Guest Reviews

The 'most wonderful and amazing holiday cottage award' goes to No.5 in Mousehole! No doubt about it. From the gorgeous setting in Cherry Garden Street, to the delightful decor, and to every special touch you find in the cottage, it is just what dreams are made of. Caroline is the most thoughtful host with an eye for details and a heart of gold. From the very moment we arrived, we felt at home and totally relaxed. It was truly one of the best times away we have had. Fresh flowers and edible treats, a great selection of books on local topics, gorgeous crockery and luxurious toiletries. I cannot rate this cottage highly enough. The bed was comfortable and the linen was soft and lovely. The cottage even smelt beautiful. If you are looking for a Cornish getaway that you will always remember - you just found it!   Lani C   April 2017

The cottage was immaculate, warm and comfortable in a perfect location for exploring Mousehole and the surrounding area. We had a perfect 4 night break over New Year and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the cottage to others. Caroline had prepared a wonderful hamper of treats and left us a lovely gift and card. Little touches that just go that extra mile.  Louise T  Dec 2016

Another lovely stay at No. 5. Really beautiful cottage, perfectly situated for the village but very peaceful. Caroline's attention to detail and all the thoughtful touches in the cottage made our stay extra special. We are looking forward to returning next year. Highly recommended.  Alison M  September 2016

Caroline's cottage is the perfect base from which to explore this dramatic and charming part of Cornwall. We chose Mousehole quite randomly but having driven through neighbouring towns, it offers the best balance between small maritime village/good restaurants (we tried the Old Coast Guard and 2 Fore Street, both excellent). The cottage is really cosy, well kept and tastefully designed. Caroline's extra touches of prosecco, chocolates and other Cornish treats on arrival made us feel really welcome, as did the fresh flowers in room. Would definitely come back! Dylan H  March 2016

What a stunning cottage and what an amazing owner! We have just returned from what was, for the most part, a wonderful stay in Mousehole. No. 5 is simply stunning. The location is perfect, and the cottage itself is full of character, has everything that one needs, is supremely comfortable and is very tastefully and sensitively furnished and decorated. It has such a homely feel as soon as you walk through the door. When we arrived it was dark and rainy, but we were welcomed with flowers, prosecco, strawberries, milk and Cornish cheeses in the fridge, plus a basket of other goodies in the kitchen, and once we were settled in with the woodburner lit we knew we were in for the relaxing break that we both needed. The owner, Caroline, clearly cares about her tenants having the best experience possible: communication is superb, and nothing is too much trouble. This was never more evident than at the end of the holiday when my husband had an unfortunate accident in Mousehole. Caroline could not have shown more care or understanding, and on top of that provided much appreciated help as we were moving out. Mousehole itself is stunning. As regular visitors to Cornwall, this has to be one of our favourite places. Its harbour is glorious, and the village relatively unspoilt. There is everything that one needs and is very friendly, with beautiful coastal walks. We can't wait for our next stay at No. 5. Although there are a number of lovely properties in Mousehole, this is the place for us. Thank you, Caroline, for everything. Your cottage is glorious and you are a great person!  Angela K  Feb 2016

We arrived in Mousehole on a slightly rainy autumn day; the moment we set foot in no. 5 Cherry Gardens we felt our everyday cares dissipate as we were enveloped in the calm tranquility of the cottage. It is elegant and cosy. After a preliminary exploration of Mousehole we settled down with mugs of tea and complimentary Cornish biscuits upstairs, from where you can enjoy beautiful sea views. Many thoughtful touches had been left for us by the owner, Caroline, that really allowed for a wonderfully relaxing time away. Our little dog, Bertie, was also made very welcome and he especially enjoyed his home-baked treats and long walks up behind the cottage where the views across St Michael's Bay are breathtaking. No. 5 is very comfortable, exceptionally stylish and has more than everything you need for a sumptuous stay. I can only reiterate what others have said in their reviews - it was difficult to leave, and it is high on our list of favourite places to stay. We very much hope to visit again soon. Thank you Caroline for all your hard work and making our  stay so special., I wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending this cottage.  Amy P. Sept 2015
