It is believed the cottage is over 200 years old and was previously two smaller cottages, which were likely to have been thatched in earlier days. Whilst attached at the rear of another cottage (probably added much later), Mount Pleasant is independent of its neighbour and enjoys the benefits of feeling detached with good-sized mature gardens ensuring considerable privacy. It faces south and stands on the edge of this historical creekside village, adjacent to the road leading to St. Mawes, offering some panoramic westerly views over the nearby countryside.
