Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End, that has retained much of its old world charm. The narrow streets are filled with galleries, small shops and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, cluster together around the inner edge of the harbour, these are protected from the force of the sea by two robust breakwaters. Car parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village. The tiny village was overcome by the loss of the Penlee lifeboat, the Solomon Brown, just before Christmas 1981. Most of the crew was from Mousehole. On the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy, the Christmas Lights are turned off for one hour as a mark of respect for the crew who died whilst trying to rescue those on the Union Star off Lamorna.

The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. You can even take a helicopter ride from Penzance to view the lights from the sky! Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village's unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.

Pretty cottage in a lovely place

  • 3 of 5

A cottage with everything we needed, the only disappointment were the carpets upstairs. Apart from being badly stained (which is not the fault of the cleaner obviously) they certainly looked like they hadn't been vacuumed before our stay.

In my view, if a relatively easy job such as vacuuming hasn't been done then what else has been skipped? Bedding, toilets etc?

Excellent Location. Interior Tired

  • 3 of 5

The cottage stands in an excellent location. Beautiful views of the harbour. Bus stop to local places of interest immediately outside the front door of the cottage. Mousehole is a beautiful corwall village.The property needs some attention. Downstairs is fine. A period cottage feel. Upstairs the bath front was hanging off. The back bedroom had brown stains? On the bottom of the door. Not please tell. The carpets were filthy and need replacing. They also have a smell of dogs? Moved the sofa for a better view of the TV, and found dust, crumbs, and a lip balm stick. The cottage definitely needs some improvements caring out.

Location I couldn't fault. Property not the best.
