Like many other cottages in the friendly seaside village of Cadgwith, Coth Lytherva overlooks the picturesque cove with all principal rooms enjoying wonderful sea views. But, unusually for Cadgwith, this sympathetically renovated cottage also has a large garden and plenty of parking – even with space for a small boat trailer! This fabulous destination is shared only by a partially adjoining small basement flat at the back of the property.
Just a few minutes’ stroll along a sloping footpath from the village pub, Coth Lytherva (Cornish for ‘old post office’) is close enough to the beach for you to watch the fishing boats come and go from indoors. Whether you are looking for an active holiday exploring the exhilarating clifftop coastal paths or for a more restful, relaxing break, you will enjoy this fabulous property at any time of the year and it is pretty much the perfect destination.
Steps down from the shared parking-area take you onto the verandah and another step up takes you into the comfortable and spacious open plan living space where the wonderful views can be enjoyed from the sofas and from the dining-table too for everyone to enjoy. There is also a family bathroom and WC on the ground floor which is very useful and a bedroom with sea views with a super-king bed.
From the sitting-area, a typically steep cottage staircase leads to the first floor and divides at the top where you will find two generous upstairs bedrooms, both with far reaching sea views. There is also a small first floor shower-room, making the most of the available space in this lovely old cottage.

If you see a fishing boat coming in from the cottage, hurry down the footpath to the beach in time to see it come ashore!
The 'Todden', which divides the cove into two, is a wonderful vantage point for watching the comings and goings on the beach below.
Cadgwith is still very much a thriving fishing village.
Some of the boats are purely for pleasure...
...others must work for a living!
