  • "The location was ideal."

    Information should be given on steps at the back of the property, we could see the front steps from photos. With an elderley Lab we had to lift him in and out. There is not a sharp knife at all, this has been mentioned before and nakes it difficult when cooking. Also the saucepans are losing their coating and dont look good. No egg cups either, so had to improvise. Could do with some board games, playing cards etc couldn't find any in the cupboards. The house was clean but quite tired in places and needs a bit of TLC and some of crockery replaced as chipped. We dont like to give bad reviews on any place we stay, but think the owner should know if they havent visited in a while

  • "A beautiful, well equiped cottage, the kind of place that makes you feel like you’re at home."

    Has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The attic is set up so well, the view is sensational! The location of the cottage is perfect too.

  • "Beautiful cottage, perfect for a couple or small family."

    We had a lovely stay.

  • "The house is situated on a steep, busy road."

    But the effort, if you are walking, is worth it. There are also plenty of pretty, meandering, side lanes and paths that will take you down to the bay. And the bus routes (e.g., to Mousehole or Land’s End) are fantastic. The house was perfect. Quiet and clean. Perhaps chilly for colder days and nights. The welcoming gifts of Prosecco and creamed scones were appreciated. We are walking holidaymakers and so for us Newlyn is nicely located for discovering the coastline. We also like the cinema and The Red Lion pub as well as the stroll along the promenade to Penzance. We will most probably return to the same house.

  • "Overall the accomodation was fine, a clean house, a lovely shower and within walking distance of the village."

    There are some cute cafes in the village. However, the house is on a main road with traffic often passing including tractors (so if you're a light sleeper this may affect you). Parking opposite the house was not always possible, and at times we had to park in other streets.

  • "We throughly enjoyed our stay at 5 Parc Terrace."

    Newlyn is a lovely village with lovely restaurants (Mackrel Sky Seafood, The Bridge) Café (Duke St Cafe) and Pubs (The Swordfish) all of which are dog friendly. The house is in a perfect location to walk to Penzance and Mousehole and a bus route which runs through can also be used to get to other areas/sights of Cornwall. This information written in the welcome pack would have been useful. The house was on a steep hill, a good way to walk off the food and drinks, and we were lucky with parking to have had a pace on the road just outside the house. The house itself was decorated lovely, clean and was everything we needed for a week with our dog. The gifts on arrival were a lovely touch! Thank you for a lovely week and we would definitely recommend to stay here as a base for exploring Cornwall

  • "Lovely property."

    Could do with a few more kitchen items. Mainly some more glasses - tall tumblers/pint glasses. Also kitchen utensils eg. Spatula, sharp knifes.

  • "I do think that you should state that the property is on a steep hill, will limited on road parking."

    Whilst we managed, even though my wife had a broken foot, we feel older couples may not cope so well. Additionally there really wasnt that much local information on amenities, attractions and restaurants. Certainly with regard to local vicinity dog walks there was no information at all.

  • "I can't complain about the cleanliness as this was spot on apart from a filthy grill pan in the cooker."

    No dressing table so very difficult to get ready and do hair and make up. Living room very uncomfortable. The 2 sofas are past the best and once your on them your in a hole and the tv is housed on the wall very high up! Felt unable to relax and it gave me a bad neck. No tv upstairs at all which won't be an issue to all but was to me. These are all issues that can be easily addressed. Beds were comfy. Main bedroom is on the main road side which is also on a bus route which can get quite noisy. Again if your a light sleeper this won't be for you Traffic struggles to get up and down this very steep bank. You can't park outside but we always managed to park close by but if your a nervous driver this won't be the place for you.... Lovely touch of scones and wine on arrival though.

  • "The actual house is lovely - so many beds for a good family holiday."

    Kitchen and bathroom are a fantastic size. Couldn’t fault the property. The only down side is the parking. I knew we didn’t have an allotted parking space but I had no idea we’d have to search for a space on a very steep hill and bury the car in a wall if we couldn’t get near to the pavement. Not ideal with a dog and 5 month old baby!

  • "The property was centrally located for our activities in the area and a good back to explore."

    We specifically enjoyed our walks to the harbour to collect fresh local fish and seafood. The property was clean, comfortable and suitable for our requirements. The only issue with the property was there was no parking and finding parking in the surrounding area could be challenging.

  • "Arrived extremely late in the day at the lovely cottage."

    A lovely welcome pack of scones and goodies including doggie treats awaited us. Cottage was extremely clean, fresh and extremely comfortable. One of the cleanest properties in which we have stayed. Although it was high season we always managed to easily find a parking spot nearby. A lovely house to explore the area. I would certainly book again.

The property

Located in the charming town of Newlyn is a stylish mid-terrace cottage, where a small family can rest during an exciting getaway to the Cornish coast.

Several steps take you up to the entrance and a lovely front patio where you can enjoy a morning coffee alongside the fresh sea air.

The ground floor houses a homely sitting room, perfect for summer and winter months with its bright interior, Smart TV, and toasty open fire centered around two attractive sofas.

Continuing to impress is a sociable dining room where a family table takes centre stage, ideal for hosting dinner parties with home-cooked food from the amply-equipped kitchen next door, complemented by country-style red tile flooring.

Also on this floor is a utility storage room and a quaint rear courtyard with bistro seating, great for alfresco dining in the summer.

Ascend to the first floor and discover two bedrooms—a charming double room and a cosy bunk bedroom, both boasting generous storage, indulge in the luxurious bathroom, adorned with an enticing roll-top bath, and walk-in shower then immerse yourself in the picturesque sea views that unfold gracefully from the windows on this elevated level.

Discover your local amenities in the town centre of Newlyn, boasting a range of shops for you to stock up on essentials, as well as pubs and eateries where you can spend evenings out of the kitchen.

Stroll over to the colourful harbour and watch gentle boats bob along before walking over to the golden sands of Newlyn Tolcarne Beach.

Penzance is just over a mile away, a popular port town, home to even more amenities and attractions including National Trust's Trengwainton Garden, Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Morrab Gardens, and the lively Penzance Promenade.

Alternatively, catch a train over to the busy resort town of St Ives and spend a day exploring Porthgwidden Beach, St Nicholas Chapel, and Bamaluz Beach.

Other attractions worth a visit include Paradise Park, JungleBarn Cornwall, Flambards Theme Park, the awe-inspiring South West Coast Path, and boat trips out to St Michaels Mount.

Make 5 Parc Terrace your base for an exciting coastal break.

About the location


Penzance 1.2 miles; Marazion 6.6 miles; St Ives 8.9 miles.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint town in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all seafaring craft. This Cornish town is clustered around the harbour, with its historic 800 year old quay (the Mayflower actually left for America from this quay, not Plymouth) curling around a few small boats on the western side. Famous for the Newlyn school of Art and Newlyn Copper, the Cornwall Coastal Path passes through the town, as does the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along both, with basking sharks, dolphins and grey seals often seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing, and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport as well as surf fishing for sea bass. Mounts Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.
