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.

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

We are repeat visitors to the property, so that says it all. This is a comfy, clean and well positioned flat which, apart from the steep hills, is ideally placed for the local train to and from St Ives and the coastal path

This apartment is in a fantastic location overlooking Carbis Bay to St ives, and Is two minutes from the train station and beach.

Albeit the apartment was satisfactory for the cost, it could do with some refurbishing in some area’s and more/better kitchen equipment, this would able you to do more cooking in instead of going out especially in the strange times were living in at present.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your helpful feedback. The team have since been in touch for some further information on your comments and the owners wanted you to know that they appreciate your feedback and agree that due to its close proximity, the sea does take its toll on the outside of the property by the end of the season, and so a complete exterior repaint and redecoration is booked for the end of November. They have found that their guests vary considerably in their use of the kitchen facilities and the limited space means that they have to compromise a little on what can be provided, so whilst they may fall short of providing all that is needed for the more ambitious cooks, they do include a full compliment of basic items, including saucepans, frying pans and baking trays, in addition to the usual microwave and toaster. We hope that you had a great time here, enjoying those fantastic views and hopefully we will see you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely accommodation in perfect location! Loved having the beach 1 minute away and being able to walk into St Ives. View was amazing wish we could have stayed longer

Apartment in perfect location with beautiful sea views. It was clean, comfortable and modern with up to date appliances and equipment. Lovely walk along the coastal path to St Ives.

A well equipped comfortable flat with a fantastic view.

We have stayed here many times since the building was first constructed, and before the present owners purchased it. The improvements made recently are noticeable and appreciated. The new mattress is very comfortable. Wi-fi and Sky television were easy to use and very useful. Already looking forward to our next stay in a few months.

Well equipped apartment, with lovely views and just in front of the train station.

Excellent large, spacious and comfortable apartment. Perfect location and fabulous views.

Ideal family holiday apartment ,( steps up to the apartment may cause problems for people with walking difficulties ) views fantastic, perfect location for the beach, beach restaurant ,easy access to the coastal path short walk into St. Ives, Very convenient for the railway station and rail links.

This is the 4th time of staying here .and we will be back.

Good location, but the property and the bathroom, needs a super deep clean.

A nice, well equipped, we furnished apartment with lovely sea views and easy access to public transport and beaches.

Great location with lovely views. Very handy for railway to St Ives. Well equipped and comfortable.

Excellent stay with a great location. Everything we could of needed was included in the property. Perfect for evening or morning walks down to the beach or a train ride into St Ives. Could easily stop here and not touch the car for a week.

Great location cosy apartment within very short walking distance of carbis bay beach. Clean and well furnished.

It was beautiful location and felt homely yet clean modern furnishings and nicely decorated.

Reception team always very pleasant and helpful when making a reservation, it makes life so easy. always well presented, clean, fresh and comfortable, we have stayed at this property for a number of years (often twice a year) its great to come back ,home from home. we will be back in October .The lodge 1A. located in Carbis Bay is so convenient , beach, bar and restaurant, station, access to coastal path, short walk into St. Ives no parking problems ( bliss } . Sorry, forgot to mention the views, fabulous, morning, noon and night even on a wet miserable day, wonderful.

This property has envious views of Carbis bay ,a short walk to the glorious beach. This property is a very comfortable home from home apartment with the convenience of under a 3 minute train commute to st Ives. Great value for the first time or seasoned Cornwall visitor.

We like this apartment because it is in an excellent location. It is open plan and nice and bright with spectacular seaviews.

We appreciated the lovely fresh flowers left for us in the apartment - I love white roses! Also, the box of Cornish chocolate chip cookies went down well with a nice cup of tea.

We have just returned from a beautiful, chilled week's holiday in Carbis Bay over the Easter Holidays. The Lodge was everything we wanted; great views of the bay of St Ives, a short walk from the beautiful beach and coastal paths (literally across the road) and quiet - even with the train station virtually next door! Having the train station so close was so handy too, the fares are really good into St Ives, especially with a Family and Friends Railcard! The trains are quiet so you are not disturbed by them in any way.

The accommodation is clean and modern and we felt very at home there. We would have actually liked to have stayed there!!! All good things have to come to an end but I'm sure we will return to the accommodation in the future.

We love St Ives and, like a lot of other people we know, it draws you back year after year.

The weather couldn't have been any better for April, just beautiful.

An excellent property in a superb location. The beautiful Carbis Bay beach is just a one minute stroll away, and the views from the sitting room across the bay are breath-taking. I've fallen in love with Cornwall after this holiday.

Lodge 1a Carrack Gladden is a little gem. It is in an excellent location with superb views across the bay and only a few minutes walk to the station. It has a bright, spacious, open plan area and is very comfortable.

Excellent location with views over Carbis Bay. Covenient for walks to Porth Kindney Sands, Lelant and St Ives. Flat is modern with all facilities and comfortable. We will visit again.

Fantastic location with great view over Carbis bay. Only a short walk to the beach and great to have Carbis railway station right next door.

Lovely spacious apartment, lovely views and good parking

A beautiful apartment with breathtakingly amazing views. Aspects were a pleasure to deal with and we will most definitely utilise their services in the future. Thank you very much
