Guest Reviews

We had a lovely stay at Little Duck, the cottage was beautiful, very clean and well equipped for all our needs. It was very comfortable both for relaxing in the evening and for sleeping. Being so close to Mousehole harbour was a huge bonus.
Fabulous location - enjoyed taking a cup of coffee down to the harbour, a few seconds walk away to chill and even swim a few times! The cottage is really well done, lovely interior & had everything you need - loved the fact that there really was everything you needed (dishwasher tablets, cloths etc). Mousehole is a lovely place to explore - great restaurants & cafes and a few gift/art shops. Lots of good walks & sunshine!
Beautiful property as pictured on website. Very impressed with the standard of interior. Mousehole is a great little base for a week, the harbour is a joy to see, and every morning I sat on one of the benches with my coffee from Hole Deli. Mousehole has some good options for takeaway coffee and also take out evening meals.
Lovely, convenient situation and great modernisation, but keeping its history. Excellent interior design and a minutes walk into the sea or to an excellent takeaway or to the farmers market every Monday in Solomon Browne Hall. Note after 1st May in Mousehole is the limited seasonal parking.
Little Duck was a delightful cottage in a great location. It was well equipped and tastefully furnished. The super king was the biggest bed we had ever slept in! We liked the coffee machine and enjoyed the scones and clotted cream that greeted us on arrival. The jam was the best i've eaten! We would definitely come again.
