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

Amazing how the owners have managed to utilise a small space so well. Really cosy little place with everything you need inside. Set in a very quiet, peaceful village the stable was really great for my girlfriend and I to get away from it all. Would happily return!

A great place for the family and very dog friendly. Will be looking to go back for a longer stay.
