The property

Ideally located for good old fashioned family holidays or those seeking peace and quiet in an idyllic setting, Priory Cottage is set in the grounds of Tregoning Manor just outside the tranqil village of St Keverne on the stunningly beautiful Lizard Peninsula.

Tregoning Manor is an early 18th century Cornish farmhouse built on the site of an old Cistercian Monastery and nearby Priory Cottage is a charming upside down cottage full of character with beams and deep window sills and a real cosy feel.

You enter the open plan living area through a stable door via eight uneven slate and granite steps adding to the character that exudes throughout.

With beautiful views over the owner's garden and the wooded valley that leads to the sea this is such a comfortable room which is made even more so by the logburner making the cooler winter evenings so cosy after a day's walking.

There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin on the ground floor and these along with the bathroom overlook the private enclosed patio, an ideal place to relax long into the evening thanks to the firepit/bbq.

Across the footpath there is a mowhay, an enclosed lawned area and a small waterfall, millpond and an old clapper bridge leading on down to the woods and then the sea.

With the best known beach on the Lizard Peninsula, Coverack, only three miles away and so many small coves and picturesque creeks to enjoy you will soon see why a stay at Priory Cottage on the Lizard, the most southerly point on the UK mainland offers you a holiday you will always remember and can be enjoyed throughout the year.

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.
