Harbour moon has front row seats to the harbour in the charming village of Mousehole. Designed with inspiration from the world outside, Harbour moon juxtaposes rough granite with walls clad in sea-worn wooden planks and authentic shipping ropes. Edgy, rustic, and chic, we’re confident there’s nowhere else like Harbour Moon.
Originally a two bedroom cottage known as Gwell Enys, it has been totally renovated and transformed into an exceptional seductively romantic retreat for two.
Materials used internally reflect those seen from the cottage overlooking the sea. Rough granite juxtaposed with Cornish ‘shrimper ‘ coloured lime render, walls clad with worn wooden planks, ropes and rusty chains… this is certainly not your average cottage but a unique and beautiful space, perfect for a romantic escape or honeymoon.
On entering there is a hall and cloakroom/WC. Beyond is an open plan kitchen and sitting room which has a glass panel in the ceiling giving the impression of double height space. There is a large comfortable sofa, a smart TV /DVD and a wood burning stove… great for cozying up on cold winter nights and a table with two chairs.
The first floor has sail loft style being a large space with stone walls and double height ceiling. The bespoke headboard doubles as a room divider and dressing table with plentiful storage for clothes. Behind this is a huge walk in shower, from which there is also a view of the sea and a hammered bronze basin.
A super king size custom made bed sits against the headboard inset with rows of rope and chain. From the bed the scenes of bobbing boats, harbour wall and waves crashing beyond is magnified through the glass floor allowing views from the ground floor, first floor and sky lights to merge into one.
Harbour Moon is a one-of-a-kind escape.
