A beautifully presented and charming Victorian house which sits in a commanding position overlooking Newlyn Green with stunning views of the iconic island of St. Michael’s Mount and the Lizard peninsula in the distance. Cawdor House is located in a traffic free terrace just off the seafront and is therefore ideally situated for guests to take advantage of the promenade path that runs between Penzance and Newlyn – ideal for that early morning stroll or evening cycle with a well deserved pint in the Tolcarne Inn just around the corner! Completely refurbished and decorated in soft neutral colours, this spacious property benefits from a new fitted kitchen, a large basement room with tennis table for when the younger element wish to let off some steam and a pretty rear courtyard for a quiet read or the family BBQ in the evening after a long day on the beach! All of these elements combine to make Cawdor House a first class and extremely comfortable family holiday home in a really convenient position. The ancient port of Newlyn can trace its heritage back to the early Phoenician times when traders sailed into Mount’s Bay to barter for Tin and in 1620; the Old Quay was the last landfall for the Mayflower as she took on water before her historic voyage to America. Today, the busy fishing port of Newlyn and the regional hub of Penzance nearby provide a wealth of eating experiences ranging from some of the finest fresh fish and seafood in the world from the nearby markets, superb home made pasties, award winning restaurants and goods pubs serving local beer and food using fresh Cornish produce.

Located just a mile west of Penzance, the ancient fishing port of Newlyn is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the South of England. The seemingly constant bustle and activity of the port gives visitors a fascinating glimpse into this frequently dangerous industry that has been a mainstay of the community since the early 16th century; enormous ocean going beam trawlers, long liners and crabbers that often stay at sea for weeks on end, dwarf the dozens of small open boats that fish for mackerel from hand lines in the Bay. Visitors are able to browse in the many wet fish shops that abound in the area and sample some of the finest fresh fish and seafood in the world. On a road leading back from the harbour is the Pilchard Museum which is now closed however, there is still a cottage industry showcasing just how this small, yet so vital, fish is still processed and packed for shipment all over the world.
Nestled behind the main road that runs around the harbour and connects neighbouring Penzance and Mousehole, are an enchanting maze of numerous small streets and donkey-wide alleys, many with traditional, if highly unusual, names: The Fradgan, Gwavas Quay and Bowjey Hill, to name but three. Looking down on the harbour, the invariably white-painted or granite fisherman's cottages and traditional pubs are found side by side. Tucked away amid streets often too steep and too narrow for a car to navigate - all just waiting to be discovered! Newlyn is synonymous with one of Britain's great art movement's, the Newlyn School. The movement flourished during the late nineteenth century, and with Newlyn very much at its focus, inspired artists to capture the area on canvas. The skill and craftsmanship of the paintings by the Newlyn School is celebrated at Penlee House, also home to the historic collections of Penzance Town Council, Penwith District Council and the Newlyn Art Gallery.
Off the promenade leading from Penzance into Newlyn is the Orion Gallery which exhibits the work of a wide variety of artistic talent, with particular emphasis on the work, past and present, of local artists in both contemporary and traditional fields. While small, it has a reputation belying its size and is well known around the world.
It is well worth visiting The Old Quay in Newlyn Harbour which was the last British landfall of The Mayflower in 1620, when she arrived in the port to take on water before sailing to America with the pilgrims.
