Such a lovely place. So peaceful and inspirational. Really enjoyed spending a week in a studio near the Wink. The cove itself is not as pretty as other places in the area but it is still well worth a visit.

We walked from Mousehole across the fields returning by the coast path and the walk itself was great with beautiful views although a bit muddy and uneven in places. However Lamorna Cove itself isn't the most attractive place in Cornwall and I wouldn't have gone...More

Lamorna Cove, whilst pleasant enough, does not compare favourably to others on this peninsula. Many years ago we stayed for a week in Lamorna in accomodation at the top of the road leading down to the cove & the walk down to it is simply...More
