The Old Coastguard Cornwall

The Old Coastguard Mousehole Cornwall

Eat drink and sleep with stunning sea views, welcoming staff and a great atmosphere.

The Old Coastguard is a seaside hotel, restaurant / bistro and bar in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mousehole.

The hotel offers fourteen bedrooms with comfortable beds and nearly all looking out over the sparkling Cornish sea, with views across to St. Michael's Mount and the Lizard. 

The dining room and outside terrace sit atop a tropical garden that slopes down to the harbour wall and offer a beautiful location to eat or drink.  The food is well executed, delicious and simple, following the seasons and drawing from local produce and sea.

The drinks list is wide and diverse offering great options for everyone including beers, carafes and bottles of wine, decent sized spirit measures, local unsweetened apple juice for children and of course a choice of hot drinks.  All can be enjoyed inside looking out of the large picture windows or outside on the terrace.

This really is a fantastic place to relax and unwind.

For those of you with dogs The Old Coastguard is very dog friendly offering dog friendly accommodation in Cornwall and a dog friendly place to eat and drink with your dog in the bar area, on the sun deck or outside terrace.

The Old Coastguard is open every day all year (except Christmas and some days in January) and look forward to welcoming you as well as your friends, dogs or children.
