You'd have to be made of stone or dried-up lawn clippings not to love every single little nook and cranny (of which their are many) of this truly lovely little sea-side cottage. The cottage itself is a charming treasure-trove of things to discover and delight in - from a brilliantly eclectic collection of art and ceramics, to lovely little cookbooks tucked into corners and drawers - and finished with a superbly kitted-out little kitchen (two aeropresses!) in which you can easily cook meals from the liberal amount of fresh Cornish produce you find a step away from your front door. I mean, really the cottage is literally right on the doorstep of brilliant little restaurants and pubs and shops and a stone's-throw from the water's edge. This has quite simply been my favourite airbnb stay to date. Also, Gordon has an *excellent* list of advice and Things to Do which is definitely worth your attention. Thank you so much.

Dear Jono, So happy to read you loved the cottage as much as we do! You're always welcome back. Come stay in December when all the Christmas lights are up: a true fairyland. Best Gord.

Herbert cottage is a perfect Cornish hideaway. Filled with eclectic artwork and decorative pieces it oozes charm and coziness. The spatial design of the cottage is well-planned and the ample lounge space and conservatory are perfect for whiling away the hours as the Cornish storms pass. We enjoyed our time immensely and hope to return soon!

Herbert's Cottage is a lovely space for relaxing and using as a base to explore the West Penwith Pensinsula. It has everything you need to hand both in the cottage itself and in Newlyn; the bus stop is practically outside the door! We didn't meet Gord but his comms have been so good throughout that I feel we have! Thanks!

Fisherman's Cottage is definitely the place to stay in Newlyn. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. Really nice garden to wind down in and the people are all friendly. Its a good location to see the South West of Cornwall, we had some glorious days out in wonderful weather.

Great cottage in a perfect Newlyn location. The cottage is very comfortable and characterful, filled with beautiful art, and is in a great location set back from the road. We really enjoyed Newlyn which has a small selection of delicious restaurants, cafes, art galleries, fish mongers etc. Gord's itinerary before we arrived was very helpful and the coastline around that area is just beautiful. Would recommend.
