Holiday Home in Coverack, Cornwall, England - Tranquil Village Location, Two Minutes Walk from Harbour and Beach
About Elizabeth Anstey
The owners bought Lowlands in 2003 with the intention of moving to Cornwall. Work started in November 2004 to make it the superb family home it is today but sadly circumstances have not conspired to enable us to move to Coverack yet. For this reason we currently offer people the opportunity to share our lovely house by renting it so they can appreciate this wonderful corner of Cornwall which so consistently draws people back to it year on year. Chris and Billie have two gorgeous daughters, both in their 20s, who share their love of Coverack having spent so many happy summers there. The house very much reflects our way of living and provides a comfortable and distinctively personal feel to the accommodation.

Why Elizabeth Anstey chose Coverack
Having holidayed in Coverack for over twenty years, an opportunity arose to buy this brilliantly situated house from which we fondly imagine we can see our grandchildren (potential) on either the harbour wall or the beach. With its own garden and quiet location it provided a restful retreat whilst giving superb view of the bay and access to all the village facilities within a few hundred metres. The potential for development became a reality when the builder moved in resulting in the light and modern accommodation it provides today. The remoteness of the Lizard is ideally suited for those who, like us, appreciate simple pleasures and a predominantly outdoor lifestyle, together with loads to fascinate both culturally and historically, and numerous activities on offer.
What makes this House unique
The view, the central location in the village, the garden and spacious parking. The house offers ideal accommodation for small or larger group bookings and provides a particularly good space for families.

Very enjoyable long break with the family.
Fantastic location with stunning views. Very spacious property - excellent having 5 bedrooms, all en-suite. Plenty of pans, crockery and cutlery etc for self catering. Nice to find games and jigsaws available. The visitor information folder was 5 or 6 years out of date. Not helpful for information on local restaurants or village shops ( one had shut 2 years ago, and we were told that the other is about to close). Especially enjoyed the kitchen/diner with the window seats and superb sea views.
Glad you enjoyed your stay Clare. Apologies about the house information booklet which I will update as a matter of urgency!
Jolly half term jaunt
Spacious house in stunning position. The kitchen is particularly well thought out. The information folder was very informative and welcoming rather than being a list of rules and 'do nots'. Maybe a small table in some of the bedrooms might be a good idea (for make up etc.) but the window sill sufficed! Overall a great place to stay and I would certainly return (if the owners will have me!)
This house definitely has the WOW factor!
Amazing stay in Coverack. Beautiful house with amazing views. We really enjoyed our stay. 5 large bedrooms, each with ensuite. The house was perfect for a family of 10. Large and beautiful gardens for evening BBQ. Close to harbour and beach. Went crabbing most evenings on harbour. Kids enjoyed jumping in water from the harbour.
Coverack itself is a hidden gem. Great beach at low tide with green/blue water. Stunning coastal walks right from doorstep. We hired kyacks and paddle boards from Coverack windsurfing centre. There was a Coverack regatta on while we were there which was fun. We also did a pirate and mermaid trail in Coverack and pub quiz in The Paris (the local pub) Locals are really friendly. Can also highly recommend a visit to Roskillys farm and Roskillys ice cream.
Perfect location for exploring the Lizard. Many beautiful beaches and stunning coastal walks, including Kynance cove, Kennack sands Porthleven and Lizard point.
Good base for exploring further a field too. We visited St Michael's mount, Pendennis castle, Eden project, Lands end, Minnack theatre and Sennan cove.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lowlands. Made many happy family memories. Would definitely visit again.
Special interest holidays:
The house is ideal for the use of small 'special interest' groups, such as artists, photographers, geologists etc for those wishing to take advantage of the many interesting facilities locally. There are a range of arts (painting, jewellery etc) courses available in the area throughout the summer
One minute's walk to Coverack's own beach. Approximately ten minutes to the quieter 'Headland' beach. Being tidal these beaches are quiet, clean and unspoiled. There are many other beaches in the area, with the extensive north coast beaches so loved by surfers accessible within the hour, and others from the famously picturesque Kynance Cove to Kennack Sands, Church Cove etc easily accessed by car.
Newquay is the nearest airport (approx 1 hr). Redruth is the nearest station (approx 50 mins). A car will not be necessary for the majority of your stay if you want a quiet and relaxing break. For those who wish to do a little more, then it would be essential.
St. Keverne (approx 4 miles). Helston (approx 8 miles). Penzance, Falmouth, St. Ives all approximately 1 hr by car.
The area has lots to offer, from activities such as diving or sailing (we are very near the Helford River), extensive and interesting walking (the coastal path runs through the village) to other pursuits such as the many famous gardens and National Trust properties open locally. There is lots for artists with the many galleries of St. Ives, including Tate St. Ives easily accessible by car. The Seal Sanctuary is situated locally at Gweek and Future World at Goonhilly offers a fascinating insight into technology. The National Maritime Museum is at Falmouth and days out will reveal the fascinatingly diverse landscape of the Lizard from the green creeks of the Helford Passage to the more rugged coastal cliffs by the Lizard lighthouse.
