Little An Skyber
Changes Fridays Code P094
Little An Skyber is a quality barn conversion situated on the edge of the picturesque wooded valley known as Gweek Drive and set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the doorstep of The Lizard National Nature Reserve. The woods opposite the drive is a fantastic place to walk during April and May for the amount of wild bluebells which carpet the woodland floor.
The property is half a mile from the centre of the village of Mawgan and one and half miles from the creekside village of Gweek which lies at the head of the beautiful Helford River and is home to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Mawgan has a fine dining pub/restaurant, The Ship Inn, and there's also a village store specialising in locally sourced fresh produce and a good range of Cornish food and drink. The nearby historic Trelowarren Estate has a popular bistro restaurant and a Cornwall Craft Association gallery.
Being a popular area for walkers, the South West Coast Path, the National Nature Reserve, the Helford River, including the Frenchman’s Creek, and several National Trust properties are all within easy reach. The numerous beaches around the Lizard Peninsular and further afield are also within a short driving distance and the market town of Helston is approx 4 miles away and is home to the delightful Flora Day celebrations every May.
