Self-Catering Reviews

The arrival time at the cottage was delayed apparently due to extra covid cleaning.. ..I doubt any cleaning was ever done. Rubbish under all the beds, including ibuprofen which my children could have got hold of. I cleaned the banister and the wipes were black. No light in upstairs hall working. Lamps in the house not working, Bleach stains on the towels. Broken and loose glass in the bathroom door. Rusty and dirty handles on kitchen cupboards, rusty microwave, dirty fridge seals, table grimey and sticky. Huge cracks near front door. Peeling paint in bunk bed room. List is endless....I have photos and videos for proof. This property is not a 4 star. We were so disappointed we left early.

The cottage was lovely.. Quaint fisherman's cottage with a modern touch but keeping in line with the fact it's a 250 years old cottage. The views, what can we say, just outstanding. View over the harbour and penzance and St Michaels Mount. The cottage has its own parking space which is brilliant. Parking is not great around there. The roads are very narrow. We loved every bit of our holiday. Cottage has central heating. Combi boiler so instant hot water. Sky TV. Wifi. And a lovely kitchen.

We felt very comfotable in this charmy old cottage.. Everything was decorated with love (not like a hotel-room - it was a home). There was a fantastic view out of the living-room, out of the bedroom in first floor (you are able to watch the harbour lying in the bed) and from the little balcony in the second floor. Penzance is next to Newlyn and you are able to walk to the stores there (a Lidl-Market is nearby). We had one week in Kittiwake and traveled for example one day by car to St.Michael Mount, another day to Land's End, one day to nice St. Ives, walked a day 4 miles on the coastel path from Lizard Point to beautiful coves had a longer tour into the Dartmoor (quite nice meeting Dartmoor-Ponys at Hayes Rock) and time ran too fast and we were sad to have to say goodbye.

The location of this house was great! It was a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Newlyn and the beach. There are many places to eat such as the Red Lion Inn (definitely recommend) and Lewis' Fish and Chip Shop plus loads more. Penzance is about 25-30 minutes away and has many useful shops. The beautiful village of Mousehole is only a 45 minute walk away along the stunning coastal path. The house is on a hill overlooking the working harbour of Newlyn. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of utensils and spices. The living room is cozy and has beautiful sea views. The double bedroom on the first floor had a beautiful sea view, as well as the attic room. The attic room has a balcony overlooking the harbour and Mounts Bay. You can even see St Michael's Mount from there! Throughout the house, there is some amazing artwork from local artists with a very beachy theme. It is a very family and pet friendly house and would definitely recommend. It is close to many attractions like St Ives and Lands End. Would definitely return!

Lovely views from all front facing windows, up a very steep hill too, hence the views over the harbour.. Lovely home from Home cottage.

This is a great cottage with very nice sea views and everything you need for a good holiday.. The parking space is easy to get in and out of and we were pleased to find that it is the perfect size for our Mini Cooper.

The one bathroom in the cottage was not at all adequate.. The shower was just a little drip and needs modernising. The kitchen was big and modern. The bedrooms were all adequate with the 2 main rooms having great views. These however, did have signs of damp. It states that towels are provided but one towel per adult and a tiny towel per child is not enough for a week so I would advise to take your own. Hardly any of the doorknobs in the cottage work and the glass on the bathroom door is see through. Now to the parking....there is as stated, a parking space. If you can get to it through the parked cars on the very thin hill. We had to leave the car out on the hill and take our chances 1 night as it was impossible to get to the cottage. On arrival the cottage smelt of damp and there were many spider webs. If the bathroom was modernised and the place was given a good clean and maintained a bit more it would be better. The potential is there. As it is at the moment it's overpriced in my opinion...

this is a very nice cottage well placed in Newlyn very handily placed for the town easy to get to local beauty spots such as St Ives Lands End etc Mousehole a waste of time not worth the petrol Cottage getting a bit sad despite early in season, eg the bathroom door handle hanging off and the down stairs water completely undrinkable we had to resort to bottled water but upstairs ok which is strange we should have been told about this

The description regarding the parking space in the initial advert stated parking for one car however once we had paid and then given further details, this parking space turned into for small vehicles only.. There is a car park some distance away at a further cost of £5.60 per day” I contacted Sykes with my concerns on two occasions and had no response to either. I ended up contacting the owner direct (and was still vague) as to wether our car would fit. The parking space was a definite attraction for this area as we know it to be limited on the road. A few niggles included no tin opener, sky remote didn’t work, tiny courtyard as a thoroughfare so outside enjoyment of bbq not possible and lastly visited in the kitchen by mice on the worktop/ droppings (when we were out) I did leave a note itemising these observations when we left. These are all fairly minor but disappointing in a 4star property.

Kittiwake is a beautiful spacious cottage, very comfortably furnished, beautifully presented, with every possible convenience, the view from the top bedroom balcony is stunning and the owner was really helpful.. Lots of local information on taxi's, pub's and local eateries are provided by the owner in the house manual. Newlyn has a stunning working harbour and quality shops for all the basics - fabulous fish, a great butcher, and baker as well as a co-op supermarket. I think the details online when booking should mention the 1 in 3 hills up from the harbour, and that the cottage access is not suitable for anybody with limited mobility and without a small car. That said we loved the cottage and Newlyn itself.

Kittiwake cottage is in a great location in Newlyn with a fabulous view of the harbour, Equipped to a very high standard and very comfortable. It is also dog friendly which is a real bonus,

Another stay at Kittiwake has been as enjoyable as previous visits.. It is as comfortable a cottage as you could wish to spend a few rainy days in, and on the sunny day? Afternoon tea on the terrace! overlooking one of the best views in Cornwall across Mounts bay to St Michael's Mount with the busy harbour below.

There is a damp issue with the property.. Would not have booked it if we'd known as I'm currently ill with a respiratory problem.

Kittiwake is a wonderful cottage over three floors with fantastic views of Newlyn harbour and Mounts Bay beyond.. It was well equipped, warm and the adjacent parking space was a boon given the limited local road parking. The local area is quaint and interesting - great for wandering and exploring. The instructions and guidance given by the owner were excellent and important to take notice off re access. We would return and recommend to others.

The cottage was cosy and and warm in a chilly February. Lovely views from the picture window in the loft bedroom. Watching the sunrise was spectacular. We took advantage of walking some of the coast path as it was nearby.

The property was a perfect place to spend a week in what can often be unpredictable weather in SW Cornwall - it was warm, comfortable and quiet, with a good TV/WiFi package. The attic terrace gives great panoramic views across Mounts Bay on the sunny days when breakfast or afternoon tea can be taken al fresco.

Loved everything about Kittiwake, the views especially were amazing! Loved how homely it felt as soon as we walked in the door. Really appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the furnishings were of a very high standard.
