Newlyn holiday cottages – holiday on the Coast of Cornwall
Newlyn is a town right in the southwest of England, Cornwall, and is the southernmost town in the UK. Technically, it falls under the Penzance civil parish, but as a tourist destination, it has a lot of charm in its own right, and a Newlyn holiday rental is a nice way of not just seeing but living some of the town's charm. For people who are passionate about all things to do with fish, this is definitely the town to visit. Newlyn has a long history of fishing and it is still one of the main industries, very much alive today. Leave your Newlyn holiday rental early in the morning to see evidence of this in the form of the Newlyn Fish Market. Indeed, choose a holiday cottage in Newlyn in August and take part in the Newlyn Fish Festival.
From fresh fish & festivals to amazing art
In the late 19th century, there was an artistic movement in the town known as the Newlyn School. Artists were trained by Stanhope Forbes and Walter Langley who followed the style of the French plein air movement. This post-impressionist movement was varied, with artists focusing on the darker sides of life, as well as peasant hardships, as well as some artists depicting the lighter side of community life. Newlyn's beauty was certainly food for inspiration and a look at many of the paintings can really take you places. Stay in a Newlyn holiday home and you can experience the town that has provided so much inspiration for real. There are two galleries showcasing some of Newlyn's exquisite art history, both very closeby in Penzance.
As well as of course Penzance, there are many places worth visiting nearby. Something worthwhile is a visit or even stay in Mousehole, which is not far away from Newlyn.
