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.

We had a fantastic time at Whelk Cottage. It was beautifully clean and we felt at home immediately. It was a pleasure to cook food in the beautiful kitchen and, in fact, we only ate out once. We thought the location was wonderful, with just a short walk to Cadgwith Cove (we perhaps spent longer in the inn than we were planning to due to the fantastic singing!) Thank you for sending us the information on Lizard Adventure - we went kayaking with them and had a wonderful time.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Whelk Cottage as a truly wonderful holiday cottage. We had previously had a bad experience with another company many years ago when hiring a cottage for a few days and were rather nervous about a holiday let again, but this has restored our faith.

Whelk Cottage always makes us feel welcome - the care you give means it is so easy and comfortable to move into. You provide everything we need and I always look forward to the bottle of wine that's there to greet us. The new washing machine was a nice addition and these investments year upon year are good to see. Reading through the visitors book we can tell there are a lot of people who feel exactly as we do and really love the place. We shall be booking soon for our next escape to Cadgwith.
