Very Good

“Wonderful holiday cottage”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2019

We recently stayed at Little Dorrit - it’s a gorgeous clean and cosy cottage filled with interesting objects and very well equipped for a family holiday. It was a lovely place to come back to after a long day out. It’s right by all the local amenities (shops, restaurants & bus stop) and of course the little beach and harbour - perfect if you have young kids. Mousehole is gorgeous and a good base to get around west Cornwall. Only downsides for us (but not of major concern) were the intermittent WiFi and the mattress in main room is softer than we are used to but the beds in the second room were perfect. Thank you Patricia for your warm welcome and the goodies you left for us on arrival, they were much appreciated. We loved our stay in your cottage and hope to be back one day. (Ps my little boy counted 21 clocks in the cottage)

“Super Cottage”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2019

Wonderful location, easy access to everything in the village, carnival was on so lots of locals. Weather was super till Thursday then the storm came but it was a great place to be stranded.

Owner's reply: Thank you Nigel & Kate for your very kind comments about Little Dorrit. It was a great pleasure to meet you on your arrival and you were the perfect guests. Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy it was perfect. Kind regards Patricia

“Character with comfort”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2019

This place has clearly been furnished with a lot of love. No bland neutrals here! However it’s modern where you need it The WiFi’s good, the beds are really comfy and the cooker and telly are modern. Great location a step from the harbour for those early morning swims and no noise that we noticed from the ship inn a few doors down. If you haven’t been before, Mousehole is Enid Blyton idyllic. Thoroughly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind comments about Little Dorrit. A lovely family, great communication on arrival and a pleasure to have you all at the cottage. Thanks again Patricia

“Interesting place”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2017

You can see the harbour from the bathroom. The cottage harbours many curiosities. Modern kitchen and bathrooom though. Very comfortable and pleasant stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It was a pleasure to have you stay - Many thanks. Patricia

“Wonderful Place”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

A fantastic part of the world to visit, Mousehole is a stunning harbour village and the Little Dorrit cottage was a lovely cosy cottage right on the harbour surrounded by fascinating little streets, galleries, shops and a pub. The sandy beach was a surprise and we even swam in the sea. We had a relaxing time based in Little Dorrit which was clean and just as described, the welcome pack and greeting was fabulous, thank you.
