About Barry Chadwick

My Grandparents first started letting accomodation to holidaymakers in the 1950's and my family has continued this in Penzance ever since.

Why Barry Chadwick chose South West Cornwall

The house is in a very good and safe nieghbourhhood and has no thru traffic ; birdsong is the chief cause of noise and the faint toot of a trawler horn as they signal one and all they are going to sea. The nieghbours are very freindly knowledgable of local imformation and have created wonderful gardens. Fortunately a previous owner of Porth has created a well stocked and planned garden also.

What makes this house unique

A light , warm and unique home in a quiet and beautiful setting convenient for all amenities and for all the local attractions such as St Micheal's Mount or the Minack theatre.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great property layout and location

  • 4 of 5

The property had a great layout and a great location. Very convenient for Newlyn and Penzance which are only a short stroll away. The view across the harbour was also spectacular! The layout of the property was very convenient especially for our party of two couples and one baby. The double driveway was a great benefit too.

Whilst we were there the tumble dryer stopped working but the landlord sent a workman round the next day to fix it, so top marks for that!

The only real downside was the bathroom which got very steamed up even with the window open and was generally a little bit on the tired side. Also the carpet in the living room could do with being hoovered more thoroughly as it had quite a lot of hairs which was very obvious with a baby crawling round picking them up.

Overall we had an amazing trip and were very happy with our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback which is always useful. The bathroom fan had been adjusted by someone so that it wasn't switching on unless it was dark. ie all showers during the day may not have activated the fan {but I thought I had corrected that before your vacation?] As you correctly perceived the house has been constantly let for some time now and is due a major refurbishment especially the bath room which has suffered from customers allowing water to spill on the floor to the side of the bath. As I am sure you will appreciate it is very difficult to organise repairs during the busy season when there is often only a few hours to sort out any problems. The property has been properly hovered every week , so I am perplexed at the hair /floor issue. That said I do ask all holidaymakers to contact me asap for anything , however trivial, as soon as they find fault. I live nearby and would happily re hoover the lounge. As it is I now have no opportunity to rectify the issues you raise. Again thank you for taking the time to review and for giving me the opportunity to explain things, also thank you for leaving the property so exceptionally clean

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with a panoramic view of the bay below and the fishing village of Newlyn which is nestled at the the foot of the hill.

Spotlessly clean and tidy. Good lay-out. Comfortable living room with large bay-like windows and a commanding view. Three good size bedrooms ( 2 x double; 1 x 2 singles). Fully fitted bathroom on the landing and separate toilet downstairs. Fully equipped kitchen with all the mod-cons. Inviting front garden with drive-way/parking. Small but pleasant back garden with furniture. Easy no fuss check-in and check-out. Ideal property for us.

Five minute walk into the centre of Newlyn and 10-15 minutes to Penzance. A 20 minute stroll will take you to the picturesque harbour village of Mousehole. 45-60 minutes in the opposite direction along the costal pathway will bring you to the spectacular St. Michael's Mount. Newlyn has a fantastic choice of fishmongers with catch of the day from the neighbouring fishing fleet, and 3 great restaurants/bars all serving the freshest of seafood. In descending order of price - Tolcarne Inn; Sky Mackerel; the Red Lion. Got to try the crab soup in the latter!

Penzance is a lively, unpretentious town with a smattering of decent cafes, good quality souvenir shops, a number of fine galleries, 3 large supermarkets, easy parking and uncluttered roads.

If you want to avoid the tourist hordes in high season and are looking for a home base with easy access to all the regional tourist attractions Newlyn/Penzance is the place to stay.

And last but not least thank you to Barry our host for his hospitality and making our stay comfortable and uncomplicated. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Cheers Sean, very glad your holiday went well. I intend to upgrade and add some features over the winter as the property has been working hard for a long while and needs it's own time out. You and your friends would be welcome back any time. We should have it all ready by April.
