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.

As a family of 5 with 3 young children (8,7 & 3) you had everything you needed to enjoy a family holiday. The cottage, facilities, playroom, surrounding area was brilliant.

Great thought has gone into the refurbishment of the house, so that the rooms have a light airy feeling. The kitchen and utility rooms are very well equipped. The double beds are all a good sized, and very comfortable. Although we were there in the summer, features like underfloor heating in the bathrooms will make a great difference in cooler periods. The position in the village is very convenient for access to the beach and the parking space is invaluable. Finally the views from all the major rooms are superb. We had one of the most delightful holidays.

The cottage has been tastefully furnished and had everything I needed. Graham and Bette were friendly and hospitable; there was a warm welcome when I arrived and delicious homemade cake. Throughout my stay they were on hand if I needed advice about places to visit. I particularly enjoyed their gifts of home-grown vegetables and herbs. I was made to feel at home. I enjoyed having breakfast and supper in the garden in the sunshine. The area is magical! Quite undiscovered, untamed and wild. I loved the walks along the coast to secret coves; the village of Coverack has a friendly community spirit. There's so much to discover and without the crowds that you find in the rest of Cornwall during the summer. I would recommend this holiday cottage for people who love the coast and nature.
