    “This cottage is well equipped but facilities are dated, paintwork is grubby and kitchen cupboard doors were dirty.”

    It was surface clean but things like the cooker hood and light fittings etc were very dusty. There were cobwebs in every corner and in the main bedroom, there was a cobweb that extended across the whole width of the bed head!! The toilet bowl in the downstairs toilet leaked and had apparently been a problem for a long time looking at the faults book! ...

    It was surface clean but things like the cooker hood and light fittings etc were very dusty. There were cobwebs in every corner and in the main bedroom, there was a cobweb that extended across the whole width of the bed head!! The toilet bowl in the downstairs toilet leaked and had apparently been a problem for a long time looking at the faults book! The main reason I booked this cottage was it’s position and the views which were decidedly marred by the fact that the picture window in the lounge had blown and the telescope that was featured didn’t work either. Being health care professionals, we are very aware of the covid requirements and we didn’t consider this cottage to be covid ready. It is a shame that the owners did not take the opportunity of lockdown to address some if not all of the issues that I have outlined. This cottage is up a fairly steep bank and, along with the stairs is really not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you felt the property fell below your expectations. I have passed on comments regarding cupboard doors, cooker hood, light fittings and cobwebs to our normally excellent cleaner. She has assured me that she will pay particular attention to these areas in future. The toilet bowl has been repaired recently and the leak now appears very slow, but I have arranged for a replacement to be fitted as soon as possible. I’m afraid I was unaware of any problems with the main picture window. I have arranged a date for a specialist glazing company to come and address the issue. The telescope is unfortunately a very sensitive instrument! It does work well but does require careful focusing. We have taken the current situation with Covid very seriously indeed and can fully understand the anxieties and concerns that our guests may have which is why we have taken multiple Covid precautions at the property and these should have been outlined in an email sent before arrival. The property listing on Sykes states ‘Steep steps to front door make the property unsuitable for guests with mobility issues’. We hope to complete our usual schedule of necessary updates during the winter months and will ensure to address the areas you have highlighted. Owner relations

The property

The magnificent sea view across Mounts Bay and proximity to the village centre make Wootton Gray the perfect holiday retreat.

Within a few moments walk of the house are two small sandy beaches providing a safe play area for children and shelter for sunbathers.

Life in the fishing village of Mousehole centres around the postcard pretty harbour where colourful fishing boats are still moored.

At Christmas it is the focal point for the famous Mousehole Christmas Lights when the village is illuminated by over 7,000 bulbs.

Mousehole is an ideal location from which to explore the Lands End peninsular; walk the south west coast path, surf the waves at Sennen, learn to sail in Marazion or explore the old tin mines perched dramatically on the cliffs below Pendeen.

The white sands of Porthcurno, Porthgwarra, Sennen and St Ives should satisfy beach goers whilst garden lovers will be kept happy with a trip to Trengwainton, famous for the early spring blooms of rhododendrons and camellias. For an evening to remember, take a picnic (and a blanket) to a moonlit play the Minack Theatre but be sure to book ahead, with the glittering sea as a backdrop it is simply magical.

Built against a hillside in a quiet residential area, a flight of steps leads down to the entrance of this detached split level house.

The sunny, south-facing living room running the full width of the house has two picture windows framing Mounts Bay and the telescope provided may reward you with sightings of seals or dolphins.

With a hatch separating the well equipped kitchen from the dining area, there is a lovely open plan feel.

Downstairs is a double bedroom with its own shower room and from here there is access to the terrace and enclosed garden with a bench table for al fresco dining.

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.
