What a fantastic stay! As soon as I booked the communication with Hilary was excellent. Hilary and Richard met us when we arrived and filled us in on the area and all the best places to eat. We were in Cornwall to visit some of the Poldark filming locations and Hilary kindly pointed out her favourite to us on a map. The location is perfect for exploring Cornwall, and by car we covered Holywell Bay to Porthcurno and everywhere in between! The cottage itself is very well equipped (probably more so than my own house!), is very clean, cosy and homely. The view of the harbour from the master bedroom is lovely, plus there is a pretty little courtyard to the back of the house as well as a small seating area to the front. The beds are comfy, the wifi great and a good selection of books and games for those rainy afternoons. One of the nicest Air BnBs I have stayed in and will definitely stay again next time we are in Cornwall

A wonderful house for a stay in Cornwall. The most comfortable bed with views over the harbour. A really well equipped kitchen if you're eating in, and a cosy lounge for relaxing after a tough day at the beach! Thanks for having us!

What a wonderful, whimsical place! A true "English seaside cottage-like" experience. The home was somewhat magical, being so filled with history and intrigue and the views of Newlyn Harbour from the master bedroom were exceptional. The home was spotlessly clean and we wanted for absolutely nothing. Hilary and Richard has provided us with a lovely continental breakfast for our first morning and the kitchen cupboard held plenty of teas and coffees etc. to keep us going for the whole duration of our 3 night stay. Many thoughtful touches were evident throughout the home, including ample cookware and cutlery, dishes and other "nice-to-have" kitchen supplies. The bed in the master bedroom where we slept was very, very comfortable and to make things even better we had a number of "pillow options" available to us to ensure our comfort while sleeping. A good selection of DVD movies as well as television viewing was most appreciated on our first day, which was cool and misty. The Wi-Fi worked very well and there were lots of books, magazines and local information available to us too. The location was excellent, an easy stroll into Penzance and all that "pirate place" had to offer. We also walked the sea front out to the castle on St. Michael's Mount (very worthwhile) and stopped to enjoy one of the best ice cream cones ever (real Devon cream). Another enjoyable trip was taking the bus to St. Ives, where we enjoyed real Cornish pasty's and a real Cornish High Tea. Local transport is easy and efficient and the local population is friendly, helpful and engaging. Our communications and dealing with Hilary and Richard were extremely pleasant and efficient. In fact, Hilary provided us with tons of helpful information, right from the time that we booked our accommodations through until we left....superb hosts. We would definitely recommend this wonderful and quite "spot by the sea" if you ever plan to visit the Penzance/Newlyn area in Cornwall. Thanks Hilary and Richard, we hope we'll return someday.

Hilary and Rick went out of their way to be the perfect hosts, including giving us a lift in their car when we asked. We feel that they excelled in the b&b game and we would certainly have no reservations in recommending their property to anyone interested in visiting this beautiful area.

Charming, friendly and helpful hosts, even providing warm sunshine every day. Delightful cottage (parking provided), well appointed with everything we could possibly have needed for our stay. Great base for touring and walking, friendly local pubs and excellent restaurants. Highly recommended and would definitely look to return. Loved our stay, many thanks.

We came for a mid week exploring the south tip of Cornwall! The cottage as a lovely place to stay and a wonderful space to come home to after a wet day! The decor is light and the cottage is very well equipped! The parking space is perfect as it can become very busy around there! We will hopefully be back soon!

The cottage is very well equipped, with ample facilities, cosy and clean. From the main bedroom you can overlook the harbour, the Sea and St.Michael`s Mount. Hilary and her husband will give you a very warm welcome and will be always there should you need help or information. Newlyn is the ideal place to explore the surrounding coastal area by car or on foot. There is a frequent 15-minutes bus service to nearbye Penzance. But there are shops and pubs in Newlyn. We recommend The Fisherman`s Arms for excellent food and awsome views over the harbour.

My husband and I have lived nearly all our married life in Cornwall and have brought up our 3 children here. They have now flown the nest and we retired to Newlyn from North Cornwall a few year's ago. We love living here and it gives us the sort of life that keeps us young at heart!
We are great readers and music listeners - and are rediscovering our love of film now we have a cinema in walking distance. There is so much fabulous coastline to enjoy, and pubs/eateries with great Cornish food at all times of the year. What more could we want!
