Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

This truly delightful and absolutely charming three hundred year old former fisherman's cottage should really be called Smugglers Haunt after the discovery in the early 1960's of a secret smugglers tunnel which allegedly ran down to the harbour area. Evidence of the tunnel entrance has long since gone but rumour has it that on dark and windswept nights, the faint reek of black tobacco can still be smelt! Cregyn Cottage - which has recently been refurbished to a very comfortable standard – sits in an enviable location just a stones throw from the pretty little west harbour with its child friendly beach and golden yellow sand. Constructed over two floors due to the steep nature of this part of the village, this quirky cottage has reverse level accommodation with one entrance and the three bedrooms at street level and the living space and a further entrance at harbour level below! Cregyn Cottage has a very carefree and relaxed feel to it which is partly due its fresh and simple styling with seaside overtones and a cream and white decorative palette. The entire ground floor space is very much open plan living with a fully fitted kitchen, dining and lounge area, a separate wet room and two doors leading to a small patio area and a cobbled path straight onto the beach! The picturesque and ancient fishing village of Mousehole continues to battle with the 21st century as it tries to retain its magical charm yet cater for the discerning visitor. Donkey wide streets, tiny cottages and net lofts jostle for position with art galleries, fabulous restaurants and craft shops all waiting to be discovered! Cregyn Cottage will certainly not disappoint particularly if the children love tales of smugglers, stormy nights and the revenue men!

Entrance from street level into hall area. Bedroom One: Twin beds with additional furniture, integral wardrobe and sea peep. Bedroom Two: Double bed with additional furniture and beautiful en-suite bathroom comprising of bath with electric shower, hand basin and WC. Exposed granite wall, additional furniture with large integral wardrobes. Bedroom Three: Double bed with additional furniture and integral wardrobe. Shower room with electric shower and cubicle, WC and hand basin. Stairs to lower ground floor and open plan living space. Please note that Cregyn Cottage has all original doors and low beams so you may need to take care especially if you are rather tall when moving around the cottage! Large living area with solid Oak floor. Fully fitted galley style kitchen with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, Family size fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave. Dining table and six chairs. Extensive and comfortable sofa and armchair seating in fresh blue and white striped material. Night storage heating throughout. Flat screen television with DVD player, games console and small music system. Separate wet room with shower, WC and hand basin – perfect for when the children come off the beach with those sandy feet! – straight through the stable door from the courtyard (shared). Additional rear door to patio area with suitable furniture.
