Things to do

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.

Perfect Holiday Location

5 of 5
A lovely, spacious property in a beautiful, peaceful location. The weather was kind to us, and we enjoyed breakfast and dinner outside every day. A great base for exploring. We liked playing at the playground in Mawgan, trips to the beach - Kynance Cove and Gunwalloe - Church Cove, wandering Trebah Gardens, walking to Tremayne Quay and Fish & Chips in Porthleven. The nearby pasty farm is well worth a visit too! I recommend staying at Trelowarren Mill.

Excellent cottage in a quintessential Cornish village

5 of 5
The cottage was very cosy with all the necessities for a stay in the country. Fiona was excellent to communicate with and very obliging. The property quite close to a traditional pub with great food but there was no problem with noise. We had a great few days in the cottage and in Cornwall in general. We were only two in the cottage but there was plenty of room for more
