  • “The Roost is a beautifully presented cottage with everything you could need for your stay.”

    Outside is a patio and large lawned area, great for playing games with views of a stunning wild flower meadow and beyond that the sea. We stayed at the beginning of the summer holidays, but the area was quiet in stark contrast to other areas we visited. Porthallow is a charming small fishing village and a pleasent 30 minute walk down sleepy lanes from the cottage. Alan and Amanda were lovely hosts made us feel welcome with fresh scones and huge bunch of sweet peas from the garden. Thank ...

The property

On Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula and in rural lanes a little more than a mile from the traditional Cornish fishing village of Porthallow and two miles from St Keverne is The Roost, a single storey barn conversion, one of four on the same site.

Enjoying long panoramic views across open countryside to the sea and coastal waters of Falmouth Bay from the smart slate terrace this cottage has been lovingly refurbished by the Owners to create a brilliant romantic retreat in a beautiful part of Cornwall. With all the modern comforts and stylish interior this is a perfect choice for couples seeking a peaceful refuge to unwind and relax.

Inside the stone built barn is a large open plan sitting room with dining area and sleek kitchen all under a lofty beamed ceiling providing a brilliant sense of space.

Curl up on the reclining sofas with a good book in front of the warming woodburner stove.

There is one beautiful bedroom with king size bed, door to terrace and a huge free standing bath plus a smart ensuite shower room.

Outside relax in the shared garden with a good book or indulge in your favourite tipple whilst marvelling at the Cornish sunsets. Positioned just a couple of miles from some of the prettiest fishing villages Cornwall offers, this a perfect base for exploring. Visit nearby Roskilly’s where you can wander through the meadows and ponds, meet the animals and sample the famous ice cream. Follow the South West Coast Path through the picturesque Cornish fishing villages of Porthallow and Porthoustock and enjoy the beautiful coastal views across Falmouth Bay to St. Anthony's Head. Explore the magical creeks of the Helford passage where at St Anthony-in-Meneage you can hire boats, or indulge in a little wild river swimming. Enjoy a pub lunch at Coverack with its little harbour and beautiful beach at low tide, you may even spot a Dolphin or two from here.

About the location

PORTHALLOW

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.
