The property

Perfectly located for touring the Lizard Peninsula and the far south west of Cornwall, this cosy 200-year old traditional semi-detached Cornish cottage is set in the village of St Keverne, a mile inland from the coastal path and 12 miles south of Helston.

You will feel at home immediately on entering this cottage, which is full of character with its beamed ceilings, woodburner and inglenook fireplace.

There are three well-furnished bedrooms, two double and one twin, all on the first floor along with the bathroom.

The ground floor offers a country-style kitchen, and a living area with comfortable sitting and dining areas.

Opposite the cottage is a private patio area, ideal for dining alfresco at the end of a day.

Next to the garden is a garage offering secure storage, ideal for bikes.

St Keverne is the largest village in the Helford area and is mainly clustered around the village square which boasts all you will need for everyday living; a newsagent, general store, good quality butcher, a popular bistro and two good traditional Cornish pubs, both of which serve food.

With a host of tiny coves and coastal villages to explore as well as excellent sandy beaches, the Lizard Peninsula really does have something for everybody and Cobb Cottage is an ideal base for a holiday in this special part of the world.

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.
