Mousehole – a 45 minute walk (2.5 miles)


A paved walk all the way from Penzance to Mousehole with a wee bit of an incline as you follow the coastline with stunning views of the Mounts Bay and the Lizard in the distance

Beyond Newlyn is the picture -post card Cornish village and fishing port of Mousehole. Cobbled street, quant fisherman’s cottages, Cafe’s and bistro’s, harbour pub, art galleries and craft shops.

But be warned do not take your car beyond the Old Coastguard Hotel as the roads are very narrow
