About the location


Penzance 1 mile.

Located just a mile west of Penzance, the fishing port of Newlyn is home to the largest fleet of fishing boats in the South of England and visitors can watch the landing of fish at the market on the quay. This Cornish village is clustered around the harbour, with its old quay curling around a few small boats on the western side, and much larger quays in the centre and on the eastern side of the harbour. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along Cornwall's nearby coastal path, while basking sharks and grey seals can occasionally be seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport. Mount's Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for water sports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.

This cottage has a homely, cosy feel to it. The aga warms the kitchen up, and I enjoyed heating water for cups of tea on it. The views across Mounts bay are spectacular. The bed was comfortable. Lots of books provided about Newlyn, which were interesting. Within walking distance of Mousehole. A very relaxing holiday.

The location of the cottage is great, overlooking Newlyn Harbour. It's an ancient structure with a homely feel. We loved the cosy warmth of the AGA .

Ms Hennig, Basingstoke, October 2013

This is a lovely cosy and homely cottage. The beds are very comfortable, and we had everything we needed. It is very convenient for exploring this area of Cornwall, and there are excellent shops, including 3 fishmongers within walking distance.

Warm and cosy cottage. The view from the upstairs lounge is superb.
