This traditional stone cottage, built in 1900, has enjoyed life as a corn chandler, a cobblers and even a venue for the local band practice, and it is now a lovely holiday cottage.
Set only a five minute walk from the pretty village of St Keverne, and less than ten minutes' drive from the sandy bay at Coverack, the cottage is perfectly positioned for all your holiday needs. Today, the instruments are silent and The Old Stone Workshop is a quiet and comfortable home.
The open plan living-area is a sociable place to relax in and spend time with one another in this secluded part of the world. There is also a sunny conservatory that overlooks the enclosed patio, creating space for everyone, including your four-legged friend.
Suitable for a family or a group of friends, there's a double and a twin room on the first floor, both with sloping ceilings, with a shared family bathroom. There is also a bunk room on the ground floor, which is more suited to little ones, along with a recently refurbished shower room.
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.
