Beautiful harbour but isn’t great for a stay if you have dogs. They aren’t allowed on most of the beaches. There is a small beach they can go on after 7pm but this is very pebbley.

If Mousehole isn't the cutest, it must be close. We had heard of it before and since we were close we decided to pop in. We were glad we did. The small community with it's narrow streets, harbour and small shops and cafes was a...More

Beautiful little harbour, could easily sit and watch the boats go by all day! More parking would be great, but never the less still a lovely little village

Stunning place but wouldn't return again due to the car park rage/stress encountered. It really needs sorting or at least a sign warning of limited parking.

Once you can find parking, Mousehole is a delightfully quaint village to stroll around. Beware of seagulls who have a liking for ice cream!!

Mousehole harbour is quaint and friendly. When the tide is out it reveals small sandy areas which are a great place to paddle and sit in the shelter of the harbour. We took a boat trip with Cormorant Cruises from the harbour which was lovely....More

We went to Mousehole several times while staying locally. The harbour has a small sandy beach and lots of little boats docked. It makes for a lovely little place to swim and the water is very clear (although there is a tiny bit of oil...More

Cute sometimes becomes over-rated. This is one of those times. Whilst the many photos you will see around show the stereotypical English, untouched village, tourists such as ourselves make it a very different place.. Its crammed. As per many other reviewers.. don't try to park...More

Mousehole (pronounced muse’ll) is undoubtedly a beautiful little harbour gem of a village on the delicious Cornish coast. It has beaches; beauty and narrow winding streets and plenty of charm. Are you a dog owner? STAY AWAY!!! I’ve never seen so many anti-dog signs, everywhere!...More

Sorry don't know about the summer but I know that we've taken both of our dogs down on a night time when we've seen the lights and that they can't go on the beach. I suggest you try the local pub for information
