Morvoren (Sea Maiden) Cottage is located in the heart of The Square on the Lizard Peninsula. Terraced and set over three floors, it is within convenient walking distance of shops, a tea room and a pub, and has excellent access to the South West Coastal Path. The Lizard Peninsula is the most southerly point of the British mainland and boasts its own unique landscape. Explore wonderful coves with pretty thatched cottages and colourful fishing boats, or relax on beautiful beaches, including nearby Kynance Cove. The rare geology of the area creates a haven for exceptional plants, flowers and wildlife. Pretty fishing coves and harbours such as Cadgwith Cove and Mullion are just a short drive away.
The area is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and will appeal to families and couples looking for a relaxing holiday within easy reach of a choice of beaches. The Lizard Lighthouse and Heritage Centre is open to the public, and you can climb to the top and take advantage of the glorious views. Visit St Winwaloe Church right on the beach at Gunwalloe - Church Cove dates back to the 13th century. The Marconi Centre at Poldhu Cove offers an insight into advances in media and transatlantic radio communication, and you can stop off en route at Roskilly’s famous farm to watch how they make the local ice cream and fudge. You can also enjoy walking, scuba diving, cycling, golf or simply relax and watch the ever-changing sea conditions, together with abundant wildlife including dolphins, basking sharks, seals and an array of birdlife. Beach ¼ mile. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Pros cottage was in a perfect location -close to all amenities and only a 15min walk to lizard point. Cottage was nicely decorated and relatively clean Cons we found someone else’s swimming top and goggles down the side of the bed plastic coated mattress protectors and plastic coated mattresses sachets of milk 4 months out of date Neighbours either side patrolling their property and parking their cars right up to the end of their property boundary (even though there was plenty of space for them to more forward) which made it very difficult for us to park our car outside this cottage and we had to park at an angle and block the road so we were able to pack our things into the car at the end of our stay

We loved our stay in Morvoren Cottage. The location is brilliant, right in the heart of the village, with beautiful walks to the coast in every direction. And the house was just lovely with fab views from the top bedroom, very comfy beds and really nicely decorated throughout. It was just what we wanted and we'd love to return.

Nicely decorated and generally comfortable. Plenty of room for the 3 of us; 6 would be quite tight. Although there were ‘house’ instructions and a tourist folder, these could benefit from updating and more local input (e.g. on lovely walks from cottage). A simple guide to main appliances etc would have been helpful. Disappointing that TV required Roku to operate. TV aerial fallen on roof, known for some time. No note of which of 4 handsets (and 2 in drawer!) to use. No local news possible and no TV’s working in bedrooms. The ‘Supermarket in the Square’ is now Ann’s Pasty Shop; there’s no mention of the excellent Tregullas Farm Shop nearby for all needs. No visitors book to browse previous local recommendations. Some attention to detail required – dusty under sofas; some cobwebs; bulbs needed in dining room, fire, and extractor hood. Initial supply for log burner not provided as advertised (‘owners not requested this in 3 years’). Door could not be opened anyway. Email confirmation includes (very) out of date emergency/enquiry contact details. Despite these suggestions, otherwise very good overall. Location ideal access for coastal walking.
