Book

The Beach House is a true gem in the heart of Mousehole, with interiors offering a stylish palette of cool, coastal tones with warm, inviting fabrics and furnishings. Start your day with a family breakfast of hot buttered toast and fresh coffee, before heading out to explore West Cornwall. Later, wander down the harbour to settle onto the sand for a sunset supper. On chilly winter evenings the electric woodburner encourages snug winter hibernation with a glass of wine and good conversation for company. Offering somewhere cosy for everyone to lay, The Beach House sleeps up to six guests, with a king sized bedroom, a twin room and a bunk room, which is great for little ones.

Mousehole is a haven for many who covet the picturesque coastal location and olde-worlde charm combined with its ever popular local pub The Ship Inn. Sit and watch the fishing boats pass by and dip your toes in the water. For the more adventurous, pack up a picnic of Cornish goodies and explore the coastal path to Lamorna - the scenery along the way is quite breath-taking. This traditional Cornish cottage is a haven you'll relish returning to after a day's adventure and a secret you'll want to keep all to yourself.

Having stayed in Mousehole before, we already knew the village and the location of the Beach House was going to be perfect for us. What we didn't realise was how fabulous a property we had rented!

The property was beuatifully clean and the decoration lovely. Care had been taken to ensure all a holiday makers wants were catered for with plenty of crockery, cutlery, utensils, cooking ware, games, books, beach toys, camping chairs, blankets, comfortable seating and even toiletries supplied.

The 2 recpetion areas meant we (2 adults, 3 children) had more than enough room to relax and enjoy our holiday. The outdoor space is small but a really useful area to hang out wetsuits etc. The bedrooms were ligh and airy with comfortable beds. The bathroom had a decent shower and a large bath. Finally the kitchen was well appointed and equipped... it even had a wine cooler!

Overall this property was excellent value for money for a holiday home in Mousehole. We would definitely return to stay at the Beach House. Thank you!

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 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.

Visit at Christmas and experience the magical Mousehole Lights display!

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.

Places to visit near Mousehole

Venture near or far, with NewlynPorthcurno 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

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.

A lovely house to explore beautiful Mousehole from.

Neat and comfy little cottage in beautiful mousehole.

We stayed at the beach house for 5 nights, wish we could of stayed longer, everything was great ,the log burner is my favourite, after being out most days. It was perfect to get cosy . The location is perfect the parking was ok to. We would definitely go back thank you cockerill family ????

The Beach House offers quiet seclusion, yet it’s only a two minute walk to the bustling harbour. It was the perfect retreat for the two of us, although the other two family bedrooms looked equally as inviting as ours, so I’m sure children would also adore staying here. Spotlessly clean and welcoming, with every convenience thought of. The WiFi was a real bonus as we didn’t have a phone signal here. Very comfy bed and fluffy white towels, always makes a difference. The Bramley toiletries in the bathroom were a nice surprise, made in Somerset and divine! Local parking is an issue to be aware of in advance, although we had no problem in mid September parking in the harbour car park for £3 for 24hrs. A small number of local eateries in Mousehole but something for everyone, either eat in or take away. The icecream shop is a must and we found a double scoop every day mandatory! If you want bigger shops (we didn’t) you’ll be spoilt for choice in Penzance. Highly recommend the Cormorant boat trip from Mousehole - skipper Neil (Mousehole born and bred, 30 years working on the lifeboat and elsewhere) was an excellent guide. We also took the 3 hour wildlife trip with Mermaid Pleasure Cruises and were lucky enough to see porpoises, dolphins, seals and seabirds close up - not to mention stunning scenery. All in all, don’t hesitate - just book!

This little cottage is lovely you’ll have everything you need here including books and games for children. Mousehole is such a nice place. Everything is within walking distance from the cottage. Would recommend to anyone.
