The Summer House – Guest Comments

We really enjoyed ourselves. The weather was great so we went out most days, however if it was bad, you could easily find things to do in the house. We met John the owner, such a nice and welcoming guy! You could easily have a BBQ with him! Very polite and always offering help etc… The house itself really suited our needs, really relaxing and we felt like royalty there almost. Very private! Nice little walk into Mousehole which is a great little village, nice food and the best ice cream ever (must have had about 15 between us all). The only regret I have is we didn’t get a chance to say bye to John and his family and thank them personally as the kids were playing up as they didn’t want to leave! Hopefully we were good guests and they’ll allow us back – as we would certainly return time and time again

This was a very well set up property, with an excellent kitchen, good sized lounge area and comfortable bedrooms. Karen and John were very friendly, and left some lovely goodies for our arrival. The pool was a nice sun trap and the garden was very peaceful. Wifi quality was good ( mobile reception is limited.) We would recommend this property highly. The restaurant 2 Fore St down the hill in Mousehole was spectacular, well worth a visit or two.

Beautiful property in a great location. The Summer House gave us everything we needed & more. The house is beautifully kept with added luxuries. It’s in a peaceful location & only a short walk away from the picturesque Mousehole harbour. Very happy with our choice!

Our holiday in Mousehole was absolutely wonderful, we loved every minute and struggled to leave at the end of the week! The house is so spacious, comfortable and tasteful too. John, Karen and family were not only so welcoming and friendly, they left us a delicious home baked cake, flowers, a bottle of Prosecco and fresh bread with Cornish butter – all such lovely gestures. We couldn’t fault the facilities and surroundings, their garden is very beautiful with sea views in the distance, and a whole host of acitivities for the children which really made the holiday. Mousehole is the prettiest Cornish village I’ve ever visited with little winding lanes, such an attractive harbour and a sprinkling of gorgeous shops and galleries. Thank you so much for a perfect holiday, we can’t wait to visit again!

The Summer House was absolutely a wonderful place to stay for our visit to Mousehole, Penzance, St. Ives, and the South Cornwall coast. The two bedrooms are both large with a king bed in each, and a large, private bathroom for each room. The bedroom upstairs also has a lovely alcove with two twin beds for 2 children. The owners, John and Karen, were very helpful, even to the point of increasing the heat to the pool as the air temperature was getting cooler near the end of September! They have a lovely, tranquil piece of property which they were happy to share with us. We could walk into Mousehole for dinner or cook at home in their modern, well appointed kitchen. Thank you so much, John and Karen, for letting us share in your beautiful, quiet retreat!
