    Near the sea in gorgeous village. Poldark country. Fishing village with thatched rooves as if time has stood still. Expansive views. Fishermen go out on their boats daily, it's a sight to see them return with their haul of all sorts of fish; fresh seafood locally. Great beers in friendly pub, with lots of music from days of yore; sea shanties on Fridays and folk music Tuesdays and many Sundays. Beautiful views, fresh air, occasional dolphins and seals in the nearby cove. Crystal clear sea just down the road. Rarely busy. House has lots of amenities. Four double bedrooms and plenty of room. New kitchen and lovely area to sit out to take in the star-filled skies. Large garden, very well kept, a delight. Highly recommended. Visit Cadgwith, you'll never want to leave.

The property

A substantial detached house in an outstanding position a few yards from the sea in the charismatic fishing village of Cadgwith.

Set into the hillside and back from the road, Mengarth has reverse level accommodation to appreciate the sea views.

Inside find spacious dimensions, slate flagstones, wood flooring, wood burner, books, artistic touches, jacuzzi bath and sauna for post cliff top rambles.

On the first floor are the sitting room, kitchen and dining hall plus one bedroom and bathroom.

There are three further bedrooms on the ground floor plus two shower rooms.

Accessed from the kitchen is a patio with furniture while the outlook from the steep terraced garden is unbeatable ( be sure to take care on the steps).

Featured in BBC-TV's Fisherman's Apprentice, Cadgwith is one of the most mesmerising fishing/artist villages in an area of outstanding beauty.

This is a place for all who love the smell of sea air, fresh fish from the boat, rock pool expeditions, cliff top rambles, sea shanties, time with family and friends and good food and beer at the 300 year old smugglers' inn.

Cadgwith could not be lovelier; it is the destination to slow down and unwind, where modern world stresses are shut out.

There is a separate sandy beach for sunbathing and swimming and nearby Kynance Cove, rated as one of the best beaches in the world by the National Trust.

It is also a great launch pad for sailing on the Helford, golfing at Mullion's coastal course and the gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan are simply stunning and Rick Stein's seafood restaurant at nearby Porthleven is epicurean heaven.

The perfect family retreat, Mengarth is a real home from home.

About the location

CADGWITH

Helston 11 miles ; Lizard 3 miles ; Coverack 8 miles.

A traditional fishing village on the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Cadgwith is unspoilt and timeless. Quintessentially Cornish, its narrow streets are lined with former pilchard cellars, higgledy piggledy whitewashed cottages and charming smugglers’ inns. Time here is spent walking the coastal footpath, building sandcastles on the beach and fishing the waters for mackerel. The village is home to a small number of shops including a gift shop, craft shop and a fishmonger’s where you buy delicious crab sandwiches. It also has a lively events calendar, with weekly sea-shanty nights, summer barbecues, a regatta and a fortnightly fishing competition. The market town of Helston is around 20 minutes away by car; here you will find an excellent farmers’ market on the first Saturday of the month – a great place to pick up some local produce for your stay.
