    “We loved the house, especially the upstairs game room and my grand daughter loved the dolls house.”

    The beds were all very comfortable and sheets, pillows, towels were very good. It was unfortunate that 6 people had to share 1 downstairs bathroom where the toilet was in the bathroom too, but obviously this is a not going to change, and we got used to it.. The situation was great, as was the terrace and furniture. ...

    The beds were all very comfortable and sheets, pillows, towels were very good. It was unfortunate that 6 people had to share 1 downstairs bathroom where the toilet was in the bathroom too, but obviously this is a not going to change, and we got used to it.. The situation was great, as was the terrace and furniture. However, there were a few issues we would like to point out that could be easily remedied. 1)The fridge had not been cleaned, and there was an unpleasant smell of fish coming from it for a day or so. 2) We had a little dog and he picked up a chicken bone left outside in the recycling!!. The recycling had not been collected- we understand from our nice neighbour that this is a private firm who collects this every 2 weeks, but we had to look at last weeks recycling all week, as it was next to the outside table of the terrace. I think it would be a good idea if the recycling coulf therefore be placed in a large outside cupboard so it doesn't have to be seen and will not harm any pets, and this is kept outside the garden/terrace area. I keep all my recycling in a large green plastic box which I bought from B and Q. 3) There was only one toilet paper in each toilet. Luckily I had brought some. Toilet paper isn't expensive, and there were plent of cupboards in the bathrooms to store extras for the guests. 4) The more minor issues were no washing up liquid and no cloth to wipe the kitchen surfaces. I do feel all these issues can be dealt with by the cleaners, and can only make things more pleasant in this lovely house.

The property

Located on the tip of the fabulous Lizard Peninsula, with lovely sea views and a home-from-home feel inside, is Lower Mellan Barn.

This freshly presented cottage oozes character throughout, with high beamed ceilings, contemporary décor and a beautiful stone exterior.

It offers families and friends the chance to spend some quality time together in the lap of luxury.

Park your car outside and step in to find an impressive hallway leading off into the sitting room.

A beautiful seating arrangement is elevated by the woodburner set in the alcove of the room, proudly awaiting those cool wintry evenings.

There is an adjoining playroom for the kids to make use of as the adults chat away over a bottle of wine, while the well-presented kitchen offers a dining area.

Both rooms enjoy access to the balcony, with delightful views of the sea beyond the leafy garden and opportunity to dine alfresco-style.

There are five bedrooms to choose from on ground floor, each tastefully decorated, two of which with en-suite facilities, while the others share two lavish bathrooms.

Up on the second level, the kids will love a competitive game of table football or air hockey in the games room, keeping you fully entertained even when the skies are looking gloomy.

As well as the balcony, you also have a split level garden outside, with terraces offering a choice of spots for sunbathing.

You are positioned just a short stroll from the crescent shaped beach at Coverack cove, with sweeping sands brushing the shores, ideal for swimming, kayaking and windsurfing.

There is also a Post Office, pub and restaurants to enjoy.

Explore the beautiful South West Coast Path with some of the best walking in the world, discover some fascinating wildlife and admire the dramatic scenery.

The market town of Helston is also close by, with its Flora Day Festival and Flambards Theme Park for the kids and adults of the group to enjoy.

A splendid hideaway to be enjoyed the year-round!

About the location


St Keverne 2 miles; Helston 12 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.

Coverack is a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, a few miles from Lizard Point in Cornwall, the most southerly point on mainland Britain. Coverack is a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the main tourist routes and offers a beach in the sheltered bay, which is ideal for swimming, windsurfing and kayaking, as well as shops, a Post Office, pub and restaurants. The Lizard Peninsula is a large area of spectacular coves and beaches and is noted for its rare geology and plants. From Lizard Point there are wonderful sea views from the windswept cliffs, which provide fabulous walking opportunities along this stretch of the South West Coast Path. Inland is the market town of Helston, known for its Flora Day Festival, and in Gweek is The Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Flambards theme park is just 20 minutes' drive away and just over ten miles away is the Culdrose Airfield, where once a year the public are welcome to come and meet the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Navy’s flying force. Coverack is ideally located for exploring The Lizard Peninsula, as well as the lovely seaside towns of St Ives and Falmouth and many other beaches and pretty villages.
