Little Gwendreath Holiday Cottages
Free Cornish treat when you book direct
Little Gwendreath Holiday Cottages is a collection of four, award winning 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.
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.
Each cottage has a main bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with either twin single beds or these can be joined together to make a super king. Please let us know which set up you would prefer. The living room in each cottage is equipped with a day bed that can convert to a king size sofa bed. Pets are welcome at an extra £30 each per booking. If you will be bringing an electric vehicle please let us know the make, model and battery capacity as charges may apply. We operate a three night minimum stay, excluding summer school holidays when we only offer Saturday to Saturday stays.
Little Gwendreath wins Gold in the Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable category at The Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021/22 and is named runner-up in the Carbon Neutral category at the Cornwall Sustainability Awards.
