Discover Mousehole

Popular for retaining its original character, charm and beauty, Mousehole is a tiny fishing village in West Cornwall, three miles west of Penzance. Its picturesque harbour is surrounded by narrow streets and yellow lichened houses, which huddle together creating a stunning location. Along the harbour road you’ll find galleries, gift shops and restaurants and in the harbour itself is a safe sandy beach at low tide popular with families.
