Kemyel Wartha Farmhouse is a beautiful granite stone house, which dates back approximately 150 years, and sits overlooking the sea on the Penwith Heritage Coast, a stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall. The property sits at the end of a mile long gravel track, in the quiet and picturesque hamlet of Kemyel Wartha, in an elevated position above the rugged cliffs between Lamorna and Mousehole. Uninterrupted and panoramic sea views can be enjoyed from most rooms, over Mounts Bay towards the Lizard Peninsula and the westerly approaches towards Lands End.

The owners of Kemyel Wartha Farmhouse have recently renovated the property to a high standard, emphasising the character of the property with features such as slate and wooden flooring, a large granite inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, granite worktops and a stylish handcrafted staircase. Complementing the character of the farmhouse are modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen.

Kemyel Wartha Farmhouse sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms and a ground floor cloakroom. The house has a lovely enclosed garden and there is off-street parking. Kemyel Wartha is ideal for families or groups of friends seeking a peaceful holiday surrounded by Cornwall's stunning coastal scenery.

•Living room: The bright and spacious living room has lovely views across to the sea, and has a warm, traditional feel, with wooden floorboards and a large granite inglenook fireplace, with a wood burning stove. There is comfy seating for six and a flatscreen TV;

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 47 Miles Nearest Barpub : Lamorna Wink at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Penzance at 5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Various in Mousehole at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : Lamorna Cove at 0.5 Miles


Lamorna (Nansmornow in Cornish) is a fishing village and cove, situated on the Penwith peninsula within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, approximately four miles south of Penzance. The nearby coastal path affords access to some of the most unspoilt and spectacular coastal scenery in the British Isles, making the area popular with artists, walkers and ornithologists alike.

The cove at Lamorna has a small beach and granite harbour. Granite taken from Lamorna Cove has been widely used in construction, most notably in the Thames Embankment, and stone from the cove was also used to construct the nearby church of St Buryan, whose 92 foot granite tower is an imposing local landmark, often used as a line of sight by fishermen coming into port.


Mousehole (pronounced "Mowzel") is one of Cornwall's most picturesque villages, a stunning collection of yellow-lichened houses, built from the local finely grained Lamorna granite, huddled together around the inner edge of the harbour and protected from the force of the sea by two sturdy breakwaters.

The harbour appears in the record books as an important fishing port from as early as 1266 and part of the South Quay originates from 1390, making it possibly the oldest pier in Cornwall. The fishing industry has declined drastically over the last 100 years, but a few fishing boats maintain the long heritage and tradition of a working harbour, whilst the majority of vessels now lying at anchor are pleasure craft.

Described by Dylan Thomas as the loveliest village in the UK, Mousehole doesn't fail to impress with its picturesque harbourside setting, narrow streets and thick set fishermen's cottages. It's said that the village was the inspiration for Thomas's Under Milk Wood and if you listen carefully to the author and poet's most famous work, you'll realise there's more than just a passing resemblance.


The ancient Celtic kingdom of Cornwall is one of the favourite regions in the UK for visitors. Blessed with a spectacular coastline and breathtakingly beautiful beaches, Cornwall is also home to lots of fascinating castles, houses, and gardens to visit, or you can simply explore attractive seaside towns and tuck into high-quality food in cosy pubs and celebrity-chef restaurants.

Cornwall's stunning coastline is its main attraction, whether it's hiking with sea views or getting into the water itself. The crashing Atlantic shores on the north coast offer excellent surfing, with Newquay at the centre of the surfer scene, or, on the gentler south coast, take a walk across the sea causeway to the iconic St Michael's Mount.
