Ideal for couples looking for a long or short stay, a one bedroom former fisherman’s studio which is pet friendly with garden and courtyard, in the beautiful Cornish fishing village of Cadgwith. The cabin has a living/dining area with a woodburner. A two minute stroll to the beach and pub, cafe and shops.
The studio is tucked away in the heart of Cadgwith Cove, a two minute stroll to the beach and great pub. The studio has been used by generations of fishermen in the cove, most recently by local fisherman and artist Nigel Legge for painting and making withy pots. The studio featured in Monty Halls’ ‘The Fisherman’s Apprentice’. It has been lovingly renovated using reclaimed materials and its charm lies in the evidence of its former uses – withy crab pots, paint on the floorboards and historic nauticalia combine with comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. The cabin is warmed by central heating and a cosy woodburning stove.
There is no wifi so it really is an escape from the hustle and bustle. The studio has a parking space and a garden leading from the bedroom. The front courtyard has a table and chairs and is a lovely space to enjoy a book and a pasty. The coastal walks starting from the village are spectacular, you may find you don’t need to use your car at all.

“Epic views over the village!”
“We stayed here for the 2nd part of our honeymoon and were so pleased with our choice. Clean, comfortable and cosy. The attention to detail in the cottage was great, exactly what you’d hope for. The village is lovely, all the locals are very friendly and helpful. Old Cellars restaurant was amazing, we ate there pretty much every night. The local pub is good for drinks and evening entertainment. There is a local taxi driver who we used a few times to head off to Porthleven and Coverack, def recommend contacting him-details in the guest book. Overall a wonderful stay, the garden at the top has epic views over the village, couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
“A fab way to spend Christmas!”
“A welcome of home baked mince pies and an invitation to join in the fun of the christmas day sea swim. What a fab way to spend christmas in the beautiful Cot. With its snug log burner, summer house with views over the cove, our family celebrated our second happy and relaxing christmas here……………. hope to come back for many more. Thankyou.”

“Cadgwith is truly unique!”
“Had a wonderful 4 days at the Cot for New Year. Really enjoyed the cosy, well equipped cottage, lovely walks along the coastal path from the front door and the hospitality, great food and friendliness of the locals and other visitors at the pub, just 20 yards down the road. Cadgwith is truly unique being a beautiful Cornish village which is still real, with a strong local working community.”
