Overview

About the property

Studio Barn very close to the beach

Just yards from the beach in this tranquil, quintessential Cornish fishing village, an enchanting detached stone studio. Close to beautiful coastal walks leading around the Lizard peninsula and along the shoreline of the Helford River. Full of character with a mezzanine double bed area enjoying glimpses of the sea, kitchenette, living area and a shower/utility room, packing everything one would need into a perfectly formed space. Ideally located with a tranquil part of Cornwall yet close proximity to the Helford River, Helston, Lizard Peninsula. Nearby attractions include Goonhilly, Trelowarren, Roskilly's and local diving at Polkerris.

Great for short or long breaks away from the city. Ideal for those who want quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of work and traffic noise.

From the Cornish meaning 'port at the end of the moor', Porthallow's history has always been inextricably linked with the sea. A former thriving Pilchard port, small fishing boats are still hauled onto the beach to this day. A number of buildings in the village also exhibit tell tale signs of the industry, if a little less obvious to the casual observer - The Association's Institute building is sighted over a former pilchard cellar!

Set in the heart of the small fishing village of Porthallow with the beach is just a few minutes' walk away. The South West Coast Path is just 50 metres from the studio, offering excellent coastal views across Falmouth Bay to St. Anthony's Head, and a beautiful walk to Gillan Creek and the Helford River. Porthallow beach is used by local fishermen, and it is possible to drive onto the beach to launch canoes and dinghies. The local pub, The Five Pilchards, offers a warm welcome to visitors and there is a craft shop with locally made pottery. The village shops in St Keverne, just a couple of miles away, offer comprehensive supplies. The local wildlife is abundant, with buzzards circling over the valley and seals occasionally visiting the bay. The Old Stable is in probably one of the most peaceful spots in Cornwall, and offers the opportunity for a truly relaxing holiday by the sea.

Ode to The Old Stable

From Pralla's Old Stable, I was certainly able

To enjoy a whole week, exploring Mullion to Gweek. Around all Lizard's coast, I can defnitely boast, Many miles of walking and scenic recording.

But knowing each day, a good place to stay,

The Old Stable cosy and, when I felt dozy,

A comfy warm bed, to lay down my head,

This was all I could ask for.....

I'll be back for more!

Lovely and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Small cottage with all facilities. Clean and cosy. 1 minute walk from pebbled beach and pub which serves good food. Cottage ideal for 2 people with dog. Would highly recommend.

The size of the place was as expected, perfect for 2 people and really clean and cosy. A few yards from the beach and friendly pub just 30 second's walk away.

Compact, yet very comfortable and with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

We have a VW camper, but felt it was inappropriate and thoughtless with regards to the locals to sleep on the beach and so The Old Stable was a perfect alternative. The property may be small, but has everything you need. The shower was lovely and the bed comfortable. (The stone floor downstairs, meant you didn't have to worry about mud on the carpet etc.) There is a microwave for cooking but we only made use of the kettle and toaster. (Food in the nearby Five Pilchards pub is fantastic and very reasonably priced.) We kayaked from the beach, and the cliff walks are beautiful.
