There is nowhere quite like Cornwall when it comes to relaxation and rejuvenation. There is something about the salty air, laid-back pace of life and unique quality of light that makes this peninsular a particularly special holiday destination. Artists have flocked to this intriguing part of Cornwall to try and capture it's beauty since the early nineteenth century when Turner famously paid a visit, so find a quiet spot to erect your easel and rouse your inner creative! If you would rather admire the work of a professional, day trip to St Ives to visit the Tate or Barbara Hepworth's sculpture gardens.

Our Take

Property Owner Jane says

The eclectic styles and different types of buildings in Mousehole makes the village seem timeless. When I first came across the property I loved the proximity to the sea and the harbour, the sound of the waves and the feel of the house. It felt like a place I belonged, it felt like home.
