    • “Perfect in Every Way”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Our stay at 'The Dairy' has been the most awesome family holiday. The apartment is finished to an exceptional standard with a high spec kitchen and all the essential tech to keep the city slicker on retreat happy. The decor is sharp, relaxing and modern but sympathetic to the rustic roots of the property. Views of the garden and wooded boundary make sure you feel connected to the surroundings wherever you sit to relax and the outside seating area catches the sun up until early sunset. Everything about the property has been thought through to provide guests the best possible experience and is lovingly maintained by the owners. If you do have any need for anything the owners Rachel and Howard who live on site are only too pleased to help you out it is their passion for the area and the property which seeps through to all the details inside and out. Fresh eggs can be delivered to your door from their hens and wood fire logs are at hand to use in the log fires or to have a barbecue. The location of the Dairy/Farmhouse is perfect for exploring the Lizard Peninsula and West Cornwall. There are so many beautiful coves and beaches nearby that we didn't venture further than St Michaels Mount. The home is situated on a quiet lane off the main road (which in itself is a 'B' road) and is only a short drive from the town of Helston, making it secluded enough to not hear cars whizzing about but close enough to get everything you could need. We found Tesco, Sainsbury and Lidl at Helston. As parents of a child with severe anaphylaxis multiple food allergies booking holidays requires a number of criteria to be met. This holiday booking met them all with flying colours. The holiday was so great that not only are we looking to book again here but also seriously considering a move to this region in the future.”

    Dr Broome, Warwick, October 2015

    • “The Dairy was a lovely relaxing place to stay. The garden was a real sun trap & was sheltered from the wind. The owners were very welcoming & friendly but also respected our privacy. A great base for exploring the local area. We would definitely like to return.”

    Miss Powell, Bristol, June 2015

    • “A character property with simple modern comforts of high quality.”

    Ms Beaumont, Reading, February 2015

    • “The position, within walking distance to the coast, was very good. The cottage was very pleasant and we were made very welcome on arrival with home made flapjacks, fresh eggs, milk and flowers. The private garden was large with good garden furniture and a large summer house.”

    Mrs Young, Blackburn, January 2015

    • “The good quality equipment throughout made self catering easy and enjoyable.”

    Mr Bott, Worcester, November 2014

    Mr Brockwell, Llandudno, October 2014

    • “We liked the fact it was quiet as we wanted somewhere we could relax. Great knowing the owners were there if you needed them but nice they left us to enjoy our holiday. We thought the flapjacks, eggs, tea coffee and milk was very welcoming, it was just really lovely and quiet - just what we wanted!”

    Mr Jepson, Rickmansworth, October 2014

    • “Absolutely amazing!”

    Miss Fisher, Atherstone, September 2014

    • “On arrival the owners met us and made us feel very welcome. The property was excellent as it was very clean and we could not have wished for better. The walk along cliffs to Covorack was wonderful and a highlight of our week.”

    Mr Bone, Gosport, July 2014

    • “We had wonderful days at the Dairy and our hosts were incredibly service oriented; they gave very good advice on what places, gardens and restaurants we should visit, which was very valuable to us as we were only there a few days. We have never had this service at any other accommodation around the world! We will definitely stay here again; we can really recommend this accommodation to others.”

    Mr Thorsson, Taby, July 2014

    • “We found the property to be very comfortable and furnished with everything you would need. We really appreciated the little extra personal touches provided by the owners.”

About the location


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.
