Many holiday rental cottages in this spectacular region of Cornwall have character yet it is quite rare to find one that actually has a soul - until now! Nestled in the very heart of this traditional little fishing village, this former artist's studio immediately envelops you with a warm feeling of peace, tranquility and relaxed comfort - a really spacious and delightful home from home which can prove very difficult to leave! - Dating back over 150 years, The Old Chandlery was originally three small fishermen's cottages that have been sympathetically converted to provide a pretty holiday home of immense character and style and which still retains several original features including exposed Oak beams, granite walls and even the recesses of the three original fireplaces.
The property has reverse level accommodation and the open plan living area has been beautifully furnished with deep sofas, scatter rugs, antique dressers and a fully equipped kitchen.

With a profusion of narrow streets, donkey wide alleys and history at every turn, Mousehole is the epitome of a picturesque Cornish fishing village in a simply stunning setting. In fact Dylan Thomas who spent much of his honeymoon in the village described Mousehole as the prettiest village in all England.
Located just three miles westward from Penzance on the curve of Mounts Bay, the village is centred around an almost completely circular harbour with a small and truly charming beach which always proves popular with families, particularly those with small children.
Mousehole has largely resisted modern day trappings and remains unspoiled by 21st century developments. Working fishing boats still ply their trade from the harbour which is protected from the might of the Atlantic by two sturdy breakwaters, (Cornwall's earliest and begun in 1393) and today are accompanied by visiting yachts and pleasure craft, making the panorama of the harbour truly peaceful and idyllic.
The village itself is a veritable maze of granite and slate cottages, winding narrow streets and cobbled alleyways which have a magic and mystery all of their own amd just waiting to be explored. Virtually unchanged by time, its natural beauty and charm still attracts many artists, drawn by its unique atmosphere and beautiful light.
The famous National Trust cliff walk round the Lands End Peninsula starts at Mousehole. One of its most beautiful stretches is south from the village to Lamorna Cove and the Coastal Footpath continues towards Penberth and Porthcurno. The whole walk is full of breathtaking scenery and the immediate and surrounding coastline is officially designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by the National Trust.
Mousehole has a fine selection of craft and gift shops and small art galleries and in addition to some excellent pubs and restaurants (which serve the freshest fish you will ever enjoy, landed and delivered daily from nearby Newlyn).There is an enviable choice of tearooms serving quite delicious Cornish cream teas with mountains of golden clotted cream and superb fresh crab sandwiches.
