Newlyn lies on a much loved stretch of coast between lands end and lizard point, with sandy coves for relaxing and the inspiring coastal path for exploring. Its unique character lies as much in its history as a vital fishing village as it does as an artist's colony and the home of the famous Newlyn school of artists.
Newlyn is beautifully sited for exploring the glorious landscape of Penwith. The coastal walk from Newlyn to Lamorna Cove via Mousehole is wonderful, with traditional Cornish pubs en route incuding the Old Coastguard at Mousehole.
