A luxury cabin with a view
Fallen Angel, a luxury cabin designed just for two is perched perfectly above the rooftops within Mousehole’s Conservation Area. From the decked balcony the view stretches from St Michael’s Mount, across Mount’s Bay and out to the English Channel.
One of the real draws of this luxury bolthole for two is the forever-changing seascape. Fallen Angel comes equipped with Olympus binoculars to help you make the most of what’s out there. But what is out there?
Let’s start in the water. Dolphins are a common sight as well as porpoises. Their larger cousins are also known to visit the area. Humpback and fin whales have been spotted from the shore and a very rare visitor is the bowhead whale. What about a 25ft shark? Don’t worry, these are basking sharks and unless you are a plankton, completely harmless. Seals are not an uncommon sight around St Clement’s island that lies just off Mousehole harbour.
There are gulls aplenty and at this time of year you do not need binoculars as most are nesting in the valleys and chimney-stacks of the roof landscape of Mousehole which lies just beneath Fallen Angel.
At night the lack of light pollution make the balcony the ideal place to star gaze. Venus has been clearly visible of late, and it’s the perfect spot constellations as you sip a glass of wine.
Mount’s Bay is not restricted to wildlife and night skies As a natural harbour, many large ships take refuge from the Atlantic but sailors’ know how dangerous the Cornish Coast can be. The Penlee Lifeboat and Coast Guard helicopter regularly speed through and across the waters and let’s not forget the fishing vessels. Newlyn, one of the UKs largest fishing ports is just along the coastline. And for those of us who are secretly a little bit of a geek (like me!), there is a Marine Traffic app on the Fallen Angel ipad so you can identify and track all you see – don’t worry, we won’t tell.
