Morningtide Mousehole

£530 - £1554 per week

Wake up to a fabulous view of the sun rising over the sea horizon, with fishing boats sailing past and views of St Michael's Mount and Mounts Bay. Set in a quite location, Morningtide offers the perfect holiday retreat for a family or two couples. Enjoying sea views from almost every window, a rear courtyard with Mediterranean-inspired pots full of flowers, and a bespoke fitted kitchen, this property won't fail to impress.

Tucked away in a pedestrianised area, Morningtide is a short stroll to the harbour with its restaurants, galleries, and small sandy beach perfect for children. A short drive away you have the vibrant and colourful fishing port of Newlyn, you can potter around the fish market, chat to the guys and buy your freshly caught fish to cook for tea! A real experience. After a busy day exploring this stunning part of West Cornwall you can return to your retreat and snuggle up in front of one of Morningtide's two woodburners and plan your next day ahead.

Mousehole Holidays

Wish you were already here? Watch our Mousehole webcam>

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.

Oct 2019

Morningtide is an exceptionally clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage with excellent sea views. We were fortunate to have a week of glorious weather and thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside watching the sun rise and listening to the seagulls and oystercatchers.

Sep 2019

Very well equipped, suitable for small children as away from traffic but need to be fit to cope with steep climb up to cottage.

Aug 2019

Amazing location and stunning cottage we had a wonderful time at morningtide

Jun 2019

We were blessed with weather that was the hottest week in February on record! This was our first holiday as a couple and I am left with such fond memories of waking up to the sea At Mousehole. We feel Aspects looked after us, phoning us to warn that roadworks were happening and leaving me birthday treats was such a lovely thing to do. Cornwall is so beautiful and the cottage sits in the most perfect location. We won’t forget it and aim to return next year.

Mar 2019

For a family this property is just right. The children's bedroom in the rear is charming and quiet and next to the family bathroom. There is an excellent shower room plus loo downstairs. The main bedrooms are well appointed and very comfortable. As well as a good area to sit in the kitchen - which has everything you could want to produce your own meals - there is a proper, spacious living room. The views are of course great and the position in Mousehole is close enough to walk to everything you might need but not so close as to be noisy.

May 2018

All the positive things, as we really like it.

Apr 2018

The cottage was delightful. We stayed over the Christmas period and the kitchen provided us with all we needed on the cooking front.

The Christmas decorations were lovely around the house and the cottage was warm and welcoming. Mince pies and clotted cream, together with a bottle of Prosecco awaited us on our arrival.

A lovely place to stay and would certainly recommend it.

Dec 2017

We spent a very happy week in Morningtide. The view from the house is of the island and the fishing boats and the glorious sea. Lovely.

Oct 2017

Lovely well appointed and comfy cottage with great views in a fabulous location.

Sep 2017

We were all extremely happy with the accommodation and had a wonderful holiday!

Aug 2017

Our first visit to Cornwall and Morningtide made it very special and memorable. Perfect location, sea views and well equipped.

Jul 2017

Not suitable for disabled or infirm.

Sep 2016

Lovely cottage, with lovely sea views from most rooms. Very suitable for a family (we had a toddler in tow!) with all facilities, crockery, pots and pans provided. The cream tea was a warm welcome too!

Bear in mind that even the local chippy closes about 8pm on a Saturday so, if you're arriving late, best to bring food along to cook.

Jul 2016

Stylish and elegant cottage. Forget boutique hotels and stay here! Comfy bed, sea views, delicious fish dinners in front of the woodburner! (everyday we paid a visit to fishmongers in Newlyn to dine like kings on prawns, crabs, sole.. Yum)
