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.

A lovely cottage very close to the harbour, fitted with everything you could possibly need during a holiday. It was the most spotlessly clean cottage we have ever stayed in, which was really reassuring as we emerge from the latest lockdown. All furnishing and equipment are of a high standard and excellent quality. The only watch out is parking which is very limited in the town.

Mrs D,

Lovely place to stay and has everything you will need to make you comfortable. Highly recommended

Ms W,

We've really enjoyed a lovely calm week here.

Mike & P

The nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! Beautiful, comfortable & well equipped. Just perfect.

Previous Customer

What can we say - perfect cottage, perfect weather AGAIN! Thank you!

Previous Customer

Beautiful house. Very well equipped in this lovely village. We will be back.

Previous Customer

Great cottage and perfect location. We loved The Minack (even in the rain!), walking to Porth Chapel and travelling by train from St Erth to St Ives. Best food of the holiday was in the beach cafe at Kynance Cove & pasties from Philps Bakery in Marazion. Thanks for a perfect week.

The Etheridge family

What a wonderful cottage! Everything we could need was catered for. Mousehole is beautiful, Isles of Scilly was amazing, would definitely recommend a visit!

Previous Customer

A lovely cottage with a gorgeous garden. We loved the beach which is only a short walk away! One of the evenings we went to Fore Street which was absolutely delicious & we highly recommend. Thank You

Neil & A

A fantastic holiday. Superb location and cottage. Scenic coastal walks, perfect cove beach at Porthcurno. We enjoyed visiting National Trust properties and Fishing. Delicious meals at Fore Street, would highly recommend a visit.

The Creedy family

Another lovely week with great bodyboarding at Sennen. The Ben Tuncliffe restaurant is great as is 2 Fore Street. Penzance is worth a look particularly for small children who will love The Admiral Benbow of Treasure Island fame!

The Robertson family

Stunning cottage, the best we have ever stayed in. Our second visit to Mousehole - love it! Thank you.

Previous Customer

Beautifully clean & cosy cottage. Thank you for a lovely holiday home - love the cottage & Mousehole.

Sally & J

Lovely cottage, thoughtfully kitted out and a great location for exploring and walking.

Sally & N

Lovely cottage, very clean and everything you need is here. If you like walking and travelling St Ives is only 30 minutes away. If you want a really friendly welcome go up the hill to The Kings Arms at Paul, well worth the walk, very very friendly & great food.

Harvey & g

Beautiful cottage, really well equipped. Stunning scenery and people friendly. Great fish from Newlyn. Minack Theatre amazing! We will definitely come again.

Superb place. Brilliantly equipped, beautifully finished, spotlessly clean. Mousehole is great, this makes it even better. Would love to return. Hope we can bring the good weather with us again.

Previous Customer

The cottage totally surpassed our expectations- all of the thoughtful details and information. It will be hard to go home.

Previous Customer

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)!

Previous Customer

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, H

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.

Previous Customer

Beautiful cottage, very well provided for and spotlessly clean. The little touches make all the difference- even the weather was kind to us.

Previous Customer

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, B

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.

Previous Customer

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!

Previous Customer

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, B

Lots of pleasant surprises discovering all the thoughtful amenities provided. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay- laughed a lot and could sprawl after great Cornish adventuring.

Previous Customer

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, M

One of the best cottages we have stayed in, certainly the best equipped. It was a joy to come back to.

Previous Customer

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.

Previous Customer

Our second time here - just as lovely if weather a bit patchy - still managed to surf at Sennen - great beach.

Robertson Family, K

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, M

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!
