Artist painting in Moushole harbour

Described by Dylan Thomas as ‘the loveliest village in England’, Mousehole is certainly one of the pearls of Cornwall. The tiny cottages and narrow lanes all banked around a picturesque little harbor have drawn tourists here for many years.

A small and very safe beach is located within in a sheltered part of the harbor and is popular with families, particularly those with small children. Mousehole is even more popular at Christmas time when the entire village is illuminated and the famous “Tom Bawcock’s Eve” is celebrated with songs, processions and a massive Stargazy Pie! Car parking in the village is extremely limited with very narrow roads. Visitors to Mousehole are advised to park on the outskirts of the village and to walk in.
