Set in an elevated position, just off the road in the seaside fishing port of Newlyn, this traditional fisherman's cottage boasts some beautiful features including wooden floorboards, original ornamental fireplaces and characterful ceilings. Lowenhe (Cornish for happy and delightful) is a perfect combination of Cornish charm, contemporary comfort, with a welcoming and relaxing feel throughout - a real home-from-home.
Walking through the garden gate (up six granite steps) taking in the fresh sea air and sound of the gulls overhead, you immediately get the sense you're on holiday. Step into the hallway complete with original floor tiles and enter the open plan living area. It is a welcoming and social space; a small step leads into the light and airy kitchen which is the perfect place for cooking up a feast with the local catch of the day, or why not cosy up in front of the wood-burner with a good book or movie.
Ideal for couples or small families alike, we won't leave out your four-legged friend as doggies are most welcome at Lowenhe.
Up the stairs, which are narrow and steep in places (very common in character Cornish cottages, especially on the small landing), the bedrooms are furnished with coastal blues, calm creams and greys and combine this with the quality bedding, you are sure to have a good night's sleep. The stylish bathroom has a wonderful roll-top bath which is just the perfect spot for a long soak after a day's activities.
Outside the property there is a lovely terrace which has the most amazing view of the busy fishing harbour below - where better to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine, watching the fishing boats come and go as the sun moves over the iconic St Michael's Mount.
Among all the pretty towns and villages of west Cornwall, Newlyn feels the most authentic. To this very day, it remains home to one of the biggest fishing fleets in the UK and as such gives a unique insight into a proper Cornish fishing port. You can buy fish and seafood straight from the boats, or from one of the many fishmongers dotted along the street.
Newlyn is fantastic to visit at any time of year and is helped by some rather fabulous eateries including Mackerel Sky, a laid back wine bar serving the most delicious fish dishes, the Tolcarne Inn with its Michelin starred chef and the amazing cinema 'The Newlyn Filmhouse'. Created from an old fish merchants store, you could be forgiven for thinking you're in a city, with the fantastic bar and gorgeous eclectic interiors.
The quaint village of Mousehole is within walking distance. It's only a mile and a half away and a stunning walk along the coastal road.
Many famous artists have taken inspiration from Newlyn, and art lovers should visit the Newlyn Art Gallery, enjoy a leisurely mooch around the gallery followed by a delicious Cornish cream tea in the cafe afterwards overlooking Newlyn green.
Around this area there are many wonderful walks from Newlyn. The coastal path to Lamorna is one of the prettiest you will find anywhere in Cornwall. There is also a good bus service from the town which can help you explore the area as well. The open top bus is a fun experience from Newlyn taking you all around the peninsula.
If you can try and take in a trip to the world famous Minack Theatre, dramatically perched on the cliffs above Porthcurno, it's well worth a visit and even more magical if you can see a production or concert whilst there, but don't forget to take a warm snuggly blanket as it can get very chilly.
Oozing with traditional charm, Lowenhe provides modern living in timeless surroundings, and is the perfect choice for a couple or small family looking for coastline fun, within walking distance of the town and sea.
