  • "A wonderful character cottage in a fabulous location in walking distance to the beach and amenities in Mullion."

    The cottage exceeded our expectations, so comfortable and clean and the gardens were fabulous with apples, pears, grapes, tomatoes, lettuce and spring onions there for us to pick as we needed.

  • "Clahar Cottage is a stunning cottage in a great location."

    The interior has been done is such a tasteful way to maintain the history of the building but also offer modern facilities. The garden is a great haven with plenty of seating dotted around to hide in! We enjoyed many walks both from the cottage or within a short drive and our dogs have just loved it! My only very very very small niggles are the lack of a hoover/good brush and some cleaning products as when you are in and out from walks with dogs the boot room got really mucky and I would like to have left it cleaner. A word of warning if you are tall like my husband - walk around with a stoop as he bashed his head on the back door more than once and the low beam in the kitchen near the kettle. You think he’d have learnt the first time but it seemed to knock all his sense out of him!!!!! The steps to the first floor are also narrow in depth and thus steeper which some may struggle with. However these are just things you have to accept in an old listed building and become conscious of during your stay. I hope to return to Clahar again. It was so nice to be able to be in a rural quiet location but also within walking distance to food shops and pubs which meant we hardly had to drive. I highly recommend you try Clahar for yourself, you won’t regret it!

  • "Wonderful break in a beautiful cottage with extreme comfort throughout and exciting quirkiness ."

    A stunning garden situated directly on a cut through lane, however found it extremely quiet and peaceful . We explored the area and although we have stayed in Mullion previously we discovered new walks a particularly fantastic walk that leads all the way down to Poldhu Bay and amazing views all the way. The cottage has everything you could possibly require for a holiday and an added bonus was the perfectly situated boot room which was perfect for cleaning off our German Shepherd after a day out. We enjoyed the spectacular grounds with its gorgeous garden furniture well planted shrubs and trees there is also a well stocked veggie patch (unusual ) that apparently you can help yourself to in the summer months. We adored this place everything was perfect . Without a doubt a 10 out of 10 cannot rate it high enough.

  • "Clahar Cottage is gorgeous, both inside and out."

    From the moment we stepped through the door we felt at home and it had everything we could possibly need, plus and more besides. The house was spotlessly clean, and a vase of roses, milk, biscuits, bread and butter were waiting for us along with some logs and kindling to get the log burner started. The cottage is in a fabulous location, we walked to most places (pubs, beaches, village shop, restaurants etc). I would highly recommend it, and we will rebook to stay again. Tip for anyone who uses the smart TV's in the house: delete your Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts when you leave! Some of the TV's had 3 separate accounts save to it, meaning we could have bought movies etc using someone else's account. Obviously we didn't do this, but some people may not be as honest as us. We were amazed that previous tenants had left themselves open to this happening to them. We took our Fire TV stick with us and accessed our Prime/Netflix/iPlayer accounts etc via that, which is by far the safer option. One other small thing to note: The dishwasher is very loud. I'm not sure if that's normal, maybe it is just a very noisy machine, but I have never had one that is as loud as that so might be worth the housekeeper checking it is working ok, just to be safe.

  • "We really appreciated the little touches on arrival, the lit, warm and cosy cottage, the welcome pack and treats for the dogs."

    These were much appreciated after a long journey. Clahar cottage is homely and beautiful, with amazing features. We loved the garden and the range! It is well thought out, with all the spaces so well utilised and it has everything you need for self-catering. The location, close to Mullion is great for walking and visiting the fantastic coves and beautiful locations that the Lizard has to offer. We joined in the quiz at the local pub and swam and used the facilities at the Polurrian hotel so you have lots of options to keep you busy. A fantastic stay for all the family, we didn’t want to leave.

  • "When we arrived the cottage was cold downstairs and the Esse range was cold too."

    Luckily we didn’t want to use oven immediately because it took a while to get up to temperature. There was only one teaspoon that we could find so boiled eggs for breakfast was a challenge! I’m a housekeeper for Landmark Trust and have to say there were a lot of long-standing cobwebs around the cottage! Also mould around kitchen window which to my mind should be wiped clean at every changeover. However, it’s a fabulous cottage and gorgeous garden and once heating kicked in and woodburner lit, very cosy. Don’t think there is space for more than 2 cars parking

    Thank you Anne for your recent feedback - we appreciate it. We are sorry to hear that the cottage was cold on your arrival and can only apologise. Towards the end of December, we had a new central heating system and ESSE range installed. Whilst there is a Slumber setting on the ESSE - which we had assumed would be adequate to heat the kitchen - we now realise that the ovens must be turned on as well. I have passed on revised instructions to the housekeepers and they will also ensure that they increase the temperature on the central heating thermostat as soon as they arrive so that the cottage is ambient on guest arrival. The mould you mention has clearly formed due to the issue with inadequate heating and has never been a problem before. Your comments regarding cobwebs have been noted also. We do hope this was not too detrimental to your holiday. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was lovely with loads of character and warm and cozy for New Year and my 40th birthday."

    It was comfy and well equipped too. You can see the garden will be lovely in a warmer season and the kids loved the lambs in the field next door. I have been coming to the Lizard every year since I was a baby with our family and it was brilliant to walk and see what it is like in the winter for the first time - just as beautiful and wild as every other season we come! Just to let you know that the hot water turns off at about 8am which puzzled us on the first day when trying to shower. In the guest info it says it is constant as it's a combi boiler. The hot water has just been put on a funny timer and you have to press the thermostat, go into the menu and manually boost it. This was fine when we figured it out, but may confuse other guests as well at first! Thanks for the holiday :-)

    Thank you Paddy for your recent feedback. It is always useful to hear when guests have had issues with aspects of the facilities and we can only apologise. Our new central heating system was fitted towards the end of December and it appears that the hot water setting was incorrect. We will adjust the timings so future guest do not have this problem and really appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your winter experience - the Lizard is such a beautiful place in all seasons and you've been very lucky to enjoy it every year! Property Owner

  • "Clahar Cottage has been a great base for us to explore the beautiful (If sometimes wet and windy!"

    ) Cornwall. Within easy walking distance to the village and beaches. The cottage was easy to find, had adequate parking (3 cars!) and provided everything that we could need! We found the bedrooms to be large and comfortable, as was the lounge and the kitchen/dining area - managing to cater for the needs of 6 adults and 2 dogs. We did have to contact the ‘property manager’ regarding the poorly Rayburn and subsequent lack of hot water and heating but were immediately provided with heaters and extra logs after a quick visit from an engineer who also sorted hot water! The instructions for the use of the microwave were easy to follow enabling us to cook easily....... even a roast for 6!!! We found communication to be quick and efficient which was very reassuring and would definitely recommend this cottage. If the weather cooperates you are in for a treat!

  • "The only reason for picking the cottage was to visit my brother who lives across the road."

    We found the cottage well equipped and comfortable. The only negatives was the Rayburn oven never got up to temperature and spoiled a few meals and also the size of the bathroom sinks were far too small.

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are very sorry that the fault with the Rayburn affected your stay. Unfortunately, rectifying the problem immediately proved impossible as the work required took 4 hours to complete and would need to be switched off the previous night. As the Rayburn also provides central heating, this was clearly not feasible. As there is an additional oven provided, albeit a small one, we had hoped this would be acceptable in the interim and also provided vouchers for the local eatery. In light of this issue however, we are now installing a double wall oven with grill so such an inconvenience cannot occur again. We also note your comment on the size of the basins and will assess this also - notwithstanding acknowledgement of the age of the cottage and the restrictions this imposes. With the aforementioned modifications, we do hope to welcome you as guests in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with very nice, typical cottage gardens and a vegetable patch."

    Inside the cottage has a modern feel without losing the old cottage charm. We had an issue when we first arrived with one of the bathrooms which was quickly resolved after a phone call to our cottage manager. There are lots of places to visit within a short distance and lots of beautiful beaches, some of which are unfortunately not dog friendly. We walked the coastal path from The Lizard to Mullion stopping at Kynance Cove for lunch, the scenery here is stunning and well worth a visit even if you don't want to walk all the way. We also enjoyed visits to Caverack, Cadgwith, Helford, Porthleven and Mousehole, all are well worth visiting. We would recommend The Old Inn in Mullion for evening meals and if you feel like driving out the Hazelphron is a nice change with a very good and delicious menu, if you wish to take your dog and sit in the bar area booking is recommended. Overall we had a superb holiday.

The property

This Grade II listed cottage, complete with a traditional thatched roof, rests on the edge of the delightful village of Mullion, the largest on The Lizard.

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Clahar Cottage is an endearing base for a family looking to explore a part of Cornwall immersed with picturesque fishing ports, long stretches of sandy beaches and some of the country's finest scenery.

Upon entering the whitewashed cottage, you are welcomed into the contemporary interior with delightful farmhouse touches.

Prepare delicious home-cooked meals within the kitchen to enjoy together around the dining table, where a striking ESSE cooker takes centre stage.

After dinner, step into the sitting room where you can curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea in hand to catch up on TV, whilst the woodburning stove fills the room with warmth during those chilly winter evenings.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to retire to one of the three stylish king-size bedrooms, one having a cosy en-suite where you can look forward to enjoying a warming soak in the roll top bath.

There is the option to convert one of the bedrooms into a twin if required. During the warmer months, you can look forward to spending time within the garden area, where you can soak up the sun with a refreshing beverage whilst enjoying the tranquil surroundings.

Stroll around the cottage vegetable garden and help yourself to whatever seasonal fare is ready to harvest. If you can tear yourself away from this delightful spot, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of eateries and pubs, and a number of shops for picking up any holiday treats and necessities.

To keep you busy whilst staying here, you and your companions will be delighted to explore The Lizard Heritage Coast, perhaps enjoying the views from the South West Coast Path.

Close to the Cottage, you can walk to the local beaches, where you can either spend an afternoon at the pretty harbour cove of Mullion, the beautiful and more secluded Polurrian Bay, or the National Trust's Poldhu Cove, where Marconi sent his first Transatlantic radio message in 1901.You can enjoy surfing here and refreshment at the beach cafe, open 363 days per year.

At the Polurrian Bay Hotel, perched above the beach, you can enjoy stunning views across the Atlantic.

For a small daily fee, take advantage of their leisure facilities including indoor and outdoor pools, spa and tennis courts.

A short drive away is Kynance Cove - also National Trust - famous for its turquoise seas and for where Poldark was filmed.

A little further north takes you to the bustling and picturesque harbour resort of Porthleven, tipped as Cornwall's next food hotspot.

If golf is your thing, Mullion Golf Club offers fine scenery and views down to the links holes running towards the beach and Gunwalloe Church.

For those feeling more active, head to Coverack which is popular due to its superb windsurfing conditions.

For something more leisurely, spend an afternoon at the National Trust's Lizard Point where you can take in the views from the most Southern point of England, or to the north east lies the Helford River and the beautiful day sailing waters around its estuary.

Clahar Cottage is certainly a heart-warming getaway to this wonderful corner of Cornwall.
