    “The cottage was clean when we arrived but there was mould on the walls in the bedroom which seemed to get worse during out stay (or maybe we noticed it more).”

    For someone with asthma, this isn’t ideal!

    For someone with asthma, this isn’t ideal! The ceiling height was low in many areas, which could have been mentioned in the listing - esp for people with back problems. An amazing location though, would highly recommend for anyone who likes the sea, swimming, walking and stunning views!

    Thank you for flagging the issue of the small mould patch you noticed in one of the bedrooms, we had not been aware of this. On our recent visit a few weeks ago, we had not noticed it, but we will review. On the ceiling height being low in the downstairs of the property, this is now clearly flagged in the property overview on the website. Thank you for you feedback once again. Property Owner

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.

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