Bay View has a most unique position in Cadgwith, situated at the top of the slipway leading directly onto the beach and opposite the Cadgwith Cove Inn. Grade 2 listed, it was built in the 18th century to house a large capstan used to winch up seine boats, originally used for pilchard fishing. The house is well maintained and has a modern kitchen and living area including slate flooring throughout, with the addition of a cosy wood burning stove for winter. Lulled by the sound of the waves, you can enjoy sea views from the main bedroom and sitting room. French windows lead out to the garden, and here you can watch the daily activities of the local fishermen, village events, or just relax and enjoy your holiday.

Waking up to the waves lapping on the shore, seeing fishermen launch their boats out to sea. What a wonderful place to stay whilst celebrating a special occasion! Our thanks to Jeanette and Margaret for sharing their lovely cottage and for the most welcome milk, biscuits and flowers.

Bay View was as lovely as usual. We keep hoping the owners might install a stronger shower and it would be lovely if they provided towels [owner's note: towels are to be provided from 2018] but everything else in the house was lovely. We will be back next year.
