Holiday home Mermaid Cottage is a cosy end terraced cottage just a moment's stroll from the beach, opposite the art gallery in Newlyn. There are two double bedrooms, and a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. The fitted kitchen has a breakfast area, while the sitting room has an electric fire and leads to the dining room. Outside is a small enclosed courtyard, and parking is available in the public car park 100 yards away. With St Michael's Mount and Newlyn on the doorstep, and the rest of the area within easy reach, Mermaid Cottage makes a wonderful Cornish base.
Area Newlyn in Cornwall is a fishing port whose buildings cluster around the harbour, and two quays full of boats. There are amenities in the village including a shop and a pub, and the beauty of Cornwall is evident all around this area. The coastal path runs nearby and walkers will enjoy spotting the flora and fauna on land, and perhaps even glimpsing basking sharks and grey seals in the waters. Head to the beaches for excellent surfing, or participate in the many water sports which are on offer in this lovely holiday destination.
Region Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.
We particularly liked the location of Mermaid Cottage and its very distinct style it feels more like someones home rather than a holiday cottage.
The cottage is clearly loved, and felt very welcoming. It is in a fantastic position.
The cottage is warm and cosy a real home from home. Location is fabulous and views stunning. Our 2nd year at Mermaid Cottage and will be back next year.
The cottage had a really welcoming feel to it. Within a couple of hours we felt as if it was our home! The location was excellent and there was a very good pack telling you where all of the local attractions were.
The cottage was very quiet and set in a lovely little village. The cottage was cosy and comfortable and I would visit this cottage again. The garden (courtyard) was enjoyable, relaxing and quite a sun trap.
The location of the cottage was perfect. It was warm, clean and comfortable.
We chose this property because of its location and it didn't disappoint ;wonderful views especially during the gales! Perfect for dog walking.

Very cosy, and everything you needed, we all really enjoyed our stay at Mermaid Cottage, and would stay again.
The location as a holiday base is first class. Right in the heart of Newlyn.
Being a winter holiday the heating in the cottage was very welcome. It was always nice and warm! I would recommend this cottage as an ideal base. Very comfortable property to which we will love to return to.
The cottage was walk-able to absolutely everywhere. It was very dog friendly. The fresh fish available from fishmongers was wonderful.
Loved Penzance and surrounding areas. Cottage comfortable and fabulous location. Garden not really a garden but adequate. Only complaint was that the grill didn't fit the cooker so couldn't grill my bacon in the mornings. Had a fabulous week.
We have been visiting Penzance area for 35 years annually with our children and now our grandchildren and rented many Cottages and used many rental sites. We founds Sykes website easy to use for someone not particularly computer literate and found booking a click of a button away. The cottage was everything it was descibed and ideal for us with young children and the location was wonderful - practically on the beach and within walking distance of Mousehole and Penzance. It was so fab we have already booked it for 2014.
