Let future visitors know that they need to walk along the side of the house to gain entrance. Parking is difficult but you get used to it. We also recommend walking and using the local buses which are reliable and reach most tourist spots. The car is ok when travelling further afield. The location of the apartment is lovely with wonderful views. The facilities are excellent and the basket of treats is a great idea. A lovely place from which to explore West Cornwall.

Found the place a bit hard to find and trying to park the car was difficult maybe some better instructions could have made things easier
“Sea Shimmer is a beautifully apartment with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay.”
We arrived to find a cream tea laid out for us which we ate in the attractive courtyard garden and it was much appreciated to have a pint of milk provided so we could have a lovely cup of Cornish tea straight away. There was also a lovely little hamper full of goodies and fresh flowers in the lounge and kitchen. The bed linen was probably the crispest, cleanest I've ever seen! The only slight criticism I had was that the towels were a bit rough and a bath mat would have been useful. With regard to parking, it is a bit tricky but fortunately my husband is great at going backwards and we didn't have any problems parking our car. The directions we received to find the property were excellent so I don't really know why some people found it hard to find! I would certainly stay at Sea Shimmer again.
“The owners were very welcoming.”
Lots of extra little touches. For example fresh flowers, a cream tea on arrival and other goodies. The view from the lounge was amazing. We were very happy at Seashimmer as it was very comfortable but would have liked an extra towel rail for bath towels and although most of rhe appartment was easily warmed up there was no heating in the kitchen . This is not an issue in the summer but the evenings were quite cold when we were there. Only a small matter as overall we had a great holiday.
“Derek & Carol have a lovely place!”
Clean...cozy... great value and ideally located! Their surprise welcome gift was absolutely lovely and much appreciated. They really made us feel welcome and were there if we needed anything at all. I would highly recommend Sea Shimmer!!!
“Lovely clean spacious apartment, amazing kitchen, lovely welcome pack and beautiful views.”
Handy having a car park space but difficult access (like much of Newlyn).
“The holiday was very enjoyable the holiday property was great but the parking was more difficulty than we expected, look forward to our next visit in Cornwall.”

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. 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.
Note: Parking suitable for medium size vehicle only with reversing uphil required for access.
