Property Location

Newlyn is Cornwall's largest commercial fishing port and there is no better place to purchase the freshest fish, the port is always a buzz of activity and also home to the RNLI's Penlee Lifeboat. The narrow streets have a selection of pubs and restaurants, Tolcarne Beach lies just outside the harbour and is largely pebble but does have some sandy spots.

Penzance is just a 5 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. Further east lies Mounts bay with constant views of the iconic St Michael’s Mount, the countryside surrounding the bay offers a varied landscape of low hills and sandy beaches. Scattered along the bay are the communities of Mousehole, Newlyn, Penzance and Marazion, each offering something a little different.

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. Parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village, or in the quay car parks. The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. They are tuned off for one hour on the 19th December on the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy. Mousehole is famed for the lantern parade on Tom Bawcock's Eve held on 23rd December. The children’s book, The Mousehole Cat by Antonia Barber, and the television production of the same name, were inspired by the tale of Tom Bawcock and Mousehole’s own traditional dish of Stargazy Pie. Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. Boat tours of the coast from the harbour are available. A few hundred yards along 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, or past Lamorna to the Tater Du lighthouse. Inland is the lovely village of Paul and beyond it lie several stone circles and megalithic sites.

The beautiful town of Marazion, set on the shores of Mount's Bay, has for long been a hot favourite for tourism in West Cornwall. Its clean, sandy beaches, with stunning views toward the Lizard Peninsula and Land's End, have established Marazion as the most wonderful destination for beach holidays in Cornwall. Marazion is also a popular destination for windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing. A number of major sporting events in these fields are held on Marazion's beaches. Marazion is perhaps more widely famed as being the gateway to the enchanting Saint Michael's Mount, the jewel in Cornwall's crown. Saint Michael's Mount is accessed by a causeway, once walked by pilgrims in honour of the alleged appearance of Saint Michael, which is revealed at low tide. At other times visitors are ferried from Marazion to the Mount in small boats. Mount's Bay is renowned as one of the most beautiful bays in the world and provides a safe seaside environment for swimming.

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.

Lovely fisherman’s cottage with all modern comforts
Reviewed on 30/06/2021

We loved Puffin Cottage, it was spotless and everything provided was hotel standards. Immaculate bedsheets and lovely soft towels. The kitchen was well equipped and the living/dining area very comfy. Newlyn is a working fishing village so not as picturesque as other spots in Cornwall but with a lot of characters and some excellent fishmongers.

Perfect cottage as a base to explore Cornwall
Reviewed on 23/06/2021

We had a lovely time in Puffin cottage, which was perfectly suited to our needs. We stayed for a week with our small dog and mostly used it as a base from which to explore South Cornwall. The property was immaculately clean when we arrived, and in an excellent condition for what is clearly an old property. The steep 'road' the cottage sits on took a little getting used to but it was certainly good exercise for us and the dog and it all just added to the charm. Inside the cottage is quite modern and well equipped with all the things you could possibly need for your stay. We didn't eat in the cottage very often outside of breakfast but should you find yourself wanting to make three meals a day there is everything there that you would find inside any standard kitchen. There is a also very reliable wifi, a smart TV and an amazon Alexa if you find yourself wanting to spend time in the cottage. The small patio/terrace at the back of the property is also very nice to sit out on although it does not really get much of the sunshine so can be a little chilly in the morning and late afternoon if the general temperature isn't particularly high. There is ample storage space for clothes in the main bedroom (we didn't use the second bedroom so can't really comment on what it would be like to stay in there) and the bathroom was well equipped - the shower in particular was lovely. The owners of the property were very friendly in all correspondence and provided us with all the information we could have needed. We did have a small issue during our stay and it was dealt with incredibly quickly, so if you do find you have any problems whilst you're there I am confident the owners would do everything in their power to sort it asap. Our dog is of the small guard dog variety and if he has a big space in which to wander he will never quite relax completely. Whilst the house isn't particularly large, it was a real benefit to us that we could put his bed in the utility area and close this space off overnight/whenever we could tell he wanted a sleep. Whilst we were staying there it was just a short drive to any of the major attractions in the area (St. Michael's Mount, The Minack theatre, Sennen/Lands End, St Ives (get the park and ride train from St Erth)) and a nice walk along the coast to Penzance and Mousehole. Also only about 30-40 minute drive to the top of the Lizard coast. Newlyn itself is also a wonderful location and you cannot let a visit pass without an ice cream from Jelberts or dinner at Mackerel Sky (don't let the queue beat you, get in it and stay in it until you've tasted their delicious food). Parking is always mentioned in these things... we never had an issue finding somewhere nearby to park - either in the car park which is relatively cheap and we always found a space, there's also a little pathway cut through so you can get to the cottage fairly quickly, or on street parking nearby (though might be trickier for those with a large car/little bravery).

Puffin cottage
Reviewed on 05/05/2021

It was a lovely cottage to stay in literally minutes walk from Newlyn Harbour and all the wonderful sights and fish mongers on the hrbour front. 10 mins walk from Duke st cafe and Mackerel Sky sea food bar - both of which I highly recommend. The cottage was clean and the hosts were super helpful. I had a slight plumbing issue whilst I stayed and Teresa organised it to be fixed the very same day with no trouble whatsoever. Only downside in Newlyn is the parking - the council car park is around the corner but spaces are hard to come by. Parking at Duke st was easier with a final park above Boase street helpful to load up. Take a small car! Large cars will not make it in Newlyn and walk everywhere as much as possible. It's nicer to walk anyway. Tnanks for a lovely break Puffin Cottage - hope to go again.
