Local information

  • Mousehole is one Cornwall's most loved harbours. Timeless and evocative of a bygone era, small streets and alleyways wind around the sandy harbour. Cliff paths lead in both directions along spectacular coastline to secret coves. Perhaps more than any other part of the county, West Cornwall embodies these qualities, blessed with stunning white powdered shell beaches and crystal clear blue water for some of the best water sports and diving in the UK.
  • Once referred to as “The loveliest village in England” by Dylan Thomas, Mousehole's pretty stone cottages, fine restaurants, the famous Ship Inn, the Old Coastguard Hotel, post office, grocery store and art galleries are clustered around the small medieval harbour. Nearby Newlyn, famous as one of the UK's most important fishing harbours, now has its own independent cinema, delicatessen, quality restaurants, coffee shops and boutique shops.
  • Whilst West Cornwall is renowned for its awe-inspiring scenery, coastline, arts scene and legendary surfing, the area is fast developing as a culinary and sporting Mecca. There are a host of highly acclaimed restaurants in Penzance, St. Ives, Mousehole and Sennen. Meanwhile competitive dinghy sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing are synonymous with
