1½ miles from Helston, in the tiny hamlet of Coverack Bridges (golf club restaurant/bar), a sturdy, detached 'upside down' cottage converted from an 1840s barn. Behind, small sitting-out area, part-covered (table/chairs) and, across the lane, steps down to own large lawned garden (table/chairs, barbecue), beautifully green and restful with tropical vegetation and the River Cober tumbling past to the sea at Porthleven. The tree-lined river bank is unfenced, so supervised children can paddle; you may hear leaping trout splash. Two stores (washer-drier, freezer) for your wetsuits/beach gear etc.  From lane, front door to hall and three smart bedrooms with travertine-tiled floors (rugs) – a double, a twin (zip-linkable to 6' double), and a single (hooks for clothes-hanging). Bathroom (suite, shower over bath); additional loo. Upstairs (stairgates), spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, small microwave, larder fridge, electric oven/induction hob) with granite worktops, high apex beams, wood floor (rug), woodburner, TV/DVD/PVR, iPod dock and stable doors to sitting-out area. Shop and pub, 1 mile. A relaxing place, smartly done; lovely beaches and walks in the area.

The Cornwall region

The Lizard peninsula: quite different to Penwith (see End of England): not wild; very varied. Down its west side are sandy coves (Kynance, with towers of serpentine rock, is stunning). In the middle, Goonhilly Downs are flat, little cultivated, with their very own wild flower species and a satellite tracking station. Lizard Point (lighthouse) is the English mainland's southernmost. The south and east coasts are also of coves between cliffs and one bigger, child-friendly beach, Kennack Sands, and the pretty thatch-roofed villages (not many in Cornwall) of Cadgwith and Coverack, and handsome St Keverne (the farm making Roskilly ice cream is nearby and visitable), and off-shore The Manacles, which sank many sailing ships.

Then, approaching the Helford River's mouth, you come to Gillan Harbour and St Anthony-in-Meneage and all that is soft and dreamy, lush, sub-tropical and wonderful about south-west Cornwall; and so it continues up the wide river to Helford village, Frenchman's Creek and, up another creek, Port Navas (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Helston is the base town; Mullion has a golf course with great views; Porthleven is the fishing village (quite big); Gweek has a seal sanctuary; from Culdrose airbase, sailors of all kinds (and occasionally tourists) are rescued.


Helston: small old town, the Lizard's biggest, with shops, indoor swimming pool, boating lake and popular family theme park. Nat. Trust Loe Pool (beautiful lagoon, lovely walks), 1 mile. Gweek (seal sanctuary), 1½ miles. Porthleven (shops, pubs, cafés, boat trips), Church Cove, Gunwalloe (sandy beach, pub) and the Helford River, about 4 miles; Praa Sands, 5. St Ives, 10.
