Set within the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mousehole is The Langley Tarne, a charming bolt-hole retreat for two. This characterful cottage is full of original features from its earlier days as a sail loft, lovingly retained including stripped wooden floorboards, sash windows and window seats. These, along with the cosy open fire place, oversized armchairs and sofas and the claw foot roll-top bath for two, make the cottage perfect for a romantic escape.

Mousehole lies 3 miles west of Penzance on the southern coast of West Cornwall. This quintessential seaside village with its narrow streets and quaint stone cottages, is a popular travel destination. Along the harbour front are a wonderful selection of galleries, gift shops and restaurants, while at low tide there is a safe, sandy beach within the harbour walls. Further nearby beaches include Porthcurno, Penzance Promenade beach and Lamorna Cove. And if a four legged friend is on holiday too, try Salt Ponds beach or Roskilly beach which are dog friendly all year round. Walk up the hill from Mousehole and discover 300 miles of beautiful coastline walks. In every season there is something magical to experience from the spring time woods and hedgerows full of wild flowers and bluebells, to the dramatic winter waves when they crash against the gigantic granite rocks rising out of the Cornish sea.

This is a charming and cozy cottage and it's location is perfect. It is a true home from home and we spend so much time in the cottage just relaxing! This was our first time in Mousehole and it is a quaint place tucked away with a lovely harbour a few gift shops, a pub and some restaurants. 2 Fore Street and The Coastguard are two lovely restaurants and we would recommend both. Back to the cottage, we found everything about it just right from it's location which was a two minute walk to the harbour front to it's comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend this cottage for a cozy couples getaway. I would come back in a heart beat.
