Looking from the outside of this traditional end of terrace Cornish cottage, you would be quite right to assume that the interior could be fairly similar. Possibly, a little traditional and quite plain? - However, nothing could be further than the truth as Anneth Lowen - which means new dwelling in Cornish - dates back over 100 years and has been completely renovated and transformed into a very pretty and contemporary holiday home.
Located in the traditional Cornish village of Paul which is set high on a hill and overlooks the village of Mousehole, the property oozes charm and character with a large granite feature fireplace complete with wood burning stove for those chilly autumn nights! The current owners have spent a considerable amount of time in trying to create a holiday home that delivers every modern facility for today's demanding guest yet still retains examples of its Cornish heritage - and they have succeeded. The colour palette for the interior decoration is rich and bold with plum coloured walls in the main bedroom and aqua and silver in the second bedroom. A very pretty poppy flower theme runs through the ground floor which perfectly compliments the soft brown leather sofas and Travertine floor tiles. The quiet and peaceful village of Paul is served by a lovely pub - the Kings Arms. Only a short stroll from the cottage, it is family friendly, serves good local ale, fresh Cornish produce and is therefore ideal for that early evening pint in the sunshine - after all you are on holiday!

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.
