is a tiny fishing village forgotten by the 21st Century, located
on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, England.
Fishermen still push their boats down the beach to catch shellfish
and wet fish which are available; weather permitting; every
day. The area offers the most spectacular scenery to be found
anywhere in the world. To the summer visitor, arriving on a
sunny day, Cadgwith seems everything that a Cornish fishing
village should be. A stream winding down the valley and trickling
over the sand and shingle beach, whitewashed cottages, mostly
thatched, scattered on both slopes of the valley and fishing
boats drawn up on the beach. A place for relaxing, enjoying
the peace and quiet, sitting in the sun soaking the atmosphere.
this is only a small part of the real charm of Cadgwith. This
is a real working village that holds on to a way of life almost
completely forgotten elsewhere. Fishing boats still go out every
day, as they have done for hundreds of years, not for pilchards
nowadays but for crab (several tons a week), lobster, mackerel,
shark and mullet. The pub remains the social centre of the village,
our natural venue for celebrations of all kinds as well for daily
chat and gossip. There is folk music every Tuesday night and traditional
Cornish singing on Fridays.
around the cove are reminders of the past - old pilchard cellars,
winches, the old lifeboat house that was used until 1963, memories
of much-loved fishermen who lost their lives at sea. All are carefully
preserved and yet still form part of everyday life.
you are looking for a holiday of the old fashioned simplicity,
surrounded by scenery of breathtaking beauty, then look no further.
Do try and come out of peak season if you possibly can. Our winters
are mild, frost is rare and snow almost unknown. Spring is always
early. Daffodils are picked as a commercial crop in January and
the potato harvest starts in early May. The cliffs, moors and
hedgerows are ablaze with wild flowers from February to June.
There are golden days in October and November as fine as any in
Mid- summer. We hate to see our cove deserted on warm sunny days
in Spring and Autumn.
why not come down, forget the modern world and share life as it
was shared 500 years ago. Relax a while with an ice cream or a
cream tea or enjoy a drink or two on the terrace outside the pub.
There's an art of living here that has largely vanished from almost
anywhere else. But beware, one visit and you may want to return
time and time again. Many people do and become our good friends
in the process. We look forward to hearing from you.
