This pretty 18th cent cottage in Mousehole is Grade II listed and can sleep five people in three bedrooms.

Mural Cottage is a Grade II listed, 18th century former fisherman's cottage in the pretty harbour village of Mousehole, just 200 yards from the shops and eateries on the harbour. This traditional Cornish cottage is set over three floors and sleeps up to five people. On the second floor, there is one double bedroom and a pretty twin room which has glimpses of the sea over the rooftops.

On the ground floor is the sitting room with a fun feature mural from which the cottage takes its name, and a single bedroom. Finally on the lower ground floor you'll find a spacious kitchen with dining area, the family bathroom and a separate cloakroom. Outside you can load and unload the before parking in a car park 200 yards away.


Basic, uncomfortable, forgettable.
This is a case of lots of small irritations accumulating into a deal breaker. We stayed for about 2 weeks, after a while we all realised that it was actually quite a dour little place. It's on three floors and the bottom stairs are a bit lethal so watch your step, if you are taller than 6ft watch your head. The kitchen has no window, and even though it was well equipped, it was difficult to use. None of the pans are non-stick.There is a washing machine, everything was there except washing power. The most irritating thing was after the wash I realised there was no clothes horse only a small radiator airer which didn't work, so pants and nickers were on every heater in the house! The heaters are difficult to use with digital displays, so many times we arrived home to a cold damp house. The carpets were functional and tired with various stains and marks. Modern sofas with miserly cushions. Cheep room scent is a no no. The TV remotes didn't work. The bedroom (all very dated) pillows were flat and basic. This for me is a massive deal breaker, when away from home the very least everyone should expect is a good nights sleep. on the whole not a wonderful experience, its obvious that Sykes own this as it lacks a human touch.

Great family cottage in Mousehole.
Great spacious 3 bed cottage in central Mousehole. Cosy lounge with new comfy sofas and internet tv and WiFi (no phone signal). Well kitted out kitchen diner and 2 large bedrooms upstairs with very comfortable beds. Shower/bath seems new and a single bedroom off the lounge. Cupboards/wardrobes not used as smelt musty. A hairdryer would have been nice! You can drive to drop off, load and unload outside but parking in peak season is challenging. Harbour car parks are usually full at ?3 24 hours or for ?9 for 24 hours you can park up the road. Bin day is Wednesday. All of the road bring their bins to outside mural cottage so Tuesday night the flies and smell was not pleasant then Wed morning at 8:00am the bin men arrived shouting and emptying all the bins right outside the lounge and main bedroom window. The caretaker decided to just let herself into the cottage the night before we were due to leave without knocking or checking first whilst we were still there. Despite leaving a message to find out why she would think this is acceptable there has been no contact or apology. Finally the properties out the back are being renovated so if you are planning to stay in for a quiet day then don't!! If this is to be used for a base in a beautiful location then it's a good price, wonderful location with great facilities in the cottage.
