Miles of magnificent coastal paths waiting to be discovered by you in an ‘Area of outstanding Natural Beauty’ officially designated by The National Trust. One of its most beautiful stretches on the Land’s End Peninsula is the path from Mousehole westerly to LAMORNA COVE approx 3 miles.
Along this area of cliff, which is sheltered from the South westerly winds, can be seen many tiny fields, which were formerly used to grow early daffodils, violets and anemones for market. Left long ago to grow wild, but many of the cultivated flowers have become naturalized along the cliffs, which add to the amazing proliferation of wild flowers to be seen on your walk. The breathtaking coastal scenery, the sight of the wild life around you – birds, butterflies –St Clement’s Isle - a small rocky island, just offshore outside the harbour, where it is believed there once lived an ancient hermit, look out for seals and sea birds. The famous MOUSEHOLE WILD BIRD HOSPITAL AND SANCTUARY founded in 1928, is situated about 100 yards up Raginnis Hill, on the West side of the village helping about 1500 birds each year.
Mousehole is considered to be one of the most charismatic and beautiful coastal fishing villages in Britain, virtually unchanged by modern day life. Cottages, nestled and huddled round the edge of the almost circular granite walled harbour, Cornwall’s earliest breakwater and begun in 1393 or thereabouts, is now incorporated into South Quay, yet is still easily identifiable with its massive irregular blocks of stone, leading you away from the harbours edge into a maze of narrow, winding cobbled lanes and alleyways, filled with magic and charm to tempt you at every turn.
The village offers a general village store/newsagent, a post office, a fine selection of small art galleries of local artists work, gift and craft shops and local Pub – THE SHIP INN . Choices of places to eat in the village whether it be a pasty, Cornish cream tea or fish and chips whilst sat on the harbour from the local fish and chip shop, or dinner for two in any of the exclusive little cafes and restaurants within the village, particularly 2 FORE STREET, THE CORNISH RANGE and the OLD COASTGUARD HOTEL.
Rest a while at Lamorna - its terraced café serving refreshments and light lunches, or wander up the hill through the beautiful valley, for a fresh crab sandwich at THE LAMORNA WINK INN. The coastal path leads further on towards PENBERTH COVE and PORTHCURNO, with THE MINACK THEATRE - Stunning coastline! So, remember your walking boots, binoculars and camera!
PENZANCE, 3 miles from Mousehole is the main shopping centre in the area, to include Tesco open 24 hours. Offers a diverse range of galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants, leisure centre and the famous Art deco style Jubilee Pool built in 1935, recently modernized to be found on the rocky coast between harbour and promenade.
MARAZION claimed to be the oldest town in Britain, certainly one of the oldest chartered towns in Cornwall. Charming cottages, galleries and cafes, situated on Mount’s Bay surrounded by beautiful, safe and clean sandy beaches.Pause a while for a drink or meal at THE GODOLPHIN ARMS positioned at the end of the Causeway, a must to be viewed!
Take in the atmosphere of ST MICHAEL’S MOUNT, rising majestically from the sea; it is the jewel in Cornwall’s crown, accessed at low tide on foot across the cobbled Causeway, or by a small fleet of ferry boats at high tide.
