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.

Her attention to detail is tremendous! When we arrived, there was fresh milk in the fridge, eggs, fresh bread, cereal and fruit plus tea and (very good) coffee waiting for us! The apartment is exactly as described, spotlessly clean with a lovely new bathroom and a fantastic view of Newlyn harbour. The apartment is on the top floor but has it's own entrance at the same level as the parking at the back, so there is no clambering up and down flights of stairs with your bags (but keep an eye open for the low doorway!) We had a very enjoyable 5 days in the apartment and would have loved to stay for longer! Would happily recommend Ali and her excellent apartment to anyone!!

Simon was quick to respond during the booking process and the house lived up to our expectations. Clean, comfortable and fully equipped it really was a home from home. The views from the decking are amazing - how lovely to wake up, get a cup of coffee and watch the changing sea.. Beautiful even on overcast days. The house was a great base from which to explore Cornwall - our first visit, but won't be our last!
