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.
Town: Newlyn is a lovely harbour village on the Cornish coast, between Mousehole and Penzance. Working fishing fleet still land their catch from the harbour, which makes for fascinating viewing on a morning stroll. St Michael's Mount can be seen rising from the waters in the distance, and a trip over the causeway to this famous landmark is a must. The Cornish coastal path runs close to Newlyn, and walkers can enjoy a host of interesting wildlife and plant species, as well as stunning views. There are great beaches in the area, and Mounts Bay offers a variety of watersports. With the Tate at St Ives, The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan within easy reach, this is a wonderful holiday destination.

I had a wonderful time staying at Chirgwin cottage, the house made the holiday very special and one I will always remember. We came with a group of friends and it was great for that.
Very well equipped with everything you need. Comfortable, nicely furnished with lovely views of the harbour.
Good locaton close to local shops and pubs but still away from the hustle and bustle. We loved walking from Newlyn to Mousehole along the coast. The Red Lion is a nice friendly local pub with nice food.
It's also a good location for Penzance, Land's End and other popular Cornwall tourist areas. I would recommend a visit to Prussia Cove (a short drive away, the other side of Penzance) it's so beautiful there.
Fabulous Newlyn fishermans cottage

We love West Cornwall, but now have extra happy memories of it following our stay in Chirgwin Cottage. The views across Mounts Bay from the sitting room are wonderful, and the cottage has a homely feel, made especially cosy by the brillaint red aGa.
We will definatly be booking again.

Sykes Holiday Cottages cannot be faulted for their customer care...felt I had known the ladies I talked to for years!!! The cottage was delightful with the most amazing sea view across Marazion bay. Sitting in the window seat with a glass of wine watching the sun go down was bliss. Walking distance of Penxance and Mousehole, and Newlyn had everything we needed for everyday living.
The only thing I would say is that the stairs were extremely steep, and as the kitchen is on the ground floor and the sitting room is on the first floor, had to be negotiated regularly. For someone less agile it would prove to be a problem. Apart from that couldn't fault the cottage.
