Spacious and well equipment property in a quiet and scenic location
Skyber Lowen is a spacious property which is well equipped and set in a quiet location with easy access to beaches and a short drive to great attractions in Cornwall. My family felt right at home and we never felt we were lacking anything while staying there.
Enjoyable stay in lovely barn conversion
Comfortable, clean and well equipped accommodation. Quiet location, secure environment for dogs. Ideal central location on The Lizard. Highly recommend.
overall a clean well presents cottage
good clean cottage in the area we are very familiar with. However problems with hot shower in the master bedroom. Unable to lock the front door so felt little insecure with leaving valuable inn the cottage
Very comfortable property. Milk, tea etc welcoming. Cold when we stayed so loved the wood burner in the evenings.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved the area, plenty to do. Weather was good. House had everything we needed and more.
Lovely stay on the Lizard
We loved the location of Skyber Lowen. Kennack Sands was just 15 mins walk away and was much quieter and easier to park at than some of the more well known beaches. The area was really peaceful. The house was just what we needed, really well equipped. The garden was perfect for our boys to run around in.
There is a good pub at Cadgwith Cove, plus more pubs in nearby Coverack and at the Lizard. There are large supermarkets in Helston and good shopping further afield in Falmouth and Truro.
Coverack has a traditional working harbour, a general store, Internet Cafe, friendly pub and several eating establishments. There are many other beautiful villages to discover around the Lizard such as St Keverne, Porthallow, Manaccan, Helford and Gweek, all with excellent pubs. There is a brewery at Coverack for beer lovers!
There are a number of good eating establishments dotted around the peninsula. "South" at Manaccan is a good find, plus "New Yard" at Trelowarren, "Kota" and "Amelie's" at Porthleven, not to mention the inevitable Cornish pasties - Leggy's in Ruan Minor or the famous Ann's Pasties at Lizard.
The Lizard is an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and has some spectacular coastal walks. It is England's most southerly point and the highlights include early Spring flowers, the Lizard lighthouse, swimming and surfing from sandy beaches, delightful fishing coves, sailing on the Helford river, heather covered moors in Autumn, open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food! There are loads of places to visit and highlights include Lizard Point, walks along the coastal path, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine. There are so many activities to choose from locally. You can take a boat trip across the beautiful Helford River and explore the gardens at Trebah. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven. There is great diving on the Manacles and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can find great surf at Porthleven or Loe Bar.
