There are many quaint coves on the Lizard including Mullion, Church Cove, Kynance Cove, Coverack, Cadgwith, Kennack Cove and Gunwalloe. Poldue Cove is where Marconi sent his first radio signal in 1901

Our stay at Cwary Vean

5 of 5
It was great to get away & enjoy a cottage near the sea. The cottage was comfortable & had everything we needed. It was great to be close to the sea! Chris was an excellent host. A lovely part of the world to be (when the sun's out!). Lots to see & do.

New Thatch (Ruan Minor) B&B Perfection.

5 of 5
Francesca and Simon offer B&B perfection. Their accommodation is spotless, warm, cosy and welcoming. Their attention to detail and geniality are second to none. The full Cornish breakfast (I say Cornish, as it includes the wonderful local delicacy “Hogs Pudding”), is delicious, not only that, but if required, cereal and as much toast, preserves, tea/coffee and juice is on offer. Nothing, it seems, is too much trouble and one is made to feel so very welcome. New Thatch B&B and the beautiful surrounding area should be a MUST for visitors to Cornwall.
