Mousehole, Cornwall

The fishing village of Mousehole is nestled between Newlyn and Lamorna on the western coast of Cornwall. A quiant cottage with white-washed walls will provide a cosy night in after a day spent exploring the cobbled streets. Jessie’s Dairy is an essential afternoon pit-stop for those craving a proper Cornish pasty and they’re undoubtedly best enjoyed by the harbour.
