A little over two miles from the fishing village of Coverack on the Cornish Lizard Peninsula, Little Treleaver Cottage, lies at the end of a country track, amidst open fields and countryside in the peaceful, rural hamlet of Ponsongath.
A whitewashed detached cottage with an enormous grassy lawn garden and children’s play frame, this cottage is a welcome retreat for families seeking a coastal cottage with plenty of space for rest and relaxation after spending days exploring or building sandcastles on nearby beaches.
Step through into the humble entrance into a wonderful modern interior, the entrance hall leading into a smartly furnished open plan kitchen and dining room, with oak floors and a piano to serenade diners or a fun family sing song.
A separate sitting room offers a cosy retreat for the family to unwind and for cooler evenings relax in front of the wood burning stove.
A patio door leads out to the garden, allowing children to come and go freely.
There is a useful ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room also accessed from the sitting room.
Also on the ground floor a large family bathroom.
Stairs lead to the first floor and the other two remaining bedrooms a king-size double and bunk room with a 4” lower bed.
There is a useful WC on this floor.
Outside the lawn garden is open with hedgerows giving the feeling of a countryside location, and there is only one close neighbour.
The village of Coverack has a popular pub The Paris Inn, some super cafes and a good village store and café selling local produce.
The beach and shoreline are ideal for families, with soft shallow waters and rock pools.
The nearest beach with RNLI lifeguards can be found at Kennack another firm family favourite, or across the coast to Poldhu where you will find a great beach café, paddleboard and surf hire and surf tuition.
The beauty spot of Kynance Cove is just over 10 miles and well worth a trip, the exquisite scenery and beautiful beach used in the filming of the Poldark series.

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, 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.
