About Hemmick Cottage

Over the Cornish headlands and in between rocky coves sits this remote stone-built Victorian cottage.

The incredible setting of this cottage will ensure you get sand between your toes, perched as it is on the edge of Hemmick Beach with unparalleled views of the sea and beyond, looking across to Dodman Point, the highest point in South Cornwall.

The cottage is situated just a stone’s throw from a sandy beach perfect for children, with plenty of rock pools at low tide. To get to Hemmick you’ll drive down a steep and narrow lane with breath-taking views of the coast, with this small and simple cottage nestling round a bend.  Once you’re through the door, there’s a everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay, with a well equipped kitchen and the multi-fuel stove for cosy evenings in. Outside there’s a table and chairs in the garden for alfresco dining, with the sea lapping the shore just beyond.
Even though this small cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms (with beach views) today, back in 1881 it housed Simon Liddicoat, the local blacksmith, along with his wife Mary and their six children.

Walkers will adore being  right on the South West Coast Path as soon as you open the door, and walking in one direction takes you up to Dodman Point, along to Vault beach and on to the pretty harbour village of Gorran Haven with its pubs and shops. Head the other way and you’ll find a network of footpaths to explore on the Roseland.
This remote scenic location is particularly popular in the summer months with locals and visitors. The lanes and beach can become busy.

Walk up Dodman point and take a break from the hustle and bustle. It’s a great space for bird watching and getting back to nature. Under your feet are centuries of archaeological features on this dramatic headland.
Or visit nearby Heligan Gardens or drop down into the bustling harbour town of Mevagissey. For more days out, then travel inland to the National Trust properties of Trerice, an Elizabethan Manor and Lanhydrock with its garden, parkland, house and cycle trail. When you stay with us, the funds you’re your holiday helps us to carry on looking after special places like this.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
