Prussia Cove Holidays

Surrounded by farmland, Prussia Cove is a particularly attractive and sheltered section of the South West Coast Path, situated to the East of Mounts Bay, and providing an ideal location to relax in peace. However, stay at Prussia Cove and you won't be far from the hustle and bustle of the harbour towns of Marazion and Penzance, and you'll be just a stone's throw from the stunning St Michael's Mount.  With the little coastal villages of Perranuthnoe and Praa Sands either side, there's plenty to explore. For other beaches in the area, check out our blog post on sandy beaches in West Cornwall.

Although the beach is a half mile walk from the car park, you'll be rewarded when you get there, with a beautifully secluded beach and an excellent snorkelling location.

The beach is also dog-friendly all year round, making it great for holidays with your furry companion. 

Foragers can take advantage of the rare, but thriving wild cabbage in Prussia Cove! For those looking to learn more about this ever-popular past time, check out our blog on Wild Food Walks in Cornwall. 

History of Prussia Cove

Prussia Cove is well known for its smuggling trade in the 18th century.  This secluded area was home to John Carter; one of the UK's most notiorious and successful smugglers. The 'King of Prussia' as he was known, was famous for breaking into revenue premises to steal the goods that had been seized from him. 

Prussia Cove was also a popular fishing area, with evidence of old fishing huts built into the cliff face. Fishing is Prussia Cove continues to this day, albeit on a much smaller scale.

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.
