Description

Henrietta Sleeps 2/4, 1 Bedroom)

Having arrived here in 1924, and situated alongside a tiny stream in two acres of land above Cadgwith Cove, still brimming with character, 'Henrietta' has been converted from 1920's oak-framed Great Western rolling stock to provide unique self-catering holiday accommodation designed for 2 people.

A double sofa bed and cot are also available.

Facilities include private garden with BBQ, washing machine, Freeview and DVD player.


About the property

E1791

The Coach House is situated in over 2 acres of grounds above unspoilt Cadgwith Cove on Cornwall's stunning Lizard Peninsula. The Devil's Frying Pan and coastal path are only approx hundred yards from the property. The working fishing village of Cadgwith Cove with it's stone and thatched cottages, pub, tea rooms, gift shops and beaches, is also only a few minutes walk. Poppy & Willow cottages are quiet, tastefully decorated 2 bed roomed properties, perfect for families or couples, whilst Henrietta and The Old Coach are unique oak framed vintage railway carriages. Both carriages have been here since the 1920's, and are just perfect for a romantic break. There is also a stream, goats, ducks and chickens! With wooded areas bordering 3 sides of the grounds, there is a wealth of wildlife including foxes, badgers and bird-life. The main house was re-built in late 2008-2009 and now offers 2 'cottage-style' holiday lets. Each property is equipped with a modern kitchen (including washing machine - except the Old Coach), Freeview, internet access (cottages only) and all have a private garden with picnic table, lights and BBQ. Guests are encouraged to make use of the grounds and picnic tables, and children love feeding the animals!

'The Fisherman's Apprentice' Monty Halls and his partner stayed with us in Willow for 4 months, whilst filming in Cadgwith. Their daughter was born whilst living here, and Willow was her first home!

About paula

We have lived in Cadgwith for ten years now. We fell in love with the area many years ago (Paula has been coming here since she was a small child) so when the chance came to move here with our three children, we simply couldn't resist it.

paula purchased this cabin in 2006

Why paula chose Lizard Peninsula

We have always loved Cornwall and in particular the Lizard. Having visited Cadgwith many times over the years, we never dreamt we would be given the opportunity to live here in such a beautiful and spectacular location. With it's working fishing beach, swimming beach, friendly pub and shops/cafes, Cadgwith offers a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The spectacular coastline offers unique walking opportunities either in the summer or even when winter storms pound the granite and serpentine of the rugged local coastline. Paul regularly contributes on a Tuesday evening in the pub, where he is well known for playing his guitar, bouzouki and even his double bass!

What makes this cabin unique

There are a number of benefits in staying in Poppy or Willow. Both properties are built and equipped to a high modern standard but retain a relaxed cottage style charm. You can choose to relax in the quiet surroundings offered by the large grounds and stream or you can take advantage of the proximity to the Coastal Path and the Cove itself. The Cadgwith Cove Inn and Cellars Restaurant are within walking distance and both offer evening meals. Locally caught fresh fish can be bought daily in the Cove. Live music is also available in the pub with Folk Night on a Tuesday Night and local singers on a Friday night.

We have enjoyed self-catering holidays for more years than we care to remember. The old GWR coach, 'Henrietta', provided us with one of the best, and most pleasantly unusual, experiences we have ever had. Cadgwith is a typically attractive Cornish fishing village with a welcoming pub/restaurant within (steep hill) walking distance of The Coach House. It was great to walk into 'Henrietta' when we arrived and find such cosy, well-appointed accommodation - the cream tea was particularly well received. Despite the November weather we managed a lot of rambles in the area and came back to thoroughly relax in our little home-from-home.

Thank you Paula. If circumstances allow, we'll be back.

Although Henrietta is fairly small,we loved every minute of our weeks stay there. The weather wasn't brilliant the first couple of days but it didn't dampen our spirits and we just went out & about during the days and then relaxed in Harriet's cosy atmosphere in the evenings..........or walked to the pub!

The grounds that Henrietta stands in are lovely and well kept........& our little garden was great for sitting out in, the Carriage well appointed and clean. The delicious / generous cream tea we had on arrival was very welcoming after our long drive.

We hope to return when we can........Thanks to Paula & Paul who own the properties, we had a wonderful week & would definitely recommend the place to friends. The description of the place was exactly how it was.
