  • Anne

    “Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage in a great location for exploring the Lizard peninsula.”

    Good walks from the doorstep and lots of coves and cliffs to discover as long as you don't mind the narrow and winding roads of rural Cornwall

The property

This traditional cottage is set in the village of Porthallow just a short stroll from a shingle beach.

Arranged over one level providing a comfortable retreat for couples.

The open plan living space has a well equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting room with wood burner and views of the valley.

Leading off from here are the bedroom and shower room.

Outside leads to an enclosed garden laid to lawn with stone steps and paved surfaces.

Stroll down to the shingle beach to skim stones or launch a canoe or dinghy.

Alternatively walk 60 yards to join the coastal path to admire the views across Falmouth Bay to St Anthony's Head and walk to Gillan Creek and Helford River.

About the location


St Keverne 2m. Porthoustock 1.5m. Coverack 5m

is a small fishing village on the east coast of The Lizard peninsula to the south of the Helford River, in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. Along the coast, to the north, is Gillan Creek and the Helford River, and to the south is the village of Porthoustock, and offshore The Manacles, a great hazard to shipping and a popular diving site for shipwrecks. The South West Coast Path passes through Porthallow which lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, especially renowned for it's geology and plants. One road runs through the village, and there is a post office and public house, the Five Pilchards, named for the pilchard fishery. The beach is privately owned with access open to all.
