A beautifully appointed one bedroom flat with the most outstanding sea and coastal views, taking in St Clements Island, St Michael's Mount, The Lizard and beyond. Situated in one of Cornwall's prettiest, traditional fishing villages, it is the ideal 'all seasons' location for a Cornish holiday.

Elvan Tor is just a short scenic stroll from Mousehole harbour with two small sandy beaches and larger pebbled beaches with rock pools just waiting to be explored! The ancient village with its narrow streets and cobbled lanes, surrounds the harbour and boasts numerous art galleries, potteries, excellent restaurants, pubs and a village shop.

Mousehole has a regular bus service, is on the cycle path and has the most incredible cliff walks. It is a short drive to Lands End, Porthcurno with the famous Minack Theatre, St ives and Marazion to name but a few.

Mousehole, just 3 miles west of Penzance, is an ancient, traditional fishing village, full of character that has remained unchanged for centuries. It is particularly magical at Christmas with its famous Christmas light display that attracts visitors from miles around to enjoy the views and atmosphere.

Elvan Tor is situated in a slightly elevated position, therefore enjoying uninterrupted breathtaking sea and coastal views towards Marazion, St Michael's Mount, The Lizard and beyond. The flat, part of a larger property, offers smart, bright and comfortable accommodation, with a private separate entrance from the Patio garden into a large hallway with staircase up to a large bright open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room with tow large windows taking in the views (ideal for seal watching), a separate bedroom with double bed and shower room.

The West Country region

This south west county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular all year round self catering holiday getaway. The North Cornwall area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Perranporth, Polzeath, St Ives and Bude filling with enthusiasts every year.

West Cornwall has a spectacular rugged coastline and an ever changing landscape. Cornwall is an all weather location that offers something for everyone.


One of Cornwall's most beautiful and peaceful holiday destinations. A traditional Cornish fishing village unspoilt, tucked away in the far west of the county.

Offering a number of quality restaurants and galleries all nestled within the original cobbled streets.

Enjoy the serene harbour at sunset as the small fleet of fishing boats return home. Once experienced, you will continue to return year after year.
