The property

With spectacular sea views from every window and a large balcony affording a panoramic vista, Headland Apartment provides an idyllic holiday haven for couples. This well presented apartment is situated on the first floor of the former magnificent Coverack Headland Hotel which was built in the Edwardian era. The splendid building sits atop the headland known as Chynhalls Point high above the picturesque fishing village of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula. Coverack Headland offers peace and tranquility in idyllic surroundings, protected by the National Trust and is also a designated site of Special Scientific Interest. The apartments have access to a private sandy beach which is reached by footpath, providing an ideal spot for swimming or beach games. There are well attended lawns, cliff top fauna to explore and also a tennis court for guests use.

Coverack village less than 1/2 mile away is an archetypal Cornish fishing village with a sandy beach, granite harbour and turquoise blue waters. There is a good pub, hotel with restaurant and two cafes plus a number of local gift shops. For a real treat fresh Cornish Pasties can be ordered from the cottage door of one of the local residents. It is possible to arrange wind-surfing lessons in the bay or even deep sea fishing trips whilst golfers will relish the challenge of the links-type course at Mullion; the most Southerly course in Mainland Britain. Once inside this light and welcoming apartment guests will be drawn to the breathtaking views from every window.

About the location

COVERACK

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.
