A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MOUSEHOLE.....

Mousehole pronounced ‘Mowzel’ is one of the most beautiful unspoilt fishing villages in Britain with its granite and slate cottages and its maze of narrow winding streets.

 

It provides a choice of shops, art and craft galleries, inns and places to eat.

 

There are two very safe sandy beaches that are ideal for families with young children and at the side of the harbour there is a large stony beach with rock pools and a paddling pool that has been set amongst the rocks. On the other side of the harbour is the Mousehole cave that was used by generations of Cornish smugglers.

 

Mousehole Bird Sanctuary was founded in 1928 and treats around 1500 birds a year, it became famous after the Torrey Canyon disaster in 1967 when over 8,000 oiled sea birds were treated in the hospital.

 

The sanctuary is now a registered charity and run solely on voluntary contributions. Visitors are very welcome and admission is free.
