    “April cottage had everything that we needed for a weeks stay and was very comfortable.”

    The kitchen facilities were plentiful and the two fridges and freezers very helpful. Washing machine and washing line great. The garden shed door was not accessible as lock rusted shut so could not get to BBQ. Very handy being opposite the village shop and within walking distance of the Paris Hotel and the Bay Hotel where we had dinner.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback. I will take a look at the lock rust on the garden shed to get it resolved. So pleased you had a lovely stay at the cottage and enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

About the location

COVERACK

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
