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.

Clean, tidy, spacious apartment in a good location. Well equipped with pleasant view from living room balcony through trees to the sea. Safe off road parking, and convenient path to beach alongside the apartment building, which was steep but we navigated ok in the rain with a 2 and 5 year old! Would definitely be happy to stay here again.

The cleanliness and space of the apartment and quality bed linen and towels. Good location being about 30 minutes walk into St Ives, though bus and train also very close by if preferred. Very close to local amenities such as Tesco, very good deli/café a few minutes walk away. Lots of lovely beach walks close by.

Found Aspects to be a very efficient, helpful company. 5 Ropewalk, St. Margarets is a lovely apartment, but has a rather disappointing "sea view" as mainly obscured by trees. The patio is north facing, as are most of Carbis Bay properties that have a sea view aspect, so gets no/very little sun. Although the bedrooms back onto quite a busy main road, we were not aware of road noise at all when windows closed. Could be a problem in the summer however. Apartment could do with some finishing "dressing" i.e. Privacy blinds in bedrooms, pictures on walls, and another chair/ sofa in lounge.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were sorry to see that you found the sea view to be slightly obscured by the trees in front of the property, whilst you can still see the sea from the property, due to it being further back within Carbis Bay, it isn't the beachside view that you can experience from other properties closer to the sea itself. We are sorry if this was not what you had expected. The property is not far from the main road, which can be busy at times, so with windows open, you may hear some traffic, though it is certainly not the kind of level that you would experience in much busier towns and cities, and so far, feedback has been very good with regards to this. Thank you very much for your suggestions about what you think could be added to the property to improve it, we are always so grateful for constructive comments such as this and we will make sure this is highlighted to the property owner, for their consideration. We do hope to see you again soon. Ben, Customer Services

We had a wonderful stay at this modern apartment. Great location for Carbis Bay and near to main roads for ease of access when travelling. There is a steep walk back from the Bay which may affect those with mobility issues, other than that great restaurants and coastal walks both sides of the Bay taking you to St Ives and beautiful Porth Kidney Sands. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again. Many thanks.

Myself and my partner would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful apartment. Its in a great location for getting out and about in Cornwall.

Fantastic, clean apartment which is perfectly located. Easy walk to Tesco’s, 9 min walk to beach (v steep climb back), 5 min walk to train station, where you can get a train to St Ives taking just 3 minutes. I would highly recommend.

Very nicely furnished apartment in modern development. Arrived 2 weeks after easing of Covid-19 lockdown and could not fault cleanliness and safety systems in place. Excellent parking facilities for this area. Apartment within reasonable walking distance of St Ives. Walking to Carbis Bay beach took about 15minutes down a very steep hill so walking back would be a bit of a struggle for anyone with walking difficulties. Nonetheless we would be very happy to return in the future.

We had an amazing stay very modern, clean and fully equipped apartment. Easy access to an amazing beach Carbis Bay and local shops. Easy walking access and bus access to St Ives beach. Would highly recommend this apartment and company. Would definitely revisit and stay here again.
