About the property

St Keverne 2 miles.

Resting in the small fishing village of Porthallow near the pretty village of St Keverne, is this detached, stone barn conversion, The Old Stable.

Sleeping just two guests in a mezzanine bedroom, The Old Stable is a quirky, alternative property for those who are looking for something a little different whilst enjoying all that Cornwall has to offer.

With the added advantage of an idyllic, dog friendly, pebble cove beach just a short stroll away.

Upon entering the property, there is a kitchenette, which is great for preparing a picnic for your long day exploring, and a breakfast bar for you to enjoy a spot of breakfast with your loved one.

Cuddle up on the sofa of an evening and enjoy your favourite programs.

Continue through into the utility room with a handy tumble dryer, and then into the wet room which is a great space to freshen up before you head out for the day exploring.

The moveable stairs lead to the mezzanine bedroom (with limited head height) has a double bed and a Velux window to let in the sea breeze.

Just a stone's throw away from The Old Stable, you will find The Five Pilchards Inn which serves both food and drink so you can enjoy an evening out, or take a picnic on the pebbled beach.

You can take a short drive into St Keverne which is a really beautiful village centred around a square, with pubs, shops and an impressive church spire, as well as being a great base to begin exploring the Lizard Peninsula.

Discover hidden coves, colourful boats, whitewashed cottages and plenty of unique and stunning views.

Also in the area is Roskilly’s Farm which is famous for its ice cream and pizza, or travel slightly further afield to Falmouth, where you can marvel at one of the world's largest natural harbours, as well as Henry VIII's 15th century Pendennis Castle and The National Maritime Museum.

The Old Stable is a romantic and picturesque setting for your next adventure to Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.

About the location

ST KEVERNE

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. Further afield, visit Falmouth, with one of the world's largest natural harbours, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII, and of course you cannot miss out on a trip to The National Maritime Museum.
