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.

It is an easy walk into the village but a bit steep on the way back. If the weather is bad there is no need to go out, you can sit in the lounge/dinner and watch the view through the large corner windows. There is parking in the road outside the house, which is the last property in the road at the top of the hill. There are several good cafes and restaurants in the village. An excellent property.

There is a spacious bathroom, spotlessly clean with a large shower and lots of storage areas. Alison's welcome pack of breakfast - luxury cereal, eggs, fresh fruit, coffees and teas, milk, bread and butter was just one of the extras she provided. Everything was tastefully furnished and decorated so that we felt really special. The view over Newlyn harbour and across to St Michael's Mount is stunning and we loved watching boats moving in and out. There are plenty of shops within walking distance and lots to do in the area. Overall, a beautifully clean apartment which earns top marks from us.
