Oaken Mews
Mousehole

£407 - £753 per week
Book

With piping hot coffee in hand and freshly made morning pasties from the local delicatessen just a few steps away, enjoy a lazy morning in Oaken Mews modest, but sun trapped, shared courtyard. Tucked away and nestled within the heart of Mousehole, this cosy cottage is an ideal hideaway for two. After a busy day exploring and a refresh in the downstairs, invigorating rainfall shower, cuddle up together on the comfortable sofa for an early evening gin and tonic, before preparing a tantalising supper in the well-equipped kitchen. Just a few minutes' walk leads you to the golden sand of Mousehole's beaches and the picturesque harbour with the colourful fishing boats, gently rocking in the calm, crystal-clear waters. Spend afternoons strolling around the village's gift shops and galleries or ramble along the coastal path to Lamorna Cove with staggering scenery along the way.

Enjoy fine dining at 2 Fore Street overlooking the harbour, share a platter of local produce from Mousehole Deli and Kitchen, or simply grab a Cornish pasty and ice cream, head to the beach and bury your toes within the warm grains of sand. Take a walk alongside the sea and head into neighbouring Newlyn to experience the sensational fish tapas at Mackerel Sky, a takeaway fish and chips supper sitting on the promenade or dine in Newlyn Filmhouse's restaurant, before watching a film in this independent cinema. A short drive will take you to the incredible Minack Theatre and the beautiful beaches at Porthcurno, or head to Sennen Cove for a long, hot summer's day sunbathing or surfing. With so many coastal paths to follow, tropical gardens to visit, beaches to explore and rolling waves to surf, you won't have to venture far from Oaken Mews, to create the most special holiday 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.
