    “Blissful Break”

    We have just turned the key to leave Westcliff and we will definitely return. Oliver contacted me before arrival and was incredibly kind, when I could not get a dinner reservation for my Birthday he sorted one out. The house itself is packed with thoughtfulness, the kitchen is completely equipped and I wandered down to the fish shop and cooked up the freshest spaghetti vongole. When we arrived it was grey but the kids were delighted with the bunk beds and books and kept themselves occupied ...

    We have just turned the key to leave Westcliff and we will definitely return. Oliver contacted me before arrival and was incredibly kind, when I could not get a dinner reservation for my Birthday he sorted one out. The house itself is packed with thoughtfulness, the kitchen is completely equipped and I wandered down to the fish shop and cooked up the freshest spaghetti vongole. When we arrived it was grey but the kids were delighted with the bunk beds and books and kept themselves occupied whilst I unpacked. There are games and jigsaws for the evenings and we enjoyed nightly games of scrabble over a glass of vino. The blue chair rapidly became mummies chair as I woke early to watch the fishing boats coming and going with my cuppa. There is a short walk to a hidden cove where the locals swim from and a seal is a regular visitor. The second night whilst playing in the water with my daughter he decided to join us... totally amazing experience. The local ice cream shop sells the most delicious fresh ice-cream and is owned by a relative of Helen Glover whom we met swimming with her husband Steve Backshall. Such a welcoming and friendly house and town. Unfortunately the Jubilee Pool was closed and we could not get tickets for Saint Michaels Mount but it means that we left and can’t wait to come back. Thank you Oliver

The property

A prime waterfront location, this traditional granite cottage has unrivalled views over Newlyn’s magnificent harbour and the stunning coastline at Mount’s Bay.

Newlyn sits in south-west Cornwall, between the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole and the historic port of Penzance.

This charismatic seaside town is an active fishing port providing safe anchorage to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK.

Westcliff offers an exceptional setting with immense letting appeal.

Set in an elevated harbour side position, guests can admire uninterrupted views to the iconic castle topped island of St Michael’s Mount and as far as the Lizard Peninsula on clear days.

Ideal for friends and families, Westcliff’s stone granite exterior belies a modern and spacious interior.

Large picture windows frame far reaching coastal views and flood the large first floor sitting room with light.

Time can be spent watching the changing skies and tides and the comings and goings of the fishing boats as they land their catch.

The spacious ground floor double bedroom also has a superb water vista.

There is a second double bedroom, a bunk bedroom which children will love and a family size bathroom, plus separate WC on the first floor.

A modern, spacious and well equipped kitchen dining room is located on the ground floor and provides access to an enclosed and sheltered courtyard garden with furniture for alfresco meals and idle time.

Allocated parking is available for one car a few minutes’ walk from the cottage.

This smart coastal bolthole is ideally located, within paces of old inns, restaurants and probably the best fish market in the UK.

It is worth rising at dawn to buy the freshest seafood for a delicious supper from the bustling fish market.

You will also find curio shops and art galleries including the famous Newlyn Art Gallery.

Scenic walks can commence from the front door with dog in tow.

Follow the coast path and discover sandy beaches at Marazion, Lamorna Cove and Porthcurno.

Continue farther to the renowned Minack Theatre and, for a more energetic walk, onto Land’s End.

Westcliff is ideal for breaks at any time of year.

About the location

NEWLYN

Penzance 1 mile.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint village in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all sea baring craft. It is unusual in that visitors can still watch the landing and auctioning of fish at the market, as many families have for centuries before. This Cornish village is clustered around the harbour, with its historic 800 year old quay (the Mayflower actually left for America from this quay, not Plymouth) curling around a few small boats on the western side. Famous for the Newlyn school of Art and Newlyn Copper, the Cornwall Coastal Path passes through the village, as does the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along both, with basking sharks, dolphins and grey seals often seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing, and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport as well as surf fishing for sea bass. Mounts Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.
