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 the Owner
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.
5 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
Very pretty and well appointed.
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.

A Perfect Holiday Retreat
My wife and I (plus Saffie our dog) have just spent the most perfect week's holiday and recreation in 'Henrietta', a converted vintage Great Western guard's brake vehicle. Henrietta is situated in the Cornish countryside, well away from the hustle and bustle of every-day life, close to the coast and not far from the Devil's Frying Pan - just perfect for relaxing and unwinding in. We arrived at a time when the countryside was awash with colour - I think we've never or rarely seen quite such a variety of colours as we saw in the wild flowers growing all around. Henrietta is well placed for excursions to Falmouth, Porthleven, Church Cove, St Mullion and of course the Lizard. Paula made us feel most welcome and on our arrival had provided us with a scrummy Cornish cream tea. We were told that on summer evenings, foxes, badgers and other wildlife might been seen closeby - and yes, a fox cub did appear one evening, but we saw no sign of the badgers, mainly as they tended to keep later hours than we did. We'd love to return later in the year or maybe next summer - or both - time will tell. Thanks Paula, we love the place.
My partner and I had a truly wonderful and memorable stay with in 'Henrietta', which we had in April 2016.
I cannot speak highly enough of our break in 'Henrietta', which is an old train guard's van, which has been magically transformed into the most wonderful accommodation you could wish for, which has everything to make your stay just perfect! Lovely kitchen, bedroom (with THE most comfiest bed I can remember sleeping in!!), living room and bathroom. It is located right by a stream, so outside your windows you will be greeted with not only amazing views but a lovely flowing water.
If you love animals, then you will love the resident goats, cockerel, and three adorable cats.
The location itself is perfect, just up from Cadgwith Cove, an adorable little fishing enclave, with a great pub and restaurant, and amazing local, coastal walks, and also very near to 'The Lizard', the most southerly part of the UK,
If you really, truly want a 'get away from it all' break, which has peace, tranquility, calm in a truly magical part of the country, then this is for you!
All in all It has everything to make your holiday worthwhile.
Many thanks to Paula for a wonderful stay....and the cream tea on arrival!

Sehr gepflegt, liebevoll und freundlich gestaltet
Auf dem großen, sehr gepflegten Grundstück befinden sich die beiden zu Ferienhäusern umgestalteten historischen Eisenbahnwagen und das Wohnhaus der Vermieterfamilie mit einer Ferienwohnung. Außerdem gibt es ein kleines Tiergehege, was besonders den Kindern gefällt. Wir verbrachten eine Woche im Häuschen "Henrietta". Als wir abends ankamen, brannte schon Licht und der Tisch war mit "Scones and clotted cream" gedeckt. Der Schlüssel steckte einfach, alles war sehr unkompliziert.
Schlafraum und Küche befinden sich im ehemaligen, sehr schön restaurierten Güterwagen. Es ist naturgemäß etwas eng, aber alles sehr sinnvoll und praktisch eingerichtet. Man spürt, daß hier jemand Hand angelegt hat, der alles mit Lust und Liebe tut und eine Ferienwohnung so gestaltet, als wolle er selbst darin wohnen. Alle Zimmer lassen sich elektrisch heizen, der Strompreis ist inbegriffen. Auch eine kleine Klimabox ist vorhanden, aber dank der Lage am Waldrand wird es nie zu heiß. Außerdem fließt am Wagen ein kleines Bächlein.
Ein Stellplatz ist für jede Ferienwohnung auf dem Grundstück vorhanden. Zur Henrietta gehört auch eine schöne Hollywoodschaukel.
Der Wohnbereich, Bad und Toilette befinden sich in einer angebauten Veranda, von der man auf eine kleine Terasse gehen kann. Von den Fenstern der Veranda blickt man in üppiges Grün. Durch das urwaldähnliche Waldstück gelangt man sowohl auf den Küstenpfad als auch schnell in den Ortskern. Gleich am Waldrand ist ein Farmhaus mit einem Garten, wo jeden Tag Eier und Gemüse gekauft werden können. Der kleine Strand in Cadgwith ist steinig und lädt nur wenig zum baden ein. Aber es sind auch nur fünf Autominuten bis zu Kynance cove, einem der schönsten Strände auf dem Lizard. Dafür kann man in Cadgwith abends wunderbar auf dem Felsen zwischen den beiden kleinen Buchten auf einer der Bänke sitzen und das Bier genießen, was man sich zuvor im Pub geholt hat. Außer dienstags. Da sollte man im Pub bleiben, denn dann wird dort abends musiziert und gesungen. Für jeden, der diese Art Musik liebt, ein echter Geheimtipp. Die Leute sind sehr gastfreundlich.
Paula McMinn hat uns am nächsten Morgen herzlich begrüßt und sich um alles gesorgt. Bei der Abreise hatten wir unsere Jacken vergessen. Sie hat sie für uns aufbewahrt, bis wir sie holen konnten. Auch dafür noch einmal lieben Dank!
From the Owner
“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!”

From the Owner
“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.”
