Self Catering in and around Coverack

The Coverack area on the east side of the Lizard has every form of self-catering available, from small camping sites to quirky glamping sites, all of which you can find elsewhere on this website. For quaint harbourside cottages this is the best place to look.


Spread along a graceful bay, the pretty village of Coverack, on the east side of the Lizard Peninsula, is still home to a small fishing community as well as being a popular tourist destination.

White-washed Cottages...

A sheltered harbour

Sheltered from the winds that blow in off the Atlantic, Coverack was once a busy fishing port, and a centre for the processing of pilchards on this side of the Lizard.

There was also a fair bit of smuggling going on and it is said some of the cottages near the harbour still have secret hiding places. Perhaps you might find one? Several of the cottages are available to rent out as places to stay and provide a great base for exploring this wonderful part of Cornwall.

  • It's great, if you don't want too many bright lights and nightlife!

    For a traditional seaside holiday with somewhere to swim and enjoy yourself, Coverack ticks all the boxes. You can learn to kayak, snorkel, or go for long walks along the coast. But it's not Newquay or Blackpool! Don't come here looking for amusement arcades, theme parks and nightclubs...

    Saying that, Flambards, Cornwall's biggest theme park is less than 20 minutes drive away...

  • Dogs are welcome on the beach but should be kept on a lead from 1st July until the 31st August between the hours of 9am and 6pm. (2022)
