The property

This dream detached cottage, with amazing far-reaching sea views is set in the small, picturesque, unspoilt fishing village of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula.

The cottage is ideal for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy a coastal holiday with the village being built on two sides of a spur of rock that juts out into the sea.

With a large, sheltered crescent shaped arc of sand ideal for swimming and watersports only a few minutes’ walk away, this is a very special cottage in a wonderful location.

Tucked away off the main road through the village and approached up a narrow lane, the moment you arrive you know you are at a most relaxing cottage full of character.

Entering with a small snug room on the right with a welcoming woodburner for the cooler evenings, you also have the dining room, kitchen and utility room on the ground floor.

Taking the stairs leads to the most spectacular room in the house, the large sitting room with the most amazing views.

Many a day, whatever the weather, will be spent in this attractive room marvelling at the views and relaxing with a drink in hand.

There are three beautifully-furnished bedrooms here, two king-size double rooms and a twin.

Outside is a most unusual garden with sitting and relaxing options all around, and boasting more outstanding views.

Right from the cottage there are glorious coastal walks, and with the beach so close by days spent without the need for a car are definitely called for.

A stroll down to the Paris Hotel on the harbour offers great local ales and a good choice of food, and along with other fine small restaurants and shops this coastal village offers all you need on a daily basis.

An excellent cottage for a memorable seaside break.

About the location

COVERACK

St Keverne 2 miles; Helston 12 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.

Coverack is a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, a few miles from Lizard Point in Cornwall, the most southerly point on mainland Britain. Coverack is a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the main tourist routes and offers a beach in the sheltered bay, which is ideal for swimming, windsurfing and kayaking, as well as shops, a Post Office, pub and restaurants. The Lizard Peninsula is a large area of spectacular coves and beaches and is noted for its rare geology and plants. From Lizard Point there are wonderful sea views from the windswept cliffs, which provide fabulous walking opportunities along this stretch of the South West Coast Path. Inland is the market town of Helston, known for its Flora Day Festival, and in Gweek is The Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Flambards theme park is just 20 minutes' drive away and just over ten miles away is the Culdrose Airfield, where once a year the public are welcome to come and meet the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Navy’s flying force. Coverack is ideally located for exploring The Lizard Peninsula, as well as the lovely seaside towns of St Ives and Falmouth and many other beaches and pretty villages.
