  • "Newlyn is something special, so many lovely restaurants and having the fish yard just on the doorstep was amazing with the added benefit of lovely fresh fish."

    Walter is a great cottage to base yourself out of. The cottage was comfortable and immaculate, clean and tidy with everything that we needed. Loved that the cottage has been in the family for over 150 years with some awesome photos of then and now. Would defiantly book the cottage again. Highly recommended.

  • "Comfort-wise, the cottage felt like a home from home, being enjoyable to come back to after each day's excursions."

    Catering-wise, we were also thoughtfully provided for at the start of our stay. The cottage was very clean and extremely well equipped, with modern appliances and furnishings that enhanced the experience of staying there whilst still managing to retain the charm of the property. The owners have supplied their family links with the cottage that go back to when it was first built, and can be rightfully proud of their contribution to the cottage's history and upkeep. It was a privilege to stay there.

  • "We had a lovely week at WALTER."

    Paul and Stephanie were incredibly welcoming. The cottage is comfortable, well-equipped, lovingly restored. It's well situated close to the harbour and beach, with a long-stay car park just across the road. Would definitely recommend it.

  • "We had the most amazing stay in Walter."

    It was immaculately clean with everything we needed from kitchen roll to playing cards, milk and tea bags! You really did think of everything to accommodate guests. The beds were comfy and we all slept well after some great walks into Mousehole, Penzance and to the Marazion Beach. Would definitely recommend and hopefully be back to stay again. Thank you

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. We try to think of everything and make WALTER as much like a home as possible. Really hope you can return. Best wishes Paul & Stephanie Property Owner

  • "From the minute we stepped through the door to the Walter it felt like home."

    Everything you could possibly need was provided, and more! From a welcome pack with fresh bread and milk, to tea, coffee and hot chocolate and dog treats, not to mention the delicious cakes! If, like us, you had a dog with you. You can tell this has been well thought of. Dog bowls and a mat are provided, as well as doggy towels and throws etc. Easy to clean floor’s throughout downstairs and then a gate on the bottom of the stairs to stop your four legged friend roaming upstairs. The whole place was spotless and you could tell it was really cared for. The attention to detail was amazing, everything matching and everything just felt in the right place. Although there is no parking at the property, we parked in the small local car park which was about 100m from the cottage and paid £15 for the week. We were coming and going all the time and never struggled to find a place. Newlyn itself was lovely. We ate a few times at the Fisherman’s Arms, which we can highly recommend and the ice cream from S Jelberts was amazing.

    Many thanks for your lovely comments Samantha. We do everything ourselves to try and ensure that WALTER is a real home from home. So glad you loved Newlyn and visited Jelberts. Best wishes, Paul & Stephanie Property Owner

    ! Had some lovely touches and the owner had left us some real treats which were greatly appreciated. The extra doggie towels and games came in handy as it was so wet some days ! We would have given 5 stars had the back yard been a little bit bigger. Nevertheless we still loved the cottage !!

    Thanks for your comments Julie, and that you were able to make us of the games on any wet days. We're really sorry you couldn't give us a five as there is nothing we can do about the size of the yard. Thanks again, Paul and Stephanie Property Owner

    This lovely cottage is very clean and very well equipped. Everything is provided, from beach towels to doggy biscuits over dishwasher tablets! Four cakes and fresh milk welcomed us upon our arrival. We felt very much at home immediately. The bedrooms on the first floor are very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Very good beds, quiet neighbourhood (except for the sea gulls

    Many thanks for your kind comments Siska, especially the fact that you felt at home which is very much our aim. We try to provide for all our guests needs and are pleased that you felt we succeeded in this. Best wishes Paul & Stephanie Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time at Walter."

    It is ideally situated for walking & also seems to have good public transport. Newlyn is a great place to watch the boats in the harbour & sample local fish in numerous excellent eating places. We particularly liked Mackerel Sky Seafood Bar and Argoe. Also enjoyed ice cream at Jelbeer’s!

  • "Overall a lovely property I would rent again."

    More plug sockets would be useful particularly in the back bedroom as they were covered by the bed making using a hairdryer, for example, difficult in that room. I would definitely rent again as a couple or family but for 2 couples I would prefer a property with an ensuite bathroom in addition to the main bathroom. I did also think a bit more could be made of the outside courtyard but that's a minor quibble. The location was excellent and everything else about the property bar the above was excellent.

  • "Walter is a fisherman’s cottage which has been tastefully modernised whilst retaining many traditional features."

    Excellent accommodation.. spotlessly clean and well equipped throughout to ensure a comfortable stay. The owners provide many thoughtful essentials meaning a relaxing start to your holiday as soon as you enter the property. Easy walking distance into Newlyn with great pubs and restaurants. 30 minutes walk to Penzance and Mousehole. Purchased a weekly rover ticket online to pay for parking in council car park very near property. This can also be used when parking elsewhere in Cornwall. Would recommend staying at Walter

  • "Walter is a wonderful addition to Newlyn's dog-friendly holiday cottages, and after 20 odd years of holidays in Newlyn they don't pop up that often!"

    Nestled among other old fisherman's cottages on one of the streets that escaped 20th century redevelopment Walter is first class in just about every respect, comfortable, warm, very well equipped, and gets good wifi and TV signal. The St Peter's Hill car park is a couple of minutes walk away, a real bonus for Newlyn.

  • "We had a fantastic stay in this wonderful home."

    Brilliantly located. Great shower, extremely comfortable beds. Cooked fresh fish most days but properly tested the kitchen equipment by making a lasagne. Everything we needed was there. Fab pub (The Red Lion) round the corner and for something fancier, there was Argoe just down the path. Can’t wait to return.

    Dear Dr Fay, thank you so much for your generous review. We are so pleased that you had everything you needed in the kitchen that you found the beds comfortable, and that discovered how much Newlyn has to offer. We look forward to hosting you again. Best wishes Property Owner

    Firstly thank you to Paul and Stephanie for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage Walter. From walking in the door we felt like home from home. The cottage was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed for our break. The welcome pack of fresh bread, milk, butter and muffins oh not forgetting the biscuits for our dog was a lovely touch. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing stay and is close to all local amenities and the local pub a few minutes walk away. We have come home feeling totally refreshed and chilled after our break. Highly recommend Walter for anyone looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of the world.

The property

Well-positioned within the fishing port town of Newlyn in Cornwall is Walter, a characterful two-bedroom cottage.

Enjoying sea views, just a stone's throw away from the harbour and beach, whilst featuring original beamed ceilings, a stone feature fireplace, and a well-equipped kitchen, the charming property welcomes four guests, perfect for couples, friends, and families alike.

Make use of the open-plan living space, dotted with all expected appliances and homely furnishings to ease your self-catering stay; prepare meals, dine, relax, and read one of many books on offer.

Head outside to the rear courtyard for a sundowner, before returning indoors to freshen up in the spacious bathroom.

Whether you choose to head out into Newlyn or stay in for the night, when sleep calls, select between the super-king-size and king-size rooms, both offering ample storage, zip/link features, and plush bedding.

Come morning, head down to the harbour or stock up on the essentials at a local convenience store, before kickstarting your itinerary of coastal attractions; take a stroll along Newlyn Tolcarne Beach, tour Newlyn Art Gallery, or take up a challenge at Cornwall's Great Escape Rooms Newlyn, all within walking distance to Walter.

The bustling town of Penzance is nearby, recommended to visit for promenade views, to brush up on your local knowledge at Penlee House Gallery & Museum, or to enjoy the outdoors at either Trengwainton Garden, an exotic landscape, or Morrab Gardens, the perfect oasis for a picnic.

Heading towards St Ives, follow Penwith Heritage Coast to reach the vantage point of Man’s Head, before visiting St Ives Lighthouse and touring Tate St Ives, a museum filled with local art exhibitions.

Plan your next trip to Cornwall with Walter as your abode.

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.
