All of the previous comments. The location of Cadgwith Cove is both stunning and seemed unspoilt since our previous visit 36 years ago.

Wonderful stay in a great location for two people and a small dog. Plenty of walking and places to see. Loved it.

If you are looking for somewhere quiet and cosy this is the place for you. Not expensive and has everything two people could possible need. Loved it.

The Little Sandcastle is a lovely peaceful little getaway.

A very small but very comfortable and well equipped property for two people.

The property was in a good location for us, we loved staying here with our dog. Very clean and comfortable, we will be back. Classic Cottages were very helpful.

A pretty and very comfortable little cottage in a stunning village. Cadgwith beach and village centre only a 5 minute walk away with a great pub, cafe and little shop.

The cottage was lovely and cosy and the views are even better than you can see from the pictures. The garden area was also a lot bigger than expected and a beautiful sun trap. The village itself is picturesque - it almost doesn't look real! We had issues with the wifi on our second day but this was rectified straight away which was fantastic service. There was also some lovely brownies waiting for us on our arrival which was a very kind touch! Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing stay.

Lovely little cottage, very comfortable for 2 , and our small dog, steep hilly path to cottage from car park, so was a little difficult for anyone with mobility problems , getting cases etc down. Private parking was essential, very small village, only one pub cadgwith cove, which served excellent food, very friendly and covid aware. For us from Glasgow cadgwith was a long tiring car journey, Therefore probably would not visit again but if you lived nearer it would be worth the trip, Kinance Cove is a must and only a very short distance from the cottage .

Beautiful location, a real get away from it all. Quiet, peaceful and a good base for lizard coastal walks. Cottage ideal for 1-2 plus medium sized dog. Take little extras for comfort eg outdoor blankets, candles and loungers. Not suitable for anyone with fitness or mobility issues. Overall a great place, with enclosed sheltered garden in a lovely area.

Great stay - and owner was extremely helpful when we had a query!

Little Sandcastle is a fantastic, cozy little place with a great view from the bedroom window and a 2 min walk to the sea. We were met with Flowers & a tin of home made chocolate brownies on the table. During the stormy weather we had, we had a visit from someone connected to Little Sandcastle to make sure we were ok and had everything we needed. It was a complete surprise and a really nice gesture.

A beautiful little cottage in an idyllic location, it was perfect for the 2 of us and our dog. We loved our holiday, thank you.

Wonderful little Cottage with a lot of charm in a vey good area. Inside you have all what you need. Perhaps it will be fine if you have a two person sofa.

A wonderful location in a beautiful unspoilt fishing cove where the locals are friendly and welcoming. The pub is less than five minutes away and serves the most wonderful food (not just fish dishes!). The coastal path has marvellous views and takes you to lovely beaches and villages in the surrounding area. The local grocery store and post office in Ruin Minor is worth the 10-15 minute walk and means you don't have to tackle a single supermarket! There are also two lovely little shops in Cadgwith for buying souvenirs and gifts.

Cadgwith is a lovely place to stay. Wouldn’t book the sandcastle again bit small for us needs a bigger sofa comfier bed . Move the wooden chair would accomadate a three seater .

We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay in Cadgwith. Little Sandcastle is a 'small but perfectly formed' studio, and even though it's in a fabulous spot with everything you'd need for a couple, we appreciate that if you prefer more generous proportions it might feel a bit cosy. If you're looking for more space to spread out the next time you visit then do give us a call and we'll be happy to give you some options. Kari, Customer Support

Lovely cottage, fabulous location

This property is in a very good location in the village and ideal for two. Having on site parking is definitely a bonus. The popular local pub is just a few minutes walk away with friendly staff and good food, especially if you like fish!

Brownies and fresh flowers a nice touch,thank you

Lovely little place, quiet, friendly locals, lovely local pub, working fishing village, welcoming people and surrounding areas. Absolutely stunning.

Great bolt hole. Small, cosy and welcoming space. Ideal for coastal walks and those seeking a quiet location with friendly Pub on the doorstep.

Very lovely cottage.

Pretty little bathing hut style property, well and stylishly equipped and in a fabulous position less than five minutes fron the pub, shops, cafe/restaurant and the fishing and bathing coves. Would definitely return.

Loved it. Amazing brownies. Perfect spot. Very happy

It was a lovely stay, all in all. The description on how to access the site, the facilities and the location were all first rate.

Cute bolthole deep in the village. Short walk to village pub that specialises in fish. Compact but everything you'll need.

Mention that access to the cottage may not suit everyone especially with any mobility problems.

Thank you very much for your review of Little Sandcastle. As described, the cottage is approached by a short, steep slope from the parking area, followed by a 50 yard walk up a footpath, so might not be suitable if you can't manage this sort of access - do have a look at our photos of the footpath if you need any help to decide.

Lovely little bolt hole in an excellent location! We will definitely be booking again.

Perfect location

We had a really enjoyable stay at Little Sandcastle. Considering its small size everything you need is there and more. Excellent cake!

Great little base for accessing the coast path and the village amenities. Cadgwith singers in the Cadgwith Cove Inn are not to be missed, excellent. Really enjoyed the cake on arrival in the cottage.

Little Sandcastle is an ideal bolthole for two in Cadgwith. Everything is just a short walk away. Very well equipped kitchen and lovely open plan feeling. Outside space is excellent, would be fantastic in the summer.

Great little cottage perfectly positioned for cadgwith cove and the pub. Several good walks can be done from the cottage without having to drive. If we return to cadgwith in the future we would certainly look to stay here again.

Fabulous food and welcome at the pub

A lovely location and a perfect cottage for two

Its a wonderfull place to start walkings in both directions: to the Lizard and to Kennack-Beach....

Perfect location in beautiful Cadgewith Very handy having a parking space allocated nearby Ideal size for a 2 person break

We had a wonderful holiday. We love The Lizard, and Cadgwith, and have visited many times but this was our first stay at Little Sandcastle and I'm sure it won't be the last. It is a lovely, peaceful retreat with amazing walks on the doorstep.

We had a lovely stay at Little Sandcastle. It's not the biggest property but for a fine week in the summer when we were out every day it was an excellent base.
The village is lovely and the coastal path all around the Lizard is spectacular.
The property is well fitted out, everything seems pretty new and very tastefully done. The patio area is really useful and although it faces pretty much north it does get some sun during the day. There is a built in barbecue as well. We can recommend the local pub which is only a short walk away.

A very nice little retreat which had everything we needed.

My Cottage exceeded expectations and excellent use had been made of the space both inside and out.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
