    We booked the holiday with the intention of just getting away from every day life for a short period. We hadn’t quite expected the view from the front room to be so beautiful at morning, day and night. The owners met us at Dolphins watch to hand us the keys. They live nearby but that shouldn’t put you off in the slightest. Their warm welcome put us at ease and they left us to it which felt nice. There was a lovely homely feeling about Dolphin’s Watch. There is an allocated parking spot outside Dolphin’s watch. The walk in to Newlyn is very Short with a co-op, a great chippy and great places to eat near by. Although a short walk back to Dolphin’s Watch, be mindful of the steep hills around Newlyn. (Just take it slow. You’re fine to pause and take in the views ;-)) It’s approximately a 30 min walk in to Mousehole which is worth a visit. The walk to Penzance took us approximately 40 min (we walked at a slow pace) (You can also drive to Penzance in 5 min). In terms of the accommodation, it’s nice and spacious with a dining table to sit at too. The bed was lovely and cosy and towels were provided too. We would definitely come here again. We’d also recommend Dolphin’s Watch to others!”

About the location

NEWLYN

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. It is unusual in that visitors can still watch the landing and auctioning of fish at the market, as many families have for centuries before. 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.
