The ground floor of this dormer bungalow also plays host to a pristine family bathroom, as well as two soothing, neutrally decorated bedrooms.

Two well-presented twin bedrooms sit on the first floor of the property and share access to an attractively tiled bathroom.

A holiday of any kind can be enjoyed in this marvellous location, from world-renowned water sports to scenic walking and cycling, and a wealth of popular tourist spots including Penzance just one mile away, and the famous Land's End landmark to name but a few.

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.
