Cove Cottage

.Cove Cottage is not so much a holiday cottage but a comfortable & welcoming family home & an ideal base from which to explore West Cornwall. It is situated just outside ths fishing village of Newlyn. A 10 minute stroll along the harbour side will take you into the centre of the village with shops, restaurants & pubs.There are many coastal walks to enjoy & places of interest to visit.

I always answer emails within a few hours & am always available on... Read more
