This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Cornish village of Mousehole, close to the beach and perfect for family seaside break.

The Old Studio is a delightful character property with a private parking space. This well-presented holiday conversion adjoins the owner’s home and provides an idyllic for couples to relax in at any time of year, or alternatively, for families looking for the perfect summer retreat. It is also conveniently located for exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall.
This large, sympathetically converted artist’s workspace has high ceilings and windows offering guests accommodation of immense character and style. This is a stunning property that has been restored to provide a lovely sense of light, space and tranquillity. It nestles in the very heart of the village, and is only minutes from the beautiful harbour and small sandy beach. The garden gate leads into the pretty and enclosed private patio, then through French doors into the conservatory and on into the split-level accommodation which is accessed down three steps into a large, open-plan living space.
Catch a daily boat trip to see the local sea life, or take a fishing trip. Mousehole is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday, with its pretty, winding streets full of busy little galleries, restaurants and shops and is just a short drive away from the delightful fishing harbour of Newlyn. Alternatively, why not visit the popular town of Penzance with its long promenade and open-air lido, or the historic town of Marazion with St Michaels Mount rising from the sea, as well as the long, glorious beach of Mounts Bay. Lands End, St Ives, The Minack Theatre and the famous surfing beach at Sennen Cove are all close by. Take a day trip over to the beautiful Isles of Scilly by boat from Penzance, or the sky bus from the nearby Land’s End airport. The beach is less than 200 yards. Shop, pub and good restaurants less than 300 yards.

    Wonderful place to stay. We have stayed several times in this studio and it never disappoints. A stunning location too.

    Really quirky place, full of character in an ideal position in Mousehole. Quite tricky to find and could do with a sign on the wall. Parking was a plus but quite tight if you have a big car. Only downside was the main bedroom was damp and could be quite smelly. The main bedroom was also located a little way from the other bedroom which wasn't ideal with young children.

    Had a lovely stay at the old studio. I know the area well from living there as child so knew my way around. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. Wifi came in handy and the welcome goodies were lovely. I would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely stay again. I’d highly recommend the Kings Arms in Paul for food and a quiet drink! Short walk up Paul Hill. Only thing I’d comment/ask for is a ‘comments’ book to leave a ‘thanks’ to the owners and feedback from our stay to be in the cottage. Even my children wanted to say thanks.

    A charming studio that is well designed and situated in the loveliest village of Cornwall. The two bathrooms with showers and washing machine were a big plus! Beds are comfortable. Space is open, sun drenched with good flow of air. Garden and terasse were a treat and owners very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

    Beautiful space, light and airy, but lovely warm heated floor. Crisp sheets and comfortable pillows. Little courtyard was a sun trap when the sun came out, even in March!

    We had a great stay in the Old Studio. The Open plan living space is unusual for a cottage in Cornwall I think, but worked well for our family of 5. It was light and bright but also nice and warm for a cold February. The kitchen has everything you need and there was a tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, etc, to welcome us. The beds were comfortable with thick duvets. A great location 5 minutes from the harbour and the parking space is very handy too. Mousehole has some nice cafes and restaurants.
