Experience - The Area...

With uninterrupted views of the sea across Mounts Bay to the Lizard, this light and comfortable property is the entire upper level of a detached house set back from the road leading into the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole, only 200 yards from the harbour and local amenities.

The village is less than five minutes walk with a selection of small shops, restaurants and pubs and directly opposite the cottage is a public footpath with steps leading down to the rockpools below with a stoney beach and children's sea water bathing pool revealed at low tide. Newlyn and Marazion are only a short drive and can be reached by hoppa bus if preferred, and Penzance, 3 miles, is the gateway to the Isles of Scilly.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Entered from the shared driveway where there is parking for one car, a sloping lane leads up to the front door which opens beneath a covered porch into an entrance hallway with a coats area. To the left is a spacious kingsize double bedroom with lovely sea views, an adjacent bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath, and to the right of the hall a door leads through to a smartly fitted kitchen with New England style units and a breakfast bar with high stools. On the far side is a light and airy twin bedded room with dual aspect windows overlooking the sea and coastline.

From the breakfast area, two steps lead down to a bright and sunny living room with stripped wood flooring, an exposed granite wall, comfortable seating and a pine dining suite, all of which have panoramic views of the sea and St Michaels Mount from five large windows. In one corner of the room, a glazed door opens out to a small timber balcony with balustrade and glorious sea views.

The property is in a wonderful location. Just outside of Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole. To have parking at the property was brilliant and our view from the living room was truly break taking. Our immediate aspect is of seal island so many a morning was spent watching the seals through the window. If you're up early enough you'll see one or two venture from their island over to the shore..and I was also lucky enough to see wild dolphins jumping through the water on two occasions, which was a very special sight. The property is within walking distance of Mousehole..there are some lovely shops and I highly recommend making The Ship Inn your local. The food, service and staff are brilliant and the pub itself has original features.There are steps just outside the property that take you down by the shoreline so you can walk into Mousehole by this route rather than the street way, which is great. Down the road is Newlyn where you can get boat trips around the coast..these are also available from Penzance. We would recommend Cormorant Cruises run by Mike. He's knowledgeable about the area and a lovely man. We went for an hour and would highly recommend his trips. In Penzance you have a whole host of shops, restaurants and bars. I love the Dolphin pub as it's very traditional looking, and is local to the shops. If you're looking for beaches..Praa sands are wonderful. Good facilities and places to get food and the parking was cheap too, but go early to get a spot. Sennen is lovely too, as is Porthcurno. If you're after culture then you have to visit the Minack Theatre - We've been twice and loved it both times with the sun set. Lands End is great (I personally didn't like the First/Last Inn pub which is located close by.) We went on a Thursday night to see the fireworks and have to say it was lovely. Just sitting on the rocks watching the sunset was theatre enough to be fair so the fireworks were just a nice ending to the evening. In terms of the property itself. It is perfect for a family of four. We didn't want for any - Miss E Pemberton
"Third time for us in Carveth, a wonderful cottage. Unlike last year with snow, this year was wall to wall sunshine, the views from the five sitting room windows over Mounts Bay were breathtaking. Carveth has everything with level entry and on site parking, carrying luggage is so easy, within 20 minutes we felt at home drinking tea looking first at the beautiful flowers on the table then the magnificent view. The audio system is excellent, the comfortable chairs great, the large flat screen TV is brilliant, the beds most comfortable, all in tastefully decorated surroundings, what more could one ask for? Hopefully we shall soon be back again. " Mr J Callard
"Booking this property twice each year says it all. " Mrs D Hancock
"Lovely views and very convenient to beach and shops. " Mrs N Bowen-Scale
"Perfect apartment, perfect setting." Mr L Ellaby
"Excellent location, beautiful view from lounge and on site parking, which is a bonus. We will be back!" Mr P Henshaw
"We so much enjoyed our stay again this year, even though it snowed and the temperatures were subzero most of the time it was still warm and cosy. With Carveth situated just a few yards from the water's edge, the clear, unobstructed panoramic sea and harbour views are breathtaking in all weathers, we saw seals very close, gannets diving to catch fish and waves crashing on the rocks below. We love the decorations which are so tasteful and relaxing. It is extremely quiet and peaceful in this property, the facilities are also excellent, including comfortable beds, relaxing seating and with everything and more than one requires for a really good holiday." Mr J Callard
"Carveth is an unchanging slice of delight and comfort." Mrs D Hancock
"Thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas break here despite the weather. All the comforts of home were here. The views fantastic." Mrs I Edwards
"Our favourite holiday property in Cornwall. Warm, clean and comfortable." Mrs D Hancock
