An utterly charming Grade II Listed three-bedroom cottage in

the Cornish harbourside village of Mousehole has come to the market.

The accommodation has been almost tripled in size by the

addition of a two storey extension. The interior has a tremendous 25′ long open

plan kitchen/family room, a snug sitting room, front and rear courtyard gardens

and is positioned on one of Mousehole’s most sought after pedestrian-only

streets only 50 yards from the stunning harbourside.

Duck Street is one of the most well known and popular

residential roads in the centre of Mousehole, as it opens onto the harbour

front and is lined by a delightful collection of period houses and cottages.

Mousehole is a popular, classic Cornish fishing village set

around a sandy harbour with sturdy walls protecting the beach and active

fishing fleet as well as giving shelter from any wind creating a real suntrap.

The village is made up of beautiful period fishing cottages and houses

scattered around the harbour and the quaint twisting streets behind.

Slightly further to the south west is Lamorna Cove and

valley, famed for its potteries and beyond this is the beautiful Porthcurno

home to the cliff-top Minack Theatre perched above it. Around a mile along the

coastal road to the north are the towns of Newlyn and Penzance which have

combined over the years to form what is regarded as the capital of west

Cornwall. Newlyn is famed for its art galleries, fishing fleet and fish market,

while Penzance has a much broader range of shopping facilities with local and

national retailers in the heart of the town and several supermarkets on the

outskirts.
