Welcome to Lynvale, Mousehole and your Cornish holiday

Built in the early 1950’s on fields previously used for flower farming, Lynvale is now a three bedroom, three bathroom holiday home with parking, gardens and stunning views.

It has become a popular place for families and groups of friends to explore Mousehole and West Penwith, with a following of returning guests who have made Lynvale their Cornish holiday home.

I'm also convinced of its virtue and I live here too - in the annexe which is joined (by locked door) to the main holiday home and have many ‘locals secrets’ to share with you.

If you would like to eat breakfast gazing at the sea, explore the gorgeous fishing village of Mousehole, find the most stunning and alluring locations in Cornwall, cook an evening meal of fresh Newlyn fish and trade adventures on our comfy sofas then this is the place for you. After your Cornish holiday at Lynvale you are bound to return home with lasting memories; happy, healthy and more relaxed than when you arrived.

'We returned to Mousehole for the lights, again with our two sets of friends. Such good self-catering accommodation. Rooms sparkling white, beautifully furnished, elegant and modern. Excellent service throughout from the friendliest host possible.

Three good double bedrooms, two en suite, one wiht its own bathroom, a lovely separate dining sitting room, well equipped kitchen. Plentiful parking on site.

A gentle walk down through the village to see the lights, walk along the harbourside. Perfect accommodation, perfect place, perfect visit. Blessed. '
