The property

Ruggedly picturesque, the unspoilt coastal village of Porthallow once prospered from pilchard fishing and the 'Five Pilchard Inn' nestling beside the shingled cove is a link to the past. A peaceful backwater, fishing, kayaking, diving and walking the coastal footpath are favourite pastimes or time can be idled away enjoying panoramic views across the wide sweep of Falmouth Bay.

Set well back from the cove but still with views of the sea, Chy Kembro is very special. Oozing comfort and style the presentation of the interior is fashionably sleek and contemporary. Boasting an integral designer kitchen/dining room, a beautifully fitted family bathroom, and two tasteful bedrooms on the ground floor, stairs lead up to the master bedroom and a spacious lounge. Here fully opening tilt-and-turn picture windows add an exceptional aspect to the rooms letting light and air flow in and framing pretty views. The lounge is a spacious room in which to relax beside the glow of a multi-fuel stove, brown leather settees form a striking contrast to the neutral theme which flows throughout the interior and many an hour will be spent on the comfortable window seat gazing out. Both double bedrooms boast the comfort of six foot beds which can be divided if necessary. Enclosed lawned gardens to the front and rear give a choice of settings for quiet relaxation or alfresco meals.

The local village pub is open all year round and you will find a couple of pubs and restaurants and small shop in the nearby village of St Keverne 2 miles away.

About the location


Helston 12 miles.

On the eastern side of The Lizard Peninsula, the pretty village of St Keverne, lying just 1.25 miles inland, is the focal point for this area, with its village pubs and shops surrounding the village square, and an impressive church spire, at one time used to guide the Cornish fishermen home. From St Keverne, you can easily explore the natural and spectacular beauty of the Lizard Peninsula by car, bicycle or on foot. You will find walled fishing harbours, tiny secret coves, sandy bays and dramatic clifftop walks along the South West Coastal path. Just north is the Helford River, a yachtsman's dream and home to Frenchman's Creek, and picturesque Helford village. A short walk takes you to Roskilly’s Farm, where you can tuck in to ice cream to die for. Further afield, visit Falmouth, with one of the world's largest natural harbours, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII, and of course you cannot miss out on a trip to The National Maritime Museum.
