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.

Beautiful location with excellent picture views and everything you could need in a home from home.

June 2018

We spent 10 days at Wave Watch in total comfort. A beautiful apartment the photos don't do it justice with quality furnishings and equipment tv, dishwasher etc. The most amazing view we have had in a holiday let so far. You just can't get bored watching the sea and the beach activity not to mention the little train that runs past. The highlight was seeing a seal from the huge bay window two days running spending time feeding and playing on the turquoise warer. The bottle of wine and crisps on arrival was a real plus. I highly recommend this property.

April 2017

My wife and I have visited the Wave Watch three times this year, the apartment is amazing the views out of the large bay windows are absolutely fantastic. There is a short walk to Carbis bay beach and the train station is close by so you can take a train into St Ives. You are right by the coastal path and if you like walking the views along the path are brilliant. We hope to visit the Wave Watch again in the near future.

September 2016

This is a wonderful apartment with amazing views. It was clean and contained everything you would need for a self catering holiday, with a whole lot more. Loved the extras; wind breakers and fold away seats for the beach, massive array of books and dvd's, binoculars to have a closer looks the wonderful view, and an amazing window seat with views of the whole of Carbis Bay and St Ives harbour in the distance. Wonderful apartment that we will definitely use if we holiday in this area again.
