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! 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 for an active holiday exploring the exhilarating clifftop coastal paths or for a more restful, relaxing break, Coth Lytherva is pretty much the perfect destination.
Steps down from the parking-area take you onto the verandah and another step up takes you into the comfortable and spacious open plan living-room. 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. The bedroom on the ground floor has views towards the cove and is next to the spacious bathroom allowing easy access for all the ground floor facilities.
Open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas. TV, DVD player, CD player/iPod dock and coal-effect electric fire. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher

The pretty twin bedroom (Bedroom 3).
If you see a fishing boat coming in from the window in Bedroom 3, you could jog down the footpath to the beach in time to see it come ashore!
There are lots of pretty touches throughout the cottage to remind you the sea is very close by!

The kitchen units are painted a lovely soft green and are fitted with granite worktops.
Just sit, relax, and take in the view!

Steps from the patio descend to the little garden gate which opens onto the footpath leading down to the cove.
The footpath is the quickest and easiest way down to the beach and the pub!
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!
