Skyber Lowen is tucked away in the hamlet of Kuggar on the eastern side of the stunning Lizard Peninsula – almost an island surrounded as it is by beautiful coastline to the west and east and the Helford River to the north. There are numerous coastal and country walks to be enjoyed with much of the coastline being in the ownership of the National Trust.

Kuggar itself is typically quiet and peaceful and has a couple of campsites and small bars which, along with the rest of Cornwall, become more lively in the peak summer season with some live music.

There is a Spar Shop and a Post Office in nearby Ruan Minor. The golden sands at Kennack are a three minute drive or a 15 minute walk from the property and dog-friendly all year, with some restrictions during July and August. The picturesque villages of Cadgwith and Coverack are nearby with the amazing Kynance Cove just a short distance by car.

The barn itself is presented to the very highest of standards. Set out in reverse style, the first floor living space takes advantage of the high pitched roof with exposed beams. The modern kitchen is immaculate. Large windows create an open airy feel and there is a cosy wood burning stove to keep you warm during the winter months. French windows open onto a balcony with steps down to the garden. The bedrooms are all on the ground floor.


Ground Floor: Entrance porch through to entrance hall. Master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, king size bed and en-suite shower room. One twin room with 2'6" beds and fitted wardrobes and French doors to patio. A double room with standard double bed (access from one side only), and storage space. Family bathroom with shower over the bath.

First Floor: Open plan kitchen / dining and sitting room with cosy wood burning stove. The top of the stairs has a fixed stair gate.
