About The Old Exchange

Our family and friends have always loved coming to Mousehole and enjoy the beauty and charm of the village and Harbour. We enjoy walking and painting on the many lovely beaches nearby. It is a very friendly village with shops, art galleries, a pub, post office and several restaurants serving great food.

The Old Exchange purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Old Exchange chose Mousehole

Mousehole is a great place to de-stress and relax, walking round the pretty streets and enjoying the friendly atmosphere. We love the Sea Salts and Sail Festival held every two years and the Mousehole Lights at Christmas. Walking to Lamorna Cove on the stunning south west coast path. Having beautiful beaches all to ourselves, the Minack Theatre and great farmers' markets with local produce. Porthcurno is our favourite white sand beach. Mousehole sits on the edge of Mount's bay with the spectacular views of St Michael's Mount.

What makes this cottage unique

We can park in front of our property and unpack after a long journey (parking is rare in Mousehole). Sitting in the garden behind the house in the evening, watching the sun go down.

Perfect Stay in Mousehole

  • 5 of 5

The Old Exchange cottage makes a wonderful comfortable base for exploring this part of Cornwall. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and wished we could have stayed longer. The beds are comfortable and most everything you could need is provided. The parking space is a real plus!

Lovely cosy cottage in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay, loved the cottage and the village. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable and is in a perfect location for exploring the Cornish countryside and beaches. Some great places to eat in Mousehole too.

The only slight difficulties we had were with the shower as my husband is tall and the bathroom ceiling is low and with the parking space as our car is large, but nothing the owners can do about either so it's just something to bear in mind. We wouldn't hesitate the go back to the cottage in future though. Thanks very much for giving us the opportunity to stay in your lovely cottage.

Great place in ideal spot

  • 4 of 5

This is a super spacious two bedroom property approximately 300 metres from the harbour. Everything you could wish for in a holiday rental is provided by the vendors. The place feels more like a home than just a place to stay. We only stayed for three days but wished it could have been for longer. Our two grandchildren who live close by stayed over for one of the nights and we played games with them which were also provided in the home. This is a place that caters for the whole family and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for sharing your home.

A cosy and stylish cottage with everything you need for great stay! Five stars!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage! The best place to explore Cornwall from. Really cosy, lovely wood burning stove and a comfortable bed! I can't think of anything that was missing from the cottage. Mousehole is great and with the cottage being a stones throw from the harbour, you won't want to leave!
