Cosy but spacious seaside cottage
We found the cottage due to the excellent directions given by our host, up a small alleyway off the main street. The cottage had everything we needed and more. It had plenty of room but was cosy as well on those wet dreary evenings in autumn. I loved to sit and read in the small courtyard garden. The kitchen was well stocked and had every utensil imaginable. The location was ideal for Newlyn and just a short walk along the coast from Penzance, bus stop 10 paces from the front door. We enjoyed a meal at the local film house before the film. Also enjoyed the homemade ice-cream next door to the cottage. Local pubs were friendly and welcoming as was everyone we met in
Cornwall. Would definitely visit again.
very nice and beautiful litle cottage, not far from little fishers harbour and pubs and restuarants
Comfortable and nice decorated and very cosy, but I missed a little bigger garden.
The cottage tucked behind the Flower Shop certainly met our needs. The art work within was fabulous. Everything was in working order except the art lighting. Our only complaint was the cleanliness of the kitchen. The stove top was dirty, greasy top of fridge and counters and the floors needed a good scrub. Otherwise the bathroom was functional but clumsy with the shower not enclosed. The internet was great, bed comfortable and TVs worked well. The town people (shop owners) were all friendly and helpful. The neighbor restaurants excellent and movie theater up the street great.
The owner was helpful and responsive.
Herbert Cottage is a hidden gem that captivated our hearts the moment we opened the door. A sanctuary in the centre of Newlyn. It is a real home that wraps itself around you with its comfort and hospitality. The kitchen was well equipped the rooms had artwork and quirky touches at every turn. Subtle lighting spotify good WiFi a gorgeous bath and a very comfortable bed all added to the pleasure. The owner left information about the local area that helped us orientate and start discovering from the word go, very helpful as we were new to this part of Cornwall.Our visit was too short. We would love to return.
Lovely week in Newlyn!
We stayed in Lenn's flat in Newlyn for one week in September 2017. It's absolutely lovely. The flat itself has been newly re-done, with new appliances, a big television and great WiFi. The lounge is modern and comfortable. But it's the views that are truly awesome. The building is above the seawall and so there are unobstructed panoramic views out to sea. The side view is of people and dogs walking along a seafront promenade, with Penzance in sight as well. Newlyn is a pretty town and amenities such as groceries are very close by. Highly recommended.
Perfect cottage and location for two people.
Herbert Cottage is a truly beautiful home. It is full of paintings and other objets d’art produced mainly by local artists and are a delight to view. It is very well equipped and very comfortable to live in. Parking wasn’t a problem. Newlyn is a great place to stay and has so much to offer. There is excellent seafood available at the Tolcarne Inn and Mackerel Sky and also lovely cheese, fruit and vegetables from the local shops. It’s a great location for visiting beautiful beaches, coast paths and it’s not far to walk to both Mousehole and Penzance.
Lenn is a very friendly guy and will give you plenty of advice and recommendations to ensure you have a great time.
We hope to book the cottage again at some time in in the future.
Thanks Bev and Richard! Was a pleassure hosting you: you are always welcome back!
