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.

Our first visit to Whelk Cottage, having been coming to the area for over 30 years. The cottage is very well equipped, comfortable and homely. Thank you for the most welcome tea bags, milk and bottle of wine - all much appreciated. The weather was kind, with no rain, and perfect for the many places to walk to all around.

A really relaxing break. Cottage very cosy and welcoming. Well-equipped, comfortable furniture, sunny garden. Good position in village and easy access to Cadgwith, Poltesco and Kennack. Good walks from the cottage. Very nice meeting in the village hall on Thursday morning. I stayed in this exact cottage with my parents in the 1960s so it was a real walk down memory lane.
