Top 5 Villages to Explore in South West Cornwall

Our holiday cottages, situated in Mullion, West Cornwall, are ideally situated to visit some of the most picturesque and quintessential fishing villages and towns that West Cornwall has to offer.

Mullion its self is a the largest fishing village situated on the Lizard Peninsular.  We have, good inns, plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops and galleries for you to enjoy during your stay with us – and right on the door step too!

But if you want to explore further afield, we are just a stones throw from some of the most beautiful destinations Cornwall has to offer.  Below are our top 5 villages to explore when you visit west Cornwall next…

Top 5 villages to explore when you visit west Cornwall

1. Cadgwith

A tight cluster of thatched cottages lining the valley with a small fleet of colourful fishing boats and a shingle beach – this little fishing village is simply picture perfect!

Enjoy a mooch through the streets before exploring the north of the village where you can take a glimpse at ‘The Devils Frying Pan’ – a huge 200ft deep hole in the cliffs, formed as a result of a sea cave roof falling in.

2. Marazion

Some have named Marazion as Cornwall’s creative centre with plenty of resident artists, galleries and craft shops to explore.  It is also said to be the oldest town in Britain, with a fascinating history, and beautiful views of the Lizard Peninsular.

Another thing that attracts many to Marazion is St Michael’s Mount – rising out of the sea, just half-a-mile offshore, you will be able to see the castle built at the top.  You can get there either by foot at low tide or take a short boat ride.

For nature lovers there are some great opportunities on the local beach for bird-spotting and dolphin watching.

3. Mousehole

One of our favourites, with plenty happening throughout the year (not just summer!), Mousehole is a picturesque fishing port with cute cobbled streets and of course yet another sandy beach for you to relax on.  There is also an aquarium which we guarantee the little ones will love!

Once you have finished exploring the town, why not take a walk over to the Minack Theatre; a beautiful open-air theatre overlooking the coast with perfect views while you enjoy a delicious homemade picnic.

4. St Ives

What list of villages to explore in Cornwall would be complete without the famous St Ives!

The epitome of a quintessential British seaside town, with plenty here for you to explore – from boutique shops and galleries to cafes, restaurants and inns, including The Sloop Inn, which has been around since 1312 and is one of Cornwall’s oldest pubs!

Every May, St Ives hosts their very own Food and Drink festival – a must do if you are visiting during this time!  With an abundance of mouth-watering food to taste and buy and also Cornish wine – defiantly worth a taste!

Whatever the season, this pretty harbour side town always has beautiful views across the bay and beyond – Keep an eye out for the seals!

5. Penzance

Finally, Penzance is another must-see on your next visit to west Cornwall.  The name comes from Pen Sans, which means holy headland, and it’s the most westerly major town in Cornwall and a thriving commercial hub for the Land’s End Peninsular. The town itself is filled with top notch restaurants for foodies and plenty of shops to browse.

Famous for its pirates, Penzance is a historical port, which provides easy access to the beautiful isles of Scilly via ferry, and has one of the mildest climates in the UK which will explain the abundance of palm trees and sub-tropical gardens which you can explore.

If you are in to history, this town is loaded with striking architecture and ancient sites to visit too in the surrounding areas.
