Excellent accommodation within the property with a lovely outside space for dining and relaxing. The location couldn’t have better with just a few minutes walk to the harbour, local shops and restaurants. The coast path is right on the doorstep where you can take in the wonderful coastal scenery and delightful coves. A pleasant walk away is the lovely town of Newlyn selling superb seafood and a short drive is St Just providing all the fresh local produce to prepare your own meals. A glass of wine sat on seats on the old quay overlooking the harbour is a lovely way to end the day! We have booked the Net Loft again for next September we loved it so much.

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.

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.

Easy to book and arrival guide excellent. The accommodation was well equipped for two of us for the week, very easy access to the harbour, pubs and restaurants and bus service to Newlyn and Penzance. Great base for a holiday in the area.

Just spent a wonderful week at The Net Loft, Mousehole. A little gem of a place. Superb location, minute from the harbour. The outside space is wonderful from morning until evening. Every comfort was prvoided, loved the decor, and the super comfy bed.

If your looking for a quite couples retreat, Virgin Place Net Loft is the place to go. It's tucked away behind another cottage, but still has plenty of light, and double doors lead to a beautiful raised decking area that catches the sun most of the day, and shelters you from the wind on windy days. Although it's tucked away it's still only a 2 minute walk to Mousehole Harbour. Most of the other shops/tearooms and gallery's are situated around little lanes of Mousehole and are still only a couple of mins from the Net Loft. Overall I would throughly recommend Virgin Place Net Loft, Mousehole and of course Aspect Holidays.

Cosy and quaint cottage in beautiful Mousehole. Only 2 mins walk to pub , shop and restaurants. Perfect for a relaxing break at anytime of the year

Superb bijoux cottage. Tastefully decorated and furnished, making the very best use of space. Lots of good quality equipment provided for cooking at home, but cottage is in a great location to easily access the local Mousehole cafés and two pubs. We loved the attractive, decked garden with chairs and interesting planting. The best bathroom/shower we've ever had in a holiday house; everything worked perfectly! Hope to return.

This is our fifth stay in this cottage and our umpteenth stay in Mousehole. Both are very special and didn’t disappoint this time. We will definitely return next year both to Mousehole and the Netloft (if there are any vacancies!).

Had a very nice relaxing holiday in the net loft , I went to Mousehole wanting to relax and got exactly what I wanted , the net loft was a beautiful cosy place in a fantastic location, I do plan on going back.

This was my second stay at the Net Loft this year. Once again the property was immaculate. The kitchen is equipped with everything anyone would need. The cottage is so quiet, cosy, warm and comfortable. The harbour is just a few steps away, there you can enjoy the peace and beauty that Mousehole offers, with an amazing bus service if you don’t have a car. I plan to return next year, can’t wait!

This is a lovely property for two. It had excellent amenities and was spotlessly clean. The location was also perfect being a very short walk to the delightful harbour. The decking area is a suntrap and we especially enjoyed breakfast and lunch outside.

Very cosy and delightful place, lovely decoration. We liked the balcony very much, with the palm-tree and the beautiful flowers. We enjoyed the short walk to the harbour. Thank you! Ruth and Anne

Virgin Place net Loft is everything it says about it in the brochure plus some. It is so quiet and peaceful yet so close to the centre. The decking at the rear is a real sun trap. Mousehole is a delightful village and this is an ideal place to stay. Cant recommend highly enough.

As a solo traveller the Net Loft was so cosy and comfortable. Beautifully furnished and well equipped in every way. Just a short stroll to the harbour to enjoy the early morning sunrise. Perfect peace and quiet. I could not have asked for more. Can't wait to return!

Mrs Marsh

Lovely cottage with decking area. Spacious, and the kitchen has everything you could possibly require for a cooking on an evening.

Great location, sea side decor was lovely and the home itself was perfect for my son and I.

Loved it, couldn't have hoped for more - genuinely disappointed about having to leave!

It’s a very cozy, beautiful decorated accommodation ,with the great advantage of a private sunny decking area ..( sunny from about 8am - 6pm) a stones throw away from the harbour

My partner and I had a wonderful holiday at the Net Loft; it was so easy and stress-free, and the loft itself was brilliant, very well located and well equipped, especially the kitchen. We'd love to come back and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thanks very much!

Beautiful quaint well-equipped cottage for couples. Excellent location, only a stone's throw from all Mousehole has to offer!

Perfect place to stay for a relaxing break with lovely and very tasteful, well equipped accommodation.

We would really recommend the Netloft for a totally relaxing holiday. It was so cosy and well equipped, and we felt so lucky with the location, literally a minutes walk to the beautiful harbour at Mousehole. We would definitely consider staying again.
