Things to do

-Beaches: There is a small sandy beach at Mousehole that is dog friendly in the colder months. Several more notable beaches such as Marazion Beach and Long Rock Beach are less than five miles from Mousehole holiday cottages and are both family and dog friendly throughout the year. They also feature long stretches of sand and calm waves that are suitable for swimming in the summer months.

-Family attractions: Take kids to the tidal island of St. Michael’s Mount, which is accessible from Marazion. There’s lots to discover and explore on this little island, including a castle and subtropical gardens. On a sunny day children can enjoy playing in a tidal lido called Jubilee Pool, located a few miles from Mousehole beside the rentals of popular resort town Penzance. Paradise Park in Hayle is another great place to take the family. The park is home to over 650 species of animals in addition to a play centre.

-Culture: One of the highlights of staying in a Mousehole holiday cottage over the festive season is the ability to view the village’s famous Christmas lights display. Each year in mid-December, Mousehole decorates its harbour with thousands of sparkling Christmas lights in what has become a popular annual tradition. Helicopter tours of the lighting display are available from nearby Penzance and the event lasts until just past New Year’s.

-Food and drink: Cornwall is home to its own distinct cuisine and there’s no better place to sample traditional Cornish food than in Mousehole. Cornish pasties are always a favourite with tourists, but Mousehole’s seaside locale means that there’s plenty of great seafood to be had at local eateries as well. The stargazy pie, which many believe originated in Mousehole, is a local speciality.

We did really appreciate the friendly and calm atmosphere, the harbour, the village itself and the surroundings, and of course Cobblers's cottage - very comfortable, kitchen very well equipped for self catering, washing machine etc and also beautiful, nice and pretty in all ways, and located only two miutes from the sea! We had a great holiday: relaxing, fun and interesting. Many thanks to excellent hostess Melanie! Anna T Wolgers + family Stockholm, Sweden

It was the absolute perfect place to be for enjoying the Sea Salts festival too. Everything's so close it's like its own little world. Which it is I suppose! The cottage works so well as a sociable space and felt like the sort of place I could happily hang out for days and days, chatting, cooking, eating and occasionally wondering out to interact with the village, the beach and the local deli. Favourite thing: the carpet. Sooooo comfy. Thank you!

Sowohl die Lage als auch das Haus selber dürften kaum zu toppen sein. Darum kommen wir auch schon seit Jahren nach Mousehole, um bei Esme und Rob Urlaub zu machen. Man spürt, dass es sich nicht nur um eine zweckmäßige Ferienunterkunft, sondern um ein echtes Zuhause handelt. Das Haus strahlt so viel Wärme aus, ist durchflutet von Licht und der wunderbaren Meeresbrise. Egal ob als Gruppe, als Familie mit Kindern oder als Paar - man fühlt sich einfach rundum wohl. Das Haus ist so liebevoll eingerichtet, bietet viele Rückzugsmöglichkeiten und sehr viel Platz. Kein Schlangestehen vor dem Bad, kein beengtes Sitzen. Stattdessen ist vom Kamin über Kücheneinrichtung, Wäschetrocker und Waschmaschine bis hin zu Spielzeug für die Kinder und einem großen Garten mit direktem Zugang zum Meer wirklich alles vorhanden. Esme und Rob sind wundervolle Gastgeber und wirklich bei jedem Problem, jedem Wunsch, jeder Nachfrage zur Stelle. Zusammen mit ihren beiden tollen Kindern sind sie eine großartige Familie und man merkt, dass dieses Haus für sie eingerichtet wurde. Es ist etwas ganz Besonderes, dass sie es teilen. Die Lage von Seal Point könnte nicht besser sein. Auf der Insel, die von fast allen Zimmern zu sehen ist, leben Robben, die sich gut beobachten lassen und die morgens an den Rockpool am Fuße des Hauses kommen. Sogar Delfine haben wir schon gesehen. Mousehole ist ein unglaublich schöner, ruhiger Ort und ein toller Ausgangspunkt für viele Ausflüge. Im Restaurant nebenan, aber auch in vielen anderen Lokalen vor Ort findet man sehr gute Küche oder aber einfach einen schönen Platz, um einen lokalen Cider zu trinken. Wem Seal Point zu groß ist, hat übrigens mit der angeschlossenen kleineren Wohnung, "Island Watch", eine tolle Alternative. Wir kennen beide Unterkünfte und kommen immer wieder. Obwohl wir viel unterwegs sind und reichlich Unterkünfte aller Art kennen, ist uns dieser Ort zum zweiten Zuhause geworden. Wir sind Esme und Rob sehr dankbar für ihre tolle Betreuung und freuen uns schon auf den nächsten Besuch an dem für uns schönsten Ort der Welt.
