  • Mr Alsford

    “The cottage has not been refurbished or updated since last year so the bathroom is still rather basic with a shower that is weak to say the least.”


    The double bed in the main bedroom has seen better days, during our stay we both suffered from sleepless nights due to suffering from back pains during the night. This resulted in my wife being in great discomfort by the Thursday and deciding to cut our stay short and leaving for home on the Friday morning. A four foot bed with an old mattress is not good enough in this day and age. Although the kitchen is sufficient it, like the rest of the cottage needs an update along with the two couches in the lounge which have also seen better days and are too low and far too soft. This is a lovely cottage in a super location it just needs some TLC.

The property

This character-filled, converted barn sits on Chywoone Farm in the village of St Keverne on the Lizard Heritage Coast in Cornwall.

Longhouse serves as a heart-warming retreat for a group of outdoor lovers who wish to explore this wondrous area of England.

The ground floor sympathetically retains some of the barn's original features; the wooden beams and exposed stonework make it a charming place to stay.

Spend the evenings unwinding on the inviting red sofas with the electric fire ablaze, the perfect way to end each day.

The kitchen is fully-equipped, whilst the dining room, with its rustic wooden furniture, provides a social spot to enjoy each mealtime together.

Both of the bedrooms at Longhouse rest under the eaves on the first floor, neutrally decorated to ensure a peaceful environment to recharge your batteries before yet another day of outdoor adventure.

There is a choice of simply lovely outdoor spots to make the most of here, with a quiet enclosed lawn and patio as well as two acres of well-kept lawns for you and your four-legged friend to stroll around under the sun.

St Keverne is a pretty village which hosts a number of friendly shops and pubs to make the most of.

From here you can venture along the wondrous Lizard Peninsula with glorious beaches, countryside and many quaint villages just waiting to be explored.

For a memorable outdoors holiday, Longhouse is the place for you.

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.
