Mousehole


Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Mousehole

Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land’s End. It has retained much of its old world charm, and its narrow streets are filled with small shops, galleries and restaurants. Lovely little cottages built from local granite huddle together around the harbour, and are a pleasure to see. In fact, Dylan Thomas described the village as the loveliest in England! Dolly Pentreath, reputedly the last person to speak only the Cornish language, lived in Mousehole. Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement’s Isle, a small cluster of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A small, safe beach is located in a sheltered part of the harbour. In December, the Christmas lights are switched on in the village. These are famous throughout Cornwall. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way.
