Renowned for the Newlyn School of Art, which was established here in the late 19th century, Newlyn remains a charming harbourside town with its own Cornish fishing fleet.

The town’s life continues to revolve around the sea, with fishing playing a central role in its day-to-day activities. Fishing boats regularly set sail, whether for a single day or extended weeks, and return to port, where the early-morning fish market buzzes with activity as the catch makes its way to the kitchens of some of the nation’s most renowned chefs.

NEWLYN, By Stephens + Stephens

Newlyn, despite its close proximity of just a mile along the coast from Penzance, can well and truly claim distinctiveness and independence from its larger neighbour.

Art has deeply embedded itself in the town’s heritage. From the late 19th to the early 20th century, a vibrant ‘Newlyn School’ of art thrived, leaving an enduring legacy that continues to influence the town’s architecture and cultural scene.

Newlyn’s community, though small, is a vibrant and distinctive one. Thanks to its accessibility via the A30 and proximity to Penzance station, it is more easily reached than one might initially assume when looking at the map.

Our Newlyn Developments

Want to sample the Newlyn life for yourself? Check out our stunning development, Hightide.

High Tide is set back from Chywoone, one of Newlyn’s characteristically steep hills which wind all the way up from the harbour.

From a distance it’s hard to see the space High Tide has, but behind stone walls and mature growth are deceptively ample grounds for these five three-storey homes. Newlyn looks not just out to sea but back across the beautiful crescent sweep of the bay, past Penzance to St Michael’s Mount.
