Stone cottage situated on a 150-acre cattle farm close to the Lizard Peninsula and the pretty harbour village of Coverack.
This pleasing stone barn conversion, on a 150-acre working farm on Cornwall's beautiful Lizard Peninsular, will have you shrugging off stress from the moment you arrive. In this quiet complex of four cottage properties, you're based a mile from the charming village of Coverack where there's a small harbour and a crescent-shaped, sandy beach. Enjoy a breakfast on the patio, a stroll along nearby lanes and a family meal at the long table, you'll feel right at home in this peaceful cottage.
Lit by a large barn-door-wide window, the dining/living room is bright and comfortable with a muted colour palette for paintwork and floral print fabrics. There are many details to charm, like the window seat and the elegant barley-twist carved banisters. Exposed dark wood beams and lintels, hand-finished plasterwork and carefully exposed stonework complete the rustic feel. Outside, your private patio awaits for a leisurely coffee beside the climbing roses – afterwards, why not stroll around the farm to visit the resident animals?
At Coverack there are shops and a pub, you can windsurf, kayak or paddleboard on the bay – all are for hire from the beach – and mackerel fishing trips can be arranged from the harbour. A visit to Lizard Point 10 miles away to see the breath-taking views and famous lighthouse is a must-do, while inland, the delightful twin villages of Helford and Helford Passage, linked by a ferry across the Helford River, are 7 miles to the north. Falmouth with its historic harbour is 20 miles away.
