    Cobbled alleyways

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Newlyn has long been a fishing community. Walking around the village reveals hidden, twisting alleyways of tiny, fishermens cottages.
    My friends live on this lane and inside their narrow house is tiny, containing one open plan living room and kitchen and two small bedrooms on the upper floor.
    I can't help wondering how the fishermen and their, often large, families coped with the cramped living conditions.
    If you make your way to upper Newlyn it is quite interesting to explore these cobbled mazes. Some carrying plaques denoting a famous resident or event that lived or took place within the thick whitewashed walls.

    Walks

    There are beautiful walks all along the coast. The cycle path continues through Newlyn, joining the road at some points. After Newlyn village the beach turns stoney and then rocky. If you are able it is worth leaving the path and clambering over the rocks to investigate the rock pools at low tide. You can find mussels, baby crab, shrimp, fish, mollascs and other species here and my kids can spend whole days in the summer enjoying their latest discoveries.
    At Penlee Lifeboat house you need to scrabble upward onto the road, then back down the other side of the building to return to the beach; alternatively you can follow the cyclepath / road until you reach the stonesteps leading down to the beach. The coastline becomes more spectacular the nearer you get to Mousehole.
