  • "Absolutely wonderful stay here!"

    We have stayed before in 2014. Love the surrounding gardens and being able to sit and watch the birds over my morning cuppa! The showers weren't overly hot and I was a bit disappointed that the dishwasher was no longer insitu. The property allowed for a wonderful break with very welcoming feeling and we will be back again! Thank you for a wonderful break!

    Both showers need a good clean . Considering COVID there was no soap in the property .General cleanliness was not up to standard.

  • "Little trevean - one word - WOW!"

    ! This prooerty is just beautiful! The house is very well equipped and very clean! The milk, biscuits and coffee /tea left for us by the owners was a really nice touch and very welcome after a long journey! The garden is stunning and so tranquil! To sit and have morning coffee, reading a book and all you can hear is bee’s buzzing and birds singing is the most beautiful way to start the Day! Our dog sonny loved exploring the grounds as did my 16 years old daughter! We come to Cornwall every year and this is by far the most wonderful place we have stayed. The setting is perfect and the location lends itself to exploring a truly stunning part of cornwall. We will definitely be coming back to this most fantastic property! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to share this stunning home! Will be booking again very soon! Barbara

    We absolutely loved the place. Ideally situated for us, as we gravitate to this area of Cornwall every year. The cottage itself was well equipped with parking and we particularly loved watching the bird life. Thank you!

  • "The water supply is quaint but inadequate - not fit for purpose."

    Numerous small flying bugs, probably cloths moths is bedrooms. Even though the fire was nice and the garden was great, the water and bug problems, together with poor decoration (evidence damp patch on the wall) result in my negative opinion.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are sorry to hear of the issues you experienced during your stay. The problem you describe with the water was due to a partially blocked filter and a call to the caretaker would have swiftly resolved this at the time. The Owners have stayed at the property since your visit and have not noticed any insects. The minor damp problem in the bedroom wall was caused by a defective chimney which has since been repaired and the wall redecorated. Property Owner

  • "This is a truly lovely house, we're talking "dream home" level, surrounded by stunning gardens."

    The beds were comfortable, the showers were powerful and spacious, the kitchen was really well equipped. The gardens are this property's selling point though, with different areas to explore and relax in. The garden furniture is great - comfortable and portable, meaning we could move around the garden and sit in different areas chasing the sun or taking in a new view. I loved all the birdfeeders and it was lovely to watch all the birds using them. The garden is not secure though and there are places where wire fences have been trampled and flattened, a bit of a concern when you have a dog as we had to be especially vigilant, especially as the estate next door is a working farm. Otherwise this is a great property, and it was a pleasure to stay.

  • "This was a most relaxing break within a very pleasant position and house."

    We would certainly recommend this property as it lacked for nothing. The only criticism we had was the fact that the email informing us of the key location and telephone numbers to ring, stated that towels would be provided. We arrived and had no towels but they were very quickly provided. Conflicting information given, bit of a rocky start but all was well as we had a really good break.

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.
