The location of this beautifully appointed fisherman’s cottage is probably one of the most awe-inspiring to be found anywhere in the UK.
Whilst the wonders of digital photography will undoubtedly speak for themselves, it is virtually impossible to describe in words, the astounding vista and ever changing canvas that can be viewed from this cosy little Cornish cottage. Dating back over 150 years, Cove Cottage nestles in the very heart of this National Trust owned peninsula (only one of two in the country) and looks out over the majestic Brisons Rocks and the vast expanse of the mighty Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Set in just under two acres of land, the front lawn and extensive private land sweeps down almost to the edge of Priest’s Cove which is still home to a number of local fisherman who land their daily catch of fresh fish and Cornish Blue Lobster – perfect for that al fresco supper on the patio as the sun slips over the horizon! The property has up to now been in private ownership and is now available for holiday use.
Cape Cornwall (The definition of a Cape is a projectoray of land where two currents or Oceans meet) remains totally unspoilt and is a Mecca for coastal walkers, golfers, anglers, bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts in general.
Recently extended to provide a kitchen and west facing conservatory, the property is now available to rent all year round. The provision of full central heating, an additional wood burning stove and double glazing throughout means that you can be extremely warm and snug in the winter as you watch the full force of the Atlantic as it smashes into the cape and the surrounding cliffs below.
The pretty market town of St. Just is a short drive with its plethora of pubs, butchers, bakers, shops and galleries. Guests at Cove Cottage can also take advantage of temporary membership at the Cape Cornwall Golf Resort (walking distance) which offers a range of amenities such as golf (obviously!) an indoor swimming pool, gym, bar and restaurant.
Cove Cottage is a picturesque little cottage in a stunning location but it will not be a secret for long – so book early!
