An beautiful hidden gem at Lizard
What a wonderful week we spent in Simon and Alexandra’s cottages in the beginning of April! We went with our three kids (2, 6 and 8) and our friends with same size family.
The location on the isolated Lizzard peninsula was exactly what we needed: off the beaten track, quite isolated so safe from the cars and traffic, so the kids could be be quite independent, beautiful surroundings and views, very peaceful. You (and the kids) can easily spend few days without even leaving the grounds as there is so much to explore and enjoy: each of the cottages has its own garden, there is a small hill if you want even better views, there is an orchard where you can have a picnic, there are donkeys you can befriend, there is a wild patch of woodland with a small stream where kids can build a den, play around the stream, no to mention fully equipped playroom in a separate building. Despite having 6 kids with us we could still enjoy a quiet glass of bubbly in those peaceful surroundings. The whole place feels really idyllic without being manicured. All the attractions of the Lizzard are within a short drive.
The cottages are really charming, fully equipped, perfectly clean plus we had lovely local products waiting for us upon arrival. Simon and Alexandra are wonderful hosts and very helpful with their knowledge of the area. We enjoyed our stay very much, kids keep talking about walking in wellies up the stream and the donkeys - thank you so much Simon and Alexandra, we would love to be back.
Amazing family holiday
The cottage and location was absolutely amazing. We were a large family with lots of kids who loved every day. The cottage and the gardens/fields provided so much for the kids to do.
Simon (owner) was great. He spent time to show us around and tell us about the area. The kids also helped Simon look after the donkeys and chickens.
Great stay and looking forward to booking it again for next year.
There is a good pub - the Prince of Wales at Newtown, just over a mile away or a 20 minute walk, plus more pubs in nearby St Keverne, Coverack and at stunning Cadgwith Cove. There are large supermarkets in Helston and good shopping further afield in Falmouth and Truro.
Coverack has a traditional working harbour, a general store, Internet Cafe, friendly pub and several eating establishments. There are many other beautiful villages to discover around the Lizard such as St Keverne, Porthallow, Manaccan, Helford and Gweek, all with excellent pubs. There is a brewery at Coverack for beer lovers! There are a number of good eating establishments dotted around the peninsula. "South" at Manaccan is a good find, plus "New Yard" at Trelowarren, "Kota" and "Amelie's" at Porthleven, not to mention the inevitable Cornish pasties - Leggy's in Ruan Minor or the famous Ann's Pasties at Lizard.
The Lizard is an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and has some spectacular coastal walks. It is England's most southerly point and the highlights include early Spring flowers, the Lizard lighthouse, swimming and surfing from sandy beaches, delightful fishing coves, sailing on the Helford river, heather covered moors in Autumn, open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food! There are loads of places to visit and highlights include Lizard Point, walks along the coastal path, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine.There are so many activities to choose from locally. You can take a boat trip across the beautiful Helford River and explore the gardens at Trebah. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven. There is great diving on the Manacles and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can find great surf at Porthleven or Loe Bar.
