About this Property

A rare and wonderful find in the middle of Mousehole. Away from cars and holiday makers and with a list of features you would not normally find in a property in the village. 



Mousehole is a famous, picturesque fishing village, with a harbour and beach, on the western side of Mounts Bay.  In the village is a school, Chapel and a good range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.  There is a Church and another popular pub in the neighbouring village of Paul at the top of the hill.  Around the coast road is the neighbouring fishing port of Newlyn with a larger selection of shops including a supermarket, pharmacy, butchers and bakers.  A mile further on from Newlyn is the major town of Penzance with a comprehensive range of commercial, educational and leisure facilities as well as a rail link to London Paddington.
