The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. They are tuned off for one hour on the 19th December on the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy. Mousehole is famed for the lantern parade on Tom Bawcock's Eve held on 23rd December. The children’s book, The Mousehole Cat by Antonia Barber, and the television production of the same name, were inspired by the tale of Tom Bawcock and Mousehole’s own traditional dish of Stargazy Pie.
Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. Boat tours of the coast from the harbour are available. A few hundred yards along from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village's unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, or past Lamorna to the Tater Du lighthouse. Inland is the lovely village of Paul and beyond it lie several stone circles and megalithic sites. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.

Mousehole in September
Cornerstone cottage is located right on the harbour right next to an excellent restaurant and local pub. We were able to park on the nearby harbour car park everyday for a very reasonable AGBP3 per 24 hour fee. The cottage was lovely and clean and fully equipped with everything that you would need for your holiday, including chairs for the beach and a picnic basket. The beds were very comfortable and both front bedrooms had lovely views over the harbour. Communication with CornwallA?s Cottages was excellent as was our contact with both the housekeeper Michelle and the owner Jon.
