Swim in a cove that inspired the Newlyn artists. Watch a play in an outdoor theatre with the star strewn sky as a backdrop. Sip local ale in the smugglers pub from Treasure Island. Whether you choose to abandon the car, or use it to explore a little further afield, there’s plenty of do in and around Mousehole.
Within easy walking distance of our properties you’ll find the pretty harbour of Mousehole with shops, restaurants, cafes and not one but two pretty little sandy beaches to play on. Take a trip around the Bay with Cormorant Cruising or walk over the cliffs to artist-beloved Lamorna Cove. Learn the story of the Merry Maidens and visit ancient standing stones on your way home.
Plan your break late December to experience the famous Mousehole Christmas lights.
Head to Porthcurno to visit the Telegraph Museum and marvel at the gorgeous open air Minack Theatre built into the cliffs. Porthcurno beach is gorgeous, but explorers should seek out Pedn Vounder, a sandy summertime secret nestled beneath the cliffs.
Make time in your schedule to visit spiritual St Michael’s Mount and uncover legends of giants and archangels. Travel deep into the ancient Penwith landscape to visit ancient courtyard villages and monuments.
Visit over August Bank Holiday for all the fun of the Newlyn Fish Festival.
