Little Gwendreath is a collection of four holiday cottages set within the Lizard national nature reserve in Cornwall. Our local beach, Kennack Sands, is 15 mins walk away and the South West Coast Path passes nearby.

The space

Little Gwendreath Holiday Cottages is comprised of the main farm house built in the late 19th century and the cottages which were originally the farm outbuildings. Each of our cottages has two bedrooms with a double bed in the main bedroom and either a twin or double in the second. Outside there is a private garden for each cottage and a laundry room for your use. Also inside the laundry room is a selection of leaflets about local attractions and a bookshelf should you need anything to read on your holiday.

To the east is a small stream and path that leads down to the beach at Kennack sands. The area surrounding Little Gwendreath is a national nature reserve and a site of special scientific interest complete with rare species of flora and fauna.

Kennack sands is divided into two beaches by Carn Kennack (a small hill). There are two café’s next to the beach and you can also learn to surf at Kennack Sands Surf School. The east beach is dog friendly.

Easy to walk to the beach and access coast path. Lots of info on site and Stephen and Sarah very helpful hosts. If you intend to self cater bring supplies as supermarket some distance. Artisan bread fairly locally. No facilities in cottage for frozen food. Lovely place to stay with friendly robin and blackbird!!

Lovely and well maintained setting in the Lizard Area, remote location which we truely enjoyed. But close enough to get to the main points of interests. To enjoy most you should bring your food (closest supermarkets in Helston, about 10miles) to cook on your own. All necessary stuff for cooking available. Beaches and walks are plentiful around the location so bring good shoes (in case of rain and muddly forest ways). Fantastic stunning views at the sea and the cliffs both at rainy and of course at sunny days - we had more of them than expected! Flowers and plants grow here plentiful which you might know only in smaller size from your garden shops. Last but not least: Sarah and Stephen are very nice and friendly hosts and open for any enquiry and short talk.

The cottage was a perfect size for two adults and a very excited three year old. We spent two days at Kennack Sands beach but there's loads more to explore in the area if you have the time. A shop on the neighbouring caravan site was handy for forgotten provisions like milk and ketchup. Lovely, peaceful and relaxing. Great value - we'd certainly consider another visit.

Very secluded and quiet place with a lovely cottage garden. The delightful scenery of the Lizard peninsula was only minutes away.
