Description from owner


Standing proud on our romantic Poldark coastline, Seal Point is a unique, very spacious waterfront house on the edge of the historic village of Mousehole. It 'gives kindly' to all its guests, however large (up to 12) or small the party (2-6). Come for Easter, Summer or a fabulous old-fashioned Christmas with the famous Mousehole Christmas Lights. Over 20 reviews and more info on, ref 1055858.

Seal Point Villa in a nutshell:

* full sea views from nearly every room

* very good beds and linen incl 1 Super King and 2 Kings

* 4 mins walk from sandy sheltered beaches

* direct waterfront access

* safe gated garden, toys, books

* rockpools at the end of the gated garden, seals, wildlife

* BT infinity wifi

* outside shower

* parking for 2 cars

* prices quoted: for 6, for additional up to 10/11, please ask

We have regular guests who come every year as party of 4 to enjoy the space and views. Then there are larger family groups who come with up to 12 people, using all five bedrooms four bathrooms and two lounges. The house lends it self well to many sizes and configurations. Please ask about special rates for parties of four or less.

Whether you’re a family of 4 or 6 looking for a seaside home from home or a larger inter-generational group of up to 12, Seal Point will help you create those magical Cornish holiday memories, that so many of us cherish from childhood. Large rooms and hallways and a separate attic flat sleeping up to four mean it's easy for everyone to have their own space but enjoy being together.

With sea views from 4 out of 5 bedrooms and the lounge, dining room and kitchen, with large comfortable beds, four bathrooms (plus a downstairs wc and warm outside shower), parking, wifi, a safe garden, toys and books on hand, we hope the different members of any party will find their needs met. We are fussy ourselves when we go away, so know how important the different elements can be. Please do not hesitate to ask any specific questions.

Seal Point has been our much loved family home which is now prepared and let while we are away. Many bookings happen now by word of mouth but we also advertise here and on When we are away a professional changeover team manages the house and my mother lives nearby to welcome and help with queries.

Our prices are quoted for six people sharing with additional charge for extra people up to 12. Please enquire and if possible give the constellation of your party (eg couples, singles etc). Thank you.

So..what's it like to live here?

Sip Nespresso and munch cream teas on the terrace while the children play on the climbing fort in the large contained garden. Watch sea birds, seals, old luggers and sometimes dolphins from the living room. With over 250 m2 there is space for everyone.

The garden has private access to the sea 40m away and you can then walk 3-5 minutes to the fine restaurants, cafes and galleries of 500 year old Mousehole and the sandy beaches of the small harbour which is perfect for swimming with children. Being so close to the clean sandy harbour beaches, it's perfect for bright sparks to go to the beach while others enjoy a lazy breakfast on the terrace or indeed for tired little ones to come home for naps while older siblings play for hours in the safe waters. Mousehole harbour is one of the few places where you can mess about in inflatables in relative safety (always supervise, of course).

Golf courses with sea views are 15-20 minutes' drive away at St Just and Praa Sands.

By car or bus, you can discover the Minack theatre, many other beaches including Sennen, Praa Sands, St Ives, St Michael's Mount etc all 3-10 miles away. On foot we have the famous cliff paths, all the way to Land's End and beyond. For relaxation book our excellent mobile masseuse at £40-50 for 60-90 mins

'This is a house like no other. It’s like being on an island but with civilization just yards away. The garden is so relaxing with children and inside there are plenty of toys and books. And oh, waking up to those views!' Sam and Jim, August 2012

Shops, transport, distances: Mousehole is 3 miles from Penzance and 1.5 miles from the fishing village of Penzance. You can walk (or scooter!) to Newlyn along the coastal path in 30 minutes and Penzance in an hour. Bikes can be hired in Pz.

Mousehole has 4 restaurants, 3 cafes, 2 ice cream shops, a fish and chip shop, the pub The Ship, a grocery shop with fresh bread, numerous galleries and all the charm of the storybooks.

In Newlyn you'll find a small supermarket, fresh fish shops - minutes from the trawlers (including the largest privately owned fleet in UK), 2 bakers, a butchers, cafes etc. The harbour also provides the most suitable moorings for yachts, from £12+ a nt.
