Little Ship Cottage (sleeps 4 and a cot), is located in the heart of the beautiful and unspoilt fishing and sailing village of Coverack, on The Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall.

Coverack is regarded by many as one of the most sought after villages on The Lizard Peninsula. It’s architectural and geographical beauty coupled with its sheer tranquillity make this an ideal holiday destination. The village, which has a famous history of smuggling, has small shops within easy walking distance, a pub, cafes and two restaurants.

Coverack beach & bay is ideal for families, and again is within easy walking distance of Little Ship Cottage. The beach is sandy with some rock outcrops which makes exploring the rock pools an exciting pastime. For walking enthusiasts the area offers superb opportunities for exploring the beautiful and varied coastal scenery of The Lizard Peninsula.

This pretty, two bed roomed former Bible Christian Chapel boasts panoramic sea and village views and a well kept walled front garden. The cottage sleeps 4 and a cot. Sorry, we have a strict no smoking and no pets policy in our cottages. All guests will receive a complimentary welcome pack including tea, coffee, milk and essential holiday items such as Cornish clotted cream, strawberry jam and scones!

Little Ship Cottage retains many of its original features including beamed ceilings and thick cob walls. These features have been sympathetically enhanced during the renovation. All beams and doors throughout the cottage have been stripped back and waxed.

The Kitchen
Feautures white farmhouse style units, a Belfast porcelain sink and real granite worktops centres around a traditional farmhouse dining table and antique chapel pew. The utility room to the rear of the cottage has been re-built and features a sky-light window and down stairs toilet. All appliances have been purchased new including hob oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine/tumble dryer. The low casement window features a built-in cushioned window seat to maximise the bay & village views. Colour schemes for the kitchen/dining area are white and stylishly colourful! Previously covered walls have been exposed to reveal their original cob and stone construction.

The Lounge
Features a 26″ LCD Digital TV and DVD. Two, two seater sofas are centred round a rug and the contemporary wood burning stove. A side table with lamp gives a warm lighting effect in the evening, in addition to stylish wall mounted lights. The sash window features a cushioned window seat. The colour scheme is mocca, beige and warm reds. Our ideal has been to mix contemporary with traditional in this room.

Master bedroom
Features a king-size antique style bed with side tables and bedside lamps. Good storage takes the form of a built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers. Village and bay views can be seen from the front facing sashed window which will features a Roman blind. A second window to the side of the cottage features full length curtains and a pelmet rail. The overall design feel is antique French using raspberrry and cream Joie de vivre fabrics.

Bedroom 2
Has pretty Coverack bay views from two front facing sashed windows. We have knocked two bedrooms together to make this a much larger second bedroom. It contains two single antique style white wrought iron beds. Good storage takes the form of a built-in wardrobe and a 4 drawer chest. This room has a nautical / New England theme.

Also upstairs, Little Ship Cottage has a combined toilet and bathroom. Again, we have successfully mixed traditional with a stylish contemporary twist. A modern white bath with chrome fittings features a wall mounted shower above. The toilet and sink are modern in design. Floors and walls feature beige limestone and modern glass tiles. Halogen ceiling spot lights and a wall mounted towel rail are also featured. Heating throughout the cottage takes the form of wall mounted night-storage heaters in addition to the wood burning stove in the lounge. To the front of Little Ship Cottage, there is a delightful cottage garden which directly overlooks Coverack bay. A bbq, and garden furniture table and chairs are provided. Little Ship Cottage has parking just outside the cottage most of the year but is restricted between the hours of 10am – 6pm from June 1st to August 31st. Nearby car parks at either end of the village can be used at these times.

Little Ship Cottage is available holiday rental throughout the year. Out of season short breaks are accepted.
