This cosy little cottage is literally on the edge of Cadgwith’s shoreline, perched a few steps above the beach looking straight out to sea. Many hours can be whiled away watching the waves gently lap the shore, or occasionally pounding the cliffs nearby. In relative privacy, set slightly apart from the bustle of the beach and village, this delightful retreat is the perfect place to relax and absorb all the local sights and sounds. The living-room's glass doors frame the superb view, and your own patio is just outside. The compact kitchen is well-equipped, and throughout the cottage are original prints by the Owner, a well-known artist. Parking is in the public car park, a five minute uphill walk away.
The cottage is thought to have once been a fisherman’s net loft, and the building behind is still used for this purpose by the local fishermen. Next door is a similar cottage, your right of way crossing their patio; there is also a public footpath on the far side, but this is seldom used. Cadgwith is a lively little village perfectly capturing the essence of Cornwall, with its local pub and excellent little restaurant just a short walk from the cottage. There are exhilarating walks along the clifftop footpaths to either side of the cove, with incredible views out to sea and back towards the village.

Beach Cottage is approached across the neighbouring property's patio.
You can watch the comings and goings on the beach all day long from your own patio.
Down on the beach just below the cottage.
The beach is sometimes still and peaceful...
...and sometimes the beach is busy with fishermen hard at work!

The Todden, which divides the cove, is a popular spot with locals and visitors alike.
