Make a holiday rental home or self catering cottage in Cadgwith, Cornwall your home away from home

Cadgwith is a pretty village and fishing port (Cadgwith Cove) situated on the Lizard Peninsular near Coverack in Cornwall. Fishing was initiated to subsidise the livelihoods of the local farmers and there is still a small fleet of crabbing boats, but today, the area makes its living as a holiday destination. The beach is split in two. The fishermen use the larger shingle beach and locals and holidaymakers use the smaller sandier beach for sunbathing and swimming. The Todden, as it is known, has two rocks - the Mare and Island and a passage connecting the two beaches.

Places to holiday in Cadgwith Cove

The village has been inhabited since the 16th century. Cottages were built to house the fishermen and their families and farm cottages for farm workers. Property and cottages in the area are now utilised for holidays especially as self-catering accommodation offers an excellent option to hotels and guesthouses.

Estate agents as well as tourist information offices at Helston receive numerous enquiries for farm and seaside cottages in Cadgwith. This is because a holiday cottage offers more of a home from home environment than a traditional hotel. They also give you more freedom to explore the local area, such as Carn Barrow, the Devil's Frying pan, Kildown Point, Enys Head, Black Rock and Ruan Minor or travel further a field.

The living area on the lower floor is small but just adequate for two. Very squeaky floor boards through the kitchen /lounge area caused us concern for the accommodation below, but the folk staying there were not bothered. The bath room and toilet is on an even smaller scale, but designed well and was fine. We were comfortable and we enjoyed being there. The bedroom on the higher level was more difficult. The information about the venue is clear that the bedroom is an attic/loft room and that was fine, but we found that the only place to stand upright was at the top of the stairs. I am not disabled but at 73 I found that to mount a step of between 18 and 20 inches to reach the drawers and hanging space for clothes was too difficult ..... and not even a rail or handle to grip for assistance! I think it needs a little re- planning. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and the location is excellent.
