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.

A fantastic couples retreat, right on the main road so none of the big hills to try and navigate, but with really thick walls so none of the road noise, the views over Carbis bay were all as described and the patio area was much larger than the pictures give it justice....A snug, welcoming apartment finished to an extremely high standard.
