The Experience

This cosy 18th-century cottage is set in a cobbled lane in a conservation area. Simon and Penny are enthusiastic and hands-on hosts who live ten minutes away and will come to meet you.

There’s space to spread out inside, with two reception rooms and a suntrap of a courtyard with a table and chairs and a barbecue – it isn’t overlooked so you’ll feel nicely private. Penny leaves a bottle of wine, a cream tea and all the kitchen basics, and there are plenty of games and books for rainy days.

Stroll to the harbour to buy fresh fish for supper or to Jelberts for superb vanilla ice-cream. Good restaurants and a pub are within a five-minute walk, and you can walk to both Mousehole and Penzance along the coastal path or drive in five minutes.

Reviews

This is a lovely cottage just a minute from the Quay and the amazing fishing fleet and market. It is a real home from home, very cozy with all the amenities you would ever need. This was our first trip to Newlyn which we found gave us a taste of the Real Cornwall and the fishing industry. We stayed for just one week. It is also a great base to visit Mousehole, St Ives, Marazion and many lovely beaches. I cannot rate this highly enough and we will definitely return.

A fabulous cottage in an up and coming area close to wonderful restaurants, beaches and harbours. The cottage is charming, perfectly equipped and the owners couldn't be more helpful. Fantastic nearby pubs, cafes and restaurants meant no need to cook apart from sampling the local fresh catch from the fresh fish shops on our doorstep. We had wonderful trips to Mousehole, Sennen for surfing, St Ives for beach and Tate, Portcurno for beach and Minack theatre, Jubilee Pool in Penzance and the great Newlyn Filmhouse. A great holiday all round, using public transport and no need for a car.

Thank you Penny and Simon, a superbly equipped cottage. We have had at least 20 years of self-catering and this is a cottage where you have thought of everything for a trouble-free stay. Our favourite thing was to wander around the fish quay especially in the evening watching boats come in and unload. And many thanks for the wine and yummy scones, jam and cream.

From the outside, this looks like a really pretty traditional cottage and this is borne out as you go inside but it feels a lot bigger and lighter than you might expect. A grade 2 listed cottage right in the heart of the fishing port of Newlyn it is comfy and modernised. With a beautiful private courtyard to the rear, this is a great place to stay in the summer or the winter.

Location

The neighbourhood

The cottage is in the centre of Newlyn, which has long been a draw for artists. You can easily stroll to good restaurants – Mackerel Sky Seafood Bar, The Tolcarne Inn, The Fisherman's Arms and The Red Lion are all within five minutes’ walk – as well as a small supermarket, a cinema (with a restaurant) and a number of art galleries and boutiques. You'll find Portuguese and Italian restaurants too.

Local points of interest from Penny Rumble

  • Fishing lies at the heart of Newlyn's history. Explore the harbour, fish market and all the fish shops. Cast your rod from the pier or hire a boat for a trip in the Bay. Alternatively you can sample the fish in the many local restaurants.
  • Newlyn inspired a whole new art movement in the 19th century. Enjoy the numerous galleries in the area or even try at course at the art school. Alternatively drop in to my studio and we can talk 'art' over a cup of tea.
  • Newlyn sits right on the edge of the Cornish Coastal path. Step out of your door and head east or west, the views in the bay are sublime.
  • Visit the pretty town of Mousehole, or promenade along the front to Penzance. The iconic St Michael's Mount off Marazion is a must.
  • Wild swimmers can enjoy the relative safety of Mount's Bay bay. Penny is a passionate wild swimmer so do contact her for information regarding secret, safe places for a magical swim.
  • The glorious surf beaches of far west Cornwall are only a short drive away. Try Sennen and Gwynver for serious surfing or Porthcurno for the family. Talking of Porthcurno - a trip to the Minack theatre is always fun.
