The Lizard Peninsula
Located at Mawgan on the Lizard Peninsula, we are ideally situated for touring West Cornwall's gardens, beaches towns and coastline. The Lizard is one of the last remaining absolutely unspoilt areas of the South West. Small fishing villages nestle into the rugged coastline and the central moorlands are home to countless rare birds and plants. The coves with their sandy beaches and rock pools are perfect for summer days, and winter walks.
Helston (The gateway to the Lizard Peninsula) is one of the prettiest market towns in Cornwall, with cobbled streets and alley's and a variety of little shops, restaurants and pubs. Famous for the ''Flora Day'' in May each year, Helston has retained a strong sense of tradition and history. From Penrose Park, at the bottom of the town, you can walk through beautiful woodland along the edge of Loe Pool, which is the largest natural freshwater lake in Cornwall. This walk also takes you to Loe Bar, the sandbank that separates the pool from the sea.
The Lizard is well known for its collection of picturesque coves and bays, from the awe inspiring beauty of Kynance Cove on the western coast to The Lizard itself - Britains most southerly tip. The popular holiday hotspots of St. Ives, Penzance, Lands End, Truro and Falmouth are all within a forty minute drive away. The famous Eden project is approximately one hour's drive away, but well worth the visit; but there are many spectacular gardens in the local area; including Trebah and Glendurgan on the eastern fringes of the Peninsula.
Take the Lizard road from Helston A3083, continue after roundabout - 1 mile, turn left at blue B&B sign, follow signs ½ mile.
