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.

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.

Warm and comfortable with excellent beds. Very good to have parking. Convenient for the beach and pub. Pub first class for food, drink and atmosphere. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage for a holiday in south east Cornwall.
