Nestled in a tranquil corner on the Lizard Peninsula, The Carthouse is a blissful retreat for couples craving peace and quiet or just a break from everyday stresses. Enjoy lazy mornings with a coffee on the sunny terrace, before heading out to explore the stunning coastline. Cosy up on an evening in front of the Woodburner or spend summer nights indulging in a spot of star gazing. This contemporary barn, just outside the village of Coverack, has a chic interior with state of the art accessories, ensuring guests have a relaxing sojourn, also allowing one a slower pace of life in glorious surroundings, a sanctuary in which to rest and rejuvenate.

Enjoy spending time in beautiful Coverack with its working fishing harbour and fabulous beach, only about a mile from The Carthouse. Explore The Lizard, an area of outstanding natural beauty which boasts picture postcard fishing villages, spectacular coastal walks and glorious peace and seclusion. The Carthouse is just a short drive from popular sites such as Lizard Point or Kynance Cove but it is also the perfect base to discover your own favourite secluded beach or local eateries. Being at the most southerly point of England, you may be lucky enough to spot a seal or a mysterious Cornish Chough!

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.
