Totally unspoilt by time Mousehole has something for everyone. Its granite fishermen’s cottages nestle amongst narrow winding streets. The fishing boats bobbing in the water surrounded by high protective harbour walls, the cry of seagulls, crystal clear blue water in the summer and dramatic emerald waves in the winter.

Explore the village and wander the winding streets, sample the local food from several restaurants, tea-shops and the pub; visit the many galleries and shops. Paddle in the rock pools or harbour beaches. While away the hours by sitting and watching the world go by.
