Inter Nos
Mousehole

£545 - £1270 per week
Book

Crabbing in rockpools or hunting for special shells, paddleboarding on the calm, clear waters or simply building sandcastles on one of the sandy coves; Inter Nos, is located only a few steps away from hours of enjoyment for all the family. Inter Nos (meaning "between us") was originally converted from a workshop by two brothers and in times gone by, it was believed to be a coachman's rest. This spacious, family friendly home, is just moments away from Mousehole's picturesque harbour. Spend your mornings relaxing in the upstairs sitting room flooded with light, sipping a piping hot cup of Cornish coffee, whilst watching the fishing boats set sail for their daily catch, and waiting for the little ones to stir. After a fun-filled day exploring, wash off those sandy toes in the downstairs shower room before heading into the well-equipped kitchen to prepare a delicious supper using the freshest, local produce. Bedtime stories of Mousehole's legend and tales of smugglers, Stargazey Pie and The Mousehole Cat, are sure to lead to a dream filled slumber. When it's time for the adults to relax, pour a cold glass of Cornish gin and tonic, and from over the rooftops, watch the sun melt over the ocean. In December, don a woolly hat and scarf to enjoy the Christmas lights in the harbour with either a mug of hot chocolate or a glass of warm mulled wine in hand.

Tear yourselves away from the golden sands of Mousehole's harbour to wander around the village's gift shops, galleries and delicatessens. Take the coastal path to Lamorna and paddle in the turquoise sea at the cove. Grab a blanket or two and watch a show at the Minack Theatre with an outstanding backdrop, after spending a lazy afternoon on the tropical Pedn Vounder Beach. Try surfing lessons at Sennen Cove or enjoy a mouth-watering Jelbert's ice cream in neighbouring Newlyn. Enjoy picnic lunches on the beach or have a seat with a sea view at Mousehole's Rockpool Cafe. Dine at 2 Fore Street and The Old Coastguard for some of Mousehole's finest cuisine. Head onto Penzance Promenade to enjoy a simple fish and chip supper beside the sea or visit the Medieval themed Newlyn Meadery for their rustic chicken and chips. Whether it's a family holiday or a group of friends gathering together to make some precious, life-long memories, Inter Nos is a perfect choice for a wonderful stay within the enchanted village of Mousehole.

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.

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.

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.
