Just 100 metres from Mousehole harbour is Clerical Cottage: a gorgeous traditional stone cottage that has been sympathetically restored into this charming holiday home. The property oozes character with its granite stone walls, oil-fired Rayburn AGA and woodburning stove, it is a true Cornish retreat. Alfresco dining can be enjoyed on the large decked area to the rear of the cottage, the perfect spot for relaxing after a day exploring the West coast.

The picturesque harbour of Mousehole is just a stones throw from the cottage, and there are a good selection of places to eat and drink in the village. The south west coastal path in this area of Cornwall offers dramatic scenery with rugged cliffs and historical landmarks. For beach lovers, head West to Porthcurno where you’ll find stunning turquoise waters and fine white sand – it is described by many as simply paradise. Perched on the cliffs above Porthcurno is the Minack theatre; an open aired theatre which offers an entertaining afternoon for the whole family.

Would definitely recommend Clerical Cottage - well equipped and comfortable.Mr Arthur Bagg - 17th September 2018
We so enjoyed our stay in the beautiful and very well-equipped Clerical Cottage! Thank you so much for letting it to us for just a few nights. Far too short. We really enjoyed reconnecting to our Cornwall roots. We will be back!Gretchen, Steven and family, McLean, Virginia USA
We did enjoy our stay in your cottage and in Mousehole. Thanks for providing everything we needed to relax. We would definitely recommend this place.Faz
What a beautiful cottage! Wish we could live here. We used Mousehole as a base for exploring the whole of this end of Cornwall so were out everyday, but really looked forward to returning to our home from home every evening. Everything you need is supplied, comfy beds, lovely bed linen, towels, etc. Kitchen very well equipped. Would definitely recommend this cottage to others.Sue, Steve, Carol and Kevin

Had a wonderful stay in your very well-equipped cottage. Location absolutely ideal. The weather has been wonderful too. Will be coming back to Clerical Cottage again.Frank, Nottingham
A unique and lovely location, we thoroughly enjoyed every day we were here.Sue
Had an enjoyable week's stay in your lovely cottage and lovely village (our 2nd visit to Mousehole). The weather has been good and our granddaughter had a lovely time on the beaches all around. Thank you.Linda, Peter and family, Chelmsford/Ely
Modern and well-equipped. The whole place was decorated with a nautical touch. The three bedrooms were beautifully appointed with comfortable beds. The kitchen was spacious with a dining area and had a rustic feel. The decked patio proved a real sun trap! We enjoyed the cottage very much and found our stay very comfortable indeed.Caroline and family, Walton-on-Thames
Second stay, just as lovely as last year. We will be booking again for next year. Wonderful rest and meals out.Ann and Roy, Barry and Betty
Really enjoyed our stay! We are Mousehole regulars and this has been the best accommodation to date. The outdoor space is a real treat, kitchen/diner ample Anthony
A lovely cottage, thoughtfully arranged. We always come to Mousehole thinking that we've done everything in the area and always find something new.Linda, Coventry
