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

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.

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 with us. We hope to return in the future.

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.

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.

We had an amazing stay. It was just the two of us and I could not have asked for a better holiday. The was beautiful, we enjoyed evenings in, watching films downstairs and spending our days admiring the view. Lovely lovely pub with the best fish and chips and a gorgeous restaurant. It was magical.

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!

Marvelous stay. Superb house and location. The shifting light and unbelievably mild climate made our time a joy. Buckets of fresh air, wonderful walks and nights watching films on the big screen. Get in! Memories that will live on for a long time!

Wonderful house that feels so very special. We have had such a lovely family break, with the weather being so kind and everyday we discovered another beautiful beach where the fresh air has swept all of those winter cobwebs away. We will be heading home full of energy and will always think back fondly to the days we spent here as a family.

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.

This was our first holiday in Mousehole and in Cornwall for my young family and I. We loved it and were fascinated by the history and spent hours reading about the house, seeing the blueprints and reading The Fish Store cook book. Thanks for sharing your house with us.

The best holiday ever. We have had so much fun in this wonderful house!

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´ve had an amazing stay at The Fish Store, the house, Mousehole and Cornwall in general have all exceeded our expectations.

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!

The Fish Store is above and beyond any home you could wish for. It´s the first day of our holiday and The Fish Store 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. Our´s 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.

We had a truly brilliant holiday and it would not have been without such a fantastic base to call home for two weeks. It was more like staying at a home of an old friend. Thank you so much!

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.

A marvelous week away in The Fish Store. The coastal path stole the show with the ever changing view from the dining room table. Brilliant space and a beautiful well thought out house. We hope to return soon.

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

We had a fantastic time at The Fish Store - it´s a really great place.

We had a fantastic time and absolutely loved the property, so much so we didn´t want to go home!!

Very high standard throughout. We all had a wonderful family holiday.

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.

Fantastic time, great place. Had a brilliant time, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

We had a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful property with stunning views and superb countryside close by. Property was amazing and maintained to a very high standard. We were surprised with the amount of space and yet how warm and homely the house felt. A very refreshing way to book and experience a holiday with all the stress taken out!!!

Many many thanks for sharing your treasure with us.

And the connection to Augustus and Gwen John was a final wonder to discover.

Your brush and inks and prints are so evocative of beach summers.

We have just returned from our holiday in the Fish Store. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your house. It is such a very 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 from with a smile on our faces and the view a never ending delight.Your mothers cook books are treasures to read.

The kitchen has a fantastic table and wonderful view so this is where we spent most of our time - A really beautiful house, steeped in family history that´s almost tangible - we loved it

We had a fabulous week at the Fish Store - it was definitely a unique place

A beautiful property, fantastic location. would love to stay again

We had an had an excellent stay, we have been recommending the house to everyone I speak to

It was probably the nicest house we have ever stayed in

I had fabulous stay - truly inspiring -the building is wonderful

We had a glorious week of relaxation - thank you so much. The Fish Store is a fabulous find + very well thought out refurb making it perfect for a sociable space. Love the attention to detail

What a magical week! we have enjoyed a precious family time in this magnificent house with its stunning views, fabulous location, lovely luxuries (great beds, fabulous DVD screening) and glorious weather to top it all off!  We took you up on your Porthchapel beach recommendation as an alternative to our favorite Porthcurno and we were thrilled we had. Thank you for sharing your inspiring attention to detail and family skills in this wonderful place.  We hope to be back!

Stunning view, amazing walks, sitting by the fire, games of ping pong, crab fishing, the ship, the kings arms, a badger, some shopping, cook ups, butterflies + caterpillars, sandcastles + lots of wine = great memories

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

Blissfully comfortable beds. A wonderfully wet week spent cooking spider crabs to make into bisques and more.  We drank way too much wine and had a truly memorable holiday in this fantastic house

The holiday was very fun. We went on some lovely walks. The Fish Store is a joy to stay in.  The TV is awesome! We don´t want to go home. There are some great rocks for climbing if you turn left out of the house. We had a lovely time!

This is a stunning property - so comfortable and well-equipped. We have taken a lot of self-catering holidays in UK properties but this is absolutely the best with regards to kitchen and dining facilities. The kids loved the table tennis and cinema

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

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Fish Store, the accommodation suited us perfectly, would recommend to others. Thank you

Superb property and ideal for our family celebration

The house was fantastic and extremely comfortable for our large party. With the amazing view, I think we felt we could have just spent the week watching the sea!  As first time visitors to that area, we really enjoyed staying in Mousehole - its a lovely little village and was the perfect choice for our break! We managed to try a couple of the restaurants at least once and also The Ship.  Thank you for the loan of the house - hopefully well be fortunate enough to return at some stage

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.

It was as beautiful in real life as it was portrayed in the web site, and we loved the Artwork and aesthetic of the interior. It was a real treat to of been able to stay in such a unique and individual space .
