The Boat Watch description

This holiday apartment, above the owner’s restaurant, is perfect for couples looking to cosy up in the winter, walk the stunning coastal paths in spring, or laze on the beach in summer with your very own restaurant and chef on the doorstep. Sitting in the shelter of Mounts Bay, some 2½ miles from Penzance, lies the historic fishing village of Mousehole, once described by Dylan Thomas as the loveliest in England. Pronounced ’Mowzel’, the village was recorded as early as 1266, and you get a real sense of timelessness as you wander the narrow streets, while the picturesque harbour offers a sandy beach at low tide. The Boat Watch is perfect for families and also appeals to couples looking for that great get-away-from-it-all retreat, all year round. Stroll along picturesque coastal paths, laze on the glorious beaches in the summer, pick the fresh wild flowers or visit the many beautiful gardens in the area. The property offers quality accommodation, cosy and great for storm watching in the winter months. The owners run a prestigious bistro, located under the apartment and provide guests with the opportunity to experience the convenience of excellent food during their stay. There is an option to run your own tab and even have meals delivered and served in the apartment. From a full three course meal to drinks and desserts, nothing is too much trouble. The bistro has a vibrant continental feel, located on Mousehole harbour front with stunning views across Mounts Bay. There is an al fresco feel to the secluded and sheltered rear garden, ideal for a quiet drink or leisurely lunch. The area is perfect for exploring the many delights of West Cornwall and the area is renowned for its artists and crafts. Within easy reach of Newlyn, Penzance, Lands End, the famous surfing beach at Sennen, and the picturesque town of St Ives. Visit the Tate Modern or the open air romantic Minack Theatre. The Boat Watch has its own front door and private staircase which leads to the first floor apartment. The enclosed hallway and fully double glazed windows and additional sound proofing ensure the apartment is conveniently located but quiet.
