|Enchanting Star Haze is tucked away in the heart of Mousehole, a quintessential Cornish fishing village, just 300 yards from the sea, within a cluster of fisherman's cottages that nestle snugly around the harbour. Restaurants, pubs, cliff walks and art galleries are waiting to be explored from this delightful cottage. |
The living room and reading room are on the first floor of this stylish retreat making the most of the light which floods in from both ends of this open and airy space. The petite reading room captures the morning sun, snuggle up in the deep blue Alpaca throw and cuddle up on the chaise longue which offers views of the clock tower and over the rooftops to a glimpse of the sea. A writing desk is set by the window, WiFi and a phone for incoming calls and outgoing UK landlines along with a French table and chairs make this a delightful yet functional little room ideal for catching up on emails, writing your postcards or simply snoozing on a Sunday afternoon.
Through the double doors the living room window seat catches the evening sun and the thick granite wall houses a roaring wood burner that will keep you warm and toasty even if winter storms batter the harbour walls outside. The squashy sofa faces the high definition Smart TV complete with wireless keyboard and mouse, there is an iPod docking station/digital radio as well as a small collection of vintage Cornish books and some traditional games. The owner has added some of her personal collection of precious finds - a GEC metal fan, wooden theodolite lamp base and an original angle poise lamp. Both of these rooms are enhanced by atmospheric original oil paintings of Cornwall by Cornish artist Jane Searle (JaneSearle.co.uk).
The beamed kitchen is on the ground floor, entered through the little sheltered porch, with a 'Kitchen Maid' airer for your beach towels. Go through the stable door and feel the welcome of the heated stone floor which runs throughout the ground floor kitchen and bathroom to keep you super warm and toasty. Granite worktops and rustic tiles alongside modern appliances add more than a touch of luxury to this very well equipped hideaway; the washing machine is here, as is the fridge, dishwasher, microwave and electric hob and oven, not forgetting the coffee machine and the delightful T. G. Green Cornishware crockery. A table is set by the window for you to enjoy a warm, romantic meal for two in the window seat, cosy up by shutting the traditional shutters.
Star Haze has a cosy and sumptuous bedroom on the ground floor with a basement window. A king-size bed with a silk filled duvet, a vintage French linen covered bed head and quirky industrial lights with retro bulbs, crisp bed linen and some cleverly designed storage space make this a soothing retreat and a perfect place to snuggle down at the end of the day. To complete this room there is a second iPod dock/digital radio next to the bed, and a smart high definition TV, plus a selection of novels.
The en suite bathroom is luxuriously modern with full under floor heating to ensure you are lovely and warm. There is a heated warmer for your fluffy white towels and as much hot water as you can wish for to soak in the bath or for an invigorating shower after a day walking the cliffs, surfing or simply pottering around on Mousehole beach collecting shells.
Although there isn't parking at Star Haze you can do a bag drop then park your car in one of the harbourside car parks nearby..
