Yachts in the bay

Newlyn itself is a quaint but bustling fishing port (and home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the country). There are galleries, cafes, restaurants and a variety of pubs. The nearest pub to Christmas Cottage is the Fisherman's Arms a few minutes walk away, where you will be assured of a warm welcome.Excellent fish and seafood are available locally from the fishermen or fish market. There is a small supermarket, butchers, florists, bakers, green-grocers, pharmacy, together with a newsagent, gift shops and a Post Office.

Yachts in the bay

Along the coast a short distance is Mousehole, yet another picturesque village and harbour. Although there are many pleasant coastal walks, the bus service operates regularly and there is also an excellent taxi service. Landís End is a short drive away as are Marazion and Heligan Gardens. The Eden Project and the Tate Gallery St Ives are a little further away. Nearby are sandy beaches for children to play and dig, and also for windsurfers and surfers. Scuba diving trips leave from Penzance and Newlyn.

Newlyn Sunrise

Entertainment in the summer can be enjoyed at the Minack Open Air Theatre at Porthcurno, an excellent way to spend an evening, with the backdrop of the sea. The annual Newlyn Fish Festival is an interesting and colourful event, and prior to Christmas and through to the New Year, Newlyn, and the neighbouring Mousehole enjoy spectacular Christmas Lights.
