The property

Appoximately one mile from the stunning coastal village of Mousehole, Sea Drifters Cottage makes a sublimely cute and cosy homestay within easy reach of superb beaches, resorts, coves and hot spot attractions.

Oozing bags of Cornish charm with traditional beams and a warming fire for snuggly moments, plus countryside views and distant sea glimpses from the front door, it makes a homely escape from the bustle of tourists and cars - ideal for little families, friends and couples seeking a romantic haven close to the coast.

A much desired destination all year round, Mousehole will not disappoint!

Traditional friendly inns, cafes for cream teas, restaurants, art galleries and gift shops dot the little lanes and make for a good browse, with coastal rambles and footpath follies delivering big ocean views.

The harbourside beach is sandy and offers safe and sheltered bathing.

The quay is bustling with fishing boats and excursions, watch with a coffee in hand or board a pleasure boat for a seal safari!

The famous annual 'Christmas Lights' are fabulously festive, with the ocean and beach twinkling magically and mulled wine in abundance!

Within a short drive are both Marazion and sunny Penzance town, both available by bus from the cottage, and busy with attractive streets lined with antique and craft shops, pubs and eateries for all tastes.

Landmark attraction St Michael's Mount is majestic - venture across the cobbled causeway or take the ferry boat across to this part-time castle topped isle.

The golden sand at Porthcurno Beach has a fantastic Mediterranean feel and the popular beach at Sennen with its aquamarine waters and white sands attracts the surfers, reached within a short drive/bus journey from the cottage.

Dramatic Land's End is a must visit destination and 'Poldark' country and the National Trust mines near St Just boasts the most amazing sunsets!

Back in Penzance, there are supermarkets and bakeries providing all the provisions, plus the ocean-side Jubilee swimming Pool and esplanade.

Sea Drifters Cottage is packed with personality, comfort and character; the end cottage in a little terrace nestled amidst a rural hamlet setting.

The nautically inspired sitting room is open plan with comfortable seating facing the hearth, ideal for hot chocolate dates beside a roaring fire in those cooler months.

Socialise around the dining table for pasties and board games.

The two bedrooms are country-coastal pretty and perfect for restful slumber after a day in the Cornish air.

The dinky courtyard at the rear makes a sunny haven with bistro table and chairs for lazy morning lattes and sundowner nightcaps.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.

Note: courtyard not enclosed.  Note: Maximum occupancy three adults
