Farm shops and Delis on the Lizard, West Cornwall

We start our journey in Helston and go a little out of our way in the first instance, but it’s worth it – Porthleven Corner Deli is full of tempting treats. We then head out of Helston, past Culdrose for the start of our loop of the Lizard.

Tremayne Quay Picnic Walk

We wanted to go on a picnic. And the best kind of picnic usually involves a bit of a ramble to walk off those scones, as long as you don't have to carry the hamper too far. So, we chose Tremayne Quay near Mawgan on the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall.
