About New Thatch, Ruan Minor

New Thatch Bed and Breakfast is a quintessential “chocolate box” character thatched cottage which has late 18th century origins and has been dramatically extended over the years.  It has a private off road driveway providing ample parking for up to 4 cars with an enclosed garden which is mainly private for the owners, however; there is an area between the cider apple trees for sitting out on a summers evening to enjoy the peace and tranquillity with a glass of wine if you fancy it.

Ruan Minor is a delightful rural village located amongst superb countryside, nestling beside the iconic communities of Lizard, Cadgwith, Kuggar and St Ruan.  Ruan Minor is close to the Lizard Piont; walking the South West coast footpath enjoys some of the most dramatic and magical coastal scenery the UK has to offer and is a year round activity.   Whether you plan to spend time hunting out Cornwall’s magical hidden coves, art and antique browsing, walking, or just relaxing in some of our wonderful pubs and restaurants you will find us a great base to explore from.

The iconic destination of Cadgwith, a quaint working fishing cove, is a ten minute walk from New Thatch and is one of the most picturesque and authentic Cornish fishing villages, epitomising this gorgeous setting with classic colour washed thatched cottages spilling down each side of the valley to the cove below.  Cadgwith is located on the eastern side of the Lizard peninsula and enjoys mesmerising views with fishing boats drawn up on the beach and out across the cove.  The village has an iconic pub where the Cadgwith singers perform genuine Cornish sea shanties most Friday evenings, further enhancing this delightful charismatic venue and there is also a seasonal restaurant and gift shops.  Our guests can while away the time watching the fishing boats coming and going, enjoy a cream tea or a crab sandwich, browsing for gifts and chatting to the friendly locals.

New Thatch offers you a peaceful retreat from the stresses and strains of everyday life and we look forward to welcoming you to our home and making your visit to Cornwall the best it can be.
