Skyber Cottage lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers the perfect accommodation to discover the Lizard peninsula.
Situated in a peaceful hamlet near Ruan Minor, the cottage is ideal for small families or couples looking for a relaxing break.
The Lizard is a place apart with the combination of a mild maritime climate and complex and unique geology producing a fascinating flora.
The Lizard Peninsula is also renowned as the birthplace of communication, where Marconi undertook some of his pioneering radio experiments. These experiments are celebrated at the Marconi Centre at Poldhu and the Lizard Wireless Station.
National Trust properties on the Lizard Peninsula range from the dramatic coastal scenery around Lizard Point, to the beautiful ancient woodland around the Helford River. Two miles to the north of Lizard Village lies the secluded Kynance Cove, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and a few miles further along this stretch of coast the beautiful picture-postcard harbour at Mullion Cove.
The area has a wealth of wildlife and some of the UK’s most stunning scenic coastal paths.
Discover the working fishing village of Cadgwith, with its thatched cottages, inn and gig house clustered around the cove.
Nearby is the sheltered and peaceful Helford River, which attracts yachtsmen from all over the world and is well known for its sub-tropical gardens and secluded villages, such as Helford with its delightful riverside inn and its enchanted wooded creekside walks, made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s romantic novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. Boats can be hired by those who wish to take to the water.
The area is ideal for walking, cycling, sailing, bird and wildlife watching, water sports, fishing or simply relaxing back at the cottage in the delightful grounds with a good book and drink.
