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.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry to hear of your dissapointment. We would always want a property to be 100% for a guests arrival and if for any reason, it is not, we would aim to rectify any areas of concern immediately. I hope that the actions taken at the time, with sending back the housekeeper, improved things for you. We hope that you still had a fantastic time here. Thank you again for getting in touch. Tanya, Customer Services

Resoon is a wonderful family place to stay and we had the most amazing time there. The views are breathtaking and it is a perfect distance to Newlyn or mousehole harbour and a tiny drive to Penzance and all the fabulous beaches around. Aspects left a little welcome bag for my 6 year old that started her holiday off perfectly. It is a special place and we have already booked out return trip next year. Seeing the sun rise and also set from the living room was a treat for the eyes! We loved our time there!

June 2018

Fabulous views of mount bay , sun rises exquisite , boats a plenty ,exciting and ever changing . The pictjurquest windows and balconies add to its beauty and provide a different aspect and elevation . The lights of an evening at Penzance are splendid and or-inspiring in the distance. A joy to behold .

June 2018

We had a lovely holiday. The sea view is fantastic, making it well worth the money. I could not fault the property in any way and having parking made it even better.

June 2018

Had a lovely stay here with our family... the view completely sells this property and I would definetly recommend to a larger family. Great location too:)

May 2018

Stunning views of the bay and St Michael's Mount, plenty of good walks and local eateries. Good transport facilities and parking is a real bonus.

March 2018

A lovely property and we never tired of the fantastic views. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated. The garden was loved by our dog. Would love to retur.

November 2017

A beautiful home with incredible views and easy walk into the lovely town of Mousehole. We would definitely revisit

October 2017

Resoon is in a spectacular position overlooking Mounts Bay and St Michael's Mount, while it is out of Mousehole it is only a 10 minute walk. We choose the property as many properties in Mousehole have no external areas suitable for dogs, so for a doggy friendly holiday the location was perfect for us.
