The property

Perfectly located for touring the spectacular far south west coast of Cornwall, in particular the beautiful Lands End peninsula, this cosy cottage is set in the heart of the thriving fishing port and town of Newlyn, two minutes walk from the harbour.

You enter the cottage into the hallway leading into the open plan living room with kitchen, dining and sitting areas.

On the first floor are the two bedrooms, a double and a twin.

After relaxing for a day or two it is worth rising early to visit the bustling fish market to see the fish being sold to buyers from all over the world including the closest restaurant to the cottage, the Mackeral Sky seafood bar, named as one of the finest seafood restaurants in the County.

Set alongside the river only a minutes walk from the cottage you will have the opportunity of sampling a selection of quality dishes in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere to enjoy seafood at its finest.

Newlyn is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK with all sorts of vessels to be seen all adding to this major industry in the Cornish economy.

Also close by, and well worth a visit, is the famous Newlyn art gallery.

Both the historic seaside town of Penzance and the charming village of Mousehole can be reached by foot by a pleasant walk in either direction from the cottage along the coast.

With so many beaches, coves and fishing villages to explore in this stunningly beautiful area of Cornwall, a stay in this cosy cottage will always be enjoyed whatever time of year.

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. 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.
