    And we saw plenty of gannets! Only two things that detract: the bathroom is very bijou and we think it would be more comfortable to install a shower cubicle and do away with the bath. Who would take a bath facing a blank wall in a box room with no natural light.....? Secondly it’s a superb view but there is nowhere to sit comfortably to admire it within the property. Difficult to do anything about this with the fabric of the hotel conversion, so the viewing chairs provided are good, but if the weather had not been so good, this would have been less of an attractive property. Also on the positive side, the location is really out of the way and the coast path and sculpture park are a bonus.

    - Owner's response - We are so glad you enjoyed the views from Gannet Watch and saw some gannets of course! On having a shower cubicle rather than our current bath plus a shower over it, we have found that many people like to have a bath, perhaps at the end of a lovely day’s walk, and so we felt it would be nice to keep one.

The property

Situated in a sensational cliff-top setting with stunning views out to sea, Gannet Watch is an intimate coastal haven for couples seeking a romantic getaway and coastal walks from the door.

It is situated on Chynhalls Point on the unspoilt Lizard peninsula and sits on the top floor of the former Coverack Headland Hotel, built in the Edwardian era.

Set amid large, attractive gardens and grounds, the apartments enjoy an outdoor tennis court and have footpath access to a private sandy beach which is perfect for swimming or a spot of sunbathing. Just half a mile away is the fishing village of Coverack, with its art gallery, shops, local pub and eateries.

Here you can enjoy sandy and shingle beaches - why not try your hand at wind-surfing lessons or even a deep-sea fishing trip or just relax in the sunshine.

Couples will love waking in this splendid apartment to views of the turquoise waters below and planning their day exploring this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Recently awarded a 4 Star Rating from the Tourist Board, Gannet Watch is a great nature watching spot - see if you can find the seals in the waters below or watch the gannets feeding. The open plan living room has a well equipped kitchen to rustle up a culinary delight.

View the stunning night time vistas (there is very little light pollution) from the sitting room through the telescope or sit back on the comfy sofas and simply unwind with an evening tipple.

This splendid apartment in this grand building offers comfort and quality with high ceilings and spacious rooms.

The modern, spotless bathroom with shower over the bath and cascading style taps is perfect to have a soak and reminisce on your day's events. This is a well-placed holiday base from which to explore all that this very special location has to offer.

Kynance Cove, recently voted one of the best beaches in the world, is just 30 minutes' drive away, and well worth the trip.

Or why not visit Trebah Gardens and admire manicured grounds and the many exotic plants on show.

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.

Note: Regretfully children are not accepted at this property.
