Explore the town's narrow winding streets of an iconic fishing village and historic harbour, spend your days visiting the bijou boutiques and chocolate box cottages, before returning to our comfortable, cosy pub and relaxing next to the stunning harbourside view. Each room offers calming, contemporary space with a nod to the nautical.

Fuel your adventures with a hearty breakfast. Whether you opt for overnight oats or the full works, getting out of bed will feel a little easier with a freshly-prepared breakfast to start your day. Included in your room rate, simply roll out of bed and we'll do the rest.



D ylan Thomas called Mousehole the loveliest village in England. He and Caitlin even honeymooned here. While the poet was probably not every mother’s dream son-in-law material, this pub’s harbourfront location, exposed stone, oak beams and open fires would put a smile on the face of the stoniest monster-in-law. Fish and chips in its toasty bar, with hake landed in nearby Newlyn, lashings of mushy peas and Mount’s Bay views through the window, is the definition of snug smugness.
