3 Bedroom Coastguard Cottage



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Cottage in Porthoustock, St Keverne, Lizard, Cornwall, England - Tranquil Location, 2 Minutes Walk To Beach

Coastguard Cottage near the village of St Keverne combines all the rustic charm of a 19th century character property with simple stylish and contemporary furnishing, and comes equipped with all the modern conveniences (and luxuries) you could need and expect from a topnotch holiday home. The stunning sea and valley views, beautiful surrounding countryside, quiet beaches and quaint villages must also be mentioned. All in all, Coastguard Cottage is a well loved and treasured holiday home and is the perfect Cornish self-catered holiday choice for families, couples or friends who wish to get away from it all, at any time of the year. Enjoy the beaches and sunsets in summer, or cosy up in front of a roaring fire in winter. As an end-of-terrace former Coastguard Cottage, the accommodation comprises three storeys, three double bedrooms, large lounge, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, family bathroom and two en suites. Outside includes parking for 3/4 cars, a large wild garden, elevated decking and BBQ. From the welcoming local St Keverne pubs and organic farms and restaurants, to the fantastic Lizard Peninsula coastal walks, beaches and harbour villages, there is plenty to do and see. Rural but not inconvenient, you have St Keverne 1 mile away (with local pubs, stores, deli, butcher and post office), Helston Tesco 20 minutes drive away, or a large Asda near Falmouth, 40 minutes away. We are pet friendly, and about 2.5 hrs down from Exeter. It is certainly worth the drive!

About the Owner

I live in Feock, Cornwall and own and rent out two delightful three bedroom cottages, in St Keverne on the Lizard Penninsula and in the equally popular north coast village of St Agnes. Having a young family, we ensure that the cottages are practical and easy for families to come to as we understand the pressures of travelling with children! They both have high chairs / travel cots for your use as well as separate rooms for teenagers so that everyone can have a bit of personal space. Lovely gardens with decking also.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting us your beautiful cottage for our family week away, it was really special. Such a lovely place with everything thought of. The kids loved playing in the garden and sleeping in the attic. What an adventure! We will hopefully be back to explore more of the area next year. Thanks again.
