Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The property is located in the heart of the village of Mousehole, one of the most famous fishing villages in Cornwall and extremely popular with tourists. Due to its largely unspoilt look and traditional harbour, the village has grown in prominence as a “Must Visit” destination for visitors and every year thousands of tourists are drawn to the unique Christmas lights display around the village and harbour. The property is moments away from the harbour front meaning it benefits from very good footfall, especially during the summer months and over Christmas.


A light, bright and charming self contained retail unit, currently used as a gallery but could be used for other retail uses (subject to planning). The property fronts onto Mill Lane and forms a very visible entrance to the Mill Pool, a small courtyard of three retail units including a lifestyle/gift shop as well as a coffee shop. The property is arranged over ground and first floors with a retail area to the front leading to an additional trading area to the rear with a staircase up to the first floor. There are shared WC facilities with the neighbouring unit.
