    “Damp in the bedrooms needs sorting and new carpets need to be fitted.”

    Some sharp bits on the stairs as tacks were exposed where carpet no longer sticks. These were the only issues, we found it a Lovely cottage and great location.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for your stay at April Cottage. We have taken time to address the points you have raised. Unfortunately it has been exceptionally wet and stormy here recently but we have taken action to eradicate any signs of damp in the cottage and stop it reoccurring in the future. We also have plans to replace the flooring in the cottage after a busy summer season. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back again in the future.

About the location


St Keverne 2.3 miles; Helston 11.6 miles; Falmouth 18.5 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. Further amenities lie in St Keverne, which has a post office, shops and 2 traditional 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, whilst approximately 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.

Note: The garden is accessed via 22 steep steps.
Note: There are areas in the downstairs of the property with limited ceiling height
