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.

Cosy cottage overlooking Mousehole Harbour

5 of 5
Very cost little cottage ideal for 2 people with great views out over the bay towards St Michaels Mount. Ideal base for exploring South West Cornwall. On arrival we received a warm welcome from David and Christine and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Just lovely!

5 of 5
My partner and I were thoroughly impressed. Janet left us some lovely treats in the house which was a great touch, and the apartment itself was clean and tidy with all the mod cons. The location is excellent as well; the views straight onto the sea and St Michael’s Mount were wonderful. Parking was good and it was generally very quiet and relaxing which is exactly what we wanted. I have already recommended this place to my friends and family and would definitely go again. I really can’t say enough good things about it. There’s nothing I can think of that would improve the property at all. Thank you very much!
