Palm Cottage

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
St Keverne, Helston, Cornwall, England
Palm Cottage has always been a second home for the owners, so although the house is ready for your arrival and immaculately clean it has a warmth to it, from the carefully chosen interiors to the garage packed with beach toys for the children.

There is a tastefully furnished open-plan living room with an ample-sized dining table at one end and a cosy seating area with an open log fire at the other.

The kitchen is clean and modern with every piece of equipment, whether you're enjoying a diet of pasties or lobster during your stay.

The bathroom is downstairs, with a bath and shower over.

Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms; a double and two twins.

What we are told repeatedly about the cottage is that it is a perfect base for exploring the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall's secret treasure. The coastal footpath, beaches and prett...

"Palm Cottage" is a delightful, warm, well appointed friendly cottage in the little village of Newton. Ideally placed for the many coastal path walks of the "Lizard Peninsular" and inland walks nearby. Small harbours, coves and small beaches abound and there are many excellent eating...More

We found Palm Cottage to be homely and had almost everything we needed during our holiday. It was well located for the local dive centre at Porthkerris where we spent 3 days. The pub opposite, although a little pricey, served very good food. The cottage...More

Thank you for your kind review and am pleased that you had an enjoyable week, certainly taking advantage of the mature garden and spacious garage, no doubt to keep all your diving gear. I doubt that the main bedroom could cope with a larger bed...More

Additional amenities & feature info
We're experienced holiday-makers in Cornwall so we know how important it is to be prepared for the weather in throughout the year.. We are aware that one can enjoy an ice-cream on the beach in January or equally be swimming in the sea during a rainstorm in August!

We can't guarantee the weather in Cornwall, but we do promise a happy holiday in our most comfortable home with a welcome tray on your arrival.

From the imposing solid front door to the tiled floor vestibule you enter the beamed, open-plan, carpeted living area with its original cob walls. This room invites relaxation with its leather sofa, cosy chairs,open fireplace, window seats, several table lamps, board games, and flat screen TV.

At the other end of the living room is a generous dining table, with a rocking and Wi...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated in a charming village with a pub over the road, serving local ales and excellent food at a reasonable price.

A popular three miles circular walk is from Kestle Barton, brown signposted, down Frenchman's Creek to Helford and return through the wood.

A foot-ferry from Helford runs across the river to Helford Passage.

GUNWALLOE CHURCH COVE and KYNANCE COVE are the nearest beaches.

HELSTON is a quaint old town famous for its annual Floral Dance and The Blue Anchor, one of the oldest pubs in England.

POTHLEVEN has many shops and restaurants, an attractive Victorian terrace of houses and a working harbour.

The Seal Sanctuary at GWEEK is one of only two in the UK and is certainly worth a visit.
