The property dates back over 200 years and is tastefully furnished to provide comfortable and cosy holiday accommodation. Porthallow is a peaceful, unspoilt fishing village with easy access to the beautiful coves and beaches of the Lizard Peninsula, the UK’s most southerly point. With easy access to explore South and West Cornwall, Porthallow is popular with those seeking a relaxed atmosphere in a traditional quaint village with superb coastal walks, quiet coves and beaches which are within easy reach of the local pub and village square.

The picturesque Helford river and creeks are perfect for sailing, fishing or relaxing in one of many great local pubs serving delicious food. The South West Coastal Path runs through the village with dramatic coastal walks in both directions and stunning views across Falmouth Bay.

Col Ros Ref: GB2

Commanding a peaceful and idyllic cliff-top position with panoramic sea views, this spacious and well-equipped house stands in its own large gardens. Set at the end of a 1/2-mile unmade lane, it enjoys views over the Atlantic and across Mounts Bay towards Penzance, and footpaths lead from just outside the garden gate down to Polurrian Cove , a quiet and secluded haven with good surfing. Other coves are just a short walk along a dramatic cliff-top – Mullion, with its granite-walled harbour and Poldhu, scene of Marconi’s first transatlantic cable message.
Col Ros is ideally situated for exploring the west of the county, with the Lizard Peninsula, Penzance, Falmouth and Truro all within easy access. The Lizard (5 miles), with its craggy cliff scenery to the west and wooded vales to the east, is a mecca for walkers, surfers and divers. Penzance (21 miles) is an ideal centre for touring Land’s End and boasts the National Lighthouse Centre and Cornwall’s only promenade. More local attractions include the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, famous for its air-sea rescue helicopters, and Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, 4 miles inland. Helston (6 miles) is an ancient market town built on two hills. In early May each year there is the world-famous festival, ‘Flora Day’, with its colourful ‘Furry Dance’, in which long lines of people with hands joined make their way through the flower-lined streets. Helston has Flambards theme park, with a reconstructed Victorian village, ‘Britain In The Blitz’ street with wartime aircraft, rollercoaster rides, award-winning gardens and adventure playgrounds. Mullion has pubs serving food, or a short drive of 6 miles leads to Halzephron Cliff with its inn above Gunwalloe Church Cove – a 500-year-old smugglers’ haunt with lovely views, and recommended by the Good Pub Guide and Egon Ronay Guide. Shop ¾ mile.

A short walk from the NT beauty spot of Mullion Cove and close to adjacent sandy coves, this lovely stone Cornish holiday cottage stands peacefully in a sunny sheltered garden. The garden features a revolving cedar wood summerhouse (an ideal hide for bird-watchers), which is set between a lily pond and stream and there is an octagonal gazebo cum brick barbecue area. A cosy property with full central heating and gas stove. Wrapped up for the night in the summerhouse, sensible older children will be enthralled to watch badgers and foxes spending long hours digging for worms in the grass.
Located on the Lizard Peninsula, Mullion is Cornwall’s biggest village and is situated just a mile from the coast, where Mullion Cove lies with its unusual rock sculptures and small beach. Marking the spot where the first transatlantic radio transmission was made in 1901, the Marconi Monument can be seen at the cliff’s edge. Nearby Kynance Cove (the peninsula’s best known beach) is characterised by impressive cliffs, offshore islands and displays stacks and arches of serpentine rock. With surfers, the beaches at Polurrian and Poldhu prove popular, whilst sandy beaches can be found at Church and Dollar coves. Five miles north of the cottage is the stannary town of Helston, where tin ore was once extracted and sent to the port at Porthleven. Held each May, the well-known Floral Dance is performed here – men in top hats and women in summer dresses taking to the streets to re-enact a somewhat strange dance, which lasts for the greater part of the day. Younger family members will enjoy the theme park also found there, and the network of quiet country lanes connecting the inland villages with those on the coast provide a good way to explore the area, with cycle hire available at Helston. Just over half an hour’s drive away are Truro, Penzance, Falmouth, Redruth and St Ives. Golf, riding and pleasant coastal walks all found locally. Shops 400 yards, pub close by.

Trerhose Ref: GWV

Within 2 miles of three sandy beaches and commanding magnificent coastal and country views from its elevated position , this spacious, very comfortable and well-equipped detached house is tucked away peacefully along a track. Set in its own private 1½ acres of grounds and garden, a haven for wildlife, it is only a 10-minute walk down to the enchanting harbour of Mullion Cove, now in the care of the National Trust. A natural tunnel through the greenstone rock leads at low tide to a little sandy beach. There are glorious cliff walks leading to a further series of sandy beaches, or southwards through part of the Lizard National Nature Reserve, where a wide range of heathland and cliff-top plants may be seen, and sea-birds include kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills and shags. The clear water offshore attracts divers, and surfboards are for hire in several coves.
Mullion (1 mile) is one of the largest villages on the Lizard Peninsula, with shops, banks, several inns and restaurants, and a golf course; at nearby Angrouse several ancient barrows have been opened to disclose prehistoric artefacts, now on display in the Truro Museum. Five miles away is the National Trust’s Penrose Estate, at the centre of which is a freshwater lake more than a mile long, and miles of paths wind through delightful woodland. The market town of Helston (10 miles) has good facilities for visitors, including tennis courts, putting and bowling greens, cinema, swimming-pool and famous Blue Anchor pub, which brews its own beer. Nature lovers will find a great deal of interest in this area. On the eastern side of the peninsula, around the estuary of the Helford River, there are some beautiful gardens to visit. Glendurgan Gardens (NT) has a magnificent collection of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, as well as tree ferns and bananas which flourish in the wonderfully mild climate of this region. At nearby Gweek is the National Seal Sanctuary which cares for rescued seals. Within easy reach is Penzance, with regular trips to the Isles of Scilly, and charming St Ives. Land’s End can be reached in an hour or so. Gliding is available locally. Shops 1 mile.
