If you are looking for an old style, traditional Cornish cottage then look no further. Bellas Mouse is a characterful three-bedroom and three reception room cottage with a self-contained one bedroom annex and a garage and parking. This is a fabulous option for extended families who want to holiday together but would like the option of having some independence.
Found in the old heart of Penryn, just a mile from Falmouth, this vibrant historic waterside town has a range of pubs and eateries including a great fish and chip shop.
Enter through a gate in the wall into a private courtyard with stable doors into the main cottage and the annexe. The annexe has a studio room which has a kingsize bed, an en-suite bathroom and self-contained kitchen, which has access to the garden. The main cottage is delightfully quirky! The two main reception rooms and the two main bedrooms are dual aspect, and the exterior doors are all partly or fully glazed. This allows for the light to make the most of the cottage’s character and shows off the thick and curving walls, typical of a property of this era. This includes low door frames upon which you may bang your head. The kitchen leads out into a little walkway courtyard with steps up to the garden. From the dining room there are steps up to the stairs and down to a cloakroom and a utility room with a door out to the garden. The garden is lovely and private with water views and glimpses over the Falmouth estuary. Bellas Mouse is an old property built on different levels. It has many original features, including low narrow doorways and passages. There are small steps to some of the downstairs living rooms and upstairs to the bedrooms. The stairs to the bedrooms are quite steep and there is no hand rail. Feedback from some guests have cautioned that for anyone with depth perception problems or for those with limited mobility or with young children, the stairs and steps can be disconcerting. The back garden is quirky, quite small and terraced with changes of level and there are steps to access it from the cottage. Shute Lane is typically Cornish; steep and narrow thus making access to the cottage and garage tricky in places.
There is a garage for parking up the lane from the cottage and a second small car can fit in front of the garage doors. The garage is perfect for storing water sports equipment, bikes etc, the owner has provided a hose that can be used to wash down wetsuits. On arrival and departure, it is fine to pull down the lane to quickly unload into the courtyard. The cottage is just a few minutes’ walk from the train station and has excellent public transport links to Falmouth.
