Last week we headed down to Coverack, Cornwall – a small picturesque fishing village on the southern edge of the Lizard Peninsula.

We stayed at battery cottage, a charming white washed cottage clinging onto the hillside of Perprean Bay.

Battery cottage has been renovated by Victoria the current owner and what a wonderful job she has done.
Utilising every aspect of space yet retaining the original charm and character of the Cornish cottage.
If the beauty of the cottage is not enough to take your breathe away wait until you step outside to the panoramic views of the Cornish coast.
The cottage comes well equipped for families too with a full size cot, playpen, highchair, sling, bouncy chair, changing table, rocking chair, feeding pillow, monitor, stair gate, steriliser, mini blender & baby sun tent.
You will also find a bowl and a dog bed for your furry friend too.
The cottage is ideal for little ones with the beach so close and the terrace opening on to a park. Leisurely sit on the terrace and watch your kids play. Bliss.

A short stroll down the hill ( or a speedy scooter ride in the words of Alexandros) takes you to the unspoilt fishing village of Coverack, there you will find Archie’s loft serving up all your well deserved Cornish treats. The village store, a traditional Cornish pub, a fish and chip shop and a few cafes.

Once you’ve seen the views of the terrace it will be difficult to tempt you to eat else where so be sure to stock up the fridge. ( Sainsbury’s delivers and The village stores sells lots of fresh and local produce)

The beach at Coverack is a large, sheltered, crescent shaped arc of sand. The perfect spot for swimming and windsurfing.
Our favourite beach close to the cottage was Mears, literally turn left at the cottage and take a 15 minute leisurely scenic route across the coastal line. It’s dog friendly and the kids will love it.
Whilst on your stay be sure to visit The lizard point, Kynance cove, Porthleven and St Ives. Our visit was shorts so I’m sure their are also many wonderful locations that we have missed.
