    “Well placed cottage with spectacular views of the harbour.”

    Within walking distance of both Penzance and Mousehole, both well worth a visit

The property

A really cosy 17th century fisherman's cottage, right beside the 12th century harbour at Newlyn, between Penzance and Mousehole.

This Newlyn cottage is full of charm and character, with sloping floors, exposed beams, original stone fireplace and low ceilings.

From the warmth of this Newlyn cottage, you can sit watching the busy harbour with St Michael's Mount in the distance, or read about the Newlyn artists and fishermen of bygone days.

Leaving this Newlyn cottage behind, you can explore the harbour on foot, or go further afield and visit the Penlee House Gallery & Museum in Penzance, or the many attractions in the area including Land's End, St Ives and St Michael's Mount, all a short distance from your Newlyn cottage.

The outdoor Minack Theatre perched on the side of the cliff with the sea as a spectacular backdrop is a must see.

Your Newlyn cottage provides an excellent base for exploring the rich heritage of Cornwall by public transport or car.

About the location


Penzance 1 mile.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint village in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all sea baring craft. This Cornish village 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 village, 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.
