The property

St Keverne 0.5 miles. This character barn conversion sits in the beautiful well-kept grounds of Chywoone Farmhouse, in a secluded rural position, half a mile from the pretty village of St Keverne on the Lizard Peninsula.

This cosy St Keverne cottage provides well presented accommodation suitable for a family or small group of walkers with a sitting room with feature stone fireplace and woodburner-effect electric fire for those cooler evenings.

This St Keverne cottage is furnished in traditional rustic style and is a garden lover's paradise as visitors not only have their own lovely garden to relax in, but can also wander around the 2-acre garden shared with the other cottages.

Further afield, Trelissick Garden and Glendurgan are well worth a visit for their sub-tropical plants and carefully landscaped slopes leading down to the water's edge.

The Lizard provides ample walking opportunities along the dramatic coastline and the Helford River, while shoppers will love to visit nearby Falmouth with its bustling revived quayside area.

This St Keverne cottage provides a fabulous retreat off the beaten track but is only half a mile from the attractive Cornish village of St Keverne with traditional pubs and shops surrounding the square.

    • “We loved our time at Saint Keverne. The cottage was well stocked and comfortable. Our kids loved running around in the garden with the dog in tow and we all enjoyed exploring that part of Cornwall. We highly recommend Longhouse!”

    • “We were greeted warmly but left to browse at our leisure. The owner was on hand for any questions at all times. This was a very comfortable cottage with plenty of warm furnishings. We loved the location, allowing us peace and quiet and long walks, but close enough to pop out for the occasional pastie! We will definitely be returning soon.”

    • “An idyllic setting”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Situated in a fairly remote area of the Lizard penininsular,the Longhouse is a well adapted barn with " all mod con " ;set in a lovely garden and next to an extensive orchard . Exiting the garden from the back, there is a picturesque walk through fields and quiet lanes to the quaint village of St Keverne and thence to the National Trust coastal walk. The owner lives on site and proved very friendly and helpful. The only possible drawback we envisaged ,would be for people with limited mobility as the bathroom is on the ground floor next to the steep stairs.”

    • “Lovely little cottage situated down short lane so well away from road noise. Large garden with access to open fields and footpath. Equipped to good standard and had everything we required for our stay. The owner made herself available if required but left us to our own devices. Would recommend.”

    • “Lovely stay in a quiet, cosy location”

    • “We stayed here for 4 nights with our dog. The cottage was very comfortable and in a great location to explore The Lizard whilst also being very quiet. We found St Keverne to be a lovely village with a friendly pub and handy small shops. The routes to other local villages was easy to walk or drive and also the drive to both Falmouth and Helston didn't take long on quiet roads.”

    • “Delightful situation and comfortable home.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This charming cottage is comfortable and very well placed for exploring the Lizard. The owner is helpful and it's good to have access to the garden and parking for the car. Local walks are interesting and it's easy to walk to St Keverne, where the ice-cream factory is welcoming. We were unfortunate to spend some time there in cold (tho' clear) weather, and the heating in the cottage was very effective. Very much to be recommended.”

    • “We had a fantastic break in Longhouse, it is ideal for a family of four or a couple. The location is fantastic, we had everything we could need and all the equipment in the house worked well. No problems at all and would book there again!”

    Mrs Myers, Basingstoke, May 2015

    • “This lovely cottage in a beautiful setting is well placed for walks and interesting attractions further afield in a superb part of Cornwall. It is perfect for our dog having the garden to run in. The cottage is well heated, so important even in summer and very nicely fitted out. The gardens are just wonderful and clearly the whole place is much loved and looked after. We like our hostess very much and hope to return.”

About the location


Helston 12 miles.

On the eastern side of The Lizard Peninsula, the pretty village of St Keverne, lying just 1.25 miles inland, is the focal point for this area, with its village pubs and shops surrounding the village square, and an impressive church spire, at one time used to guide the Cornish fishermen home. From St Keverne, you can easily explore the natural and spectacular beauty of the Lizard Peninsula by car, bicycle or on foot. You will find walled fishing harbours, tiny secret coves, sandy bays and dramatic clifftop walks along the South West Coastal path. Just north is the Helford River, a yachtsman's dream and home to Frenchman's Creek, and picturesque Helford village. A short walk takes you to Roskilly’s Farm, where you can tuck in to ice cream to die for, sold nationally. Further afield, visit Falmouth, with one of the largest natural harbours, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII, and of course you cannot miss out on a trip to The National Maritime Museum.
