    “There were no recycling bags or boxes provided.”

    This necessitated us putting in other residents’ boxes and bags. Apart from that a cracking house in a superb location. All the neighbours are local so you are in true Cornwall.

Nearby Penzance has a magnetic harbour as well as eateries with sea views, bars, art galleries, a bustling promenade, UK’s largest outdoor seawater art-deco style lido and geothermally heated pool (Jubilee Pool).

Whilst most of the south Cornish coast is within driving distance, just a short drive away is the town of Marazion, which is a popular spot for surfing and other water sports, as well as boat rides out to St Michael's Mount when the tide is out, or wait until the tide is in and take the cobbled causeway walk as you enjoy picturesque views of the medieval castle, a “House of the Dragon” filming location.

For those looking for a more action-packed time away, take a walk along the South West Coast Path or cycle the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path, where you can see a wealth of wildlife and flora, including basking sharks, dolphins, grey seals, even humpback whales and blue fin tuna have been spotted in recent times!

For a fabulous holiday on the South West Peninsula of Cornwall, choose Lookout Cottage as your base.

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.
