St Keverne is a charming inland village on the Lizard Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty in Cornwall. It is the largest village in the Helford area and has a large statue commemorating the Cornish blacksmith, Michael An Gof who led the Cornish rebellion in 1497. St Keverne church was voted the best church in Britain and it has a landmark octagonal spire to warn mariners about the treacherous Manacles Reef.

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

Beautiful house in stunning location

5 of 5
The accommodation is spacious with all the facilities you could need. Views of the sea and coast surround the house which has a lovely modern interior. Located central to Coverack village and private off road parking its perfect if you want to stay out of the car as often as possible, walk around the fabulous village and walk to the various coves and beaches along the coast path. We had a fantastic week with the two children and have still got the holiday blues now back in London a week later!

Relaxing, friendly and we'll appointed holiday home close to everything we wanted.

5 of 5
As a family we couldn't have asked for a better holiday home. We wanted to be close to a beach for the children and the dog, and close to a pub for the adults. Porthallow provides both of these things brilliantly. The bay is beautiful, clean, safe and with lots to explore. We all swam every evening. The Five Pilchards is a friendly pub, full of locals but very welcoming with excellent food and beers. Willow Cottage is a short stroll away from both, and we felt safe for the children and dog to come and go as they pleased. The cottage itself is lovely. Nice sized rooms, spotlessly clean and a good mix of modern and traditional features. Martha made us feel instantly at home, providing advice and suggestions, but never interfering. We could have spent a week just in Porthallow, but in the area there were so many activities for all the family that we quickly realised that a week was not long enough. A lovely holiday for all the family and the dog. We will definitely be back, but for longer next time.
