“what a hidden treasure”

I found this cottage on this website and booked for June 2012. I was with my husband, son and daughter-in-law. We had a warm welcome from Pat the owner when we arrived. Pat had fresh strawberries and clotted cream and a loaf of fresh baked bread on our arrival. We were able to unload the car a few yards away from the cottage and then go park the car over on the harbour carpark. The carpark is £3. If you leave the car there, you only pay the once. If you go out during the day, you pay £3 on your return........If however, you return after 5pm, the chap is not there to collect your money, so you just park.
The cottage is a really interesting place to stay. Lots of nooks and crannys, all mod cons, washing machine and dryer, fridge/freezer, microwave, TV with freeview in the lounge and a TV in each bedroom. Plenty of eating and cooking stuff. Crisp clean bed linens and fresh towels all prepared for us.
The cottage was as central as you could get to the little village and I loved being so close to the sea watching tides come in and out. Penzance was only a few miles away and as you have to go through it to get to Mousehole, I would recomend that you get your shopping from the Tesco or Morrison supermarkets en-route.

“Little Dorrit is a Delight!”

This seaside cottage was everything we had hoped for. The Owners have gone above and beyond our expectations. The people of this charming fishing village were friendly and we felt right at home here. Although the cottage does not have internet, it was a blessing in disguise. When we needed to re-connect with loved ones and for business we just popped next door to The Ship Inn and were able to use their Wi-Fi. Great food too! By the end of our stay we truly hated to leave. We would highly recommend Little Dorrit. A charming little cottage by the sea.

“Not to be overlooked”
Reviewed 1 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed for a weeks holiday (just two of us). This cottage has two double rooms but it is ideal for a couple, as the cottage is in keeping with the houses of it's time - small Cornish fishing village. If you have small children then the 2nd bedroom is good for them. The cottage couldn't be better located - right in the harbour (you can see the harbour from the bathroom), within spitting distance of the local Ship Inn pub (but not near enough to ever hear it), within a 4 minute walk to two great restaurants and a stones throw to a few sandy beaches.

The owner Pat greets you and is very welcoming and the standard of cottage is excellent. You have everything you need right on your door step. No off street parking but you can find spaces very easily in the three car parks near by (all within a 2 minute walk to the front door of the cottage).

This cottage should not be overlooked as a great relaxing self catering break!
