A traditional fishing village located on the south eastern tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Cadgwith is one of the most unspoilt places in Cornwall.

Why a Cadgwith cottage?
Holidays here are all about exploring the coastal footpath, landing a catch for the barbecue, and simply enjoying each other’s company in centuries-old smugglers’ inns.
The main attraction for most visitors is its characteristically Cornish charm - with thatched, whitewashed cottages, old pilchard cellars, and a former lifeboat house.
Fishing boats have launched from the main beach for generations; to this day, they sail daily, offering their catch to local pubs and restaurants on their return. The natural landscape surrounding Cadgwith is particularly beautiful; abound with refreshing cliff tops walks, awe-inspiring vistas and all sorts of local wildlife including the Cornish chough. Bring your walking boots and your binoculars, and lose track of time re-discovering nature at its best…
… and if you fancy a scenic or fishing boat trip, then speak to local fisherman Nigel Legge – who featured on the BBC’s Fisherman’s Apprentice with Monty Halls. Nigel offers trips around the coastline in his fishing boat Razorbill.
The village pub is a real hub of community life in Cadgwith, with folk music and sea shanty nights every week. During the summer months, the village also hosts gig racing, a regatta, summer barbecues and plenty of live music – not forgetting the fortnightly fishing competition! A sense of community is important to the residents of Cadgwith, and visitors are encouraged to take part in all events.
