Whelk Cottage has a very cosy feel and provides a good location from which to explore the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. With Cadgwith cove, one of the most photographed coves in England, less than a 10 minute stroll, and the National Trust wooded valley at Poltesco only 5 minutes away, this is an ideal spot from which to explore. The villages of Ruan Minor and Cadgwith (which seem to merge into one) offer walking, swimming, fishing, and just relaxing. Local amenities include a general store, post office and cafe, two churches, the Old Cellars restaurant, and the Cadgwith Cove Inn. There is also a local bus service. The house, with its small sunny garden and comfortable accommodation, means you can have a very relaxing holiday in an excellent location. This refurbished cottage retains many original features including beamed ceilings and wooden flooring.

Another wonderful week. Whelk Cottage is always such a cosy place to return to. The weather was mixed but there is such a lot to do in the area we just ran out of time! Daisy, our dog, has, like us, enjoyed every minute. We look forward to returning next year.

Our third year at Whelk Cottage and another fantastic stay. The cottage is well equipped and comfy, with a small but sunny garden and seating at the front, where we often had a glass or two of wine with local friends. The cottage is scrupulously clean and in a quiet but convenient location for the local shop and village hall. Getting around either on foot or exploring in the car is easy as the coastal path is nearby, as are the beaches. We aim to return next year.
