A hidden coastal gem
Thatched and whitewashed cottages. A stream babbling down a tranquil valley to the sea. Lobster pots stacked on the harbour.
Escape the bustle of 21st century life and slip into a slower pace in Cadgwith, where old-fashioned simplicity combines with spectacular scenery to shape one of the prettiest fishing villages in the world.
In medieval times, Cadgwith began life as a collection of fishing cellars in a sheltered cove in this hidden coastal valley. Today you can still watch the fishermen depart daily from the Big Beach, take a dip from the Small Beach, or simply enjoy an ice cream or cream tea and soak in the peace and quiet of this truly special spot.
Mild winters make this a unique off-season destination too. Enjoy walks along the South West Coast path, gather around a roaring fire in the local pub or join the Christmas festivities by braving the Christmas Day swim or watch the traditional mummers play in the inn on Boxing Day.
