    “I was only a bit stressed about the main door sorry.”

    The keypad to enter the code is extremely low down and buttons not very easy when you have luggage and if you're tall!! Coupled with the fact I had the wrong no for some reason meant I was outside struggling for about an hour before someone came to rescue me. But it's such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay it made up for it! ...

    The keypad to enter the code is extremely low down and buttons not very easy when you have luggage and if you're tall!! Coupled with the fact I had the wrong no for some reason meant I was outside struggling for about an hour before someone came to rescue me. But it's such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay it made up for it! It was a shame I couldn't use the washing machine to replenish my muddy walking gear. The workmen were there and had it all taped off and dug up? Thank you ***Owner Response*** Dear Ms Davies, I am glad you enjoyed the beauty and peace of the place, which we still love after many years. I am sorry though that the keypad was low for you. I have been in touch with the managing company, who intend to refurbish the porch area after the holiday season, and they have said that they will address this as part of the work. They have also informed us that the work that was being carried out on the communal laundry area during your stay is expected to be finished by early June 2019. I do apologise that it was not accessible for you though. I’m sorry you had a problem with the number: I did check the code that the holiday company sent out, but this was correct.

The property

A sensational clifftop setting with stunning sea views from all windows, this second floor apartment is within the former Coverack Headland Hotel, built in the Edwardian era.

It is situated on Chynhalls Point on the unspoilt Lizard peninsula close to the fishing village of Coverack, on the south coast of Cornwall.

Couples will love a stroll through the attractive gardens and grounds, a game or two on the outdoor tennis court and a meander down the footpath access to a private sandy beach.

This romantic getaway has a lovely bedroom where you can wake to the wonderful views then wander into the open plan kitchen and lounge area and rustle up a culinary delight whilst overlooking the turquoise waters below.

Gannet Watch is a great nature watching spot, see if you can find the seals in the waters below or watch the gannets feeding.

View the stunning night time vistas (there is very little light pollution) from the sitting room through the telescope or sit back on the comfortable sofas and simply unwind with an evening tipple.

Coverack is just half a mile away with its art gallery, shops, local pub and eateries.

Here you can enjoy sandy and shingle beaches – why not try your hand at windsurfing lessons, a deep-sea fishing trip or just relax in the sunshine.

Well placed from which to explore all that this very special location has to offer, a day out to Kynance Cove, recently voted one of the best beaches in the world, is within easy driving distance and well worth the trip.

Or why not visit Trebah Gardens and admire manicured grounds and the many exotic plants on show.

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.
