But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about The Fish Store below:

A memorable and magical holiday enjoying family meals at that spectacular table with the most wonderful views. Our young boys loved the wondrous rockpool discoveries, my elder nieces were equally delighted! Our anniversary meal superbly provided by Franck Gautherot - a great chef who came to The Fish Store and treated us to his culinary delights, with no washing up! A kitchen well stocked with serving dishes and crockery; perfectly suited for our family meals. Table tennis tournaments in the evening, plenty of showers to clean up sandy children... Happy, happy days!

The Fish Store is above and beyond any home you could wish for. It´s the first day of our holiday and has already captured our hearts. The perfect retreat from London and home away from home to share special moments with friends and family. We all had such a magical time here. The Fish Store is a sanctuary in one of the most beautiful parts of England. Do the eight mile walk from Mousehole to Portcurno. Ours ended with a talk by Ben Fogel at the Minnack Threatre, a surprise evening of inspiration and the perfect end to our stay here. Thank you for sharing your house, we are very sad to leave.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at The Fish Store. It is such a very special place. My mother lived just above Mousehole during the war while her father was a vet in Penzance, having evacuated from the Channel Islands. She had last stood in the harbour in 1944 so it was very special to return. The house was such a treat to stay in. The kitchen is a delight to cook in, the beds are divine, the downstairs a complete luxury that we always returned to with a smile on our faces and the view a never-ending delight. Your mother´s cookbooks are treasures to read.

We loved The Fish Store, it’s a beautiful house that felt like home. We came with the intention of eating out but ended up cooking a few times as the space really lends itself to a relaxed family evening in. We tried Kota Kai for lunch and Nauti But Ice for ice cream and both were great. We loved Mousehole and tried 2 Fore Street, Rock Pool Cafe, The Ship Inn and Old Coastguard Hotel, they are all worth a visit, as was the local chippy!

We had a totally fabulous weekend at The Fish Store that couldn’t have gone better. The most stunning location. We are cooks, and it was a real pleasure to have such a well equipped kitchen.The beautiful weather really made it for us and we can´t wait to return.

Thank you so much for a fantastic stay; the house was perfect. I hired this property for a family 40th birthday celebration and the house was so well configured for entertaining with fantastic equipment. We barely left the house as it was so pleasant to stay in with the gorgeous views out to sea and the fantastically well-equipped kitchen meant I spent most of the weekend experimenting with cooking local produce and foraged ingredients. I will be highly recommending this property to friends and family and hope to return in the future.

When we walked in we were bowled over by the view and this beautiful room. We enjoyed the amazing hamper and we found the bedrooms very comfortable. We made the most of the wonderful kitchen and enjoyed eating the local fresh fish. What a fantastic and spacious home. We loved it all. Many thanks.

Lovely place to celebrate a 70th birthday! The property inspired our granddaughter to paint a beautiful watercolour of the view from the window. Interesting furniture and the outlook from the dining table is magnificent. We enjoyed great food from the deli in the village and fresh fish from the Newlyn.

A spectacular week of sunshine based at The Fish Store. The position, the views, comfortable beds, sharp knives (unheard of for a rental), layout, space and last but not least the art! So much to look at and appreciate including the H Johns and Peter Blake! Thank you for sharing this thoughtfully arranged, beautiful space.

It was such a joy to stay in your beautiful home, the love and care that has gone into it gives you an instant feeling of warmth and calm. We came to give our father a special treat and he thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Thank you for sharing such a special place. We hope to return.

This is such a stunning house! We loved the kitchen and cooking was an absolute pleasure. And what about the view! It was hard to leave and we rarely did. Thank you for sharing our wonderful and unique home, it has been an absolute joy!

What a privilege to be sat here looking at the changing colours on the sea and to have experienced the sun, sea, and snow all within the space of one week! We leave relaxed and rested and thank you very much for the use of the wonderful space. Everything we needed was here and we very much look forward to another visit. We will miss the view from the window at breakfast and into the evening and will reflect on how lucky we have been to spend time here. Thank you for sharing this special place, it is really most wonderful.

As soon as we walked in the door we were mesmerised with the view & The Fish Store, hook, line, and sinker! Quirky beams, muted colours and intriguing artwork made it homely and inviting. Considering the age range of our clan, 7 months to 77 years, there really has been something for everyone. Thank you, it has been a pleasure to share your beautiful home. We´ll certainly be back.

Blown away by The Fish store! Superb accommodation with everything a family could need. We loved cooking in the kitchen & all gathering at the table for meals and games. Will definitely recommend this beautiful property to everyone we know and those we don´t! The hamper full of delicious food was also very much appreciated thank you. We would love to come back one day.

Our second time at The Fish Store and it was as magical as 3 years ago! Breakfast at the table with the most wonderful view, lovely walks into Newlyn, the Mousehole Harbour twinkling at dusk, beautiful weather, seal-spotting, and the changing light (no wonder so many artists have been inspired here!). A delight to the senses, we will treasure the memories. Thanks for sharing this wonderful home.

We have fallen in love with The Fish Store and Mousehole. For a family of nine comprising two grown ups, three teenagers and four youngsters, the house is perfect! Light, airy and the feeling of space both in and out, stunning views all day long, and sounds of the sea have created a very chilled out week for all of us. The week has ended all too soon. It has been a real pleasure to experience this house. Thank you for the fab hamper with all of the yummy treats. Our last evening we had our evening meal in and saw a double rainbow over the bay, perfect!

The history, fun and love oozes out of every beam and floorboard! What a wonderful house, we´ve had an amazing week full of laughter, fun, great food and a view to die for!

First impressions were wow.Ten out of Ten! And we weren´t disappointed. This house was the perfect home for our weary, jet lagged family wanting to mellow down. We cooked, walked, read and most of all, enjoyed the view from the kitchen table. Having read the introduction in The Fish Store´s cook book, we became quite taken with the story of The Fish Store and feel privileged to have been able to become part of it. Thank you.

Everything about The Fish Store and Mousehole exceeded our expectations. Sunshine and storms, great food, mushy peas, cheese, wine, crisps and ale... A delightful week writing, creating, drinking, walking, sleeping and relaxing.

We all adored the property. Special mention for the decor; we love the lighting, the little triangular window pane, cushioned window seats, nice chairs, the splash of green on the stairs, all those clothes pegs, great floors, the beams and the books explaining the history of The Fish Store. Thank you!

We loved The Fish Store, it is a beautiful house that felt like our home. We came with the intention of eating out but ended up cooking a few times as the space really lends itself to a relaxed family evening in. A few recommendations; we loved Perranuthnoe Beach, it only has one cafe but it is a good one and the beach is large, sandy and fairly quiet. Watch out for the high tide though as the beach disappears. Porthleven is worth a visit, we couldn´t go on the beach as the Red Flags were up but there are loads of great cafes and shops to visit. We tried Kota Kai for lunch and Nauti But Ice for ice cream and both were great. We loved Mousehole and tried 2 Fore Street, Rock Pool Cafe, The Ship Inn and Old Coastguard Hotel, they are all worth a visit as was the local chippy.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Fish Store. Excellent accommodation and facilities for a large group, enough space to not be under each others feet, good location in the village within walking distance of everything, easy to get to places outside the village without driving too far

It was a very special house with a WONDERFUL kitchen and living space which we greatly enjoyed. The folder in the house was immensely helpful and we were most interested in the history of the house and owners and local information. Unique Home Stays and The Fish Store were a delight and we were thrilled to arrive to beautifully made-up beds and a wonderfully clean and welcoming house. MANY, many thanks.

We have had a wonderful week basking in some unseasonal sunshine all week - very lucky.  Celebrated a birthday and enjoyed the fantastic hospitality The Fish Store has to offer.  A wonderful house and a joy to be here. You would be a happy man staring at the view - awesome!  Thanks Fish Store - we will back

Wonderful property - we had real problems tearing ourselves away to go and explore. Amazing!  Dude the dog had several photo calls from passing tourists as he sat in the doorway at the top of the steps

The house is absolutely lovely. It was a privilege to be allowed to stay in a space that was clearly a family home and loved by its owners. Its location is perfect and the facilities exceptional. Weve booked again for next year because we loved it so much.
