Cadgwith is a picturesque fishing village nestling on Cornwall's south coast near the Lizard peninsular (England's most southerly point.)

It is loved by locals and tourists alike for its peace, tranquillity and timelessness.

Park in the car park (pay and display) at the top of the hill and take a leisurely stroll down to the beach via a walkway between the houses, passing along the way a tiny church made of corrugated iron!

The church is open to the public and there is a brief history, a visitors book and postcards for sale.

Don't forget to look about you as you walk down to the beach or you'll miss a lovely view across the fields between the houses and also a stunning view of the sea between the thatched roofs.

Once at the bottom of the hill there is an art shop, another lovely little shop that sells clotted cream ice cream(!) amongst other things and a pub, some fantastic views and two beautiful little beaches, one shingle and one a mixture of shingle and sand, each surrounded by rocks.

Cadgwith, to me, encapsulates the words Cornish Fishing Village.
