  • "A very nice place to stay, very quiet which was ideal for us, with a fantastic view."

    A short downhill walk via footpath to Coverack, which suited us well. Would recommend an on-line Supermarket delivery if you travel without a car, as we did. The only suggested improvement is an extractor fan for the bathroom, but appreciate there is an opening window. Thank you for the biscuits, milk and orange juice on arrival! Very homely with lovely pictures on a coastal theme. Would certainly visit again. Short downhill walk to nearby cove, and lovely coastal walking!

    Thank you for the lovely review David. So far as we know you are the first person to have stayed at Seaview without a car! As the nearest large supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury, Lidl) are around 12 miles away, guests are advised to stock up before arriving - Seaview houses a large fridge freezer. There is however, a local village store which typically stocks milk, bread, eggs and newspapers, amongst many other items. Future guests considering staying without a car, may be interested to know that there is a Go Cornwall Bus app which contains all relevant timetables. At the time of writing it is possible to purchase a 7 day ticket for £25 which covers bus travel anywhere in Cornwall. Property Owner

  • "This cottage is located on the Coverack Headland right on the southwest coast path."

    The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with general kitchen equipment, no washing machine or dishwasher, but we didn’t find that mattered. The lounge is spacious with 2 large sofas and 2 chairs as well as games and TV/dvds. The bedroom had sufficient cupboard space and the electric shower in the bathroom gave good hot water. The cottage welcomes dogs. There is no Wi-Fi but there was reasonable mobile reception. For us though, the great bonus was the incredible location looking out over the sea with great walks in both directions. The large garden of the properties on the headland was also a great plus with strategic wooden benches where you could sit with an early morning tea or an evening beer, gazing out to sea. Would definitely recommend!

    Thank you for your kind review. Your 100% scores are very much appreciated. Seaview's location really is very special. We are so pleased that you have left with happy memories of the spectacular views out to sea. Future guests wishing to use laundry facilities should please note that there is a coin operated washing machine and dryer in the main building. A washing line can be found in the grounds to the rear of Seaview. Thank you once more for your review. We hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future. Rachel and Sean Property Owner

  • "Hi, this property is on the headland with fantastic views immediately in front of the property."

    We were contacted the day before our journey to ensure we had all the arrival details and on arrival there were a frw necessities awaiting for us. This is an excellent base for dog walks and sight seeing, Falmouth, Helston, Penzance just a short drive away. All the fascilities you need are at the property, i would asvice you stop off at the Helston super store and by a few food items you require to avoid running out of items as there are no shops close by. Brilliant location and an excellent base to explore from.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you had a great holiday. I would echo the suggestion of stopping off in Helston before arriving at Seaview. Helston is approximately 12 miles from Seaview and houses large Tesco, Sainsbury's and Lidl stores. We look forward to welcoming Nicholas, and his party, to Seaview in the future. Property Owner

  • "Great property + great location = great holiday."

    The three adults plus two small dogs in our party all have a great time here. Seaview was spotlessly clean on our arrival and had some nice personalised touches that we appreciated. We found the kitchen/dining area a little "compact" but it wasn't a problem as we worked around this easily enough and anyway, it was more than compensated for by the large and comfortable lounge. The bedrooms were well furnished, comfortable and had a good storage space. Worth mentioning that the kitchen was particularly well equipped with all manner of pots, pans, casseroles, knives, dishes etc. There were even two different kinds of vegetable peeler! The nominated parking spaces were a bonus too. Located at the end of a private road, Seaview was quiet yet had amazing panoramic views of the sea that were captivating whether sunny or stormy. It's 50m above sea level so there's a bit of a climb back up from Coverack itself or the small (and almost private) Porthbeer Cove with its mixture rocky/sandy beach. Its only 700m (not the mile quoted in the Sykes listing) by footpath to the lovely Coverack harbour with the excellent (if somewhat pricey) Lifeboat chippie and Paris Hotel. Good coast path walks in both directions right from the door. We toured the area a bit. We enjoyed Loe Bar and Porthleven in rough weather – these can be accessed from car parks in the north of Loe Bar or the NT Penrose Estate. The Spingo beer at the Blue Anchor in Helston was as good as I remember it from 40 years ago and the walk around Lizard Point excellent and sparsely populated once you got 200m from the car parks! Note that Seaview's location is nowhere near that indicated on the Sykes mapping. Exceeded expectations.

    Many thanks for kind and detailed review. We are so pleased that you and your party had such a lovely holiday. The location of Seaview has now been updated, to reflect the property's close proximity to the stunning coastline. Thank you once more. Rachel and Sean Property Owner

    Rachel kindly left us the means of making tea and coffee and some scrumptious biscuits. Amazing walks, hardly any reason to get in the car unless you want to go much further afield. Dogs loved it as much as we did.

  • "We found the house very comfortable and and spotlessly clean."

    excellent location with amazing views but the beach isn't sandy, mostly rocks and boulders, it is a hard and very uneven path down to the beach and a steep climb back. The shower in the bathroom needs attention, we couldn't get any hot water to have a shower and the television needs updating the sound is badly distorted and only has Freeview. When we saw the picture of the house we thought it was in a row of three or four terraced houses but it is in a row with other apartments and the Headland apartments are in front of them but from the Seaview house you have a view of the sea.

    Thank you for your kind words. We take every effort to ensure our guests have an enjoyable stay. The television has now been replaced. We could have advised on how to use the shower had we been informed. Perhaps insufficient time had been allowed for the cold water to run through? To confirm the shower remains in good working order. The walk to Mears Beach is relatively steep, however, the cliff top view hopefully compensates for this. The amount of sand on the beach is usually extensive, as can be seen by googling Mears Beach Cornwall. The amount of sand evident during your stay could have been affected by a recent storm. Seaview is at the end of 3 terrace properties and enjoys stunning views. Thank you once more and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

    Some directions would have helped as the postcode covers a wide area and we had to do a little searching.The accommodation itself was as described and quite comfortable, we were also left tea,coffee,fruit juice and biscuits which was a nice touch.

  • "Coverack is a place that smoothes the soul."

    The walks were exhilarating, some not for the faint hearted, quite challenging, but I loved them. I had been working nights Domicillary End of life care and needed a much needed break. I looked out the bathroom window and cried with happiness at the sea view, (sea view from many windows). It's a safe little haven to rejuvenate then take on the world. Loads of magnificent sculptures on one of the walks are a must find. Highlights the sound of the waves crashing on the pebbles, trickling spring water, sea views, Sun sets across the shimmering sea. I loved it there, thank you xx

    Thank you for your fabulous review, we appreciate you doing this. We are so pleased that Coverack and Seaview gave you the peaceful, rejuvenating break that you needed. We hope that we can welcome you back one day, thank you so much, kind regards Property Owner

    The dogs loved it when we just opened the door and walked down to the cove or onto the headland, so happy and safe. Wonderful views and walks along the cliff path into Coverak and beyond. Lovely little nearby wood and a sculpture park just 5 minute walk. We were greeted with a welcome tray in the comfy lounge and explored the surrounding area each day. Highly recommend.

  • "The location of this property is stunning."

    The Harbour at Coverack is beautiful, the beaches in the area are great. Fantastic base to explore the area. You don't have to drive far to visit nearby beaches. Lifeboat restaurant is wonderful and Paris Hotel is friendly with free pool for kids to play. The property does have an underlying smell of dogs downstairs. The microwave was broken, it didn't turn. I'm guessing a previous rental broke it but didn't report it. The door of the small room at the front was really stiff and jammed shut. It was great to have washing up liquid, tea towels and handwash. Tea, coffee and milk was provided too. Large pack of biscuits were a nice touch to. Front single bedroom had a lovely sea view. It's a quiet complex away from the hustle and bustle. Walkers would love the area, families would love the beach a few mins walk down a steep slope.

The property

Coverack 1 mile.

With magnificent, far-reaching sea views, this beautifully-presented end-terrace cottage is set in the stunning grounds of Coverack Headland on the spectacular Lizard Peninsula, only a short distance away from the unspoilt fishing village of Coverack and its wonderful beach.

Entering the cottage you will sense the homely feel, with a comfortable sitting room and open plan kitchen and dining room.

There are three bedrooms, one double and two singles and a bathroom all on the first floor.

Outside there is a private patio with a picnic table which leads on to the attractive communal grounds, a great spot for a picnic and then down to a sandy beach.

With no WiFi to spoil the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings, this really is a place to relax and unwind.

With wonderful coastal walks in either direction, as well as a delightful path leading down to Coverack, this really is a place to enjoy to the full and appreciate the natural surroundings.

In Coverack itself, a traditional Cornish bar and a choice of restaurants will satisfy all tastes and a short drive away will offer an even wider selection hidden amongst tiny coves and villages that combine to make the Lizard Peninsula such a special destination all year round.

About the location


St Keverne 2.3 miles; Helston 11.6 miles; Falmouth 18.5 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, pub, and restaurants. Further amenities lie in St Keverne, which has a post office, shops and 2 traditional pubs. The Lizard Peninsula has many 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, whilst approximately 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.
