Mousehole in Cornwall UK

Time seems to have stood still. The waft of gentle air whispers of a bygone era. It is as Cornwall was, centuries ago. ..
...the quaint harbour of Mousehole (pronounced Mouzel) seems to be under a spell. This picturesque harbour is one of the few Cornish villages which has remained pure, untouched and true to its rich cultural past.

The Beach, Caves and the Isle
The tiny village of Mousehole is protected from the harsh waters of the sea by a couple of burly breakwaters. The baby beach, with soft pale-gold sand, and the gentle blue waters, is one of the most beautiful and safe beaches in Cornwall. The crystal-clear water and pretty paddling pools will particularly delight little children. Ancient sea-caves, likeSlinky Dean andZawn Argan, which are said to have links to smugglers and wreckers of yore, make for a fascinating exploration. You can also take a boat out toSt.Clements Isle, a small rocky island sitting solemnly in the sea. Youll enjoy its wild natural beauty. And the locals will tell you interesting stories of an ancient hermit who made the isle his home.

“Loveliest village in England”
This darling child of Cornwall is said to be the “loveliest village in England”. And with good reason. The sprinkling of old slate-roofed cottages nestling contentedly in winding lanes, the dainty little shops selling you its alluring knickknacks, the dark cobbled alley-ways...the magic of Mousehole has been many an artists muse...

"Sea, Salts and Sail”
This is Mouseholes Annual Maritime Festival, where its fishing roots and Cornish heritage are displayed and celebrated. You can watch all the traditional fishing methods and crafts - Luggers, Gaffers, Crabbers, Cornish Pilot Gigs and Irish Curra. And you can have your fill of the various Cornish delights while absorbing the haunting Celtic music and captivating Cornish dance-forms.

Christmas candles and faerie lights
Yuletide at Mousehole is an enchanting time. The whole village comes together to celebrate in joy and exultation. A spectacular and dazzling display of multi-coloured illuminations fill the happy hamlet. Santa Claus, dancing reindeer, a Christmas pudding garnished with holly sprigs, a huge “Happy X-Mas!”, cherubs and white angels, a delightful dolphin spouting water, and many other creative lights, will all twinkle merrily over you. Be there at Christmas, and bathe in its bewitching and bedazzling beauty...
