About the property

Studio Annex Newlyn near Penzance, Cornwall, England - Walkable distance to Penzance and Mousehole, close to many beautiful beaches.

Tremar annex is nestled on the hillside above Newlyn Harbour. Situated in a quiet location down a private lane, with no through traffic, the property has fabulous sea views over the Harbour to Penzance, Mounts Bay and across to Long Rock and countryside beyond. There is a pretty terraced garden with patios in both the front and back gardens. The annex is attached to my house, it has it's own front door and patio doors to the rear with access to a private terrace and the garden with spectacular views over Newlyn Harbour, Mounts Bay and the countryside beyond. From the front door and hallway to the left is the shower room, straight on takes you to the kitchenette, sleeping area and patio doors to the terrace.

I will be resident in the main house.

About Stephanie Monk

I bought the house in the summer of 2005, I live there with my two sons. When you see the view you'll understand why I bought the property.

Stephanie Monk purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Stephanie Monk chose South West Cornwall

I particularly love walking in West Penwith the landscape is spectacular and varied. The children and I love to body board at Sennen in the summer and I love visiting the local cafes and art galleries.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is quiet and relaxing, there is no noise at night except when there's a storm! We have plenty of greenery and space around us but central Penzance and it's bustling community is nearby. The views are fabulous.

Needs updating!

  • 1 of 5

Not very easy to find; not for the fearless! Toilet seat, & radiator need replacing, sink plug non-existent! Garden patio untidy! Patio sliding doors need adjusting, too hard to slide!

Bit disconcerting having owners bedroom door in our hallway!

All internal doors don't fit & very noisy!

View okay, but trees blocked a lot.

Owner pleasant; left milk in fridge & bits & pieces & towels were nice!

Plus dressing gowns.

No lounge, one easy chair & bed!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you didn't feel comfortable in the annex. I've had many people to stay and have not had these complaints before. People have really enjoyed their stay. My bedroom is not behind the door, there's a connecting room between the annex and the other part of the house which is currently not in use. The accommodation is accurately described in the listing, I do not pretend the property is palatial if it was the price would reflect that.

Quiet, good views and a neat little apartment.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here whilst attending a course at Newlyn art school. The flat is a 5 min walk away (though down the hill then back up the hill), and it was really convenient. It's obviously an extension to the owners home, but was really comfortable and perfect for a short stay. Stephanie had left bread, milk and butter, and there is every thing you need in the flat for your stay, including slippers and a dressing gown! The kitchen is compact but with a full oven and hob, plus microwave. If I return to do another art class, I would have no hesitation returning to this holiday home. The only complaint really was that it was the first cold snap of the year, and it was a little chilly in the flat, as the heating only seemed to come on at about 8 in the evening, but not in the morning. ( But for a summer break, this would not be a problem. ) It is a quiet flat with little night time noise, but only a 5 /10 min walk to the shops and restaurants.

I would describe the property as a Studio Flat with views over Newlyn Harbour and beyond.

  • 4 of 5

I arrived by public transport late in the evening and found the hill from the bus to the property very steep but I later discovered the easiest way to tackle it was to walk through the car park and join the steps at the point where the hand rail started.

The property was as good as expected and in fact the kitchen area had been updated since the photographs on the website. The bed was very comfortable and the view from the patio window very surprising when I opened the curtains on the first morning .

The reason for my stay was to continue walking the South West Coast Path, quite often this means returning with wet walking boots, jackets and over trousers therefore I was very happy to find the central heating came on around 8pm for 2 hours. It would be helpful for there was another form of heating available.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Perfectly situated

  • 4 of 5

Great location with spectacular views of the sea and beaches. The annex is small, but perfectly adequate for myself and young daughter. The main living/sleeping area was cosy, but had all you need. I really liked the bedding and comfort of the bed. The kitchen was modern and had all you needed to cook a full roast dinner! Although the floor is uncarpeted, there are several rugs in all areas. The shower was powerful and warm. Finding the annex was our only issue and we spent some time missing the turning to the lane, but this was my poor direction reading. Yes the roads are tight and windy, but not scary - we had a very small hire car which helped! Overall I felt very comfortable here and extremely safe. We were there whilst the owners next door (directly) so don't know how the dynamic would have changed, but would definitely return. My daughter especially liked playing with Tilly the cat who wandered in through the patio doors. Thanks.

Fantastic views, excellent value, a great base for our visit to the area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in July and the location was perfect. Stephanie left us some welcoming muesili, milk, honey and bread. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen area adequate. We did some cycling, despite the steep hills to get to the property, a couple of times we left the bikes chained up at the bottom of the hill to save taking them back up which worked out fine. You can walk or cycle into Mousehole and Penzance or get a train or bus to St Ives. We would stay there again if we were in the area, or would recommend to friends.
