Overview

Property

Updated: 27-Sep-2016
Cottage in Mousehole, Cornwall, England - Ideal Location A Minute's Walk From Traditional Cornish Fishing Harbour And Sandy Beach

Foxes Shute is a detached cottage that has been recently redecorated (2012) by the new owners. It is a delightful cottage at the heart of this lively Cornish village. It is only a minutes walk from the bustling fishing harbour with its sandy beach. Mousehole is an ideal place to bring children and watch them play safely on the golden sand. There are a maze of streets lined with excellent restaurants, galleries and gift shops. Although Foxes Shute has a traditional exterior we aim to provide you with every modern convenience (WIFI, Broadband, BTVision, Wide screen TV, Ipod dock, washer/dryer, microwave, coffee machine etc.) to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible.

About the Owner

We both live in Rome I am English but I have been living here since 1991. My CP is Roman but has Sicilian origins. I was raised in the Camborne/Redruth area of Cornwall. I have always loved the Penwith peninsula and when we visited in the summer of 2011 we decided to buy a cottage here that would be our eventual retirement home. For now unfortunately we have to work until that day when we can come 'home' to Cornwall.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Foxes Shute is a beautiful cottage in the most perfect location, what more could you ask for! Andrew & Giovanni have truly thought of everything. We felt very relax the minute we arrived. The cottage was very clean & had everything we needed & more! I stayed here with my husband & two young children & the cottage was a perfect size for us. Cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch. The children loved the harbour & a very kind neighbour let the kids use his crab pod. We caught around 20 crabs which they put back after. All in all we had a wonderful stay & Andrew & Giovanni couldn't of been more helpful. We would love to return one day.

wonderful cottage in beautiful Mousehole

  • 4 of 5

A friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in May when we were treated to wonderful warm sunshine. The cottage is cosy, very well equipped (especially kitchen utensils, which is often a let-down in many holiday rentals), even a washing line outside for our washing! Loved all the local additions such as paintings, books, maps, trinkets. Didn't use the log burner but liked looking at it! Perfect location for strolling around Mousehole. We appreciated the welcome biscuits and there being some tea and milk there on our arrival from a long journey! I would come back for sure. Loved the cottage and Mousehole.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Foxes Shute is a perfect place to stay! Located very close to the harbour and all sights within Mousehole. Clean, very nicely and modern furnished,just a lovely accomodation. We stayed there with the whole family, 2 adults plus 2 kids and had no problem with the size of the cottage. Nice and helpful owner who arranged everything we needed.

A great place to stay - we will return next year!

Foxes Shute

  • 4 of 5

Foxes Shute was a great holiday cottage, perfectly located within the village of Mousehole.

The cottage was very well decorated and furnished to a high standard, also very well equipped.

I would point out the bathroom is incredibly small and the stairs would not suit anyone with a disability or manouvrebility issues!

Overall we had a fabulous holiday and really enjoyed our stay at Foxes Shute

Location

From the Owner

I fell in love with this property the moment I saw it in December 2011 and then we saw it on TV in Caroline Quentin's Cornwall (episode 4). We both returned to see it in April and made the offer almost immediately. We love Mousehole, the place and the people so much that in August 2012 we had our civil partnership in Penzance, wedding lunch at the Coastguards in Mousehole and then a reception at Foxes Shute, our home. For us this is not just a financial investment. It is an investment in our future in a place that we love and that we are proud to call home. I spent July and August in Foxes Shute and my partner arrived at the beginning of August. It was a truly fantastic summer and we honestly feel that you will love the Foxes Shute, Mousehole and Cornwall as much as we do.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Foxes Shute is a minute's walk from the harbour which has a sandy beach. On the Penwith Peninsula there are several world famous beaches, Porthcurno (with the Minack Theatre) is ten minute drive, Sennen Cove is about 15 minutes. To the east are the golden sands of Mount's Bay and Marazion (10 minutes), and the various secluded beaches and coves of the Lizard Peninsula.

Travel:

To really explore the area a car is recommended (although we managed for 2 months easily by bus). The public transport system is well-organised, efficient and regular. The nearest airport is Newquay (summer) and Bristol. There nearest train Station is in 3 miles away in Penzance (with direct connections to London Paddington in 5hrs30). There are also car rental agencies by the train/bus station in Penzance.

Distances:

Mousehole is a picturesque village ideally located to explore the surrounding Penwith and Lizard Peninsulas. From stunning beaches to idyllic villages, tin mining heritage to monolithic rock formations, rugged moors to verdant valleys, from cliff walking to sunbathing. Cornwall has something for everyone to enjoy and explore.

Further Details:

Mousehole has a good range of restaurants from fine dining at the Coastguards, 2 Fore and Cornish Range, more informal at the Ship, Jessie's Dairy, Janner's Fish and Chip Shop and Pam's Pantry. For your basic food supplies the shop/post office is well stocked (with excellent bread delivered daily and fresh shellfish on order). There are a range of galleries and gift shops along the harbour front and tucked away in the maze of streets behind. There is a larger Co-Op in Newlyn (along with galleries, deli and an excellent home made ice cream shop Jelbert's). Penzance has a full range of shops, supermarkets, gift shops, galleries, cafés, delis etc.
