Magical, romantic and stylish, this enchanting thatched cottage is just minutes from picture perfect Coverack Cove. Escape to this tranquil hideaway. The cottage sits hidden in a peaceful hamlet; as darkness falls, a starry night sky provides a magical canopy over the cottage, and the tranquillity is broken only by the occasional hooting owl.
The sandy beach and charming fishing village of Coverack are just five minutes away by car, or slip on the " His and Hers" Hunter wellies provided and take the brisk 30 minute walk across the fields. The beach is ideal for families with rock pools and shallow waters. You can also try out kayaking or windsurfing in the sheltered water of Coverack's windsurfing centre. For a less energetic option relax and unwind with a pampering session at the luxury health spa set within the beautiful surroundings of the nearby Trelowarren Estate.
The cottage is ideally placed for exploring the Lizard Peninsula and Helford River. The popular beaches of Polurrion, Gunwalloe and Kynance Cove are most definitely worth a visit as is the quaint fishing cove of Cadgwith. Within easy reach by car is the market town of Helston with many shops and supermarkets, as well as the lovely town centre, port and beaches of Falmouth.
With a contemporary and homely feel throughout the cottage offers a super space to relax and socialise. The spacious sitting/dining room forms the heart of the house where you can catch up on the day's events in front of a roaring fire. You will also find books, DVDs and games for the children.
Upstairs, the three beautifully presented bedrooms with crisp linens and fluffy towels complete the picture. Swing open the windows to the glorious cottage garden and distant sea views. Enjoy breakfast in the pretty enclosed south facing garden before heading out to explore the many attractions Cornwall has on offer.
Later on fire up the barbecue, set in its own area well away from the thatched roof and enjoy alfresco dining surrounded by abundant flora and complete privacy.

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.
