About this property

Cove View, one of three perfectly converted barns, is nestled in the hillside, overlooking Porthallow. This attractive cottage, all on one level keeps traditional features like exposed beams and stonework, slate floors as well as a wood burner for those chilly evenings  There’s a cosy living room with flatscreen TV, a traditional kitchen, a comfortable bedroom and a modern shower room. Outside there’s a large, communal garden with views of the countryside down to Porthallow Cove.

Porthallow, meaning ‘Port at the end of the Moor’, is a small, tucked-away village on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula. It was once a busy fishing port, famous for its thriving pilchard fleet – in fact, the old pilchard cellars can still be seen near the pebbly beach. Just a mile off shore is the Manacles Reef, a rocky outcrop, and the cause of countless historical shipwrecks. It’s a popular site for diving, accessed from the neighbouring Porthkerris Cove, where you can hire the gear, or book a boat trip to snorkel with the basking sharks. Nearby St Keverne has a handful of shops, two inns and a cluster of whitewashed cottages, all huddled around the village square, and overlooked by the impressive 15th Century church, St Akervnus.
