  • "Great place to stay for families or couples alike."

    Modern, well looked after, clean and in a great location. Owners are always on hand to help and were very accommodating throughout our stay. Would recommend without hesitation.

  • "Rum House is set in a beautiful location with views across rolling countryside down to the sea."

    The property is very well furbished and there is a nice outdoor area and plenty of off-road parking space. If you are a keen walker there are some very good routes to be found nearby and I would recommend taking the cliff path from Porthallow village to Nare Point. The Three Tuns pub about two miles away offers some very good food. The wildlife highlight of my stay was watching a barn owl hunting over a nearby meadow at first light.

    Appreciated the small touches such as flowers and cream tea when we arrived. Have already recommended the property. Great cottage. Many thanks.

  • "A fabulous barn conversion, comfortable with everything you need & beautifully presented."

    Homemade warm scones, cream & jam on arrival. A pint of milk in the fridge, with tea & coffee provided. Fresh flowers to greet you as you walk in. All the tasteful little touches made the place feel homely which we very much appreciated. The setting is peaceful, with lovely sea & countryside views. There is no light pollution so on a clear night the starlit sky is spectacular. The garden is not dog proof, due to low walls & gaps but we were delighted to have permission to use the meadow. Many places we visited, dogs had to be kept on a lead. So having use the meadow was brilliant for days where the dogs couldn't run off lead.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rum House."

    The property is stunning & everything has been completed to an extremely high standard. The homemade scones & milk were very welcome on arrival & the owners were on-hand & very welcoming. We did walk to the nearest beach & up to Fat Apples cafe (parked at the beach). Thank you for a wonderful week!

The property

St Keverne 2.1 miles.

Tucked away on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, The Rum House offers a unique holiday experience, perfect for families, friends or couples looking to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

Step inside and immediately be taken aback by this sympathetically converted, beautiful property which boasts vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and a stylish use of colour that give the property its charm.

The open-plan living space offers everything you need for a self-catering stay, from a modern well-equipped kitchen for cooking up your favourite meals to a dining area and sitting area with a contemporary, flame-effect electric fire and bifold doors to take in the stunning sea views.

Curl up on the bespoke furniture and bask in the views, or step outside to the rear garden for alfresco dining on the patio, or to simply relax and unwind with a barbecue dinner.

The two en-suite bedrooms provide a space to retreat; a king-size with its own bathroom and a zip/link super-king (can be twin on request) with a shower room, for more flexibility.

Venture to the nearby town of St Keverne for a variety of independent shops, galleries, boutiques and tea rooms or to take part in the annual church fete.

For those looking to enjoy a day by the sea visit the beautiful Kynance Cove, Cadgwith or Coverack: the Lizard Heritage Coast is a must-see. With its dramatic cliff-top walks and plenty of secret coves, the Lizard is one of the best places in the country to take in breathtaking views and spot wildlife.

The popular towns of Falmouth and Porthleven are also within reach, offering plentiful harbourside restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Whether you choose to explore the charming towns, take a coastal walk or simply relax and unwind in this idyllic cottage, The Rum House is the perfect place to call home.

Note: Property can be booked with Ref: 1059423, together they can sleep six people.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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

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.
