Driving through the narrow streets of Mousehole is quite a challenge, so it is best to park either on the quayside car park or in the large car park just outside the village on the road from Penzance. Mousehole is a village to explore by...More

Visited upon recommendation..... very pretty but driving through village is a bit of a nightmare, very narrow and windy, and parking in the harbour very hard work!

Pronounced ‘Mawzil’, don’t attract the ire of the locals! A magnificent small harbour with a mouse-sized entrance. Very picturesque, with cafe facilities to support. Lovely narrow lanes that are a challenge to the best of drivers. But part of the charm.
