Cute and stunning combine at the charmingly named Foxes Bottom in glorious Mousehole. Be swept away by the spectacular sea views and calmed by the serenity of its whitewashed interiors.
What’s not to love about this cunningly curated seaside holiday home where barely a stone of luxury has gone unturned. The artful beach house feel is all consuming from the opulent glass balcony to the split level sleeping arrangements. There’s an intent to provide simple yet stunning guest accommodation that oozes the seaside vibes of its location and that little bit of luxury befitting its perch on the hillside overseeing the rest of the village. The cutely named Foxes Bottom could reflect is proximity to nearby Foxes Copse and Foxes Lane. Or it could reflect local legend that says the property’s first owner glimpsed a family of fox cubs and their bottoms at the end of the garden one day.
The open plan living area on the first floor is a wonderful family space. Through two sets of sliding doors access the deep glass balcony with outdoor sofas and barbecue. Wherever you are, whatever the weather, soak up the spectacular views across the rooftops of Mousehole and out to sea. The striking kitchen contrasts with the white and the pouring inwards light and provides everything you’ll need to prepare meals or light bites during your stay.
On the ground floor another sitting room awaits with patio doors onto the terrace and garden beyond. The terrace is perfectly set for outdoor dining and you can cast of the chill of an evening with the chiminea. The mature, landscaped gardens include perfect sunbathing spots when the beach is a wander too far. There is enclosed parking for up to four cars. A short walk down the slope brings to you the Cornish gem that is Mousehole. Renowned for its authentic fishing village vibe and adored by families for its cove-like beach, there are excellent restaurants as well as the Ship Inn, famous for sticking to its fishermans roots to this day.

Fantastic property. Very clean and everything is provided. Dressing gowns was a luxury touch. The cream tea which was awaiting us on arrival was a lovely bonus. The property was luxury all the way. I would definitely recommend this property. Mrs Andrea Booth - 7th June 2019

What can we say that hasn't been said already? The perfect house in an idyllic setting. Beach in Mousehole is perfect for little ones and the restaurant at The Old Coastguard Hotel is something very special. Beware the seagulls @ St. Ives! Thank you!!!The Pullins

All we can say is Foxes Bottom is a fantastic cottage in a fantastic location. Best we have stayed in so far in Cornwall. 5*.Fox family
Lovely house. Great to be able to see the sea and watch the boats drift by. Wuthering Heights at Minack Theatre very atmospheric! In the sea every day no matter the weather. Oh we just love it in Cornwall.The Woodmans, Hants and Atkinsons, County Clare
Thank you for a wonderful week (do we really have to leave already?) in this wonderful cottage. It has really everything you could wish for.Monika and Gerald Hahn, Frankfurt, Germany
We've had a wonderful week in this beautiful house. Summer arrived just in time for us to dine al fresco in the lovely garden with the chiminea to keep us warm when it got late! Recommend the walk to Lamorna along the coast path with lunch in the super beach cafe.Judi, Dave and friends, Bristol
A perfect house in every way - thank you! Mousehole and West Penwith worked their magic as always, and so did your wonderful house.Sue and David Davies, London
