Sorry, that home is no longer available

House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

In 1893 it would have been possible to post a letter in this property and take a few minutes to catch up with the local gossip! however almost 100 years later this former village Post Office has been transformed into an enchanting holiday home which is located in Paul, a quiet and relatively sleepy little village that overlooks the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole. Recently renovated to a very comfortable standard by the new owners, this pretty and deceptively spacious cottage nestles beside the village stream and is set back in a terrace of similar properties. The fully enclosed and south facing garden is well stocked with flowering shrubs and plants and is ideal for that early cup of coffee in the morning or for a well earned glass of something stronger after a hard day on the beach! This delightful property also benefits from full central heating and a small wood burning stove in the lounge which makes it extremely cosy in the winter and therefore accessible all year round.

The village of Paul is very friendly with the local pub, the Kings Arms just a short stroll from the cottage where you will find a warm welcome, a good range of traditional Cornish real ales and a selection of delicious home cooked food. The village of Paul sits high above Mousehole and the regional hub of Penzance and is therefore easily accessible by car or public transport. Both locations offer a wealth of shops, galleries and some of the best restaurants in West Cornwall. The Old Post Office is a beautifully presented cottage in a charming and tranquil location, enjoy!
