In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


A stone’s throw from Mousehole’s harbour, this apartment is ideal for couples or a small family who want to enjoy a coastal holiday.

This holiday apartment, above the owner’s restaurant, is perfect for couples looking to cosy up in the winter, walk the stunning coastal paths in spring, or laze on the beach in summer with your very own restaurant and chef on the doorstep. Sitting in the shelter of Mounts Bay, some 2½ miles from Penzance, lies the historic fishing village of Mousehole, once described by Dylan Thomas as the loveliest in England. Pronounced ’Mowzel’, the village was recorded as early as 1266, and you get a real sense of timelessness as you wander the narrow streets, while the picturesque harbour offers a sandy beach at low tide. The Boat Watch is perfect for families and also appeals to couples looking for that great get-away-from-it-all retreat, all year round. Stroll along picturesque coastal paths, laze on the glorious beaches in the summer, pick the fresh wild flowers or visit the many beautiful gardens in the area. The property offers quality accommodation, cosy and great for storm watching in the winter months. The owners run a prestigious bistro, located under the apartment and provide guests with the opportunity to experience the convenience of excellent food during their stay. There is an option to run your own tab and even have meals delivered and served in the apartment. From a full three course meal to drinks and desserts, nothing is too much trouble. The bistro has a vibrant continental feel, located on Mousehole harbour front with stunning views across Mounts Bay. There is an al fresco feel to the secluded and sheltered rear garden, ideal for a quiet drink or leisurely lunch. The area is perfect for exploring the many delights of West Cornwall and the area is renowned for its artists and crafts. Within easy reach of Newlyn, Penzance, Lands End, the famous surfing beach at Sennen, and the picturesque town of St Ives. Visit the Tate Modern or the open air romantic Minack Theatre. The Boat Watch has its own front door and private staircase which leads to the first floor apartment. The enclosed hallway and fully double glazed windows and additional sound proofing ensure the apartment is conveniently located but quiet. The Boat Watch accommodates four guests in two comfortable double bedrooms, beautifully appointed bathroom, light and comfortable open plan living room with woodburner and kitchen area with views of the harbour. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

All on first floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with wooden floor. 2 double bedrooms. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Electric heaters, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot on request. Freeview TV. DVD. CD. Electric cooker. Microwave.

    Fantastic in every respect! A little noisy, a lot of noise from restaurant below but that didn't spoil the holiday at all

    Fantastic holiday, lovely clean flat and the owner and his staff were so obliging. The only down side is the people attending the Resturant below constantly banged the door, which was a little annoying. It was so good we have booked again for next year.

    The Boat Watch was a lovely apartment, very clean and comfortable, with lovely views over the harbour. Will definitely be booking to stay again. The only downside is lack of wifi. But this won't prevent us from staying again.

    Lovely apartment in fabulous location. The equipment is basic, no washing machine or dryer which could be a problem on a long stay but for our week it didn't matter. The Bistro below was excellent and we had food sent up which was very handy.

    We had an absolutely lovely week at The Boat Watch; a lovely place, superb location, great view and sublime "2 For Street" restaurant just downstairs. Just pop in and they take care of whatever it is you need or want. Only one small remark; we would like the bed to be one size larger. My husband is very tall, zo this is rather personal and not a general comment.

    Wonderful position and very clean and well furnished. Only complaint was a lack of some kitchen equipment, e.g. no egg cups. Wished the bed in the main bedroom was kingsize.
