Super cottage situated along a narrow rutted lane with a footpath down to Pulurrian Cove just outside the garden. Turning spots are limited so follow the instructions you will be given to avoid going too far along the lane. (4G signal is limited as you approach the cottage so open the email before you get there or better still save the instructions, we hadn’t, then couldn’t open them and did go too far)
Two spacious bedrooms, very spacious kitchen lounge area complete with efficient wood burner and shower/bathroom. There is a conservatory with drying rack, plenty of room for outdoor kit)
A great place to cosy up and relax.
Chris is a wonderful host and milk & mince pies on arrivals were very welcome.
Once settled in, the coastal path is wonderful. It’s an easy walk along the cliff top from the cove along to Mullion Harbour and the chocolate factory provides a great stop on the walk back. Heading north, Poldhu cove is a short walk. Continue on and Church Cove awaits then Jangyre ryn and the Gunwalloe Fishing Cove and the excellent Hazelphron Pub. We enjoyed a super Sunday lunch, the seafood Chowder is magnificent. Then walk back or get a taxi.
Further along the Lizard Kynance Cove is well worth a visit as is Lizard point. Whilst there C & E Retallack Butchers offers wonderful meat and most cooking provisions you will need too. Support local businesses, there are Coop’s, Spar, Sainsbury and Tesco supermarkets all within a short drive.
Finally, contact Chris direct and book rather than online via the website.
Cwary Vean Cottage is a nice little cottage with everything you need. The location is perfect to go for a walk to the closeby beach and with beautiful views along the cliffs to the next cove (Mullion Cove or Poldhu Cove) or to charming Mullion. We also used it as a starting point to explore half of Cornwall from here, which is no problem with a car. Having our host Chris and his friendly dog Tilly next door also made us feel safe and comfortable at all times. We had a great time here!
What a great and lucky find! I have already stayed here two years running and would have stayed again this year if circumstances had allowed - however I am booked in for 2019! This is the perfect dog friendly cottage from which to explore Cornwall and the property itself is only a few minutes walk through sheep free fields to a perfect sandy cove - idyllic for early morning dogwalks or days on the beach in clement weather.
There is plenty of parking and the cottage is spacious and very well equipped with a really useful entrance area for boots, dog towels, coats etc. It is centrally heated, so always warm, but there is also a large woodburning stove for cosy nights in - or days if you are a winter visitor like me! The beds are extremely comfortable and there is plenty of storage space in the bright rooms. Unusually for a cottage, the kitchen and living area is surprisingly spacious which is a bonus as the cottage sleeps four, so no falling over each other - or any pets!
The walks either way along the headland to neighbouring coves are perfect, with stunning views and the village is within very easy reach for local shopping or visits to the pubs. Mullion itself is as quaint as only Cornish villages can be, but get in the car and you are within reach of wondrous places all over the Cornish peninsula with something to suit all ages and tastes, from Lands End and the Eden Project to Tintagel - and back via the Minack Open Air Theatre and a plethora of standing stones and burial chambers!
Chris, the owner and his dog Tilly are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful, without being in the slightest intrusive. He lives on site with his wife in the property next door and is a mine of local information should it be required. I would add that as a single woman I would feel very safe should I be staying there alone with this immediate access to the owners.
I would also say book early - many people, like myself, are returning visitors which actually says it all!
A really lovely cottage a few minutes walk from Polurrian cove. The cove is close enough for the family to pull on the wetsuits and enjoy the surf to start the day. The cottage is very comfortable and ideally located to visit attractions around southern Cornwall. It is well equipped, spacious and very cosy if you are visiting in colder months. The owner is friendly, welcoming and will do everything to make sure you have a comfortable stay. We have enjoyed our stay there so much we have visited twice already and we will keep on returning. The family all look forward to our holiday in this cottage including our dog.
Beautiful location at the top of Polurrian Cove. The lovely beach is just a short walk down the footpath through the field. A wonderful place especially for the dogs.
A 10 minute walk down the hill to Mullion village with its shops, pubs and restaurants.
The cottage itself is very warm and comfortable and the owner, Chris is extremely friendly and helpful.
