Location description from owner
The England 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) beachPlaces to visit and see on the Lizard PeninsulaSandy beaches: Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands, Poldhu, Coverack, Polurrian, Gunwalloe.Villages and places of interest: Cadgwith, Porthleven, Mullion, Coverack, Porthallow, St Keverne, Porthoustock, Helford River, Frenchman's Creek, Port Navas, Durgan, Manaccan, Goonhilly Downs.Interesting towns: Helston, Falmouth, St Ives, Newlyn, Penzance, Truro.Gardens nearby: Trebah, Glendurgan, Trengwainton, Trelissick, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project.Things to do: Golf (at Mullion), short golf (at Helston), horse riding (from Ruan Minor), cycling (from Mullion), fishing (boat trips from Cadgwith), diving (at Porthkerris or Cadgwith) and surfing (best at Porthleven and Kennack Sands).Events: 8th May, Helston Flora Day. 2nd July, Ruan Minor Vintage Rally.

“Cottage has the best position in the village”
Fantastic holiday location to get away from it all, the cottage has everything you need for a great holiday,is in a great position and gets the sun in the garden all day. I have stayed in this cottage for the last 5 years it always draws me back year after year, I have also booked forJune for next year to show it off to my family. Highly recommended!
Many thanks, many of our guests say how much they enjoyed relaxing in the sunny garden - we hope to welcome you back again. Best wishes, Fiona and Simon
“A lovely traditional Cornish cottage set in beautiful Cadgwith Cove”
Spent a very enjoyable week in Pebbles a lovely fishermans cottage in the heart of Cadgwith Cove. It offers the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind. The cottage is well appointed with a cosy lounge with woodburner and lovely bedrooms with pristine bedding. With wifi and Sky HD and the Cove only one minute away what more could you wish for. We will definitely be revisiting ! Thanks to Fiona and Simon (the owners) for providing us with some great memories. I would strongly recommend Pebbles
Thanks for your lovely feedback, we hope to welcome you back again. Best wishes, Fiona and Simon.
“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.
“Lovelycottage, fabulous location”
We spent Xmas week in this cottage. The cottage was lovely. Although we know Cornwall well we had never stayed in Cadgewith before. I would defy anyone not to fall in love with this place. The pub was great , the village beautifully decorated and the locals very freindly. Met up with Simon and Fiona on Boxing day in the pub, really nice people. The best Xmas we have had for ages in terms of atmosphere. Very relaxing and very good value for money.
Lovely to meet you all, we're very glad that you all enjoyed Christmas in the cove, the community spirit really shows at this time of the year with the Christmas day swim and Mummer's play in the pub on Boxing Day.
“A perfect week away.”
Pebbles was all we had hoped for and more. Being in the heart of the village with an adjoining parking space was a luxury. Once again the welcome given by the owners (fresh flowers and the fixings for a cream tea), was an indicator of the treat which lay ahead.The cottage was already charming, but even further renovations are planned.There were plenty of loos, baths and showers for all. The bedrooms were all very warm, comfortable and tastefully furnished. The sitting room was even more comfortable than expected with the addition of a stone fireplace and cosy bood burner and two enormous sofas to sprawl on! The sun room was a lovely place to hide away and paint village views. We loved it so much that we have booked to come again in the Summer.
Many thanks for your lovely review, we look forward to welcoming you back in the summer.
“Lovely Fisherman's Cottage in the cutest town in Cornwall!”
We looked all over the web to find a suitable cottage for our December holiday break. Trying to please 6 people was not an easy task, the requests were: walking distance from the beach and pub, traditional cottage feel, kitchen equipped for cooking a roast dinner, an open fire, no bunk beds, more than one bathroom, cute little town with great atmosphere and a swim on Christmas day.. well we are happy to say that Pebbles had all this and more! What a fantastic break we had, it was so relaxing, the first day we made a great discovery when we walked almost next door to the pub (we didn't hear any extra noise either). The locals were so friendly and made us feel at home straight away. Meals in the pub and around the area (Lizard) were amazing, such large roasts and good food. The highlight was the swim on Christmas day where it seemed the whole town came out - don't miss this! We had never seen such a lovely little town, filled with charming boats and with lights strung out across the beach for the holidays, it was really spectacular. Spending our nights around the fire was a highlight and the wifi was fast and convenient for those who had to work a little during their break. All commented that the beds were extremely comfortable. We were made to feel at home with a lovely card and we also appreciated the flexibility with dates as well. We would not hesitate to recommend to our friends and hope to come back soon.
We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Pebbles, the Cove is a wonderful place to enjoy Christmas, the swim is always fun to watch. We hope to welcome you back again.
“We can't wait to go back”
I travelled with my two year old daughter and my mum and dad. Pebbles could easily have accommodated another couple without feeling crowded. The cottage itself has so much character and its locality to the beach which is used by local fishermen is yet another plus point. The people in the village are extremely friendly and if you don't want to eat in then Cadgwith Cove Inn is a 30 second walk from the cottage and serves beautiful food, often incorporating local produce. The surrounding area is stunning with places like Kennack Sands just a few minutes drive along with the Lizard and Kynance Cove. My daughter is still asking me when we are going back to its safe to say that Pebbles was wonderful.
Thank you for your lovely comments, we look forward to seeing you back in the Cove.
“Family cottage in a great location”
Traditional old cottage in a great location. This lovely old cottage is in the heart of the village. We had a very warm welcome from the owners and the local people. plus points for us were. A welcome Cornish cream tea. Lovely comfortable beds. Crisp fresh linen on the beds. Great garden to eat out in. very safe for children and dogs. Local pub very near by, selling great food. (folk night on Tuesday evening was good fun) 2 minutes walk and you are on the coastal path. (great if you take a dog) Cadgwith is a great location for getting to other places by car. It was good to see real Cornish art/gifts to take home A Negative point The local pub doesn't open monday to thursday for food until 7pm - a bit late for young children.
We're glad that you enjoyed your holiday and thank you for your lovely comments. We hope to welcome you back again.
