Property Description

Tucked away amongst the pretty cottages in the heart of Cadgwith you will find Little Sandcastle, only 100 yards from the beach along a pretty footpath and with its own off street parking. Little Sandcastle has been completely refurbished to a very high standard with great attention to detail and would make a perfect pied-a-terre. It has previously been let very successfully both as a holiday cottage and also on a long term AST.

This one bedroom, former fishermen's sleeping hut, is beautifully presented and has gorgeous sea views across the village rooftops. Contemporary folding, sliding doors open out from the reception room onto a beautifully secluded large patio and bar-be-que area which has the additional benefit of a garden shed to house a washing machine, freezer and additional storage.

Internally there is a slate floor throughout, a cosy seating area and a modern fitted kitchen with electric oven and hob. There is a shower room with corner shower cubicle and electric shower, WC and sink. Finally there is a double bedroom with a window which has wonderful sea and village views. Heating is provided by electric storage heaters.

Cadgwith is a quintessential Cornish fishing village, with, weather permitting, fishing boats that still go out every day, landing their catch on the shingle beach.

The village has its origins in medieval times as a collection of fish cellars in a sheltered south-east facing coastal valley. Houses, lofts, capstan houses and cellars constructed of local stone or cob walls and thatched or slate roofs were built along the beach and up the sides of the valley leading to Cadgwith's characteristic appearance.

The Cadgwith Cove Inn remains the social heart of the village with regular Cornish folk music and singing. There is also a café, art gallery, church, shop and fresh fish shop (we highly recommend their lobster rolls!).

The South West Coast Path provides some of the most picturesque footpaths to explore nearby and the Devil's Frying Pan, a collapsed sea cave, is just a few minutes' walk from the village. Cadgwith also provides a wonderful base to explore the coast by paddle board or boat with the beautiful beaches and villages of the Lizard Peninsula easily explored by car.
