Mousehole (pronounced "Mowzel") is just one of the numerous fishing villages you'll pass through along the Coast Path. Dylan Thomas described it as the loveliest village in the UK and it’s said that the village was inspiration for Thomas’s Under Milk Wood.

Mousehole doesn’t fail to impress with its picturesque harbourside setting, narrow streets and thick set fishermen’s cottages.

Along the harbour road you’ll find galleries, gift shops and restaurants while in the harbour itself there’s a safe sandy beach at low tide popular with families. The village is famous for its Christmas lights which illuminate the harbour in the depths of winter and for Tom Bawcock’s Eve, a traditional pre-Christmas celebration commemorating a local hero who saved the village from famine by bracing the stormy seas to bring back fish for the starving villagers. Locals mark the event by baking the famous Stargazey Pie made with mixed fish, egg and potato with fish heads poking out through the crust.
