We stayed in Cheryl's lovely flat over new years eve 2017, and it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, which was somewhere cosy and comfortable for us to spend warm evenings together as a couple.
The location is ideal - a 30 second walk from the harbour of one of the most beautiful fishing villages in the UK. Mousehole offers a great restaurant, a couple of good tea rooms and pubs, and a fantastic local deli and great nature walks. You're a ten minute drive from penzance and it's the perfect base to explore the most beautiful corner of cornwall. Mousehole has wonderful harbour lights over christmas which the whole region comes to see turn on, which did however make parking a little challenging.
The flat itself is small but very well laid out, with a comfortable sofa and living area, a small dining table and a well equipped kitchen. The bed is large and very comfortable, and having a real bath was a treat for us. Cheryl keeps the flat in impeccable condition, and there was a bottle of prosecco and some chocolate biscuits to great us when we arrived.
This is a flat to disconnect in. There is no wifi and the phone signal is very patchy, so if you can't cope with being offline this isn't for you. But we embraced the tech detox and enjoyed board games, dvd's and lazy dinners in our lovely new warm home from home. There are loads of books and local area guides on the shelves, and the neighbourhood is peaceful and friendly. The only other downside is the lack of a view of the harbour from the flat itself, but taking into account the price, this place is a real find. We will definitely be returning.
2 The Net Loft is just a few yards from the beautiful harbour of Mousehole. First impressions were stunning; not only is this place immaculate and well equipped, there was even a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge and a box of shortbread to make you feel truly welcomed.
There is more than enough space. We loved the open plan lounge / kitchen / diner which meant we could spend lots of time together even when one was cooking and the other was watching Master & Commander - Yep, there's even a DVD player with a collection of films to watch and an i-Pod dock - You want for nothing whilst staying here.
We slept really well, this was late October in an old building but it was warm, cosy and comfortable throughout our stay. The bathroom is also all you could want with a full-size bath and a good shower in a good size room.
Whilst Mousehole is undoubtedly beautiful, there is so much more to see within a few miles. We were only there 4-nights but still managed to fit in Land's End, The Milack Theatre (Highly recommended), the village of Paul, Newlyn, Penzance, St. Michael's Mount, Lamorna Bay and walks on the South-West Coastal Path.
For walkers the path to Lamorna is suitably muddy and challenging - Take your boots. For runners, the run to Penzance war-memorial is 5K giving a 10K round run, mostly flat and away from the road on the promenade and coastal path.
We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to anyone wanting a relaxing place to enjoy a break and / or see the sights.
Just returned from over a wonderful stay at the Net Loft!
The harbour and quaint village of Mousehole is all on the doorstep of this fabulous little apartment. Friendly and a great location for exploring the surrounding area.
Full of character and warmth this well arranged apartment was clean and comfortable and provided everything we needed and more for a home from home stay. It's little bespoke kitchen and built in wardrobe made full use of all space and It has a bright and airy feel with sun shine throughout the day.
On arrival welcome toiletries, milk, Prossecco, Shotbread and freshly picked flowers were included.
In addition the excellent correspondence and assistance I received from Cheryl when I found I had to move the week I booked was second to none. Minimal fuss, her kindness was very much appreciated and we managed to arrange an extra couple of days too! Thankyou.
We most definately hope to return.
The Netloft is perfectly positioned in the quaint village of Mousehole. The village itself has brilliant shops selling handmade goods as well as a corner shop that stocks essencials and a post office. At least 4 galleries are also located in the village, making the location great for the art enthusiast. The Netloft itself has everything you need for a great stay. A ridiculously comfy bed and the stained glass window were highlights for me and my girlfriend. For a longer stay, the washer/dryer comes in handy and is greatly appreciated! We loved the biscuits and bottle of prosecco that greeted us along with some lovely toiletries. It is obvious that Cheryl, Ken and Helen take very good care of the property. The addition of a bath was also great for someone like me who is too lazy to stand up in the shower twice a day! Also brilliant to rest the aching legs after a long day of walking. A shower is also available for those who prefer it. However, it was slightly temperamental which is the only thing letting the Netloft down a tad. Despite this, the cottage is perfect and very romantic. It allows you to be close to the town of Penzance but far enough away to escape the business of day to day life. Cell service is limited in the village but I don't see this as a bad thing. It's great to escape for a while and just take time away wth someone special. I would recommend the Netloft to anyone at all and I can't wait to be back!
Right in the heart of Mousehole. All amenities within walking distance. Lovely accommodation with everything you would need. Clean/tidy. Lots of nice little touches, bottle of Prosecco, shortbread, tea, coffee etc.
