Make a holiday cottage in the Lizard Peninsula your home away from home

Occupying much of southwest Cornwall, the Lizard Peninsula is one of the most unique areas of Britain. The peninsula lays claim to the southernmost point of England and is surrounded by the sea. As a consequence, this part of the country is full of beautiful white-sand beaches, rocky coves, fresh air, and in receipt of plenty of sunshine. The outstanding natural beauty of the Lizard Peninsula combined with its great weather and charming fishing villages make the area popular with holidaying couples, families, and tourists who enjoy spending time outdoors.

HomeAway has numerous holiday cottages in the Lizard Peninsula available throughout the year. From tucked-away rural retreats to seaside homes, holidaymakers are truly spoilt for choice in southwest Cornwall. Most Lizard Peninsula holiday cottages range from having between two and four bedrooms, and can accommodate groups of up to eight or more. Fully furnished and offering a variety of amenities such as close proximity to the beach, Wi-Fi, and the ability to bring pets along, these holiday homes are great value and can be booked for as little as £275 per week

Things to do

-Beaches: Being on a peninsula, there are plenty of beaches to choose from. Kynance Cove Beach on the Lizard Heritage Coast is perhaps the most famous. Contrasting white sand, dark rocks, and blue seas meet here to create a photographer’s dream. Closer to the village of Mullion, Polurrian Cove Beach is another gem that faces the sheltered south west. Gunwalloe Church Beach near riverside town Helston is also a lovely place to visit and is suitable for swimming.

-Watersports: Visitors staying in a Lizard Peninsula holiday cottage have the opportunity to partake in any number of exhilarating water sports. Several beaches on the peninsula are well suited for surfing as well as windsurfing. Sailing and boating are also favourite activities in the region. Whether sailing for the sake of sightseeing or on a fishing trip, visitors have plenty of options to choose from.

-Outdoor activities: In addition to its wealth of lovely beaches, The Lizard is also full of wonderful walking trails. The Lizard Point walk along the South West Coast Path is very rewarding, taking walkers to the southernmost point of Britain. In addition to the amazing views, visitors may also find some friendly seals below in the water in addition to several varieties of seabirds.

-Family attractions: Flambards Theme Park located on the outskirts of Helston is a great place to take children, as it has everything from museums to plenty of rides and activities to enjoy. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, also near Helston, is home to several species of seals, sea lions, otters, and penguins, and is open daily to visitors.

Weather in the Lizard Peninsula

Pleasant weather is the norm in this part of Britain making holiday homes in the Lizard Peninsula ideal for booking a break at any time of year. Summer highs hit the high-teens and low-20s, whilst winter weather gently dips into the single digits, but not much further. Light drizzle and rain are more common in the colder months, but summer visitors can look forward to plenty of sunshine, particularly in July and August.

Stunning location and beautifully styled apartment

5 of 5
An amazing apartment with stunning views and high spec decor. The owner is very thoughtful and on our arrival we found flowers, pastries, tea,coffee, milk and a bottle of prosecco. It's these thoughtful gestures that make staying in this apartment very special. A truly amazing place to relax and explore Falmouth and surrounding area from.

Stunning location

5 of 5
We have just spent 6 nights at this property , and have had a very relaxing break . The location is just stunning , and only a 10 minute walk for the coastal path . The barn itself is well equipped with lots of little extras such as shower gel , coffee , tea , home made jam, etc . Everything is in excellent condition and the overall feel is that the owners go the extra mile to make you feel welcome . A lovely property in a great location , not very far from Falmouth centre .
