Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The Hut is in Mousehole which was famously described as the 'loveliest village in England' by Dylan Thomas, who spent his honeymoon here.
The Hut is an exclusive and unique sanctuary and is a peaceful and romantic retreat for two, it has a master bedroom with a super comfortable bed dressed with linens to ensure a good nights sleep. The bedroom has french doors that flood the room with light and open onto the private garden overlooking th eharbour and the Bay.
The Hut is full of light and is a stylish, understated romantic hideaway with a collection of fine ceramics and cornish art. It is not a holiday let, it is a hidden hideaway hideaway for those seeking starry skies, the sight and sound of ocean waves and a beautiful space all of their own.
We know you all need a chance to relax and recharge and the Hut enables you to do this - it has a comfortable sitting room with a log burner, central heating and a fully equipped kitchen. The wetroom is lined with Italian marble and we supply fluffy towels.

The West Country region
With a history stretching back to the Bronze Age, Penzance is a sunny, bohemian coastal town in West Cornwall, full of ancient nooks and crannies, old buildings and quirky streets. Nowhere is its character more vividly felt than on the town’s oldest street – winding, atmospheric Chapel Street, which meanders down to the sea. The street is now lined with independent boutiques, antiques shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, all occupying centuries-old properties – not a chain in sight.
When you book a stay with us, we’ll send you ‘The Guide’, our exclusive insiders’ guide to the best bits of Cornwall, from destination restaurants and galleries to the best beaches and walks. In the meanwhile, here are a few ideas to whet your appetite.
A stay at No.33 places you in the historic heart of Penzance, a lively, arty town on the western shore of Mount’s Bay. The Chapel Street area has an engaging mix of pubs, acclaimed restaurants, galleries, antiques shops and boutiques – most occupying centuries-old properties. Just paces from No.33, there’s Untitled by Robert Wright, a tapas lounge and restaurant with a Michelin Bib Gourmand and contemporary Cornish art; Stoneman Graphics Gallery, one of Cornwall’s leading contemporary and fine art galleries; Fishboy boutique for fashion-forward threads and design T-shirts; and towards the harbour, the The Dock, an age-old harbourside pub frequented by fishermen and artists, with regular music nights.
A short drive, walk or cycle around the coast is one of Cornwall’s prettiest coastal villages: small but perfectly formed Mousehole. You could easily while away a day nosing around its pretty, winding streets, admiring the fishing boats in the harbour, sitting on the soft sands of harbour beach with an ice-cream, and looking around its art galleries and craft shops.
Cornwall has a thriving food and drink scene, and is considered to be one of the most interesting foodie destinations outside London – thanks to the wealth of natural ingredients at our fingertips and the chefs inspired by them. You can buy the freshest seafood in nearby Newlyn, sample Cornwall’s ultra-creamy ice-cream (with clotted cream on top), book yourself on a gourmet foraging walk with Fat Hen, or have it all laid on at acclaimed restaurants such as Porthminster Beach Café in St Ives, the Gurnard’s Head near Zennor, or Untitled by Robert Wright, on Chapel Street itself.
Home to hundreds of artists, ceramicists and designer-makers, West Cornwall lives and breathes art. Penzance has a number of key commercial galleries, as well as the Exchange, the Penlee House Gallery and the Newlyn Gallery. Just a few miles away on the north coast is the county’s leading artistic outpost, the Tate St Ives.
Penzance is the perfect base for exploring the many superb sandy beaches of the Land’s End Peninsula, including surfy Sennen, Gwithian, Porthcurno and the town beaches of St Ives – all of which are just 20 minutes away from No.33 Chapel Street.
There are plays, operas and musicals every summer at the Minack Theatre, built into the cliffs above Porthcurno; historic houses and gorgeous gardens at Godolphin House, Trebah, Trevarno and Trewidden; as well as the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth, iconic St Michael’s Mount and, of course, the world-famous Eden Project.
