About the property

Wild Acres - a holiday cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms

Wild Acres is located about 75 yards from the main house and shares the same access road. The building itself was believed to be a former coastal lookout station, but has now been converted into a comfortable holiday home with fantastic views. The conservatory on the front of the building is a brilliant place to just sit, read a book and enjoy the views of the coast. It is really ideal for just a couple or a family with young children as the 2 bedroom is quite small and only has a bunk bed.

The huge advantage of staying at Wild Acres is the proximity to the beautiful, wild sandy beach a short walk below your accommodation. The golden sands on the east Kennack Sands beach directly below the property are dog friendly all year round and the magnificent stretch of the coastal path around the Lizard runs right past the end of the garden!!


The property is all on the ground floor, but there are a few steps up to the building.

Ground floor only: Lounge area, kitchen, conservatory all with views. Main double bedroom with door to the conservatory and link door through to a bunk bedded room.

Facilities & Services

Heating is via electric heaters. The kitchen is nicely fitted & has a fridge with freezer, microwave and Belfast sink, but there is no washing machine & no dishwasher. Heating is via electric heaters. TV with Freesat & DVD player in the lounge. There is an iron & ironing board. The property does benefit from WiFi, so please feel free to take your laptop!


Electricity, bed linen & towels are all included, but you will need to bring your own beach towels. There is parking available at Wild Acres, but please do bear in mind that access is via an unsurfaced gravel & stone road that needs to be taken carefully. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome at a small cost of £25 per week. Additional dogs may be considered on an individual basis. Please note that dogs must be kept on the lead whilst walking through the garden to the coastal path and beach. We regret no smoking is permitted. There is a cot & high chair available. A child's buggy is also available on site.

Fantastic place to stay as long as can cope with last section of drive. But isn't off putting not to want to return. supermarkets deliver so need to leave. View is amazing. Lisa is very helpful and friendly. Walk to the beach is easily manageable. Every thing you need is available. Very cosey studio. Even though early in the year visit plenty of heaters to keep you warm. Enjoyed our stay and waking up to the view every day..

Wonderful location

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful location with stunning view. The rough road with in meantime big holes down to the cottage is really bad. The other downside is the condensation and a leaky roof over the dining room in rainy weahter and we had one week rainy weather. The second week, as the sun was finally shinning, we would have liked to use the sun-chairs outside, but the chairs were so filthy, so that we could not use them. The last thing what really disturbed us were the in meantime four dogs from the owners, which were

running all over the place and kept coming into our small garden and even in the cottage, when we left the door open. It mad it

quite difficult with our own dogs.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy this visit as much as your last one with us. Firstly of course, had we known anything was wrong during your stay then we would have addressed it immediately. Things like garden chairs do unfortunately get dirty being outside but we could have very quickly and easily solved this for you. The weather was very unkind in the first week and condensation is an unfortunate by-product of it being wet and humid. We do provide a window hoover and dehumidifier for this issue with information in the holiday let but had we known this was a problem for you we would have made sure you were aware of them being available to use. We try to make it clear to our guests that our 3 dogs are very used to people making them feel welcome when they stay but to please uninvite them should they bother you. They are very used to commands and are incredibly well behaved if a little over friendly! The driveway is unsurfaced as described so unfortunately it is bumpy but again we do try to make it clear to our visitors beforehand and it would have been in a similar state when you visited previously. I'm sorry that this effected your holiday with us this time and we're disappointed that we weren't given the opportunity to rectify any problems you may have had. We will make sure that the elements of your feedback are addressed to make it clearer for our future guests and to encourage others to approach us should anything be amiss.

Pros and cons

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location, wonderful view and friendly people but it was unclear to me that the cottage stands in the grounds of the owners's house (about 50 yards away) and that their 3 dogs would be roaming round freely. Although they were readily controlled by the owner, sitting outside might be restricted for non-dog lovers.

Pleasant stay at Wild Acres

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Wild acres. The position of the accomodation is superb. Quiet lanes for walking dogs,easy access to the beach which is dog friendly all year, unparalleled views. Stargazing at night wonderful as no light pollution. Only downside is the condensation and a leaky roof over the dining room in rainy weather. The furnishings are fine for a stay with dogs. The owners are friendly and helpful, their children are delightful. This was our third time in the cottage and lived up to all expectations. Many thanks Lisa.

Wild Acres, Coverack

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this idyllic setting. The studio gives wonderful views of the coast and has the bonus of having a path down to join the coastal path to the beach. Indeed it was possible to spend the whole time there without using the car! Everything was provided for our comfort, even down to fresh flowers and milk in the fridge. It must be admitted that the rough road to the cottage was a bit of a drawback, but worth it to reach such a beautiful spot.

There is a superb pub at Cadgwith Cove, plus more pubs in nearby Coverack and at the Lizard. There is a supermarket in Helston. Coverack has a traditional working harbour, a general store, Internet Cafe, friendly pub and several eating establishments.

The Lizard is an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'and has some spectacular coastal walks. It is England's most southerly point and the highlights include early Spring flowers, the Lizard lighthouse, swimming and surfing from sandy beaches, delightful fishing coves, sailing on the Helford river, heather covered moors in Autumn, open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food!

There is a greater range of shops in Helston (famous for its Floral Dance) which is a short drive away or alternatively, the larger towns of Falmouth or Truro have a wide range of shops. The famous Flambards park is located close to Helston.
