the magical Lizard Peninsula.

A secret back water - almost an island, girded on three sides by the sea and the fourth by the meandering waters of the Helford river, only a tiny land bridge connecting us to the rest of Cornwall. Whatever your taste or choice for relaxation we have everything for you to explore from golden beaches to pebbly coves, dramatic cliff tops to still rivers and creeks full of bird life. Freshwater lakes, open heathland, fabulously hued Serpentine rock outcrops and gardens full of sub-tropical plants warmed by the Gulf Stream.

Add to this an amazing choice of restaurants and pubs, an eclectic selection of artists and craftspeople and every activity from surfing to sailing, hiking to horse-riding and all in a quieter setting than you ever thought possible in Cornwall. We tell you what we like and love about The Lizard, share secrets with you and guarantee you will find your perfect holiday here…
