Wonderful silent Loft. I loved the style, the old pine furniture and lime washed walls, rustic but comfortable. Mousehole is a dream. Lucy and Hugo, Bristol

We went to St Ives & lands end today, both beautiful. Its been lovely to stay at Abbey Loft and in Mousehole. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Thank you to you and Dominic for making sure that everything was OK during my week in Mousehole. I had a great holiday, it’s a fabulous place and the Abbey Loft was just the perfect place to stay. Prahba, Gloucestershire.

Characterful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Abbey Loft is in a great location with views of the harbour from the stable door. I loved the rustic decor. Small but perfectly fine for a couple and baby. The bed was really comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need and there was a plentiful supply of hot water. Lizzie gave us flowers and wine to welcome us which was lovely. Mousehole is such a fantastic place and the perfect location for families. On our holiday we visited St Ives, Porthcurno Beach, St Michael's Mount and Trengwainton Gardens. However, you could easily stay a week without having to leave Mousehole. In the village we drank at The Ship Inn and ate at the Rock Cafe, Jessie's Dairy and the Old Coastguard Hotel. We went on two boat trips with Cormorant Cruises one to Newlyn Harbour the other to Lamorna Cove. Skipper Mike Collier was fantastic and regaled us with lots of historical facts about the area. We will be back....

Ideal Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic break, staying in Abbey Loft.

Ideally situated just off the harbour in a quiet courtyard - very convenient. We parked in the harbour car park which is less than 5 minutes walk away. The accommodation was just the right size for 2 people, and had all that we needed for a week long stay.

Lizzie met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome.

Mousehole is a beautiful place to stay, and I'm sure we'll be returning.

Easter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend andI I were looking for somewhere to spend the Easter weekend and we couldn't have chosen better. Abbey Loft is the perfect couples getaway, tucked away but just moments from the harbour....you can see the harbour waters through the lobster pots from the kitchen window! So gorgeous and it has everything you need. The hosts are really friendly and helpful and left some lovely treats for our arrival. I would love to go back again sometime.

Lovely little place, perfect for a couples' weekend retreat. Just round the corner from local shop and very near pub which does great food!

What a magical little place Mousehole is.

Thoroughly recommend!

A Profoundly Pleasant Experience

  • 5 of 5

Lizzie and Dominic went far beyond our expectations from the beginning: helping us with logistics, information, guidance from the moment we arrived--and before! It's hard to imagine enhancing the charms of Moushole, but they did. Truly gracious and helpful. The space is most pleasant and well-maintained, and located perfectly. We hated to leave, and are scheming ways to get back. Recommend with utter enthusiasm.

Activity and Interests

Mousehole harbour with its safe sandy beaches is just fifty metres from the Net Loft close enough to carry your morning coffee down to the beach!

A 30 minute drive will take you to a wide variety of locations on the North and South coasts of Cornwall, including Land's End, Sennen Cove (excellent for surfing) and St Ives.


You won't need a car in Mousehole: there is an excellent frequent 15 minute bus service to and from Penzance (with its mainline railway station) and buses also travel around the Penwith peninsula.

Newquay airport, with flights across the UK, is just over an hour's taxi ride away.


Penzance: 4 miles. St Michael's Mount: 7 Miles. Minack Theatre: 9 miles. Land's End: 10 miles. St Ives: 11 miles. Falmouth: 29 miles.

Further Details:

Our welcome pack includes toiletries and a pint of local milk, and there's a well stocked village shop, a deli shopand cafe, a weekly visit from the fish van and butcher, and fresh vegetables and flowers for sale in the streets, so you don’t have to go far for basics.

You can dine in a fine selection of eateries including "2, Fore Street", The Cornish Range, and the award-winning Old Coastguard Hotel, and there is also a good pub and a fish and chip shop all within easy walking distance.

You can also browse local art and crafts in the Tyler Gallery and Sandpiper Gallery and several others tucked away in the harbour-side lanes.
