Sleep Well

The salty air of the Cornish seaside lends itself well to a good night's sleep, whatever Mousehole's seagulls might have to say.  

So we've sourced only the best beds.  Our aim: to be bombarded with requests for details of where we find them.  Such has been the case in Wales and at The Gurnard's.

Each bedroom has a view of the sea, many with nothing between it and us save our garden and a few rocks.  Some enjoy a mere glimpse, others a astonishing panorama from a top floor balcony. 

From many, the hypnotic St. Clement's Isle takes the eye, resolutely distracting one's gaze from The Lizard, St. Michael's Mount and departing fishing boats.

In each room, Roberts Radios, toiletries from Bramley Products, proper coffee and Cornish tea, soft linen and books with which to curl up on your bed.   


And Cornish art sits comfortably on our Ty Mawr lime-painted walls,  much the work of local painter Tim Hall who runs a recommended painting school just outside Mousehole.     

Breakfast looking out to sea.  A cooked Cornish Breakfast, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, fruit, local yoghurts, home made muesli, Cornish apple juice from Polgoon and home-made soda bread for you to make your own toast. 

The Sunday Sleepover

So popular, we should trademark it. Includes Sunday lunch, supper, your room and breakfast on Monday.

What could be better than kicking back after Sunday lunch and watching everyone else retreat to the Sunday night blues.

From £340 per couple at busier times, or from £280 when the Winter Escape is in place.
