Nestled just 60 yards from the azure embrace of the sea, The Crag beckons discerning travellers to an extraordinary realm of luxury and tranquillity. This splendid Arts and Crafts villa, set amidst a half-acre of pristine grounds, graces the precipice of a front-line cliff top, standing proudly at an awe-inspiring 300 feet above sea level. Here, you'll discover a sanctuary of opulence, where panoramic vistas stretching 180 degrees across the sea and bay unfurl before your very eyes.

The Crag, a jewel on the crown of Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, enjoys the coveted embrace of a warmer and sunnier microclimate. This region, celebrated for its sandy beaches, hidden coves, and cinematic landscapes, has recently played a starring role in the latest television series of "Poldark." As you step into this coastal wonderland, you'll find the garden gate opening onto the enchanting coastal path, inviting you to embark on miles of breathtaking circular walks.

A mere 300 yards from the gate lies the secluded sandy haven of Housel Bay, a pristine shoreline where serenity reigns supreme. This tranquil retreat, revealed at low tide, promises an idyllic playground for those privileged to call The Crag home.

Tucked away at the end of a 'no through road' in a hamlet of just fifteen homes, The Crag strikes the perfect balance between seclusion and accessibility. While it enjoys an air of exclusivity, it remains well-connected, with the charming Lizard village a mere half-mile away. Here, a delightful selection of food shops, cafes, and traditional pubs awaits, not to mention the famed pasty shop, a local institution.

Your Coastal Retreat

The Crag offers a year-round haven of comfort, lovingly restored to preserve its original hall mosaic floor and stained-glass hall windows. Its signature feature, without a doubt, is the breathtaking sea view that graces the principal rooms, front bedrooms, and outdoor patio. These views have found their way onto calendars, encapsulating the very essence of Cornwall's natural beauty.

Enormous picture windows and patio doors frame the mesmerizing seascape to the south, inviting abundant natural light and optimizing your connection with the sea. Whether you're savouring a summer evening or seeking solace by the log fire during winter's Atlantic storms, The Crag promises an unforgettable experience.

Just half a mile away stands the iconic Lizard Lighthouse, a guardian angel to the many boats navigating the nearby channels. The Lizard Peninsula boasts a treasure trove of sandy coves, including the renowned Kynance, Mullion, Coverack, and Kennack. Nearby, the Helford River offers superb sailing waters, immortalized by the works of literary legend Daphne Du Maurier. Explore the Gweek Seal Sanctuary, immerse yourself in the adventures at Flambards Adventure Park, or indulge in the culinary delights of Porthleven, home to the celebrity chef Michael Caines restaurant.

Venture further afield to discover larger towns such as Falmouth, St Ives, and Penzance, where the enchanting St Michael's Mount awaits your exploration. The cathedral city of Truro, a cultural and retail hub, is also within easy reach.

As spring and summer bloom, Cornwall's famous gardens come alive with the vibrant hues of camellias, azaleas, and rhododendrons. Savor the delectable Roskilly's ice cream, locally crafted near Coverack, and explore farm trails. Mullion offers the Chocolate Factory, where you can witness the art of chocolate-making. And don't miss the chance to savour the local delicacies of crab and lobster, with fishing, sailing, golf, and horse riding all within easy reach.

Your Seaside Escape Awaits

At The Crag, time dances to the rhythm of the waves, and each moment is a masterpiece. Embrace the coastal dream, where luxury and natural beauty converge in harmonious splendour. Your escape to The Crag is an invitation to live life on the edge of extraordinary.
