This is my favourite spot in Cornwall as it has a bit of everything at any time of year. The sandy harbour beach is great and quite sheltered - ice-cream, newspapers and refreshments just a stones throw away. Calm for bathing and paddling, kayaking -...More

We visited Mousehole on our tour of Cornwall, thankfully at low tide. That provided us an amazing view of the harbor and a realization of how low (and high) the tides are! Walking around the harbor was both scenic and interesting (people watching). Lots of...More

We loved the harbour, the kids waded through the wet sand of low tide. Thanks to the locals for keeping it so kid friendly.

No, we've only stayed at the Coastguard (our favourite hotel) or The Ship (pub on front). I've just had a look at Seacrest on Cornish Gems & it does look amazing. I'm guessing it must be on the road from Mousehole to... More
