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.

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.

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.
