The Experience

As one of England’s most southerly houses, it benefits from the warmer and sunnier micro climate of the Lizard Peninsula.

Renowned for its sandy beaches and coves and most recently used for the latest television series of Poldark.

The garden gate opens onto the coastal path offering miles of stunning circular walks. Three hundred yards from the gate, along the costal path lies the small sandy beach of Housel Bay, which is hardly ever overcrowded and when exposed at low tide, is ideal for guests to enjoy right at their doorstep.

The Crag offers home from home comfort all year round, lovingly restored and retaining the original features of the hall mosaic floor and stain glass hall windows.

The spectacular views from the principle rooms, front bedrooms and outside patio are some of the most iconic in Cornwall, looking across the Bay and the Lighthouse, and feature in many calendars.

Huge picture windows and patio doors facing south to the sea allow maximum light and optimise the sea views to enjoy a summer evening or watch the Atlantic storms below in the winter ,curled up by the log fire.

The Lizard Lighthouse is half a mile away and ensures the safety of the many boats passing in the channels.

Location

There are numerous sandy coves on the Lizard – Kynance, Mullion, Coverack and Kennack to name but a few – with the superb sailing waters of the Helford River nearby made famous by Daphne Du Maurier, and further afield Gweek Seal Sanctuary, Flambards Adventure Park and Porthleven, with the famous Rick Stein restaurant.

Larger towns of Falmouth, St Ives and Penzance with St Michael’s Mount are all within easy reach, as is the cathedral city of Truro. In spring and summer, there are numerous famous gardens in which to appreciate magnificent camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons.
