Tucked away in the historic fishing village of Mousehole on the charming Jamaica Terrace, it has been carefully refurbished to retain all of it’s wonderful Grade II listed features.
It’s the perfect escape for a couple seeking relaxation, great reading spots and an ideal location for both pottering locally and exploring the wonders of West Cornwall (you can ask us about these, we really do love this corner of the country!).
Weave and wander your way through the web of streets in Mousehole, Jamaica Terrace is tucked back on a very quiet terrace that enjoys sea views over the rooftops. Built in 1835 by Henry Wright, a shipwright who traded in Jamaica, hence the name.
You’ll have a great selection of places to eat, drink and explore by foot. The Ship Inn for a pint of Cornish ale, The Old Coastguard for excellent food or a drink with a view, or one of the many excellent highly regarded galleries nestled in the village.
Walk into Jamaica Terrace and you’ll instantly feel the history. There are so many original features from the range in the kitchen, panelling in the bathroom and floors.
On the ground floor there is a recently fitted kitchen, dining space and washing machine. To the front of the house is the lounge with wood burning stove, sofa, table and chairs and a superb view over roof tops to the sea and St Clement’s Isle.
The stairs are steep and narrow, as you’d expect in an old cottage such as this, you’ll find the master bedroom and bathroom. With big sash windows the master bedroom is lovely and light and enjoys excellent sea views, even from the bed… Literally wake up and enjoy the view.
The large bathroom has a roll top bath with overhead shower, careful paint choices and original wood panelling making this one of our favourite rooms in the property.
One of the recent modernisations is a sprinkler system on the ground floor.
