Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Lyn Cottage was a perfect fit for our Cornwall vacation. The house is lovely, comfortable, and well appointed. We so enjoyed the view of the harbor from the front windows and the garden. It was nice to be able to walk to restaurants and shops and the Newlyn location is a convenient jumping off point for day trips.

Newlyn - The perfect location from which to explore Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean, everything worked, helpful instructions from the owner prior to our stay, removing any questions. Plenty of left over tea, coffee, sauces etc. which is always welcome and saves quite a bit of cash; would recommend to anyone.

Newlyn is a working village and so traffic is quite busy between 08.00 and 09.00 and 16.30 to 17.30 but as we were out most of the time, this was never really an issue for us. The village has everything you need, a well stocked Co-Op, bakeries, a couple of restaurants, some fast food outlets, a cinema and even a gallery. Penzance is a 20 minute stroll along the promenade, although my advice would be to stay in Newlyn.

Great base to explore Cornwall from, be it Lands End, Sennen, Gwithian, Praa Sands, Minack Theatre, Mousehole, Porthcurno - all within 20 minutes drive from Newlynn

We would happily return.

Lyn House - a gem in Newlyn

  • 5 of 5

A five-night stay over Christmas with my partner, teenage son, parents and two dogs was an absolute pleasure. Lyn House is beautifully presented and the kitchen is, as everyone else has said, well equipped - sufficient to prepare and serve full Christmas dinner for five! Lyn House is situated in such a lovely spot to take in views of Newlyn Harbour and out across to St Michaels Mount - the view alone could hold you for hours watching the fishermen preparing their boats and the movement of the tide. Alec the owner was super helpful with the booking and info prior to our stay, followed up with a welcome message when we arrived. After five nights we were sad to bid farewell. If you get the chance to book, do!

Wonderful cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage which has been sympathetically modernised and improved to create wonderful accommodation for up to 6 people. Exceptionally well equipped and spotlessly clean throughout. Superb views across the harbour to St Michaels Mount and lovely to sit in the window and watch the fishing boats going out and coming back in. Without doubt the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in.

Charming Cornish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, super clean, excellent facilities: gorgeous bathroom (I'm missing the shower already); a very well stocked kitchen (so refreshing to have all the utensils and pots and pans, etc you actually need in a kitchen in a rental property); very comfortable beds (even my 6'5" husband found the bed long enough and comfortable); an extensive supply of DVDs, games and guide books which all came in very handy during our stay.

The cottage is located close to shops, pubs and restaurants (The Italian Kitchen was a particular favourite with us, as was the local fish and chip shop, Lewis' Fish & Chips, at the end of the road). It is ideally located for visiting many attractions in the area (Land's End, Tintagel, St Michael's Mount, Minnack Theatre). Alec, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful in recommending beaches in the area prior to our arrival (Pothcurno and Sennen are beautiful). I'd definitely recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Cornwall.
