Harbour Pride

£418 - £1099 per week

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, for a delicious 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.

Fabulous holiday home with fantastic views. Parking available at a cost but well worth it in this busy village. We were two couples holidaying together and the layout was great for this. Stairs in the house could be a little steep for those with mobility issues but no problem for our party. Would recommend.

A quirky and comfortable property in an excellent location, with quality fittings and a very comfortable bed! It’s well worth taking advantage of the permit parking space located just over the road. It’s a great location for an easy walk along to Mousehole and Penzance/Marazion Highly recommend the Red Lion pub just opposite with its friendly staff and lovely food and a visit to the local fish shops just down the road. We loved our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to return.

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.

We loved our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to return.

For us Harbour Pride definitely had the wow factor with the layout of the property making the most of the harbour views, day or night . The car park space is such a bonus as it is so near to the cottage to unload and load and can be seen from the cottage. We enjoyed walking locally and also to Penzance , Mousehole and the train to St Ives. Our week at Harbour Pride was great and we will book again without any hesitation .

Spacious, relaxed and comfortable accommodation with great views over the harbour to Penzance. Good value for money!

As always, we had a great time in Newlyn. The service and accommodation were brilliant. The location is perfect. A beautiful location overlooking Newlyn Harbor. A real plus is the short walk to the bus and to the Red Lion Pub opposite, our favorite pub. We'll definitely be back. . Petra and Thomas

No review!!!!!!

Had a fabulous week at Harbour Pride. View from dining room window is just the best, especially if you are interested in boats or the fishing industry as it is constantly changing. The stairs from the main floor down to the kitchen/dining room are steep so might not suit everyone. Very convenient for the local bus into Penzance or Mousehole. Wouldn’t think twice about returning.

It was our first time using Aspects Holidays and what can I say about Harbour Pride it is so many things, slightly quirky it’s the perfect place for a quiet getaway, big enough for a large family and a great base for people wanting to explore all the local sites. We were shocked at how big it was, it was spotless and it had everything we needed, the parking space being invaluable. I really couldn’t fault the house or Aspects, we only needed to contact them once about bin collections and they were more than happy to sort it for us. We have been back 2 days and are already looking through the website for next year’s holiday. We can’t thank you enough for our wonderful family week away.

This was our second stay at Harbour Pride in 6 months, we never usually visit the same place twice but the property and its location is just perfect for us. We love it!! There is everything you need both inside and out and it's a superb base for exploring some of Cornwall's most spectacular sights. A seal even joined us for a swim in the harbour!

This was our third visit to Harbour Pride which tells you how much we rate the place. Unfortunately the bedding seemed sub-standard and the pillows were bouncy and uncomfortable, so we cut our holiday short in search of a better night's sleep! Such a shame, because the rest of the house is really beautifully furnished and equipped (the kitchen is brilliantly stocked with every utensil you could want) and the views of course are to die for.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry to hear that you found it to be so uncomfortable on this occasion. The owner has always been very grateful for your constructive feedback in the past and has always tried to act upon it. After previous feedback on the bedding, she began a complete overhaul of the mattress toppers and protectors, duvets and linen. She now only uses Soak and Sleep products and started using French linen sheets because she found they were the best; most comfortable and most eco-friendly. Over the last 18 months she tried to replace everything, top to bottom but after checking on everything following this feedback, she realised that she had not changed the single duvets in the top bedroom or put on new mattress toppers there. This was a complete oversight, and she is genuinely very sorry and saddened to hear that you found it so uncomfortable, and you have likely left feeling that your previous comments were disregarded, when in fact she felt they were spot on. She has informed us that this has now all been corrected, and we will be in touch to discuss this with you further. Tanya, Customer Services

We had an amazing time whilst staying at Harbour Pride. The service and accommodation were brilliant. The location was perfect for our families different preferences. Locals were very welcoming and the seals, and kingfishers even came to say hi. We'd definitely return.

Fantastic location and property - recommended (though not for all!) Wonderful views and location. Definitely pay for the parking pass, the spot is just opposite the door. Well equipped and comfortable. Great to have an outside table and sofa as well as indoor, both with the views and our daughter loved the courtyard with hanging swing chairs. 'Not for all' for two reasons both stairs related. To get down to the central floor (from entrance, lounge and master bed) to where the kitchen/dining is has an extremely steep staircase with very narrow treads. it does have good handrails but would be unsuitable for anyone unstable on their legs! As others have said bedrooms 2 and 3 can also only be accessed by going outside and down more steps (which is only partially under cover) this would be quite a pain in wet weather. Fine for teens but not great for younger children.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad you enjoyed the amazing location of this lovely traditional Cornish Cottage. It has so much character and with its traditional nature, the stairs internally and externally do mean that this property may not suit everyone, but for those who are ok with the steps and layout of the property, you get to benefit a great property with enviable views, a layout that can offer some real flexibility and privacy and lots of charm! We are glad that it worked well for your party and that you had a fantastic time. Tanya, Customer Services

A lovely place to stay, with great views. Nicely located and has the benefit of a much sought after parking space. Our group of 5 and a baby fit in well and didn't feel like we were on top of each other. We had a great stay and some lovely bbqs we we ate out on the terrace watching the boats. Would return

A very enjoyable holiday despite the December weather. We were impressed by the promptness of Aspects response to a problem with the heating. Always some activity to watch in the harbour - such as a seagull pulling a large starfish out of the water, but then not bothering to eat it. Perhaps they prefer pasties these days. Mick and Lyn

A lovely unique place overlooking the harbour. Loved watching the tides, swans, boats as the harbour always had some activity happening. The property is very well equipped including board games, DVD's, Beach towels if needed, fishing nets and allsorts. Set on 3 levels plenty of space. I only wish I owned Harbour pride myself, I already miss sitting by the windows watching time pass by.

We had a great week at Harbour Pride with our daughter & son in law and their new baby. A lovely week of boat watching and discovering Penzance. Walks to Mousehole, trips to Minnack theatre (fantastic!) and Lands End (disappointingly commercial - we were warned!). The cottage has everything you need - sometimes duplicated! We would do it again!

Location is fantastic, overlooking the harbour with window seats. Supply of beach and bathroom towels was great. Key safe at the property and parking permit made logistics easy. Great walks to Mousehole and Penzance from the doorstep. Very well equipped cottage, with everything we needed. Our 2nd time staying there, and we will be back again.

The cottage was in a lovely setting overlooking the harbour. It was extremely well equipped, with good information on the facilities within the cottage, and information on places to visit. The Aspects staff were on hand to deal with any issues and were a delight to deal with. It all made our stay a real pleasure.

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, ??

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.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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

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!

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.

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.

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

Disappointed with my first booking with Aspects holidays.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear this as we work very hard to try and always offer the best service possible. If we have not delivered the high level of service that we always strive for, we cannot apologise enough. We will be in touch to discuss this further and find out what needs to be improved. 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.

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.

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 !!!!!!

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

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!

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

Reply from Aspects Holidays

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.

Mention cleanliness and ensure this is done!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry if there were areas that did not meet the high standards that we would expect, we can only apologise if any areas had been missed. Having now received this feedback, we will be closely monitoring this, so thank you for your comments. Tanya, Customer Services
