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.

Sea Whisper Castle has a heavenly garden, the house is full of interesting things - we kept noticing more every day - and it has beautiful views. A place of great character and charm.

September 2018

We had a fantastic, dreamy time at sea whisper castle. The place was plenty big enough for all 6 of us and we definitely didn't feel on top of one another. We actually spent quite a lot of time looking for each other in there! It was very homely and comfortable and the views were really breath taking. We used all the seating in the gardens at all different times of the day. Great location we walked to Carbis bay beach, train station and Porth Kidney beach from the house and it was great that Porth Kidney beach allowed dogs! St Ives at night in summer was just lovely. We couldn't have asked for a better holiday.

August 2018

Lovely views from property. Nice big living room/dining room. Great kitchen. Amazing garden.

Wonderful house , position and views. Very relaxing and peaceful but so close to amenities if needed. The proximity to the rail service to St Ives fantastic. We look forward to returning soon.

July 2015

Just for it to be made clear that the property is all on one floor and that the lower part of the house is in fact being made into a one bedroom separate accommodation. The pictures all give you to understand you are renting it all. The lower property was a double garage (it appears) under the house!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. You are quite right in pointing out that Seawhisper Castle is on the one floor. We are very sorry if that was not clear. The groundfloor apartment is undergoing refurbishment, but only outside of booking periods, with extensive soundproofing being added. We have now added a note on the description to highlight that the bottom half of Seawhisper Castle is a separate annexe, but currently there are no plans of this being in use during guest bookings. Any guest staying at Seawhisper Castle has full access to the grounds with no other guests occupying the ground floor property. Tanya, Customer Services.
