Mousehole

£665 - £1848 per week

With unrivalled, cinematic coastal views that will take your breath away, the fiery ambers of a morning sunrise as a hot summer's day begins or star gazing in the midnight sky, Love Lane Cottage has a very special and magical charm. In its commanding position and bird's eye view overlooking the charismatic village of Mousehole and harbour, Love Lane Cottage has a pared-back understated essence and rustic charm which throws you into an escape of the stresses of everyday life. With parking for one car and sleeping four, the sitting room, sunroom and bedrooms boast incredible sea views, across to St Michael's Mount and The Lizard. Prepare your hearty breakfast, pour a cup of piping hot coffee and sit in the sunroom, fondly called "The Lookout," to spot the early morning fishing boats setting sail as the sun rises. Love Lane Cottage's separate summerhouse allows you to take a few moments apart from the rest of your family or friends, to enjoy sun salutations on the deck, take in the sea view or just lose yourself in a good book. The secluded, terraced garden offers an emerald lawn with plenty of space to find a peaceful spot to stop and reflect or simply soak up the sunshine. Balmy summer evenings beckon al fresco dining together on the terrace, with a refreshing glass of Cornish wine in the beautiful, established garden. As the daylight fades and the evening draws in, gather up your loved ones and hunker down in front of the warm glow of the woodburner on the crisp winter's evenings and make a plan for the next day's adventures.

Leave the car behind, pack up a picnic and make the short stroll downhill from Love Lane Cottage into the heart of Mousehole and the village's quaint harbour. Spend lazy afternoons paddleboarding in the crystal clear waters, building sandcastles or sunbathing on the golden sand of one of Mousehole's two sandy beaches, or peruse the several gift shops and galleries. With two delicatessens, pub and restaurants with mouth-watering menus, dining out for lunch or dinner is made easy. The climb from the harbour back up the hill to go home to the cottage may be a little challenging for some, but make sure you stop frequently to turn around and admire the view! For keen walkers, continue a little further uphill and pick up the coastal path that leads to the picturesque Lamorna Cove and enjoy a well-deserved paddle as the waves gently lap the shore. Walk along beside the sea to the neighbouring fishing port of Newlyn which hosts several fishmongers, restaurants, pubs, wine bar and an independent cinema. Porthcurno, The Minack Theatre, Sennen Cove and several tropical gardens are just a short drive away, making Love Lane Cottage the perfect choice to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall.

December 2023

Really enjoyed our stay at Love Lane Cottage. The accommodation was excellent- I was initially worried the cottage would be too small as we travelled with our teen children - 15 and 17 so four adults really. However it was super comfortable and the view was breathtaking. Accessing the property via Love Lane was a little hairy as it is a narrow one track dead end however we have a small car so not really a problem though would be nervous if we had a larger vehicle. The beds were comfortable and the WiFi/TV apps great for the kids. I would say that it is a little tight for a family of four to watch TV together but that didn’t really come up as an issue for us. I highly recommend this charming cottage.

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 harbour views and artisan foods at Mousehole Deli & kitchen, 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.
