Description

The cottage which sleeps 4 has a large open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen, with a wood-burning stove and free Wifi throughout. Upstairs there is a bathroom and two bedrooms (these can be made up as double or twin, one with a balcony overlooking the sea). The bathroom with bath and shower sits off the passage in between. All rooms look over the sea. The kitchen is well stocked, with fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave and a cooker with hob and oven. The sitting area has a panoramic view of the ever-changing light on the ocean below, across the tiny isle of St Enys off the entrance to Mousehole harbour towards St Michael's Mount in the distance. French windows lead from the sitting room onto a small terrace with a round table and chairs and barbecue.

A short distance down the hill, as you look out to sea is the tidal sandy harbour of Mousehole. Along the coast road beyond the village lie Newlyn and Penzance and the wide sweep of Mount's Bay.

The England region

Walks
There are many good walks in the area, including the West Cornwall CoastalPath which extends right round the coast. The most immediate section is from Mousehole to Larmona (about an hour), which begins at the top of Raginnis Hill.
Walk guide from the Telegraph Website

Beaches
Within easy driving distance is the beach at Porthcurno 15 minutes by car from Carn Du, and a little further past the Minack Theatre, hidden away, is the lovely Porthchapel beach. Good for surfing is Sennen, just beyond Land's End. Gwithian is charming, just beyond Hayle on the A30 is good for surfing and walking. Also good is Porthmeor beach in St Ives. Further afield, some good surfing can be had at Watergate Bay, (with Jamie Oliver's restaurant nearby). There are several other beaches to the east, including one in Penzance. It is also possible to swim in Mousehole Harbour, which is popular with children.
Check the coastal path website for walks.

Art
The Tate at St Ives (closed Mondays) houses frequently changing exhibitions. Nearby is the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden. You can buy joint Tate/Hepworth tickets. Penlee House in Penzance has a small but fine collection of works by Cornish artists and a good programme of special exhibitions, as well as a café with outside tables. Over the years, the area has drawn many artists to live and paint. Beyond Penzance is Newlyn, Cornwall's main fishing port, where the light was so extraordinary that the Newlyn School of artists was formed. The group, led by Stanhope Forbes and Walter Langley exhibited at the turn of the century, followed later by Laura Knight.

Visit
The Tate Gallery. The Barbara Hepworth Museum, The Newlyn Art Gallery and the many galleries showing contemporary work.

The famous open-air Minack Theatre, carved into the rock face high above Porthcurno Beach is well worth a visit, even if you don't go to a production there.

There is a theatre (the Acorn) and a cinema (the Savoy) in Penzance.

Choral
The Mousehole Male Voice Choir gives regular concerts. The harbour-front newsagent's board gives good notice of when one is imminent.

Day trips
The Scilly Isles can be reached by ferry from Penzance. Or by small plane from the airport at St. Just, Lands End.

The Eden Project
The vast greenhouse domes, just off the A30 near St Austell, replicate climates from other parts of the world. Often least crowded at weekends when people are busy arriving in, or leaving, Cornwall.

Gardens
South Cornwall is renowned for its gardens, among them the Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey, one of the most famous, takes you back to pre-First World War times of near self-sufficient estates. The fruit and vegetable gardens have been restored, also the pleasure gardens and exotic jungle.

Golf
There are 18 hole courses at Cape Cornwall and Lelant, and a shorter, but scenic 18 hole course at Tregenna Castle, just outside St Ives on the road to Hayle.

Mousehole

Carn Du house and Carn Du cottage are next to one another at the top of Raginnis Hill in south west Cornwall. A quarter of a mile down a steep road to the left, as you look out to sea, is a natural sandy harbour in the middle of Mousehole. Along the coast road beyond Mousehole are Newlyn and Penzance.

From Carn Du the far reaching views extend beyond Penzance to St Michael's Mount, where in 1047, Edward the Confessor established a chapel which stands on an island in Mount's Bay. At low tide a cobbled stone causeway unfolds as the sea recedes
and leads you across to the island. Should the tide come in, a small ferryboat will return you to the mainland.

The coastline is gentle here, but becomes more rugged as you move west towards Lamorna Cove and Land's End. The coastal path follows the sea and cliffs, a 45 minute walk to the village of Lamorna, and carries on beyond and past Land's End. With its abundance of prehistoric stone monuments, this peninsula was the last part of Britain to be taken over by the Anglo Saxons from the Celts. DH Lawrence said of it: “This Cornwall is very primaeval: great, black, jutting cliffs and rocks, like the original darkness, with a pale sea breaking in, like dawn…”

It is also full of beautiful beaches. The beach at Porthcurno is 15 minutes by car from Carn Du, and beyond that, hidden away, is the lovely 3 star beach of Sennen just beyond Land's End, one of Cornwall's finest surfing beaches. Another is Gwithian. Exploring the Scillies is a ferry ride away.

“Lovely cottage in a superb location”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2014

This was a lovely cottage in a superb location. The bed was an emperor size so we felt at home. The views were superb over the coast and it was very quiet which was just what we wanted for a relaxing place to stay. The property is well located for the Lands end peninsular which is quite beautiful and a good base for some superb coastal walks. We also found the local person looking after the property for the owners most helpful.

“Tranquil with fabulous views”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

A lovely, cosy, holiday property. The beds were lovely and comfortable. The views of Mousehole harbour and the sea from the property were just stunning on a clear day. The place has also been really well stocked with kitchen utensils, crockery, glasses, etc., so you do feel very at home. Wifi super fast. It is a challenging walk back up a steep hill from dinner in Mousehole back to Carn Du Cottage in the evenings, but after amazing food at a really excellent range of restaurants in the village, you need a brisk, heart thumping walk to burn off some of the calories. Lorraine - the housekeeper was wonderfully helpful and welcoming. We shall definitely return.
