-Wonderful visit to Newlyn

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations and location of this property is wonderful. We are foodies, and enjoyed the fresh seafood and specialty shops in Newlyn. So much is within walking distance, even a walk to Mousehole along the coast was great for us. Wonderful way to experience a part of the UK without feeling the "tourist crowds" Loved the view of the harbor.

Beautiful location with thoughtful attention to detail

  • 4 of 5

Generally a clean and well appointed property. The shower fitting itself is a little tired and in need of a good clean (recently been retiled though so not a problem!) but the bedrooms are bright and comfortable. Downstairs, the sitting area and kitchen have everything you could need, there’s even a sun hat hanging up in case you’re in need. We had a really enjoyable stay and would recommend this property. Fantastic views and location. There is plenty to explore around and about.

Misrepresented cottage

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at this property for 16 hours having booked it for 1 week in summer. There were issues with damp, cleanliness and safety which I won't go into detail as people don't read reviews that are too lengthy but we did take photos.The owner has apparently addressed these problems but has not shown any compromise in giving any financial recompense other that a few days at the cottage out of season for a weekend that is a 850 mile round trip for us. Unreasonable in anyone's terms.We withheld the review pending an agreement but she has now seen fit to give us a bad guest review which is totally unsubstantiated . At least we can feel confident that any further action we take is honest, truthful and transparent.

Owner's Response: What a shame people have to behave in such a dishonourable way, at least Diane you have honoured your threats of writing us a bad review. We are a family run holiday home and we work extremely hard to share out lovely cottage with guests and our feedback this year for 22 weeks of holiday makers show satisfied guests who have enjoyed our cottage. As we have explained being judgemental, making long lists of criticisms, taking photos of underneath cupboards and collecting information from neighbours to make false allegations is not the way most holiday makers behave, particularly when the sun is shining and there's glorious views and beaches to enjoy.

Car: recommended

Newlyn is an ideal location to explore the heritage of England's largest working fishing port. From the bustling daily fish market to the Fish Festival celebrations in August. Visitors can stroll along the quay, sample fresh fish, hire a day boat or find a quiet spot to fish. A stroll through the maze of streets & cobbled court yards, leads you to local shops, restaurants & friendly pubs. Renowned for its Newlyn School of Painters & the Newlyn Art Gallery, today many artists live & work in the area. Newlyn is an ideal base for touring the spectacular scenery & ever changing landscape of the West Cornish peninsula. Stunning cliff top walks, sandy beaches & coves, offers good surfing. The lively summer season at the Minack Theatre (Porthcurno), the Tate Gallery, Barbara Hepworth’s house & Bernard Leach’s pottery (St Ives), local Cornish gardens like Trewidden, Trevarno & the popular Eden Project. From Penzance a day trip to the beautiful Isles of Scilly can be taken by sea or helicopter.

Other Activities: Horse riding
