Mousehole is that dinky fishing village with an enduring reputation for its Christmas light festival, proving the point that Cornwall isn’t just a summer holiday destination. By all means book yourself into one of the many Lamorna granite Mousehole holiday cottages before the August rush. But you’ll experience the village at its best once the crowds have left and you can explore nearby Minack Theatre in peace and quiet.
In Cornwall’s deep south, beyond Penzance, discover this picturesque former port that was once buoyant with the hubbub of fishermen and their ancient trawlers. Today, Mousehole family holidays savour the safety of the beach in the sheltered harbour, the lunch offerings from the village deli and the magnetic draw of the ice cream parlour.
Mousehole holiday homes are sure to add to your fixation with the place. It’s hard not to fall in love with the history, the family days out on the doorstep and all that glorious golden sand.
