October 2020

Mousehole has remained a charming and relaxing village for the past 20 years we have spent many wonderful family holidays visiting. Aspects are a reliable and efficient company to book through. This year we stayed in Niver Dewdhek a charming property ideally situated with ease of dropping off luggage and shopping then park on the main road a few meters from the house. It was comfortable and well organised particularly for the pandemic period. As an autumn break we enjoyed wonderful walks along the coast returning to a log fire and wine chilled to perfection in the wine cooler. A hot shower and comfortable bed ensured a restful evening

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.

House was perfect in a wonderful location. Clean & comfortable. Great view.

Aspects' communication skills could be better.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your holiday, though we are very sorry to read that you felt our commination skills could have been better. Having looked further into this, we can see that a member of our Penzance team responded to your initial email straight away, so we can only apologise if you have not received this response. It may have gone into your junk folder. We would always respond to any email or voicemail as soon as we possibly can and are very disappointed that you have been left feeling ignored; that is not the kind of service that we would want to deliver. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your holiday; it certainly sounds like this property was perfect for you, so hopefully we will see you back here again and next time, you will get to experience the level of service and communication that we pride ourselves on. Lucy, Customer Services

Aspect holidays is a fantastic company hot in customer care and service. Unfortunately the owners of the property had not been specific enough regarding outdoor space or should I say major lack of it. This property whilst the interior is of a very high standard and is a wonderful location with sea views, it does not lend itself to being able to accommodate a family of 5 with wetsuits and boards. There is no suitable space to be able to dry your equipment and the bins overflowing with rubbish when we arrived. There is access only to the rear of the property which was needs to be made clearer for all guests as neighbours can be an issue.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It was a shame to hear that there had been a misunderstanding with the outside area adjoining Niver Dewdhek. Unfortunately, this property does not have any outdoor space and is not advertised as having any, as is the case with many old fisherman's cottages in fishing villages such as Mousehole. We can understand how it may be presumed that the courtyard can be used, as it adjoins the property, so to try and avoid any confusion, the owners have included a note within the welcome book to highlight that it doesn't belong to them but can be used as a right of way. Additionally, we have now also included a note on the booking receipt. Whilst there is no outside space, we hope that you agree that the location and standard of property, with all its charm and character, well and truly make up for this. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous & characterful house. Superbly located. Would return in a flash! Would be a wonderful destination at any time of year.

Accommodation arranged over three floors with narrow stair cases. Front door is right on main road into Mousehole so can be quite busy. However, the views to read are wonderful and the location is perfect for village access. No parking at property, but local parking (within a two minute walk) is cheap and readily available (we went in December). Would recommend this property and would stay again if we returned.

The cottage is very comfortable. There is more than enough of everything, glasses, crockery, pots and pans so if you don't want to go out you don't need to. We have had three years there and would certainly book again next year if we are returning to Mousehole.

Niver Dewdhek is a well positioned property with plenty of space for a larger family to go on holiday. It is conveniently near a reasonably priced car park and for access to the village itself. Although it is on the main road into Mousehole it is still reasonably quiet. I enjoyed staying in this property with my family and would certainly stay there again.

A spacious, stylish holiday house with a lovely relaxing atmosphere. You unwind as you arrive and it has everything you could wish for. You can even see seals on Clements Isle from the shower! We love Niver Dewdhek and can’t wait to return.

A pleasant cottage in a great location a ‘stone’s throw’ from Mousehole harbour. Great for a family or two couples but probably not suitable for very young children due to the steep stairs. Spacious lounge with views of the sea including the Scillonian passing by twice a day. There’s a large well equipped kitchen with an equally large dining area. The bedrooms were comfortable and alongside a modern bathroom with sea views whilst in the shower!

Mousehole has great shops and places to eat and fresh fish from Newlyn just down the road is a must. If you want to treat yourself you can’t do better than No.2 Fore Street but it’s popular so best to book.

We had a wonderful week in Niver Dewdhek. The house is like a home away from away. Really well equipped with lovely homely features. Comfortable beds. Sea views to drink your coffee in the morning and then 2 minute walk down a path to the sea to beautiful Mousehole

The cottage is beautiful. If you didn't want to go out staying in would have been a pleasure. There is everything you need to make yourself comfortable and happy.

A beautiful well equipped cottage with sea views with easy access to the beach. Very tastefully furnished with lovely ceramics and paintings. A memorable stay

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

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

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

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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!

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

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.

Niver Dewdhek is a stunning,homely , comfortable cottage. It can be a place to just relax and enjoy Mousehole with it's cafes,shops and restaurants. It? is also a great base to explore Cornwall.

Wonderful, very well equipped, cottage with plenty of space, beautiful views right in the centre of Mousehole. What more can you ask for!!

Lovely house, comfortably decorated and nice sea view. Noisy location at its on the main road through Mousehole and opposite the garage.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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!

Comfortable, homely and well equipped, with a relaxing seaside ambience in a lovely location. Very good value, I would - and will - definitely return!

Stunning views coupled with a great location and tasteful furnishings make this the perfect place to enjoy the best of Cornwall.

A excellent property in an idyllic location. You cannot help but feel refreshed.
