A great little flat with a amazing view, quiet and a lovely break away
Mrs Ferguson August 2020
We had a fantastic time and The Lookout was an excellent base to enjoy our time in Coverack. We have booked to go to a different apartment in the same building next year as we loved it so much.
The apartment was very clean and tidy on arrival and the bedding smelled so fresh and cosy! Tea, milk and cookies on arrival was much appreciated after a 10 hour journey!
The kitchen is small and there wasn’t a lot of space for storing food. There were lots of cleaning products in the cupboards though, which I appreciated - we brought our own washing up liquid and kitchen roll, but it was great to be able to keep the surfaces clean with anti bac wipes, and I even cleaned the bathroom during our stay - two kids on the beach makes for a mucky bath tub!
I wish I’d known about the big bag of beach toys in the cupboard as we brought a load with us that took up precious space in the car! Loads of packs of cards and games in the cupboard to enjoy in the evenings and when the weather wasn’t quite so good!
The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, we enjoyed night (and day!) walks on Chynalls Point watching the ships and looking for bats. The kids loved the beach and we also enjoyed a leisurely walk into town and the more challenging coastal paths.
Loads of great things to see and do nearby, and not too far from the other places in Cornwall that we wanted to visit.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday, thank you so much to the owners for having us. Unfortunately there was no space for us next summer but we will be back again for the views alone!!

A beautifully located spacious apartment with a fabulous beach just moments below.
Ms Powell July 2020
We loved our holiday so much that we have already booked to go back next year! Beautiful location, amazing views from the apartment and easy access to a secluded beach. Wonderful to see the odd seal bobbing about just off the coast. Coverack is a lovely little village and a short 10 min walk along the coast path with Helston and more amenities a 20 minute drive away. We're staying for longer next time!
Dr Godun July 2020
The Lookout is a perfect holiday retreat in every way. Clean, airy and beautifully decorated with not even a small detail overlooked, not to mention the breathtaking view from the living room window. We have spent a wonderful week there and will be certain to come back, availability permitting!
Mr Hodgson September 2019
Perfect for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Weekes August 2019
Absolutely loved it and hope to be able to book again! Beautiful place amazing views!
Mrs Booth August 2019
Excellent position on the headland with its own cove and beach.
Mrs Schofield July 2019
This property really is as good as it looks in the photos. Ideally situated on the SW coastal path just outside Coverack you get that "away from it all" feeling, whilst having conveniences near by.
Dr Isbister July 2019
The Lookout is a magical place to stay. Brilliant location and a well-looked after flat. We loved it, and immediately rebooked ourselves in for next year!
Mrs Rumble August 2018
Wish we owned it, perfect relaxing amazing holiday location, service amazing
Mrs Bird August 2018
The apartment was beautiful and very comfy, a real home from home. The views were spectacular whatever the weather, and we loved the walk down to the little tidal beach and along the SW coastal path to Coverack. We would definitely recommend The Lookout!
Mrs Kirrage June 2016
Myself and my 2 boys had a wonderful stay at The Lookout , it lived up to our expectations and more. The views from the living room werevstunning and ever changing , it was easy to while away many hours just looking out to sea. The apartment was clean , spacious and comfortable and we were really please to find a bottle of milk waiting for us in the fridge . Binoculars are a must if you are staying here, fortunately we brought ours and saw a grey seal asleep in the cove on our last morning , the cherry on the cake to a wonderful holiday. It would be an added bonus if there were a pair of binoculars or even a telescope in the apartment as we noticed in the visitors book that many people had regretfully commented that they had not brought theirs . We will definitely be back .
Dr Rand May 2016
We had a wonderful week. The property was outstanding. We loved the short walk to Coverack and the access to the beach. It could not have been better equipped or cleaner. We would definately return and recommend this property.
Mr Woodall May 2016
An efficient experience with such a beautiful aspect, giving complete peace and tranquillity leading to the rush of the world being left far behind.
Mrs Evans April 2016
Excellent home from home. can't wait to come back.
Mrs Drew April 2016
The Lookout is in a superb location and the views from the apartment are amazing. The apartment itself was clean, modern, well decorated and cosy with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. You can easily walk into Coverack harbour in about 7 mins (take a torch for the way back if it's dark!) Both the Paris Hotel and Lifeboat restaurant were dog friendly, there were watersports available at really reasonable prices (we tried paddleboarding) and a beautiful beach. The surrounding Lizard Peninsula was really beautiful and unspoilt by tourism. We loved Mullion Cove, Porthleven, Trebah Gardens, Helford river walks - tons to do and nowhere more than about 45 mins drive from the apartment.
Mr De Bache June 2015
Amazing vacation! During our stay in lookout 93 we had a great time!
Mr Williams June 2015
Excellent accommodation and views, we have been several times, each time thoroughly enjoyed holiday, pleasant walk down into Coverack.
Mr Boulby June 2015
The most wonderful thing about the Lookout is the unimpeded view out to sea. it is endlessly engaging and lulls you into just sitting and watching and you are near enough to hear the wonderful sound of the sea.
Miss Daniells May 2015
It is difficult to move around bedroom 2 as there is not much space around the beds.

Thanks so much for your review of The Lookout. We're sorry that you felt that the twin room was smaller than you'd expected; it is a fairly average-sized twin room as shown in the photograph and there is space at the foot of the beds and to the sides. We're always happy to give any further information such room sizes if it's very important to you - just ask our lovely Booking Office staff when you book and they will be delighted to find out.

Bright airy, warm and comfortable.
The interior is done up to the standard of what appears to be a very recent and comprehensive trip to Cargo or Debenhams, and I mean this in a good way. Wi-Fi was good (a solid iPlayer standard) and allowed us to access the rest of the world when we wanted, which is fortunate as the mobile signal around this area of Cornwall appears to be totally non-existent, which is a little surprising given the amount of kit just up the road in Goonhilly Earth Station (currently closed to the public 2015). There is an incoming land line so with email and incoming calls this could work in your favour as you can still pick up the emails but not get the hassle of the calls when you don't want them.
TV is a quite large old fashioned Goldfish bowl of a TV (CRT) so your HDMI gear will not work. But it does have Scarts, and the digital tv has excllent reception. The microwave was functional and there is a washing machine £4 per wash + + for drying on the ground floor. The tennis courts and spare racquets hidden away amongst the Monopoly board, puzzles and kites etc were a pleasant bonus. The cupboards also included a vast array of Free easy listening CDs the type found on the Sunday edition of cheap newspapers which gave us something to listen to while washing up the dishes by hand (the dishwasher was out of action). The surprising thing was that they accept dogs. Judging by the high standard of interior furniture and carpet you would never expect this.
The main point to all of this though, is the stunning view of the sea for as far as you can see and easy access to beach which is 200m along but also 200 m vertically down so bear this in mind if you don't like staircases or steep walks, (only really accessible during start of low tide).
We saw seals bobbing in the cove from the window of the apartment and later on also in the little town of Coverack pronounced "Cov rack" apparently which is a pleasant place to visit in good weather. With all but the minimum of compulsory purveyors of fridge magnets.
24 mins towards Lizard was the picturesque Kynance Cove, which made the whole visit worth while on its own.
Fantastic location and very enjoyable visit, happily recommend this property having stayed at many Classic Cottages.

Thanks for taking the time to give such a comprehensive review of your time at The Lookout - it certainly sounds as though you explored the surrounding area fully, and we quite agree that Kynance Cove is a jewel in the crown. We're sorry that we could only tell you about the dishwasher breakdown a few days before your stay and that the replacement wasn't delivered in time for your arrival, but we're happy to say that it's now in situ and fully operational. We're delighted that you enjoyed your holiday - and in particular that wonderful view! Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Aldridge April 2014
This is the 4th or 5th time we have returned, we love the flat and the location
Ms Fenwick September 2013
Lovely to have such a comfortable place to stay when you have a dog. Normally dog friendly places are a little more neglected and more poorly furnished. The location, the local village, pub and walks were all superb. We had a great week, thank you!
