Mullion Cove & Harbour
Situated just minutes from Mullion Cove Hotel you will find one of the most picturesque ‘storybook’ fishing harbours in Cornwall – Mullion Harbour from which the hotel takes it’s name.
Once a busy Pilchard fishing harbour Mullion Harbour has been preserved by the National Trust, and is today a magical place to visit with it’s lobster pots, quaint cobbled slipway, and old picturesque net store that provide a timeless and precious tranquillity that is difficult to find. The coloured fishing boats still support a small fishing community and fresh lobster and crab is still landed at the quays of Mullion Harbour.
With it’s equally magical tiny sandy cove (revealed only at low tide) the dramatic back drop of the high serpentine cliffs and tiny Mullion Island (now a bird reserve) it is no surprise that Mullion Cove and Harbour have featured in many historic TV and Film dramas over the years.
As a guest at Mullion Cove Hotel you can reach Mullion Harbour via the cliff path opposite the hotel or the narrow lane, both of which take you onto the harbour walls.
