great cottage, great location, VERY narrow roads!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage, finished to high standard. Excellent welcome tray with a much appreciated bottle of wine along with tea coffee and biscuits. Highly recommended accommodation, just beware of the extremely narrow roads all around this area.

Home from home comfort and style

  • 5 of 5

This small but very comfortable barn conversion is bright and airy and is exceptionally well appointed with high quality appliances and fittings. The garden is spacious and sunny and the shared courtyard, and surrounding grounds generally, are well maintained. The housekeeper is also very welcoming and helpful. We had no problem with the wifi but the mobile phone signal was poor in this area. The local pub (with good food) is a short distance away down a very steep hill - we chose to drive after a day's walking along the SW Coastal Paths! The hot tub is excellent and has lovely views across the cliff top fields (as long as there are not too many cars in the parking area!). An outdoor light at the foot of the steps would be helpful for getting in and out of the tub at night in the dark. It's the perfect holiday cottage for two people on a walking holiday with their dog.

The Lizard is an area of unspoilt natural beauty within which lies Lizard Point - the most southerly tip of UK mainland. Numerous beaches and attractions make this stunning area very popular for visitors and locals alike.

Roskorwell is located a couple of minutes drive out of the small village of Porthallow whose pub's name, The Five Pilchards, indicates the traditional occupation of its inhabitants. The old pilchard cellars can still be seen near the beach. The beach itself is shingly and is a great place for some sea swimming in fine weather. You can park your car right on the beach when a wild storm is blowing too! Also near here is the old farm of Tregellast Barton where Roskilly'sorganic ice-cream is made from the milk and cream of their Jersey cows. Call in for one of their 24 flavours of ice-cream, or stay longer and check out the farm. An ideal place for families, you can go for pleasant walks, watch the milking, see the animals and enjoy tea and cakes by the farmhouse fireside.

The Lighthouse on the Lizard Peninsula is the most Southerly point in Great Britain, having stood since 1751 warning passing ships of the infamous 'Man O' War rocks'. The Lizard has so much to offer for such a remote location. Poldhu Cove, home of Marconi's first transatlantic radio message in 1901. The National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek moved to its current location in 1975 and is home to grey seals and common seals, as well as Californian and Patagonian sea lions. The sanctuary often rescue other marine life as well when demand requires.

Coverack is a wonderful, picturesque fishing village on the eastern edge of the Lizard Peninsula. It's large crescent shaped beach is a great place for sailing, windsurfing and diving. Divers are particularly drawn to The Manacles, a group of rocks which have claimed numerous ships and left fascinating wrecks to explore. Pleasure boats and fishing boats shelter in the little harbour built out of local green serpentine rock, which is some of the oldest geological strata known to exist. To get to Coverack you cross through Goonhilly Downs, which is composed of heathland and hosts some rare plants such as the Cornish Heath, the county flower. The Downs are also home to the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, one of the worlds largest satellite earth receiving station with over 60 communications dishes. The iconic satellite dishes can be seen from miles around.

The property is just a couple miles from the little village of St Keverne which has shops, a Post Office, churches and pubs. Amazing beaches at Kennack Sands & Kynance Cove are just a short distance away.

Trebah Gardens at Mawnan Smith is a 25 acre sub tropical privately owned gardens set above the Helford River. Nearby Glendurgan Gardens boasting a recently refurbished 177 year old laurel maze, is now owned by the National Trust. For a fun-filled family day out why not visit The Flambards Experience, offering more rides, amusements and exhibitions than anywhere else in Cornwall. On the Helford River sits Frenchman's Creek where Daphne du Maurier spent her honeymoon dreaming of the Cornish villages that set the scene for her novels.
