    The cottage was quirky and we really liked the retro feel. It was in a great position with views of the sea and within easy walking distance of everything we needed. Unfortunately the beds were very hard, they could do with a topper on the mattress, we put the spare duvet on the mattress, the curtains in the bedrooms didn't keep any light out, we are used to a dark bedroom,...blinds would have been useful. Everywhere in the house was clean and bright, we loved the art work and all the ornaments. Unfortunately we did find dirty crockery in the kitchen cupboard, we washed what we needed and left a note suggesting it all needed a wash. Newlyn itself has some wonderful restaurants. It's an easy to walk to Penzance. Also it's close to some wonderful gardens, Lands End, The Lizard and St Ives. A great holiday!

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.
