The Langley Tarne holiday home details

Set within the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mousehole is The Langley Tarne, a charming bolt-hole retreat for two. This characterful cottage is full of original features from its earlier days as a sail loft, lovingly retained including stripped wooden floorboards, sash windows and window seats. These, along with the cosy open fire place, oversized armchairs and sofas and the claw foot roll-top bath for two, make the cottage perfect for a romantic escape.

Mousehole lies 3 miles west of Penzance on the southern coast of West Cornwall, a short scenic bus ride from Penzance train station that run every 20 minutes.This quintessential seaside village with its narrow streets and quaint stone cottages, is a popular travel destination. Along the harbour front are a wonderful selection of galleries, gift shops and restaurants, while at low tide there is a safe, sandy beach within the harbour walls. Further nearby beaches include Porthcurno, Penzance Promenade beach and Lamorna Cove. And if a four legged friend is on holiday too, try Salt Ponds beach or Roskilly beach which are dog friendly all year round. Walk up the hill from Mousehole and discover 300 miles of beautiful coastline walks. In every season there is something magical to experience from the spring time woods and hedgerows full of wild flowers and bluebells, to the dramatic winter waves when they crash against the gigantic granite rocks rising out of the Cornish sea.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • The Sea Salts and Sail Festival 13th -15th July. A photographer’s dream, this nostalgic event is enormous fun.
  • The Mousehole carnival 12-14th August (12th being a lifeboat day with helicopters and lifeboats).
  • Halloween in Mousehole is not to be missed with many houses decorated and local restaurants joining in. Equally when staying during Bonfire Night or New Year’s Eve you’ll be treated to impressive fireworks over the harbour.
  • Newlyn is a lovely two mile walk from Mousehole along the promenade. The Newlyn Art Gallery is home to many wonderful artworks from the Newlyn school of artists.
  • Breathe in the sea air along Penzance promenade and if you’re feeling brave, take a dip at Jubilee Pool, the celebrated Art Deco seawater lido.
