    Directly opposite the Newlyn Art Gallery and with a stunning view of Mounts Bay and St Michaels Mount, it had every comfort one could possibly need while on holiday. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was very well stocked, the sitting room was very comfortable and cosy. The mermaid and sea scape paintings and other quirky artefacts added to the charm of this property. Two things, however, let it down. The lack of WiFi, which in this day and age is odd as most places offer this as a basic necessity. We tried the art gallery password (which I think is a bit cheeky) but it didn’t work I’m afraid. So my sister and I had to use our mobiles which proved expensive. This really does need addressing I think. Also, the property could really do with a lick of pain to brighten the place up. Especially the stairs and hallway where the dark wood detracts from the seaside theme, and that is a great shame. Other than that, we had a fabulous holiday at Mermaid Cottage and we wouldn’t hesitate in coming back. Thank you.

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.
