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.
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.
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.

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.

Nice comfortable apartment in between Newlyn and Penzance. Supermarkets within walking distance.

Thinking of staying in Cornwall, you won’t go wrong with the Carlton apartments. Lovingly designed by an architect who’s poured his heart and soul into the venture. This comes through in the design and you won’t be disappointed.
Apartments are top notch, well appointed throughout with great amenities including a fab kitchen and shower rooms.
Location is fantastic and make sure you take a look at the in apartment guide. Here you are 15 minutes away from some of the best beaches in the UK.
Mr Devereux Jul 2020
The apartment is brilliantly placed for shopping and coffee in Penzance town, sightseeing in Newlyn, the beach, Lidls, Morrab Gardens, Penlee Gardens and Penlee art gallery/museum and coffee shop. Penzance train station is about a fifteen minute walk away along the sea front past the Lido, but you can get a local taxi really easily to the station and from there you can get to St Ives and Truro for extra days out. There is also a regular bus from Penzance high street which goes to Mousehole, or you can walk it there via Newlyn (fabulous views) and catch the bus back if your legs get tired! The views directly across the road of the everchanging sea were fabulous from the apartment windows and there was everything we needed in there to cook ourselves evening meals and breakfast. We thought the furniture in the rooms were lovely and the beds very comfy, warm and extremely clean with an excellent shower for each bedroom. .
Had a great time and will definitely be booking again!
