Morningtide is an excellent property with lovely views in the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole, the property is very spacious yet still feels quite cosy. Our party comprised those aged from 5 to 78 years of age, the layout and facilities are excellent so a great time was had by all. This was our second visit, the secure, available parking about 1/2 mile from the cottage this year was very welcome. We can highly recommend this cottage for people of all ages, especially for family groups. My five year old granddaughter is already asking for a return visit next year!

October 2023

It’s was our second visit to Morningtide and we will be coming back. Mousehole is stunning and perfect. The property is a walk up to mid level and it means you’re away from the main tourist area. I woke up early each morning so I could look at the fishing boats going back and forth. Cosy bed, great shower and good kitchen facilities. Chatty, friendly next door neighbours joined us to watch the electric storm at sea. We didn’t stray further than Newlyn it was so perfect. Thank you Aspects and see you next time Morningtide.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We loved this house. A family of four with two teenage children (so they had a room each). Quietly tucked away just out of the village with great sea views. Access to a downstairs shower/toilet was great to avoid dragging beach stuff through the house. The open plan kitchen diner was spacious and well equipped. If you’re looking for a typical Cornish cottage this is not it but it is a lovely holiday home. We would definitely go back to Morningtide.

It’s was our second visit to Morningtide and we will be coming back. Mousehole is stunning and perfect. The property is a walk up to mid level and it means you’re away from the main tourist area.

Fantastic house for ALL ages, our family party ranged in age from 4 - 77, we found Morningtide very spacious, yet very cosy, well furnished with excellent facilities. The welcome pack was great; everything was extremely clean and all appliances worked as they should. Although the central heating worked well the provision of two log burners was very welcome on an Autumn evening to give a cosy feel, however the burner in the lounge is quite small and will need shorter logs than normal to work well. The location is very quiet with lovely neighbours, the views are amazing and the location ideal, just five minutes to the wonderful Mousehole harbour with its two beaches. We have no reservations is recommending Morningtide to visitors of all ages who want to visit the wonderful far west of Cornwall with its rugged coastline and lovely beaches..

We had a great holiday at Morningtide. The directions and arrival information were perfect.

The house is located away from the main village and is very quiet, but only a few minutes walk from 2 good cafés and the harbour with all its amenities. It is spacious and well furnished with a great view to St Michael’s Mount. Having a downstairs shower near the back door was great for sandy kids and the tumble dryer in particular was much appreciated!

We would definitely stay here again.

Very smooth service from Aspects and lovely accommodation

Aspects were extremely helpful when we were put in a tricky situation with our previous booking with them. We left them to choose an alternative and they excelled all our expectations with Morningtide. A stunning property with beautiful views, a fair walk to the other end of Mousehole away from the main area meant a quiet holiday. The property was well equipped and spotlessly clean. We are now looking at returning. I’ve been recommending Aspects and Morningtide since our return. The perfect holiday with the most thoughtful company. Thank you.

Our second stay at Morningtide. Beautiful quiet location, well equipped spotlessly clean cottage with great views of sunrise. Very friendly neighbours. Hope to return very soon.

We had an excellent experience and holiday at Morningtide. The whole service is super efficient and friendly. Aspects gets our custom year after year and it is consistently good.

Morningside is a lovely, spacious and well equipped cottage with a great sea view. We really enjoyed our stay there. Not suitable for those with mobility issues as cottage does not have on site parking and available parking at the harbourside carparks is limited. The beds are very comfortable and plenty of storage space. The neighbour is very friendly and gave us lots of info about Mousehole. We would definitely visit again.

We have just returned from a delightful week’s stay at Morningtide. The house more than lived up to expectations; the location is wonderful with great sea views which we enjoyed with a cup of coffee of a morning and a glass of wine in the evening. Everything we could possibly need was provided, even little touches like kitchen foil and Tupperware for impromptu beach picnics. The house was exactly as photographed, very stylish and comfortable. I have seen another review about the lounge not being comfortable, but this wasn’t our opinion - there were lots of places to sit/lounge and footstools to prop up our tired legs as well as a log fire (with logs provided) if the evening got chilly. We loved Morningtide so much that we booked to come back next year before we had even left!

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely week at Morningtide, just as lockdown was easing. Mousehole is a lovely town, with a quaint harbour frontage, and small windy streets. A few places were still closed due to restrictions, but we ate at 2 Fore Street while we were there, and the Delhi is excellent (make sure you book well in advance at 2 Fore Street). Morningtide is at one end of the town, overlooking the sea. Access by car is interesting, small windy streets and limited parking, but tbh once you're in it is fine. We ended up parking in the layby at the opposite end of town most of the week, a 10-15 min walk from Morningtide. We also did a couple of long walks from Mousehole ... the winding path to Larmorna was quite interesting in places, for example.

Obviously the main attraction apart from Mousehole itself, is the easy access to other beautiful places in Cornwall ... The Minak Theatre and the beaches nearby being a highlight, we also did Lands End, St Ives and St Michael's Mount (which you can see from Morningtide - The Gin in The Godolphin was another highlight :D, especially on a sunny day overlooking the island)

Great location for its proximity to the town and the view of the sea. The living room isn’t the comfiest which is worth noting if you’re likely to spend a lot of time in there, however the kitchen is very well equipped!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, the views from there certainly are fantastic; glad to hear that you enjoyed them. We are sorry that you did not find the living room that comfortable. Comfort can be quite specific to the individual, so it can be difficult for owners to furnish them in a way that will suit everyone, and it is disappointing to hear that it was not to your preference. We will of course closely monitor for further feedback on this though and thank you again for letting us know your thoughts. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a fantastic week in Mousehole. Morningtide is a very comfortable and charming holiday cottage with wonderful sea views. It's location is great - on the quieter side of the village - although driving in Mousehole is quite an experience! The kitchen is wonderfully kitted out - excellent knives, chopping boards, pots, pans, etc. Cooking was a pleasure! The bathrooms are also great - large, walk-in shower in the bathroom downstairs and a bath upstairs. Very comfortable beds and black out blinds in all the bedrooms. Washing machine and tumble dryer were very useful. Very friendly and welcoming neighbours too! A great place to stay and a wonderful base to explore the area. Highly recommend 2 Fore Street in Mousehole for meals - eat in and take away.

Advice on parking - we left our car in the car park near the Rock Pool Cafe as driving through the village is quite hair-raising! The roads are very narrow and winding and wide enough for only one car. Be prepared to pay for parking in coins though. £9 for 24 hours in the large car park. It was cheaper in the 2 smaller car parks but we couldn't find space.

Good location

Very spacious and well equipped. Views over the sea. Not suitable for elderly as quite a climb to reach.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

A lot of the fishing villages in Cornwall are quite hilly and Mousehole is no exception. Depending on which route you take to get to the property and where you are walking from, there are some steeper sections than others, though you can find some walks back to the property that will be on a mostly gradual incline if you don't mind taking the more 'scenic' route. If this is something that is a concern, if you are looking to return, please do not hesitate to speak to one of the team who are always happy to help and share their knowledge of the local area and suitability for those with any mobility issues. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely place to stay, close to shops and eateries, warm welcome. Enjoyed thoroughly.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

All the positive things, as we really like it.

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.

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.

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

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

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

Not suitable for disabled or infirm.

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.

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)
