Imagine a tangle of fishermen’s cottages and winding alleyways, a maze of slips, a harbour bobbing colourful boats atop its surface and an ice cream parlour serving up the most heavenly flavours on earth... you wouldn’t be mistaken for thinking the arcadian town of Mousehole was like one plucked from a fairy tale.

Mousehole in Cornwall It’s all these things and more that combine to make this west Cornwall inlet a sought-after holiday destination in the world of luxury travel, drawing visitors from far and wide. A recent write-up in Vogue named the seaside resort ’the most charming little town on the English seaside’. As well as its splash in the fashion bible, Mousehole is famous for its ‘stargazey’ pilchard pie, much-adored children’s book The Mousehole Cat and dazzling Christmas lights display, when the harbour is garlanded with ribbons of bulbs and animal-shaped illuminations which twinkle in their harbour reflections. It’s due to events such as this that make the town’s waterfront holiday accommodation popular with vacationers all year round.

Luxury Holidays in Mousehole Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) attracts lovebirds, families and groups of friends from the UK and beyond, who are lured by the town’s culinary sophistication, luxury accommodation and overall postcard-perfect appeal. From swanky hotels to boutique B&Bs and holiday cottages to rival those in the south of France, the variety of options is quite remarkable for a traditional Cornish harbour village. Visitors can stay in an authentic fisherman’s net loft, interior-designed cottage or family-friendly homestay with harbour views to die for – the options are almost endless. Poet Dylan Thomas famously hailed Mousehole ’the loveliest village in England’ whilst on honeymoon there himself.
