Really enjoyed our stay at Scadden House, home from home. Had everything we required.
Good location and the bus stop outside was very handy, we used it on a couple of occasions into Penzance. Nice walk down the lane to Mousehole but a steep walk back.
Lovely cottage, well equipped, great location. Very happy with holiday. But not happy to catch the neighbour with a catapault shooting at the house.
Dear Mrs House Thank you for your review of Scadden House in 'Upfront Reviews'. I am glad that you had a good holiday and that you were happy with the cottage. I have followed up your comment about the neighbour using a catapult. He asked me to apologise and said that 'it won't happen again'. He explained that he used the catapult to try to discourage seagulls from nesting on the roof of the cottage. I am very sorry if this incident spoiled your enjoyment of your holiday. Kind Regards Ann Jackson Scadden House
Great location- close to Mousehole and Newlyn but less busy.
Enjoyed a great week away. The house has a lovely garden which we were able to enjoy.
Comfortable, had all that was needed - except (strangely enough) tea towels and an oven mitt, but I think that was an oversight. Beautiful location. Enjoyed it very much.
Lovely relaxed stay
What a delightful stay in a warm comfy cottage with all the essentials. Location perfect for walking & exploring with everything we needed close by. Good pub next door with food, real ales & nice wine selection where we were made to feel very welcome. Laura the housekeeper was delightful too. Hoping to return later this year!
Paul makes a perfect centre for exploring Penwith and guests find themselves within walking distance of Mousehole and a few miles away from Land's End, Penzance, St Ives, St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre and the gorgeous beaches of Porthcurno, and Whitesand Bay, Sennen. As such this is a wonderfully central location to reach the surfing beaches that surround the Western tip of Cornwall.
Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End, that has retained much of its old world charm. The narrow streets are filled with galleries, small shops and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, cluster together around the inner edge of the harbour, these are protected from the force of the sea by two robust breakwaters. Car parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village. The tiny village was overcome by the loss of the Penlee lifeboat, the Solomon Brown, just before Christmas 1981. Most of the crew was from Mousehole. On the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy, the Christmas Lights are turned off for one hour as a mark of respect for the crew who died whilst trying to rescue those on the Union Star off Lamorna.
The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. You can even take a helicopter ride from Penzance to view the lights from the sky! Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village's unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.
