experience while the large cupboard with ample storage and hanging space will ensure there is room for everything. The loo is in a separate room adjacent to the bathroom and next to the bedroom.


To the rear of Kittiwake, steep winding steps lead up to the beautiful terraced garden full of alpine plants, whilst breath-taking views can be found from the beautiful summer house and terrace. Enjoy an evening BBQ, a spot of lunch or just chilling with a coffee and the Sunday papers. Views really are spectacular from your own private vantage point. Please note that the steps in the garden are steep and may not be suitable for anyone with impaired mobility.


Please be aware that parking is not available at Kittiwake. Traffic permitting it is usually possible to do a 'bag drop' at the bottom of Mount Pleasant Terrace and carry your bags up to the cottage. Please note the path that leads up to Kittiwake is steep and may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility. There are three public car parks in Mousehole - two either side of the harbour, and one on the approach into the village.


Kittiwake has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can. There is a TV and DVD player in the living room plus Loewe Bluetooth speaker system designed to link up with your phone or iPad so you can listen to your favourite music and radio stations plus there is a TV and DVD player in the bedroom.


This is one of our pet free holiday cottages.

Baby friendly

Please note, Kittiwake isn't suitable for babies or children.


'Lovely attention to detail, the Christmas decs, candles, the welcome bubbly and card, lovely touch. It's a very well equipped little cottage, and amazing views. Fab woodburner, used it most nights, So good we had to get more logs from the lady down the road, which were excellent. I would be very proud if I owned this cottage, beautifully restored' - December 2017

'Lovely interior, very well looked after, fabulous view' - September 2017

'A beautiful cottage' - August 2017

'We loved the cottage and thought the interior design fitted the waterside & harbour surroundings really effectively. A lot of care had been taken with visual details creating a stunning but comfortable environment. It was a perfect place for experiencing harbour life but was also very close to a range of other experiences such as walking the coastal path, beach life at nearby places such as Marazion and shopping for arts and crafts and food in Mousehole but also nearby Newlyn' - Jul 2017

'Superb accommodation. Everywhere was spotless. Well kitted out. Lovely to sit in bed with a cup of tea in the morning and enjoy the magnificent view. We had coffee every morning in the summerhouse. We just really had a wonderful stay' - May 2017

'We loved the cottage! Everything was very high quality and ensured we had a very relaxing stay. Thank you! ' - March 2017

'The place was absolutely gorgeous. This was our second stay with your company in Mousehole and this was our favourite. We will be back every year, we hope' - January 2017
