Fishermans Cottage Mousehole

 
 
£450 - £1281
Book

A 200 year old, grade II listed traditional frontline cottage which enjoys incredible views over the harbour and its sandy beaches, the sea and Mount's Bay. Decorated in a traditional but comfortable style the pale blue tones of the sitting room are welcoming and the country style kitchen adds to the homely feel of this family holiday cottage.

Outside the cobbled courtyard is a real sun trap, with a picnic bench for outside dining and taking in those breath taking views. Surrounded by an intricate network of narrow lanes, Fisherman's is close to the centre of the village where you can find gift shops and galleries, excellent restaurants, fish and chippie and a village shop. For a diversion why not try a walk along the coastal path into Newlyn, Penzance and beyond to Marazion, or take the children to the rock pools to catch a crab or two. Further afield try a day out to St. Ives, Land's End or the tin mines in Geevor.

Mousehole Holidays

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.
