Holidays in Lamorna

Lamorna Cove is a beautiful and secluded area of Cornwall sat between the pretty harbour town of Mousehole and the glorious Porthcurno beach. You can walk the coastal path to both of these locations, or if you’re feeling adventurous, walk all the way to Land’s End! Lamorna Cove is the perfect base to enjoy a self catering holiday and to explore the further reaches of West Cornwall.

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.

Top tip

Walk the coast path from Lamorna to Mousehole for some truly breathtaking views!

Things to do at Lamorna

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.

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.

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’!

Great location to explore Lamorna, Mousehole and the surrounding area. Well furnished, decorated and good standard of equipment. Property is in a very quiet and private location near the top of a hill and the access track is fairly narrow and steep so may not be suitable for all vehicle types, certainly not suitable for some sports cars or large vans/MPVs.

It's great to hear you had a lovely stay at The Haven. As you rightly said, this cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but close enough to easily access the beautiful towns and beaches of the far west. It is quite typical in these sorts of locations to find properties with smaller private access lanes, which may not suit everyone, so we try to warn of this in the website description. We do hope this was what you had expected. Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Lucy, Customer Services

Nicely positioned property for touring the area. The property is nicely furnished giving a very relaxed feel inside and out You need to be aware that the shared access drive to the property is challenging if you have a larger vehicle or low sports type car

What a gem of a house! Being up on the hill in the evening sun overlooking the fields and sea in total quiet…what more could you ask for. We’ll be back!

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Cornwall staying at The Haven. The house has everything you could need, it was fully equipped with comfortable beds and spacious rooms. The views are far reaching across the fields to the sea. As per other reviews, the road to The Haven is steep and narrow with many pot holes, but once you are through it is worth it. We ordered a food delivery from Tesco, but the driver was unable to get up the road as it was too narrow for the van, we met the driver at the bottom of the hill and transferred the delivery to our car. Lamorna is a good location, close to Mousehole and Penzance. There is a lovely walk down the bridal path to the village of Castallack. The Haven ticked all our boxes, we will be returning next year. Thank you.

What a wonderful find! The Haven is a relaxing paradise! The views of the sea and surrounding are stunning from the patio and bedroom and the garden, with all its nooks and crannies, and edged by woodland were fun to explore. A bridleway/pathway right outside your door too, to Castallack, Lamorna and even to Mousehole was a bonus. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. The double bed was especially sumptuous and cosy and hard to get out of. The only concern was the long 'driveway'/bridleway up to The Haven. Very uneven with potholes and gravel at the start and steep and twisty. Just have to drive slowly and very carefully, and then it's ok. Don't let this stop you going thou, soooo worth it, even in bad weather, you felt cosy and sheltered there, and when the sun shone, well, go and see for yourself! We will return I hope. Thank you.

We had a lovely week in this spacious property in a very peaceful location. Lovely garden. Well equipped cottage. A little isolated if you want to park up the car for the week but a great base from which to explore the area if you don't mind a short drive. The information states that the approach to the cottage is narrow and they are not joking! Parts of the lane feel more like a bridleway than a lane, and manoeuvring 2 cars into the car parking space is definitely not for the faint hearted. That said, if you only have one car, it will be much easier.

It's great to hear you had such a great stay at The Haven. This rural cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, which does mean that the private track leading up to the property can be tricky if you are not used to driving on narrower unmade roads, but we hope you agree that the idyllic landscape is well worth the journey! We do try to make this as clear as possible on the property description, so we hope it was what you were expecting. Parking spaces are classed as being suited for average sized cars (we give the guide of a VW golf) unless we state otherwise, so larger cars may be a tighter squeeze. Katy, Customer Services

Delightful setting, tucked away along a private track. Beautiful views with a sunny seating area for evening dining. Lovely walks to Mousehole, for the brave along the cliff top or a gentle stroll inland.

Far from the madding crowd you cannot beat this cottage for the location. Yes - it is a really windy and steep track going up to it but then you get the beautiful views. We have been coming here since it was first converted into a holiday cottage and although we have tried other cottages this one cannot be beaten for its tranquility and stunning gardens.

We had a lovely stay in this well presented and equipped cottage. The location is very quiet which was just what we wanted. The views from the cottage are just lovely.

The haven is an exceptional comfortable home with beautiful and peaceful surroundings with stunning views at the top of a very steep hill. We had a compact car fully loaded with luggage, 3 adults and a large dog and we just about made it up. The potholes were larger than expected probably more suitable for a larger engine car. But this didn’t detract from having a fabulous stay, The house is well equipped and the owners have provided comprehensive information on the area, recommendations of restaurants and bars and have really put the effort into ensuring any stay at the haven is one that you will enjoy. The cream tea and initial supplies were a welcome surprise after a 5 and a half hour journey. Great location for touring around that part of Cornwall. Looking forward to returning in 2024.

We loved the steep and wiggly lane, the beautiful garden, the setting, the view, the flowery footpath. It was all a lovely surprise especially when opening the door to such a welcoming and light- filled house, with cream tea laid ready as well. The sunny balcony area is a great asset.

Lovely cottage, very comfy bed, everything there you need Be aware the drive to the cottage from the road is very rough, so no sports cars. Also they so no dogs in the bedrooms in the info pack when you get there which had we known before hand we would've booked as we had a very unhappy dog

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Being in a more rural and peaceful location, down a private unmade track, this is something that may need to be considered for certain vehicles, not just at this property, but at any advertised as being down private tracks, which is quite common here in Cornwall. They can get a little lumpier after a lot of rainfall as well, so can vary through the year. It is always worth checking with the team here before booking if you are planning on bringing a low-slung vehicle. We are sorry if the stipulations on dogs in bedrooms was not what you expected. This is something in place across all properties that we market and is detailed within our T's&C's. It is such a lovely area of Cornwall and a perfect spot for a peaceful, rural escape so we do hope that you still enjoyed it here. Aspects Holidays, Customer Services

If you are a walker (especially if you are not) there is an easy and lovely footpath directly from the end of the drive which goes to Castallack. From there you can walk down to The Wink, which is again open, we had v good lunch there. Easy access to Kemyell Nature reserve and note the standing stones on your walk up. Lovely to watch hare in the garden and some bird life. Walk down to the Pottery where you can get light, or more, in the way of refreshment. Beautiful views ever changing, very peaceful, truly a haven.

The house is really a dream and fulfills all wishes. The beautiful view over the sea, the forest and the surrounding meadows brings the purest relaxation. The interior is nicely and discreetly decorated, you will find everything you need and you will feel at home from the first moment. Although we personally didn't find it a negative, there are a few aspects that need to be considered: the road from the main road to the house is quite steep, narrow and bumpy, the garden is not fenced and the access to the house is somewhat difficult for people with restricted mobility due to rather uneven and high stone steps. But everything is listed in the description of the house, so it wasn't a surprise... All in all, we had a wonderful vacation at The Haven and would not hesitate to recommend and book it again.

Neat, well laid out cottage with a common lounge / diner / kitchen and separate sleeping bathrooms in opposite sides of the cottage. Very snug and picturesque. Good views and a large garden.

The Haven is a lovely place to stay, In a good location. Quiet and peaceful has everything you need in a holiday home to enjoy yourself in Cornwall. We will be returning to The Haven.

Had a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage. It’s our second stay here and won’t be our last. Perfect for walking and visiting lovely coastlines. Half an hours drive to st ives. Beautiful coastal walk to Mousehole. Cottage is fully equipped and lovely scones on arrival. Thank you x

The Haven is exactly that! A peaceful cottage in a secluded spot perfect for relaxing in. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with everything that we needed in a home from home break. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch too. Would not necessarily recommend for people with mobility issues due to sloping garden and 3 steep steps with no handrail to property.
We couldn’t find a visitors book to sign - but would have left a lovely message thanking the owners for our stay if there were one. Sandra Dunn April 2022

Nice quiet location; the Haven is comfortable and a pleasure to stay in.

If you are thinking about staying at The Haven don't hesitate, book it today. Definitely a 10/10

Very secluded, peaceful location with great views and only a stone's throw from everything in West Cornwall. Excellent family holiday.

Our third stay at this great house and garden in idyllic location. Ideal for active families close to stunning beaches at Pedn Vounder and Porthcurno. Not an issue for us, but vehicular access is from a long steep unmade and uneven track.

Fantastically clean and comfortable cottage with excellent views, just like the details on website. Easy access to West Cornwall, very quiet and the only drawback is the steep narrow track from main road up to the cottage, although it does get easier and it wouldn’t put us off returning !

Fantastic property in a great location. Felt very isolated (though it is semi-detached you don’t notice) but easy access to all of the West Cornwall hotspots. Terrific for the dog with a great footpath for walks. The garden isn’t enclosed but is large and as it is at the end of a lane there is no traffic to worry about. The setting is superb and the views (when the mist/low cloud lifted) we’re fantastic.

Absolutely beautiful cottage. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wonderful views and a lovely big garden which our dog loved. We had a lovely week staying there. Only slight disadvantage is the narrow single track lane to the cottage but apart from that we couldn't fault it.

A very pleasant cottage in a beautiful, quiet position up a rough single track (the ruts in the track are worse than last year so beware if you have a previous vehicle). Yes, somewhere to escape from normality. However, the cottage needs attention, especially the cleanliness.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were sorry to see that upon returning to The Haven you found the level of cleanliness wasn't to its usual high standard. Since we received your feedback the housekeeping team carried out a deep clean and the property has had some decoration work carried out. Whilst the property is located at the bottom of an unmade lane, which may prove tricky for some cars, we hope that you will agree that it is worth it once you get there, as the property is in such a fantastic, peaceful location. We completely agree; it is a great 'escape from normality'. We do hope that we will get the chance to welcome you back to Cornwall again soon. Ben, Customer Services

The Haven is a very comfortable and cosy cottage which was extremely clean. The garden is lovely, very peaceful and we spent some enjoyable evenings sat outside on the patio admiring the views with the sea in the distance. The cream tea awaiting us on our arrival was much appreciated and if we return to that part of Cornwall we would certainly not hesitate to stay there again.

Property absolutely beautiful, we very much enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable. All as per description except the wifi which will barely load a page. Impossible to speak to aspects holidays if you need help though so a very poor customer service experience unfortunately.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to hear that you had issues with the wifi. The team have since raised this issue with the owner and Openreach have now resolved the wifi problem. We also wanted to apologise for the communication issues when you contacted us about an item that you had left in the property. A member of the team had replied to your email but unfortunately, we have been having issues with our email provider which has caused a high number of emails going to spam folders and a lot of very frustrated customers who have been left thinking that we have not responded to queries, when we have. This is absolutely not the 'norm' for us; we pride ourselves on delivering a great level of customer service and we are working on moving over to a new provider. I am aware that one of my colleagues got in touch to discuss this with you when we received this feedback and I do hope that we have been able to restore your faith in our customer service standards with the service that you have received since. Tanya, Customer Services

a lovely peaceful area,ideal for walking even in winter,the haven is really warm and cosy!

Had the most wonderful stay here. Beautiful,peaceful location. Will definitely be returning. The cottage had all that was needed and more. Cream tea a lovely touch. Perfect place/location to truly relax. Garden amazing. PERFECT in every way!!!!

This place is magic. The property name the Haven is a perfect description. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Haven. It has excellent views across the countryside and is in a very peaceful location. The cottage was immaculately clean with a cream tea awaiting us as a welcome gift. Highly recommended. The only caveat is that owners of cars with limited ground clearance should be aware that the access track to the property is in poor condition and quite uneven in places.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback and your helpful note on the track to the property. Unmade tracks like this can change quite quickly and dramatically after lots of rain, so thanks to your comment, we have now added a note to the website description stating, please also note that due to the rural nature of the property the access track is a little rough in places. We hope that this will allow those interested in booking this property, to be fully informed of this before making the journey down here. Thanks again, and we hope to see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a wonderful stay at The Haven. The cottage was clean and welcoming with milk and scones on arrival, a lovely touch. The large garden is beautifully kept, with an array of flowers to admire. Our dog loved running and playing in it.

Beautiful cottage and stunning gardens and outlook. Can’t be beaten for peace and quiet and quality. The Haven is heaven on earth!

A light & airy cottage in a spectacular position sitting in a hillside garden surrounded by beautiful countryside. The cottage was very clean & comfortable with large bedrooms.We felt we had escaped reality, especially being able to walk along tracks & footpaths directly from the cottage through fields full of wild flowers.

A beautiful stay once again. Complete luxury with stunning views; we would be happy living here. A must for a relaxing, peaceful stay. The lovely cream tea was such a lovely touch. Thank you again for a perfect stay.

This cottage has to be the nicest one we’ve ever stayed in. The sea and country views were beyond beautiful. We were very reluctant to leave as we had such a lovely time here and can’t wait to visit again. The owners left us a cream tea and milk which was so lovely and very tasty. Every detail had been thought of. A perfect, relaxing break.

Any of the positive comments already made.

Good access to lots of lovely places eg Minack theatre, Sennen Cove, and further afield - Porthleven, St Ives, Lizard peninsular.

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.

Unfortunately not applicable since the owners we understand are selling up very soon.

Super Cottage, fantastic location.

Lovely cottage, beautiful location,

A very comfortable house with a lots of charm in a beautiful Setting. We spent a wonderful time there.

A fantastic cottage in a lovely tranquil setting. If we ever moved to Cornwall The Haven would definitely fit the bill of the type of house we would like to buy.

the haven is just as advertised. a beautiful cottage in a peaceful location with excellent secluded large garden. the cottage has everything inside you could need and is very comfortable. the havens location also means it is central to lands end, Penzance, St Ives & Marazion and there are many paths from the cottage to explore We will definitely be back in the future

Ideal. We are reluctant to leave.

The welcome pack was kind and appreciated. We totally enjoyed our stay in this delightful house. A lot of thought by the owners had put in to provide a relaxing and comfortable holiday. Thank you

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

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.

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.

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.
