Porthallow is a little village a few miles from the fishing port of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula. Its claim to fame is that it stands at the midway point on the South West Coast Path - look out for the stone marker by the pebbly beach. The Five Pilchards Inn sits centrally in the village and you can enjoy freshly-caught seafood in a welcoming environment. Porthkerris Beach close by is home to a family-run dive centre offering shore and boat diving experiences or head inland to explore the delightful creeks and villages around the Helford estuary.
Cove View is one of a small group of apartments perched on the side of the valley looking down to the coast and the views from the living area and balcony are superb. The bi-folding doors allow you to make the most of the stunning setting - there are no curtains/blinds so you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside and coast. The well-tended communal gardens offer an additional picnic area with far-reaching views of the coastline. This apartment is ideal for those wanting a coastal location in a scenic spot away from the crowds. This apartment may be booked with Beach View, subject to availability.

With dramatic cliffs shaped by the Atlantic Ocean, The Lizard Peninsula is home to many little fishing ports with huge granite sea walls, restaurants specialising in freshly caught seafood and gorgeous sandy bays with rocks jutting out into the sea. You will find plenty of pretty coves and beaches to explore such as Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands and Polurrian Cove. You can visit the Lizard Lighthouse, Roskilly's Farm where they produce their own Cornish ice cream, the Marconi centre at Poldhu, see the camels at Rosuick Organic Farm enjoy a sea fishing trip to catch your supper and visit many other fascinating places.
You will find white beaches, turquoise seas and unique nature along with Lizard Point, which is Britain's most southerly point with the Lighthouse protecting the local shipping from the treacherous coastline since the 1750s. Anyone visiting should make sure they see the Helford River Valley where you will find numerous tiny hamlets set along the leafy roads. Along the river are many creeks and inlets including Frenchman's Creek, known for the place Daphne Du Maurier came on honeymoon and which inspired her romantic tales of skulduggery and romance.
Thank you for another holiday in your welcoming home from home. It is so comforting and relaxing. I hope to return again soon for more breakfasts on the balcony!Stephen from Swindon - 29th January 2017
