Cadgwith is a picture postcard perfect fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula in south Cornwall. A clutch of thatched and whitewashed cottages are grouped behind the small fishing harbour where fishing is still active. This is the kind of location to take children to, to watch boxes of live crabs and fish being landed and perhaps buy the freshest seafood to take back for dinner.
Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Cadgwith
There is a small beach of greyish sand and pebbles, more of a beach for sunbathing than sandcastles although a paddle would be fun. A welcoming pub and restaurant offers holidaymakers and walkers from the coastal path drinks and meals. There is apparently live music on Thursdays should anyone book a self catering cottage in Cadgwith for a longer stay. It is certainly one of the most perfect Cornish cottage locations in south Cornwall.
Like many Cornish holiday villages, arts and crafts are present. The art gallery is accessed by a ladder into a loft where local art work is displayed, much of it with a seaside theme. Cadgwith is an ideal location in Cornwall for a painting holiday because there are so many stunning scenes of cliffs, cottages, harbour and beach in one place. A pay and display car park is at the top of the village, accessed via an upward path past cottages with their flower-filled gardens and through the woods.
A wise choice of holiday cottage in Cadgwith and other Cornish coastal villages is one with its own parking. Find out more about self-catering holidays in Cadgwith and places to visit nearby.
