Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, this end terraced cottage in Newlyn in Cornwall is an ideal Cornish base.
Mermaid Cottage is a cosy end terraced cottage just a moments stroll from the beach, opposite the art gallery in Newlyn. There are two double bedrooms, and a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. The fitted kitchen has a breakfast area, while the sitting room has an electric fire and leads to the dining room.
Outside is a small enclosed courtyard, and parking is available in the public car park 100 yards away. With St Michaels Mount and Newlyn on the doorstep, and the rest of the area within easy reach, Mermaid Cottage makes a wonderful Cornish base.

Outdated, grubby, but location is fab The location of Mermaid Cottage is the best thing about it. Very close to the sea and a small pebble to sand beach. Newlyn has numerous eateries, a few small shops, lots of pubs and an easy walk to both Penzance and Mousehole and also served by a couple of bus routes.
The cottage is in bad condition, poorly maintained, damp and generally scruffy. Beds are not comfortable, kitchen barely usable.
The best way to describe it would be a grandparents house stuck in the 1970's. All mod cons then but nothing has been improved or maintained. Shower good but mouldy shower curtain hung from a precarious contraption. Net curtain in bathroom torn. Sticky note in windowsill with faded writing, obviously been there a long time and cleaned around.
One bed was extremely soft, the other rockhard. Bed lined cheap and very well used, tiny towels with no body to them. Every cupboard opened smelled of damp and long forgotten dusty something indescribable.
Stairs felt rickety and the edging strip sharp and hard on bare feet. The carpets are frayed at the threshold. Flimsy, grubby hand made curtains finish the delightful ambience.
Not Cornwall's finest. Good job the sun shone and we can have a good time and not be bothered by material things. Beware and book only if you need somewhere convenient and you can cope with a lot less than perfect. 66SarahT 2019-09-15
Lovely little cottage. Lovely, cosy little cottage with everything in it my sister and I could?ve needed. Very close to shops, eateries, a pharmacy and bus stops. Only steps away from the sea and promenade walk to Penzance. Fabulous sea view out of the main bedroom window. Beds are comfortable with plenty of bedding and pillows. The reason I have only given it 3 stars is twofold. First and foremost, there is no WiFi. Yes, I know we coped without it in the past but we also coped without cars and buses! Unfortunately, Wifi is the thing everyone is using today: for information, communication etc. We were told we could get the password from the Art Gallery very near to the cottage, which we did but it did not work. Secondly, the cottage desperately needs decorating and updating. It's a bit gloomy with the dark furniture and smelled very musty despite us having windows and doors open a lot. None of this, however, spoiled our holiday. jimboEngland 2018-08-25
Quirky cosy cottage in need of some updating, great location for exploring the area Quirky cosy cottage, has a lovely feel to it but in need of updating especially kitchen and bathroom. Very comfy bed and views over the sea from the bedroom.
Had a problem with the hot water but the owners resolved this as soon as they could, these things happen. Cottage as
Also in need of a deep clean. Location perfect for exploring the area and lovely to step out of the front door and be on the beach for dog walks.
Some traffic noise. Jnccrl 2017-10-02
We particularly liked the location of Mermaid Cottage and its very distinct style it feels more like someones home rather than a holiday cottage. Ms Pearson 2016-02-22
