About the property

A romantic & stylish self-catering rental apartment on Coverack Headland.

Looking for an idyllic holiday break for two? My beautiful holiday home near the lovely, unspoiled village of Coverack, Cornwall, could be the answer. 180 degree views of sea, sky and coastline greet you from the wide south facing bay window in the bright sitting room and from the large balcony. The grounds lead down to a private sandy beach at low tide. The romantic, stylish south-facing apartment, which is on the first floor of a restored and converted Edwardian Hotel, has been completely refurnished. The living room and bedroom have uninterrupted southerly sea views and two doors open onto the balcony - perfect for breakfast. Offering, open-plan living in the comfortable sitting room which has a streamlined kitchen area with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, dish-washer, (ground floor laundry) and TV, DVD, Radio/CD, telephone, and free Wi-Fi Broadband. The shower room contains a strikingly modern hand basin, illuminated mirror, shower, shaver socket and heated towel rail.

The bedroom furniture includes a King Size bed with memory mattress, bedside tables, wall lights, mirrors, chest of drawers and radio/alarm clock etc. A full length wardrobe is situated in the hall next to the bedroom.

Double glazing and four electric storage heating make the cooler months cosy.

RECENT CHANGES: I have installed all new living room furniture including dining table and chairs, sofa and arm chair. New crockery, cutlery, cooking pans, (updated annually), dishwasher and toaster for the kitchen. The plumbing has been updated including a new Saniflo system and hot water pressure pump. Additionally most of the bed linen is replaced each year. A telescope is provided as well as binoculars. A Samsung 32'" TV and Panasonic DVD/Video player are also provided. New living room blinds and balcony chairs. Made to measure curtains in the bedroom and a dressing mirror have also been recently installed.

A utility cupboard in the hall contains all you may possibly need: Iron, Ironing board, hoover, spare light bulbs, small step ladder and even torches in case you take an evening walk.

Luxury in Cornwall!

You will have the free use of the Tennis Court in the grounds but need to bring your own equipment. You can reserve the court using the book by the payphone on the ground floor.



BOOKING: Any enquiry and booking will be directly with the owner. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY AGENCY BOOKING FEES TO PAY!

About Bryan Tyrrell

I am retired and live with my partner in North West Essex, England. Interests include Vintage and Classic cars, walking and cooking. I have loved Cornwall since being a child and some of my family live near Falmouth.

Bryan Tyrrell purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Bryan Tyrrell chose Lizard Peninsula

For many years we enjoyed holidays in various locations in Cornwall. In 1988 we rented an apartment on Coverack Headland and fell in love with the location, views, peace, walks and the unspoilt nature of the area. We have continued to enjoy our holidays on the Headland ever since. Just after retirement, the apartment we now own came onto the market for sale. We and other owners consider it has possibly the best views of any of the few properties on the Headland.

Whatever the weather, the scenery is always interesting. Sunrise over the sea is beautiful and really encourages you to get out of bed and have breakfast on the balcony. The little fishing boats come out from Coverack Harbour and empty their lobster pots etc., and ships of all sizes pass from time to time. Hawks can be seen hovering, looking for prey and just occasionally you might see a basking shark or seal in the bay below.

What makes this apartment unique

If you enjoy unspoilt areas offering fresh air and relaxation you will have difficulty finding a better location. In good weather, imagine drifting to sleep with the bedroom door to the balcony open and listening to the waves breaking on the shore!

Wake up to sunrise in the bedroom between March and October!

The coastal walks are regarded by many as the best they have enjoyed!

The claim of 180 deg. sea and coastal views from the apartment is true. Not a single roof top or other obstruction in any direction!

You can enjoy the romance of historic houses and gardens or the national heritage sites of Cornwall's tin mining past. There are several wild life sanctuaries and nature reserves on the Lizard and the fishing villages of Coverack, others on the Lizard Peninsular and those close to Penzance such as Mousehole and Newlyn. Newquay, the surfers' paradise, is situated on the north coast as is St. Ives, Sennon cove and of course Lands End a little further west..The South West Coastal Path lies beneath the apartment windows and is a source of excellent walking with breathtaking views.The market town of Helston is about 9 miles away. Local shops are available in Coverack and the village of St. Keverne, (2.5 miles).
