  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

A mile inland from Mousehole by hedgerow lane is the hamlet of Sheffield (cluster of sturdy granite cottages surrounded by farmland), perched high looking seaward. Recently discovered artefacts reveal this area has been inhabited since Mesolithic times; its particularly fine granite has been quarried until recently. We have one of its granite cottages, snuggled between its neighbours with fine long views out to sea and along the coast from upstairs. Built in 1850, it's now a comfy home full of original art and craft work and quirkiness. At the back there is an enclosed lawn garden with sea glimpses.Front door to inner porch (coat hooks/boot space) into living room with big inglenook (woodburner), slate floor; kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, freezer, larder fridge) with tiled floor; sun room with comfy sofa and chairs and door to garden; loo (washbasin). From the living room, steep, half-spiral stairs up to three bedrooms – two double (one with 5' bed, the other with limited clothes-hanging space), both with great view, and a single; bathroom (suite). A unique cottage; lane walk to pub ½ mile away at Paul; great walks along coast path, ¾ mile.

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.

Penzance

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.
