About Hemmick Cottage

Over the headlands and in between rocky coves sits this secluded Victorian cottage.

It clings to Hemmick Beach providing unparalleled views of the sea and across to the highest point in South Cornwall, Dodman Point. 

Switch off for a peaceful break as this remote cottage sits alone on this stretch of coastland. Your journey here will see you drive along a very narrow country lane before arriving to the sights and sounds of the sea. Inside feels exceptionally cosy with its low doorways and ceilings and a log burner that warms the living area. 

Head down to the beach and find a secret hideaway behind the rocky outcrops at low tide. Hop onto the South West Coast Path, which runs just outside the cottage, for walks along Dodman Point or further along to the Roseland Peninsula. For the nearest pubs and shops, head to Gorran which is just a mile and a half away.

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.
