Hotels in Mousehole
The picturesque fishing village of Mousehole, pronounced ‘Mowzel', lies on the Penwith Peninsula, to the West of Cornwall in South West England. This is a place that has retained its ancient charm and traditional ways, where quaint pubs and cafés in and around this beautiful hamlet offer delicious local cuisine. Narrow alleyways run between quaint stone built cottages that huddled together around the working harbour. Fishing boats and pleasure craft bob merrily on the water, sheltered from the sea by two substantial breakwaters. There are a number of Mousehole hotels within the surrounding area, offering you easy access to the peace and tranquillity of this idyllic village setting.
Things to do:
Due to the beautiful scenery and exceptional light, Cornwall has long been a draw for artists. It's no surprise therefore to find an abundant supply of local art exhibitions. The Newlyn Art Gallery is one such place. It showcases a number of regional as well as national artists and is well worth a closer inspection. Penzance Penlee House Gallery and Museum is another art gallery that displays the work of esteemed local artists.
For a touch of the theatrical, check out what's on offer at the Minack Theatre, in Porthcumo, near Land's End. This open-air theatre perched high on the cliffs above Porthcumo Beach looks across the sea and stages productions throughout the summer months.
Visit the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site, which incorporates a number of famous landmarks. Learn about the extraordinary industrial heritage of Cornwall, when tin and copper mining in the 18th and early 19th century underwent a rapid expansion. Visit Botallack Mine, the Crowns Engine Houses, Levant Mine and Beam Engine or Geevor Tin Mine for a real insight into life during the Industrial Revolution.
For a popular day out, visit Flambards, near Helson, an adventure play park with roller coasters and adrenaline fuelled rides as well as more sedate options for younger children. There's also a Victorian village, which has been reconstructed to faithfully represent the period.
For walkers and cyclists, there are many stunning routes to take, be it a stroll in the lush countryside, or along the South West Coastal Path.
This is West Cornwall, with a whole array of beaches, offering a variety of amenities. Some are small, beautiful and undeveloped. Others are vast stretches of coastline, often life guarded, with refreshments, toilets and car parking. The harbour itself in Mousehole offers a shallow, safe place for children to paddle. Further afield, it's worth considering Penanze, with its sandy beach, lifeguard station and outdoor sea water swimming pool. Another major stretch of coastline with all the facilities is Marazion. This is a popular destination for families, with a causeway that offers access to St Michael's Mount at low tide. For a south-facing shingle cove, with stunning scenery and no amenities, try Prussia Cove.
