Apartment 17 is located within the former Coverack Headland hotel, a fine Edwardian building, situated on the headland known as Chynalls point above the unspoilt fishing village of Coverack.
This recently refurbished accommodation provides a haven of peace and tranquillity in idyllic surroundings protected by the National Trust and designated a site of special scientific interest.
This apartment has unrivalled sea views from all rooms (even the bathroom !) extending out across Chynalls point to the horizon and on down to Coverack village. Coverack headland has its own
beach, reached by a footpath. It is a secluded sandy cove, which is ideal for swimming or beach games.
There are extensive lawned gardens and a tennis court for guests use. The light and airy accommodation has a high standard of coordinating decor, quality furnishings throughout and a well equipped kitchen. The apartment has double glazing and electric heating. There is one bedroom, a bathroom (with bath and shower) and open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Facing out to sea is the private balcony (complete with table and chairs) - a wonderful vantage point to have breakfast, dinner or to simply relax and enjoy the view. The apartment has WiFi Broadband and its own designated parking.
Coverack is an unspoilt fishing village just 0.5 mile away from the apartment with a local pub, a restaurant, cafe and gift/general goods shop. A historic village with an active fishing harbour and a real sense of community - indeed you may purchase delightful Cornish pasties and cakes from Elizabeth, a local resident, for that special homemade treat.
The apartment is ideally located as a base from which to explore many of Cornwall's main tourist attractions (The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Newquay and St Ives), dramatic scenery, cultural heritage and stunning gardens. In addition the South West Coast Path (just over the garden fence) leads to Lands end in the South and Helford to the North. Also, Terence Coventry's sculpture park is exceptional and is located in the adjacent field to the apartment - you can even see some of the exhibits from the balcony.

About the location
St Keverne 2 miles; Helston 12 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.
Coverack is a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, a few miles from Lizard Point in Cornwall, the most southerly point on mainland Britain. Coverack is a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the main tourist routes and offers a beach in the sheltered bay, which is ideal for swimming, windsurfing and kayaking, as well as shops, a Post Office, pub and restaurants. The Lizard Peninsula is a large area of spectacular coves and beaches and is noted for its rare geology and plants. From Lizard Point there are wonderful sea views from the windswept cliffs, which provide fabulous walking opportunities along this stretch of the South West Coast Path. Inland is the market town of Helston, known for its Flora Day Festival, and in Gweek is The Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Flambards theme park is just 20 minutes' drive away and just over ten miles away is the Culdrose Airfield, where once a year the public are welcome to come and meet the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Navy’s flying force. Coverack is ideally located for exploring The Lizard Peninsula, as well as the lovely seaside towns of St Ives and Falmouth and many other beaches and pretty villages.
