Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Coverack - Apartment 11 Coverack Headland
A romantic & stylish self-catering rental apartment, recently refurbished.
Looking for an idyllic holiday break for two? My beautiful holiday home near the lovely, unspoiled village of Coverack, Cornwall, could be the answer. 180 degree views of sea, sky and coastline greet you from the wide south facing bay window in the bright sitting room and the large balcony. A path leads down to a private cove with its own sandy beach at low tide. The romantic, stylish south-facing apartment, which is on the first floor of a restored and converted Edwardian Hotel, was completely refurnished in 2009/10. The living room and bedroom have uninterupted southerly sea views and doors opening onto the balcony - perfect for breakfast. Offering, open-plan living in the comfortable sitting room which has a streamlined kitchen area with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, dish-washer, (ground floor laundry) and TV, DVD, Radio/CD, telephone, and free Wi-Fi Broadband. The shower room contains a strikingly modern handbasin, illuminated mirror, shower, shaver socket and heated towel rail.
The bedroom furniture includes a King Size bed with memory mattress, bedside tables, wall lights, mirrors, chest of drawers and radio etc. A full length wardrobe is situated in the hall next to the bedroom.
Double glazing and electric storage heating make the cooler months cosy.
RECENT CHANGES: I have installed all new living room furniture including dining table and chairs, sofa and arm chair. New crockery, cutlery, cooking pans, (updated annually), dishwasher and toaster for the kitchen. The plumbing has been updated including a new Saniflo system and hot water pressure pump. Additionally most of the bed linen is replaced each year. A telescope is provided as well as binoculars. A Samsung 32' TV and Panasonic DVD/Video player are also provided. New living room blinds and balcony chairs. Made to measure curtains in the bedroom and a dressing mirror have also been recently installed.
A utility cupboard in the hall contains all you may possibly need: Iron, Ironing board, hoover, spare light bulbs, small step ladder and even torches in case you take an evening walk.

Why Bryan Tyrrell chose Coverack
For many years we enjoyed holidays in various locations in Cornwall. In 1988 we rented an apartment on Coverack Headland and fell in love with the location, views, peace, walks and the unspoilt nature of the area. We have continued to enjoy our holidays on the Headland ever since. Just after retirement, the apartment we now own came onto the market for sale. We and other owners consider it has possibly the best views of any of the few properties on the Headland.
Whatever the weather, the scenery is always interesting. Sunrise over the sea is beautiful and really encourages you to get out of bed and have breakfast on the balcony. The little fishing boats come out from Coverack Harbour and empty their lobster pots etc., and ships of all sizes pass from time to time. Hawks can be seen hovering, looking for prey and just occasionally you might see a basking shark or seal in the bay below.
What makes this apartment unique
If you enjoy unspoilt areas offering fresh air and relaxation you will have difficulty finding a better location. In good weather, imagine drifting to sleep with the bedroom door to the balcony open and listening to the waves breaking on the shore!
The coastal walks are regarded by many as the best they have enjoyed!
The claim of 180 deg. sea and coastal views from the apartment is true. Not a single roof top or other obstruction in any direction!
Guestbook comments from the owner
'It's November - the waves are crashing onto the dramatic Headland and I'm sitting cosily behind the hugest bay window, taking it all in! Fantastic apartment with everything you could need...I don't usually like going back to the same place twice - this apartment is the exception! - Gill Davis, Farnborough, Hants
'The apartment is beautiful and the views amazing. We had a lovely time and slept better than for ages, thanks to the comfortable bed.' - Dr A Loyal, Bristol.
'What a refreshing break! The apartment had the most stunning views imaginable and was also very peaceful. We walked onto the Headland and stroked the ponies, went down to the beach to swim, walked into the village for lunch at the pub and also tasted the delights of Roskilly's delicious cream teas and Jersey ice cream. The apartment itself was extremely stylish and well-equipped. We would definitely return and recommend.' - W. Isles, Wimbledon, SW London
"This has been one of the best weeks of my life! We loved the view of the village from the balcony in the morning - totally relaxing. At night we sat out under the stars, which was so beautiful. The flat is more than amazing. We are very thankful for the sensational week." - Abdul and Manar, Manchester, March 22. 08.
"We had an excellent break away from it all, so much so that we decided to stay for another day to continue enjoying the apartment and the amazing view." - Debbie and Damian, Bournemouth 28 March, 08
"We have greatly enjoyed our time in Coverack. We could have just sat and looked out of the window the whole time! The walking on the Coastal Path was fantastic and we have really relaxed and recharged our batteries. An experience and a location which we will talk about again and again." - Paul and Chris, Ilfracombe. Feb 24, 08.
"We came here for a rest after a very busy year and have had such a nice, relaxing time. The apartment is fantastic and has everything you could want." - Anne-Marie and Joe, Manchester. 1 December, 07
