Full description
A boutique seaside cottage with a self-contained bedroom suite, charmingly positioned in the picture-perfect Cornish village of Mousehole.

Famous for its creative hubbub, quirky streets, and relaxed, timeless beauty, Mousehole is regularly cited as one of the most picturesque spots Cornwall has to offer. 

In fact, the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas spent his honeymoon there in 1937, declaring it as "quite the loveliest village in England".

Back then, Harbour Edge formed part of the Lobster Pot Hotel, which was chosen by the honeymooners to stay in. These days, it's an elegant boutique cottage with mesmerising harbour views, set in front of the only pub in town!

Sleeping up to six guests, the cottage is an idyllic haven for a group of friends or family in search of supreme seaside relaxation. Not only does it boast some of the best views of the harbour, but the beach is right on your doorstep.

Inside, you can expect deep sofas, soft-toned décor, stylish accessories, and all the holiday luxuries you could possibly need.  By evening, curl up in the lounge with a DVD from the owners' collection... that is, if you ever tire of those harbour views from the picture window!

When hunger strikes, there's a gorgeous eat-in kitchen, complete with an electric ceramic hob, a Neff oven... and that all-important dishwasher. Need to wash your ‘beachy' clothes? The utility room comes equipped with a handy washer/dryer.

Meanwhile, there are three dreamy bedrooms to choose from.  The master double features huge windows, and an en-suite with a gleaming copper-and-tin bathtub - a luxurious link to Cornwall's mining heritage. You'll find a cosy twin room at the back of the cottage, complete with a ‘hidden' wardrobe and a refreshing en-suite shower room.

But if you've been craving connection with your loved ones, yet you still want a slice of privacy, the Seaside Suite is your personal heaven. Accessed from the private terrace, there's a seriously special kingsize bed to curl up in, an en-suite shower room to freshen up in, and a well-equipped kitchenette to whip up snacks in.

How to spend your days? Well, you could start by simply curling up with a good book on the terrace, occasionally looking up to watch boats glide in and out of the sparkling harbour.

Or you could take a wander through those eclectic, bustling streets, with their elegant art galleries, independent shops, and irresistible coffee stops. There are regular markets that showcase local craft and produce, and during winter, the village is famous for its twinkling lights, which are reason enough to pay a visit!

If you feel like travelling further afield, just hop in the car to access some of Cornwall's most loved attractions, including Land's End and St. Michael's Mount.

(Though we don't think you'll feel much like travelling anywhere soon, once you've experienced the blissfully slow, impossibly scenic pace of life at Harbour Edge).
