  • "We loved Lookout Cottage."

    Fantastic views (even in Feb!). Very well resourced Kitchen. House would be a bit tight for 6, it was fine for us 4 adults. Walk up from the car park was about 10 minutes and not too steep. Caretaker Lisa responded quickly to a couple of questions. A very clean and well organised small house.

  • "What is not to love?"

    Peace, quiet, sea views, cosy, comfy beds, cracking shower, great base......the list is endless! The kitchen is small and could be better lit but ultimately this is not a deal breaker. We loved watching the sunrise over the harbour from our bed.

    The lighting in the kitchen has been improved with the fitting of higher wattage bulbs, many thanks for your comment. Glad to hear you enjoyed watching the wonderful sunrises over Mounts Bay, hope to see you back some day! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fantastic, home from home, everything about the cottage was perfect."

    Beautiful bedding, beds very comfortable. Everything in the property, so we'll thought out, to make our stay trully amazing. The downside no parking was hard with my partner being disabled, however we managed and knowing we were going back to the amazing views, made it just a small problem. Highly recommend the lookout. We miss the beautiful view already.

  • "Parking is a problem, and the long walk up to The property,"

    Sorry you had difficulties with the parking and walk to the property. The summary does advise the property is on a hill and that access is pedestrian only, I will review the text and see if that can be made clearer. We do offer reimbursement for parking at Sandy Cove which I timed to be a 4 minute walk up to the cottage (I am 55 years old) but recognise it may be a problem for some. Otherwise I trust you found the cottage comfortable and had a good week. Property Owner

  • "We loved staying at Lookout Cottage ."

    The views are glorious and the cottage itself is stylish and well equipped . We particularly liked the attic bedroom and our granddaughter was thrilled with it. We got used to parking on Sandy Cove carpark as there is no parking with the cottage and there was always a space which was great. We found the buses very handy too as they were just at the bottom of the road. Lookout cottage is a great base for visiting Penzance , Mousehole, Minak Theatre, Sennen , the coastal path and other places around Lands End. We would definitely return to the cottage for another holiday in the future and really recommend it.

  • "We spent a really enjoyable week here."

    The cottage was very well equipped, very clean, the views even better than expected, and location great. We liked the way it was tucked away and yet accessible. 2 mins walk to the Fisherman’s Arms for drinks and great harbour views. St Michael’s Mount, Mousehole a ‘chocolate box’ village and Marazion all worth visiting. Great access for the coastal path too.

  • "We had such a wonderful time and the property was perfect."

    Thankyou so much to the owner for holding off on pets until our stay. I loved hearing the waves every time a window was opened or you opened the door. The pub within walking and fresh fish shops just a short walk. Views from the property were stunning. Recommend the little harbour cafe run by the the pastor. Outstanding coffee and toasted sandwiches. Thankyou so very much again Em

  • "The cottage is clean, comfortable and well maintained."

    It has a lovely view of St. Michael's Mount and the harbour from all of the rooms at the front. The location is very convenient for walking along coastal paths, local buses. Car parking can be challenging. Plenty of places to eat locally.

  • "The owner was very helpful when we contacted him before our stay."

    The property is in a great location with one of the bedrooms looking on to the sea, we managed to park the car each day but in the summer it would probably be best to pay for a car park. We used public transport - buses and trains and at the moment buses are £5 a day but there is also a local bus between Mousehole and Penzance and there is a £2.50 all day ticket for that bus or it is £2 for a single, worth getting the day ticket, train to St Ives is a must, great train ride with views

    Beautiful sea view from two of the bedrooms windows, peaceful and quaint location. Couldn't park on site so parked at nearby car park for a week which the owner kindly reimbursed us.

    Great stay - only two things - I would invest in one of those little trolleys that campers use to move your stuff from the car to the house The bin wasn’t emptied when we were there - I don’t know if it needed to be in a specific place but there were no instructions other than it gets collected Tuesday night Otherwise lovely place really good facilities and best cooking stuff I’ve ever had in a cottage

    Thank you for your suggestions and comments. We are very glad your enjoyed your stay in Lookout Cottage. Ref the bins, thanks for bringing this to my attention, it was in the right place and we will ensure collection is conducted as per the weekly set schedule. Property Owner

  • "We had an excellent time in what is a well appointed cottage with good facilities."

    The owner went out of his way to ensure our stay was a pleasant one with car park permits, flowers, welcome packs etc. The cottage has a great view and Newlyn is a well positioned town to access many places in West Cornwall very easily. Brilliant beaches close by and some very nice restaurants/bars in Newlyn itself. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

  • "A wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage with incredible views over the sea and St Michaels Mount."

    All of the facilities provided were perfect and there were a few extra welcome surprises! The beds are some of the comfiest we have ever slept on and the cottage has an overwhelming homely feel, which is lovely, when sheltering from the sometimes unpredictable weather in those parts. The parking situation is a little difficult but that definitely should not put anyone off. The provided parking permit means that you always have a back up, if there is no nearby, on street parking available. The information pack from the owner is extensive and when we did need help with anything, the housekeepers were extremely accommodating, polite and helpful. I would highly recommend a stay at the Lookout Cottage and i am sure any future guests would enjoy it as much as we did.

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.
