About Tideswell @ Coverack Headland

Tideswell at Coverack Headland is your piece of holiday paradise. The fabulous Lizard Peninsula holiday home is in a stunning headland location, a short walk from Coverack and mere steps from the sand of Mears Beach. Picture yourself reclining in the patio garden, teased by a gentle Gulf Stream breeze as you admire views few are fortunate enough to enjoy in their lifetime. The views from the living room, kitchen/diner and master bedroom are no less exceptional, giving you every opportunity to relish the seaside location. Tideswell is exceptionally well suited to couples and families, sleeping five people in two bedrooms.

You can walk from Tideswell to Coverack via the scenic South West Coast Path in around 15 minutes. Fishing is still very much at the heart of this village, where boats arrive in the sheltered harbour with the freshest catch of the day. The village has a local pub, the Paris Hotel (named after the SS Paris that ran-aground on the headland in 1899) and a restaurant in the converted Lifeboat house. Both have a varied menu, including locally caught fish and chips and house specialities. Other places to eat include Harbour Lights restaurant, the Bay Hotel, Archie’s Loft and the Village Stores – which also supplies essential groceries, household items and is a newsagent. The turquoise waters are popular for snorkelling and scuba diving, and you can hire windsurfers and kayaks in summer. Kids love poking around in the rock pools, building sandcastles, and skimming stones. Even at the peak of the summer season, you'll still feel as if you've stumbled onto a carefully kept secret.

There's a huge choice of activities and attractions to enjoy during your stay at Tideswell. Play tennis in the grounds of The Headland, walk along the South West Coast Path, go horse riding, or cycle along mile after stunning mile of country lanes and way-marked cycle routes around the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. The magnificent links of the Mullion golf club are nine miles away, while gardeners can admire the beauty of Trebah and Bonython Estate. Historic Helston, with its excellent shops, regular markets and other activities, is only 20 minutes from Tideswell, with Porthleven and Praa Sands only a few minutes further. Other Lizard Peninsula attractions include Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands, Lizard Point, the Terence Coventry Sculpture Park, Poldark Mine, Flambards Theme Park, and Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station. Truro, Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth, Lands End, and St Michael's Mount are within an hour of the holiday apartment.

A holiday at Tideswell is one you won't forget. The owners accept bookings typically between late March and early November (out of season by arrangement with the owners), and it's as wonderful in summer as in spring and autumn, while the location is as welcoming for guests who want to explore and be active as it is for those who relish the prospect of not moving from their sun lounger.
