Situated south of Penzance on the west coast of Cornwall is Mousehole. Mousehole’s history is that of a bustling fishing port up until about a hundred years ago. Today, Mousehole welcomes tourists to its quaint village streets that invite you to explore what is around the next corner. Your Cornish cottage will be the perfect place to discover Mousehole and its surrounding neighbours from.
If you enjoy eating out then you will want to sample the locally sourced food at 2 Fore Street, who pride themselves on using the freshest Cornish seafood. Or if you prefer to cook at home in your self-catering cottage then why not forage your own ingredients with Wild Walks Southwest, who will guide you to the very best in local wild foods.
For those who have found their sea legs why not hop on board with Cormorant Cruises to explore the coastline of Mousehole from another perspective? If the sea isn’t your thing, then your holiday cottage is the perfect place to get ready for a day at the beach and there are plenty to choose from. Mousehole Beach is sandy and within the harbour walls, or a short drive out can find out Newlyn Tolcarne Beach, Penzance Promenade Beach, Wherrytown Beach or Battery Rocks Beach.
Every Cornwall holiday calls for a spot of gift shopping and Mousehole’s small back streets offer plenty of galleries and shops. Check out Sandpiper Gallery, where you will be sure to find a print to remember your holidays with.
Your Mousehole holiday cottage is also a perfect point to plan a trip to the Scilly Isles from and when you are tired after a hard days fun, your self-catering cottage is the best place to come back to, to rest weary bones and relax.
If you are planning a winter getaway, then it is well worth considering visiting in December when the village puts on a wonderful display of Christmas lights. The harbour has floating light displays and opening night usually sees the local choir singing festive songs, a lantern parade and much more besides.
