  • “A very lovely little place to stay with the most beautiful view.”

    Very comfortable, a home away from home. And the welcome with flowers, biscuits and more was a really nice touch.

The property

You walk to the property via a traffic-free footpath, after leaving your car, parked on the road side or in the Sandy Cove car park nearby with the permit that the owner has provided, and you are greeted at the property with a cute bench where you can enjoy a morning coffee as you look out onto the views of Mount Bay and take in the peacefulness of the area.

You enter the property into an inviting sitting room, where a gas fire adds warmth to room whilst you flick on the Smart TV and settle into the sofa with some popcorn.

About the location


Penzance 1.2 miles; Marazion 6.6 miles; St Ives 8.9 miles.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint town in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all seafaring craft. This Cornish town 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 town, 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.
