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.

Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

We had an excellent holiday. The little touches such as the basket of wine and biscuits, milk in the fridge, dishwasher and washing tablets and even there being a Christmas tree up all made such a difference to it going from good to excellent.

Wonderful cottage for visitors and your dog, the dog will love the garden. Please do not be put off by comments about road noise, once inside you will be so happy with your choice you will not notice the outside noise.

Nov 2019

Really nice, homely property. Plenty of space, lovely garden for the dog and children, and close proximity to the beaches and St Ives. Really enjoyed our stay thank you.

Nov 2019

The accommodation is spacious and suited our big family get together. Located well for ease of access to places around the coast. A lovely welcome gift of local produce. Arrived late on a chilly evening to a warm accommodation was most welcome.

Oct 2019

Brilliant location, short walk to the beach which is open all year round for dogs. Scarlet Wines is great for breakfast and is a 5 minute walk.

Oct 2019

The cottage is lovely inside but unfortunately it backs straight onto the very busy main road to St Ives, the road noise was horrendous day and night so if you are a light sleeper this may not be suitable. Very steep stairs and lots of steps.

Thank you for your feedback; we are glad to hear that you liked Rose Cottage but sorry that you found the location a little noisy, due to the nearby road. We had amended the description after the last comment on this, just to make it as clear as possible, although we show the location on the map, we appreciate that for those that are not familiar with the area, the additional information may be useful. We hope that you agree that the fantastic, convenient location for access to Carbis Bay and St Ives, and easy access to the a30 to explore all that the area has to offer, made it worthwhile. Thank you for also sending in your thoughts on the number and steepness of stairs; whilst traditional Cornish cottages can be a little smaller, with layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, it hasn't been noted before, that these are particularly steep but we like to be completely open and honest with photos and descriptions so we will continue to monitor further feedback and check on the next inspection, amending the description as necessary. Tanya, Customer Services

Rose cottage is in an excellent location. It was very clean with towels supplied and the amenities in the cottage were great, everything you could want to make your stay there easier. Lots of information and leaflets were also there giving you information of things to do in the local and surrounding areas. We would highly recommend.

Aug 2019

This is the best Aspects Cottage we have stayed in. It is thoughtfully and beautify furnished and in an excellent location. The bus to St Ives stops outside and Hayle beach is a 5 minute drive away or a twenty minute walk along the coast path at the rear of the property. The garden is delightful and secluded with a lovely patio area and bbq. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Smart Tv and Games consul was a hit with the children. There are a few small things, which if addressed, will take this cottage from excellent to outstanding

Thank you for the lovely comments; we are glad to hear how much you liked Rose Cottage, and thank you for your suggestions of extra crockery, additional bathroom storage and a larger fridge. All comments are passed on to the property owners for their consideration, and it is really helpful to hear what you would find most useful to make your stay even better. Hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We really loved Rose Cottage. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The welcome pack was amazing. We and our dog Lucy enjoyed the garden, had a couple of bbqs and just chilled. We look forward to another visit in the future.

Jul 2019

We booked last minute and Kimberley at Aspects was very helpful, we have already booked another cottage. Rose Cottage is lovely, parking was very easy and the garden is nice, everything you wanted was there. The only down point was the road noise. Becky & Mark Robinson.

Glad to hear that our Kimberley could help you find the perfect place for your last minute break; we're glad that you liked it! And thanks for your helpful comment about the road noise. When you are staying in the properties, you get to experience them in a different way than we do when we visit them, so feedback like this is really helpful. The property does back onto the main road into St Ives and Carbis Bay, so at peak times of the day and year, this road will be busy. Having now had a couple of comments on this, we have amended the description to highlight the risk at certain times. We hope that you agree though, that this lovely grade II listed property and extremely convenient location for accessing not only St Ives and Carbis Bay but also West Cornwall and the A30, makes for a great base to explore and enjoy everything that Cornwall has to offer. Tanya, Customer Services

Rose Cottage was exactly as described, very clean, well decorated with good equipment and facilities. It has a convenient position and a large private garden which is secure for both the children and dogs. Had not appreciated before arriving that the cottage backs on to a main road, however, this proved not to be too much of an issue. A lovely week.

Jun 2019

Beautiful property and garden, great for pets. Excellent location near a dog friendly beach, pub restaurants, bus stop and train line. Very thoughtful little touches which made it quite a home from home.

May 2019

A beautifully appointed house, with a lovely enclosed garden. Plenty of room to park. The house has everything you could need for a stay, and has a high quality feel to the furniture and fittings. Ideally located near Lelant Saltings train station. Would happily recommend a stay here.

May 2019

A characterful house, extremely well-equipped and comfortable. The location was excellent, being really near the station for the beautiful train journey to St Ives, and stunning beaches a short car journey away. The very private secure garden was ideal for the family.

Apr 2019

Fantastic stay at this very welcoming excellently equipped cottage. Even the dog felt at home. Thank you

Apr 2019

We had a very comfortable and cosy stay at this well equipped cottage, all appliances are provided and the property is spotless.
