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.

About Fiona Fletcher
We live in a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, South west Cornwall with our three young boys. Simon is a retired fisherman and I was a primary school teacher until I gave up my post to look after our children and concentrate on managing our holiday properties. We are a small, family owned and run business and we are delighted to say that many of our guests return again and again.

Cosy, warm, inviting historic haven
The cottage felt very welcoming and we felt at home as soon as we stepped in. It was warm, clean and cosy and really well equipped. Everything we needed was to hand. The cove was idyllic and the scenery stunning. We really felt like we had stepped out of the stresses of modern life. It was a perfect and peaceful week and we will definitely be staying there again.

Lovely comfortable stay in this beautiful part of The Lizard. Great setting with an amazing view from the top of the garden.
Fabulous cottage in lovely village
The cottage is full of character. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The walking is great. We walked straight from the cottage on 2 days and easy drives to other walks the other days. The local pub has very good food and we enjoyed the live music. Would highly recommend the cottage.
Well looked after
Just the right amount of modernization in this cottage. Quiet, comfortable, and just right for us
Cosy cottage near the Cove
We have been coming to Cadgwith for the last 10 years and this was the best place we have stayed by far. Great location close to the Cove and a garden with a lovely sea view. We had good weather so didn't spend a great deal of time indoors but we slept well in the beds and benefited from 2 great showers as well as a free standing bath! The cot was very clean and we had been left tea bags,milk and a bottle of wine. We had a slight issue with the hob but this was immediately rectified by the owner who replaced the faulty hob with a new one. This was particularly impressive as it was a bank holiday weekend. We would love to stay here again.
Fabulous winter week in Cadgwith
We couldn't have stayed in a more perfect cottage and village than the Cot in Cadgwith - it was exactly what we'd hoped for. The Cot is welcoming, comfortable and homely and is equipped with everything you need, and is just a stone's throw from the beach. We walked a good amount of the South West Coastal Path right from the front door, enjoying a rewarding drink at the exceptionally friendly local pub afterwards. There's so much to explore in this lovely part of Cornwall and for us, Cadgwith was a magical place from which to do it.
Special interest holidays:
There are many courses available nearby and we will be pleased to help provide information, these include painting, jewellery making, yoga and cookery.
The Cot is 50 yards from the beach. 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. 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 coast path leads out of the cove on both sides with spectacular views.

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'.
