the Cuttlefish Mousehole, Aerial View over the Harbour


Take the A30 as far as Penzance. Follow the coast road through Newlyn into Mousehole keeping the coast on your left. Drive past the harbour (on your left) and the Ship Inn (on your right) until you see Pam’s Pantry. Cherry Garden Street starts just ahead of you, a footpath that goes up the hillside. You can normally stop to unload your car there.Walk up the hill to the top of Cherry Garden Street and above you, you will see a large granite house (with a sign saying Treen Villas on the side).  This is The Cuttlefish.

Sat Nav

Your Sat Nav should recognise the property’s postcode TR19 6RH, however as Cherry Garden Street and The Cuttlefish are on pedestrian footpaths they often don’t appear on many maps. It may be better to ask your SatNav to take you to “Mousehole; Mill Lane (crossing Chapel Street)”


If you enjoy travelling by train, then why not take advantage of the Night Riviera Sleeper Service running from London Paddington, which gets you into Penzance just in time for breakfast by the sea, and fully rested so you can start enjoying your holiday. Alternatively, if you want to take in the views, there are regular services from Paddington, Bristol, Bath, the Cotswolds, Birmingham, The Midlands, South Wales and Edinburgh with First Great Western, Virgin and Cross Country Trains.

The Cuttlefish, like most properties in Mousehole, does not have it’s own private allocated parking space. However, Mousehole has three Car Parks, the South Quay Car Park, and North Quay Car Park can be found either side of the harbour where parking is £3 a day or a weekly ticket can be purchased for £15 from Roy the attendant. Failing that, there is a car park just outside the village as you entered or try the lay-bys on the coast road. Please be warned, Mousehole can get busy during holidays and parking can be limited.
