  • "The house itself is a practical home for a holiday rental."

    It is well presented and was very clean and tidy upon arrival. The location is quiet and peaceful, with plenty of parking. The garden is fully enclosed so suitable for our dogs to hava a scamper about, and it has a nice big balcony from the house that overlooks it. The well equipped utility room with washer, dryer, airing horse, iron etc is really useful. The house just lacks style and a few Personal touches and is fairly bland. There is an absense of a coffee machine & blender in the kitchen plus basics such as oil, salt & pepper grinders etc that you would expect in a property at this price point. The games room is a waste of space really, the table football was broken so not useable. It could be a really greet teenage den with just a little more imagination and effort so it feels like an opportunity missed. Overall a comfortable and easy stay in a clean and practical property in a really nice, friendly village.

  • "Absolutely beautiful house."

    So homely and beautiful location. Everything you could need and more for a stay. Not afraid to use anything and treat it as your own which showed how comfortable we were. All rooms very spacious and comfortable- power showers in all the bathrooms. Would highly recommend

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such lovely feedback. We’re glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic house and location, loved Coverack."

    Brilliant for dogs as well. Everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. Only niggle was the Wi-Fi, as was very slow but guess that is the area, however that is a minor thing as everything else was perfect. Thank you.

    You are most welcome. Thank you for your feedback. We will take your comments on board. Property Owner

The property

Lower Mellan Barn is a spacious house offering luxury accommodation in a wonderful location overlooking the sea in the beautiful unspoiled fishing village of Coverack on the tip of the stunning Lizard peninsula.

Only a short walk from the large crescent shaped beach, this homely house really does have it all.

After parking directly outside you enter the impressive hallway on the first floor, where you’ll find a plush sitting room with the children’s playroom adjoining and the kitchen/diner with both rooms having access to the balcony, offering ample space for alfresco dining looking directly out to sea over the beautiful gardens.

The five tastefully furnished bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, are all on the ground floor whilst there are two additional bathrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor.

On the second floor and likely to be a real hit with children and dad's is the games room with table football, pool and air hockey, for keeping everyone entertained if the weather is inclement.

Outside the secluded and private split-level gardens and terraces offer a choice of spots for sunbathing with loungers provided.

With Coverack village with a choice of restaurants and an excellent pub on the harbour a short walk away and the splendid beach the same everything is on hand here for a family holiday to remember to be enjoyed all year round being also suitable for couples who will appreciate the large variety of water sports available on the beach.

Enjoy a family break at Lower Mellan Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


St Keverne 2.3 miles; Helston 11.6 miles; Falmouth 18.5 miles.

Coverack is a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, a few miles from Lizard Point in Cornwall, the most southerly point on mainland Britain. Coverack is a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the main tourist routes and offers a beach in the sheltered bay, which is ideal for swimming, windsurfing, and kayaking, as well as shops, pub, and restaurants. Further amenities lie in St Keverne, which has a post office, shops and 2 traditional pubs. The Lizard Peninsula has many spectacular coves and beaches and is noted for its rare geology and plants. From Lizard Point there are wonderful sea views from the windswept cliffs, which provide fabulous walking opportunities along this stretch of the South West Coast Path. Inland is the market town of Helston, known for its Flora Day Festival, and in Gweek is The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, whilst approximately ten miles away is the Culdrose Airfield, where once a year the public are welcome to come and meet the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Navy’s flying force. Coverack is ideally located for exploring The Lizard Peninsula, as well as the lovely seaside towns of St Ives and Falmouth and many other beaches and pretty villages.
