Orchard Place is a delightful, former fisherman's cottage located in the old quarter of Newlyn, made famous by the Newlyn School of Art, and gives you access by foot to everything the town has to offer. Choose from two bedrooms in this characteristically Cornish, pet friendly property, which is perfect for friends or families looking for a blissful break away from everyday life. From the cottage, you're free to explore the often hidden lanes of Newlyn with their cottages, colourful yards and alleyways, getting a little bit lost is part of the fun. After a long days adventures, slip into a deep bubble bath in the downstairs bathroom or a few local beers in the rear courtyard.

With plenty of Cornish cottage charm, Orchard Place is perfectly positioned for exploring, The Duke Street Cafe is great for breakfast if you're not in the mood to cook and you're just steps away from great pubs (do try the Crab Soup at the Red Lion), the very popular Tolcarne Inn and Mackerel Sky. 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 (but isn't too challenging). The area has an array of ancient monuments, cosy cafes and stunning views, so take your time to explore. For a great way to see the local area, the cottage near the route for the open top bus (running May to September) that will take you in a circle that includes Lands End and St Ives, making exploration incredibly easy by bus too.

January 2022

Orchard Place is in a great location, quiet area so you can only hear seagulls! Well equipped though a dishwasher would make life easier. Cosy and comfy with good equipment and furnishings. Lots of hot water and great wood burner. Plenty to do and a great base for exploring. The mattress in main bedroom was way too soft for me but that is personal taste as I have a bad back. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Very cosy cottage in the old fishing quarter. Clean and well decorated. Easy walking distance to Penzance and Mousehole. Parking permit included which was a big plus. Lots of nearby eateries. Highly recommended.

Orchard Place is in a great location, quiet area so you can only hear seagulls! Well equipped though a dishwasher would make life easier. Cosy and comfy with good equipment and furnishings. Lots of hot water and great wood burner. Plenty to do and a great base for exploring. The mattress in main bedroom was way too soft for me but that is personal taste as I have a bad back. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely, cosy cottage . Like stepping back in time but with all mod cons ! Car park is busy but always got a spot. A short walk up to the property. Stairs are steepish and care needed when coming down as handrail doesn’t continue to the top . Lovely large bed , soft but so comfy ! Nice selection of places to eat and drink in Newlyn, and approx 30 minutes steady walk into Penzance with all its facilities . Will definitely return.

Comfortable cottage for 4. Spacious bedrooms. Well equipped. A few minutes walk from the centre of Newlyn.

Big bonus is the car park pass. It is a bit tricky to load/unload your vehicle but the cottage is warm, well furnished and comfortable. I will be booking this cottage in the future. I can also confirm it is not suitable for a person with limited mobility due to cobbled paths and hill slope. Some fab food places nearby, Sky Mackeral bar at the crossroads is a must and no pre booking just join the queue. Fab coastal walk to Mousehole (2.5 miles) and along the prom to PZ (1.5 miles) for those who like walking.

We spent a week at Orchard Place with our two teenagers. Although the cottage is small with one bathroom downstairs, the bedrooms are a good size and we never felt cramped. The beds are comfortable, although on the softer side, and the mews is quiet at night so we slept well. WiFi is good and the cottage was well equipped. There is no dishwasher but that didn't worry us for a week, especially as the cottage is so close to many good eateries: book in at the Tolcarne Inn for a superior food experience in an unstuffy setting. We also enjoyed the full Cornish breakfast around the corner at Duke St Café, the fish soup at the Red Lion pub, and even the local fish and chips got top marks.

It's a short walk into Penzance for boat trips, and a longer stroll to Mousehole. The cottage has a small yard and can be a little dark but that's part of its fisherman's cottage, mews character. Aspects were excellent - everything went smoothly and when we discovered a leak in the cafetière, they replaced it the same day. A parking permit came as part of our stay and we never had a problem finding a spot in the nearby harbour car park, even though we visited over the August bank holiday weekend. We loved Newlyn and would return.

We spent a lovely week at Orchard Place, a quaint little cottage. The bedrooms were a lovely size and the beds were really comfy, there were no TV’s in the bedrooms but, we wouldn’t have used them if there were. The kitchen was well equipped which included a washer drier and fridge freezer. There were games and DVD’s in case of rain and we made use of the binoculars supplied. The cottage was in a great location close to the harbour (where we saw a seal) fresh fish shops, local shops and Public houses and a 5 minute walk from the beach. There is a very small decked yard at the rear where you can sit and have a cuppa. We took our 6 month old puppy with us, the beach was close by and was dog friendly. Dogs aren’t allowed upstairs or on the furniture which was fine for us as our puppy was crated at night. The parking is at the harbour and we always had a spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Orchard place was well located for easy access to all of Newlyns amenities & for travelling to surrounding areas. Super king bed was very comfortable & bedrooms nice and spacious if travelling with a baby/children though think this property would be a little bit small for 4 adults. Thanks aspects holidays!

Lovely accommodation. Really well presented and kitted out. Great base for exploring west Cornwall

Excellent cottage with courtyard. Very relaxing with our 8 month old baby. Not ideal for toddlers as there is an open stairs.

Wonderful cosy cottage exceptionally clean had everything you needed for a fantastic stay. Lovely deep bath for a long soak after a few long hikes and the huge bed was so comfortable. Cottage is in a perfect location for all the amenities in Newlyn highly recommended. Aspects holidays are a very good company and kept me informed regularly leading up to my stay including directions and info on Covid issues.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a untouched area of Newlyn! It was almost like going back in time!. The fireplace is great for cosy nights in. The cottage was well equipped and surprisingly spacious, the huge bed is mega comfy and guaranteed us a good night's sleep.
