There is a brewery at Coverack for beer lovers! There are a number of good eating establishments dotted around the peninsula. "South" at Manaccan is a good find, plus "New Yard" at Trelowarren, "Kota" and "Amelie's" at Porthleven, not to mention the inevitable Cornish pasties - Leggy's in Ruan Minor or the famous Ann's Pasties at Lizard.

The Lizard is an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and has some spectacular coastal walks. It is England's most southerly point and the highlights include early Spring flowers, the Lizard lighthouse, swimming and surfing from sandy beaches, delightful fishing coves, sailing on the Helford river, heather covered moors in Autumn, open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food! There are loads of places to visit and highlights include Lizard Point, walks along the coastal path, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine.
There are so many activities to choose from locally. You can take a boat trip across the beautiful Helford River and explore the gardens at Trebah. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven. There is great diving on the Manacles and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can find great surf at Porthleven or Loe Bar.

A little piece of tranquility

James Cottage is a beautiful converted barn cottage within easy access of beaches and tourist destinations. It is in a wonderful hamlet which is peaceful and a great place to chill and relax. There are plenty of wildlife, including bats and owls to keep you company and lovely to hear in the evenings when you can sit outside in the secluded garden. There are pubs and restaurants in the area that are very dog and family friendly providing fantastic foods for you to sample, especially the Halzephron Inn at Gunwalloe and the Shipwrights Inn at Helford. Simon and his wife provide a friendly welcome and the dogs are well catered for with a plethora of walks in the area. A welcome pack awaits your arrival with lots of tasty goodies and the essentials for the start of your holiday. The three bedrooms are tastfully furnished and the beds are very comfortable. If you like to look good, don't forget to pack a hairdryer as there is not one there. Simon is on hand to help if you need anything or if you want any advice. I would recommend James Cottage to anyone wanting to escape from it all and feel sure I will be back again very soon.

A particularly location

Our stay at James Cottage was wonderful. It's such a lovely place. Here, you believe in fairies and leprechauns. It's absolutely quiet and relaxing. The owner, Simon is so kindly, warm and helpful. He has many good tips, what you can do in the suround. We can recommend James Cottage for People, who loves nature and silence.

A Wonderful Week in James' Cottage

James' Cottage is set amongst some of the most beautiful countryside you would wish to stay. The cottage itself was great for me the wife and 2 dogs, comfortable and very well equipped, the new Log burner stove was an added bonus… (Image not shown on the web page) Simon the owner was great and will be always on hand if you required him to be…but at no stage does he intrude into your relaxing surroundings. For dog owner there is a perfect field next to the cottage to stretch the dog’s legs and plenty of dog friendly walks and Pubs. If you prefer to stay at home and eat in then ask Simon for the outside cooking pot, a fab and tasty treat. My Family have holidayed on the Lizard for well over 20 years and will always be drawn back to its magical beauty. Thanks Simon for a wonderful week.

A lovely cottage close to nature

This is the second time we've stayed at James Cottage and in the out-of-season cooler evenings it's even more cosy than it was before now that it has a wood burner installed. We will definitely be returning to stay here: it's tucked away and very peaceful and the setting is beautiful. The main door opens on to the garden and we sat out there every day. Trees surround the garden and it was lovely hearing the breeze in the leaves and observing the birds, which were very active. When it rained we could sit inside on the sofa and still enjoy these aspects with the top of the stable door open. Our dog loved it too: in the mornings we went through the orchard (20 seconds' walk away) and round the meadow. There is masses to do and see locally. Coverack is a short drive away and is very tranquil. The harbour is tiny and picturesque, and it's fascinating to sit on the wall and watch the fishing boats come and go and sometimes chat with the fishermen. Coverack has the best fish and chips, which you can eat sitting on the harbour wall, and Archies Loft (just above the harbour) is the best (and tiniest) cafe, with lots of character. The beach is good too. And stunning coast path walks in both directions. We did our food and drink shopping at the Spa shop in St Kaverne. The bakery is tucked away in an industrial unit but is worth seeking out for their delicious Cornish pasties. Although we've only been there once, the Greenhouse restaurant is excellent if you want a posh meal. Simon was very welcoming and helpful, and thoughtful in suggesting places to go/things to do which met our specific needs. And his hens produce the most delicious eggs! And his golden retrievers are gorgeous. If you want to stay in a lovely cottage and be close to nature and 'away from it all', we can't recommend James Cottage too highly.

Lovely Cottage

Our stay at James Cottage was superb. Lovely and peaceful surroundings and a joy to hear all the birds. The location was isolated as we wanted, but not to far in any direction to explore places of interest on the Lizard and further afield.

A delightful cottage

This was a delightful cottage in a quiet location. It was clean and tidy with all amenities catered for. Wifi went down but was restored later. Poor reception on the mobile phone but ideal as we were not bothered by uneccasary calls. The location was secluded with orchard and woodlands close by. Ideal for nature lovers, twitchers and landscape photography. Short distances along country lanes to some wonderful villages with opportunities for fishing and sailing. The pubs all offered meals and fresh fish caught locally was always available. The welcome pack provided by the owner was great with several items of local produce. A peaceful stay and will return in the future.

Peace & quiet on the Lizard

We had a very peaceful stay at James' Cottage. The property is tucked away with its pretty garden in a hamlet on the Lizard and there is easy access to all the harbours and villages around that part of Cornwall. We walked several sections of the coastal path mostly in beautiful weather, lucky for us in September. The cottage is cosy and warm but would benefit from some attention in the kitchen and bathroom. Both of which will be on the owner's list to improve I'm sure. The broadband connection was excellent but don't expect to get a mobile signal! All in all a wonderful place to have a holiday, made even better by the owner Simon who was always available. Thanks, Simon!

Lovely cottage

Lovely little cottage tucked away in the heart of the Lizard. Beautifully finished and very comfortable, we were made to feel very much at home. A very few little niggles could be addressed (the lock on the bathroom door, for instance, which was very loose!) would make this near a perfect home away from home.

A lovely place in the Lizard countryside

We returned the second time to James Cottage. It is a small lovely place out in the countryside of the Lizard peninsula. Very peaceful and away from the bulk of tourists and still within 20 minutes drive of different wonderful coves to swim, places to visit or grocery shopping.

Excellent stay

The host, Simon, could not have been any more helpful and welcoming. The cottage is very much a rural retreat, which is just what we were looking for. The atmosphere is so laid back you feel relaxed straight away. As dog owners we have been to places that say 'dog friendly' but are just dog tolerant when you actually get there - but not so at James, our pooch was made as welcome as us by Simon and his two dogs. The cottage is very well equipped and there was a really nice welcome pack, so you don't have to rush straight out to get shopping the minute you get there. Had a lovely time and would happily return.
