The property

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.

    Hi Richard and Neil What a wonderful 3 night we had staying at the Mabel’s. The heaters were on on our arrival and freshly baked bread on the table for us. Best home made bread I have tasted. Thank you 😃👍 This is a rear and special place to stay. Very handy to Cafes and restaurants. So cosy at nights with the log fire going and to wake up to the beautiful view of the sea and birds singing. A must stay Great hosts

    I just wanted to say 'thank you' again for such a lovely stay at Mabels. We feel very lucky to have found this little gem. Such an elegant, charming, delightful, clean, relaxing place. Richard the added extra's and your warm welcome made it all the more special and we really appreciate and enjoyed our stay at Mavels. Kind regards and we hope to be back soon. Adrianne

    Mabel's is pretty special and that is coming from someone who lives on the water in a cottage already - so a bit spoilt. It's in a great location not far from town and gets the sun till late. We really enjoyed being there. It's so clean and pretty on the inside and really comfortable. R an N are great hosts, thinking of bringing them back down to welly to look after us here and bake. Will recommended to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

    What a truly wonderful experience - staying a Mabel's cottage is like discovering a little piece of kiwi magic. Historic, homely and a fantastic location. All the thoughtful extras like the freshly baked bread, herbs and even biscuits for the dog! made us feel right at home. I would highly recommend Mabels (and in fact have already told good friends about it as it's too good not to share). h.

    Sorry to have missed you also, but thank you so much for making our stay at Mabel's such a delightful experience. Mabel's to us was such a wonderful place to stay - the furniture the pottery and many other things were exactly the sort of decor I love. The bread you baked was delicious and thank you for the flowers when we arrived. It was thoughtful of you to provide us with a connection to the internet and I will enquire about purchasing my own this week as we would be able to use it at many places we travel just makes things a lot easier with keeping in touch.
