The property

Port Cottage is a very charming grade II listed fisherman's cottage situated in the heart of Newlyn, just paces from the sea and medieval harbour which is home to one of the UK's largest fishing fleets.


The buzzing seafaring harbour town of Newlyn is a popular spot with museum and art and craft shops and galleries exhibiting local and international artists work. Bag the 'catch of the day' supper from the fresh fish market or eat in one of the many restaurants and traditional pubs serving fresh local produce. Penzance is less than two miles away with seascape promenade and open air Jubilee Swimming Pool, with the mainline train station if you opt to leave the car at home! Mounts Bay boasts superb rambling and cliff top opportunities! Travel past Penzance to Marazions large stretch of beach with iconic St Michaels Mount, This castle topped landmark attraction can be reached across the knobbly causeway at low tide, or by ferry boat at high water, with the promise of a quayside cream tea! Popular for boating and sailing, Marazion is a famed water playground. Mousehole is very charming with sheltered beach, inns and restaurants, plus the dazzling Christmas Light festival! Pedn Vounder Beach and Porthcurno rank among Cornwall's best for golden sand and beautiful blue seas. The hot spot resort of St Ives is reached within a 30 minute drive.


Port Cottage is nestled along a charismatic almost traffic-free narrow lane amidst white washed and stone faced granite cottages. Comfortably furnished, it showcases many character features including a Rayburn in the kitchen, beamed ceilings and exposed granite walls. The cosy sitting room with flame stove makes a divine space to return to after invigorating coastal walks along scenic shores and there are two attractive bedrooms and a shower room (accessed via the double bedroom) on the first floor.

About the location

PENZANCE

St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
