If it’s coastal character you’re looking for you won’t be disappointed.
Newlyn is a busy and thriving fishing port on the western side of Mounts Bay, home of the iconic St. Michael’s Mount. It provides it’s residents with a good range of amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy, bakers & butchers, pubs & restaurants and even it’s own independent multi screen cinema. There are chapels and a church as well as a highly regarded infant and junior school. The sea is very much the focus of Newlyn, the centre of the town being dominated by a working harbour with it’s busy fishing fleet and quayside fish market. Famous also for it’s community of artists, the Newlyn School has a rich history, and the town
still has a school of art and the famous Newlyn Gallery on the green. The major town of Penzance is just a mile away along the sea front, where you will find a more comprehensive range of commercial, leisure and educational facilities and a main line rail link to London Paddington.
