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.

Lovely modern clean apartment with sea views. Had a lovely stay here. Can walk to st Ives although could be a struggle for some as it’s up and down quite steep hills. Worth doing if you can for the lovely views

We spend quite a while looking at different properties and locations as this was our first trip down to Cornwall (2 adults and 14 year old daughter). We are so pleased that we booked this property. Parking space was a huge bonus, easy access to the building and to the apartment itself. Beds and bedding super comfy - we took our own pillows we always do. The balcony had a lovely view or the sea. During our stay we did not hear other people within the building which was a pleasant surprise. I took an iron with us but did not need to really as there was an iron and I fronting board there. There is Tesco just short driving distance away which we found easy and it was empty between 9 -10 AM. If you choose to stay here you will not be disappointed.

Aug 2020

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Breakwater/11 St Margaret’s. It was beautifully furnished, very clean and well equipped. Had some difficulty moderating the underfloor heating but overall very comfortable. Location and proximity to St Ives suited us perfectly giving us the option to walk, drive or catch the bus there. Lovely, albeit steep, walk down to Carbis Bay beach. Excellent base for exploring coastal paths nearby and further afield. No shortage of lovely restaurants nearby.
