Property Location


The Lizard has been designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ as it justifiably deserves. It’s teeming with diverse wildlife and beautiful coves, stunning cliff paths, sandy beaches, fishing villages and spectacular scenery. The Nanfan Barn cottages are perfectly set up by the Owners to ensure a relaxing, tranquil holiday in spacious accommodation and superb views. It has a remote feel, but it is only a short drive to Helston and much of south and western Cornwall is within easy reach. There are lots of footpaths both inland and coastal, and the Coastal Path at Poldhu is close by. The beaches of Poldhu – a mile away, and Church/ Dollar Cove, and the beach Church at Gunwallow (it’s a Medieval Church -Poldark and Doc Martin film there) are close. The Lizard is England's most southerly point. The Lizard point is famous for shipwrecks and the area highlights include early Spring flowers –including beautiful yellow daffodils everywhere, the Lizard Lighthouse, swimming and surfing from many sandy beaches, and delightful fishing coves. At the heart of the Lizard village stands a 13th century church, famous for it’s ornate woodwork decorating the end of the each pew and depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament. Outside in the water, two, thick sea walls, built in the late 19th century, protect the harbour from the worst of the wind. Local fisherman still work in the harbour to land fabulous fresh seafood, some of which is then served in the local pubs and restaurants.

There is sailing at Falmouth or on the beautiful Helford river and it also has picturesque village and lovely pub with the ferry across to Trebah Gardens, and Frenchman’s Creek (Daphne du Maurier- ‘Rebecca’). There are heather covered moors unique to the area with autumn also a great time of year to visit and many open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food (several restaurants are Michelin recommended)! There are loads more places to visit on the Lizard and highlights include walks along the coastal path and cliffs, the famous Victorian holiday destination of Kynance Cove with the beautiful rare Serpentine rocks and cafe, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, and the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station and its Segway course. Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine.

Mullion is the largest village situated on the Lizard Peninsula and boasts a number of quality pubs, cafes and restaurants among it's various attractions. Four beaches – the towering cliffs of Mullion Cove- a fishing harbour, Poldhu Cove with café (and Marconi Centre), isolated Polhurrian Cove and amazing Church Cove - are conveniently nearby and easy access to the South West Coastal Path offers visitors the chance to explore the beautiful surrounding cliff scenery. The coastal path goes to the miles of sand at Loe Bar and Pool (Cornwall’s largest lake and wildlife haven) and on to the Penrose parkland.

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 and beach fishing from Loe Bar. There is great diving on the Manacles from Porthkerris 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 and Poldhu. Canoeing and bard surfing are popular on the protected Eastern shores

Relaxing break

Following a week in Newquay we commenced a relaxing week at Manor Arvor . It was a lovely building very well equipped and we noticed how quiet it was brilliant we used the Hot Tub in the evenings star gazing fabulous. The only downside was the only pub in the village had closed and it was a long distance on narrow winding roads to get anywhere. We woukd still go back though if you want to relax no better place.

Pretty Barn conversion in a super spot for exploring the Lizard & beyond!

Much care & thought has obviously gone into the renovation of this barn & the whole courtyard setting. Manor Arvor is in a wonderful position, only a short walk (though quite steep on the way down) to the nearest cove at Porthallow. The interior & garden/courtyard space are all very well maintained & the hot tub was a fantastic extra luxury (& ready to use on our arrival). The barn is situated on a quiet road & it would be easy to stay for a whole week and still do different walks every day without having to use a car..... equally it is in a great position for exploring further afield. We can recommend a trip to The Eden Project.... the Zip Wire in particular! We have just one recommendation - the present outdoor seating at Manor Arvor consists of 2 rather "upright" metal chairs...... perhaps these could be replaced at some point with a couple of more contemporary "loungy" type seats. Overall Manor Arvor was a very special place to stay & we would love to visit again very soon.

Beautiful area and well equipped cottage

Lovely stay, the cottage is great and everyone we met was lovely and helpful. Close to lots of great walking and food. The area is less touristy than other parts of Cornwall so it was really nice to meet lots of friendly locals. Thanks for a great stay!

Lovely cottage, good location.

A lovely little cottage for two in a peaceful area close to lots of lovely beaches and seaside towns. The cottage was clean and cosy with adequate parking. The hot tub was lovely although it is a shame that you do not get much of a view and they could do with putting an outside light at that end of the cottage and/or some twinkly fairy lights as it is difficult to see out there in the evening. Good fitted kitchen with quality appliances. The bedroom is small but adequate. Unfortunately the mattress was very uncomfortable as it was very springy so you get a lot of movement when the other person moves around. The rest of the cottage is so well furnished it is a shame that the mattress is not of the same quality. The garden is enclosed but it is not so great if you have a small dog as the fence at one end has very big gaps that a terrier can walk through out to the road. We had to watch our dog at all times when he was out there. The cottage is right next to the coastal path and you can easily walk down to the village to visit the local pub. We very much enjoyed our short break at Manor arvor and would happily go back again.

Well-equipped and comfortable retreat with wood-burner and hot tub - a great escape

I chose Manor Arvor to get away from it all and get some peace and solitude. The location and property are both great and I extended my stay; I'd like to come back again. The property would benefit further from more screening from the road as it can feel like a goldfish bowl when the blinds are not down and when using the hot tub. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped. The wood fire and hot tub are the highlights. I happily recommend this property to others.

Manor Arvor

We had a wonderful week staying at Manor Arvor helped by the unseasonal October weather. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and fully equipped for everything you want. Plenty of walks straight from the door which was great for the dogs. Sadly no shop in Porthallow, but the pub is very welcoming with good food. The garden is not totally secure for small escaping dogs but the road is extremely quiet. An ideal base to explore this very special part of the UK.

Eddy the Labrador puppy's first holiday!!

A splendid property in a spectacular location. Being "dog friendly" Manor Arvor provided us with an ideal stay. Access to the SW Coast Path, a convenient village Pub and, in this instance, very good weather gave us all that we required.

A lovely well maintained property. Perhaps a little. More privacy, and shielding from main bin, for hot tub

Quiet, away from it all, and ideal for couples

Disappointing that the Hot Tub was not immediately available - understandable and desirable that it should be cleaned out between guests but we've never stayed anywhere before where it was not ready and waiting for guests. After two days' hard driving it was the first thing I wanted/needed! Unfortunately it also stopped working altogether halfway through the week so we only managed a handful of dips.. Also, cottage would have been so much better if it had been planned to face onto the garden rather than the courtyard - although we aren't precious about privacy, we did feel it was necessary to keep the blinds shut to prevent being overlooked! And the garden fence was not dog proof! So we were unable to let our dog out into the garden without being on the lead which was a shame. Overall, though, we loved the area, had a fab holiday, have rebooked with Cornwalls Cottages for next year, and can't wait!

From the Owner:
It is unfortunate that when we clean out the Spa for each guest and it takes up to 24 hours to return to operating temperature. We do not know of any method to accelerate this process and believe guests would prefer clean water? The SPA was working when checked during the week so we do not how or why it would lose temperature and regain it o its own accord unless the guests turned the mains electrical supply off and on again which some have done in the past. The building design was the dictated by the existing original barn configuration. The Planners enforce this aspect of the renovation. We are sorry the orientation and fantastic natural light was inconvenient to the guests. We prefer to use post and rail fencing so as to maximise the beautiful views for the guests benefit unfortunately for untrained or roaming dogs this can cause an issue?

great cottage, great location, VERY narrow roads!

Lovely little cottage, finished to high standard. Excellent welcome tray with a much appreciated bottle of wine along with tea coffee and biscuits. Highly recommended accommodation, just beware of the extremely narrow roads all around this area.

Home from home comfort and style

This small but very comfortable barn conversion is bright and airy and is exceptionally well appointed with high quality appliances and fittings. The garden is spacious and sunny and the shared courtyard, and surrounding grounds generally, are well maintained. The housekeeper is also very welcoming and helpful. We had no problem with the wifi but the mobile phone signal was poor in this area. The local pub (with good food) is a short distance away down a very steep hill - we chose to drive after a day's walking along the SW Coastal Paths! The hot tub is excellent and has lovely views across the cliff top fields (as long as there are not too many cars in the parking area!). An outdoor light at the foot of the steps would be helpful for getting in and out of the tub at night in the dark. It's the perfect holiday cottage for two people on a walking holiday with their dog.
