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!

October 2019

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.

June 2019

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.

September 2018

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.

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

July 2018

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!

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.

October 2016

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.

October 2016

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

September 2016

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.

Perfect location

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

February 2016

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.

December 2015

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.

October 2015

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.

April 2015

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.

July 2014

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.

June 2014

A very nice little retreat which had everything we needed.

May 2014

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