Places to holiday in St Keverne

St Keverne tends to attract visitors who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the normal tourist destinations. It is a place where the scenery inspires people to take photographs, paint, write and to just relax. The best way to experience St Keverne is from the home comforts of a self-catering cottage.

This type of accommodation is really popular because it allows much more freedom than a hotel if you want to explore the little villages of Porthallow, Porthoustock or St Martin, Mullion or to visit Cadgwith, Gunwalloe, Porthleven, Coverack and Kennack Sands and for the whole of Cornwall.

St Keverne has a wonderful community spirit. It is an enterprising village with an attractive square at its heart surrounded by the church, shops, two pubs and holiday cottages. There is plenty of entertainment in the summer months from the Male Voice Choir, St Keverne Band, gala evenings, flower festivals, carnival, coffee mornings, ox roasts, history and painting exhibitions.

Things to do in St Keverne

A holiday cottage is perfect for exploring the coastal paths, which are popular with walkers, cyclists, horse riders, animal and birdwatchers alike. There is a lovely four-mile walk from St Keverne to Porthoustock via Porthallow past the daffodil fields of Trenoweth. Sea fishing is offered on boats at Cadgwith and Coverack and there is coarse fishing at Stithians and Argal reservoirs. The Helford River is particularly well known for the delightful sailing it offers.

Mullion and Praa Sands have excellent golf courses and the Newton Equestrian and Leisure Centre offers accompanied countryside and beach horse riding. The National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek is a busy rescue centre, and also has resident Seals, as well as Goats, Ponies, Sheep and Otters.

Rosuick Organic Farm offers some great walking on the farm and up on the Nature Reserve of Goonhilly Downs. It also offers the unexpected, Cornish Camels and you can choose to sit on a camel for a photo shoot, have a fifteen minute ride on the farm or go on a camel trek on the downs. In stark contrast but also not to be missed is Goonhilly's Satellite Earth Station. Other things not to miss when planning where to go from your holiday cottage include Trereife at Newlyn, Tregothnan Botanic Garden at Truro, St Mawes Castle, Lamorran House Gardens, The Flambards Experience, Royal Cornwall Museum and Trebah Garden

A fab barn and great host Simon. A perfect stay, 10/10. We will definitely be going back

The cottage was excellent, had everything I needed, very cosy, warm and comfortable. Great to watch the birds in the garden: wren, robin, great tits, goldfinch, and a chilled out pheasant wandering around...the locals were all welcoming and friendly, and enjoyed driving the narrow lanes! Looking forward to coming back. My only very very minor quibble is the bath taps didn't really work...but I'm sure that can be fixed easily (I'm guessing people staying in the summer wouldn't need that facility, but I was here in November haha!).

The cottage was every bit as cosy and spacious as we had hoped for. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything that we required. Our hosts, Pete and Jo were lovely. Very friendly and on hand with advice, if needed, about the local area. Pete was great with my grandson, sorting out an egg hunt for eggs retrieved from the resident turkeys, chickens and ducks. The eggs were good too! The village was lovely and quiet - the rocky cove was literally around the corner from the cottage. My grandson and the dogs loved exploring amongst the rock pools. There were also some lovely coastal walks around the village The local pub, The Five Pilchards, was also very close by. The food was brilliant and the staff were great. You need to book, even at the end of October, as the pub is extremely popular. A few minutes up the road is the Fat Apple café. Serves lovely food, ideal for lunch although apparently they also do a mean breakfast! You don't have to go too far if you want a sandy beach - there are plenty of nearby coves to visit. Coverack has a lovely beach and is a working harbour. The seal sanctuary is also close by - definitely worth a visit. Although my favourite place was Porthallow beach itself! What we liked most of all were the local people - must be a great place to live as everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend a holiday in this pretty little village and we were very lucky to have picked such a great cottage to holiday in - thanks Pete and Jo. Hopefully Strutt, the turkey, will still be there when we come back!.
