Rene's Cottage is steeped in local history having once been owned by a local fisherman and coxswain on the Cadgwith Lifeboat. This delightful thatched cottage sits just a minutes walk from the picturesque cove with its cosy pub, village shop and fishmonger where you can buy the catch of the day brought in by the local day boats.

Absolutely amazing

Mr D,

Very convenient for exploring the Lizard peninsula. Warm and peaceful in a friendly village. Ideal for an early spring holiday.

Mrs E,

Absolutely brilliant. No faults with the cottage or the location or anything. We will definitely be booking again.

Mrs H,

Second time we have been to Rene’s cottage, it’s small but cosy and just all you need for two people and two dogs. It doesn’t have a garden but even with two dogs it’s not a problem as there is great coastline to walk which is minutes away, and cadgwith it’s self is very lovely. Definitely will go again

Mr T,

A lovely little cottage, very clean and perfectly positioned to enjoy the gorgeous cove, fabulous pub and dramatic coast path. Great to have a very valued parking space too! Thank you!

Mrs B,

It was a really lovely cottage great location

Previous Customer,

Rene’s cottage provides a genuine Cadgwith experience, atmospheric, romantic and comfortable.

Mr S,


With dramatic cliffs shaped by the Atlantic Ocean, the Lizard Peninsula is one of Cornwall’s most impressive landscapes. The rugged coastline is dotted with white sandy beaches and little fishing ports and overflows with such incredible scenery, you’ll never put your camera down! You’ll find plenty of pretty coves and beaches to explore as well as some picturesque little villages. Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands and Polurrian Cove are great beaches famed for their stunning scenery and Cadgwith, Mullion and Coverack all make the perfect holiday base or day out.

Coverack, on the southern edge of the Lizard Peninsula, is a small fishing village retaining much of its original charm and atmosphere. The large, sheltered bay is perfect for swimming and windsurfing. Mullion, the largest village on the Lizard, offers an array of shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants, craft shops and art galleries. Neighbouring Mullion Cove is a pretty, working harbour where you can book fishing excursions to take you out for a few hours or an entire day. Villages don’t come more picture-perfect than Cadgwith. Located on the southern part of the peninsula, the village has a little shingle beach which is home to a colourful array of fishing boats. Typical of the whole Lizard area, the village is full of stone and whitewashed cottages, many with thatched roofs.

The fabulous South West Coast Path winds around the Lizard Peninsula following the whole coastline. The perfect way to take in the full beauty of the area! Turquoise seas, majestic cliffs and the unique nature of the area mean it’s ideal for more than just walking. Enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, from snorkelling, scuba diving and windsurfing to coasteering, horse riding and rock climbing!

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary in nearby Gweek is another great family fun day out. You can also visit the Lizard Lighthouse, Roskilly's Farm where they produce their own Cornish ice cream, the Marconi centre at Poldhu, see the camels at Rosuick Organic Farm, enjoy a sea fishing trip to catch your supper and visit many other fascinating places.
