This beautifully-appointed open plan ground floor apartment is positioned right in the heart of the quaint harbour town of Mousehole, West Cornwall. Perfectly positioned for a taste of village life, it's just moments from the harbour, and close to local restaurants and pubs, making it an ideal retreat for couples. We are offering a special 10% discount at The Old Fish Cellar for holidays in May.

Glimpse inside this intriguing home, and you could be forgiven for thinking you'd been transported to a trendy New York Loft Apartment as The Old Fish Cellar redefines coastal living.

Maintaining many of the original features, and with a nod to its industrial past, the beguiling use of textures and materials along with the light crisp interiors, offsets this striking palette of blacks and greys.

The living area exudes contemporary comfort, with a 1950s inspired deep seat button back sofa positioned perfectly for warming your toes in-front of the award winning locally designed 'Hot Pod' wood burner. With Blu-Ray player, smart TV and Bluetooth Radio and iPod Dock you won't be short of entertainment.


With no detail overlooked, the fully equipped bespoke kitchen plays backdrop to a display of carefully selected earthenware bowls and glassware, whilst the exquisite copper butler-style sink is the real star of the show! Generous in size, the kitchen is fitted with all the modern day essentials including a stylish Smeg cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, KitchenAid kettle, Dualit toaster and top of the range Delonghi coffee machine. The addition of the reclaimed wooden workbench as dining table, makes this the perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two!

Sleeping and bathing

You'll sleep well in The Old Fish Cellar's sumptuous hand-made, luxury king size bed adorned with superior goose feather and down bedding, and ultra soft Egyptian cotton linens, with the addition of traditional wooden window shutters throughout making early nights and lazy lie-ins all the more tempting.

Just off the bedroom is the en suite. Divided by a great sliding steel Fish Store door, this stylish space, complete with reclaimed geometric tiles, is the ultimate wet room. Add an air-injected rain head shower, underfloor heating and luxurious soft cotton towels and it's the perfect place to unwind after long coastal walks.


Steeped in mystery and myth, this studio formally known as "Who Knows" once functioned as a fish cellar, where mariners would come to process their catch. Now 300 years on, a mix of clever craftsmanship and exquisite interiors has transformed this industrial cellar into a unique Boutique Retreat.

Whilst modest in size, this compact retreat has been well thought out, creating a true sense of space in luxurious surroundings. As one of our most creative and stylish spaces, it's a must visit whether you're looking for a dynamic base to explore Mousehole and West Cornwall from or somewhere to bunker down in the winter for some R&R.


Although The Old Fish Cellar doesn't have its own allocated parking space, you can do a bag drop at the top of the street then parking is available in either of the harbour car parks for £3 a day or £15 for a week, just a few minutes' walk away.


The Old Fish Cellar has WiFi so you can stay connected to the outside world, should you need to.

"There's nothing like starting a holiday by feeling like you've wandered into an interior design magazine shoot. Attentively cared for by the owners, The Fish Cellar is stunningly appointed whilst simultatenously laid back and welcoming… a combination which makes it a perfect bolthole in stumbling distance from the local pub and picturesque harbour. It's pretty rare to have a faultless impression of a stay but our only regret was not booking longer. Can't wait to visit again". August 2015

"The Old Fish Cellar was utterly amazing. If possible it was even more beautiful in person than the pictures. The owners taste down to the toiletries left for us were sublime. Mousehole was a delight - the town was gorgeous and the locals were so welcoming. It was 100% worth the long drive and I would certainly recommend this to everyone. It's the perfect little love shack to just disappear to and fall crazy in love with both the town and indeed the person you are going with! If you are even toying with the idea of booking TOFC - do it right away!" September 2015

"So gorgeous, we wish it were ours! We will definitely return and that is not something we usually say" - November 2015

"It was wonderful, every detail so perfect!" - January 2016

"BEAUTIFUL interior, makes the very best of the space, very high spec. Wonderful stay" - April 2016
