Mousehole Harbour

Reviewed By LAD63 - somerset, uk

Whilst staying nearby for the Christmas holidays, we visited this pretty harbour. Not changed at all since our last visit many years ago. The main purpose of our visit was to see the Christmas lights in the harbour. As we arrived mid afternoon took a stroll through the lanes and visiting the shops and galleries
Popped in The Ship for a pint of ale before walking the harbour to see the lights- beautiful and well worth the wait for darkness
Very very busy and be prepared to wait for parking but will be worth it
Lights are turned on at 5pm

Ship Inn Mousehole

Reviewed By BECKS777 - ENGLAND

Nice location on the corner of Mousehole harbour.
Had an evening meal here, but the food was nothing special. In fact I'd say it was overpriced for the quality of food served. It didn't taste fresh, more like food that is bought in and then "cooked". Shame
Dogs are welcome in the pub in case you want to take yours

Cormorant Cruising

Reviewed By RMMarriner - Sydney, Australia

I've been to Mousehole many times but had never been out on the water there so this little cruise was a treat. You're not in Venice, so don't expect the Taj Mahal as Basil Fawlty would say, but as a friendly little excursion around the Cornish coast, this was a fun way of spending 90 minutes on the water. Seeing the seals near St Clement's Island was a highlight. You won't meet a nicer or more accommodating bloke than the skipper - Mike.

The Mowzer Gallery

Reviewed By Teedee43 - Plymouth, United Kingdom

We just popped in to look at the pictures and ended up buying two sculptures! The owner and his wife were very friendly and chatted away even before we decided to buy anything.

Fitzroy Barometer

Reviewed By Jan W - Chesterfield, United Kingdom

Wandering along the harbour past The Ships INN I stopped in my tracks when I saw this beautiful barometer encased in the wall. This barometer was originally 'loaned' to Mousehole in 1854 by Admiral Fitzroy, founder of the Meteorological Office.
Its purpose was to provide data to the Met Office to improve storm warnings but also to give the fishermen of the village warning of pending bad weather in an attempt to reduce the loss of life so common at the time
In 2009, the Meteorological Office gifted the barometer to Mousehole Harbour Authority.
It only takes a moment to seek this out for a look when visiting Mousehole and well worth seeing in my view

Gallery in the fishing village of Mousehole showing work by mostly local artists. Representational and naive.

Reviewed By pasowine - Paso Robles, California

What a nice little gallery! Lots of interesting cards, artwork, and other items to browse through - and actually seemed quite affordable. Enjoyed it on our walk around Mousehole.
