About Heather Paterson

My name is Fiona Moore. I have been visiting West Cornwall with my family for many years and Mousehole has always been our favourite village; so pretty and characterful, and the locals are always so welcoming and friendly. I live in the Cotswolds and my work as a busy consultant in the retail food sector often takes me abroad. All I can say is that as St Michaels Mount comes into view as I drive down the A30, the pressures of work seem to lift and it is a dream to find such a relaxing sanctuary as Wesley House to come to. My sister, Heather Paterson loves West Cornwall too - she deals with bookings and can give you lots of advice about Wesley House, Mousehole and further afield.

I hope the photos in this listing can give you some idea of the convenience and stylishness of the place. Food is my passion as well as the way I make a living and this is reflected in the well-equipped kitchen. There are great places to eat out locally, but if cooking is your thing too, I think you will find most of what you need at Wesley together with an abundance of great fresh ingredients available locally.

One of my favourite things about being in Wesley Square - its REALLY close to the harbour and its beaches and less than two minutes walk from the great restaurants and art galleries in Mousehole, but the quiet surroundings would make you think they were miles away!

Heather Paterson purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Heather Paterson chose South West Cornwall

Mousehole is a charming and friendly village where the ancient fishing harbour has been transformed into a delightful place to paddle, swim, fish, mess about in boats, or simply watch everyone else doing those things. There are plenty of really good places to eat, and beautiful little art galleries to browse around. A short drive will take you to a plethora of interesting sites, both coastal and inland - even without a car, the bus service can take you around the West Cornwall peninsula, or to Penzance Railway station and the Scilly Isles Ferry.

What makes this apartment unique

Lower Wesley House is equipped and furnished the way you would do your own home - for instance, the dishwasher, fridge and cooking appliances built into the granite topped kitchen units are all by Bosch, and the bathroom has underfloor heating to ease you into the beautiful double ended bath and monsoon shower. Original artwork has been chosen to reflect our love for the Cornish landscape and on sunny days or balmy evenings, a table and chairs are provided outside to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of Wesley Square. Few rental properties boast such stylish flair and attention to detail!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was superb - beautifully maintained, well equipped and extremely comfortable. The whole family, including our dog, loved it. Even though we enjoyed some wonderfully mild weather, the wood burner was particularly welcome when we came back in the evenings from a meal in the village. Thank you also for the welcome pack. It was a lovely touch and set just the right tone for the stay. ... We will undoubtedly look to book the house again at some time.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note following our stay in Wesley House

to tell you how much we enjoyed it. The cottage had everything we needed

and was beautifully furnished; a real home from home. I'm sure we will visit Mousehole again and I'll be sure to get in touch about staying in Wesley House.

I loved my stay over Easter. Thanks so much for having me. Loved everything - especially the new bathroom and heated floor, what a treat!

Perfectly peaceful, brilliantly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is simply stunning. Lots of beautiful design choices, and home comforts mixed up with little luxuries. The bed is comfy and bedding luxurious. Beautiful bathroom. Gorgeous log burner. Stunning kitchen and diner which is equipped with everything you'll need. Mousehole is the perfect bolt hole, it's charm and beauty is overwhelming. Great local restaurants and lovely locals.

A lovely home from home!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home from home tucked away in Mousehole where I spent a relaxing few days in December. Great cafes and restaurants were still open and the post is collected later than it is in the Cotswolds! However, if you don't feel comfortable reversing in your car avoid Mousehole at all costs!!

Simply perfect in all aspects of our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We know Cornwall very well and chosen to stay in Mousehole simply to relax. I found Wesley House online and took to its homely, clean and well maintained cottage straight away and from the images provided. When we arrived we couldn't contain our excitement, there were squeals of delight as we explored the cottage, it was simply perfect for us, quirky, beautiful furnishings and spotlessly clean. Our holiday had started on a high note indeed. We were also greeted by a hamper full of goodies which is a lovely touch. We bought and cooked fresh fish from Newlyn, did a cold meat and cheese reception for our friends in Penzance and who once owned St Michaels guest house in Marazion, they fell in love with Wesley House and were full of admiration of the owners and what they had created. We ate at No 2 in Mousehole, relaxed with a drink in the Ship Inn, visited Falmouth for Ricks fish and chips, breakfasted at the harbour deli in Mousehole, soaked up the sun on Perranuthnoe beach and visited some of the wonderful places we love so much, Porthcurno, Bottallack mines, Cape Cornwall, Marazion and Porthleven. Thank you so much Sarah and Max for making our time away a memorable one. Neil, Carole and Carole's mum Elaine

The beautiful Mousehole harbour with its two small sandy family friendly beaches is only 30 seconds walk away. A 20-30 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), Godrevy with its wonderful beach,lighthouse and seals, St. Ives, and the open air Minack Theatre.


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 journey.


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 some tea, ground coffee and milk to get you started as well as a bottle of decent Prosecco to enjoy. Theres, a well stocked village shop/post office, "2 Fore Street" is a brilliant restaurant with a Raymond Blanc trained chef, The Old Coastguard Hotel which is a good stop for a drink or supper in the pretty garden running down to the sea, a Delicatessen / Coffee shop, weekly visits from the fish van and butcher, and seasonal fresh vegetables and flowers for sale in the streets, so you don’t have to go far for basics.

There is also a good pub, The Ship, and a delightful vintage cafe overlooking the sea all within easy walking distance.

You can also browse local artworks (with examples inside the apartment!) in the Sandpiper Gallery, the Tyler Gallery, and several others tucked away in the harbour-side lanes.

The South West Coast path runs through the village.
