Arguably the most picturesque cove on the Lizard peninsula and still a thriving fishing community, friendly Cadgwith welcomes visitors all year round. At Kinsale, a pretty, detached thatched cottage just a short uphill walk from the excellent local pub, you feel at home the instant you step inside. Window seats, exposed stone walls and a huge inglenook fireplace; low beams and lintels, steps here and there and a typical dividing cottage staircase – all are charming features enhancing its character and appeal. The front patio is perfect for watching the world go by, but the steep, terraced rear garden offers the very best views – over the village towards the coastal footpath, and across the cove to the sea beyond.
Downstairs is the separate dining-room, perfect for sharing a meal at any time of day and the warming wood-burner in the cosy sitting-room will keep you toasty when the temperature drops. All bedrooms overlook this pretty village and the larger double room has wonderful double-aspect views as well as a door out to the outside. Spend some time in the refurbished school-room at the front of the cottage, the perfect spot to sit and watch the changing colours of the sea and sky whilst enjoying a bite to eat or glass of local brew, and who knows you may even get inspired to paint yourself a holiday masterpiece! With a friendly pub, restaurant, gift and craft shop and freshly caught fish for sale right on your doorstep, you may never want to leave this lovely fishing cove.
