Little Gwendreath Holiday Cottages is a collection of four, two-bedroom cottages based on Cornwall's beautiful Lizard Peninsula. Our location is remote enough to be peaceful, but close enough to Cornwall's larger attractions to be a great base for trips out. Largely unspoilt, people come to the Lizard to see its dramatic scenery, sandy beaches and rugged natural landscapes. The Guardian recently described it as 'almost impossibly pretty'.
To the east of our site is a small stream and path that leads down to the beach at Kennack Sands which is divided into two beaches by Carn Kennack (a small hill). There are two cafés next to the beach and you can also learn to surf at Kennack Sands Surf School. The east beach is dog friendly all year round.
“This was our first trip with our dog and we were looking for a dog friendly cottage. We couldn't have stayed at a better place. The cottage is small, but a perfect size for what we needed and contains all the essentials and more. Beautifully kept and spotlessly clean, plus a fenced garden which was brilliant for our dog. To top it off, some delicious home made cookies were left for us. Only a 10 minute walk down to the beach (which is particularly lovely as the sun rises). A perfect base to explore the lizard. Absolutely recommend.”Amanda L, Trip-advisor
The area surrounding Little Gwendreath is a national nature reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, complete with rare wildlife species and spectacular scenery. On clear nights the Milky Way can be seen. There are many rewarding walks near us, not least the South West Coast Path which passes by Kennack Sands.
Our cottages are quiet, cosy and offer authentic Cornish holidays with nature at the heart. We are very conscious that everything we do has an impact and we want to tread as lightly as we can. We are passionate about reducing our footprint and inspiring our guests to minimise the impact of their stay. We try to show that ‘going green’ does not mean compromise and guests can rest assured that just by staying at Little Gwendreath, they are helping protect the environment they are here to enjoy.
