About ABC Mousehole Cottages

We have been building our agency over the last 10 years and now that we have a significant presence in Mousehole we are able to focus on the village and provide a high quality service for both guests and owners.  It's not just this website, we have a whole network of local cleaners and tradesmen on call to take care of everything.

I first came to Cornwall in 1982 to work on fishing boats out of Newlyn & Falmouth and it was love at first sight.  The work only lasted a year but I made plenty of friends have been visiting ever since.  When I met my wife in 1983 Cornwall was the first place I took her on holiday and my two sons have been enjoying beaches and rock pools since before they could walk.  The new millenium found me working in software sales and we were able to achieve our dream of buying a holiday cottage.

What followed was a swift and painful education in the practices of the cottage letting industry, the big agencies wanted up to 25% commission and then it turned out they didn't do any of the difficult things like changeovers or even taking calls from guests staying at the property.  In the end I did everything myself and soon other owners in the town asked me if I could help them with their cottage.

In 2005 I quit my job and started working with people who wanted to buy in Cornwall, finding properties and renovating them.  This all came to an abrupt halt with the financial crash so We've been working flat out since to build the agency into a business to take me through to our old age!

Finally both of our sons are at university leaving us free to live the dream of spending most of our lives in Cornwall.  My wife finished teaching in July 2013 and now works with us in the business.  My assistant of 10 years got the Cornwall bug so badly that she moved to Porthleven with her young family to run the new office we opened there and we have dozens of people providing a complete service for our owners.  We have a supervisor who lives in Mousehole to look after both guests and owners and can offer a range of services from booking only to taking care of everything
