A contemporary style cottage, comfortably sleeping 4 people, with incredible sea views.  Beautifully presented with spacious rooms and small private terrace.  The ideal choice for family, couples, walkers, surfers and dog owners.

Carn Du Cottage is located in an elevated position above Mousehole in Cornwall with stunning views over Mounts Bay.  It is next to the magnificent Carn Du House and can be rented with the house or separately, both properties retain a great deal of privacy.  The cottage is set on the hill outside Mousehole but within walking distance to the village. The front facing rooms have panoramic views of the Atlantic from Penzance, Mount’s Bay and the Lizard to the rocky coastline stretching west towards Lamorna and Land’s End.  Mousehole described by Dylan Thomas as “the loveliest village in England” is a traditional, picture postcard Cornish harbour with small sandy beach ideal for little ones at the far end.

Mousehole is made up of winding streets, alleyways, old net lofts, art galleries, gift shops and several very good pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are many sandy beaches nearby, Porthcurno and Sennen to name but a few. The larger historic town of Penzance is 3 miles away with a wider range of shops, supermarkets, leisure centre, outdoor lido, pubs and critically acclaimed restaurants. The Scillonian ferry runs from Penzance to the stunning Scilly Isles.


The front door leads into a large open plan kitchen area; the kitchen is well equipped with single oven, electric hob, dishwasher, washing machine and plenty of cupboard space.  There is a good sized dining area with dining table and chairs for six people and a wood burning stove.  The dining area leads via one step down into a good sized sitting area with large picture window maximising the incredible view.  Comfortable seating for 4 people, TV and DVD player, wifi broadband.  Patio doors lead to a small gravelled, private terrace to the side of the cottage.

Upstairs there is a family bathroom with large bath and shower over, WC and basin.  There are two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a balcony to the front with a table and chairs to enjoy the stunning view.  The main bedroom has emperor bed and cupboard for storage, the second bedroom has a superking bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers.  Both rooms have lovely sea views and beds which can be split into two singles if required.  The cottage can be let with the house, if let separately there is no access to the swimming pool.
