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.

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.

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.

Travel to Mousehole

Superb balcony, wonderful view, great location and careful attention from the owners.

4 of 5
The balcony and its superb view make 'Island Watch' a great holiday venue. The living area on the lower floor is small but just adequate for two. Very squeaky floor boards through the kitchen /lounge area caused us concern for the accommodation below, but the folk staying there were not bothered. The bath room and toilet is on an even smaller scale, but designed well and was fine. We were comfortable and we enjoyed being there. The bedroom on the higher level was more difficult. The information about the venue is clear that the bedroom is an attic/loft room and that was fine, but we found that the only place to stand upright was at the top of the stairs. I am not disabled but at 73 I found that to mount a step of between 18 and 20 inches to reach the drawers and hanging space for clothes was too difficult ..... and not even a rail or handle to grip for assistance! I think it needs a little re- planning. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and the location is excellent.
