Charming little cottage May 26, 2012
Covean Cottage is located a 10 minutes walk from the quay on the island of St Agnes, just beyond Turks Head Pub.

I had seen a leaflet from Covean Cottage Guest House and it looked very charming. A picture of a sweet potato salad looked very inviting. Well, the salad wasn´t on the menu anymore, so I ordered the Hummus Platter instead, homemade hummus with sweet chilly sauce served with pittas, carrot and sultana salad, butter beans and chive salad, and a mixed leaf salad. The salad was garnished with Nasturtium (Tropaeolum), which Olly was picking in the garden as I arrived. The hummus platter was very good and the portion was big. If you don´t fancy veggie food, sandwiches on homemade buns, a variety of homemade cakes and locally made ice cream were served as well. The ice cream came in 9 different flavors. The most interesting flavors being Rose Geranium and Ginger. Oh, and cream tea was also on the menu.

The Covean Cottage is in an old building with old wooden furniture, which goes well with the house. The indoor dining area was small, but charming. The outdoor area was lovely with wooden tables and benches in a small garden full of exotic flowers and plants, and with a great view of the sand bar and Gugh Island.

The service was wonderful as well. The place is owned by a young couple, Olly and Eliza, who really seem to care about their guests. They have also redecorated the rooms and restored the garden and made it into the charming cottage it is today.

I would love to eat there again.

Opening hours are from 8 am until 4:30 pm (Breakfast 8 am - 11 am, Lunch noon - 3 pm and Homemade cakes & cream tea 8 am - 4:30 pm)
