Property Consultant Clare says
The enviable position right on the waterfront is one of the aspects which makes this beautiful home so special. The simple yet luxurious interiors are absolutely stunning and rewrite the rule book for "seaside shabby chic". I could stay here watching the waves lap the shore for hours and hours...

FOOD AND DRINK
The stylish first floor kitchen is well-equipped with range cooker, Smeg fridge/freezer, coffee machine and pots and pans a-plenty. The rustic-style table with reclaimed bench makes for a social relaxed dining space for intimate suppers. Stroll out to the harbour-front where the fishing boats land, and select the day's freshest catch before returning to self-cater in your private abode to create lip-smacking menus using the finest local fare.
If you'd rather spend your break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
The harbour town of Mousehole has a good selection of fine restaurants to choose from; 2 Fore Street, The Cornish Range, and The Old Coastguard Hotel all come highly recommended. A trip to Mousehole is not complete without enjoying fish n' chips straight out of the bag on the harbour...!
