This is a comfortable property for 2 people. The kitchen area although small , had everything you need. There were bin liners and washing up liquid provided. The complimentary Gin and tonics a very unexpected nice touch. Yea , ground coffee and sugar also provided along with a pint of milk and some biscuits. In particular we liked the comfortable bed .

The Old Gallery is a really lovely, easy to maintain little property - slap, bang in the middle of the village. The decor is gorgeous, obviously all quite new and fresh. The owners have made the very best use of the available space and though small, everything provided, such as kitchen equipment etc, was perfect for our needs. We didn't miss having an outside space as the harbour is literally a few steps away and this makes just the most perfect "front garden" imagineable! Thank you Aspects for yet another wonderful holiday!

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.

Perfect bolthole for two people. Minutes from the harbour front, modern decor, beautiful bedroom and well equipped kitchen. Parked in the harbour car park, never had a problem with a space. £3.00 for 24 hours. Would be happy to recommend this little cottage if you are under six foot in height downstairs ceiling and beams are very low !

A cosy little stow away cottage...lovely inspiring decor. And a great location in the centre of the village...very relaxing and soothing.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful fishing village. Fantastic location and impeccably refurbished. A very cosy winter stay.

Charming little cottage, perfect bolt hole for a short break, even in winter. Bedroom is decorated beautifully with a lovely comfy bed.
