'Lowlands' provides comfortable, light and airy accommodation for a maximum of ten people. It provides five double bedrooms on two floors, all en suite (4 doubles, I twin; two bath with shower, three shower). The master bedroom has a wonderful panoramic glass fronted balcony (ideal for that early morning cup of tea) and bathroom with large mirror to reflect the bay. All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and all doubles beds have summer/winter duvets. The majority of rooms in the house have a sea view.
The extensive kitchen/diner/conservatory takes full advantage of the fantastic sea views and definitely has the 'wow' factor with its views across the bay and double doored access into the garden. The house is well equipped and is set up for ease of management so that cooking and washing up can even take on a rare new appeal in these surroundings! In general the effect is spacious and relaxing and even with a full group of ten, the house never feels crowded with easy and open access to all sitting and dining areas whether inside or out. Double doors lead from the kitchen to the sitting room (with an extra table for those who wish to play games), which is comfortably furnished including three reclining armchairs and it also has double doors leading to the patio area which is situated to take full advantage of the sun at the rear of the house. Both the dining table in the kitchen and the patio table seat ten people comfortably.
Convenient sand coloured stone tiles run throughout the hall, kitchen and utility room giving these areas a fresh and clean impression. The Utility room also provides extra storage and hanging and drying space, as well as the normal utilities, for wet weather holiday gear. Kites, cricket bats etc. for the beach can be stored in the outside loo just by the outside tap which is handy for washing off the sand.
'Lowlands' is very much a family home and various books, games, video/DVDs and local maps/guides are left for your enjoyment. We very much love our home and hope that visitors will enjoy their opportunity to share in the whole Coverack experience. Broadband and central heating are included in the rental price. Telephone charges and replacement coal for the fire are the only extras that might be incurred during your stay.

The West Country region
Blissfully warm compared to most of Britain, this part of Cornwall is blessed with generally 'soft' weather and a kind micro climate, attested to by the fields of early Daffodils and rare tropical plants that abound in the area. The Lizard coast is famous for its unique geological structure and dramatic coastline (to which many ships have succumbed in the past) which gives this area its particular 'flavour'. Coverack's proximity to the gentle green creeks of the Helford River also provides a diversity of landscape and offers a variety of places to explore.
There are many beautiful gardens and National Trust properties within the area, whilst St. Ives (Tate gallery, Hepburn Garden and numerous other galleries, as well as fabulous long surfing beaches), Penzance (St. Michael's Mount, proximity to fishing port of Newlyn with its fish markiet) or Falmouth (superb Maritime Museum, picturesque waterfront, numerous yachting facilities) are all within an hour's drive. There are many beautiful coves and beaches, such as Kynance Cove, and picturesque villages such as Gweek to visit nearby. Within easy reach of Coverack you could also go down a mine, visit the most Southerly point in Britain at the Lizard or walk round the romantic 'Frenchman's Creek'.
Water sports abound. The Helford River is a famous sailing location and there is some wonderful diving to be had locally at Porthkerris. Surfing locally would depend on the winds, but the North Coast offers some superb surfing throughout the year and many great surfing beaches can easily be accessed within an hour's drive. For those who wish to be in the car a little longer, you could even take a day out exploring the Lost Gardens of Heligan or the Eden Project, both near St. Austell, or why not take them in during your journey down?
Coverack has several good shops and a variety of places to eat, an art gallery and delicious home made ice cream and pasty outlets. A well known and popular windsurfing school is also located by the harbour, from which you can rent out kayaks or try out your windsurfing skills. Exhibitions of the work of local artists take place biennially in the village hall, which also houses and showcases other village activities such as musical evenings. A good Information Board in the village gives details of all local events, many of which take place on an annual or regular basis, such as gig racing, Lifeboat Day, Air Day at RNAS Culdrose, Helston Flora Day, and the Regatta. There are a number of good pubs and Restaurants nearby, whilst you can find organic produce at local farm shops or even at many roadside locations. Roskilly's Dairy produces some of the most scrumptious ice cream in Britain and you can take the family there for a day out, to see the milking and sample the product.
The Cornish Coastal Path runs through the village, offering ample opportunity for exploring the varied coastline in the area. There are also a number of well documented circular walks available which take you to various places of interest. Flowers abound, and in the spring wild daffodils, bluebells and primroses can be found unusually within yards of the sea. The famous 'Manacles', just off Lowland point has claimed several ships in the past, most notably the SS Paris, after which the pub is named, whilst from the look out point on Black Head you can observe a wide variety of sea life, from basking sharks to a wide diversity of sea birds. The Church at St. Keverne is of particular interest to historians and is within walking distance of Coverack. If you wish to go out, the Seal Sanctuary provides an excellent visit for children, and Goonhilly Earth Station is also nearby. Riding, golf at St. Ives or Mullion, hunting with the Cury or whale and marine life watching are all possible - it all depends on how energetic you want to be.
When all is said and done, however, for the true Coverack lover little compares to the gentle pleasures of the beach at low tide, a little fishing or possibly crabbing for the children, a beverage on the harbour wall and the company of family and friends........

"The best vacation rental we have ever stayed in!"
Lowlands is everything you want in a rental house-and more!! Beautiful, spacious indoors and out and very clean. Elizabeth (Billie) is wonderful to communicate with about the property. Glass window… More

"Spacious house with fantastic views - and WOW factor."
It's all true - every brilliant review you've read about this beautiful house. We (my husband, parents in law and our adult children) all enjoyed both the house itself and the village locati… More
Thank you so much for your kind comments. A change of supplier could have affected the wifi. It should be up and running again right now. Apologies.

"Stunning property in an ideal location for all ages"
We travelled with our two boys and met up with friends and their two boys and two girls for the second Easter week 2013. The images of the house you see on website do not do it justice (and they grabbed our attention!).
This house is huge - airy - immaculate and yet very homely. We all fell in love with it on arrival (I think the predominant comment was "WOW").
Everything you will need to stay, as a base of operations or a combination depending on what you want and what the weather wants to throw at you. We had everything from high, cold winds in bright sunshine to wet grey days with stormy seas crashing along the harbour front. The house provides a cosy retreat or just a comfortable viewpoint across this quaint and largely unspoilt village. The beach is surprisingly good despite the rocky appearance. If like us, you have considered when and what you want from a holiday in the UK - and you have seen this house online and are still wondering... STOP dithering and book it now! This house works even in bad weather (which provides a magic of it's own in Cornwall anyway), so any time of year will give you a wonderful break.
PS. Keep the camera at your bedside to capture (weather permitting) a most beautiful

"Immaculate house with a wonderful view."
Visited Lowlands and Coverack five times now. The house is immaculately presented with five superb ensuite bedrooms. Kitchen and lounge match the high standard throughout. Lovely gardens and spectacular views of the English Channel from the kitchen and master bedroom. Ample parking for larger group or extended family.
Coverack is lovely boasting a pub, fine hotel, award-winning fish and chip outlet and a number of quirky independent shops. We love it!

"Breathtaking and brilliant"
What can I say? This place is just fantastic. Firstly the location is perfect. Coverack is a unique, characterful town in this comparatively undiscovered part of Cornwall. The house itself, Lowlands, is situated by to an old whitewashed chapel, with sweeping vistas over the sea. There is no more inspiring start to the day than to draw the curtains back on this view.
There is a great pub, a charming shop and wonderful walks in all directions. There is even a brilliant lady who makes fresh pasties and sells them from her front room. The surrounding area is beautiful and full of fascinating villages.
The house itself is very spacious and extremely well designed with all the bedrooms having good sized en-suites. The owners have thought of everything, there are books and games and an enormous television if you have time for that! The kitchen is bright and enormous, with perhaps the best views of all. The balcony in the bedroom is also a wonderful place to watch the tide rolling in. I am a writer and I had a very inspirational stay here in February. I can only imagine how magical it must be in the summer.
I couldn't recommend Lowlands more and in fact I seem now to dream about it every night.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the unique character of Coverack. We love the house and it is great when others do too. Many thanks.

"The most perfect house for a large group."
Coverack is home to one of the safest beaches in Cornwall, and this lovely home sits less than a five minute walk from it. Completely kitted out and perfectly comfortable, the owners will bend over backwards to put anything right that you might need. I would suggest taking your own knives if you're doing a lot of cooking (there are plenty there but with our group I do industrial level catering and I needed my super sharp ones), and there aren't any clocks in the house, so you might want some travel ones. We used Sainsburys to deliver the big weekly shops, and then the shop in the village has all the incidentals you might need.
