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.

Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

A fantastic property - we have rented more than 20 properties in Mousehole over the years, and this one was the best by far - so much so that we have already booked for next year! If you are hesitating - don't! You can't beat the views and the beautiful coastal walk to either Mousehole or Newlyn.

Very clean and comfortable accommodation with great views. Easy walk into Mousehole and Newlyn for shops, pubs and restaurants. Perfect!

Great escape pad. Plenty of room and well furnished. The beds were comfortable and the house was very well insulated should you happen to be there during a stormy November, for example... Stunning, uninterrupted views across the Bay from the lounge and 3 of the bedrooms. Great location and Mousehole and Newlyn are easily walkable from the property. National cycle track #3 on the doorstep giving a very safe cycle ride along the coast through to Marazion Great size kitchen in which to have breakfast and plan the day ahead. It was well stocked with all the utensils and equipment you need. 1 parking space for large car and a free lay-by directly opposite if needed. Would definitely recommend for small or larger group.

Our party of 4 had a great week despite the weather being wet and gusty at times.The house was well placed for walking to Mousehole or Newlyn and Penzance and short car trips to Marazion and St Just and Pendeen lighthouse. The views from Resoon are excellent and the enclosed garden was a favourite to sit in when weather allowed!

Resoon ist ein sehr schönes Haus. Man hat traumhafte Ausblicke auf das Meer und St Michael's Mount. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Das Haus hat eine perfekte Ausgangslage für Ausflüge. Supermärkte und Restaurants sind gut zu erreichen.

What a fantastic holiday we had at Resoon. Wonderful cottage with spectacular views, can’t wait to return.

We loved staying at Resoon. The views are absolutely stunning and the beds are so comfortable. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly want provided in the house. The large gardens are fully enclosed and are really well maintained with lots of seating areas. Particularly enjoyed sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sun go down! Resoon is located within walking distance of Mousehole, which is a picturesque, quaint village with some lovely places to eat, pubs and art galleries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Resoon and can't wait to go back again.

Absolutely fantastic house with stunning views and easy walk to both Mousehole and Newlyn. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, we had everything we needed. The garden was also beautiful and you could happily just sit and gaze at the wonderful view. We had a wonderful week and would love to come again. Would highly recommend.

We have just returned from a new year break at Resoon after admiring the property for a few years. It did not disappoint. The views are beautiful and we could chose each day to walk to Newlyn or Mousehole. The regular bus service was perfect for my elderly parents. The house is fully equipped with everything you need so couldn’t ask for more. Will definitely be back

Resoon was an absolutely ideal holiday location. We visited over the Christmas week, 7 of us and a dog. The location was perfect - equidistant between the villages of Mousehole and Newlyn, and a very short distance from Penzance. Plenty of supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Lovely for the dog - the garden was completely secure, and plenty of places to take him for beachy walks, and dog friendly meals out. The house was well equipped and very comfortable, and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend Resoon and we intend to return.

The location and property were excellent. We had a great week and would definitely recommend Resoon. We hope to return sometime......

Cannot fault the location of this property

We had a lovely holiday at Resoon. The property was decorated to a good standard and the views from the garden and the windows was exceptional. We would not hesitate to stay in this property again.

The location of Resoon was stunning. Loved the views from all the windows, garden and balconies across to the sea. We found it hard to leave the cottage as it was so very lovely. Very thoughtfully designed and beautiful furnishings. Beds comfy, too and the snug area for kids was great. Handy for walking to Mousehole or Newlyn in the evenings, too - safe pavement rather than country lane. Loved it!!! Hope we will be lucky enough to return one day - we’d be back in a blink if it wasn’t a ten hour drive.

We really enjoyed our family stay at Resoon (8 adults). The property is spacious, modern and well equipped and located just a short walk into Mousehole or Newlyn. Being able to park 2 cars easily was a huge bonus and unusual around Mousehole. The sea view from the sitting room and three of the four bedrooms was amazing whatever the weather!

This is a superb property, in a fantastic location. Really handing to have a parking spot at the property and only a 10 minute walk into the village. The garden is fantastic and very dog friendly. The property is very well designed and equipped with everything you need and more. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Resoon and would like to return in the future.

Wonderful view but overall disappointing.

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!

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 .

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.

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:)

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.

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.

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

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.
