The property

This attractive 18th Century cottage stands in the delightful and secluded hamlet of Rosenithon with excellent sea views overlooking the infamous Manacles Reef where marine life thrives, and ship wrecks litter the seabed.

St Keverne is half a mile away with its picturesque church, village square, shop, Post Office, butcher and two friendly pubs.

The Helford Estuary including Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek creates a unique ambiance for sailors and canoeists.

and the Seal Park at Gweek provides an unforgettable experience.

Boating and diving facilities are available and windsurfing, paddle-boarding and kayaking take place in nearby Coverack.

Flambards Theme Park and Poldark Mine are both within easy driving distance.

There is something for all ages on the Lizard Peninsula, famous for its quaint and pretty villages, including the fishing cove at Cadgwith and other tranquil bays with stunning beaches of white sand and turquoise seas, and secret caves.

The Cornish Coastal Footpath passes close to the cottage and other footpaths nearby cover long stretches of rugged scenery. Penrose Farm Cottage combines spacious accommodation and light bright decor with original features, including an ancient inglenook fireplace (not in operation) and ceiling beams in the separate dining room.

The sitting room on the first floor is comfortable and welcoming with sea view beyond and ideal for relaxation after a fun day spent exploring.

With a downstairs study for correspondence, reading or just peace and quiet, there is space for all the family.

The garden is on two levels with an attractive sheltered patio - perfect for alfresco dining or sitting with a chilled drink.

Above is an elevated lawn which is adjacent to farmland.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.

Note: Steep, narrow stairs to Second Floor. Note: Can accommodate 7 guests on request.
