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.

Fantastic place to stay for all family, lots of space for everyone. Great TV games room for the younger members of the group. Be prepared to walk up some steep hills to get back to the house.

Aug 2018

Having you guys on the end of an email or phone was fantastic. Your service and prompt replies were terrific. Say hi to Peter the plumber too :) Moonbeams is a magnificent house and perfectly laid out for our group; two couples, my dad and two dogs. Everyone had a sea view and space to chill. I loved how ‘at home’ we felt from the moment we walked in; everything we needed was there. It’s location was great too with plenty of dog-friendly beaches and restaurants close by. All in all we had a wonderful time.
