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.

Things to do in Newlyn

Sandy Beach is a cove just past the fish market and other beaches nearby include Tolcarne (below Newlyn Green), Wherrytown, Eastern Green and Long Rock at Penzance, Lamorna Cove and Mousehole. Nearby attractions include Newlyn Art Gallery, The Exchange Gallery, Trengwainton Garden, Trinity House National Lighthouse Centre, Mousehole Bird Hostpital and Sanctuary, Trewidden Garden, Morrab Garden and St Michaels Mount.

You can fly by Skybus from Penzance airport (St Just) to the beautiful Isles of Scillies or take the Scillonian III from the dock at Penzance. Paradise Park is an award-winning attraction at Hayle with tropical birds, otters and a farmyard, and Flambards at Helston is an award winning village theme park.

Coastal walks close to Newlyn's holiday cottages take you past the harbour, Larrigan and Wherry Rocks onto Penzance. Golf courses in the area include Cape Cornwall (Penzance), West Cornwall (Lelant), Tregenna Castle (St Ives), Hayle Golf Range and Mullion Golf Club. Newlyn and the surrounding districts have something for everyone whether its sports, sailing, horse riding, nightlife, eating out or just taking it easy and enjoying the view from your Cornish cottage.

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.

Travel to Newlyn

Newlyn is served by Newquay airport and Penzance is the last stop on the mainline railway in Cornwall and also a National Express Coach Stop. First Group buses operate locally and throughout Cornwall.

Amazing!!!

5 of 5
Beautiful apartment and an equally beautiful view! Also set in the perfect location, with parking at the Train Station really close by. The apartment has everything you need, the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits that are provided on arrival are a lovely touch too! We really cannot wait to come back! Thanks for having us :)

Great location, fantastic views

Lovely self-contained apartment, great views of Mounts Bay (saw dolphins following the fishing boats one morning) Great local fish shops in Newlyn down the road and a really good location for walking the Coastal path. Plus welcoming and friendly hosts.
