The garden and patio are south facing with a sheltered sunny courtyard for breezy days. There is a hot water shower which is very useful for rinsing off after a day on the beach.

Coverack is a picturesque Cornish fishing village. Nestling around the stone built harbour are a pub and a restaurant both providing excellent food. There is a local village shop which also serves wonderful coffee and freshly baked pastries and a Roskilly's ice cream parlour. Running along the side of the house is a path which leads to the beach. Opposite the house there is a park with swings and a slide for children.

About Sarah Orchard

My husband and I live in Kent but regularly stay at the property so we maintain it to the high standards we would expect. We love to escape to the hidden away location of the village and immerse ourselves in the uniqueness of the place.

Sarah Orchard purchased this house in 2014

Why Sarah Orchard chose Lizard Peninsula

We know Coverack well, in fact I have been going there for family holidays all my life and have fond memories of happy summers there. My parents rented this property when I was a child and I took my first steps steadying myself on the granite birdbath in the garden. We bought the house in 2014 and then had it completely renovated. It is centrally located just minutes from the shops and the beach with the route of the South West Coast Path right outside the door.

What makes this house unique

The house is very conveniently located. It is minutes away from the harbour, restaurants and village shop. It also has the added advantage of a dedicated parking area for 2 medium sized cars. There are stunning sea views stretching from the beach round to Chynhalls Point. The house has recently been renovated to a high standard throughout

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Second time that we have stayed here, can honestly say the House and location are fantastic. The house itself is immaculate throughout and has absolutely everything you will need..... the outside shower is just a great added bonus, especially coming off the beach!!!

Would have no hesitation in recommending the house, can't wait to come back.

Sublime

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect goldilocks spot, not on top of the sea, so you get a wonderful panorama but close enough to get that feeling its at the end of the garden. Not in the centre of the village with the parked cars but still only a hundred yards from it.

A great place to stay. Lots of interesting places to visit with Coverack as a base. Property large and plenty of room for a large party. We hope to visit again at some future date.

A Jewel by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the charming town of Coverack at the lovely home, Porthvean, was fabulous. The location was perfect and the scenic ocean views peaceful. My husband and I flew to the UK from Chicago and travelled to Cornwall with my twin sister and her husband who live in East Sussex. We went to Coverack to celebrate our 60th birthday. It was the perfect place and perfect house for this special occasion. The home was spacious and comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. We loved the comfy beds and their plush, soft duvets and pillows. The showers were strong and had excellent temperature control. The town had great shops, restaurants and pub as well as coastal walks. Try the Cornish pasties or pastries at Elisabeth's. Stop by at the Paris Pub for a pint and tasty meal or splurge for a fancy dinner at The Bay Hotel. (where we celebrated our birthday) Don't forget to have ice cream at Roskilly's. The Village Shop was convenient as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.

Coverack is a picturesque fishing village in Cornwall. It is on the eastern coast of the Lizard peninsula, about nine miles south of Falmouth. The village retains much of its original charm and atmosphere. There is a large sandy, gently sloping beach, this is rocky in places which makes it ideal for exploring. The beach is great for swimming, windsurfing and fishing. Fishing boats and pleasure craft shelter in Coverack's small harbour - built out of the local green serpentine rock (some of the oldest geological strata known to exist).

The Manacles are located just off the Coverack coast. They are a group of dangerous rocks which have contributed to the sinking of many ships and are therefore now a favourite diving destination for divers exploring shipwrecks.

Coverack is the ideal holiday location for watersports such as snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing and sailing. It is also an excellent place to go hiking. The South West Coast footpath runs through Coverack passing through a wide variety of country and coastal scenery.
