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.

Good quiet location, close to the coastal path and convenient for shops & bus routes. Beautiful showers, bath, towels & linen. Quirky and spacious with wonderful views.

Quirky and well located Cottage with fantastic views from the top floor.

High Mountains is a lovely spacious house, tucked up in quiet Boase Street in Newlyn whilst being close enough to walk down in to Newlyn for good food and to see the harbour. Absolutely stunning views, particularly from the top bedroom and the little terrace up there. A beautiful relaxing spot.

We had a lovely stay, thank you. The views from the top bedroom were fabulous and the house is conveniently situated for local facilities and the Red Lion. Good facilities particularly the 3 bathrooms. We parked in St Peters and then walked or took the bus to Mousehole, Penzance and Marazion. Recommended.

We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. Spotlessly clean and welcoming. The views of the harbour and sunrise from the front bedrooms were just great. Convenient base to explore all the lovely villages in this part of Cornwall. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again, thank you.

We had the most wonderful stay at High Mountains. It was the perfect place for a short break. Thoroughly impressed with how well equipped the property was, very cosy and homely. Location was lovely and easy to access other areas of South Cornwall. I would certainly recommend booking through Aspect Holidays and staying at this property.

Wonderful location in the quiet fishing village. The Simplicity of the decor and the well equipped kitchen and the great view from the top bedroom. Could not recommend this more. We will definitely return again.

We all had a lovely ,relaxing ,enjoyable stay in a beautiful cottage with a great view of the harbour. The accommodation was clean and well stocked with everything to ensure our stay there was comfortable. Booking was easy and we were supplied with all the information we needed before we arrived and once we were in the cottage.

The house is beautiful and is in a gorgeous location right by the harbour. It is a nice walk along the sea to Penzance where you can get the train. Would 100% recommend staying here for a lovely trip in Cornwall.

It is possible to walk into Penzance and Mousehole - both great places to visit. On the bus route as well so not always necessary to take the car every day. Lovely cottage and plenty of room for six people - would recommend to friends and family as a great place to stay.

This cottage has everything. Location, style, comfort, amenities. Near to shops.

Great get away in the heart of Newlyn. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Do yourself a favour and try it......only not when we want to come back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at High Mountains. With the centre of Newlyn or short walk away and Mousehole down the road the location provided for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The cottage was found to be well equipped, bright and airy. With plenty of room for all the family. Waking up to the sunrises over the harbour are a delight.
