Siren | Luxury Self-Catering Cottage | Coverack, Cornwall


Helston, Coverack, Cornwall, UK

A bohemian bolthole hideaway in Coverack designed with creative souls in mind, Siren's quintessential thatch cottage exterior belies a quirky and alternative interior scheme. This luxury self-catering cottage is set within subtropical coastal gardens just a stone's throw from Coverack Cove and features mid-century kitsch for an uplifting stay.


Taking inspiration from its coastal setting while juxtaposing trad beach house flavour,  inky blues, coral pinks and glam gold form the basis of the interior scheme at Siren. With traditional Cornish cottage appeal, this luxury coastal hideaway is a romantic retreat for couples looking for an alternative escape. If it's a close-to-the-elements stay you seek - from sea swimming at Kynance Cove to coast path exploration, the Lizard Peninsula retains an untouched allure unusual to much of Cornwall.


Oozing vintage glamour, Siren appeals to the free-spirited bohemian traveller searching for an alternative beachside haven. Vintage furniture finds sit alongside sixties artwork, sea green velvet sofas sit alongside golden palm trees to create a cocktail lounge by-the-ocean essence. Fusing form and function, from the woodburner to the kingsize bed and double-ended bath, all the little luxuries have been carefully considered at Siren to ensure an indulgent stay. Awaken the creative within using the dressing room-cum-studio space; with far-reaching sea views to inspire, create your own masterpiece.


Located on 'Sunny Corner', Siren is just a gentle amble away from the golden sands of Coverack, so if morning jogs, exhilarating coastal walks or sea swimming form part of your holiday 'to do' list, then you couldn't be better located. Siren is a dog-friendly cottage, so for those of you who are looking to do nothing more than sit back and relax, the cottage garden is a safe haven for pets. During summer months you'll likely be found dining al fresco with sundowner in hand, watching as fiery pinks colour the sky.

From the owner

“A coastal cottage full of character with an individualistic nature, there´s no doubt that being so close to the coast is good for the soul; we always leave feeling uplifted and revived!”

From the owner

We fell in love with Coverack during an idyllic summer's day visit -  the sea was millpond calm and we spent the day watching the fishermen bring in their daily catch. We knew that this would be the perfect place for getting away from it all.

Inspired by the amazing setting, and tales of myth and legend that are synonymous with this magical part of Cornwall, the interiors have been designed to create a fun-filled, quirky abode that is sure to put you into holiday mode, whatever the weather.

The interior scheme is individualistic, and for many guests, it's this individualism that draws them to Coverack Village; although it goes without saying that the sea view is the lure for many.

For us, Siren allows us to take a breath, kick back and relax. We always have grand imaginings that the setting might inspire us to write a book or perhaps sketch a scene, then we find we've idled the time away in the peaceful calm surroundings without doing either!
