Rainbow End, one of three perfectly converted barns, is nestled in the hillside, overlooking Porthallow. This cosy cottage, part of old Pengarrock Farm which dates back to the 1200s is all on one level and accessed up a few stone steps and combines traditional features, such as polished granite and whitewashed walls with all the necessary modern-day requirements. There’s a comfortable lounge, a relaxing double bedroom and modern kitchen and bathroom with a large, communal garden with views of the countryside down to Porthallow Cove midway point on the South-West Coastal Path with miles of beautiful cliffside walks..
Porthallow, meaning ‘Port at the end of the Moor’, is a small, tucked-away village on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula. It was once a busy pilchard fishing port– in fact, the old pilchard cellars can still be seen near the pebbly beach. Visit the Five Pilchards Inn, full of nautical memorabilia, just off the beach. A mile offshore is the Manacles Reef, a rocky outcrop, and the cause of countless historical shipwrecks. It’s a popular site for diving, accessed from the neighbouring Porthkerris Cove, where you can hire the gear, or book a boat trip to snorkel with the basking sharks. Nearby St Keverne has a handful of shops, two inns and a cluster of whitewashed cottages, all huddled around the village square, and overlooked by the impressive 15th Century church, St Akervnus. Just a few miles south brings you to the Lizard Village and the most southerly point in the UK. The Lizard Peninsula is the Cornwall of Poldark or Rosamunde Pilcher’s The Shell Seekers. It’s the Cornwall of quiet leafy lanes, patchwork fields, hidden coves, clifftop views, accompanied with the sounds of the gulls and the sea. It’s tranquillity, a perfect place to relax and to recharge.
