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.

We had a brilliant week, especially as the weather was amazing. Vine Cottage was a good base in a great location. Not quite right for a family of 5 adults though and a bit tired in places.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time exploring Mousehole and the beautiful surrounding areas, and thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. As with a lot of traditional fisherman's cottages, the layouts can be quite a bit quirkier and smaller than what we are used to with more modern buildings, but full of character and charm. We always try to show this as clearly as possible within our photos, and hope that we have managed that in this case. The living area has two 2-seater sofas and a window seat, and the kitchen has the table and chairs pictured, plus a couple of seats at the breakfast bar. The layout may not suit every party, but we are glad that it worked perfectly for your family. Thank you for informing us about the linen; we are sorry if any of this had looked a little tired. The housekeeper was notified of this and was checking through it all so that any new sets could be arranged with the owners, if required. For anyone that may be interested in this property and would like any further details on the property and its suitability; please do not hesitate to get in contact with us so that we can answer any questions you may have. Tanya, Customer Services

The lovely cottage is very close to the habour wall (only 10 meters), so you can sit there in the dawn drinking your beer :-)

Aug 2019

The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We parked in the harbour which was less than a minutes walk from the back door and only £3 for 24 hours. Very convenient for all Mousehole amenities and the bus into Penzance was regular if you don’t want to take the car. All rooms were well decorated and comfortable and we loved the shower in the en-suite. Kitchen had all amenities you could require for your stay and little courtyard was a sun trap for enjoying a glass of wine in the afternoon/early evening. We would go back to Mousehole and if we did we would stay in vine cottage again. It’s conveniently located for some beautiful beaches and towns. Loved the scones on arrival too

Jul 2019

A lovely well kept house that really feels like a home. In a great location for harbour/parking and beach. Much better location than appears on the website! There was a small problem (that would not have affected our enjoyment of our stay) but Aspects staff were so helpful in fixing this and ensuring we had a great holiday. Thanks!

Jul 2019

Great location for a lovely holiday in Mousehole. Aspects were fabulous in sorting out any issues that arose.
