Cow-y-jack stands on the north west edge of the village of Coverack, a picturesque harbour village located on the south-eastern coast of the Lizard Peninsula. With a rich maritime and fishing industry, this idyllic cove is now a popular holiday destination and bustles over the summer months with a range of restaurants and shops together with the Coverack Wind Surfing Centre which has a variety of water sports on offer.
The peninsula is the most southerly point of England with wide expanses designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and owned by private estates or The National Trust. Other nearby beaches include those at Kennack Sands and Poldhu whilst the beautiful wooded creeks of the Helford River are also readily accessible.
There is direct access onto the South West Coast Path and from here breath-taking views can be enjoyed no matter what direction one takes. Within a short drive is the larger village of St Keverne which, again, provides a range of day to day facilities whilst more extensive amenities are available within the historic market town of Helston which is some 12 miles distant.THE PROPERTY
