Cornwalls Fishing Villages

The picturesque villages around Cornwall are not only for sight-seeing, fishing has played a central role in Cornwall’s development over the years. There are many sights for you to visit and gain an insight into Cornwall’s fishing heritage – take a look at our top 3!



Charlestown is a perfect example of an unspoilt late Georgian port, leading it to become a popular destination for many TV and film scenes. Visit the stunning village and step aboard a real ship to get a feel for the late conditions. Eat in one of the many local eateries and be sure to visit the Shipwreck museum. The ports popularity with the public is the main reason for its existence, without the attraction to the village it may have seen much more development over the years – so keep visiting! We just love unspoilt Cornish history!



Mousehole is located close to our Falmouth based cottages, be sure to view our availability and enjoy Cornwall in luxury! A beautiful little port, well known for its storm watching! Every year Mousehole fights nature in order to preserve this dreamy little village, which we think they have done wonderfully retaining much of its charm. Wonder through the little cobbled paths and soak in Cornwall galleries and sweet little cafés. Mousehole is sure to have you feeling miles away from home.

Port Issac


Port Issac is well known from its TV setting on ITV’s Doc Martin, therefore attracting plenty of new visitors each year.  However, it has been a popular little port since the fourteenth century. Soak in Cornwall from the beauty of the sea upon a fishing trip during the summer months, or if you prefer the cliff tops you can equally breathe in the panoramic views along one of the many coastal walks here. Be sure to arrive early, there is plenty to see!
