About Elm

High on the cliffs of Cadgwith Cove, you’ll have sweeping sea-views on your doorstep.

Elm is one of a handful of small cosy holiday cottages perched above the historic fishing port of Cadgwith Cove. You can’t help but be impressed by the sweeping sea views and secluded location of the cottage, kept cosy by a well-stocked woodburning stove in its lounge.. 

From the large enclosed garden, look down on the village below and watch the fishing boats set off for the daily catch., Head into the village and explore a place that time forgot, with its former pilchard cellars, winches and the old lifeboat house. The locals will welcome you with open arms into the village pub where folk and traditional Cornish singing take place twice a week.

Further afield, explore the Lizard Peninsula. The area is rich in history with a landscape to match. Explore the stunning coastal paths that run along it’s ragged edge and discover hidden villages.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
