Make a self catering holiday cottage in Newlyn a seafood extravaganza away from home

Newlyn is a fishing town in southwest Cornwall. It is part of the civil parish of Penzance and the largest fishing port in England with more than forty acres of harbour. Newlyn was destroyed alongside Mousehole and Paul in 1595 during the Spanish raid and then rebuilt. Newlyn is well known because Pete Goss set sail from here in the Spirit of Mystery for his five-month epic voyage to Melbourne.

Places to stay in Newlyn

Very little of old Newlyn remains today but it is still a thriving port and popular destination for holidaymakers. Many of the granite cottages that are now used as Cornwall self-catering accommodation were due for demolition, but luckily were saved from this fate by the outbreak of World War11. It is these Cornish cottages which add character to the area and make an charming base for exploring Cornwall.

Although there are many guesthouses and hotels, they do not allow you the same amount of freedom as staying in a Cornwall holiday cottage, especially if you want to get up at dawn and wander the Quays. A good time to stay in Newlyn is over the August Bank Holiday when the Fish Festival is held.

The festival promotes fish landed at the forty-nine harbours, ports and coves around the Cornish coastline. Visitors are able to watch cooking demonstration and enjoy a large selection of seafood. There are children's workshops, fish auctions, arts, crafts and trade stalls, open vessels and a full programme of harbour entertainments and music. This is Cornwall's busiest time of the year and the festival in Newlyn attracts thousands of visitors, so make sure you book your holiday accommodation early.

Weather in Newlyn

Newlyn's climate is mild and it is this that led so many famous painters to the area, as they could sit outside and work and this is also the reason that tropical plants and palm trees thrive.

                                                                                                      This is a very high quality, well furnished and equipped townhouse set over 3 levels with a good view over the bay from the top floor master bedroom. We arrived on a bitterly cold February day and were very pleasantly relieved to find the house toasty warm. After our long journey the bottle of French wine kindly left for us was a lovely additional touch. Mike, the next door housekeeper, is friendly and helpful and keeps the house immaculately clean. The main shopping street (including a supermarket) is a few minutes away along with a good choice of pubs and restaurants. There is a short walk downhill to the front passing by an excellent Indian restaurant where we ate one evening. The 2 bathrooms are very modern and the style of the house is a lovely eclectic blend of french rustic chic and modernity. Although the house is in the centre and of the town it lies in a very quiet location where only the seagulls will occasionally disturb your peace. We loved the little courtyard whch would be perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months. We had a problem one morning trying to turn into the road from the alley as 2 cars had been illegally parked on double yellow lines opposite the exit. I wonder if the council could put some obstuction there to prevent this happening? As we have family in Penzance (the reason for our visit) we will look to rent this house for future visits. Linda was excellent at communicating with us and very helpful.
