    “TLDR: Really excellent place for a quiet holiday - but watch out for the seagulls!”


    When we first arrived, "The Poop Deck" certainly lived up to its name, as we were dive-bombed by a very angry seagull that squirted us both with poop. Within 90 seconds we both had a significant amount of seagull poop on our jackets, t-shirts, trousers and shoes; It transpired that the Gull had 3 baby chicks nesting on the roof of the front door porch, and our attempt to carry our bags into the property was taken as an attack on the nest. Fortunately the property has both a washing machine and a tumble dryer; it also has a back door, so we used this for the whole holiday, though the position of the nest stopped us from using the balcony of the master bedroom. That said, the Poop Deck is an outstanding place to rent for a holiday, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and well decorated, has a lovely split-level back garden, part of which is quite secluded but still catches the sun from midday onwards, and the sea view is quite simply the best we have had; even though the property is some distance back from the beach, there is better than 120 degrees of sea view from the main picture window in the large lounge (and also from the balcony of the master bedroom, seagull-permitting). The furnishings appear to be new, and the kitchen is well stocked with quality utensils, crockery and cutlery. Everything smells fresh and clean; there is even a quiet air-con unit that keeps things pleasant too. The WiFi is excellent (though the router boxes in the master bedroom could do with being shrouded a bit at night as there are many blue LEDs). The local shops are five minutes walk away (and seven minutes back, due to the gradient) as is the pub/hotel, 2 restaurants and a takeaway - also there is a second hotel along the beachfront that also serves food to non-residents and has a small bar. In the harbour one may hire kayaks, paddleboards and even windsurfing gear from the RYA training centre. Would we visit again? Absolutely, yes! Thank you for a very relaxing stay.

    - Alwyn, June 2022

    Dear Alwyn Thank you for your feedback (and huge apologies for the sea gulls - despite the deterrent placed on the porch roof - unfortunately there is nothing we can do now the chicks have arrived - we will look for an alternative deterrent in the autumn to prevent this from happening again). I'm glad that you found the apartment clean and well presented and enjoyed the views from the living room. We are planning to make the windows in the living room even bigger in the autumn with sliding doors (and juliette balcony) to make the most of the view. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back again ... Property Owner

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, pub and restaurants. St Keverne (4 miles from Poldowrian) has a Post Office, shops and 2 pubs. The Lizard Peninsula has many 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.
