Vintage 'GWR' Railway Carriage Henrietta
Idyllic location above Cove.
We have lived in Cadgwith for ten years now. We fell in love with the area many years ago (Paula has been coming here since she was a small child) so when the chance came to move here with our three children, we simply couldn't resist it.
paula purchased this Studio in 2006
Why paula chose Cadgwith
We have always loved Cornwall and in particular the Lizard. Having visited Cadgwith many times over the years, we never dreamt we would be given the opportunity to live here in such a beautiful and spectacular location. With it's working fishing beach, swimming beach, friendly pub and shops/cafes, Cadgwith offers a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The spectacular coastline offers unique walking opportunities either in the summer or even when winter storms pound the granite and serpentine of the rugged local coastline. Paul regularly contributes on a Tuesday evening in the pub, where he is well known for playing his guitar, bouzouki and even his double bass!
What makes this Studio unique
There are a number of benefits in staying in Poppy or Willow. Both properties are built and equipped to a high modern standard but retain a relaxed cottage style charm. You can choose to relax in the quiet surroundings offered by the large grounds and stream or you can take advantage of the proximity to the Coastal Path and the Cove itself. The Cadgwith Cove Inn and Cellars Restaurant are within walking distance and both offer evening meals. Locally caught fresh fish can be bought daily in the Cove. Live music is also available in the pub with Folk Night on a Tuesday Night and local singers on a Friday night.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

Peace in a hectic world
We loved our stay in Henrietta in May. Beautiful weather, the sound of the stream, lovely tranquil location. I read a book for the first time in many years and relaxed completely. Good local pub with good food and entertainment. Paula was very friendly but not in an intrusive way. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to really put work away for a time. Dog friendly too.
