What guests are saying.....


"Beautiful place to stay, the cottage is so welcoming. The summer house even in the rain will cheer you up. Newlyn is wonderful and a really nice place to explore. Scones and cream on arrival sold it for me."

Sarah. T - September 2019

"Cosy and charming cottage. Well-equipped and accurate to description. Great information pack from Seb prior to arrival. Responsive and accommodated slightly delayed checkout time. Touches such as the welcome pack of scones and clotted cream, as well as the parking permit were much appreciated."

Eric. M - September 2019

"The cottage is just like the pictures beautiful and quirky. Everything is there you would need with the added luxury of a washing machine. Location was spot on for exploring the rest of Cornwall, we walked into Penzance and used the outside lido which was lovely and clean. Everyone should visit St. Michaels Mount and get your feet wet don’t take the boat! Took a day trip to the Isles of Scilly, just so much to do.Plenty of lovely restaurants in Newlyn spoilt for choice."

Lisa. M - August 2019

"A perfect cottage in a lovely area. Very quiet cottage away from the town but close enough to walk. Great pub a hundred feet away. Very comfortable. Make sure and park in the public car park area before walking to the cottage. The roads are steep. Great place to stay and we would definitely come back."

"We had a lovely stay over New Year. Cottage is well equipped with excellent kitchen/dining ware, nice dining area and comfy lounge with cosy wood burner. Spotlessly clean throughout with hotel style linen and comfy beds. Great to have a parking permit for nearby parking and the outdoor terraces must be fab in the summer!"

“This is a lovely modern and tastefully decorated house, tucked away in a side street just a minutes walk from Newlyn Harbour...... I would highly recommend a stay here.”

Martin Pullen - September 2018

“We had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage. Communication was excellent from the beginning with lots of helpful follow up tips and instructions to make our trip easy and enjoyable. The cottage is tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and spotlessly clean....Thank you! Newlyn was also a perfect place to recharge, with fresh seafood straight off the boat or purchased at a local seafood market, cool sea breezes and easy access to buses and other transportation. We look forward to staying again.”

Bridget Riddler - September 2018

"A lovely place to relax and perfect base to explore. Lulyn cottage is a hidden away gem. Beautifully decorated and fitted out the house has a warm and welcoming feel about it. The various terraces and decks give a range of options to enjoy the view, catch the sun or chill out and read a book. And it’s quiet - Lulyn Cottage is highly recommended and we will be going again!"

Mike Bullock - August 2018

"we had an amazing stay in Lulyn Cottage.The place is quite simply astonishing. Well equipped, beautifully decorated and well looked after. Newlyn is very charming, located on steep slopes near a working fishing port and it works perfectly as a starting point for daily excursions to Porthcurno, Land's End, Sennen Cove, Marazion etc. We loved it, thank you and hoping to be coming back soon.”

Johan Adamsson and family - July 2018

"Just as it said on the tin - A beautifully and tastefully decorated cottage. We have had a thoroughly enjoyable weeks stay in Lulyn Cottage and have made use of every decked area!! Loved watching the activity in the harbour from the top level. The cottage is great for exploring. We have visited Falmouth, St Ives, Porthleven, St Just and walked the coastal path from Cape Cornwall to Lands End. Wonderful to return to such a welcoming cottage after dinner in many of the excellent eateries in the area."

WHERE IT IS

"Lulyn cottage, Newlyn"

The gorgeous Lulyn Cottage is full of character and style and tucked away on the Newlyn/Mousehole border. With all the amenities of the beautiful fishing port of Newlyn, the advantage of a private parking space, incredible sea views and stunning gardens, what’s not to love in this perfect Cornish fisherman's cottage.

Walking through the garden gate you immediately get the sense you’re in a secret hideaway. There are wonderful gardens heading up through various levels and seating areas, to the summerhouse at the top with its breathtaking vistas. Where better to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine, watching the fishing boats come and go, as the sun moves over the iconic St Michael’s Mount?

Walking in through the stable door of this charming cottage you enter the contemporary living area which is open plan to the kitchen/dining room. It’s a spacious and social space, perfect for cooking up a feast with the local catch of the day, or getting cosy in front of the woodburner with a good book or movie. The cottage has been beautifully designed with its stylish interiors, Loaf furniture and interesting artwork. Ideal for couples or small families alike we won’t leave out you’re four-legged friend; doggies are most welcome at Lulyn! Upstairs the master bedroom with its hotel like king size bed, has french doors out to a very private decked patio area. It’s a very grown up bedroom where you are sure to sleep soundly. Two further single bedrooms have super sea views across the rooftops through their characterful windows and if bringing children, they get a bedroom each!

If glorious sea views in a tucked away location with all the modern comforts, is what you’re after, then Lulyn ticks all the boxes for that perfect Cornish holiday….

Location

Among all the pretty touristic towns and villages of West Cornwall, Newlyn feels the most authentic. It remains one of the biggest fishing fleets in the UK and as such gives a unique insight into a proper Cornish fishing port. You can buy fish and seafood straight from the boats, or from one of the many fishmongers.Its streets are quaint and have many old houses crammed down traffic free lanes, but it's the port that gives it its character. Newlyn is fantastic to visit at any time of year, but August Bank Holiday Fish Festival is not to be missed. As is the New Year’s Eve fireworks at Mousehole.

Despite Newlyn retaining much of its original character the march of time is catching up and it’s becoming quite the destination. This is helped by a couple of fabulous eateries including the Tolcarne Inn with its Michelin starred chef and the amazing new Cinema “the Newlyn filmhouse”. Developed from an old fish merchants store and partly funded by the Curzon group you could be forgiven for thinking you’re in central London with the fantastic bar and gorgeous interiors.

Travelling around, the impossibly quaint village of Mousehole is walking distance. It’s only a mile away and a half away and a stunning walk along the coastal road. Alternatively there is a bus stop by the St Peter’s Hill car park, where you can catch a bus to Mousehole or continue round to the lovely sandy beach of Sennen Cove. Mousehole has a number of highly regarded resturants and cafes, while Marazion, St Ives, Penzance and Sennen are all well worth visiting and an easy drive away.

Newlyn has a strong artistic heritage. It is loved by artists and famed for its art. The Newlyn School was formed by Stanhope Forbes and Walter Langley who started the British plein air movement (paint outside)and included Henry Scott Tuke as well as others, many of whose works are in the Tate Britain collection. 

Living

The comfortable and cosy living area has stunning wood floors flowing across the whole of the downstairs. The sitting room is centred on the woodburner and it’s a wonderful place to relax in, with a three and a two-seater sofa. There’s a SMART flat screen internet TV/DVD and the fitted desk, with its sixties styling, is a good spot to pen a postcard home. 

Cooking and Eating

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast with a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The sunny dining area with fabulous Loaf table and fitted bench seats and chairs is perfectly positioned to enjoy your meals, while looking out to sea or into your private garden.

Sleeping

The master bedroom has french doors out to a private decked terrace; a wonderful place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or breakfast.There is a king size bed with a super comfy pocket sprung mattress dressed in white company linen. A fitted wardrobe with hanging space and shelves and a make up area with mirror, ensures you have everything you need to make yourself at home.. The two single bedrooms have sea views from their coastal style windows. The larger of the two has a beautiful Loaf wardrobe, with drawers and hanging and the smaller has pretty hangers and drawers under the bed.

Bathing

The white bathroom suite is great for relaxing in after a day out in the sand and surf with constant hot water. There is a bath with a shower over it. Bath towels will be supplied for you, just remember to bring your own beach towels.

Outside

The gardens at Lulyn are such a feature, with four terraces across various levels, being planted with numerous plants, shrubs and flowers. Outside the front door a small raised patio catches the morning sun. Up to the top past the master bedroom’s terrace, there is a decked terrace with bistro table and chairs for al fresco meals. The other side of this is the wonderful summer house on its own terrace. What a spot to read the papers looking out across the sea and Mount’s Bay.

GOOD TO KNOW

Utility room: The outside utility room houses the washing machine and has plenty of space for storing surf boards, bikes and beach gear.

Parking. There is a private parking space for guests sole use just below the cottage in St Peter’s Hill car park.

PetsThe far west is a dog's paradise.

One well behaved dog is welcome at £25 per stay. Please make sure they stay off the furniture and that you rub down muddy feet before they come in.
