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.

Jan 2020

Amazing view, comfortable bed, can be noisy from apartment above, could do with upgrading in the kitchen cutlery/crockery department.

Nov 2019

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your helpful comments. We just wanted to try and reassure you as much as possible, that the kind of noise that you experienced is not the norm. We understand that a carpet was being fitted upstairs, causing some noise for 1 day that was above what would be expected from being in an apartment. The housekeeper has also been in touch to inform us that she was chatting with the property owner about your comments on the kitchen cutlery and crockery so that any necessary replacements could be organised. Thanks again and we're glad that you otherwise enjoyed your time here. Tanya, Customer Services

A great little place to stop close to everything you need.

Oct 2019

Our second visit to this apartment and have already booked again for next year. Lovely view across Carbis Bay. Well equipped and quiet.

Sep 2019

Lovely views, comfortable apartment. Parking can be a problem. Patio is north facing hence usually in shade. Very steep hill down to beach. No pub close to property.

Jul 2019

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry that there was some confusion with the parking. Having been able to look fully in to your comments and the phone conversation that you had with a member of staff, it was communicated that the parking is across from the garages as opposed to park across the garages; we are so sorry if this had not come across clearly on the phone call, and in hindsight, we should have stated 'park along the wall' to make it clearer, as is stated within the printed arrival information. We just wanted to try and reassure you that parking is not ordinarily a problem here, there is only 1 permit allocated per property, and parking is monitored there. We have kept a close eye on this since then, with no further reports of a lack of parking, so we can only apologise if there had for any reason, been too many cars parking along there the week that you stayed. We do hope that you still had a great time here. Tanya, Customer Services

A lovely apartment superb views close to St Ives train very useful to travel on only £2 return and prompt service. If you do not want to be bothered by seagulls banging on the window then do not feed them.

Jul 2019

Our stay at this Carbis Bay apartment has been most enjoyable. The fantastic view across Carbis Bay to St Ives, is wonderful, quite the best we've ever experienced.. The railway station is 4 minutes' walk away and the journey to St Ives takes 3 minutes and costs £1 each way!

We have no hesitation in recommending this property. HOWEVER, it must be stressed that this property is situated on VERY STEEP hill and in our opinion is quite unsuitable for elderly or disabled people. There is no 'evening stroll' without the car!

Jun 2019

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed this property. There is a bit of a steep downhill walk to get down to the beach and a short but uphill walk to get to the train station which can take you into St Ives, or in the opposite direction of St Erth so that you can explore areas further afield. As with many properties in St Ives and Carbis Bay, due to their hilly nature, it is worth chatting to our team before booking, to check on suitability if you have any mobility issues or just struggle with hills. We are glad that you agreed that the views more than make up for this though and we hope to see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Enjoyed it so much that we have booked again for next year

Jun 2019
