The Old Stable in Porthallow near St Keverne within Cornwall is a detached stone barn conversion in the little fishing village of Porthallow, near St Keverne. This quaint, quirky home, which sleeps just two people, is ideal for a romantic getaway in Cornwall, right in the heart of The Lizard Heritage Coast.

A warm open-plan living space greets you upon entering the house. Complete with a kitchenette for preparing a beach picnic. A breakfast bar for enjoying a bottle of wine and a game of cards, and a day bed style sofa for relaxing in front of the television as the sun sets. One mezzanine double bedroom with a large roof window to see the stars. There is a tumble dryer in the utility room and a modern wet room adjacent to this, so guests can get ready in style for those nice evenings out.

The gorgeous dog friendly pebbled cove beach and The Five Pilchards Inn, where you can have some meal and a drink with outdoor seating, are both just a short walk from The Old Stable in Cornwall.

One pet is welcome. Sorry, no infants or children and no smoking.

Parking can usually be found by Porthallow beach.

Please be aware that there is a steep sliding ladder to access mezzanine floor and each side of the kitchenette – care must be taken on the steps of the sliding ladder staircase. There is no cooker but a portable two plate hot plate is provided as well as a microwave and toaster. There is limited headspace and in the mezzanine bedroom, please see photographs. There is a 30cm step from the kitchen to the living area



St Keverne is just a short drive away and has great shops, bars and eateries, an imposing church spire and a gorgeous village square, as well as great links to the Lizard Peninsula where you may find bright fishing boats, secret coves, thatched cottages and can embrace the picturesque views of Cornwall.

Also in driving distance, you can try some delicious ice cream at Roskilly’s Farm or head slightly further to the coastal town of Falmouth, which is home to one of the world’s largest natural harbours, the Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII in the 15th century and the interesting National Maritime Museum.

With a lot of thatched homes and a backdrop of woodland, the beach and village are rather lovely. It’s also a little unusual in that there isn’t really a clear line separating the settlement from the beach.

Because it is located on the eastern side of the Lizard Peninsula, away from the strong south-westerly winds, Porthallow‘s beach is somewhat sheltered. There isn’t much sand here, and the beach is mostly made up of pebbles. This helps to keep the water clearer, which is good news for the scuba divers who frequently depart from here in boats on their way to the Manacles Reef. This granite reef is one of the country’s top diving spots.
