Whelk Cottage is a little gem. It is spotless, and decorated beautifully with a fishing theme that reflects nearby Cadgwith Cove. It was perfectly big enough for a family of four, plus the dog, with a lovely-sized bathroom with both shower and bath. The biggest benefit of this property is its location - the local shop, which is well stocked, is 3 minutes walk away, but the jewel in the crown is Cadgwith Cove, which is 10 minutes walk away (maybe 15 on the way back as it's a steep hill). The cottage is brilliantly located to explore The Lizard, while St Michael's Mount, Land's End etc are only around 45 - 60 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this property to others - you won't be disappointed.

Another great stay at Whelk Cottage - cosy and well-equipped, with a fisherman's cottage feel. Lots of close walks nearby, as well as Cadgwith Cove with the friendly pub. The Lizard is only a short drive away. Great cottage, great week, we'll be back.

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 fabulous week, helped along by beautiful weather. Visited old haunts - Kennack Sands, the Lizard, Church Cove, Falmouth - and also new - Praa Sands (lovely sandy beach) and St Michael's Mount (beautiful but so busy). We love the cottage, especially the pictures and nick nacks, the village and the locals. Thank you.

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.

Surf, sand, sea.....and a little glimpse of sun...but that didn't matter because the cottage felt like home from home, so when the rain started we stayed cosy. Thank you for sharing this abode. The facilities are very good, making our stay easy, relaxing and comfortable. A proper break from work life. We love Cadgwith but have now broken the mould and branched out......to Ruan Minor! A super location for Cadgwith, walks and trips to the beach. We hope to return.

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.

I can't praise this stunning cottage and its location enough. Spotlessly clean and welcoming. Wine waiting for us and a personal note of welcome. The beds are so comfortable too. And it's dog friendly. Pretty garden to sit in. And the Thursday morning market in the village hall opposite the cottage is a must. Their bacon and egg sandwiches are legendary. Friendly people too. Just wonderful. Only downside is a lack of dog friendly sandy beaches before 7pm. But perfect for families who want spotless beaches. I will definitely go back here.

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.

What a beautiful place! Lovely and cosy and homely, well appointed and superb location - exactly what the doctor ordered to unwind and de-stress. Nothing like sitting beside a lovely log fire with a good book and a nice glass of wine, with a contented dog at your feet. A great place - see you next year.

A lovely week in a beautiful cottage. We felt very at home and did not want to leave! The weather was mixed, but we still went out for walks every day. Church Cove and Dollar Bay were quite spectacular in the high winds and we also saw dolphins off Lizard Point - first time in many years of coming to Cornwall. We will definitely be back.

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.

A lovely cosy cottage in a great location. The cottage has everything you should need. It is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. A small garden at the back is a suntrap. There is a small shop nearby and also somewhere to buy homemade pasties. Within easy walking distance of Cadgwith Cove and an easy drive to the Lizard. Locals are all friendly and helpful. We'll be back!

We had a great stay at Whelk Cottage. Very comfortable and equipped with nearly everything you need. The cottage was warm and cosy, quiet location and central for visiting The Lizard and surrounding beaches. Great cliff walks with the dog. We did not want to leave and will be booking another visit shortly.

The cottage is a home from home so we can relax and enjoy our holiday no matter what the weather is like. There is so much to enjoy within walking distance and there is such easy access to the Cove, cliff walks and local beaches. As we are directly opposite the village hall we enjoy meeting the locals on a Thursday morning. One suggestion - a dishwasher would be helpful, but not vital.
