Agan Chi
Mousehole

£417 - £970 per week
Book

The crystal-clear waves gently lap the shores of the picture-perfect coves in Mousehole's captivating harbour, only a few steps away from this charming cottage. Agan Chi (meaning "Our House" in Cornish), was formerly the village fish and chip shop, until a few years ago and has now been lovingly restored to create a comfortable home. Set over three floors and welcoming up to three guests, sea glimpses can be enjoyed from both the top floor and from the shared decking area in the courtyard. With the beach so close at hand, grab a cup of velvety smooth Cornish coffee from the harbour front deli, just around the corner and make a perfect start to your day, peacefully sitting on the beach, burying your toes within the grains of golden sand.

Ideally located to explore the wonders of this picturesque village, Agan Chi is moments away from galleries, gift shops, delicatessens and a choice of places to eat and drink. Enjoy fine dining at 2 Fore Street on the harbour front or The Old Coastguard, or have a light lunch at the Rockpool Café, with a cold glass of your favourite tipple in hand. Take a stroll along the path beside the sea leading towards the neighbouring fishing village of Newlyn, for "must do" visits for delicious fish tapas at Mackerel Sky and homemade ice cream at the legendary Jelbert's Ice Cream shop. Venture along the coastal path from Mousehole, enjoying staggering views leading to the beautiful Lamorna Cove to paddle in the turquoise waters, or take the car to visit the wonderful Minack Theatre, Pedn Vounder Beach, Sennen Cove and Marazion, to view the incredible St Michael's Mount, all within a short drive away. After a busy day exploring, Agan Chi's cosy sitting room with mood lighting is an ideal place to relax and plan the following day. The location of this delightful cottage is a perfect base to create lasting memories within the heart of Mousehole and this beautiful corner of West Cornwall.

Holidays in Mousehole

Mousehole is an idyllic village and fishing port with quaint cobbled streets full of bistros and art-galleries. Sit on the harbour and admire views of St Michael’s Mount or take a short drive to nearby Marazion to walk along the golden sands.

Mousehole is a great community with a fantastic atmosphere, and self catering in Mousehole is effortless. Enjoy afternoon tea at the Tremayne Tea Room or sit down for an evening meal at 2 Fore Street, a French bistro-style restaurant on Mousehole harbour front. Finish off your evening with a pint of local ale at the Ship Inn, one of the famous St Austell Brewery establishments. For more info, read our blog post on Eating out in Mousehole.

Visit at Christmas and experience the magical Mousehole Lights display!

Things to do in Mousehole

Mousehole is best when entered on foot, or bus, or bike. Cars are not the way to see Mousehole and best left outside. If you have to bring a car, there’s a big car park on the Penzance side of the village, close to The Old Coastguard Hotel.

Christmas lights

Mousehole has celebrated Christmas with beautiful lights for 40 years! The village is a winter wonderland in the dark nights and grey seas of winter. Many villages have light shows today but Mousehole is special. Holiday cottages overlooking the harbour always enjoy an extra special Cornish Christmas. Read more on our blog about Mousehole lights.

Walks around Mousehole

For those who are not so content with staying in their holiday homes, the walks around Mousehole are a joy all year round.  There are some fabulous circular walks but we think there's something particularly satisfying about catching a bus from Mousehole and walking back in (especially if your walk exits the village in a north of westerly direction; you'll soon discover the town is nestled at the bottom of a very steep hill!)  Read our blog on Mousehole Walks.

Coasteering in Mousehole

If you're seeking adrenaline and adventure, check out Coasteering Adventures.

Mousehole is one of Cornwall’s top Coasteering destinations. Nestled in the shelter of Mounts Bay, Mousehole offers multiple coasteering routes for all ages and abilities. Coasteering Adventures are thrilled to be the exclusive provider of coasteering from this location. Book an adventure and you will experience cliff jumping, sea swimming, climbing, bouldering, exploring caves and floating through gullies. With each session tailored to the group, you can choose the level that you are comfortable with.

Dating back to the 13th century Mousehole has a rich history tying it to the sea. 1595 saw all but 1 house (which still stands today) burned to the ground by the Spanish armada. 100 Years later Mousehole became a haven for the ‘Barbary Pirates’ with a number of caves on the route being where their treasure was hidden. During the 1800’s Mousehole settled into a thriving fishing village and you’ll regularly see the small fishing boats from Mousehole pass our groups whilst out on route.

A brief history of Mousehole

Today Mousehole is beautiful and welcoming holiday destination This popular holiday destination has seen more than its fair share of hardtimes tragedy over the years.

The Quay was built in 1392, holding the harbour like a pair of protective arms. Fishing was always important to Mousehole. These days there are fewer boats fishing from the village but there is an active fishing fleet operating out of nearby Newlyn, a town worth a visit on its own account. Read more about the History of Mousehole on our blog.

Wherever you want to go, our Mousehole self catering cottages make an ideal base from which to explore the towns and villages of West Cornwall.

Events

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

Every year, the people of Mousehole celebrate the bravery of Tom Bawcock. Years ago, when the boats couldn't get out in the storms, the villages had no fish to eat. Tom dared to take his boat out and returned with enough fish to make a Star Gazey fish pie for the whole village.
