Mousehole (pronounced 'Mouzle') the name is thought to derive from a smuggler's cave south of the village. The village was once a major pilchard landing port and retains considerable character, with colour washed houses surrounding the harbour, draped with nets.

Long time ago this was the place where hounders of fisherman used to sat sail before sunrise and fish sardines. Nowadays there are few fisherman left as well as the fishes, but the beauty of its history and traditions remain and you can see them when you walk around and when you sit in a pub and you a order a nice fish pie.
There are a lot of things to see, like the harbor and the countless artist shops where you can find curious and original things.
Mousehole is between Penzance and Land's End, it's little bit expensive find a place to rent even for a weekend, but I swear it's worth it.

A unique and charming fishing village, the settlement Mousehole is tucked into the southern Cornish coast, situated in a tiny space between the hilly landscape and the sea. A major feature of the seafront is the harbour, which is large for Mousehole’s small size. It’s very picturesque and a pleasant place to spend time.
