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.

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.

May 2017

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.

Apr 2017

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.

Aug 2016

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.
