About The Area

Mousehole, Cornwall

Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall, between Penzance and Lands End.

A hundred years ago Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) was a bustling port, crowded with local fishing boats landing pilchards, this has declined over the years but Mousehole has retained much of its old world charm. Its narrow streets are filled with small shops, galleries and restaurants. Local cottages built with local stone huddle together around the inner edge of the harbour. Dylan Thomas described the village as the 'loveliest in England'.

Just offshore from the harbour is St Clements Isle, a small cluster of rocks when an ancient hermit is said to have lived and a few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave which is believed to give rise to the village's strange name.

The surrounding area offers a wealth of things to do for all ages.
