THE LOCATION A three-acre sandy beach and crystal-clear sea awaits visitors to this beautiful fishing village. Only ten miles from Helston and twenty-one miles from Falmouth Coverack offers peaceful, yet easily accessible, living. Unlike some fishing villages there are no single-track roads to Coverack and indeed a double decker bus services the village.
The community is an important reason why so many people move to Coverack and our Dave who works in our Heather & Lay Falmouth office and lives in Coverack, champions the sociable community as a major reason for choosing Coverack as home. Dave would be very willing to talk to anyone wishing to know more about the activities in the village.
The local shop offers most provisions and Bryn & Rob run Archie's Loft where you can get Cornish Roskilly's ice cream. The village 'local' is The Paris Hotel, built by the Redruth Brewery back in 1907 and named after the liner SS PARIS which ran aground on the headland on Whit Monday 1899. Ian & Lou are the fantastic hosts here offering good quality food and drink (do not forget the Wednesday night quiz) or if it is just fish and chips you are after then pop along to Mark at the old lifeboat house. Robin & Chris can teach you windsurfing, hire out kayaks or paddle boards and Marshall & Hannah offer a wide selection of local crafts/gifts in the Old Mill House.
Plenty of good walks are on the doorstep along the coastal path where hidden beaches, wildlife, flora and rocky outcrops present great interest, peaceful and spectacular scenery.
THE PROPERTY Made of stone almost a hundred years ago, the main house is called Tremayne and is rendered and painted white. There are three bedrooms on the first floor and another possible bedroom on the ground floor (currently used as a dining room). The sitting room leads to a square conservatory that has very nice sea views. The kitchen and two of the bedrooms also enjoy the sea views and being as the property is quite a lot higher than the sea there is distant views of the waves breaking on Lowland Point. Outside the garden wraps around the house and gives lots of seating areas to enjoy the vista, off-road parking is aplenty and there are three useful wooden sheds.
Pen-Gwyns is also located in the garden and is a newly built one-bedroom cottage. This would be perfect for an extended family member or as an income from the lucrative holiday let market. Very modern in design and quality built by local craftsmen the cottage has a separate patio area, off-road parking and large balcony with sea view!
