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 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.

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.
