Mousehole Holidays

Wish you were already here? Watch our Mousehole webcam>

Mousehole is a great community with a fantastic atmosphere, and self catering in Moushole 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.

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.

Mousehole Sea Salts & Sail Festival

Taking place every two years, this maritime festival celebrates Mousehole's fishing heritage with traditional sailing boat races and many other activities and entertainment for the whole family. 2014 was the festival's tenth biennial festival, taking place on the 11th, 12th & 13th July.  Read our blog post from the event here: Sea Salts and Sail Festival.

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.

Things to do near Mousehole

Venture near or far, with Newlyn, Porthcurno and Marazion all within a short drive or the cobbled streets of St Ives and the surfing beach of Sennen a little further away. Visit Penzance town to do some light shopping or head to Jubilee Pool to cool down after a long day of exploring. 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.

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 well equipped cottage in a lovely village

June 2018

A beautiful cottage steps from the harbour and local pubs/restaurants, we hope to return soon

March 2018

This cottage was our favourite so far in the village of Mousehole.

December 2017

A cute cottage - as illustrated. A modern touch to the interiors but still retains its character. Would recommend. Mousehole is such a beautiful place.

September 2017

Lovely cottage for a small family decorated nicely with a relaxing sitting/ dining room. We found it fine for four but could be tight for space for six. Traffic is close to front door but short walk to harbour. We had a lovely week.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to read how much you liked Dove Cottage; it is certainly packed full of charm and character there! Its location straight onto one of the little streets in the middle of the village, is definitely something to bear in mind, and be aware of when booking, so we ensure that this is highlighted in the description. We hope that it was everything that you expected and hoped for, and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Property was great really clean, tidy and fresh, nice layout we really liked the nice bed linen and towles. Decoration very much like straight out of the White company catalogue. We thought it was a perfect location even during the busy month of July where Cornwall is full of tourists. We appreciated and loved the fresh scones, clotted cream and jam. A perfect welcome to Moushole after the long drive. Also very convenient to find fresh milk in the fridge. We really liked the shop Hole Food next door as they bake fresh bread every morning and the Sourdough was amzing still warm when you pick it up at 9 p.m. Proximity to an excellent Brasserie: 2 Fore Street was another highlight and really to recommend as the food was outstanding and no need to drive home after a fantastic Saturday night out. The kids loved the rock pool (again walking distance 2 min) and just eating Ice cream in the harbour. We had a fantastic family holiday and the property was amazing, the description of the property online was spot on. Thank you very much!

July 2017

Beautiful cottage, lovely white washed seaside decor and in a great location. We loved mousehole, it is very quaint and pretty fishing village. We found the people to be super friendly and helpful. Recommend the Forge restaurant. Great food and service.

June 2017

Dove cottage in in an excellent location with harbour parking within 100 yards at a very reasonable weekly rate of £21. Also an excellent Fish & Chip shop 3 doors away, although I wished they stayed open a little later. 8 pm is too early to close.

The maximum occupation of 4 adults and 2 children would be very crowded in my opinion. The kitchen is well appointed for self catering, plus you can always get a few chips to save cooking.
