Weave down Cornwall's leafy lanes to reach The Lizard Peninsula and prepare to fall in love with one of the most ancient and iconic homes in Cadgwith Cove. Proudly perched above the azure waters of this picture-perfect natural harbour bobbing with colourful fishing boats, The Fisherman's Knot is a luxury self-catering fishermen's cottage with a chic vintage seaside style.
This luxury fishermen's cottage will delight stylish families looking for a traditional Cornish holiday cottage with the wow factor. The peacockish interiors are fun and decadent, yet perfectly practical for families wanting a jolly seaside jaunt. Mirroring the wild coastal panoramas across Cadgwith Cove, ultra-cosy furnishings in shades of inky blue and sunshine yellow have been thoughtfully placed against the rustic natural backdrop to give a nod to the nautical.
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Both bedrooms sit on the first floor to ensure mornings start from the very best vantage point with views over dreamy Cadgwith Cove. The master has a tropical touch with a botanical feature wall set behind the sinkable king-size bed, while next door the twin bedroom will capture children's imagination, continuing the sixties-meets-seaside theme. The family bathroom is also on this floor including WC, bath and overhead shower.
Once a smugglers haven, the history-laden Lizard Peninsula will inspire the most discerning of travellers. Hugged by the ocean on three sides and by the meandering Helford River on the forth, Britain’s most southerly point offers a varied landscape to satisfy both daredevil surf-types and dreamers of halcyon Blyton scenes. Fill your sandcastle bucket with a bottle of bubbly on crushed ice before skedaddling across the path to catch the sunset from the patio, where old-outside seating and far-reaching sea views create an idyllic spot for al fresco dining.
The sitting room is adorned with bold furniture, vintage fishing nets and crocheted doily rug to provide a quirky haven for relaxation after a day spent ambling the pretty fishing villages and coast paths. Snuggle into the deep velvet sofa with a favourite film and let the children toast marshmallows over the open fire for an after dinner treat. Listening to the lapping of the waves is sure to have sleepy heads fall into a sublime slumber.
There is allocated parking for one car 20 yards away from the property. The open plan kitchen comprises an electric cooker, hob, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and combined washer dryer. This property can be booked in conjunction with The Sea Rose next door, perfect for lovebirds within the group.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: This is a real stand out home. From the framed pressed seaweeds to the knitted swimsuit and lobster pots, the eclectic assembly of vintage accessories rouse visions of good old-fashioned holidays by the sea.
Property Owner James says
We love the cottage for its escapism! It enjoys an elevated position looking out over the sea, the cove and Cadgwith village, allowing you to watch the fishing boats at work. At night there´s nothing better than hearing the sea crash beneath the starry skies from the comfort of this cosy cottage.

FOOD AND DRINK
The Moroccan patterned tiles and handmade kitchen make the open plan dining area an inspirational space to get culinary juices flowing. Whether it be barbecued lobster or melt-in-the-mouth cod with mushy peas, don’t miss out on the fisherman’s catch of the day!
If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).
Pull up a pew and tuck in to a home-cooked supper at the local Cadgwith Inn as you listen to the locals sing sea shanties into the wee hours. Cornwall is fast becoming a honey pot for celebrity chefs and this faraway corner of the county is no different! Head to Porthleven to find the new addition to Rick Stein’s empire and enjoy excellent seafood in this beautiful harbour town. Another good option in Porthleven is the Kota Kai, with its relaxed family-friendly atmosphere and fresh menu.
