Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

A wonderful stay in a super location. Well equipped and comfortable.

What a fantastic apartment to call home for a couple of weeks. Furnished to a high standard & very comfortable, the heated floor was a winner for our dog. The apartment was immaculately clean and very well equipped. Close to the coastal path, easy parking with designated parking space and awesome views. We loved our stay and hope to return. Thank you

Jan 2020

Apartment lovely with wonderful views despite our poor weather.

Shopping easy as local Tesco only a short walk away.

Bus services good. St Ives, as always lovely and not too crowded as it was November.

As we travelled by train directions from Carbis Bay railway station would have been helpful. Google maps took us on a difficult path. Found different route which proved much easier

It's great to hear that you enjoyed 1 Fernhill Apartment; the views and location of this property are great aren't they? We're sorry that we hadn't known that you were arriving by train; I can see that you had all of your arrival details sent out a couple of weeks before your arrival, but unfortunately, as standard, these are sent out with the route described as if you are arriving by car. For anyone arriving by train, plane or bus, we are always happy to help provide alternative directions and any information that you may need ready for your arrival. We also highly recommend following described routes rather than using postcodes in google maps or Satnavs which unfortunately in several areas around here, can often take routes that may not be suitable or direct you to a nearby but incorrect road. We're glad that you managed to find it in the end, albeit by a slightly scenic route :-) Tanya, Customer Services

It was a nice well turned out apartment. Close to all shops and main roads to explore the area with ease. There are some nice places to eat near by

I loved staying at Fernhill for my first solo trip to Cornwall with my Cockapoo. We both felt very at home straight away with a lovely welcome tray and stunning views seen from every room. All the furniture and fixtures are very high quality. It was very peaceful and quiet yet close to bustling St Ives and many other beautiful places. Excellent and easily accessible parking even for a 4x4. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you again Aspects for an amazing stay!

The property was lovely and in a fantastic position. Beautiful to watch the sea every day. The area is lovely and quiet but has easy access into St Ives by bus, train or a lovely walk. We had a good time and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Sep 2018

The cottage is in a beautiful location with stunning views and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the property to family and friends. It had everything you needed for a relaxing home from home holiday.
