The Garden Studio
Mousehole

£411 - £894 per week
Book

Blue skies and sun beams dance through the skylights and just for a while, time stands still. When night falls, a lonely fishing boat may be seen from the terraced garden amidst the magical garden lights, underneath the beauty of a starry night sky. The heart of The Garden Studio, with its bohemian style and open plan living, beats a free-spirited rhythm throughout. With captivating global influences and an eclectic mix of rustic charm, macramé and considered vintage pieces, this tasteful home is as much a romantic hideaway, as a place to escape, relax and recover from the stresses of daily life. At daybreak, throw open the windows of the summerhouse, make your morning coffee and experience a memorable sunrise over the panoramic sea views, in this peaceful corner of the enchanting village of Mousehole.

A short stroll from The Garden Studio takes you to Mousehole's quaint harbour and beaches. Whether it's having lunch on the beach from Hole Foods Deli or the Rockpool Cafe, or fine dining at 2 Fore Street, you don't have to venture far to enjoy some of Cornwall's finest local produce. A very pleasant walk beside the sea into neighbouring Newlyn takes you to more exquisite eateries or enjoy a coastal walk to the beautiful Lamorna Cove with some breath-taking sea views. The Minack Theatre, the white sands of Porthcurno Beach, surfer's paradise Sennen Cove and St Michael's Mount in Marazion are just a short drive away, making The Garden Studio the perfect choice for exploring this beautiful county.

What a cosy little studio. Perfect with everything we needed. We enjoyed the location. Right in the middle of the village. Alfie our border terrier had the best time. He was worn out after the beautiful walks. The garden is delightful

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.

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.

Coasteering in Mousehole

If you're seeking adrenaline and adventure, check out Coasteering Adventures.

Mousehole is one of Cornwall’s top Coasteering destinations. Nestled in the shelter of Mounts Bay, Mousehole offers multiple coasteering routes for all ages and abilities. Coasteering Adventures are thrilled to be the exclusive provider of coasteering from this location. Book an adventure and you will experience cliff jumping, sea swimming, climbing, bouldering, exploring caves and floating through gullies. With each session tailored to the group, you can choose the level that you are comfortable with.

Dating back to the 13th century Mousehole has a rich history tying it to the sea. 1595 saw all but 1 house (which still stands today) burned to the ground by the Spanish armada. 100 Years later Mousehole became a haven for the ‘Barbary Pirates’ with a number of caves on the route being where their treasure was hidden. During the 1800’s Mousehole settled into a thriving fishing village and you’ll regularly see the small fishing boats from Mousehole pass our groups whilst out on route.

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.

Events

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.

What a cosy little studio. Perfect with everything we needed. We enjoyed the location. Right in the middle of the village. Alfie our border terrier had the best time. He was worn out after the beautiful walks. The garden is delightful

Great location, very tidy and well equipped. Great place to stay for the NY celebrations.

Lovely cottage, warm light and beautifully decorated. Garden and summerhouse real bonus. Would stay again.

Lovely light and airy property with stylish interior. Compact and bijou with some lovely touches. Added benefit of outdoor garden space but very steep and care needs to be taken on climbing the granite steps. Lovely peaceful setting with views over the chimney pots and out to sea. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at this quirky and unusual garden house.

Very frustrated on arrival as we could not find it took us about 1 hour once you know where it is it’s literally about a 2 minutes walk from the harbour, if you go up past 2 fore restaurant it’s the first left then about 10 metre on the right up a narrow walkway up the steps it was very nice place to stay and a great base for exploring other places, car parking can be a bit hit and miss but we found if we came back around 5pm you can find parking £3 24 hour, also bus service runs every 20 mins to Penzance where if you want you can take buses all round, st Ives, Lands end etc .The next town to Mousehole is Newlyn about 1 mile away lots of shops, supermarkets fast food and bars, very enjoyable stay I would stay here again, hope this helps anyone

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you liked The Garden Studio and the area, though sorry that it took you so long to find it. The directions should be detailed enough, but if you use a postcode in a satnav anywhere in Cornwall, you often find that they take you to the wrong place. We will double check our directions though just in case we haven't made them clear enough. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

This property is wonderful...comfortable, quirky, well appointed and private. It has many charming extra spaces and touches that take you by surprise not least the summer house. It provides a wonderful experience and we would happily recommend it.
