The Pottery is an elegantly converted cottage, tucked away down a private lane. The large private outside space and granite-paved patio tempt guests to spend the whole day here. Relax in this tranquil setting, with the burble of the nearby brook, and the owls seen and heard at dusk. The cottage is near Penzance and Newlyn, well positioned to explore the fabulous scenery of west Cornwall, Lands End, Cape Cornwall, Sennen Cove, Mousehole, and the Minack Theatre is only a short drive away.

The greenhouse is maintained throughout and available to use as a further suntrap or mini conservatory - so one can sit in and enjoy the garden even if the wind is chilly.
The cottage has a light and airy feel, yet on a cold winter night the wood burner will definitely help engender a cosier mood. There is a flat screen TV. Newlyn is a 3 minute drive, with its range of shops, pubs and restaurants. One can access three food stores, post office, two coffee shops, fishmongers, a specialist cheese chop, an art gallery, flower shop, among a few others.
Only 2 min further is Penzance with St Michael's Mount and a further array of small independent shops plus on the outside of town three of the bigger supermarkets.

Buryas Bridge is a small hamlet between Penzance and Lands End, close to Newlyn & Mousehole. The Pottery is just off the A30, but by this stage the A30 is a generally quiet A road! Newlyn is a working fishing port and towards the end of August hosts the Newlyn Fish festival where you can buy a huge variety of fish, that will rarely be fresher, watch cooking demonstrations or even the lugger rowing race, more details can be found at http://www.whatsoncornwall.co.uk/community/newlyn-fish-festival.
Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End, that has retained much of its old world charm. The narrow streets are filled with galleries, small shops and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, cluster together around the inner edge of the harbour, these are protected from the force of the sea by two robust breakwaters. Car parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village. The tiny village was overcome by the loss of the Penlee lifeboat, the Solomon Brown, just before Christmas 1981. Most of the crew was from Mousehole. On the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy, the Christmas Lights are turned off for one hour as a mark of respect for the crew who died whilst trying to rescue those on the Union Star off Lamorna.
The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village’s unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.
Penzance is just a 10 minute drive away. Every June, Penzance holds the Golowan (Feast of St John) & Mazey Day celebrations. This week long celebration attracts many visitors and traffic is banished from the centre of Penzance during Mazey Day when the streets become lined with stalls and hold colourful processions. From Penzance harbour you can catch a ferry to the Isles of Scilly. The sub tropical gardens of Morrab are definitely worth visiting.
St Ives (Cornish: Porth Ia) lies north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. In former times it was commercially dependent on fishing but has become renowned for its number of artists. The Tate St Ives exhibits work by modern British artists, including work of the St Ives School. The three storey building lies on the site of an old gas works, overlooking Porthmeor Beach. The Tate also manages the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. The St Ives September Festival, runs annually and is one of the longest running and widest ranging Festivals of the Arts in the UK. It last 15 days and includes a range of arts from music to poetry, film, talks and books. St Ives harbour is still a working port where you can watch the local fishermen landing their daily fresh catches of locally caught seafood. It is very sheltered and a perfect sun-trap in the heart of the town. Porthmeor beach has fine golden sand and is a wonderful beach for surfing with a surf school. During the summer trained lifeguards ensure the bathing is as safe as possible. There are restaurant and cafe facilities right on the beach with toilets and beach huts on the terrace behind.
Guest from Chard stayed for 4 nights.
The cottage was a wonderful find in a really quite spot, but still only moments from all the conveniences and activities you could want. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and great to cook in. On the whole it was an excellent place for a getaway for two.
Guest from Berkeley stayed for 4 nights.
Lovely setting the perfect location for exploring Cornwal and the south west coastal path.The cottage was cosy and comfortable, the wood burner was a great feature.
Guest from Oxford stayed for 4 nights.

Guest from Dudley stayed for 4 nights.
Beautiful cottage in a lovely secluded location. Excellent base for travelling around Western Cornwall. Facilities were in perfect condition and as described. We will definitely stay at the cottage again.
Guest from Indooroopilly, Qld stayed for 7 nights.
A lovely secluded cottage, very quiet but close enough to Penzance if you need anything. Very nice sitting/dining/kitchen area with high ceiling gives a lovely open feel. An easy short drive to all the lovely coves and villages around Lands End. Would have been handy if a dish rack was provided to help dry dishes after washing.
Guest from West Drayton stayed for 7 nights.
My second stay at The Pottery went well. It is a comfortable detached building suitable for two with a location close to Penzance. I don't have any complaints at all. There is a small television in the lounge but nothing in the bedroom which some might expect these days but as there is wi-fi available I was able to watch programmes on my tablet. Anyway, Cornwall is a beautiful place and visitors should be out and about whenever possible - not watching T.V. There is an excellent wet room facility, but once used, if you need to use the toilet located in the same room, you do have to remember that the floor will still be wet. That's about it - I would stay again.
Guest from Dorsten stayed for 7 nights.
Leaves almost nothing to be desired. You need to bring along nothing but your personal belongings except for bathing towels, tea towels.and a hair dryer. Well situated although you have to be careful when you join the main road.Quiet, romantic place, Wonderful terrace and garden furniture. Excellent for two people.Note: The bathroom requires some skillfulness with a shower without a curtain.
Guest from Pontefract stayed for 7 nights.
Owners friendly and helpful but not over bearing. Cottage lovely in quiet tranquil setting. Shopping 5 to 10 mins away. We really enjoyed our holiday .
Guest from Stoke On Trent stayed for 7 nights.
Had a fab week staying here, the cottage is nicely hidden away down a private road but is nicely placed to access the surrounding places of interest. It's great for a couple or small family. The bathroom isn't the biggest and the floor is very wet after showers but it's fine, the rest of the cottage is fab especially outside
Guest from Ripon stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed at the pottery for 1 week and it was very sad to leave. Fantastic place lovely cottage. Would deffinately stay again in the future! We also took our dogs with us and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay also. Thankyou to the pottery!
Guest from Westcliff-on-sea stayed for 7 nights.
From the moment we turned into the lane leading to the cottage we knew this was the sort of place we had hoped to find - quiet (just 6 widely spaced houses on a rarely used no through road), wooded (but every house, including our cottage, had a beautiful garden). Just along the lane was a stream with a small bridge for a short stroll accompanied by the sound of owls every evening etc etc The cottage was perfect in every way - we enjoyed the comforts of indoors and the pleasure of relaxing in the courtyard on the loungers (we had sunshine every day - who says it always rains in Cornwall?). We didn't take advantage of the barbecue and didn't need the shelter of the large open sided seating area or the greenhouse but appreciated these being available for guests if the weather had been bad. We could imagine that in cooler weather it would have been cosy to light the wood burner as wood and matches had been provided. We enjoyed the free range eggs we bought from the house along the lane. The paved parking area for the car was spacious. The owners were lovely - making sure we were happy with everything but at the same time respecting our privacy. They had provided excellent information about the cottage and the area in a professionally presented booklet which was really helpful plus lots of leaflets. We found so many places to visit within a 10 mile radius of the cottage that we spent very little time travelling. Highlights for us, Penlee House art gallery and museum in Penzance, Trengwainton Garden, St. Michael's Mount, Levant Mine and Beam Engine, the coastal path and coves between Mousehole and Porthcurno, the excellent cream teas at Trewithen Garden just a mile from the cottage and the vineyard tour and the winetasting at Polgoon just two and a half miles away.
Guest from Bristol stayed for 7 nights.
Despite the adverse early March weather, the Pottery offered a wonderful sanctuary so close to Penzance and access to the Penwith peninsula. This is a delightful cottage enhanced by its natural surroundings. The kindness of our hosts added to the occasion and we would not hesitate to return or to recommend this venue to others.
Guest from Clevedon stayed for 4 nights.
The cottage was exactly what we hoped for & matched up to the photo's & video we had seen, everything we had required & asked for was ready & waiting with a friendly greeting from the owners, we were made most welcome & thoroughly enjoyed our stay not wanting to leave, the one thing that would have made the stay perfect would be an enclosed area for our two well behaved dogs which would have made the stay totally relaxing as a dog friendly cottage, which is the main reason we booked the cottage, I would suggest the area from the French window's /doors to the piggery barbeque area this would be relatively easy to do with minimal expense or maybe the front lawn area to the left of the stable front door. Just so the dogs don't have to be leased all the time ! a real home from home, I am sure all dog lovers would appreciate just a little comfort for their dog providing the dog is not left unattended. Otherwise our stay was near perfect.
Guest from Daventry stayed for 7 nights.
The Pottery was perfectly clean and comfortable, with everything we needed for our stay. The owners were welcoming and friendly, and it was good to know they were near by if we needed any advice. Wi-fi being available was an added bonus which we didn't expect. Although the bedroom was small, it was well planned to make good use of the available space, and the open plan living area was very spacious. There was also plenty of outdoor space available, with an under cover seating/barbecue area and beautifully kept gardens. Being so close to the A30 makes the property very easily accessible. Many stunning locations are situated within an easy drive of the Pottery. We visited St. Michael's Mount, Mousehole, St. Ives, Lands End and the Minack Theatre. We also walked many miles of the South West Coast Path, and found some amazing beaches where the dog could run free in the surf and on beautiful sand. The empty beach at Porth Chapel, st. Levan, was our favourite. This was about a mile west of the Minack Theatre along the coast path, and involved a very steep climb down the rocks, but your efforts are well rewarded by this amazing little beach. Dogs are allowed here all year round.
Guest from West Drayton stayed for 7 nights.
We greatly enjoyed our recent break at the Potteries. We found it ideally placed for our needs as we wanted to be near the towns of Newlyn & Penzance. The cottage was clean and well presented and we had no complaints at all. The owners who lived in a house alongside the Pottery were friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. We would love to stay there again and would recommend it to any couple looking to stay in this area.
Guest from Mansfield stayed for 7 nights.
A wonderfully tranquil retreat amid the buzz of peak season Cornwall, hear the gurgle of the brook at nightime outside the bedroom window or enjoy the hosts lush gardens. I personally feel that this place offers good value when compared to other self catering cottages. Walking is limited, however the cottage is fantastically situated within striking distance of some of the most interesting areas of Cornwall including the SouthWest coastal path. Yes I've stayed in larger bedrooms but all is comfortable and clean and the living room is really lovely. We had a great time here - recommended by a grumpy old man who is notoriously difficult to please.
Guest from Brussels stayed for 14 nights.
We were really disappointed when we arrived at the Pottery. We expected much more comfort and space, as well as a better situation for the price we had paid. It is utterly dangerous to leave the place on foot, as you have to walk along the main road A30, where there is no footpath ! The place is unreachable on foot and you have to use your car all the time.The nearest shops are 2 miles away.The bedroom is really tiny, and very dark, and the bathroom is also very small and consequently we you have a shower, all the floor is wet ! Nevertheless, the owners tried to do their best to make us comfortable. We feel we have been robbed ! This is TOO EXPENSIVE for what it is !!
We always listen to our visitors' responses, and we wish to add additional touches that make anyone's Cornish retreat a real pleasure. Most visitors are extremely pleased with the Pottery, and some guests describe their stay here as a visit to paradise, (see previous week stay). Whether it is the spacious outside covered BBQ area or the private, quiet gardens, the appeals of the place have been mentioned in more than one review. We are sorry that there was an occasion when a stay was not enjoyable and value was not perceived. We only hope that the description on this site truly represents our location, comforts offered, shop availability - 1 mile, local area attractions. For a wonderful holiday we do recommend that a little advance research is needed. We have left our own booklet and other leaflets as well, as further source of information. We are not located in Penzance, but in a hamlet 1 mile outside. We do not boast a huge bedroom as the pictures taken will indicate. We can answer questions prior to a booking is made to avoid anyone forming wrong expectations. But most importantly we do recommend visitors plan their activities for cloudy and windy days to keep boredom away.
Guest from Stavenhagen stayed for 7 nights.
Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Das Cottage ist liebevoll eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts. Wir wurden mit allen nötigen Informationen versorgt.
Guest from Egham stayed for 7 nights.
We had a lovely time at the Pottery but we were very disappointed that the garden was not enclosed as we took our dogs with us. The cottage was comfortable but it would be better if there were curtains on throughout the living area and the television does not work on any BBC channel which was a major problem as it was the weekend of the British Grand Prix!
Guest from Melton Mowbray stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Sheffield stayed for 7 nights.
We have just spent a delightful week at this cottage. It was just as described and what we had hoped for. A quiet, comfortable retreat. We were fortunate to have good weather but I am sure the wood burner would have made it very snug. We would definitely book again.
Guest from Minehead stayed for 7 nights.

First time staying in a cottage and we were very happy with the accommodation, location and service. Quiet setting but within easy access to the A30 and all the beautiful beaches, towns and walks.
Guest from Southampton stayed for 3 nights.
We had an amazing few days at the Pottery it was ideally situated for what we wanted, the owners are very friendly and welcoming. The cottage is comfortable and kept up to a high standard and the log burner is an added bonus. Overall highly recommended and we will be going back?
Guest from London stayed for 4 nights.
We stayed at the Pottery for four nights over new year. The location is great - just off the A30 but completely quiet. We really liked the cottage itself, especially the wood burning stove and the high ceilings in the lounge. The kitchen is nice, though it would have benefited from a few more plates and glasses and some better cutlery and cooking pans etc. The outdoor space was amazing - we were able to have a glass of wine outside in the heated patio space - not bad for January in the UK! The owners were very friendly and came to check that all was ok at the start and to make sure we had a nice time at the end. A very relaxing holiday.
Guest from Bristol stayed for 7 nights.
Had a wonderful week at the pottery. The weather was amazing for December lots of walks on the local beaches with our dog. The pottery was all we could wish for nice and warm and comfortable after days out. We would recommend the pottery as a great base to explore the area.
Guest from Pennington, Lymington stayed for 7 nights.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pottery over the Christmas period, which was in an ideal base to visit the area. The Pottery offered good facilities,comfortable and clean, Thank you for little extras, such as the hamper. we would love to return.
Guest from Coventry stayed for 7 nights.
We found the "Pottery" to be very warm, comfortable and well fitted and in a very good location for exploring the Lands End Peninsular. We will probably return next spring as there are plenty of coastal walks in the vicinity.
Guest from London stayed for 7 nights.
Great place to stay and relax and unwind. Peaceful,tranquil and quiet. Hosts were very helpful. Location was very convenient for exploring the surrounding areas.
Guest from Barnsley stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage is just off the main A30, but seems utterly rural. It is small, but contains everything that you need. Perhaps the only qualification to that would be to say that more cooking dishes would have been helpful. However that was a detail. Our hosts were extremely helpful. Indeed, when we said we wanted to invite my sister and her husband for a barbecue, our host took particular care to check that the barbecue was working well and provided extra tools for it. When we had an accident with our car, they were quick to offer to take us wherever we needed to go. In the event it was not necessary, but we appreciated their care. We had with us a boisterous dog, and found that walking him was not ideal, since there was no off road walking in the immediate area of the cottage, but since the cottage is not far from the Coastal Path, that was not a major problem. All in all we would recommend the cottage as a base from which to explore West Cornwall
Guest from Hofheim stayed for 7 nights.
The Pottery is tucked away in a leafy lane several hundreds yards away from the main road, so it's serene and quiet. The rooms are cosy and comfortable but thats not all. It comes along with a nice patio and and a roofed sitting place with a gas barbecue, electrical heaters and lighting. So there was really nothing to complain and we enjoyed our stay right from the beginning to the end. When we needed advice the friendly landlords were most obliging. We will contemplate on spending our holidays at the Pottery again. Claudia Nothstein, Armin Kraft

We loved our stay at the pottery. Amazing place in a brilliant location. The grounds around the pottery make it such a quiet and relaxing place to be. Would really recommend for a fully relaxing getaway. Hopefully be back soon.
Guest from Mansfield stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful location, but close to facilities. Our hosts were friendly, but unobtrusive. It was a lovely, relaxing stay and we would go back.
Guest from Kerken stayed for 14 nights.
We really enjoyed staying at The Pottery! The house is modern and well equipped, the owners are very polite and helpful. The location is very calm and peaceful. Additional the BBQ and BBQ area are great! The only point is that the kitchen could have been slightly better equipped (some additional cutlery, some bigger pots, pans and dishes would have been perfect) but this is just a minor impression. All in all we spent a wonderful time there and would definetely book the same location again!
Guest from Birmingham stayed for 7 nights.
very helpful and friendly owners ,cottage was very well equipped and comfortable ,set in lovely garden and patio.the only drawback was a very hard bed,however some people might prefer that .Excellent value .
