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

Cornwall 2019

Very pleased overall but were slightly disappointed to find building work underway on another property in complex. We werenA?t advised of this beforehand which would have been nice. Hopefully will be completed soon. Also it was quite noisy at night due to helicopters and fighter jets as airfield nearby which we hadnA?t realised was there. I was ok but not my fellow light sleepers. Having said all that, I would be more than happy to return.

From the Owner:
The building work, nearing its conclusion, is at the other end of the courtyard. Any noise during the day is kept to between 9.30 and 4.30 to minmise any inconvenience to guests. It will be finished in a few weeks and is mostly internal now. It is really unusal for any rescue helicopters to fly at night unless emergency offshore- 2 a month perhaps. The ocasionally emergency helicopter does come over during the day rescuing people in trouble, and the jets fly over rarely to practise and protect the UK from intruders over southern approaches.

Great cottage, lovely views.

Had a fantastic week in Scovarn House. Six of us plus Henry our boxer. Great hot tub, private with amazing views. We used the cottage as a base to explore south Cornwall. Not a lot in Cury itself, but we knew that before we came. Still constructing a couple of cottages on the site, but it wasn't an issue for us at all. High quality appliances throughout and everything we needed was there for a relaxing holiday. This is the best rental cottage we've stayed in.

Scovarn House

Beautifully renovated barn conversion, well looked after grounds, layer to lawn. Upside down house, great views down the valley to the sea in the distance. Two beaches close by Mullion Cove and Poldhu Cove, great for the kids. Very quiet peaceful setting set on the Lizard. Four great sized bedrooms, kitchen with everything you need, top notch white goods and oven. Not forgetting the HOT TUB, put to great use by all the family. House keeper very helpful and friendly, also the owner around most of the time, also very friendly and approachable. Would have no hesitation in recommending Scovarn House to anyone looking for a peaceful , comfortable holiday accomodation
