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.

The kitchen is very well equipped. We were very lucky with the weather and ate our breakfast on the terrace taking in the stunning view. The cottage is very cosy and furnished to a high standard. We hardly used our car because little ferries are available to Flushing and St Mawes to name but a few. We did a lovely walk around the peninsula from Flushing, stopping at Pandora's Inn for lunch on the jetty. We will definitely be back! Many thanks.

The number of bedrooms suited us perfectly with 6 sharing and 3 in each of the double rooms. We loved the downstairs area and spent a lot of time socialising in the kitchen. The kitchen itself was well-equipped, including lots of spices! I would certainly recommend the property to anyone else. It would be great for two families with the layout.
