Located a five minute walk from the pretty village of St Keverne and less than 10 minutes' drive from the sandy bay at Coverack, this traditional stone cottage built in 1900 has enjoyed life as a corn chandler, a cobblers and a venue for the local band practice! Today the instruments are silent and The Old Stone Workshop is a quiet and comfortable home. Open plan living is the order of the day and with the additional conservatory that overlooks the enclosed patio there is space for everyone including your four-legged friend. Suitable for a family or friends, there's a double and a twin room on the first floor, both with sloping ceilings, and a bunk-room downstairs, which is more suited to the little ones.
For those wanting to know this beautiful and unspoilt area of Cornwall better, this delightful little cottage offers guests a great base from which to explore. Within a short five minute drive you can be at the pebbly beaches of Porthallow or Porthoustock, or if it is sand you seek, then the bay and harbour at Coverack is hard to beat – spend time on the beach or in the blue waters and grab lunch from one of the eateries or village shop; this is one of those places you may keep coming back to.
