Harbour Pride Newlyn

Shortlist
£390 - £1015 per week
Book
 

Harbour Pride, a sympathetically restored pilchard press, is featured in The Sunday Times 'The 50 Best Cottages in Britain'. The property, perched right on the Old Harbour Wall at Newlyn is a tastefully decorated three storey family home. Built for comfort, and boasting spectacular views of the working harbour and Mount's Bay, the house provides peace and tranquillity in which to unwind. With two courtyard bedrooms offering complete seclusion, Harbour Pride is perfect for families with older children who want their own space, as well as supplying a retreat for artists and writers alike. The summer months offer the added attraction of watching swallows attending their nests nearby whilst sipping your drinks on the veranda.

Within walking distance of Mousehole and Penzance, Harbour Pride is just a short stroll to buy freshly caught fish from the market, to create a delicious Cornish dinner. Or if you prefer to let someone else cook, choose one of the number of impressive eating houses and pubs, or the very popular Newlyn Filmhouse. No trip to Newlyn is complete without a visit to Jelberts Ice cream parlour, the locals favourite. Enjoy all four Cornish seasons from Harbour Pride and watch the moods of the sea and sky from the comfort of your holiday home all year round.

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.

Had a lovely Easter break ideal for families with older children or younger couples, as lots of stairs but worth it if you are fully able ,great location excellent property very comfortable, ??

April 2019

Harbour Pride is a wonderful holiday home with everything in it that you could possibly need. The house was extremely clean when we arrived and there was even a pint of milk in the fridge when we got there. The parking space is opposite the house and well worth the extra money. The bakery in Newlyn sells lovely bread and cakes and is a nice stroll each day. As we have teenage boys this wasn't a big issue for us, and our boys loved their own space, but please be aware that the 2 bedrooms downstairs cannot be accessed via the house you have to go outside to get to them. Also, the door to the outside can only be locked and unlocked from the inside so once they are in bed they cannot get back inside unless you unlock the door for them. We made sure our boys took their mobile phones to bed with them so they could phone us if they needed to get back in. We were up before them everyday so the door was always unlocked by the time they woke up but it's just something to hear in mind. We had a fantastic time here and will definitely be back.

Thank you very much for your feedback; it was so lovely to read how much you enjoyed your time there, and lovely to hear that you are planning on returning. We are sorry if it had not been clear enough that bedrooms 2 and 3 are only accessible from the exterior steps through the courtyard. Unfortunately the owner cannot change the locks from the kitchen to the courtyard, as the current arrangement is on recommendation of fire risk assessors, however, we have now added an additional note on the website to hopefully make the access/layout clearer. Thanks again for your very helpful comments. We hope to see you back in Cornwall again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Had a great stay we have recommend this property to friends and family

March 2019

Very comfortable property. Lovely views of the working harbour. Well located for access to facilities. Cinema is excellent and there is a nice pub across the road!

December 2018

The seats looking out to sea are worth a lot! A proper working harbour that you can watch for hours. Altogether a lovely setting to get away from it all.

October 2018

A beautiful location overlooking Newlyn harbour. A real plus is the The Red Lion pub opposite, which sells great fresh food at very reasonable prices.

October 2018

Lovely cottage, really well equipped. Beautiful views over the harbour from the numerous cushioned window seats. Easy walking into town, and to Mousehole and Penzance which were short walks in either direction. Lots of galleries and delicious places to eat within a few minutes walk - great pub across the road. Fab to have private parking space. Only concern was the steep stairs from the ground floor (lounge and bedroom) to the kitchen /dining area below, slipped a few times but thankfully no injuries. Overall a brilliant place to stay, recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. We are glad to hear that you liked Harbour Pride, but very sorry to hear that the stairs proved to be a bit of a problem. As you rightly mention, and we state in the additional information section for this property, there are some steep steps inside the property, as well as outside, which we appreciate may not be suitable for everyone. We were glad to hear that you were all ok and that you otherwise enjoyed everything that this lovely cottage has to offer.Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

There are lovely views of the harbour from most windows and the window seats are great. The property is well equipped and easy to keep warm and cosy. We spent some time watching a seal catching fish in the harbour just under the window, which was lovely.

March 2018

Excellent location close to all amenities. Easy walk to local shops, 2 brilliant pubs just 2 mins from the cottage. Walking distance to Mousehole and Penzance.

July 2017

A wonderful cottage in a lovely location, beautiful views and lovely walks, a fabulous place for unwinding and spending quality time with family and friends, can't wait to return !!!!!!

May 2017

Overpriced for a property that is really only suitable for two people.

October 2016

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you found this to be only suitable for 2. It has 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6, with plenty of seating and living space, but the sleeping arrangements are on split levels, which may not suit all parties. One of the team have contacted you for more details, as we would always want to ensure that properties meet guests expectations, and we would be interestd to get more information from you about what it was that didn't work for your party. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Cutomer Services.

Our second stay in this lovely home and it was just as lovely as ever. I love so much about this place. Firstly - the window seats and harbour views make me feel so happy... It can take ages to go out because those window seats just draw you to them! Secondly, the split levels are perfect for our family, the fact our teenage/young adult children can have their own space is definitely an incentive for them to still come on holiday with us. They love this place and all its quirks, as well as feeling like they have their own apartment. Comfort, cleanliness and character are key things we want from a holiday property and this certainly delivers. To top it all off, I love the location. We love the Minack theatre, Mousehole, Porthcurno beach, the Logan Rock - all close by. We will be back!

August 2016

fabulous stay very convenient but did find the car space a little awkward to get into

Thank you very much for sending in your comments; we are glad that you had such a great time here. We are pleased to also now report that the owners of Harbour Pride have organised a new parking space which is much easier to get into, and is directly opposite the cottage, which we hope you will agree, is fantastic news. Thanks again and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

The property was lovely. It has obviously been loved and cared for by a family. Lovely outside spaces and lots of thought given to the decor.
