The living area is light and tastefully decorated with comfy sofas, TV, beautiful large woodburner and those spectacular views across Mount's Bay through another huge bay window.

A lovely house, very well localed and with an amazing view!!!

Mrs B,

We enjoyed our stay at The Lifeboat House. The location in this part of Cornwall was perfect for us to enjoy the most dramatic parts of the SW Coast-Path and to then enjoy the views of Mounts Bay when returning back to base.

Mr Robert W,

We’ve stayed in many properties over the years and this was by far the best. The property was very clean and well equipped. We’d stayed over new year and the property was always warm. We liked it so much we rebooked on the 2nd day of our stay.

Mrs Julie D,

Just brilliant

Mrs Kristine N,

Lovely property, homely and welcoming. Fantastic views. Parking in harbour car park not a problem. Pub five minute walk with good food, and 2 Fore Street restaurant a must visit for foodies, but need to book.

Mr Nigel D,

We had a wonderful stay in The Lifeboat House. The view was breathtaking! It has all the thoughtful touches to make sure you feel at home. The scones on arrival were very much appreciated too! The house is in a super location in Mousehole, convenient for the harbour and local amenities - Mrs J
