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.

Tranquility by name and nature. Our second visit so that says it all. Beautiful property, well furnished and in a stunning location. Pat and Gordon

1 month ago

We stayed at tranquility monday to friday, we couldnt have asked for a nicer place to stay. It was perfect, the cottage was excellent, spotless. We also enjoyed having the hot tub to relax in after our walks and sightseeing. Dana who owned the property was friendly and very helpful. The property has lovely views as it is set on one of the highest points in Carbis Bay. Because of this you do have to travel up an unmade road which if walking is very long and quite a trek.

Aug 2020

Tranquility was a beautiful property with everything that you would need and the added bonus of a hot tub! The kitchen was not lacking in the things you need, there was a coffee machine and the property also has a smart TV so netflix etc can be accessed. The host was helpful, friendly and welcoming (we were even greeted with a little selection of local treats). Beds and sofas were extremely comfortable which makes all the difference to a stay away from home. I would love to stay again and highly recommend the property to anyone who need a bit of ‘tranquility’.

Aug 2020

What a wonderful find! We visited during the last week of July and were not disappointed. Dana - the host - was exceptionally welcoming and helpful. She honestly couldn’t have done more to accommodate us. The property itself it absolutely stunning. So well maintained with everything you’d ever need inside. The resident goats, Hector and Hester, were a pleasant surprise too who we enjoyed seeing each morning in their paddock! Will definitely try to book to stay again. ????????????

Aug 2020

We had such a lovely time, amazing views. The cottage is beautifully decorated to a really high standard. We had really lovely welcome personalised message left for us. Which gave it that extra little touch. Along with the welcome package with local cheese ,crackers and cider. The owners are so lovely and welcoming, we would have stayed longer if they didn't already have people booked in. Cant wait to go back.

Love Sarah and Paul xxx

Jul 2020

We were absolutely blown away with how amazing our week holiday at Tranquility was. We were welcomed with a personalised welcome message on the chalk board and a selection of local treats which was lovely. The location and property itself is perfect with the incredible hot tub and log fire. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Mar 2020

Lovely property situated 'away from it all', yet close enough to everything and everywhere you'd wish to visit in south Cornwall. The owners live next door, but were very respectful of our space/privacy, and in making sure we enjoyed our stay whilst at their property. The house is beautifully decorated and supplied with everything you might need to make this stay a 'home away from home' holiday. The hot tub was an excellent way to relax and unwind after a day out exploring this lovely part of the country. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely book here again if we find ourselves in S. Cornwall.

Feb 2020

Our first holiday where we have totally switched off from a busy year. Tranquility was certainly the right name for the cottage. Superb location and everything you could wish for topped off by a spotlessly clean accommodation even hand delivered mince pies for Christmas by the owner 10/10 just don’t want anyone else to know about it.

Dec 2019

The perfect holiday in the perfect holiday location. Tranquility is one of those rare finds where it's not only impossible to find fault, but where the attention to detail makes it the equivalent if you were flying to flying first class.The pictures on the website make it look good but in all honesty don't do it justice. A selection of Cornish products as a complimentary gift on arrival. Milk in the fridge, coffee pods for the Nespresso machine to get you started. The wood burner, set up ready to light if you want a fire. This is a one bedroom palace, at the end of a country lane with the most fantastic views. Peace and tranquility is what it is definitely all about. How can you beat an evening in the middle of winter in a hot tub watching the stars, then curled up on a comfortable settee with a glass of wine, watching a box set on the 60 inch TV. Richard from Lancashire.

Nov 2019

Beautiful & well equipped cottage in a lovely area of Cornwall. The owners were welcoming, friendly, available but not at all intrusive. The hot tub was a welcome treat at the end of wet & wild Cornish day’s out & the views were incredible.

Nov 2019

I cannot recommend Aspect Holidays high enough, the level of customer service is extremely high something that most service providers seem to lack was an anniversary break and a card of bottle of fizz was awaiting us on arrival, a lovely touch.. The property was perfect for couples and furnished and finished to a very high standard. Owner was so friendly and helpful and welcoming to their beautiful property. Details did state drive not suitable for certain cars, and would suggest sport cars take extra care..I was concerned when arrived but once you plot a route up and down no dramas, SUV’s and normal family cars are fine....Perfect location, beautiful accommodation, value for money and great company to book with.... Hope to return next year...

Oct 2019

Loved this property. Designed, built and furnished to a very high standard with everything you could need. Spacious, comfortable, bright and airy . With the added benefit of a hot tub and far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be peaceful and quiet as the name suggests. Loved the “neighbours” Hamish and Hector two resident goats who we shared breakfast with every day and also the owners cat Takoda. A more chatty cat you will never meet.

Sep 2019

We can’t speak highly enough of Tranquillity and our week in the cottage. It’s cosy, modern and spotless, with views down to the bay and - our favourite bit - a hottub on the secluded sundeck. Tucked away up a winding lane, it’s close enough to the town to make it the perfect base for the whole St Ives area - and we were on foot. One morning we set out for a walk and ended doing a spectacular five-hour trek along the South West Coast Path. On rainy days, we sank into on the sofa in front of the enormous TV watching Netflix boxsets. Heavenly! What made it even more special were the lengths to which Dana and her family went to make us feel welcome - they couldn’t have done more, or been friendlier or kinder. We’ll be back!

Aug 2019

This house is Tranquility a perfect name for a perfect property. Its a shame to go out its that cosy with quality furniture and equipment for all you needs. Great owners and very friendly. Many Thanks.

Aug 2019

Tranquility was by far the best property we have ever stayed in. The property was beautifully and tastefully decorated with lots of attention to detail and comfort. The hamper left on our arrival of locally sourced produce was a thoughtful bonus which was very welcome and much appreciated.

Aug 2019

We had a fantastic mini moon stay at tranquility, made even better by a personal gift and welcome for us.

Aug 2019

We were not disappointed - the Cottage and its location were absolutely perfect. The Cottage is the best we’ve stayed in by far and would highly recommend it to family and friends. So much so, we’ve rebooked it for 2020 and can’t wait! Our thanks to Dana for the welcome pack and for making our stay so memorable.

Jul 2019

We both loved the property which is perfect for couples - so well equipped and stylish. The hot tub was a bonus and luckily we had great weather for the whole week. Dana was a great host and we’ve already booked for next year!! C&M Hoylake

Jul 2019

Absolutely lovely place run and maintained by the owners who live just yards away. It still feels brand new. The finish and detail is of a high standard as is the level of cleanliness. It’s obvious that Tranquility has been built with and is managed with care. The owners are nice people and it’s not intrusive them being next door. If you are the social kind and like a chat, Dana will gladly entertain you all day. Don’t worry about the pet goats, they don’t smell or make any noise. Are you fit? We walk everywhere and timed the walk from the main road up the steep track to Tranquility at 10 minutes. Carbis beach is probably the same again. We are a fit couple (40ish) who train at the gym four nights a week and often go walking and we found this a bit tough. This is not a slight on Tranquility and will only be of interest to a few but if you have a cherished blemish free, low riding car with nice alloys and low profile tyres then you will struggle with attempting this goat/ tractor track. We used a 4x4 for this holiday and gladly so. We love St Ives and Carbis bay and when we return Tranquility will be our chosen home from home. Tip if you’re interested. Don’t blindly follow sat nav post code directions like I did and end up stuck down an over grown track. Carbis bay is clearly signed on the main roads and directions with street names are included in the welcome pack. Anyone know a good detailer to fix my scratched bodywork!

Jul 2019

On arrival at Tranquility we could not believe how special the property looked, then once inside it was even more outstanding. We had a very chilled relaxed holiday, the owners were lovely,everything you could possibly need, and all to a very high standard - would highly recommend.

Jul 2019

Had an amazing stay at Tranquility. The hosts were welcoming and could not do enough for you and the accommodation was beautiful everything had been thought of. The location was perfect close to town yet very peaceful. We would 100% recommend this accommodation and will definitely be back again.

Jun 2019

It was perfect. Tranquility!! Is the right description for this property Beautifully fitted out in EVERY way. The Hot Tub was an extra bonus. The owner was lovely. There if you needed anything but also afforded us our privacy. We have stayed in six of Aspects properties in the last five years all of which have been very good, but Tranquility gets our top mark. Would highly recommend a stay there!!!

May 2019

This is a fantastic place to stay, everything about it is great. Location is perfect and the property has been built to an exceptionally high standard. The owners have thought of everything - Tranquility will not disappoint!

May 2019

Tranquillity is the perfect romantic getaway. The views from the cottage are absolutely stunning and we loved relaxing with a glass of fizz in the hot tub. The cottage is in a prime location, just a 5 minute drive to St. Ives. Dana and Simon were so friendly and helpful and it was lovely having their goats, Hamish and Hector so close by. We couldn't recommend Tranquillity enough.

May 2019

Immaculate, stylish, private and serene. We felt spoilt with the remote setting and quality of finish! Host was very attentive, we had a lovely stay and should have booked longer! Thank you.

(Hot tub was amazing!)

May 2019

We would thoroughly recommend tranquility. The accommodation was a very high standard and the outside space and hot tub were great. Tranquility has everything that you need for a very comfortable stay. The owner is extremely welcoming and friendly.

May 2019

We had a very restful stay in Tranquility, you cannot fault the property all decorated and equipped to the highest standard. Thoughtful welcome gifts and the views are gorgeous. The property is actually the highest house up in Carbis Bay with an easy walk to St Ives and Carbis Bay train station near too. The owner was very helpful too ....and the characterful goats Hamish and Hector were a bonus and of course the hotub! A wonderful location to explore the magnificent Cornish coastline too.

Apr 2019

Fantastic week away in Tranquility. The barn has a really luxurious feel to it and location is spot on being close to coast path, beaches, St Ives etc but at the top of the hill it is also very peaceful and out of the way, so you have best of both worlds. The owner has thought of everything to make for a comfortable stay and was friendly and welcoming whilst respecting your privacy. It would say this would be a great place to come whatever the season with the hot tub, big TV, very comfortable bed, high quality equipment and powerful shower. Really could not find fault with it and will certainly consider returning in the future.

Apr 2019

Lovely property. Very comfortable and well equipped, with some nice quirky ornaments. Owners friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Hot tub is lovely to get into after long walks. Property was always warm and cosy. We didn’t use the log burner as the weather was amazing for the whole week we stayed. We would recommend Tranquility to friends and family.

Apr 2019

A beautiful property in a great location, we will be back!!!!!

Mar 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at this very stylish, beautifully appointed property. Set in a peaceful location off the beaten track, Tranquility boasts great views and superbly designed interiors and garden. It is very well equipped for two and the friendly owner has thought of everything to make your holiday as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Loved coming back to the hot tub, the log burner and the lovely fluffy bathrobes and slippers after a chilly autumnal day of exploring....fantastic!!! We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely little gem of a place.

Nov 2018

Lives up to it's name - very tranquil and relaxing. Excellent touches make it feel distinctive, classy but very homely - really enjoyed going back to the house - very much more than a base!

Nov 2018

Everything about this property was absolutely beautiful. The property is furnished to a very high standard and it is set in a lovely and peaceful location. The hot tub and wood fire were a lovely treat after a day of exploring. Would not hesitate in returning or recommending to friends/family.

Oct 2018

Despite wet and windy weather, we still had an amazing weekend at Tranquility! The location was perfect, not overlooked and the hot tub and log burner in cold weather were just what we needed! The property has a luxurious feel to it and has everything you need, there is really no need to leave the property! The host was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend!

Oct 2018

Tranquility is a real find in a fantastic, quiet secluded location high above Carbis Bay. The property is very new so all the fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard indeed. The log burner and hot tub were such a great feature of the property, as was the 65in TV and the friendly on site goats. I would not hesitate to recommend this super property.

Oct 2018

Beautiful luxurious cottage in fabulous location. Worth every penny and can't wait to return

Sep 2018

This cottage is a delightful find, beautifully and tastefully decorated. It is hidden at the top of a hill up a slightly bumpy lane giving great views. Our hostess was kind generous and thoughtful without being intrusive. We had a great stay and would recommend this to all couples without hesitation or reservations. Great bed, shower, kitchen and lounge, huge TV, nice jacuzzi. Couldn’t find fault with anything.

Sep 2018

We loved the property and surrounding areas. We had a really relaxing stay and enjoyed chilling out in the hot tub. The host was lovely and made us feel really welcome. We will defiantly be staying at Tranquility again and would highly recommend staying here.
