The Sea Rose is a luxury self-catering cottage set in prime position in a quintessential fishing village of whitewashed thatched cottages, where wildflower pathways and trickling streams amble down to the beautiful Cadgwith Cove.

Cagdwith Cove is rich in seafaring history and The Sea Rose takes its nautical-inspired name from tales of bygone times. Once a honeymoon retreat to the fisherman's cottage next door, The Sea Rose has offered couples a luxury self-catering hideaway for over 350 years. The Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall is the most southerly tip of the UK and a sure journey’s end. Recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and of international botanical importance, the balmy climate plays host to lush vegetation and a riot of colour all year round.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

A vintage glass wall takes centre stage in the decadent bathroom, complete with WC, clawfoot bath and separate shower flaunting raspberry pink metro tiles. A profusion of tropical florals and colour greets you in the master bedroom, where a sumptuous king-size bed completes this cosy and romantic boudoir.


Tiptoe out to the patio with a fresh coffee and see the cove come alive at sunrise. The harbour is a tiny hive of activity in summertime. Watch as the fishermen launch their salt-weathered boats from the shingle beach and head out to find what Mother Nature has gifted in their creel and lobster pots whilst they were sleeping. The Lizard offers a beautifully rugged landscape, where wind-blasted cliffs provide shelter to the tiny fishing villages and hidden coves that reside there, helping retain their pristine olde-worlde charm.

For Relaxation

Far, far away from the city and with bijou appeal, The Sea Rose gives couples the chance to get even closer. Charter a boat to explore the mysterious coves with your beloved; getting back to nature and nose-to-nose with the wildlife is a sure way to let the mind succumb to the important things in life. Recline in your choice of either day-bed or claw foot bathtub and listen to the gentle waves with a glass of something chilled - a blissful end to the day.


Due to the cliffside location, the nearest parking area is in the village and guests can pull up 30 meters from the property to drop off luggage. There is also a car park approximately a 10 minute walk away and a permit is provided for this. The kitchen has an electric cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave and washer dryer. 



Style: The Sea Rose was designed with a flamboyant flair to create a romantic hideaway with a vintage boutique appeal. Inside, flashes of hot pink flirt with bold botanical prints to bring about an exotic flavour.

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Cadgwith Cove, Cornwall to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Vitamin Sea The Lizard Peninsula is famed for its breath-taking coastline and unique landscape, so pack a bottle of suncream along with raincoat and walking boots to ensure you can enjoy the area whatever the weather. Thrill seekers will relish the chance to go coasteering or kayaking around the rugged shoreline.

Wild Swimming The secluded beauty of this stunning peninsula makes for sensational al fresco dips. The area is peppered with hidden coves and bays which are yearning to be discovered. Most noteworthy in Cadgwith Cove is the Devil's Frying Pan; a 200 foot drop into a collapsed cave where the sea flows through a narrow arch at high tide – not for the faint hearted and only advisable on a calm day! 

Mining History Follow in the footsteps of the 18th Century Cornish tin miners on an atmospheric tour of Poldark Mine. Visit the Heritage Museum to learn more about the local mining history. The Halliggye Fogou is also worth a visit, being the largest and best-preserved underground tunnels associated with the Cornish Iron Age settlements.

Flower Finding A visit in spring or summertime is sure to inspire naturalists, when the hedgerows become alive with wildflowers including foxgloves, honeysuckle, campion and sea thrift. Those with a keener interest in floriculture might be able to spot some of the rarer breeds that thrive within The Lizard’s mild microclimate. 

Humpty Dumpty Less than a ten minute drive away is the Cornish Camel Centre, an olde-worlde farm with friendly resident camels, offering treks through the beautiful countryside and woodland. A unique and unusual take on a romantic adventure!

Nearest Beach: Cadgwith is less than 400ft and just a two minute walk away.



Watch the fishermen at work from the bird's eye vantage point of the studio style dining area, or opt for the slate patio on summer days. The hand-crafted kitchen, complete with all the mod cons, is an idyllic haven in which to create a catch-of-the-day culinary masterpiece!  

In-House Cuisine

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).  

Eating Out

Opt for one of the many characterful inns for a real taste of Cornwall. A warm welcome awaits at Cadgwith Cove Inn, where you can leave mealtime to the real experts and look forward to the fishermen’s daily specials. The Shipwrights Arms is an artsy thatched pub set on the river in Helford, brimming with charm. Generations of visitors have trouped through the doors of this foodie pub and its small, seasonal menu comes highly recommended. For a special occasion, try the New Yard Restaurant on the Trelowarren Estate.
