This crisp, clean and coastal cottage has everything you could possibly want from a Cornish retreat.  The interior has a quintessential fishing village feel to it, yet is modern, luxurious and fresh and so inviting it will be difficult to leave! Mousehole harbour is just a minutes walk away and you have views of the sea from the cottage.  The cottage is well equipped with a large smart TV, a log burner for cosy evenings in and secluded south facing deck to enjoy meals al fresco.

Popular for retaining its original character, charm and beauty, Mousehole is a tiny fishing village in West Cornwall, 3 miles west of Penzance. Its picturesque harbour is surrounded by narrow streets and yellow lichened houses, which huddle together creating a stunning location. Along the harbour road you’ll find galleries, gift shops and restaurants and in the harbour itself is a safe sandy beach at low tide popular with families.

Excellent mix of charm, evidence of family life, and use of space. Obvious attention to detail and thought for any guests’ comfort, relaxation or activities like cooking. We have stayed in many properties in Mousehole, Newlyn and St.Ives. Seahorse Cottage is the best so far by a long shot.Mrs L Care - 17th September 2018

Seahorse Cottage has proved to be the perfect home from home and our week based around beautiful Mousehole has been fantastic. Thank you so much for providing everything we could want - and more. We hope to be back.Kettlewell Cottage, Manchester
Our second stay in this beautiful, well equipped super cottage. Totally clean and very comfortable. Mixed weather this week but spent sunny days at Sennen Cove & Porthcurno. We will return again, thanks.The Duffills, North Yorkshire
Lovely cottage - beautifully converted, clean & comfortable - thanks for thinking of everything! Eating out - enjoyed the Ship Inn best - try the crab salad! Jessie's for huge nice pasties. A bit further afield - Mackeral Sky Seafood bar in Newlyn - no need to book (in fact you can't) - for delicious fish.The Herrmanns, Manchester
Seahorse Cottage is fabulous- better than we ever imagined. We felt really at home, so pretty and comfortable- a truly magical place. Best cottage ever can't wait to return.Ulpiani Family, Birmingham
One of the best cottages we have stayed in, certainly the best equipped. It was a joy to come back to.Wendy & Richard Shires, Reading
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage- a true home away from home. We have all felt so comfortable and relaxed and have made good use of all your thoughtful amenities.David, Debbie & Jasmine, Cottingham
What can we say - perfect cottage, perfect weather AGAIN! Thank you!Terry & Mary Martin, Oxon

Thank you for making Seahorse more than just a holiday let. Great attention to detail and spotlessly clean.Diane & Chris Crosby, Shrewsbury
Lots of pleasant surprises discovering all the thoughtful amenities provided. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay- laughed a lot and could sprawl after great Cornish adventuring.Dave & Barbara, Norfolk
Seahorse cottage was absolutely beautiful ! A sheer delight to stay in we all felt at home. It was faultless! Decor was so lovely. We felt very sad living it this morning and on such a glorious day. Best cottage we have ever stayed at in Mousehole! A big thank you and we will definitely recommend it and return again!Julia Ulpiani
It is not often the holiday let you view online is even better than the marketing pictures but that is the case with Seahorse Cottage - we booked it because the pictures made it look so lovely - but when we arrived it was even better. Beautifully kept with gorgeous nautical theme throughout. We must applaud the cleanliness, absolutely perfectly clean. Must also applaud the thoughtfulness for guests, every detail you can think of has been thought of. We could have packed less as apart from your clothes and some fresh food you don't need anything! I usually travel to self catering houses with my spice rack and cooking bits and pieces as we love to cook and I did this time along with the usuals - tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets, olive oil, salt and pepper etc - but the cupboards were stocked with all of these things (not to mention a scones upon arrival!) The house even had washing tablets if you need to do a wash while away. The other most important thing to us was how family friendly the house was. The attention to detail was very appreciated. When we arrived we thought it was going to be very difficult to watch our little 17 month old boy 100% of the time to ensure he didn't fall down the quite steep steps but under the stairs there were pressure fix stair gates that you can just put up if you need them. Not to mention a toy box full of toys, beach toys for outside, books and dvds for all ages. We brought along some books and toys for our little one but we didn't need to. There is even a buggy for you to use should you need that. The details didn't go unnoticed and made all the difference - White Company bed linen, Denby crockery, good quality cooking pans and utensils. All very appreciated! The location of the cottage is so quiet (apart from the seagulls!) It is just a 2 min walk to the harbour and all the little tearooms. We thought Mousehole was a beautiful little village and would definitely go back again. The harbour is gorgeous and very quaint. Thank you to the owners of Seahorse cottage for making our stay so comfortable and homely!The Halls, Bracknell
Here we feel like we are in our own home. Everything you need is here and in the village people are lovely.The Regourd family, Paris
The cottage totally surpassed our expectations- all of the thoughtful details and information. It will be hard to go home.Joel
Hard to imagine a more perfect and perfectly outfitted cottage. Thank you for every detail including the guides, maps, restaurant info, flowers and coffee.The Paynes, Boston USA
Beautiful cottage in a delightful setting. A perfect home from home. Thank you.Linda, Olivia, Amelia, Joseph and Jack, Northamptonshire
A perfect place to spend Christmas with our son. You have thought of everything.Brendan, Linda and Kerrian, Nizas, France
A wonderful cottage which made for a lovely comfortable relaxing holiday. Thank you.Tim, Claire
We've had a fantastic holiday in Mousehole. What a beautiful place! Seahorse Cottage was beyond our expectations, absolutely lovely and full of everything you need for a comfy stay, plus a few thoughtful touches on top! Good food at 2 Fore Street, but our dining out highlight was The Godolphin Arms at Marazion. Great food and one of the best views you will find. Thanks very much, we plan to return!! (PS Cornish Seal Sanctuary was brill)!Paul, Sally, Evie and Lucie Williams, Brindley Heath, Staffs
What a lovely cottage! We've had a fab holiday and don't want to leave. Cottage very child friendly, great not to have to bring anything as it's all here. Thank you!!!The Blanchards, Huddersfield
Booked this cottage on the recommendation of our neighbours and they were right. It's the best cottage we've stayed in - excellent location, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Ate at Ship Inn, Kings Arms, Coldstreamers & The White Hart, Ludgvan, where we won the pub quiz! Wonderful week.Eileen & Paul Dean, Hampshire
Had a great week, lovely house. Kids loved Paradise Park, good to go and see when weather is poor. 2 Fore Street great food and good kids menu. Our 2nd time in Mousehole. Love it!Coltey Family, North Yorkshire
Beautiful cottage, very well provided for and spotlessly clean. The little touches make all the difference- even the weather was kind to us.Terry & Mary Martin, Wantage
A very beautiful cottage in a beautiful place. You've thought of everything- better equipped than our own home.The Johnsons, Egerton
2nd visit to Mousehole but 1st time at Seahorse Cottage - absolutely stunning - loved the sun terrace and the accommodation was 1st class. Enjoyed a wonderful week here. Absolutely spotless. Enjoyed 2 Fore Street and fish & chips round the corner, Porthcurno beach was stunning and great for body boarding. St Ives will worth a trip.The Hudsons, East Sussex
A beautiful cottage, the best we have ever stayed in. Attention to detail and home comforts very much appreciated 5 star. PS cleaners are amazing.The Bentleys West Sussex
