The Summer House is a unique property set in an elevated position above the picturesque harbour village of Mousehole. Mousehole is a quintessentially Cornish harbour, just a few miles west of Penzance in West Cornwall, with picture postcard harbourand a plethora of galleries, cafes, and restaurants. The property is set above the village so boasts fabulous sea views and easy walking to the harbour whilst offering an extremely peaceful location. Ideal for families, friends, children and pets.

The space
The Summer House is a unique property which has been recently extended and meticulously renovated, offering guests a luxurious home from home experience. Set in the grounds of a family home guests can benefit from a range of wonderful shared options including a beautiful swimming pool and games room, perfect for the occasionally unpredictable Cornish weather. Situated just outside Mousehole, The Summer House is an ideal location for exploring the whole of this incredible part of Cornwall.
Ground Floor – The front door leads to a spacious hallway with washing machine and a separate downstairs WC. Much of the ground floor accommodation is made up of a large and bright open plan living area which is well furnished with defined areas for eating, cooking and relaxing. The whole space is beautifully appointed with large sliding patio doors across the far wall, leading out to the private garden. The sitting area is comfortable with two sofas, arm chair and squashy bean bags, with a large wall mounted plasma screen. There is a dining area with good sized table and seating for six people and a beautifully designed kitchen at the back of the living area with plenty of storage cupboards, granite work surfaces, Belfast sink and island with three stools.
There is a large master suite on the ground floor, the bedroom is spacious with king size bed and a small sofa. The bed is a very comfortable super king size but can be split into twins if necessary (must be agreed in advance). There are double glass patio doors leading out to the decked area and garden. At the back of the room is a large ensuite shower room with double sized steam shower enclosure, WC and basin.
The flooring on the ground floor is travertine tiles with animal skin rugs throughout.
A wooden staircase leads from the kitchen area to the first floor:
The Family Suite – is an open plan room with a clever layout to create two distinct sleeping areas. To the right of the stair case is an area with two single white wooden beds and a large dressing mirror. To the left of the staircase is the spacious main sleeping area with a large super king wooden sleigh bed with hanging space behind the bed, bedside tables and a large wall mounted plasma screen. There are patio doors leading out from the room onto the first floor balcony with views of the private garden, shared family garden and swimming pool. There are sun loungers on the balcony for full relaxation! At the far end of the room is a large, beautifully presented family bathroom with freestanding bath, WC and basin, the perfect place to relax after a busy days exploring!
The Summer House is set in the grounds of a family home and has full use of the extensive gardens. There is a private garden area mainly laid to lawn with a decked area immediately outside the patio doors and flowerbeds. A small gate leads to the rest of the garden which includes a small sized grass football pitch, which can become a tennis court in the summer, a sloping lawn with table tennis table and a games room which can be used by guests, with pool table, drum kit and sofas. Between the Summer House and the main family house is a stunning outdoor “infinity” style swimming pool which the owners are happy for guests to use respectfully. The pool is heated from Easter to end of September.
There is a large gravel driveway shared between the Summer House and the family house with parking for two cars. There is also a large shed at the front of the Summer House with tumble drier and lots of space to store surf boards, wet suits, beach clobber and bicycles.
Karen and John are the incredibly welcoming owners of the Summer House and absolutely encourage the guests to make full use of all the shared facilities including the large garden, swimming pool and games room.
Dogs (Max 1) are welcome at The Summer House but must be agreed in advance and guests should be aware that Karen and John have two gorgeous female beagles living with them in the main house.

During your stay
The owners of the family house John and Karen live on site full time with their two boys and two beagles. They are incredibly welcoming and encourage guests to make full use of shared facilities but will very much respect guests privacy at all times. Anyone booking this property is asked to complete a booking form, only guests named on the booking form are allowed at the property. This is primarily due to insurance reasons but also keeps both Cherry Meadow and The Summer House the havens they were designed to be. Any alteration to this rule is at the discretion of the owners, Karen and John. Thank you for your respect in this matter.
