"Everything about the house exceeded my expectations.

The Lifeboat house encompasses the true essence of Mousehole."

Haines - Christmas 2017

"The property was absolutely beautiful and has clearly been finished to a very high standard.

We got some wonderful weather considering the time of year and got to do a lot of the walks that we would usually do in the spring. It's a great time of year to visit.

We spend a lot of time in Cornwall so have done most things, but this was the first time we have ever driven over to Godrevy to see the seals, which was fab.

This was probably our favourite property that we have stayed in both in Mousehole and elsewhere. We will definitely be back!

I had never come across Milly & Martha before but we will definitely use you again." Roberts - November 2017
