Location

Wych Elm is situated to the West of Coverack in the hamlet of Ponsongath. Coverack itself is a stunning traditional coastal fishing village. Nestled in a sheltered cove on the Eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula, there is a crescent shaped beach offering access to crystal clear waters perfect for swimming, kyacking and paddle boarding. The heart of the village is the traditional fishing harbour constructed in 1724 from local serpentine and still home to working fishing boats bringing in the catch on a daily basis. The old Lifeboat House now offers fish and chips that can be enjoyed on the harbour and The Paris Hotel offers a great range of food and drinks, there are also a variety of small cafe's, restaurants and shops as well as a Primary School. Gazing down onto the bay below is the pretty 19th-century church of St Peter which is almost chapel-like in appearance and has a pulpit made of the famous local serpentine stone. The beautiful coastline of The Lizard Peninsula stretches out in both directions from Coverack making it a great starting point for a coastal walk.

Outside

Wych Elm is accessed via an electric gated entrance where there is parking for multiple vehicles on the driveway and access to the two storey triple garage. Behind the garage there is an additional outbuilding/workshop and a bridge leading to the land where there are two stunning lakes, the biggest of which is eighty metres in diameter. There is also a glamping field which is approximately two acres in size and accessed via it's own five bar gate from the road where there are five spacious but cosy luxury yurts, a shepherds hut and lovingly restored and converted horsebox which hold the showers, toilets and washing up area. If glamping isn't your thing then this field would also be a suitable paddock for keeping animals.
