  • "This was a lovely rural accommodation which was clean and comfortable with a beautiful garden."

    The hosts were helpful but not at all intrusive. If you want a quiet, peaceful holiday, this would be perfect. It was our first visit to the Lizard peninsular and we will definitely go back. It is an unspoilt corner of Cornwall and visiting in May helps you see it at its best. The countryside was festooned with wild flowers and in 5 days not a drop of rain. Thankyou to our hosts and this fabulous corner of Cornwall.

The property

St Keverne 2 miles.

The Bower is a beautifully-presented barn conversion located near the lovely village of St Keverne near Helston, Cornwall.

Situated close to the coast, this property sleeps two and is perfect for couples seeking a beach getaway with a furry friend.

Step into a nicely-decorated, open-plan living space where you can settle on the sofa, put your feet up in front of the electric fire to watch a movie on the TV.

Then move to the kitchen and whip up your favourite meals to enjoy around the dining table or outside in the vast lawn space when the weather allows.

As the day winds down, take a relaxing steaming shower in the en-suite and slip under the freshly-washed linens of a king-sized bed to catch your rest.

Venture out to the local fishing village of Porthallow and spend the day sunbathing on the sand at Porthallow Beach, hike to Pol Gwarra for stunning coastal views and stop for breakfast or lunch at Fat Apple Cafe.

Drive out to the town of Helston where thrill-seekers can head to Flambards Theme Park for a fun day out, spend the afternoon at Coronation Park having a picnic by the lake, feeding ducks and rent a swan boat to sail across the lake, then stroll around the Museum of Cornish Life for a taste of local history.

Nature-lovers, make your way to the stunning village of Mawnan Smith and check out Trebah Garden, a wondrous valley garden with seasonal blooms, subtropical trees and a play area, the National Trust - Glendurgan Garden, a beautiful verdant garden with exotic plants and a hedge maze, then head to the hidden away Trebah Beach and marvel at the crystal blue waters and fine sand.

The Bower is an ideal base for a memorable escape.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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. 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.
