Mousehole lies in the Penwith area of Cornwall which is the furthest SW part of the county.
Penwith is a place apart with its dramatic coastline enjoying wide golden beaches and secluded coves too. There is safe bathing (often with life guards in attendance) and on the Atlantic coast boasts some of the best surfing in the UK.
There is spectacular cliff top walking, stone circles and other prehistoric sites to visit , together with old engine houses and the remains of the tin and copper mines that once provided much employment in Cornwall.
There are numerous art galleries and museums all over Penwith most notably the Tate Gallery in St Ives and The Penlee Gallery in Penzance both of which have international reputations.
The climate is mild and supports a variety of sub tropical plants and there are many wonderful gardens to visit.
There are a wealth of places to eat out in, often in locations that overlook the sea. These range from cafes, pubs and restaurants and Cornwall is gaining an increasing and deserved reputation for the quality of its food (especially seafood and locally sourced produce) and drink.
There are many festivals and events that occur throughout the year.
For those wishing to visit the Scilly Isles there is a daily ferry service from Penzance and frequent flights from Lands End airport.
Mousehole lies on the National cycle route No 3 leading to Lands End in the west and to Penzance, Marazion and St Michael's Mount in the other direction.
