About this Holiday House

What a little honey... they don’t make them like this anymore! Mabel has been round a bit and can tell a few stories! Recently updated and beautifully furnished she is ready to start her next era – come and be part of that! She has 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 2 toilets. Mabel may look small but she’s actually surprisingly roomy and airy. You’ll delight in the stunning views from every window, and she’s literally just 7 paces from back door to water’s edge! This charming cottage provides you with a very comfortable and stylish base to explore our wonderful area. No matter what the weather you’ll luxuriate in Mabel’s ambience and space. At almost 150 years old she is well versed at having people stay and it shows. Mabel’s of Mill Bay is definitely worth a visit.

Actually stayed at No 8 as work being done at Mabels. We also loved No 8. Not as cute but stylish, very clean with fantastic views of harbour. Warmed by cosy fire on cold nights & sat on great deck at warmer times. Would definitely go back
