Cape Cornwall Holidays

Dogs are welcome all year round at Cape Cornwall, and an array of outdoor pursuits including clifftop walking, cycling, swimming and golfing, make it perfect for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors. Self catering holidays in Cape Cornwall are ideal for those looking to relax in a secluded area of West Cornwall.

A brief history

Cape Cornwall is the only Cape so called in England. Up until the 18th century, it was thought that Cape Cornwall was the most westerly point in Britain, until accurate surveying found Land's End to be slightly further West. Cape Cornwall was bought by H.J.Heinz and given to the National Trust in 1987. You will find the ruins of St. Helen’s Oratory here along with a National Trust Car Park and National Coastwatch lookout. Like the lighthouse, Coastwatch plays a vital role in the safety of shipping. Read about the history of the area on our blog: West Penwith - Through the ages.

Things to do

Priest Cove
The popular rocky beach at Priest Cove has a small, man-made tidal pool, which makes a safe place for children to swim and the dog friendly beach makes it an ideal place for a family day out. Priest’s Cove looks out towards the Brisons, where an annual swim from Brisons into Priest’s Cove takes place. The Brisons rock formation, just off the beach is said to resemble Charles De Gaulle in the bath!

Cape Cornwall Golf Course
A par 69 challenge on a natural course ranging across farmland and cliffs with a mix of challenging holes. 
Read more on our blog post about Golf Courses in West Cornwall.

Ride the Open-Top Bus
If you want to give your feet and legs a rest, you can hop on the No 300 Bus, known as the open-top. The double decker trundles through high-hedged Cornish roads. It goes on a circular route around West Penwith. It's easy to hop on and to hop off. Don't forget that sunscreen!!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

November 2018

Well to be honest I was a little dubious about this property when we booked it as we always stop in Cove Cottage a little nearer the Cape,in fact we are there again next month. We've never stopped in a apartment as we prefer a cottage and I was a little concerned if we would experience a lot of noise from other visitors in the adjoining apartments. But to be honest it's all credit to the owners on how beautiful this apartment is,so beautifully decorated and lovely fixtures and fittings, was truly a wonderful holiday which I would like you to pass on to the owners. Plus also we didn't hear a sound from the adjoining residents and to be honest we're that impressed with this apartment we've already booked it again for next April. I would also just like to say again how impressed we are with Aspect holidays,so helpful a truly professional company. Thanks you.

September 2018

This little apartment is just perfect and the view is out of this world. What a lovely place to be.

July 2018

Ocean View, 9 Nanpean Barn, is a perfectly equipped apartment for a wonderful, relaxing stay at Cape Cornwall. The views from the lounge and the kitchen across to Cape Cornwall are outstanding, a view you will never tire off. The Cornish cream tea on arrival, just adds to that final touch of perfection, why stay anywhere else!

July 2018

Ocean view is a great place in variable weather.

The paintings and prints are very enjoyable. All the iconic west penwith coastal scenes.

The only downside is the long staircase. But I used the laundry room to store items like boots .

April 2018

An excellent bolt hole to have your own personal space with great views and nice walks. In winter it is very quiet and gives you time to contemplate the sea and scenery.

January 2018

We've now stayed at Ocean View four times, and that speaks for itself.

August 2017
