Mary's Place, Mousehole
Mousehole

£535 - £1486 per week
Book

Awaken from the cool, crisp linens and as the sun rises over the chimney pots, spot the fishing boats set sail. Mary's Place, sleeping six in the heart of Mousehole, is just moments away from the golden beaches. After a peaceful slumber in the comfortable beds and a typical holiday lie in, venture down to the well equipped kitchen and prepare a banquet breakfast of morning pastries, melting crumpets, fluffy eggs and summer fruits. Mary's Place is a deceptively spacious home, flooded with natural light. Rich in personality, with a calming palette of neutral tones and pastels, the carefully planned decor has an occasional punch of colour. With a hope of another hot summer's day ahead, throw a beach towel over your shoulder and head down to Mousehole's picturesque harbour, just a few steps away.

Spend lazy, sun drenched afternoons on the beach, paddling in the crystal clear waters, building sandcastles or simply resting, with a good book and the comforting warmth of the sun on your skin. With restaurants, gift shops, galleries and an ice cream shop too, there is plenty close at hand. As the afternoon draws to a close, head home to Mary's Place to freshen up for the evening ahead. Set over three floors, with two en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom, each pair has their own space to rinse the day away. Whether you're returning home from enjoying fine dining at 2 Fore Street, or having a medley of Cornish cheeses, artisan breads and Polgoon wine at home, the open plan living area is a sociable space to spend quality time together. When it's time for bed for the little ones, the twin basins in the bathroom make teeth brushing time go smoothly, before tucking up in bed, ready for a bedtime story of courageous pirates or The Mousehole Cat. Welcoming two dogs, Mary's Place is a special home for all the family or a group of friends to make precious, lasting memories.

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.

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.

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.
