Tucked away in the heart of the picturesque and historical fishing village of Newlyn is this delightful little number - a lovingly restored cottage perfect for small families or couples. Arty and characterful, the interiors are a homage to seaside living in marine shades throughout, maintaining all its charm and bags of original features. With wonderful sea, harbour and garden views, this is a little oasis of calm, plus dogs are welcome too. The village of Newlyn boasts a plethora of wonderful places to eat and is the perfect location for exploring the far west of Cornwall, from St Michael's Mount around to St Ives and beyond.

The beautiful sitting room is a joy in shades of blue, grey and white and retains all its original features such as the beamed ceiling and the fireplace, now home to a cosy wood burner. With lush garden views, a cosy, cushiony sofa to cuddle up on and two wonderful occasional chairs (just made for moments with a good book), there's plenty of seating choice, whilst there's a Smart TV for film nights and a retro digital Roberts radio.

In addition, there's a super snug upstairs with pretty sea views, a desk (ideal for artists inspired by the views) plus a daybed - the perfect spot for an afternoon snooze with just the sound of the sea and the seagulls in the distance.


The gorgeous George Robinson-designed kitchen is just a delight in Farrow and Ball blue, with all the equipment you'll need tucked neatly away including an induction hob and oven, dishwasher, washer-dryer and all the other essentials including a Nespresso machine for those all-important morning coffees. The dining table with trestle seating and chairs is the perfect spot for meals, and we just love the quirky neon lighting above. Being so close to the historic fishing harbour, you're just a few easy steps from the plethora of fishmongers where you'll find the freshest of fish and seafood on offer - delicious!


There are two beautiful bedrooms to choose from. The master bedroom lies to the front of the property and boasts lovely sea views which you can gaze at from the sumptuously cosy king-size bed. The second bedroom with idyllic garden views has a handy zip-and-link bed, meaning it can be either a super-king bed or two large singles. Both rooms boast eye-catching artwork, plenty of storage and luxurious linens and bedding - the perfect spots to fall into after a perfect day out exploring west Cornwall.


Downstairs, you'll find the pretty, characterful bathroom with roll-top freestanding bath (perfect for long soaks), gorgeous tiled floor, eye-catching stained-glass window and delightfully retro loo. Upstairs, handily close to the bedrooms, is a lovely shower room with original vintage Newlyn tiles, powerful shower to wake you up in the morning and a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

We just love the tucked-away, private gardens. To the front of the house you'll pass mature gardens with a shingled path leading to the front door, where there's a terrace with fabulous sea and harbour views. In the morning, make the most of the sunshine with al fresco meals on the table and chairs, whilst to the back to the back of the house there is a small, walled courtyard which has a bistro table and chairs - ideal for afternoon tea - and lush planting.


There is on street parking or in the nearby car park.
