With views over Cadgwith Cove - that are as mesmerising in the summer as they are spectacular in the winter, Inglewidden Vean and Ruan are two of three adjoining cottages that sit on the cliffs above Cadgwith. Townplace, Serpentine and Elm are the other cottages in this cluster and they are all a short walk from the centre of the fishing village, with its beaches, cafe and shops or for the more adventurous, there are some beautiful circular walks on the Lizard, including Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands and just around the corner the spectacular collapsed sea-cave called the Devil's Frying Pan. After all this exploring, enjoy a well earned pint in the local pub listening to the local fishermen singing.

If you would like to go on holiday and explore this part of the country you can find out more about our other West Cornwall holiday cottages here.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you’ll be set for life!
