    Chy Kembro is the most comfortable and well equipped property we have stayed in. This was our 4th stay and most definitely won't be our last.

The property

The perfect retreat for those seeking tranquillity, Chy Kembro is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday modern life.

An immaculately presented dormer bungalow in the heart of Porthallow village, this property makes the most of its location with a first floor lounge affording views down to the cove – a great place to sit and watch the winter storms by the warmth of the cosy stove.

See how many boats you can spot out to sea from the window-seat telescope.

Also on the first floor is a luxurious super king master bedroom with plenty of storage and a rocking chair with a view.

Downstairs, a large and well-equipped designer kitchen/diner leads through to a second sitting area and a lovely bright conservatory, which offers a fantastic spot for sunshine breakfasts and leads directly out into the garden.

There are a further two bedrooms on the ground floor.

Outside, there are enclosed lawned gardens to the front and rear of the property; the latter colourfully decorated with a seaside-themed mural and various different plant pots, as well as a picnic bench with parasol.

The pebble beach in Porthallow cove is a two-minute walk from Chy Kembro – a popular spot for kayaking and fishing.

Set just back from the beach, the dog-friendly Five Pilchards Inn is a friendly, traditional pub with a home-cooked menu.

The South Helford and Lizard Peninsula is a beautiful region, with an abundance of coastal walks, hidden coves and tiny waterside villages.

A holiday here is a true escape, perfect for ramblers and their four-legged best friends.

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.
