Location - The village of St Keverne caters for every day needs and facilities including a shop, two public houses, health centre, church and primary school with comprehensive schooling being located at Mullion or Helston. The area is cradled by many beautiful coves and creeks with areas of outstanding natural beauty. The Helford is a short drive away with its majestic and renowned sailing waters. Coverack, the next village on, is without doubt one of Cornwall's hidden gems, tucked away on the southern part of the Lizard peninsula offering a stunning traditional granite built sheltered harbour and a fine sandy beach which is always popular with locals and tourists alike. Within this very traditional Cornish village one will find restaurants, gallery, general store, hotels and St Peter's church which nestles on the hillside. Echoes of a proud fishing industry remain in Coverack, where a cluster of nets, lobster pots and small fishing boats lie within the protective granite arms of the harbour. There are quaint colour washed thatched cottages along a maze of back streets and lanes. This part of the Cornish coastline is a haven for coastal path walkers who enjoy some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on offer within this unspoilt part of the Lizard peninsula. Much of the surrounding coastline and countryside is in stewardship of the National Trust and is an area of outstanding beauty.
