The property

Ruggedly picturesque, the unspoilt coastal village of Porthallow once prospered from pilchard fishing and the 'Five Pilchard Inn' nestling beside the shingled cove is a link to the past.

A peaceful backwater, fishing, kayaking, diving and walking the coastal footpath are favourite pastimes or time can be idled away enjoying panoramic views across the wide sweep of Falmouth Bay.

Set well back from the cove but still with views of the sea, Chy Kembro is very special.

Oozing comfort and style the presentation of the interior is fashionably sleek and contemporary.

Boasting an integral designer kitchen/dining room, a beautifully fitted family bathroom, and two tasteful bedrooms on the ground floor, stairs lead up to the master bedroom and a spacious lounge.

Here fully opening tilt-and-turn picture windows add an exceptional aspect to the rooms letting light and air flow in and framing pretty views.

The lounge is a spacious room in which to relax beside the glow of a multi-fuel stove, brown leather settees form a striking contrast to the neutral theme which flows throughout the interior and many an hour will be spent on the comfortable window seat gazing out.

Both double bedrooms boast the comfort of six foot beds which can be divided if necessary.

Enclosed lawned gardens to the front and rear give a choice of settings for quiet relaxation or alfresco meals.

The local village pub is open all year round and you will find a couple of pubs and restaurants and small shop in the nearby village of St Keverne 2 miles away.

Along the coast, to the north, is Gillan Creek and the Helford River, and to the south is the village of Porthoustock, and offshore The Manacles, a great hazard to shipping and a popular diving site for shipwrecks. The South West Coast Path passes through Porthallow which lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, especially renowned for it's geology and plants. One road runs through the village, and there is a post office and public house, the Five Pilchards, named for the pilchard fishery. The beach is privately owned with access open to all.
