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.

Excellently appointed accommodation with fantastic sea views and easy access to harbour

June 2018

We have stayed at Niver Dewhdek twice & hoping for a third. I think that shows how much we like it!

March 2018

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location, however take care if booking during Christmas week as you could have a view from your window of food stalls running a noisy generator

Thank you for your feedback, and great to hear that you liked the cottage. Mousehole is famous for its Christmas display, so can be very busy at that time of year. In the past, food stalls had never been located there, and we had not heard that this had been planned this year, so came as a suprise to us also. For the village as a whole, they seemed to be a great addition and added to the atmosphere, but appreciate that you may not have been expecting anything like this outside; we are really sorry if this caused any disturbance during your stay, and hope that you still had a great week. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a lovely week in Niver Dewdhek. the cottage was very comfortable, very well equipped and it made out holiday just perfect. The weather was even good to us.

Lovely cottage, great location (we LOVED Mousehole) and beautifully decorated, perfect place for a minimoon especially when the fire's roaring!

September 2017

cannot fault the property with the views of the sea, just short walk down to the harbour, the bus to penzance stops outside the door. the parking permit for the private parking at the school is a must. the cream tea we had on arrival was yummy and well appreciated. thank you for a lovely holiday

August 2017

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. Less than a minutes walk from the harbour but not directly on it so it's not too noisey. Incredibly comfortable and feels so homely with lots of character. A wonderful base for exploring this end of Cornwall.

Thank you for your feedback; we are delighted to hear that you liked it here. We always try to make our website descriptions as accurate as possible, and whilst we meniton that it is a stroll from the harbour, and the map on the webpage shows that it is on the main road, we appreciate that this can be easily missed, so have now added the detail that it is on the main road, to our description. Thank you for highlighting this. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a fantastic time at Niver Dewdheck, a real home from home only a stone's throw from the Harbour. The only downside is having to go home at the end of the holiday!
