Having recently undergone extensive refurbishment, this country house now offers superb accommodation. In a quiet, fishing village, with spectacular views over bays and headlands, the large grounds include a volleyball court and orchard. Inside are many original features including a wooden staircase.

The self-catering kitchen contains 2 gas ovens, 2 gas hobs, microwave, 3 fridges, freezer, toasters and a range of kitchen equipment, crockery and cutlery for 30 people. Tea towels are provided.

A maximum of 30 people to share rooms of 2×3 (with double bed), 3×4 (one with a double bed), 2×5 (with double bed) and 1×7 (with a double bed) – five of these rooms are en-suite. All bed linen is provided.

There is parking in the grounds for 15 cars or seven minibuses.

Take the B3293 from Helston to the Lizard, and then Coverack/St Keverne. At Zoar garage, about 1 mile before you reach Coverack village, turn right following a signpost to the hostel. This avoids the congested village and steep hills. Follow the narrow lane and after 1 mile, turn left. Coverack and the hostel is one mile down the road, next to the Village School.
There is only access for cars and mini buses under 20 seats.

In addition to the en-suite rooms we have three showers, toilets and washbasins (eight in total throughout the building including the en-suite rooms). Please bring your own towels.

There is a large lawn over-looking the sea with garden furniture and an orchard and a volleyball/badminton court to the back of the building.
