  • "The cottage was clean when we arrived but there was mould on the walls in the bedroom which seemed to get worse during out stay (or maybe we noticed it more)."

    For someone with asthma, this isn’t ideal! The ceiling height was low in many areas, which could have been mentioned in the listing - esp for people with back problems. An amazing location though, would highly recommend for anyone who likes the sea, swimming, walking and stunning views!

    Thank you for flagging the issue of the small mould patch you noticed in one of the bedrooms, we had not been aware of this. On our recent visit a few weeks ago, we had not noticed it, but we will review. On the ceiling height being low in the downstairs of the property, this is now clearly flagged in the property overview on the website. Thank you for you feedback once again. Property Owner

  • "Had a great holiday, and loved the cottage."

    Beautiful spot and lovely village. Would probably avoid if you have a dog that would bark every time someone walks past the window. Not a criticism as it’s wasn’t a problem but with the village shop and bakery opposite and the pub 200 yards away worth considering if that is you.

    We really couldn't have asked for more or wanted more. We were very sad to leave and are already planning a return trip.

  • "We needed to contact the caretaker."

    Mobile signal is poor and a landline is provided. It didn't work. There had been a power cut and the oven needed to be re-set to function. There were no oven instructions available and it took a while to sort this out. The central heating was set set to a high temperature and again there were no instructions on how to operate the thermostat to adjust this and turn the heating off. Otherwise, the cottage was clean and comfortable, and once we had sorted these problems out, we had a good time. The village was pleasant and there were a couple of decent places to eat, such as The Bay Hotel, The Lifeboat House Restaurant and Harbour Lights Cafe. The village shop opposite the cottage sells a good range of stuff, and you can also have tea, coffee and cakes there which were good.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at April Cottage, we have spoken to the owner who has confirmed the issues with the broadband and landline at the house have now been fully resolved by the service provider. Property Owner

  • "Loved the location, cottage was spotlessly clean, and well equipped."

    Coverack had everything we were looking for, we didn't get back in the car until it was, sadly, time to go home. Forgot to check head height though, my fault. Poor partner came home with a few extra lumps and bumps on his head!

  • "There were two areas that where difficult from our stay at April Cottage."

    The parking -this area is very attractive for day visitors and the designated car parks were full on arrival to the area. Parking between 1st June to August 31st is restricted and although many did not observe this aspect, we did! The little garden at the back of the cottage was a little over grown and would benefit from a regular tidy up, especially to allow access to the rear paths across the cliff to Village Hall and towards the church. This garden is most unsuitable for anyone who is restricted in walking and movement! The cottage is delightful and well equipped. Very comfortable and located across from the village store which serves fresh pastries every morning- All very good.

    Thank you for completing our feedback form, this has helped to outline a few issues that we have updated on our website to ensure that the property is sold as it should be. Property Owner

    Very well equipped and really clean. The welcoming cream tea with homemade sones that greeted us on our arrival was a lovely touch.

    Beds were comfortable, water hot, kitchen well appointed, washing machine and dishwasher. Excellent location for the beach, harbour, general stores, coffee shops, hotel/pub/restaurant and chippy. Upstairs windows to back garden would have benefitted from child locks but otherwise awesome. Thank you x

  • "The cottage is in a gorgeous village, and a great location."

    The property had lots of little issues. We were unable to watch tv due to there being no signal, contacted the owner but still no joy, the bathroom sink leaked every time it was filled, the door handle kept falling off the bathroom door, lightbulbs out, and the cottage was unclean and very dusty.***Owners response***Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at April Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests. We were very sorry to hear you experienced difficulty using the newly installed satellite TV, our housekeeper advised on how to obtain signal for the TV, when she did not hear from you again it was assumed the problems were resolved. We have now extended the written instructions that are left at the cottage. We were very surprised to hear of the other issues mentioned following our annual inspection the previous week where no such problems were found. The feedback we receive for April Cottage is overwhelmingly positive and we are confident that any issues highlighted are a one off.

  • "We had a lovely holiday at April Cottage."

    It was very cosy, and more than enough room for myself, my mother and my 13 year old daughter. Coverack was stunning, and we had amazing sunny weather, so lots of walks to the beach , church, handy shops, and enjoying the views. I would say that the bathroom is a bit tired and needs attention, but overall we had a lovely holiday.

  • "Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at April Cottage."

    Great location, spacious and well equipped. We all really enjoyed the cream tea which was left for our arrival. We travelled to Coverack by bus. Shop opposite closes at 17:00 and not open on Sunday, so recommend shopping before unpacking if arriving on the 16:25 bus :-) Went on some lovely walks to St. Keverne and Kennack Sands. Children had great fun with kayaking and stand up paddle and also enjoyed jumping from the harbour wall when the tide was in. Delicious fish and chips and pizza. Missed out on the local pasties - need to get there early to avoid them being sold out. Would definitely recommend the cottage and hope to return there again one day. One negative - would have been good to have a recycling box - only a rubbish bin was available.

  • "Great location right in the hub of the village."

    Elizabeth’s pasty shop two doors away, lovely home made food. Well stocked general shop opposite, harbour fish n chips and the Paris hotel, for real ale. A little slice of heaven. One warning, in June, seagulls young are nesting on the roof, and the parents are very protective, so back garden is a no go area. It is their home after all. Looking forward to going back soon.

  • "The house was very clean and on the whole comfortable."

    A great central location close to harbour and beach. However, I would have expected to have cleaning stuff available, particularly toilet cleaner, a basic for a house of 6 for a week. The garden access was difficult, it needed cutting back to be able to get up the steep steps. The garden furniture had seen better days. The shower in the main bathroom needs some maintenance. The shower head holder is tied up with string! The instructions for bins could be clearer. Our outside bin was full when we arrived and there wasn’t a recycling box available that we could find.

    This is a 6 bed cottage with only 5 comfortable chairs/couches to sit on and when the weather is poor it's dreadful to sit on a dining chair all night The small yard could have done with a good brush OR a brush and we would have happily brushed The rest of the cottage was nice and warm

The property

In the heart of Coverack, one of Cornwall's prettiest villages, just a stone's throw from the beach and harbour is April Cottage.

This idyllic 18th century cottage has been beautifully renovated to blend seamlessly original charm with stylish, modern comforts.

Well suited for simply relaxing, the warm and inviting sitting room has pretty window seats and a wood burner sits within the huge stone inglenook.

The smart kitchen features exposed stone walls, a useful utility area and a door which leads to the garden.

On the first floor are four attractive bedrooms: a king size double with sea views and an en suite shower-room.

A second double and two single rooms share a family bathroom.

Outside, from the elevated terraced garden, which has a decked area with table, chairs and a BBQ, are super sea views and a gate leading to the Coast Path.

Within the village are a little harbour and a beach with low-tide sand.

Nearby, it is possible to try your hand at windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing.

Further afield, the seal sanctuary at Gweek, and the larger town of Helston with its family theme park are both great ways to spend a day.

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, pub and restaurants. St Keverne (4 miles from Poldowrian) has a Post Office, shops and 2 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. 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.
