Book

Fisherman's Square is a surprisingly spacious coastal retreat for four guests, which combines super stylish interiors with jaw-dropping views across the harbour. Heading upstairs from the living areas, both beautiful double bedrooms sit on the first floor at opposite ends of the cottage. The master bedroom benefits from a quite delightful, en suite bathroom where you can relax in a big bubbly bath at the end of your day. Come daybreak, there is nothing quite like waking up to the lapping of the waves below. Head outside and enjoy your morning coffee from one of the most coveted positions in the village; with unrivalled harbour views from the cobbled courtyard garden, yet peacefully tucked away from the crowds, you'll be in your very own piece of paradise.

From Fisherman's Square you can pass the time watching the harbour bobbing with colourful fishing boats. The cottage sits in perfect proximity to rocky coves, sweeping beaches and coast paths allowing you to make the most of every day. After a day exploring, snuggle into the deep sofas with good conversation and a glass of your favourite tipple in front of the mesmerising open fire. The welcoming local pub is just a stroll away, where you are sure to get into the holiday spirit.

Beautifully and very tastefully decorated cottage. Loved the artwork. Very quiet, peaceful and private location but very central to the village and all its amenities. My sister and I had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Mousehole is a true romantic gem of Cornwall too and very friendly too especially the helpful car park man at the public Harbour car park. Highly recommended.

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.

Mousehole Sea Salts & 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.

Places to visit near Mousehole

Venture near or far, with NewlynPorthcurno 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.

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.

This was our second visit to Fisherman’s Square and it definitely won’t be our last. It’s an absolutely amazing holiday cottage in a perfect location!

Fisherman Square is idyllic and beautiful. We couldn’t have chosen a better cottage and location.It is a stones throw from the harbour front and is just relaxing watching the tides coming and going Mousehole is a very friendly place to stay with lovely places to eat and good walks with fresh fish available in newlyn harbour. Hoping to be back next year

The most beautiful place we have ever stayed at in Mousehole village and we have stayed lots of times.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location!

Wow, Wow, Wow! Absolutely fabulous location! The artwork, fixtures and fittings were astonishing! To see such beautiful original artwork in a holiday let is astounding! The mix of antique pieces alongside modern pieces of furniture was fantastic and worked really well. We will definitely be returning to Fisherman’s Square, we had a wonderful holiday, thank you.

An outstanding Cornish cottage in an unbeatable location. Really enjoyed leaving the car behind, stepping on to the sand and wandering to the many great places to eat in the gorgeous village of Mousehole. The cottage was beautifully presented throughout and the view made for another memorable and relaxing Cornish holiday. Would love to stay here again.

Fabulous, spacious and wonderfully decorate home on the harbour front at Mousehole. Master bedroom looks straight out of the harbour. You could not get a better location. Well equipped kitchen for those that don’t want to go out every night and washing machine and dryer for dealing with all that active gear. Note, second bedroom is a mezzanine so open to the kitchen so really this is a very spacious couples, young family retreat. Oh and dogs are allowed so big bonus. Highly recommended.

Stunning property, very well equipped. Beautifully presented and immaculate on arrival.The views are stunning. Aspects Holidays communication was first class, would I book with them again .... absolutely. Amanda Aubrey

Fantastic location, superbly well equipped cottage. Just watching the daily activity of the harbour was brilliant.

We have stopped in many cottages in Mousehole over the years but this is the best spot in the whole village. The sunrise is spectacular to watch from the bed and the sun beams on the terrace in the morning. The cottage inside is better than the photos show and the view took our breath away! We loved it so much we have another two weeks booked!

Fabulous cottage. Quirky, arty interior with all the comforts of home. Peaceful location, just the lapping of the waves to lull you to sleep. We really enjoyed our week at Fisherman’s Square, a cottage we shall definitely return to and thoroughly recommend.

We have just returned from the most fabulous week at Fisherman's Square, Mousehole. The cottage was incredible, beautifully decorated and furnished. The location was fabulous and we spent many hours watching the harbour. We really hope to return very soon.

We had a wonderful week staying at Fishermans Square, what a fantastic location. The cottage was immaculate and was equipped with everything we needed. Even though it was October we sat outside in the mornings to see a beautiful sunrise. We would love to return!

Fabulous location right on the water's edge. Simply the best spot we have ever stayed in at Mousehole. Spent many enjoyable hours just watching the harbour change both with the tides and weather. Very comfy property with a slighy quirky but totally fascinating decor.

Had an amazing week at fisherman's Square. Cottage was beautifully furnished throughout. Ver clean and comfortable. The location is excellent and the view is to die for! I definitely recommend.
