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 cottage in 2006

Why Jonathan Melville - Smith chose Helston

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 cottage 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

Just wanted to say thank you – we have had one of our best UK holidays here at Camellia Cottage. The place is truly beautiful, spacious, clean and very well equipped. We have had a fabulous week and will look forward to visiting Cornwall and in particular the Lizard again. The kids and my grandma have all had a brilliant time. We will be sure to recommend you to others.
