    • “We had a lovely holiday at April Cottage. It was very cosy, and more than enough room for myself, my mother and my 13 year old daughter. Coverack was stunning, and we had amazing sunny weather, so lots of walks to the beach , church, handy shops, and enjoying the views. I would say that the bathroom is a bit tired and needs attention, but overall we had a lovely holiday.”

    Mrs Partlett, Carterton, October 2018

    • “Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at April Cottage. Great location, spacious and well equipped. We all really enjoyed the cream tea which was left for our arrival. We travelled to Coverack by bus. Shop opposite closes at 17:00 and not open on Sunday, so recommend shopping before unpacking if arriving on the 16:25 bus :-) Went on some lovely walks to St. Keverne and Kennack Sands. Children had great fun with kayaking and stand up paddle and also enjoyed jumping from the harbour wall when the tide was in. Delicious fish and chips and pizza. Missed out on the local pasties - need to get there early to avoid them being sold out. Would definitely recommend the cottage and hope to return there again one day. One negative - would have been good to have a recycling box - only a rubbish bin was available.”

    Mrs Bates, CARDIFF, July 2018

    • “Great location right in the hub of the village. Elizabeth’s pasty shop two doors away, lovely home made food. Well stocked general shop opposite, harbour fish n chips and the Paris hotel, for real ale. A little slice of heaven. One warning, in June, seagulls young are nesting on the roof, and the parents are very protective, so back garden is a no go area. It is their home after all. Looking forward to going back soon.”

    Mr Humphries, BRISTOL, June 2018

    • “The house was very clean and on the whole comfortable. A great central location close to harbour and beach. However, I would have expected to have cleaning stuff available, particularly toilet cleaner, a basic for a house of 6 for a week. The garden access was difficult, it needed cutting back to be able to get up the steep steps. The garden furniture had seen better days. The shower in the main bathroom needs some maintenance. The shower head holder is tied up with string! The instructions for bins could be clearer. Our outside bin was full when we arrived and there wasn’t a recycling box available that we could find.”

    Mr Quinan, Wantage, May 2018

    • “This is a 6 bed cottage with only 5 comfortable chairs/couches to sit on and when the weather is poor it's dreadful to sit on a dining chair all night The small yard could have done with a good brush OR a brush and we would have happily brushed The rest of the cottage was nice and warm”

    Ms Evans, Warrington, March 2018

    • “The cottage is in a gorgeous village, and a great location. The property had lots of little issues. We were unable to watch tv due to there being no signal, contacted the owner but still no joy, the bathroom sink leaked every time it was filled, the door handle kept falling off the bathroom door, lightbulbs out, and the cottage was unclean and very dusty.***Owners response***Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at April Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests. We were very sorry to hear you experienced difficulty using the newly installed satellite TV, our housekeeper advised on how to obtain signal for the TV, when she did not hear from you again it was assumed the problems were resolved. We have now extended the written instructions that are left at the cottage. We were very surprised to hear of the other issues mentioned following our annual inspection the previous week where no such problems were found. The feedback we receive for April Cottage is overwhelmingly positive and we are confident that any issues highlighted are a one off.”

    Mrs Bennett, Telford, October 2018

Regional Information

COVERACK 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.
