Prospect Cottage is the perfect holiday retreat packed with period charm and modern additions to sleep up to six in comfort. Close to the heart of the village and harbour, Prospect Cottage is situated on the South West coastal path at ‘Sunny Corner’, Coverack. The coastal path is bordered by quaint cottages, tropical flowers and natural Cornish flora and fauna. There are breath taking sea views and the cottage is admired by artists and all who pass by. It has been privately owned by the same family for over forty years and after a major refurbishment is now available for the first time as a holiday let.

It is located in an ideal position for exploring Cornwall’s attractions and beaches and is an idyllic spot for enjoying the stunning views and soaking up the sunshine. Equally, it is an ideal winter destination as the cottage is well insulated, dry and warm all year round.

Stunning coastal path cottage in Coverack, Cornwall
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Beautiful cottage and picturesque location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in in Cornwall. Everything has been considered to provide all we needed for a comfortable stay with authentic country cottage interior. We enjoyed seaviews from most rooms and the front garden became our dining room overlooking the sea and coastline. This is a beautiful cottage furnished to a high standard. Useful large utilitiy room and out door facilities for cleaning wetsuits, boots etc. We enjoyed the peaceful location and found Coverack a charming place to be. Great food at the Lifeboat restaurant , pub and two cafes. So easy to hire paddle bords and kayaks from the harbour. Near enough to visit lovely secluded Cornish coves. We would happily stay here again.
