About Jonathan Melville - Smith

I live on the Lizard peninsula, not far from Summer Lodge, as I find this area one of the most inspirational in the UK. I am an artist/builder who creates spaces of light and beauty. My aim is to welcome you into a dwelling for your pleasure and relaxation. I enjoy using ideas of times passed and endeavor to achieve an ‘other worldliness’ in my work.

I spend my time in constant contemplation of the next project in mind. Other than that you can find me enjoying music and dance, or Cornish coastal walking.

Jonathan Melville - Smith purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jonathan Melville - Smith chose Lizard Peninsula

I purchased this property in 2006 and it took almost three years of renovation. It was built in 1923 so I have tried to keep the ideas of this era in mind, redolent of the 1920s and an eclectic collection of furniture and furnishings. The location is unique, with sea views from three directions’ offering a different light at all times of the day.

What makes this villa unique

You will find comfort and functionality inside the property within a two minute walk to the Lizard village. Here you will find a variety of shops selling local products, including the Serpentine stone, unique to this very small area of Cornwall. There are several family run pubs and tea rooms as well as Anne’s famous pasties. Take a ten minute walk to the nearest beach but a little further on you will find one of Cornwalls coastal jewels, Kynance Cove. You would be forgiven for thinking you have been transported to paradise with its sandy beaches and serpentine rock formations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic house! By far the best we've ever stayed in. It has everything you could possibly need (and more!) The attention to detail in the design and decoration of the house is second to none. Although there are no pictures of the outside, I can assure you it's as impressive as the inside. We were a party of 7 including 3 children. There was plenty to do in the area and we could easily have stayed longer. The Lizard village is beautiful too with more than enough to spend a day exploring. We will definitely make the trip back.

We have all enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful county of Cornwall.

We were thrilled with the house and the way it is equipped is first class.

We came from Ayrshire, Dumfries and Bath for a family get together. Ann from Bath.

What a beautiful spot! We've had a wonderful, relaxing family break away from the hustle and bustle of the home counties! A beautiful home & great scenery, friendly locals & delicious ice cream. The Golding family.

Amazing place! Better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

The photos almost do the place justice. The actual place is even better. The kitchen with the large kidney shaped dining table was a perfect place for everyone to gather, and was equipped with everything that we could need. The bedrooms were all great sizes. The outside dining area was also great given that we had wonderful weather all week. The house is a perfect short stroll to town, where there are good dinning options, it's also close to the lighthouse and coastal walk. Couldn't have asked for a better place!
