Details

Pebbles, Cadgwith Cottages

Pebbles is a traditional fisherman's semi-detached cottage situated in the heart of the Cadgwith Cove. Sunny and south-facing, the whitewashed cottage provides very comfortable accommodation and is full of character.

Pebbles has its own patio and sheltered garden with sea glimpes, which makes a lovely private suntrap and provides ample seating to enjoy alfresco meals. It is only a few yards away from the beach where you can bathe or watch the daily activities of the local fishermen, and central to all the amenities of the cove.

You can enjoy freshly caught fish and crab in the Old Cellars Restaurant or in the Cadgwith Cove Inn, the local pub and social hub of the village. The Inn is the venue for a thriving Folk Club on Tuesday nights and traditional Cornish singing every Friday. In high season, seafood barbecues, fishing competitions, gig racing, a regatta and a folk music day are social highlights of this charming, unspoilt village in South West Cornwall.

Local Area

Cadgwith is a picturesque fishing village with whitewashed thatched cottages lining the sides of the valley and a small fleet of colourful fishing boats winched up on the shingle beach. The fact that the boats are still in use and the local pub (The Cadgwith Cove Inn) is renowned for it's singing of Cornish songs of a Friday evening is testament to the traditional character of this village still being alive and well. The village also has a thriving gig club. Cadgwith featured in the film 'Ladies in Lavender'.

The cove has two beaches - the fishing beach where you can watch the daily activities of the fishermen. A small rocky outcrop called the Todden separates this from the adjacent (swimming) beach. The South West Coastal Path leads from either side of the Cadgwith, with magnificent views.

As seen in Monty Hall's 2012 series: 'The Fisherman's Apprentice'

Directions From Helston:
From Helston, head south on the A3083 following the signs for the Lizard.

Follow the A3083 for approximately 9 miles passing the Mullion turning and the Lizard Cider Barn on your right. Continue towards the Lizard for another half mile and then take the next left hand turning signposted for Cadgwith (black "heavy vehicles" sign).

Follow this road for just under a mile towards Chyheira on your left at which point the road bends sharply to the left, continue to the left for half a mile then take the right hand turning through two granite pillars towards the Cove. As you reach the Cove, you will pass the Watch House shop on the left and next to it, the Gig Shed. Immediately after the Gig Shed turn left into a cobbled lane, drive past Rose Cottage and through the wooden gates into The Square, Pebbles has an alocated parking space next to the cottage.

Guestbook



We booked for our family, 5 adults and Dexter the dog. All had a great time. Cottage was great everything you needed and with wifi and Sky. Garden catches the sun all afternoon with chairs and loungers. Fiona was really helpful and made sure we felt at home. Coastal walks and circular walks are lovely. Wonderful fresh fish, lobster and crab from the fishermen landed 2mins from our plates. Pub - great beer food and breakfast if you are feeling lazy and locals all very friendly. Good base to travel around this wonderful part of the UK. We recommend Newton Equestrian Centre all abilities catered for the 1.5 hour beach ride was amazing. Cornish Curry Company Helston only open two/three nights a week. Great value really tasty organic curry cooked by Cornish people - take away only. Cadgwith and Pebbles? You wont regret it :-)

Owen S, 

The cottage is very comfortable , and has lots of character . Equipped with all we needed plus rainy day activities which fortunately we didn't need . Lovely garden area , and great to have parking . The pub is probably less than a minute away and we were served great food by friendly staff Stayed while walking the South west coastal path, surrounding area is beautiful Spotted the seals at the lizard Had an amazing holiday here .

Maggie, 

This is a lovely, cosy cottage in the heart of Cadgwith village. It is completely unspoilt and retains lots of old fashioned features, but also has wifi and Sky TV which is a bonus for rainy evenings. Don't expect a modern kitchen, it is super simple which is a delight and meant that our evening meals were simple and delicious too - who needs anything else but the freshest of fish from the fish shop a few steps away from the cottage? It is one of the few dwellings in the heart of the village with a garden. Sitting in the garden gives lovely views of the village and the sea is only a short walk away.

Claire, 

'We loved the location, the cove, the opportunity to be right next to the coastal walks and to be able to buy fresh fish daily from the Fisherman's shack. The close proximity to the local Inn was a bonus on days when you didn't want to cook. The people in the village/cove were all very friendly and great hosts. The cottage has all you need to keep up with modern life but also allows you to switch off when you want to. The owners of Pebbles were always helpful and on hand should you need advice'.

Mr & Mrs B, 

'We have stayed in Pebbles twice now, both times we have really enjoyed ourselves. We found the level of accommodation very satisfactory and comfortable, we have already recommended it to friends and family and are booking for next year as we love staying in the cove. It is lovely to be in stumbling distance to the pub and the cellars restaurant'.

Mrs R, 

'We found that the cottage was really homely and had a friendly atmosphere to it. We had a fantastic Christmas. There is nothing we would change about it. The people of Cadgwith were really friendly and the swim really made our Christmas Day. Well the boys went in us girls took photos! We also got to enjoy the fantastic coastline and have found a new favourite beach in Kennack Sands.'

Mr & Mrs M, 

'We enjoyed the stay at Pebbles very much. Our kids were intrigued by the mystery that there really seemed to be a secret passway in the house (inside the walls between living room and the parlour, on both sides of the walk-through approx 10sqft), so they easily believed we lived in an old smuggler cottage that had an underground tunnel to the sea ;-)

'Cadgwith was beautiful and we enjoyed the cliff paths, the beaches in Kynance Cove & Kennack Sands and the wonderful nature. We were positively surprised about the high standard of furniture and equipment in the cottage. It was very cosy and comfortable.'

Mr L,
