    “Great property.”

    A couple of issues but not a problem to us.

    A couple of issues but not a problem to us. Bathroom shower drains need a clean out as the trays filled up and can overflow. The BBQ needs an upgrade as we found it unusable. Signage to the barn was a bit of a problem going into the actual gate the barn is not visible. All minor issues. Just trying to help it didn’t detract from great accommodation. We fully recommend this to anyone there were only six of us but no problem go ten if needed. Cheers Roger Tonks.

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, pub and restaurants. St Keverne (4 miles from Poldowrian) has a Post Office, shops and 2 pubs. The Lizard Peninsula has many 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.
