About the property

Stunning, next to coast path!

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 50 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 Cadgwith

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.

Peace in a hectic world

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Henrietta in May. Beautiful weather, the sound of the stream, lovely tranquil location. I read a book for the first time in many years and relaxed completely. Good local pub with good food and entertainment. Paula was very friendly but not in an intrusive way. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to really put work away for a time. Dog friendly too.

Peaceful & cosy, just perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to a complimentary cream tea, local clotted cream, milk & butter and fresh free range eggs kindly donated by the chickens wandering around.

Paula and Paul have thought of everything, from washing up liquid to an umbrella, spare loo rolls to DVDs, a real home from home.

Paula popped over shortly after we arrived with some very fresh free range eggs, they were delicious with the yellowest yolks I have ever seen. Paula said that if we needed anything to come and knock but there wasn't anything missing or needed.

The bedroom was so cosy, loved the decor, we slept very well. Some people might find the foam mattress topper a little too soft, but we have a memory foam mattress topper at home so it was lovely, like sleeping in our bed. There is a large period chest of drawers but we didn't need to use them. There's a hair dryer if needed.

The kitchen has everything needed, gas hob, combi microwave oven, compact fridge under the sink, cling film, foil, washing up liquid, cafetiere, etc etc everything... Lovely touches with the decor.

The lounge has a large sofa which doubles as a sofa bed. There are double doors which open out onto the private garden with the stream trickling behind Henrietta. As throughout, tasteful decor and accessorised. Flat screen TV, DVD player, Digital Radio, basket with local magazines, games and DVDs.

The bathroom is beautifully decorated and accessorised. The bath is short (1/2 bath) with hand held shower attachment to wash / rinse hair etc. Heated towel rail to warm the bathroom and the towels. Water is heated morning and early evening, we didn't run out but everyone is different.

Henrietta is about 5 minutes walk from the Devil's Frying Pan on the SW Coast Path. However, due to recent landslip there is a short detour if your are walking further along the coast path. We are familiar with this part of the coast path and it was lovely to walk to Kynance Cove out of high season even though it was busy, probably due to the good weather.

As with previous stays in the area, we had a few beers beers at the Cadgwith Cove Inn and ate there. We enjoyed the food but think it is a little expensive, they have a captive audience outside the high season.....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Henrietta and will certainly consider staying again, if only it wasn't for that hill up from the pub ;)

Thank you Paul and Paula for "sharing" Henrietta, she is a joy :)

Warm, welcoming and homely.

  • 5 of 5

Henrietta ( the old railway brake van) has been superbly converted into a bedroom and kitchen, she has had an extension built onto the rear that houses a well equiped bath room and living room witarea. small cloak room, just outside the living room there is a beautiful little stream that runs the length of the cabin and the little garden/patio area connected to the property, big windows let you view the steam and wildlife with big patio doors leading to the garden, she is set far enough away from the other accommodations on the grounds to make her a beautiful private retreat.

The area is stunning and the hosts are fantastic with good knowledge of the local area

Charming stay in converted railway carriage.

  • 4 of 5

Tucked away above Cadgwith, this lovely old faithfully converted guards carriage. Very cosy and compact. Just the spot to leave the world behind.

Small kitchen with combination microwave, fridge and hob, microwave took a bit of getting used to, cosy lounge with TV, small bathroom with bath and shower fitting.

A small stream runs alomg the one side of the carriage. Bbq for the summer.

The cream tea was a nice thought.

If you like solitude, this is the place to stay.

Lovely location, very secluded but easy access to the village and stunning views from the coastal path.

Very friendly host, cream tea was a very welcome sight on arrival.

Stunning property, tastefully decorated.
