This was such a lovely, welcoming place to stay for our family of 5 - high on the hill above Newlyn Harbour. The photos really don't do it justice ! The rooms are all large and well-appointed and the views are just *magical* ! I had people sighing over the views I took from the upstairs bathroom windows :) The view across the bay to St Michael's Mount is absolutely wonderful - watching the tide roll in and out, and the light shift over the water. Simply the best start to the day to grab a coffee and open up the folding doors and gaze out over that spectacular view. There is a local Co-Op within easy walking distance (although the hill is *steep* coming back up !), and lots of interesting places to eat or have a drink. I would highly recommend the Meadery in Newlyn - and also the very slick new cinema, which is a great place to just have a bite to eat and a drink, without actually watching a movie ! We also discovered a lovely walk along the pretty lane to Paul and to dinner at the King's Arms.... All in all, a gorgeous place to stay and a super holiday ! I'm already planning the next stay !


Absolutely loved the house. The views left us in awe, and every morning I would pull back the bi folding doors and look out at st Michael's mount and the fishing boats. The aga was a joy and not as intimidating as I thought - to have a warmed through bagel and coffee sitting out on the decked area overlooking the above is something that will stay with me for a long time. The property is warm and very spacious - there were 5 grown adults and our big Labrador on our family holiday . The bedrooms and the ensuite bathrooms are finished to an impeccable standard. The kitchen is very well equipped - the fridge is amazing and can hold a weeks worth of shopping easily and there is a separate wine fridge - heaven ?? The house is completely enclosed so no worrying about children or pets escaping!! The roads to the property are very narrow and steep - we have a 4x4 car and getting past some of the parked cars on the roads to the property were a bit of a challenge so hill starts come into there own . The walk down to the harbour is about 10 mins and then you can keep walking along the seafront to Newlyn - however the walk back up takes a tad longer, and gives the heart a very good workout. We did try Lewis 's fish and chip shop as recommended in the welcome pack- and they were delicious - (hubby is still in shock from the cost as we don't eat out much £35 for 5 portions) he was much happier when every last bit was eaten. Absolutely loved our stay here - whatever the weather there is something to do , great big tv, cupboards filled with games , books and dvd's wifi . Totally amazing did not want to leave and would like to keep this little gem of a cottage secret ??

Newlyn Harbour

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.

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. 

Things to do near Newlyn

While self catering in Newlyn, why not leave the car behind and take the gorgeous mile-long walk along the promenade to the famous harbour town of Penzance. With the backdrop of Mounts Bay, St Michael’s Mount glistens in the distance, with the Isles of Scilly just a short boat trip away. To indulge your inner shopperholic you'll find a whole host of shops in the town centre.  Our tip would be to pay a visit to the famous Chapel Street  for some great independent shops - and then relax in one of the town’s many cafes and bars.

Trereife Manor House & Gardens 

Located on the outskirts of Newlyn, Trereife Estate offers a great day out, with a centuries old manor set amongst beautiful gardens. Stop off at the Stableyard Cafe for a quick bite or cup of coffee after a day at the beach, or enjoy the stunning surroundings at your own pace. Well worth a visit on a sunny day.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.
