Make a holiday cottage in Mousehole your home away from home

Described as the loveliest village in the UK, Mousehole is a popular holiday spot nestled between the cottages of beautiful Land’s End and Penzance. Full of winding cobblestone streets and charming fishing cottages, it’s the perfect destination for a family getaway or a romantic escape. Despite its old-world feel, Mousehole offers all the conveniences of a holiday village with plenty of restaurants, pubs, and shopping facilities located within its narrow streets. It is an excellent choice as a base to discover what makes this part of the country one of the most popular and beautiful areas in England.

HomeAway has a number of holiday cottages in Mousehole available to choose from. They range from two to four bedrooms and can sleep up to eight guests comfortably. All Mousehole holiday accommodation is fully furnished to a high standard, with many offering additional amenities such as close proximity to the sea, access to walking trails, and the ability to bring pets along.

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.

Weather in Mousehole

Mousehole is one of the sunnier spots in the UK, especially in the summer. June through September are typically the warmest months with high temperatures nearly hitting 20°C daily. Things cool down at the beginning of October, but the weather remains pleasantly mild throughout the winter. Rain is more common in winter with prolonged sunshine returning in April.

Travel to Mousehole

Mousehole is located very near to Land’s End in a quiet corner of Cornwall. The easiest way to reach the seaside village is by car. Drivers can take the A30 all the way through Cornwall before exiting onto the B3315, past Penzance. From here, Mousehole is just a few miles away. A lot of visitors choose to fly into Newquay Cornwall Airport and hire a car. Mousehole is about an hour’s drive away from the airport.

Best location and view

5 of 5
a week of mostly sun and some rain, but it never really matters with the ability to relax in the appartment and enjoy the view. Our 10th visit to Mousehole, so we will be back.

Absolutely stunning

5 of 5
Tavis vor truly is beautiful.   This busy world we live in sometimes leaves us with little time to spend quality time with our loved ones and appreciate the beauty around us. Having just spent time there with my own family,  I can say hand on heart this is tuly  THE most perfect place for your stay in Cornwall. Tavis vor is like something out of a story book, set in a stunning location overlooking the sea with  St Michael 's mount in the distance.  The house is huge, yet homely. Every window pictures the sea and even on those wet and windy days you feel euphoria as you watch the waves crashing on seal point and the harbour. Cosy up around the log burner in the lounge as you play your family games together or sneek away down the garden to the concealed seated  hideaway to sit with your glass of wine and take in the view of Mousehole harbour in the evening   with its pretty lights. In the words of my 78 yr old mother as she sat looking out " if heaven's like this, I'd go tomorrow " ( mum still very sprightly though and not about to go may I add )😁 The owners, Rob and esme are such lovely people and very welcoming. They have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay at tavis vor perfect. Thankyou to you both and we cannot wait to return.
