The apartment is stunning and views are incredible. I already miss walking into the kitchen to that view every morning! The only thing that would stop us from going back would be the lack of parking and the fact you rely on getting a space in the pay and display car park every day which meant that we were hesitant to go and explore other places as we had a few really stressful experiences trying to find a space and getting stuck in those narrow roads. But this had nothing to do with the apartment as such. If you are happy to go, park up and just stick to mousehole then there would be no stress. We just found mousehole a little on the small side which is fully our own issue for not realising how tiny it is! That being said we were more than happy to stay in the apartment, it’s so beautiful and feels like you’re outside with all the natural light and so many windows. I would 100% recommend the apartment but as already mentioned, Mousehole itself was maybe a little quite for us. We had an issue with the bath leaking on the first night but this was very quickly resolved the following day and the members of staff I spoke to to let them know, were all really helpful and friendly. If you want to go to Mousehole, I can’t imagine a better property to stay at. We really do miss it already!

Very well appointed apartment in a fantastic location. Pity there was no outside area to sit in but hey ho you can't have everything. View over the harbour to die for.

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.

Aspects were fantastic from start to finish. We stayed at st Clements ( lobster pot) and it was stunning, so much so that we’ve booked for next year, loved it.

1 month ago

We had a fantastic stay. The location is incredible, overlooking the harbour at the boats and the sea. The apartment is roomy and very well equipped and is a peaceful place to be if the weather is not so great, with some games and books to enjoy.The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms nice and modern. We will definitely be coming back!

Stunning apartment with amazing views in beautiful Mousehole.Totally recommended-we will be back next year. Many thanks to the Aspects team-the flat was spotless.

1 month ago

This is the perfect place to rent in the winter months when you don't need an outside space but want a sea view; it's warm and cosy and the views are truly magnificent. It absolutely lives up to the photographs on the website. I'd go back in the blink of an eye.

Feb 2020

If you want sea and harbour views, comfort, good kitchen and bathroom facilities and a lovely light filled place to start your day, this place is for you.

Jan 2020

Beautiful apartment with views out of this world. This year it rained most of the week. No problem we just made more use of the beautiful apartment.

Watching the waves crashing on St Clement's Island was truly fantastic.

Aspect staff always willing to help if you need anything.

Nov 2019

I would find it hard to believe that there is a holiday cottage in Cornwall that offers a more perfect combination of comfort, equipment and location than St. Clements. But then, I am biased. I first stayed at The Lobster Pot some 49 years ago, and it has been in and out of my life through many of the intervening years. When I first stayed at The Pot it was an eccentric establishment of two storeys, but, having been cobbled together out of two or three small cottages, there must have been at least six floor levels as one passed from cottage to cottage. The second floor, which now forms St. Clements, was not added until the 1980s, if I remember correctly, but that gives it the advantage of being all on a single level, which means that the conversion into the present apartment works exceedingly well. It is so comfortable and well equipped that on a dull, wet and windy day, such as the Monday of the week I stayed here, it is no hardship to stay put, potter and watch the world go by. When the weather is more amenable St. Clements is ideally placed for walking, and the circular route along the Coast Path to Lamorna (much eroded since I first knew it) and back via Castallack, Sheffield and Paul is just the thing to set you up for a good lunch or tea! These days I travel from my home in the Yorkshire Dales by train and getting about from Mousehole is no problem with buses to Penzance very twenty minutes, or an hour's walk to Penzance railway station.

Oct 2019

What a beautiful apartment in a fabulous location. We loved Mousehole, especially watching the sunrise over the harbour. I don’t think I’d like to stay anywhere else. This was the perfect apartment and would definitely return.

Oct 2019

One of the best apartments we have stayed in, position was perfect, the views from the kitchen and lounge second to none, we will be back Graham Button

Sep 2019

A fabulous place, fantastic location with the view over the harbour. The house was really comfy and relaxing and would definitely stay there again...the wife would like to buy it if she could lol...!

Aug 2019

Aspects holidays perfect in every way great to deal with

Jul 2019

This was our third stay at St Clements and again, we loved every minute of our holiday. From the ease of booking with Aspects Holidays to the detailed arrival information/pack. The stunning apartment enjoys the most amazing views out to sea and around the beautiful harbour of Mousehole. The apartment is incredibly well presented and furnished with high end, quality appliances and furniture throughout. St Clements is spotlessly clean, with everything you could ever possibly need during your stay. There's a detailed pack in the apartment with instructions for all the white goods and appliances at St Clements, along with suggested places to visit and eat. We ate locally most nights and can highly recommend 2 Fore St (booking essential), Rock Pool Cafe (the most amazing views from here) and Four Teas Cafe. We also recommend walking from Mousehole to Lamorna Cove, using the coastal path. The route can be slightly challenging in some areas but well worth it for the fabulous views of the coast. We have already booked our fourth stay for next year.

Jul 2019

This is a beautiful apartment with one of the finest views in Mousehole. We never fail to enjoy it's comforts'. However this year we felt let down by the standard of cleanliness.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry that there were some areas of cleaning that were not to the high level that you would have expected, we can only apologise if anything had been missed. Having now received this feedback, it was followed up with the housekeeper and there has since been a new housekeeper employed for this property. Thank you for letting us know and we are glad that you still had a great time and to hear how much you enjoy returning here. We look forward to seeing you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A wonderful, relaxing, superb apartment with views to enjoy all day!

May 2019

I almost don't want to write a review for St Clements - as telling people just how nice it is may mean that someone else books it when I want it again!

However, it's a fabulous holiday property, in the best possible location and with a view (and nice comfortable recliner) to die for!

I can't wait to book it again.

We are so sorry that there were so many problems with the boiler during your stay at St Clements. The team had tried to get this rectified as quickly as possible, but we understand how frustrating and inconvenient this would have been. I can see that Holly has been in touch with you since to apologise for this unfortunate situation, and again we would like to say how sorry we are that this was not the usual relaxing and stress free experience that you are used to at St Clements. Tanya, Customer Services

We were totally satisfied with just about everything at this property.

Oct 2018

The property is excellent, really faultless and a lovely place to come back to after a big day out. By far the best place we’ve ever stayed at.

Sep 2018

Fantastic apartment with stunning views of Mousehole and the coastline. Equipped to the highest standard and the wine, prosecco and cream tea were a lovely touch. The view from the front of the property is absolutely amazing and a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. We also took advantage of the parking permit offered by Aspects Holidays which allowed us to park in the Primary School yard and took all the stress of finding parking within Mousehole - well worth £30. We recommend a stay here and we hope to be back very soon. Great service from Aspects Holidays too.

Aug 2018

A wonderful apartment to spend our holidays.

Jul 2018

Superb location and amazing views. Very comfortable accommodation and a great place to relax.

Jun 2018

Probably one of the best holiday apartments available in Mousehole -and the comfort platform was excellent -no reason for stress ....and the privacy was appreciated ....

Jan 2018

An apartment with one of the best views in Cornwall in such a pretty village. Views over the harbour across Mounts Bay further to the Lizard. Never a dull moment. Boats coming and going in the harbour, seals on St.Clements island, gannets diving into the sea with the Scillonian ferry passingby. If your lucky experience the Penlee lifeboat on exercise perhaps with jointly with the coastguard helicopter.

Jan 2018

Outstanding view of harbour. Having SKY TV was also a huge bonus during our stay over Christmas. A very luxurious, well equipped apartment - it was very hard to leave !

Mousehole is a great village to stay in and St Clements Apartment just puts the star on the tree.

Just don't choose our week

Nov 2017

With out doubt the best positioned apartment in Mousehole.. Stunning interior with top spec furnishings and equipment. We didn't want to leave.

Aug 2017

We had a brilliant holiday. Mousehole is so quaint and pretty. Our apartment exceeded our expectations and the views from the living areas are exceptional. Immaculately kept with the best quality appliances. The fresh flowers and cream tea on arrival, were a lovely touch too. We had an amazing time and we will be back - thanks to everyone at Aspects.

Jun 2017

We had the most wonderful week staying in St Clements. The most beautiful views across the harbour and out to mounts bay. Would most definitely recommend staying here.

May 2017

Despite wanting to keep this a secret location, this is the best accomodation and quality of facilities we've experienced in mousehole across the eight visits made and the views of the harbour and coastline are outstanding

St. Clements Apartment is such a relaxing place to stay.

We can't praise it highly enough as long as you don't want to take our week.

With views to die for, St Clements has a prime location and is without a doubt one of the best holidays we have enjoyed.

Feb 2016

It's brilliant

Jan 2016

We absolutely loved our week at St Clements over Christmas. I can't praise it enough. The view from the kitchen window and main living area was magical - seeing the harbour lights come on each afternoon, watching gannets fishing off the rocks first thing, the waves crashing over the harbour wall - wonderful. The standard of kitchen equipment is extremely high and we were easily able to make cakes and cook the Christmas dinner here, as well as entertain the rest of our family who were staying at the apartment below (Harbours Reach) - because the sofa and armahciars were ample for 7 people, and there was enough kitchen crockery etc. The bed (main bedroom) was really comfortable with luxurious duvet, and the whole apartment was warm, bright and exceptionally clean. It was a very special Christmas, and a lovely place to celebrate one of our party's very special birthday on Chstrmas Eve! However - not a place to stay if you are overw eight or unfit or have any sort of disability, as it involves two flights of stairs - which we were very happy to run up and down and added to the charm!

Dec 2015

We have nothing but the highest praise for the apartment. A thoughtful welcome pack.The property is warm, cosy and spacious. All the rooms have been fitted out to a very high standard. The location is marvellous with wonderful views onto the harbour and beyond. Despite the damp weather (fairly normal for November) we had a lovely, relaxing week in unspoilt Mousehole. Will definitely be looking to visit again.

Nov 2015

Beautiful apartment excellant views in the centre of Mousehole yet hidden away what more could you ask for.

Nov 2015

A perfect holiday property. A beautiful location and a property that helps you to soak up the views and tranquility.

Oct 2015

St Clements is an amazing apartment in an idyllic location. The apartment is so well furnished & equipped with everything you could wish for. I loved cooking in the kitchen looking out at the fantastic view. A real retreat from all the stresses of everyday life! Second visit & won't be the last.
