Gunvor Cottage Coverack

 
 
£501 - £1469
Book

Gunvor Cottage is a gorgeous thatched cottage, beautifully renovated with elegant furnishings and quirky touches. Offering two en suite bedrooms upstairs, both with stunning views across the beach and Coverack from their traditional shuttered, sash windows. The open plan living space downstairs is a fusion of traditional, historical and modern, including delightful additions of timber from the original cottage. Enjoy breakfast at the dining table and take in the ever changing views of the sea, or relax at the kitchen island, raising a glass of something chilled while chatting about your day's adventures in this pretty fishing village and beyond. Gunvor Cottage offers a real magical break away in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

Underfloor heating throughout the cottage will keep your toes cosy after a day at the beach. Or in the colder months, snuggle up on the comfortable sofa and bask in the warmth of the woodburner, which sits in the inglenook fireplace which incorporates a huge ship's beam. Or cook up a storm in the beautiful well equipped kitchen. The cottage is named after the barque "Gunvor" wrecked in fog at Black Head, south west of Coverack on 6th April 1912. Miraculously all crew were saved, along with the life buoy, which was given to the lady who owned the cottage at the time, as she took in many of the crew. The cottage didn't have a name at the time as so has been called Gunvor Cottage ever since. Walking enthusiasts and adventure lovers are offered a wealth of exploration opportunities from the property, which is also perfectly positioned for a traditional family beach holiday.

Holidays in Coverack

Coverack Beach

Enjoy the small sandy and pebbly beach, which is life guarded during the summer season, and allows dogs year round (they must be kept on leads during the summer months). Coverack beach is popular with families and is ideal for swimming and rock-pooling. 

Watersports

For the more adventurous, Coverack has its own windsurfing centre where you can take lessons and courses in windsurfing. The conditions in Coverack are among the best for windsurfing in Cornwall. Or, why not hire a stand up paddle board or kayak from the centre and experience the bay from a completely different angle?

Alternatively, some choose to take the adventures below water; due to the many shipwrecks off the coast, the area is popular with divers who wish to explore the area under the sea. 

Walking

With easy access onto the South West Coast Path, Coverack is popular with walkers. Head North towards Porthhallow, and South towards Cadgwith. Whichever direction you choose to walk, you'll be treated to stunning sea views. 

Food and Drink

There are a selection of places to eat and drink in Coverack, including the local pub, The Paris Hotel, named after the ship which ran aground in 1899; The Lifeboat House which serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and take-away food, with the main focus being fish; the restaurant at The Bay Hotel serving a selection of fresh, local food and a selection of smaller cafes serving teas, coffees, cakes and ice creams. 

 

Please note, the final two photos are supplied by Ross Farnham.
