View Room Information
It’s easy to see why Dylan Thomas waxed lyrical about the village of Mousehole describing it as one of the loveliest in England; almost all of its narrow, winding streets have a sea view of some kind or another and many are peppered with small shops and restaurants as well as galleries to peruse. Down at the seaside, the picturesque fishing harbour with its row of traditional granite cottages, makes a lovely vantage point from which to watch the waves break over the harbour wall, and a scenic walk west along the Coastal Path leads to Lamorna Cove with views of the Tater Du Lighthouse on display along the way.

Perched on a hill above the harbour, Mousehole View offers up to four guests a quiet retreat to escape to within this lovely coastal village. Along with a spacious master bedroom and a second double, there are two fabulous outside spaces to enjoy. The sunny top balcony which can be accessed from the kitchen / diner is ideal for summery soirees, while a spacious lower terrace creates a private space for guests to soak up the sunshine, and can be accessed from the main bedroom. The upside down layout of the house means that the living spaces enjoy lovely sea views including those from the living room as well as from the balcony, where an outdoor sofa makes the perfect place to savour your morning coffee. Just a short drive from Newlyn, and just a little further on to Penzance and then Marazion; Mousehole is beautifully placed on the coast to provide visitors with ample to see and do in the area. And after days spent exploring all that this beautiful part of Cornwall has to offer; what could be better than putting your feet up with a glass of wine and watching the sun set over the ocean?

Welcome to Mousehole

Before you book one of our Mousehole holiday cottages, you need to know one thing. The name of this beautiful little resort is pronounced ‘mowzul’. Now that’s cleared up, let’s begin. Arriving in this sleepy fishing village is a little bit like stepping into a fairytale. Found just three miles from Penzance, Mousehole is one of those destinations where time seems to stand still. Boats bob in the harbour, waves lap the beach and cafes serve the catch of the day. If you want to experience the Cornwall of days gone by, this is the perfect place to do it.
