Hopelessly in love with Cornwall

Lenn Thirion purchased this house in 2016

Why Lenn Thirion chose Newlyn

Always wanted a home with a in the unspoilt non touristy Newlyn Harbour Village, far from the madding crowd yet close enough to shops/ cinema/ art galleries/ restaurants/ cafes and coffeeshops if you need them. No traffic noise, only the sound of the sea. And did I mention the incredible views?!! No car walk or cycle everywhere....

What makes this house unique

Peace! Tranquility! Fresh daily seafood! Free parking!

Wonderful stay in Newlyn!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lenn's house for a week in September 2017. It has been recently re-done and is very nicely appointed throughout, with new furniture and appliances. Beds are very comfortable. There's a large television and great Wifi. Pubs and groceries are close by and convenient. But the most awesome thing about the house is the spectacular sea view. Highly recommended.
