Pronounced 'Mowzel', Mousehole is a fishing port with history dating as far back as 1266. Set on the Cornish coast between Penzance and Land’s End, this arresting fishing hamlet has fully retained its original splendour. Yellow-lichened houses line the inner edge of the harbour that houses lovely holiday cottages and cosy lettings.
