Skylight Barn is a fantastic hideaway perched high above the picturesque fishing village of Coverack and overlooking Perprean Bay – the perfect backdrop for this unique property. This amazing location has a rather unusual approach as you need to walk up the coast path from the village with a trolley to transport your luggage, but it is worth the trip? Absolutely!
So if you don't mind the walk (uphill) and you are seeking a stylish and contemporary retreat with breathtaking views and a private terraced garden, come to stay and recharge your batteries. Enjoy spectacular clifftop walks and explore secret coves and beaches, or just relax in the peace and quiet whilst indulging yourself in some delicious, locally-made ice cream!
The pretty seaside village of Coverack has a lot to offer visitors of all ages, from building sandcastles on the family-friendly sandy beach or learning to windsurf in the bay, walking the coast paths to the Lizard or just up to the nearby Terence Coventry sculpture park, which is well worth a visit.
And at the end of each day why not pick up some local produce from Coverack village store and enjoy a home-cooked meal with that wonderful view; or if you don't fancy cooking, why not pop down to the village where you have the choice of The Paris Hotel (quiz night on a Wednesday), Chloe's Bistro, The Bay Hotel and the Lifeboat Restaurant, a different venue for most nights of the week!
