Book

A comfortable, whitewashed granite cottage on the water's edge with glorious views of St Michael's Mount, Mount's Bay and the Lizard Peninsula. This beautifully furnished home set over three floors is an ideal location for guests to unwind in an extremely relaxed environment. Access is along a short path, located on the edge of Mousehole.

St Clements Cottage has a granite fireplace with a wood burning stove for cooler evenings which adds to the charm of this lovely home. St Clements cottage is east facing, just right for guests to wake up to the early morning sunshine streaming through the bedroom windows, accompanied by the sound of the sea lapping on the rocks below. The small patio garden is set on the edge of the sea wall, just perfect for those close up views of passing fishing boats and the occasional seal. Although on the outer edge of the village, it's only a short stroll to the village centre with its harbour beach and selection of restaurants, shops, galleries, and local pub. Mousehole is a great location to unwind or go out and about with many villages, beaches and coves nearby. The South West Coast Path is only 25 metres from the cottage.

September 2018

We had the most wonderful relaxing holiday at St Clements Cottage. The views from the garden were absolutely stunning as was waking up to the sound of the sea everyday. Perfect weather thankfully so we could make the most of the spectacular garden and sea views. With the beach only metres away and easily accessibly it was the perfect beach retreat.

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.
