    “Fantastic location”

    We had a lovely holiday to Mengarth and loved the cottage. The location was beautiful and just a short walk to beach and pub Cadgwith Cove and Cellar restaurant. Also in village was a small shop and amazing gift shop. The house was beautiful with a lovely patio to sit on when weather was good. Kitchen was lovely and big and very modern with all the utensils needed to cook for an whole large family.

    We had a lovely holiday to Mengarth and loved the cottage. The location was beautiful and just a short walk to beach and pub Cadgwith Cove and Cellar restaurant. Also in village was a small shop and amazing gift shop. The house was beautiful with a lovely patio to sit on when weather was good. Kitchen was lovely and big and very modern with all the utensils needed to cook for an whole large family. Only little niggle I would say was freezer part of fridge freezer was very small but the fridge was enormous so don't get too much frozen food if you get a shopping delivery which luckily we hadn't. Kitchen was cold at beginning of holiday so a small heater or radiator may be an idea but didn't affect us as we did plenty of cooking . Sauna was lovely and enjoyed using this on a couple of times . We will definitely be coming back to house again just wish it took 10 people lol as have to organise an holiday next time for that many people. I really did not want to write this review as like to keep good cottages secret. Also must be noted as reversed way of house there are stairs upto main lounge and kitchen and one lovely bedroom . Not sure if a stairgate was provided for stairs as we didn’t have young children but maybe worth asking if taking young children. Overall a fantastic property and loved the place x”

The property

Featured in BBC-TV's Fisherman's Apprentice, Cadgwith is one of the most mesmerising fishing/artist villages in an area of outstanding beauty.

A few yards from the sea, the village and coastal path, Mengarth is a substantial detached house that is hard to resist.

This is a place for all who love the smell of sea air, fresh fish from the boat, rock pool expeditions, cliff top rambles, sea shanties, time with family and friends and good food and beer at the 300 year old smugglers' inn.

Cadgwith could not be lovelier; it is the destination to slowdown and unwind, where modern world stresses are shut out.

Centuries-old cottages, mostly thatch, spill from the valley down to the shore and small fishing boats launch from the shingle beach as they have been for generations.

There is a separate sandy beach for sunbathing and swimming and nearby Kynance Cove, rated as one of the best beaches in the world by the National Trust.

Cadgwith is a little village with a big social calendar; gig racing, a regatta, summer barbecues and live music feature through the year.

It is also a great launch pad for sailing on the Helford, golfing at Mullion's coastal course and the gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan are simply stunning and Rick Stein's seafood restaurant at nearby Porthleven is epicurean heaven. Set into the hillside and back from the road, Mengarth commands an outstanding position.

Once you arrive you do not need to get back in to the car.

Inside find spacious dimensions, slate flagstones, wood flooring, wood burner, books, artistic touches, sauna for post cliff top rambles.

There is something about the relaxed mood at Mengarth that is so appealing: a real home.

Reverse level to appreciate the sea views from the large sitting room and the patio while the outlook from the steep terraced garden is unbeatable (take care on the steps).

There are three bathrooms, all modern and spotless, and four bedrooms offering flexible accommodation.

About the location

CADGWITH

Helston 11 miles ; Lizard 3 miles ; Coverack 8 miles.

A traditional fishing village on the tip of the Lizard Peninsula, Cadgwith is unspoilt and timeless. Quintessentially Cornish, its narrow streets are lined with former pilchard cellars, higgledy piggledy whitewashed cottages and charming smugglers’ inns. Time here is spent walking the coastal footpath, building sandcastles on the beach and fishing the waters for mackerel. The village is home to a small number of shops including a gift shop, craft shop and a fishmonger’s where you buy delicious crab sandwiches. It also has a lively events calendar, with weekly sea-shanty nights, summer barbecues, a regatta and a fortnightly fishing competition. The market town of Helston is around 20 minutes away by car; here you will find an excellent farmers’ market on the first Saturday of the month – a great place to pick up some local produce for your stay.
