Nestled on a working farm, this barn conversion perfect for a holiday in Cornwall. Situated by Helston on the Lizard Peninsula, it is also a central location for many local beaches and walks.

Rest easy in this charming converted barn that is blissfully tucked away on a working farm on the Lizard Peninsula. Only 6 miles from the ocean in Coverack Cove, you can look forward to spending your holiday barefoot on the beach and wading through the azure waters of Cadgwith and Kynance Cove.

No alarm clock, just the soundtrack of sweet countryside sounds to wake you up in the morning gently. This thoughtfully designed property is cosy and homely, featuring an electric fire, TV, DVD and French doors that lead out onto an idyllic patio area. There is both a washing machine and tumble dryer, ideal for washing and drying everyone's well-worn swimsuits and beachwear. Whoever is lucky enough to sleep in the master bedroom will find themselves sleeping peacefully in a sumptuous king-size bed - heaven.

The Lizard Peninsula features some of Cornwall's most beautiful and dramatic natural wonders, from Mullion Cove to Frenchman's Creek. Amble along the coast path and admire the dramatic Atlantic swells crashing onto the coves and bays below. Travel 6 miles north of this property to explore the sweet market town of Helston, and pop into the local shops for a taste of traditional Kernow. Travel the peninsula without an end destination and stumble across its wooded coves, hidden rivers and quaint villages, and experience the magic of the UK mainland's most southerly point.

We had a wonderful stay, we are local but needed somewhere to stay whilst our kitchen was renovated. Having small children, no access to food or a washing machine would not be easy.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
