North Cliff, Mousehole , TR19 6PH
59) The Old Post Office
Waterfront, period Old Post Office, directly opposite two sandy beaches and the quaint harbour, this wonderful period cottage is proud to be a part of the famous Mousehole Christmas Lights – we are the cottage with the dolphin. Children absolutely love him! Watch the seals playing from the cottage windows and go to sleep to the soothing sound of the waves. Spectacular walks may be enjoyed along the coastal paths from the door.
Snuggle up in front of the wood burner set into a truly jaw-dropping granite fireplace on cooler days. On warmer days, get ready to jump on paddle boards or make sandcastles on the lovely sandy beaches just steps from the cottage or, how about a boat trip?
The Old Post Office is luxuriously equipped with a gorgeous kitchen and dining area complete with range cooker, wine cooler, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is a really lovely, charming sitting room complete with window seat, Tiffany style lights and, of course, the huge wood burner. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a very useful cloakroom.
Upstairs, one will discover a fully tiled family bathroom complete with electric shower over the bath. The king-size sleigh bed in the front bedroom has a window seat with views of unforgettable sunsets, St Clements Isle, the harbour and beach. The airy and light twin room has a cozy window seat and is spacious and inviting.
Lovely little seating area at front of cottage – sit with glass of wine in hand and watch the world go by!
