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.

Amazing location with even more amazing views. Also so well equipped and comfy. We feel lucky to have been able to stay here.

Good, comfortable, and spacious accommodation with a wonderful view of St.Ives and Godrevy Lighthouse.

This property is great for location and sea views

Lovely spacious and comfortable flat with a sea view you won't want to leave. Well equipped and in a great location for Carbis Bay beach.

The view is outstanding ! Very well equipped and very clean apartment. The Netflix tv was great for a rainy day . Great location 5 min walk to beach and train into St Ives. Didn’t disappoint.

The apartment was excellent and very comfortable. A very enjoyable holiday, great location and stunning views over the bay. A short walk down a hill to Carbis bay or walk on round the corner through the woods coming out by Porthminster St Ives. There is a train that runs 1/2 hourly which is very handy and costs very little, it runs from Porthminster beach St Ives to St Earth and back.

A really lovely apartment with outstanding views. Great location. The train station was a short walk with trains running once an hour into St Ives - a 6 minute journey for just £1 (October 2018). Not having to take the car meant that we were able to enjoy the many bars and restaurants St Ives has to offer, including the Firehouse in Fore Street which has over 100 different gins to choose from. Penzance, Marazion, The Minack Theatre and Lands End are all a short journey away. Highly recommended.

Amazing view

Great location and view. Easy reach of carbis bay beach. All made very easy by Aspects. Thanks. We'll be back soon.

Sea Wave is a fantastic flat and we very much hope to stay there again. It was much larger than expected and everything was in great order; it all felt fresh and well looked after, and very clean and comfortable. The location is excellent as you can walk down to a beautiful beach within five minutes, up to the main road in a similar time, or into St Ives in about 20 minutes. You can also hop on the train round to St Ives, taking about three minutes. There were lots of games, books and DVDs in the flat and the view is just beautiful - the huge window looks out over the sea and across to the Island in St Ives or over to Hayle in the other direction. The only thing that is missing really is a private outside space, and/or easy access to the shared gardens.
