We really enjoyed our holiday in Coverack. Penhaven was a cozy and comfortable place to stay, though the stairs to the garden meant that we didn’t go out there much with our son as they are indeed very steep, which is common for cottages in the village. We had an issue with the taps in the bathroom, which was dealt with quickly and efficiently - something that we really appreciated.

A wonderful centrally-located cottage. The spacious living area oozes traditional atmosphere. Despite having to run the gauntlet of dive-bombing seagulls we appreciated the suntrap garden with its sea views. Parking in June was no problem (managed to get in on the headland by The Paris Hotel every night) but not sure it would be the same in August! A great place for an out of season break.

Thanks so much for your feedback and we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at this lovely cottage. We hope that the seagulls weren't too much of a nuisance and that being so close to the harbour made up for their antics. For future reference, if the car park at the Paris Hotel is full then there is also a larger pay and display car park as you come into the village - hopefully we can welcome you back soon.

Penhaven is a lovely cottage located in the picturesque fishing village in Coverack. There is a beach at low tide great for rock pooling and a beautiful harbour where you can sit and watch the fishing boats come in with there catch. The Paris pub is a good place to eat and drink, and there is a grocery shop and takeaway and a gift shop. Coverack is one of our favourite places very unspoilt and the people are very friendly. We enjoyed doing the piskie trail around coverack and joining in with Halloween celebrations.

A lovely traditional cosy cottage in a great location, close to all the local amenities. It is very well equipped and the outside area is a pleasant place to sit on a warm day
Mrs Carhart-Harris March 2018
Superbly situated in the midst of this quietly busy village. Sea views from top floor. The shop with cafe and ice-cream loft opposite are perfect places to stop and watch the waves.
Miss Thompson September 2017
The most perfect, idyllic setting. In an unspoiled environment.
Mrs Burt August 2017
Penhaven is cosy and comfortable cottage which was the perfect base to explore Coverack and the surrounding area. We had a lovely holiday and will hopefully return.
Mr Day June 2017
A homely, comfortable cottage situated right at the centre of the village.
Mrs Johnson May 2017
Coverack is a special place. Penhaven is in a most convenient spot between the harbour and the beach. Everything you need can be found in the village. Penhaven is a carming cottage, spottless and tastefully equipped. Don't miss Lizard Point!
Miss Van Megen April 2017
We loved staying in Penhaven for Easter break. Clean, all mod cons, old world charm, comfy beds, a fireplace with wood-burner, sea views just down the road, small shops close by, and quiet nights. FANTASTIC!
Mrs Hird September 2016
Cosy place to go back to. The garden is a lovely birds eye view of the cove. Excellent location. The milk, biscuits & fudge were very thoughtful & tasty!

Mrs Tullett May 2016
Cosy cottage excellent location across the road from the beach and harbour. Would recommended the local fish and chip shop for food and the Paris pub. We had great weather for May, and our daughter throughly enjoyed the local beach and harbour. The local people were very friendly. Hope to visit Coverack again soon.
Mrs Braithwaite April 2016
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location - everything a family with 2 young children needed
Ms Hosken March 2016
The cottage was bigger than I had thought it would be, particularly downstairs. We had a lovely week and would definitely recommend this cottage to others. It was really cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Would definitely come back and stay again.

This is genuine feedback from someone who has stayed in this village for over 20 years in various property's. I have family living in the village & have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of the letting market. The overall impression I was left with that this was an 'average ' letting experience which is disappointing for the time of year & the uniqueness of the occasion. For the money we paid I wanted it to be amazing !

We were sorry to see that you felt your experience of self-catering at Christmas was only average. This property is a very popular one and three-quarters of the guests who stayed in 2015 returned a questionnaire to us, all of which were very positive and rated the property at 90% overall. We were therefore surprised to hear your comments, especially as you made special mention in the questionnaire of the Christmas gifts left by the Owner for you and your family. As you know, we have been in touch directly to discuss your thoughts. Tanya, Customer Support

A lovely cottage, clean comfortable and well equipped.
Mr Smith September 2015
In order to support local businesses in Coverack I'd really recommend mentioning that the excellent/shop cafe literally just opposite has everything you'd need food and grocery wise. We brought few days supplies from London and really wished we had known so we could have supported them and saved having to bring all this with us.
Mrs Kreibich August 2015

Ms Carr August 2013
We had a lovely week in Coverack . The property was as described, although access to the garden was via very steep and uneven steps. Stairs to the first floor were also very steep and would be difficult for older guests. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, in an excellent location, very close to everything in this lovely village.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for sharing your review of Penhaven. We agree that the stairs inside and garden steps outside are typically steep, as you would expect in a traditional cottage of this age, and make special mention of this in the description and photos so that any guests are forewarned. We think that in particular the view from the garden at the top of the steps is definitely worth a careful climb, and hope you were able to enjoy this when you visited the property.

Coverack is a delight and Penhaven is a gem, well appointed and comfortable. We had a lovely holiday and will be using Classic Cottages again - probably to go back to Penhaven.
Ms Addison July 2013
A delightful place to stay in Coverack. A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in the middle of this lovely, picturesque fishing village on the Lizard. Its location in the village is just perfect - Archie's Loft is a short walk across the street (think Roskilly's icecreams (yum) and the most delicious rolls and pizzas), there is a great pub by the harbour another 2 minutes' walk and a brilliant fish and chip place opposite. The beach is v. close by as is the Bay Hotel where one can sit on the verandah with a glass of wine admiring the view and think one's stepped back in time to another era. We had a lovely time with perfect weather and felt very welcome. We shall return!
