Kay Fin description

Holiday home
Key Fin is a perfectly-located characterful cottage, overlooking the harbour in Newlyn, Cornwall. With two en-suite bedrooms and a ground floor shower room, up to four people can stay. There's also a kitchen with dining area and multi-fuel stove and a first floor sitting room with a coal-effect gas fire. Outside, there is a private off road parking space, there is no garden area at the property, as typical of traditional cottages of this style, there is however a public bench outside where you can settle together and enjoy the views. Kay Fin sits right on the coastal path and offers a great base for friends and family to enjoy this charming corner of Cornwall.

This Cornish village is clustered around the harbour, with its old quay curling around a few small boats on the western side, and much larger quays in the centre and on the eastern side of the harbour. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along Cornwall's nearby coastal path, while basking sharks and grey seals can occasionally be seen.

Everything about this cottage was fantastic. It was so well located and the cottage was spacious. The owner was very welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage - it was like home from home and we hope to come back one day.

We had a fabulous time, and a wonderful welcome from the owner. Kay Fin was everything we could have wished for in a cottage, looking forward to returning in August!

The house was lovely, we felt very at home and the views were amazing. Everything we needed was within walking distance, and we enjoyed walking down to buy really fresh fish every day. Will try and book again.

Kay Fin was as near a perfect holiday cottage as we could wish for. The location was perfect. Lovely views over the harbour The Fishermans Arms was excellent and the bus service was also good, stop only yards away,no need to take the car out every day. Parking spot was a bonus. We would certainly recommend and hope to visit again.

Key Fin is situated right next to the harbour in Newlyn. It is on a reasonably quiet road and has it's on bay in a small car park opposite. The cottage looks traditional and small from the outside, but is full of character and amenities when you get inside. Unusually one of the bedrooms, the twin, is downstairs with the kitchen. However this places the sitting room upstairs giving wonderful views of the harbour, this is a clever and rewarding choice. The kitchen is large and equipped with everything you could want. The cooker came up trumps for us and seemed to cook everything perfectly! There's a large dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, microwave and fridge and freezer. In the kitchen and indeed throughout the cottage, there were numerous books and decorative items; make sure to look in every drawer, as the cottage is full of items, both interesting and useful. Upstairs there is the large sitting room and the double bedroom. In addition to the aforementioned views there is a tele, dvd and sky box. There is also pretty speedy wifi. The sofas are large and comfortable, one opens out to a bed, though we didn't need to use it. Each bedroom has an ensuite; we tended to use the twin room's one, as it has a lovely, large bath. The double has a shower, and there is another shower downstairs off the kitchen. There are also 3 toilets. Newlyn itself, is a lovely village, close (walking distance) to Penzance, there's a supermarket, chemist and numerous restaurants and pubs. It's well situated to access a lot of Cornwall's attractions, e.g. Land's End (the owners gave us a handy tip in their guide to go to Sennen Cove and walk there, which was lovely), Porthcurno (with the Minack Theatre) and St Michael's Mount. We also traveled to Newquay, which is about an hour away and, on the only really rainy day of our week away, went to the small cinema in Penzance. All in all we really enjoyed our stay in the cottage in particular and Cornwall in general. I would recommend Key Fin to any families with 2-3 kids, although probably better for slightly older kids, as the stairs are steep and younger ones might not like being downstairs from the adults? My 14 year old's view is that "it's better than our house", so I guess he liked it too :)
