    Great stay - only two things -

    Great stay - only two things - I would invest in one of those little trolleys that campers use to move your stuff from the car to the house The bin wasn’t emptied when we were there - I don’t know if it needed to be in a specific place but there were no instructions other than it gets collected Tuesday night Otherwise lovely place really good facilities and best cooking stuff I’ve ever had in a cottage

The property

With breath-taking sea views from three floors across Mounts Bay towards St Michael's Mount and Marazion, sleeping up to six guests, Lookout Cottage is ideal for your next family get-away to the South West Coast of Cornwall.

Resting near the harbour in Newlyn, from this mid-terraced Cottage, you will be in easy reach of Mousehole, Penzance, Marazion, St Ives, the popular beaches of the Lands End Peninsula, and the South West Coastal Path.

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.

You are greeted at the property with a convenient bench where you can enjoy a peaceful and leisurely morning coffee as you look out onto the views across Mount Bay towards St Michaels Mount and extending as far as The Lizard peninsula.

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

Moving through the well thought out cottage, there is a dining room with exposed bricks, adding a traditional feel to the room, as well as a spacious dining table where you can indulge in an evening meal as you plan the next day of your exciting holiday.

Alongside this is the stylish kitchen with the amenities you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday, as well as a handy dishwasher, so rustle up a buffet breakfast, a home-cooked evening meal or prepare a picnic for a day on the beach or a hiking trip.

After a long day, escape upstairs to the king-size bedroom with quality oak furnishings complimenting ideal storage space to unpack all your personal belongings, or choose to rest and rejuvenate in the double room with prints and a wall mirror making a homely space as you embrace in the stunning views over the sea.

Finishing the first floor is a family bathroom, where you can choose to soak in a long bath or grab a quick shower to wash those sandy feet.

Climbing up to the second-floor twin room, with it's exposed beams, sloped ceiling, stunning sea views and sea themed decorations such as blue furnishings.

Outside there is a rear courtyard which is a great spot to enjoy some alfresco dining as the sun goes down, with a bottle of wine open.

Here the owners have provided a washing machine to take care of any holiday washing needs and a washing line where clothes, as well as wetsuits may be hung to dry.

Newlyn surrounds an interesting harbour and peaceful pebble beaches, with it's art galleries, shops, bars, eateries and escape room, it is actually the third largest fishing port in England.

Within a short drive, you can reach the town of Penzance which 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), and the historical battery rocks.

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 and grey seals.

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.

For a fabulous family trip to the south coast of Cornwall, choose Lookout Cottage as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
