4 Farmers Meadow
Newlyn

£351 - £720 per week
Book

At 4 Farmers Meadow you can slip straight into holiday mode as this traditional Fisherman's cottage is blissfully tucked away down a quiet lane, in the centre of the working, fishing village of Newlyn. This delightful little cottage sleeps four and whilst romantic for artists and writers, it is also a delightful family holiday home not far from all that West Cornwall has to offer. Plan your day's adventures over breakfast in the open plan sitting/dining room and then on your return, enjoy a glass of something chilled in the sun trap garden.

Spend days barefoot on the beach or swimming in the turquoise waters of Porthcurno or Sennen Cove, both just a short drive from Newlyn. Or wander into the village where you will find the Newlyn Art Gallery, a small Co-op, fishmongers, butchers, local cheese shop, greengrocers and bakers along with an impressive number of eating houses, pubs and the very popular Newlyn Filmhouse.

A beautiful cottage situated down a very narrow little lane in Newlyn within walking distance to local shops and amenities. The brochure provided by Aspects Holidays had lots of very useful information included which helped us plan out our days. We explored Porthcurno beach, St Ives, Penzance, Lands End, Mousehole as well as nearby Penzance and found that Farmers Meadow was a great central location for exploring. Be warned that the overhead shower only appears to let out boiling hot or freezing cold water which made showering very hard after a day exploring the local beaches.

Holidays in Newlyn

Newlyn is a traditional Cornish fishing town which is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK. Stroll along the pretty harbourside and you’ll be able to spot beam trawlers, long liners, crabbers and small open boats used for hand-lining.

 

Experience the buzz of a thriving, hardworking harbour and taste the freshest fish on offer in Cornwall. The harbour is overlooked by white washed and granite Cornish fisherman’s cottages interwoven by narrow lanes and cobbled alleys often too steep or narrow for a car so all you will find is the odd cat basking in the sunshine. Enjoy the buzz of Newlyn’s working harbour, visit Newlyn Art Gallery or the wonderful established gardens with breath-taking views across to the iconic Penzance Jubilee Pool.

Locally caught seafood can be purchased from the bustling fish market, fishmongers or at one of the fantastic harbourside eateries. Escape to Newlyn for a self catering holiday in a peaceful setting, within easy reach of Mousehole, Penzance and St Michael’s Mount. 

Top tip

Be sure to treat yourself to a Jelberts ice cream when staying in Newlyn!

Newlyn art community

The Newlyn School is a group of artists who came to live and work in Newlyn or the surrounding area between the 1880s and the early twentieth century. They painted en plein air (in the open air). Perhaps best known are: Stanhope Forbes, Elizabeth Forbes, Walter Langley, Harold Knight, Laura Knight, Harold Harvey. There is much documentation about the school at Penlee House.

The collection is kept at Penlee House rather than the Newlyn Gallery because Newlyn Gallery maintains a tradition of showing modern art. 

Newlyn Gallery & Exchange Gallery in Penzance Town Centre host the best of conceptual and modern art. Together with St. Ives Tate and Penlee House the four galleries host major national and international exhibitions, as well as showing the work of the Newlyn School of Art, who offer a wide range of high quality art courses run by some of the most exciting artists in the region. Read more about art classes at Newlyn school of art on our blog. Thus the area which has inspired so many artists celebrates its artistic heritage while maintaining strong links with the art world of today.

Gorgeous, clean and comfortable and just as described. Excellent file of information and excellent speedy response when we raised a query! Despite the rain we had a great anniversary weekend exploring tin (ten yrs) mines! thanks

Small but comfortable cottage in excellent location, with useful parking and pleasant outdoor space

Me and my partner and our dog stayed here. Was lovely cottage VERY clean and the location is great for walks and really close to shops and the beach! Will defiantly recommend this place to friends staying in Cornwall!

Excellent .... really clean..warm..gorgeous white bedding and towels..really light rooms...ace wood burner..2 bags of logs included...and milk in fridge...cute walled garden..loved it !!

A lovely cosy cottage in a great location. Also has a sunny garden. Great for a couple but I would not recommend for 4 adults (our party was reduced due to Covid delays and restrictions so this was not a problem for us). The kitchen is small but reasonably equipped.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments and it is great to hear that 4 Farmers Meadow worked well for you both. A lot of the more traditional fisherman's cottages in villages like St Ives, Mousehole, Newlyn and Mevagissey, just as a few examples, are packed full of character inside and out, but often a little smaller and layouts quirkier than in more modern buildings. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, so whilst it can accommodate 4, with a king size double bed and a twin bedroom, and there is dining seating for 4. The living room seating arrangement and size of the living areas/kitchen may not work for everyone. We try to give an accurate representation of the size and layout of all properties within our photos and descriptions, so hope that we have achieved that in this case, but we will continue to monitor feedback. We hope that you enjoyed your break away and all the lovely places that you got to visit while here. Tanya, Customer Services

4 Farmers Meadow is a lovely holiday cottage ideal for a couple or young family. It is in a great location for exploring the West Cornwall area and for the local town amenities. Overall super value.

Farmer's Meadow is a lovely house where you can really feel at home. It is good value for money, nicely furnished and decorated. It has the advantage of a parking space, a lovely garden and a woodburner. What we really appreciated was that it is very quiet but nevertheless conveniently located for the shops (3 minutes walk), restaurants and pubs. It has a few minor disadvantages (no washing machine or dishwasher, a bath but no real shower), but for a couple of weeks' stay you can put up with that. (There is a launderette at the casino in Penzance). Another plus is that it is dog-friendly.

4 Farmers Meadow is a lovely little cottage. Comfortable, clean and welcoming, it was a great base for our stay in Cornwall. I’d definitely book 4 Farmers Meadow again!

A really comfy warm cottage which I would definitely book again. The weather was rainy and cold in February so it was wonderful to light the wood burner and stay in. The garden was perfect for my dog to potter in. Parking was a great bonus. There were 2 adults in our party and one small dog and it was a perfect size.

We had a lovely stay in this cosy cottage. Garden was ideal for dog, good woodburner, comfy beds and nicely furnished and well equipped. Parking space a bonus and very convenient for everything in Newlyn!

We had a lovely week here. The cottage was clean and comfortable and well equipped. It also has a parking space. The cottage is situated in the centre of the town so handy for the beach, park, pubs and restaurants, which were dog friendly. The bus service is good too.

This is a lovely cottage, in a great location. It has everything you need and we appreciated the welcome package of tea, coffee, milk, afternoon tea etc. Everything has been thought though. We didn’t want to leave and felt like we could live there!

We had a lovely week in Newlyn . We used 4 farmers meadow as a base as we like to travel around and visit places whilst in Cornwall . Nice accessible walk along the sea front from the cottage . Lots of little shops , eateries etc within walking distance . Pretty harbour also . Very cosy , clean , quirky cottage . Perfect for a family and a dog . A little on the small side for older children as second bedroom is small , however the beds are comfy .

A fabulous week in a lovely homely, clean cottage. Newlyn is a busy and interesting village with a few nice shops and pubs. We would stay again.

A really lovely place to stay. Close to lots of nice beaches and interesting places to visit. We visited St Michael’s Mount, Penzance, Mousehole, St Ives, Falmouth and lots of local beaches (Praa Sands was our favourite). The house is tastefully furnished and the garden is a nice place to sit in the evening. The stairs are very steep, so I wouldn’t recommend the cottage for very young children, unless a stair-gate is fitted. We would definitely return another time, we had a lovely week.

Thank you for your comments and it is great to hear how much you liked 4 Farmers Meadow. A lot of the more traditional Cornish cottages are packed full of character inside and out, but often a little smaller and layouts/stairs more quirky and steeper than in more modern buildings, so it is definitely an important consideration when booking a property like this. We would always want to be as open and honest as possible, and try to give an accurate representation of properties within our photos and descriptions, and are sorry that we hadn't previously noted the stairs. We have now amended the website notes to state that the stairs are steep. Thanks again for the feedback, and hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

This cottage is ideally located only a few minutes walk into newlyn and perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. The property is beautifully decorated and has it's own safe & secluded garden & parking space! Ideal for a couple or a family with small children.
