The small, harbour-side village of Mousehole, though a popular tourist destination, remains largely unspoilt. Shops, cafés, pubs and art galleries mingle with traditional fishing cottages down Mousehole's narrow lanes, in a scenic hillside setting.
Holiday cottages in Mousehole provide self catering accommodation options. Accommodation is also provided in many of Penwith's larger towns and villages, including holiday cottages in Penzance (3 miles from Mousehole by road), St Ives (11 miles) and Lands End (10 miles).
There are several car parks provided in the vicinity. Those outside Mousehole are recommended, as the lanes in the village are narrow and can easily become congested. Facilities are provided in the village. Dogs are not permitted in the harbour and there is no lifeguard service.
