This Cornish fishing village is as charming as its name suggests (though the locals pronounce it mowsle), complete with narrow, cobbled lanes, white cottages and a harbour upon which fishing boats bob merrily. For decades this was Cornwall's busiest pilchard port, but these days the tourist trade provides richer pickings, and some of the best places to stay in Mousehole these days are quite boutique-y and foodie.

This stretch of Cornwall has some exceptional coastal walks, and of course there are the beaches. But there are also a number of local artists whose galleries and studios make for an interesting rainy day itinerary.

Mousehole itself is pretty busy in summer (so if you want to book into one of the best places to stay in Mousehole you'll have to plan well ahead), and very quiet in winter - though apparently the town does put on some lovely Christmas lights.
