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.

With 3 children aged 13, 9 and 6 it can be a busy household (!), but we all felt we had a fantastic amount of scope and space to relax to ourselves as well as areas to congregate for a family film evening or seal spotting from the breakfast table :-) We could walk to the harbour within a few minutes to enjoy the dinghy, go crab and mackerel fishing or enjoy a stroll for dinner in the evening. The Mousehole Male Voice Choir was fantastic and the impromptu performance outside the Ship Inn was a special treat. The 2 allocated parking spaces were a real pro for unloading cars after a day out and for loading up at the end of the stay. This really comes into its own when you are a large party who don't travel light! The garden was a lovely space for the children to let off some steam and the view was second to none. The first coffee of the day was often consumed in the garden looking at the boats sailing by ... What I loved too was the fantastic laundry room - I might even be placing an order for the same washing machine as I loved it so much! Rob and Esme were on hand if we had any queries which was reassuring and if we needed some advice on activities. I would strongly suggest booking your evening meal well in advance as we were caught out on one occasion leaving it too late as there are only a few places to eat out in the evening. Fantastic food and staff @ The Old Coastguard and 2 Fore St. The Ship's food quality was much better if you catch them on a quieter lunch time otherwise it was only satisfactory - fresh fish goujons were a real hit! .. Saying that though, you have all the necessary space and equipment to cater for yourselves in the lovely kitchen and the dining area was one of my favourite spots given the view .... All the children had their own spaces to 'chillax' after a busy day which I think we all appreciated. Our trip to the Minack was fabulous and we would also recommend the Telegraph Museum @ Porthcurno only a short drive away. Lovely welcoming staff and an informative place with interactive exhibitions to keep everyone engaged. In summary a little pricier than we normally pay for accommodation for 5 of us, but we felt it was well worth it and found it really hard to leave. We had a week of quality family time in a picturesque, relaxing, unspoilt corner of Cornwall which we will treasure.

The location of the cupboards meant a narrow kitchen became even narrower with a dead end so sometimes there was grid lock - too many people and open cupboard doors etc! A problem for my very tall family was the end of the stair post poking through the ceiling (part of the kitchen is under the stairs if you follow me) and they brained themselves on it regularly - perhaps it could be cut off?! There is an art to getting in & out of the driveway if you have a big car - it is extremely narrow and despite our best efforts we still managed to trash one of the door mirrors which is an expensive mistake to make. Anyway, this is not meant to be an exhaustive list of complaints as we had a really fabulous, relaxing time here and it's in a great location for exploring this gorgeous part of Cornwall.

We had everything we required for a lovely relaxing holiday in clean comfortable surroundings. The views from our windows, particularly over Newlyn harbour and Mount Bay to St Michael's Mount were fantastic and seem to make our early evening G & Ts taste even better!
