Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A really enchanting little gem! – beautifully appointed throughout, in a quiet traffic free location and with the added benefit of a balcony with gorgeous sea views of Newlyn Harbour and Mounts Bay. Sea Whispers is located in an elevated position on the outskirts of Newlyn and just above the foreshore to take advantage of the views. Dating back to the late 1800's, this end of terrace fisherman's cottage has been painstakingly and lovingly renovated to create a real home from home with a good use of the space available and a meticulous eye for detail. A combination of real wood and slate floors, a soft decorative palette, quality hand made soft furnishings, fixtures and fittings throughout make Sea Whispers an ideal holiday property for a young family or for just a couple who require additional space and the need for a little peace and quiet. A unique benefit to the property – and there are many! – is that there are numerous areas where guests can sit outside and admire the sea views – either with a chilled glass of wine after a hard day's sightseeing or for a cup of coffee in the morning sun and that long awaited book! To the side of the cottage is a pretty little terraced area with wall seating and a lovely snapshot view of Mounts Bay and St Michael's Mount in the distance. To the rear and on the ground floor is an additional courtyard area and on the first floor – accessed through the main bedroom – is a lovely balcony with extensive views over Newlyn Harbour and Mount's Bay. Decorated with blue painted railings and pretty flowering plant pots, this balcony catches the sun for most of the day and is ideal if you just wish to chill out and get away from it all! The ancient village of Newlyn and its commercial fishing port is but a short stroll from the cottage where you can sample some of the finest fresh fish and seafood anywhere in the world! Steeped in history, Newlyn lies on the western shore of Mount's Bay and has provided a sheltered anchorage from the fiercesome Atlantic rollers since ancient times, indeed records confirm that the Romans and the Phoenicians traded in the port for Cornish tin. The old quay which is nor too far from the cottage was the last landfall of the Mayflower as she took on water before her historic voyage to the Americas in 1620. The bustling harbour is the second largest white fish port in the country and is home to one of the latest and most technically advanced RNLI lifeboats in the UK. Sea Whispers is an enchanting little property which will certainly not disappoint!
