Description from owner


As seen in Monty Halls' series 'The Fisherman's Apprentice' on BBC2.

In a row of whitewashed, thatched cottages in a Cornish fishing village, The Cot is one of those places where you can drink in all the atmosphere of Cadgwith and its history. Sunny and south facing, this cottage has been beautifully renovated to an extremely high standard, allowing you to enjoy the cove in very comfortable, stylish surroundings. Low beams, open stonework and original wooden doors - together with a secret room, possibly a smuggler's hidey-hole - all add to the appeal of this property which was built in the 16th Century.

“A Cozy Cottage in a Special Village”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2014

Cadgwith is a postcard-perfect fishing village, and we spent an idyllic 2 weeks there in The Cot, enjoying the fabulous scenery on the coastal trails, and sampling the best fish and seafood we’d ever imagined. We felt privileged to stay in a cottage so old and steeped in history and yet so comfortable, cozy and obviously well-loved by its owners. It’s location in the village is ideal – only a minute’s walk from the village pub and the beach, but very quiet even during a thunderstorm. We used the car park a short walk away on the other side of the village rather than try to park and drive through the very narrow streets. The cottage was perfect for a couple, and would work for a family of four. The main floor had a nice-sized kitchen and lounge with a separate washer/dryer area off the large bathroom with free-standing tub and separate shower cubicle. The fridge/freezer is just a small “under-the-counter” type, but you will want the get your fish fresh daily anyway, and groceries are conveniently available a very short walk or drive away in Ruan Minor. Upstairs, the 2 bedrooms were a good size. We enjoyed having the extra bedroom to use as a dressing room, and to store our suitcases. Although the main bedroom did have a small ensuite shower room with sink, it had no toilet. The cottage has a stove in the lounge, but we did not use it as we did not want to bother finding somewhere to purchase fuel for it and anyway the weather was unseasonably warm when we stayed! The service from the owners was excellent and they were quick to respond to any queries. They happily provided us with fresh linens and towels for our second week when we asked for them. They also picked up our garbage after the first week so that we did not have to worry about bringing it around to the street on bin day. The cottage has a rather “secret garden” that we did not discover until the last day. If you decide to stay here please be sure to make your way up the steps from the little back courtyard, and follow the path as it zigzags up to a tiered garden with a picnic table and benches and the most beautiful views over the village! Also, if you stay here, please say hello to the sweet little calico cat who likes to visit the cottages down the street daily.

Owner's reply: We agree that the seafood is wonderful here! Thank you for your informative feedback, we're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Cot. Best wishes, Fiona and Simon

“Cornish Peace & Quiet”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2013

If you want some peace and quiet out of season then the Cot is for you. The setting is idyllic. Cadgwith is a lovely typical Cornish fishing village. There's a pub 20 yards from the front door and there are locals that actually talk to you. The Cot itself is cosy and tastefully furnished and those nice little touches such as fresh flowers, scones, jam and fresh clotted cream on arrival are much appreciated. We can't really fault it to be honest and find it quite hard to leave each time we come to the end of our stay. Beautiful..and we very much look forward to each return trip.

Owner's reply: Thank you, we are delighted that many of our guests return time and time again - we look forward to welcoming you back in the Autumn!

“A restorative week, with a warm welcome staying in a cosy cottage.”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2011

Apart from the beautiful natural surroundings of the South Cornwal coast, the most impressive part of the stay at the Cot was the welcome from the owners. We were greeted on arrival with fresh, homebaked scones made by Fiona with, we found out later during a boat trip with her husband Simon, the help of one of their young sons. The Cot itself was clean, comfortable and cosy - I almost wish the weather had been cool enough to use the wood-heater but was very happy to have a full week of sunshine instead. This made walking the cliff paths around the Lizard a pleasure - climbing to the top of each ridge was repaid in full with a spectacular view. An outing to the nearby Minack Theatre to see the Globe Theatre production of Hamlet was a real treat. The local food was fantastic (Ann's pasties in Lizard Village deserve their great reputation) and there was plenty to be done in the fresh air. Overall, it was a great holiday in a magnificent setting: I hope to visit it again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for leaving such lovely comments. We're glad that you enjoyed your holiday and will look forward to seeing you again.
