The Haven was the perfect base for our Cornish getaway. We loved the view and the cosy gas burner (and so did our dog!). The location of the cottage is perfect, it had a lovely remote feel whilst being close to amenities and lots of places to explore. The owners have really thought of everything, and we were even greeted with a cream tea and bottle of wine which was a lovely touch.

Lamorna

The cliffs around Lamorna Cove are beautiful. The cove has been known for fishing and quarrying in the past. It was also a haunt for artists such as 'Lamorna Birch', particularly in the 1930s. The Cove also has an arts festival and a flourishing village hall, in which you might see international performers from time to time on the Carn to Cove Rural Touring Circuit. The cove lies at the end of a woodland valley, as does St. Loy, a little further south along the coast. 

To read about the history of the area, check out our blog on West Penwith - Through the ages.

Lamorna Cove

When the tide is out, Lamorna Cove sports a small sandy beach, but its rocky nature means the area is better known for diving and snorkelling. A nearby beach café serves hot and cold snacks or park up and enjoy an ice cream while looking out to sea. In the summer season you can hire motorboats and kayaks or if you’d rather something less active, the blue waters are perfect for bathing. If a day at the beach is your thing, check out our guide to Sandy beaches in West Cornwall for other beaches in the area which are well worth visiting.

Drink and dine

You won't be without places to eat when you enjoy a self catering holiday in Lamorna. The nearby Cove Restaurant serves a delicious, seasonal menu while the Lamorna Wink provides a refreshing mid-afternoon beverage! Drive a few minutes to the nearby village of Mousehole and dine out at the Ship Inn or 2 Fore Street, a bistro-style restaurant on the harbour front. Find out more about Eating out in Mousehole >

Things to do near Lamorna

With the harbour town of Penzance just a short drive away, there's plenty to keep you entertained on a self catering holiday in Lamorna. For ideas on what to do during your stay with us, check out our blog post on Days out around Penzance.

A trip to the stunning tidal island of St Michaels Mount is a must if you're in the area.

Walks

Lamorna is the perfect place to enjoy the stunning scenery that the West Cornwall offers. With coastal paths to the east and west, and other inland walks to traditional Cornish villages, ramblers will be in their element. Visit the ancient celtic site of the Merry Maiden stone circle on route to Porthcurno or make the famous 'Good Friday' walk to the quaint fishing village of Mousehole. Read more on our blog on Mousehole Walks.

A true story...

A lot of famous people holiday in the hills and coves of Cornwall. In the 1970s, three locals (an out of work actor, a DJ, and a young writer) decided to start a hospital radio station, named Duchy Hospital Radio. They set up in a caravan in a car park behind West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. The actor and writer were particularly interested in spoken word programmes and secured an Uher, the must-have portable reel to reel audio tech of the day. The actor discovered that a famous person was getting away from it all at Lamorna Cove Hotel.  An interview with George Harrison would get Duchy Hospital Radio noticed! The famous Beatle was only too pleased to help and invited them to join him at the hotel for a cream tea. For an hour or more the actor and writer chatted amiably to George about being famous, hiding away in Cornwall, what the other Beatles were like, and the price of tea and chips. Back in the Duchy Radio caravan, the novice reporters soon discovered that in the excitement of meeting their hero, the actor had forgotten to press ‘Record’!

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.

A spacious, comfortable and quiet get-away in idyllic rural surroundings and gorgeous views of the coast, and with wifi and mobile phone reception, which can be rare around Lamorna. This is second visit and we hope to return

June 2015

The Haven, Lamorna is beautiful, peaceful & well- equipped- was accurately described on the website. Amazing sights nearby & the Bridleway system around here are really interesting.

May 2015

Had a fabulous week. The weather was excellent. But even if it had not been the cottage was an excellent place to relax and just take in the view and de-stress. Would definitely recommend this as a wonderful holiday place for complete relaxation and re charging your batteries. It is also easy to get to places on both North and South Coasts of Cornwall. Really want to come back soon to resume our adventure in Cornwall.

April 2015

Please note this cottage is lovely but it is semi detached.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Reading through our description; you are quite right in highlighting that it has not been clearly stated that this property is semi-detached. We have now amended our description to highlight that it is. Although semi-detached, it is down a private track for just these 2 properties and set in a very peaceful location, with amazing scenery, so do not be deterred by this. Tanya, Customer Services.
