Newlyn

£723 - £1764 per week
Book

As calming on the inside as the outside is beautiful, and with plenty of Cornish cottage charm, Lake Cottage is well placed for exploring Newlyn and the nearby traditional Cornish village of Mousehole and historic town of Penzance. This beautiful, detached cottage is full of character offering plenty of living space for families with a cosy sitting room, complete with woodburner, separate dining room and a sunny conservatory which overlooks the garden. With three beautifully appointed, first floor bedrooms, of effortless elegance, wood flooring and attractive soft furnishings, this rustic, romantic cottage is perfect for couples looking for a blissful break away from everyday life, or families who want to make treasured holiday memories that will last a lifetime. From the cottage, you can explore the often-hidden lanes of Newlyn with their cottages, colourful yards and alleyways, getting a little bit lost is part of the fun.

Lake Cottage is set on a quiet road on the outskirts of Newlyn, from here you can spread your wings to the rest of the Peninsula. Lands End is roughly 20 mins by car, so the beaches at Sennen and Porthcurno are easily accessible and Mousehole and Lamorna are also just a short drive away. The coast path leading to Penzance makes for a lovely evening walk. The area has an array of ancient monuments, cosy cafes and stunning views, so take your time to explore. The far west of Cornwall is as wild in winter as it is magical in summer, so with the private garden providing a quiet spot for enjoying some Cornish sunshine, and a cosy wood burner creating a cosy bolt hole during the colder months, Lake Cottage is the peaceful escape you've been longing for at any time of the year.

A very well equipped pretty cottage on the outskirts of Newlyn with a good sized garden ,so great for dogs ,beautiful walks across the fields and down into Mousehole for a dog friendly lunch at The Coastguard.

The walk into Newlyn is easy on the way out but a bit of a hike going back ,we found going up the steps by the Red Lion the easiest way back. We really enjoyed visiting the Art galleries and The Newlyn Filmhouse is wonderful ,

The Jubilee geo thermal pool a treat rain or shine and not to be missed .

October 2023

We had a really lovely stay at Lake Cottage. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather which meant we got a lot of beach time during our fortnight! The cottage was comfortable for our party of 4 (3 adults and 1 child) and the owners have done really well to make the best use of the space available. You could easily get by without a car here, since Newlyn is a very short walk (10 mins) and Penzance and Mousehole are also accessible on foot. It was nice to have a garden and the conservatory was well used! We all enjoyed our stay and the location is good for trips to our favourite parts of Cornwall including the Lizard and Sennen Cove.

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.

Spacious cottage in its own quiet grounds with a good useful outdoor garden. A place of real character. People should be aware of the steep climb to the property and the nearby narrow lanes. A really good base for exploring this part of Cornwall.

We are glad that you enjoyed your time here at the very lovely Lake Cottage. It is in a fantastic location for exploring that very lovely area of Cornwall. Most of the traditional Cornish fishing villages are known for the steep hills and narrow roads that come with such locations, so it is something that is not specific to Lake Cottage, but something to bear in mind when booking any property in such a location. The bookings team are always happy to answer any questions and discuss the suitability of any property before booking, so please do not hesitate to contact us. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a really lovely stay at Lake Cottage. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather which meant we got a lot of beach time during our fortnight! The cottage was comfortable for our party of 4 (3 adults and 1 child) and the owners have done really well to make the best use of the space available. You could easily get by without a car here, since Newlyn is a very short walk (10 mins) and Penzance and Mousehole are also accessible on foot. It was nice to have a garden and the conservatory was well used! We all enjoyed our stay and the location is good for trips to our favourite parts of Cornwall including the Lizard and Sennen Cove.

Beautiful, comfortable and secluded cottage. Lovely and quiet, particularly at night time, but still within easy reach of town and other attractions in the area. The large private garden is an added bonus.

Property was very nice and garden was great for the dog. Kitchen was really well equipped and the lounge, conservatory and dining room were well finished and comfortable. Overall really please with the house.

Parking was a little awkward but we do have a particularly big car, the walk to and from the town was fairly hard work if you needed to do it a couple of times a day, especially for our dog which is a bit older. Shower was a little awkward but appreciate old Cornish buildings don’t often have the ceiling height available.

Overall really pleased with the house

Lake Cottage is a solid, cosy, beautiful cottage in such a peaceful spot, we loved it here. The well-planned layout comfortably accommodated 6 of us with bright and airy living areas and snuggly corners. As with most of Newlyn, any walks involve a steep descent or a challenging incline, but it's always well worth it for stunning views or delicious fish restaurants. Being on the edge of the town, it's great for dog walking across the fields, with the option of continuing down into Mousehole for breakfast or lunch, then hopping on the regular bus back. Our teenagers could happily wander into Penzance from here, or catch the bus around the coast into St. Ives etc. Many surf beaches in the area allow for differing wind directions; Sennen Cove is a 20 minute drive. Parking at the cottage is tight though, so small is best when it comes to taking cars, but it's a small price to pay for the green space that surrounds this cottage. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Lake Cottage is situated in a quiet and peaceful area. Popular destinations such as Penzance, Mousehole, Sennen and Lands End are within easy reach. The cottage was extremely clean and we very much appreciated a lovely welcome pack. Thank you to the owners. Just a note, if you have a larger car, the space between the cottage and opposite wall can be a bit tricky to manoeuvre through to the parking space at the rear. We loved the cottage and hope to return in future. A big thank you to the Aspects team who make booking a holiday so easy.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are sorry that the measurements of the access to the parking were not included on the website. Whilst parking is suitable for medium sized cars unless otherwise stated, we do still try to include measurements as often as possible, so have now added this. Thank you for highlighting that and we are glad to hear how much you liked it there. Tanya, Customer Services

On holiday just me, my 90 year old Mum and two medium sized dogs. Perfectly peaceful location, a complete escape. Tranquility itself, we even caught a deer feeding in our garden. (luckily the dogs were asleep). Plenty of space to relax and sit outside or inside the conservatory. You can feel the sea air, sadly not so easily the sea view. We were lucky just to have one lightly rainy day., we made the most of the conservatory this day. A good base for exploring Cornwall, we went out and about most days, but still found time to make the most of the cottage and garden. Every thing you need is to hand, beautifully decorated and comfortable.

Lake Cottage is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We found the beds very comfortable and the linen and towels were lovely. It's a wonderfully light and spacious cottage.

It's a 10 to 15 minute walk downhill to the harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants so you can leave your car behind if you're having an evening out. Just be aware it's all uphill on the way back.

A great spot for exploring locally and further afield by car, plus it's close to many footpaths and coastal walks.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Aspects Holidays and would definitely book with them again.
