Description from owner

Description

This fabulous Arts and Crafts villa sits in an acre of grounds on a front line cliff top, some 300 ft above sea level with breath taking 180 degrees panoramic views of the sea and bay. As one of England’s most southerly houses it benefits from the warmer and sunnier microclimate of the Lizard Peninsula, renowned for its sandy beaches and coves and most recently used for the latest television series of Poldark. The garden gate opens onto the coastal path offering miles of stunning circular walks. Three hundred yards from the gate along the costal path lies the small sandy beach of Housel Bay, which is hardly ever overcrowded and when exposed at low tide, is ideal for guests to enjoy right at their doorstop.


The house is the last one before the sea on a No Through road, in a hamlet of fifteen houses, and although secluded, is not isolated with the Lizard village only half a mile away with a small selection of food shops,

The house is the last one before the sea on a No Through road, in a hamlet of fifteen houses, and although secluded, is not isolated with the Lizard village only half a mile away with a small selection of food shops, cafes and pubs, not forgetting Ann’s famous pasty shop. Next door below the house is an exclusive family run hotel offering superb meals and the owner always looks after Crag guests, even providing breakfast if required!


Well worth the extra journey, the Crag offers home from home comfort all year round, lovingly restored and retaining the original features of the hall mosaic floor and stain glass hall windows. The spectacular views from the principle rooms, front bedrooms and outside patio are some of the most iconic in Cornwall looking across the Bay and the Lighthouse and feature in many calendars. Huge picture windows and patio doors facing south to the sea allow maximum light and optimise the sea views to enjoy a summer evening or watch the Atlantic storms below in the winter curled up by the log fire. The Lizard Lighthouse is half a mile away and ensures the safety of the many boats passing in the channels. There are numerous sandy coves on the Lizard – Kynance, Mullion, Coverack and kennack to name but a few – with the superb sailing waters of the Helford River nearby made famous by Daphne Du Maurier, and further afield Gweek Seal Sanctuary, Flambards adventure park and Porthleven, with the new Rick Stein restaurant. Larger towns of Falmouth, St Ives, and Penzance with St Michael’s Mount are all within easy reach as is the cathedral city of Truro. In spring and summer, there are numerous famous gardens in which to appreciate magnificent camellias, azaleas and rhododendrons. Roskillys famous ice cream is also locally made near Coverack and offers tea rooms and farm trials. In Mullion, there is the Chocolate Factory where you can watch chocolates being made. Crab and lobster are a local delicacy, with fishing and sailing available locally as well as golf and horse riding.
