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 nearest public gardens are Trebah, Glendurgan and Trevarno, but it is always worthwhile to travel a little further to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project near St Austell.

It was perfect, clean and everything you could possibly need .It worked so well for me and my son and Dog as a short break. I would recommend this to friends and others .
