    “Excellent apartment, particularly for the views.”

    It was clean and tidy and a very comfortable stay. Two flights of stairs were a bind at times but then you looked out the window and all was forgiven. If I was being being picky there would be three things I would mention. No welcome pack - the shop shuts early and it wouldn't cost much to leave a pint of milk so a cup of tea could be had on arrival, all we got were some half dead flowers no doubt left by the previous occupants. The second point would be the dirty windows on the outside, ...

    It was clean and tidy and a very comfortable stay. Two flights of stairs were a bind at times but then you looked out the window and all was forgiven. If I was being being picky there would be three things I would mention. No welcome pack - the shop shuts early and it wouldn't cost much to leave a pint of milk so a cup of tea could be had on arrival, all we got were some half dead flowers no doubt left by the previous occupants. The second point would be the dirty windows on the outside, and thirdly the size of the bathroom. They are very picky points and they wouldn't stop me staying again.

    Your feedback is very much appreciated and after speaking with the owner, please see her reply "Thank you for your review, and I am glad you had a comfortable stay. I must say you are not being at all picky to mention the lack of a welcome tray, as in fact one is supposed to be provided, and I am upset that it wasn’t. Our housekeeping company has apologised for the oversight and explained that they had had to use a stand-in agency on a couple of occasions recently. They have reiterated our requirements to them." - Sykes owner relations

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, 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.
