"Bellas Mouse" is a much loved 4 bed original Cornish cottage along with her self contained studio Annex.

Found in the old heart of the arty town of Penryn, just a mile from Falmouth, this vibrant historic waterside town has pubs, a wine bar, deli, award winning eco cafe / studios / music venue, pottery, artists studios, great fish and chips and Indian takeaway and much more.

Shute Lane is a conservation pocket and Bellas Mouse a listed home on a quiet no through lane with only two houses worth of vehicles passing by.

Enter through a gate in the wall into a courtyard with stable doors into the main house and the Annex.

The Annex has a studio room which has a new day bed and spare single bed, small table and chairs and shelves. There are doors to the bathroom and kitchen, which has a door to the back terraces.

The main house is abit of a warren of steps up, down and round ! Most rooms are dual aspect and the light is lovely as the doors are all partly or fully glazed and the walls thick and curving catch the light.

The sitting room has an open fire and slouchy sofas, then there's a door through to the dining room with a table that sits 6 and a comfy chair. Doorway down into the kitchen and another into the downstairs bedroom. The kitchen has a door out into a little walkway courtyard and steps up to the back terraces. From the dining room are steps up and to the right a cloakroom and way to the terraces and to the left upstairs to three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The terraces are lovely and private with water views and glipses over to St Mawes, along with a table and chairs for 6 and a bench for outside eating.

All bedding is provided and laundered professionally and the house is looked after by our wonderful housekeeper Molly and her husband Ben. "Bellas" (as the house is affectionately know) was fully refurbished in 2006 / 7, including: rewiring, plumbing, bathrooms, kitchens, heating, re-landscaping, handmade windows and doors. She had a new roof two years ago and has been redecorated inside and out in 2013.

Shute Lane is steep and the house such that I do not reccommend her to guests with restricted mobility or those with small toddling children (but holiday there with my 5 year old) and there are changes of level to the terraces.

There 's a parking space outside our garage otherwise parking is on the road. It is fine to pull down the lane to quickly unload into the front courtyard when you arrive and leave. Bellas is just a few minutes walk from the train station for those on public transport.

"Perfect Cornish Getaway"

The house is stylish, charming and full of character and the garden is lovely and secluded. The double bedrooms in the main house were all beautiful so no one got a raw deal. Really enjoyed whiling aw… More
