The Experience

You’ll fall in love with the views from this sweet cottage on the edge of Coverack. Soak up every drop of sun on the south facing terrace or snuggle in front of the open fire – it’s an easy place to be with friends or family. A generous hamper is left for you. 

There’s a huge box of toys for kids in the sitting room, a shed with fishing nets and body boards and a play park at the end of the terrace. Walk five minutes to Harbour Lights café for lunch, there’s a shop open all year for basics and a couple of gift shops, otherwise drive to Helston (12 miles) for more choice and supermarkets.

You’re minutes from the coastal path for cliff top walks or take your pick of the beaches: Coverack beach, below the cottage, is huge and Mear’s beach is a 15 minute walk further along the coast path. Kynance Cove is stunning but gets busy in the summer; try the quieter Carleon Cove at Poltesco on the east of the Lizard.

It’s been amazing to stay here! We love all of the caring attention to detail and we’ve trooped the kids around in all weathers to all kinds of amazing places - beaches, Kynance, Bosahan .... it’s just been wonderful. The views of this amazing landscape have been remarkable, and we will be on the road with lots of great memories to take with us.


The cottage is glorious - so comfortable, with everything we need, and the view is spectacular. We had a relaxing and fun few days - the cottage is such a wonderful and special place to come back to each day. Still dreaming of the view!


Battery Cottage is sublime in every respect, a much loved family home. Captivating sea views views from all the windows and a gorgeous south-facing sun terrace overlooking the water just beckons you to stop and let life roll on by. The cottage itself says come in, come in... it's so charming, totally quirky and feels a real home from home with its gorgeous furnishings and lots of homemade art work and crafts on the walls. I'd defy anyone not to be bowled away by this place, at any time of year, but of course if you do get sunny warm sunshiney days then you'll never want to leave.

The neighbourhood

There’s heaps to do without getting in a car: get on the South West coastal path at the bottom of the terrace– it’s a 12 mile walk to Helston which takes in dramatic cliffs, fishing villages, woodland and a creek crossing. Coverack has a strong community feel with cafes, a pub and general store, and the beach is perfect for picnicking. St Keverne is a five minute drive for post office, butcher etc..

Victoria lives and works in Somerset so you’re looked after by a local . Victoria has three young boys and they like to escape here as often as possible - immersing themselves in the community. She has a good eye for design and the house feels much-loved.
