Beautifully situated directly overlooking the famous Newlyn harbour and the stunning Mounts Bay, this historic end terraced cottage exudes character throughout.
After parking right opposite the cottage in your reserved private space (a rarity in Newlyn) you enter the cottage where you will immediately appreciate the homely and spacious feel.
The large living room is decorated with an eclectic mix of nautical and fishing mementos as well as prints of bygone times for which Newlyn has long been associated.
The multi fuel stove adds to the character of this charming cottage and provides warmth for those cooler evenings after a breathtaking walk along the coast.
On the first floor the sitting room is dominated by the far reaching sea views that stretch across the harbour and Mounts Bay in the distance.
It would be easy to while away many hours here simply gazing out to sea, where you may be luck enough to spot the harbour's resident seal 'Bert' or even a pod of dolphins which often swim across the bay.
There are three bedrooms all of which benefit from en suite facilities.
Typical of this style and age of cottage there is no garden, however right next door is a small public green area with benches overlooking the harbour.
Why not rise early to see the sun dawning and watch the catch being landed on the harbour before heading to the market.
You can follow this by trying your hand at fishing or crabbing on the Old Quay in front of the cottage.
Crabbing lines are provided by the owner along with all the tips and information you will need.
The Mousehole to Marazion cycle and walking path hugs the coastline of Mounts Bay passing right in front of the cottage with mousehle a beautiful coastal 20 minute stroll.

About the location
Penzance 1 mile.
Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint village in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all sea baring craft. It is unusual in that visitors can still watch the landing and auctioning of fish at the market, as many families have for centuries before. This Cornish village is clustered around the harbour, with its historic 800 year old quay (the Mayflower actually left for America from this quay, not Plymouth) curling around a few small boats on the western side. Famous for the Newlyn school of Art and Newlyn Copper, the Cornwall Coastal Path passes through the village, as does the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along both, with basking sharks, dolphins and grey seals often seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing, and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport as well as surf fishing for sea bass. Mounts Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.
