Lizard Peninsula Cottages

With the iconic coves of Coverack and Kynance and some of the best sections of the South West Coast Path, the Lizard Peninsula is a picturesque part of Cornwall that will not disappoint. Its point stretching further south than any other part of Britain, this is where the Atlantic meets the English Channel and the sea views are something special. Stay in one of our holiday cottages on the Lizard Peninsula for a Cornish holiday you won't forget.Read more

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Marine Conservation Zone, the Lizard Peninsula has been the focus of scientific and conservational interest for a long time. The unique landscape around the peninsula also makes for some great exploring, with countless beaches and coves to discover and plenty of activities for rainy days. 

If beaches are what you’re after, you’re spoilt for choice on the Lizard. From the popular spots of Poldhu, Kynance and Kennack Sands to those more off the beaten track like Polpeor, Pentreath and Lankidden, the Lizard Peninsula’s southerly location provides some of the best sea views and coastline in Cornwall. Surfing, diving and snorkelling are all great activities, and there are plenty of schools and rental locations to get you all kitted out.

For geology buffs, the Lizard is a must. It is the only location in England where you can find serpentine, a rock type made popular by Queen Victoria after becoming enamoured with it on a visit to Cornwall. At Lizard Point, there are sections of rock thought to be over 500 million years old. The variation in geology creates a unique landscape, ranging from fertile, green coastal fields to stark heathland that evokes African plains more than English countryside. 

Whatever takes your fancy on the Lizard Peninsula, we’re sure there will be something to fit the bill. Take a look at our handpicked holiday cottages in the area, and book your next Cornish adventure.
