Z45 - The Queach
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
150 yards up from Mousehole's bustling little centre of shops, pubs, cafés and pretty harbour is The Queach, a very traditional, stone and slate cottage with stunning right-out-to-sea views. A few granite steps and a pretty bit of front garden raise it from the lane; at the back, steep stone steps lead up to a little terrace (table/chairs, barbecue) with great views out to sea over lichen-covered rooftops.
A neat porch facilitates boots; front door into width-of-cottage living room with TV/DVD, woodburner and two windows looking directly out to sea, inviting you to stop, sit and enjoy the ever-changing moods of sea and sky; step down to smart, spacious kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, cooker with induction hob) with door (5'7" lintel) to back garden. Stairs up to three bedrooms – at the front, two double with fabulous sea views and, at the back, a twin; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Loading and unloading immediately outside; parking permit provided. A truly comfortable, welcoming, much loved cottage.

The West Country region
The End of England - the Penwith peninsula: a wild land, but much inhabited since long, long ago; and very beautiful in its wildness. The equal-top coastal drive in the West Country is along its north coast from Pendeen to Zennor to St Ives (Exmoor's sea-view road is its rival): gorse and bracken hills, granite-topped and bouldered, above you; below, small drystone-walled fields sprinkled with sheep, granite farmhouses and barns, spectacularly rocky headlands (to walk), and - if you're lucky and it's evening - a deep, deep blue sea beyond. There are Stone Age burial quoits, Bronze Age hut circles, two remarkably preserved Iron Age villages.
On the softer southern coast, Mousehole is Cornwall's prettiest fishing village, Newlyn the West Country's busiest; built into the cliffs above Porthcurno's sandy cove is the Minack Theatre - a 'must go', but wrap up warm. Sennen Cove's huge sandy beach is wonderful for children and sunsets, as well as surfing. The tall chimneys of extinct tin-mining stand strangely romantically above the sea at Botallack. All this and the light bring painters, especially to St Ives. Penzance is a good, sensible town and base with fine prom for strolling. Helicopters or a ship will take you to the Scilly Isles; the mainline railway to and from the world you left behind. Your first glimpse of St Michael's Mount is one of travelling's thrills. Go to Land's End if you must (only). All round the peninsula goes the coast path, of course - one of the very best stretches of it.
Mousehole: perhaps the prettiest Cornish fishing village; horseshoe of granite cottages, shops, good restaurant, cafés, pub round its harbour. Little sandy harbour beach. Good walks. Newlyn (busy, fishing harbour), 1 mile. Penzance, 2; Porthcurno (Minack Theatre), 8; Sennen (good sandy beach, surf school), 10; Land's End, about 12.
