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.

Things to do in Cadgwith

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.

We arrived on a bitterly cold February day and were very pleasantly relieved to find the house toasty warm. After our long journey the bottle of French wine kindly left for us was a lovely additional touch. Mike, the next door housekeeper, is friendly and helpful and keeps the house immaculately clean. The main shopping street (including a supermarket) is a few minutes away along with a good choice of pubs and restaurants. There is a short walk downhill to the front passing by an excellent Indian restaurant where we ate one evening. The 2 bathrooms are very modern and the style of the house is a lovely eclectic blend of french rustic chic and modernity. Although the house is in the centre and of the town it lies in a very quiet location where only the seagulls will occasionally disturb your peace. We loved the little courtyard whch would be perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months. We had a problem one morning trying to turn into the road from the alley as 2 cars had been illegally parked on double yellow lines opposite the exit. I wonder if the council could put some obstuction there to prevent this happening? As we have family in Penzance (the reason for our visit) we will look to rent this house for future visits. Linda was excellent at communicating with us and very helpful.

Incredible! Set back from the road and accessed via a gate, the cottage has so much charm, warmth and is very cosey with its brick walls, beams and a log fire. Living space and bedrooms were very comfortable and served all of our family needs. The owner provided a wonderful cream tea for our arrival which was very welcome indeed! Close by to Praa Sands beach and cafe, we were able to walk in the breezy sea air and watch the waves crashing in. Awesome! Lovely pub is just a short walk up the road to the Lion and Lamb where they serve great food at good prices. Easy to access all areas in this part of Cornwall- Lands End, Falmouth, St Ives and Penzance. Would highly recommend Porthleven, a lovely little village with great pubs! This was our first time to this area and we have loved every minute there as an immediate relief to our normal hectic lifestyles. Would highly recommend staying here and would most definitely return again (except we make a rule to never go to the same place twice!).
