We have visited this place last summer and we were very impressed and loved it a lot! We will definitely go there this coming summer as this place is heaven on earth! Lots of things to see and explore as well.

Wonderful (and popular) beaches. This is my favorite part of the coastal path. Don't forget to stop at the Minack theatre and telegraph museum.

Lovely clean beach. Nice and secluded. Great for us and the kids. Great addition of the grab rails to help you up and down to the beach. Lovely.

We are staying in a dog friendly cottage/flat in Mousehole (pronounced Mouzel!) it's called Fisherman's Haven and owned by Andrew and Diana Hilton. Of course our dogs are two small breeds and very well behaved!
