  • “The property is simply not practical or big enough.”

    There is no storage space and the bedroom is ridiculously small and very uncomfortable. The facilities are pretty much unusable because the stairs are always in the way. It was described as quirky but in reality it was uncomfortable and unusable and resulted in us leaving 2 days early. I would recommend single night stays only and a total re-think of the layout and facilities

The property

St Keverne 2 miles.

The Old Stable is a detached, stone stable converted into a tiny home, located in the small fishing village of Porthallow near St Keverne.

Sleeping just two guests, this cosy, quirky property makes for a romantic retreat to Cornwall, in the heart of The Lizard Heritage Coast.

You are welcomed into the property by a cosy open-plan living space with a kitchenette to prepare a picnic for the beach, a breakfast bar to enjoy a glass of wine and a game of cards, and a day bed style sofa so that you can relax in front of the television as the sun goes down.

Adjoining to this, there is a tumble dryer in the utility and a contemporary wet room, so guests can get ready in style for those lovely evenings out.

Climb the stairs to the double mezzanine sleeping platform (restricted head height).

Just a short walk from The Old Stable, you will find the lovely dog friendly pebbled cove beach and The Five Pilchards Inn which you can enjoy some food and a drink, with outdoor seating available.

St Keverne is just a short drive away and has great shops, bars and eateries, an imposing church spire and a gorgeous village square, as well as great links to the Lizard Peninsula where you may find bright fishing boats, secret coves, thatched cottages and can embrace the picturesque views of Cornwall.

Also in driving distance, you can try some delicious ice cream at Roskilly’s Farm or head slightly further to the coastal town of Falmouth, which is home to one of the world's largest natural harbours, the Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII in the 15th century and the interesting National Maritime Museum.

For a romantic trip to a gorgeous part of Cornwall, choose The Old Stable as your base.

About the location

ST KEVERNE

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.

Note: Steep sliding ladder to access mezzanine floor and each side of the kitchenette - care must be taken on the steps of the sliding ladder staircase. Note: There is no cooker but a portable two plate hot plate is provided as well as a microwave and toaster. Note: There is limited headspace and in the mezzanine bedroom, please see photographs. Note: There is a 30cm step from the kitchen to the living area.
