As seen in Monty Halls' 'series 'The Fisherman's Apprentice' on BBC2.
Pebbles is a traditional fisherman's semi-detached cottage situated in the heart of the Cadgwith Cove. Sunny and south-facing, the whitewashed cottage provides very comfortable accommodation and is full of character. Pebbles has its own patio and sheltered garden with sea glimpes, which makes a lovely private suntrap and provides ample seating to enjoy alfresco meals. It is only a few yards away from the beach where you can bathe or watch the daily activities of the local fishermen, and central to all the amenities of the cove.
You can enjoy freshly caught fish and crab in the Old Cellars Restaurant or in the Cadgwith Cove Inn, the local pub and social hub of the village. The Inn is the venue for a thriving Folk Club on Tuesday nights and traditional Cornish singing every Friday. In high season, seafood barbecues, fishing competitions, gig racing, a regatta and a folk music day are social highlights.

The Cornwall region
Cornwall enjoys an excellent climate with very mild winters and summers that are almost Mediterranean in nature. This climate has in turn helped with the growth and development of a wealth of botanical gardens in Cornwall that have become renown worldwide.
Located at the southernmost end of the British Isle, in the county of Cornwall, the Lizard Peninsula is bordered on three sides by the sea, and the Helford River to the north. The name the Lizard is believed by some to come from the Cornish word “lezou” meaning headland. The National Trust owns a major proportion of the peninsula, and this helps in keeping it unspoilt and unchanged. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Lizard Peninsula has some of the most spectacular scenery in Cornwall.
There are many small coves, once used by smugglers to land their kegs of French Brandywine, and beaches to be found at the Lizard, and the South-West coastal path is very popular with walkers. When people come to the Lizard they are inspired by the scenery to write, take photographs and paint. Many people go there just to escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives.
The Peninsula has a maritime past and many shipwrecks can be seen all along the coastline. From old barquentines and schooners, to steamships from the late twentieth century, even fishing vessels that capsized near the coastline, and old submarines rusting in the waves, are all just a part of the scenery.
Cadgwith is a picturesque fishing village with whitewashed thatched cottages lining the sides of the valley and a small fleet of colourful fishing boats winched up on the shingle beach. The fact that the boats are still in use and the local pub (The Cadgwith Cove Inn) is renown for it's singing of Cornish songs of a Friday evening is testament to the traditional character of this village still being alive and well. The village also has a thriving gig club. Cadgwith featured in the film 'Ladies in Lavender' and is the base for Monty Halls' series: 'The Fisherman's Apprentice'.
The cove has two beaches - the fishing beach where you can watch the daily activities of the fishermen. A small rocky outcrop called the Todden separates this from the adjacent (swimming) beach

"A cornish idyll"
We have just returned from spending Christmas at Peebles. From the moment we stepped into the cottage, we all felt right at home. It was clean, well equipped, and a real cosy retreat from the stormy weather. The village is a true gem, and has a really strong community spirit. As it was Christmas, the whole village was awash with Christmas lights, and a huge Christmas tree lit up the harbour. Unfortunately, due to the weather, the Christmas Day swim was cancelled, but everyone still showed up in fancy dress to raise funds for a local charity.
We have stayed in many rentals around Cornwall, at all times of the year, but this holiday stands out head and shoulders above the others. You get the whole package. An excellent dog friendly cottage, with crisp white bedding, soft towels, and top quality electrical`s, all wrapped up in gorgeous surroundings. A real get away from it all holiday. Perfect.
Thank you Fiona and Simon
We're delighted that you had a great Christmas in Pebbles - it is a magical time of year in the cove. We look forward to seeing you all again.
