BFB's Overview

This bijou, bolthole by the sea has us seriously considering upping sticks and moving to the Cornish coast. Located in the unspoilt fishing village of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula this pretty, white washed cottage for five, clings charmingly to the hillside, with panoramic views from almost every room. Inside, it’s wonderfully calm with a palette of rich creams and pale blues. The open fire, traditional beamed ceilings, stonewalls and flagstone floors add a sense of rural, romance, whilst the handy supply of baby/toddler gear up it’s family-friendly credentials.

Outside, the house couldn’t be better situated. There’s a huge, sandy beach on the doorstep plus a handy village store, selection of eateries and a local pub. Families can while away the days exploring the coastline, building sandcastles on the beach and burning off some energy in the great outdoors. Come evening, the cottage’s terrace is a great spot for an alfresco dinner and the garden even opens onto (via secure gate) the village playpark which is bound to be a big hit with little ones (honestly, we’ve not seen a slide with a better view!).

All in all, this seaside sanctuary offers an idyllic base for families in search of some good, old fashioned holiday fun.

Accommodation Overview

Nestled on the hillside overlooking the sea this two-bedroom (plus nursery) cottage sleeps 5 plus an infant in one master bedroom with super king bed, an adjoining nursery with single bed or cot and a downstairs twin room with bunk beds (full size). Each bedroom has views out to sea. There are two bathrooms; a jack and jill en-suite (which connects the master bedroom to the nursery) and a further bathroom downstairs.

The downstairs living space is made up of a cosy dining room which also has a small study area, a comfortable living room with panoramic views over Perprean Bay and an open fire. The kitchen is well equipped with an AGA, Smeg fridge/freezer, dishwasher and combined washer/dryer.

Outside there is a private terrace with BBQ and outdoor dining furniture. A gate leads directly to the village park which has a slide, swings and fantastic sea views. The cottage has parking for up to two cars.

Location Information

Coverack is a pretty fishing village on the Cornish, Lizard Peninsula. It has a smattering of white-washed cottages, a harbour full of fishing boats and a big sandy beach. It has a little café called Archie’s, a good fish and chip shop, restaurant and local pub. We recommend trying the Harbour Lights Café which overlooks the beach, although pre-booking may be wise in high season. The village also has a handy village store, which sells all the essentials and a great little shop called Elizabeth’s which serves delicious Cornish pasties and a selection of homemade dishes and cakes to order.

For a fun (but perhaps not the most sophisticated) family day out, Flambard's Theme Park is a short drive away in Helston and well worth a visit. It has both indoor and outdoor attractions so can works well on a rainy day when little ones may need some extra entertainment. Lizard Lighthouse is another popular destination with visitors and Roskilly’s Farm is a great place to go and sample some real Cornish ice-cream.

The town of Helston itself also has a range of shops including a large Tesco which is useful for stocking up during guests stay.

For additional dining options we recommend South Café in nearby Manaccan (10 min. drive) which serves excellent seafood and bistro dishes as well as a lovely home-made kids meals menu in a contemporary environment and with a pretty courtyard garden. We also recommend the award-winning courtyard restaurant at nearby Trelowarren, or the Greenhouse in St Kerverne, which does a great Sunday lunch. The owner does have a local babysitting company they can recommend for adult only nights out.
