    In particular all credit to the cleaner(s) who did an incredible job making the place immaculate however if there are to be constructive criticism then here goes (a) a few bins for the recycling would be helpful - we ended up using the next door neighbours bins instead (b) the fold up wooden chairs in the kitchen were incredibly uncomfortable after half an hour - and we are not fat people (c) some information on setting the wall heaters - they seem to be stuck on a default low setting (d) the complementary bottle of chilled white wine in the fridge whilst appreciated was refreshingly disgusting ! Having said that I am very happy with how the week went, highly recommend the cottage, the village of Mousehole and all praises to Sykes holidays. x

    Thank you for taking the time to leave to leave your review and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Nook. The owners will certainly review the information folder to ensure that instructions for the heaters are included (these should be in the kitchen drawer). The refuse for the property is removed and sorted by a local company. We do hope you'll choose The Nook next time you are booking a Cornish break. Property Owner

The property

In the popular fishing village of Mousehole near Penzance, The Nook is the perfect hideaway for a romantic break in Cornwall.

With exposed brick and beams, The Nook’s original features provide an abundance of character, with its modern appliances merging tradition with a more modern feel.

Set in close proximity to local amenities and foodie restaurants, olde-worlde pubs, harbour, beaches and scenic coast-path, couples will enjoy an array of activities on your doorstep.

Downstairs, cosy up in the double bedroom.

Painted white for a contemporary twist, the exposed brick work creates an atmospheric stay, with storage provided for added convenience.

The contemporary décor flows into the en-suite bathroom, which houses a walk-in shower.

Upstairs, find a fully fitted out kitchen, perfect for some home cooking, which can be enjoyed on the dining table provided.

In addition to the cooking appliances is a coffee machine and wine cooler, as well as laundry facilities.

In the open-plan space is also a relaxing lounge area.

Nearby is the Mousehole Wild Bird Hospital.

Wildlife lovers will enjoy a visit to the hospital, which cares for injured birds before either rehoming them or returning them to their natural habitat.

Delve into Mousehole’s fishing history by trying the local produce of 2 Fore Street Restaurant; with views looking out to sea, the restaurant specialises in seafood.

Visit the Tremenheere sculpture gardens.

Ideal for those who are green-fingered, the gardens house an impressive collection of plants, as well as some unique artwork.

For many, the draw of Cornwall is the surfing locations.

Head over to St Ives, Sennen or Penwith beaches to try surfing or bodyboarding.

About the location

MOUSEHOLE

Penzance 4 miles; St Ives 12 miles.

A delightful fishing village nestled on a hillside and spilling down to the shore. The picturesque harbour, surrounded by its maze of winding narrow streets, draws visitors from miles around, while in the distance St Michael's Mount stands proudly in the centre of Mounts Bay. A fabulous coastline and miles of spectacular walking characterise the area, with seabirds, seals and wild headlands leading just around the corner to Land's End. The Minack cliff-top theatre is a few miles along the coast, while reminders of the region's ancient past in the form of Dolmens and standing stones appear everywhere. St Ives, with its stunning beaches, beautiful harbour and narrow winding streets is just 12 miles away.
