Mousehole Luxury Holiday Cottages for all the family
Sandwiched between Penzance and Lamorna, and dubbed the loveliest village in Cornwall by Dylan Thomas, Mousehole is one of the most stunning – and civilised – destinations from which to explore Cornwall’s wild western toe. Steeped in maritime heritage and once the territory of smugglers and salty seadogs, these days its good looks and boat-loads of charm attract the well-heeled holidaymakers. Despite the diminutive proportions of this harbour-side hamlet and its huddle of fishermen’s cottages, it is not pronounced ‘mouse-hole’ – it’s ‘mow-zul’. Keep your eyes peeled for the seals basking just offshore on St Clement’s Rock, and don’t miss the dazzling Christmas lights display.
