We parked up for free in the small village where there are a couple of pubs, cafes and shops, it's then a short walk to the Lizard Head coastal point although you can drive right up to and park at the start of the walk down the coastal path, I assume that there'll be charges for this though. We went... More

I think this place is the most beautiful place on earth! Lovely coves, coast walks, so much to see and do. I love the winter time better because it's so peaceful.

Beautiful place. Lots of lovely walks. We had our three children and two dogs with us and there was plenty to keep them all happy. The ice creams are amazing. Cornwall is a very beautiful part of England

What a fantastic location. We stayed in a local holiday cottage just a few yards from the Top House Inn where they provide excellent fare. The whole area is tranquil and very relaxing, just what you need if the stress of life is getting too much. An excellent butcher/greengrocer, post office, gift shops, and whippet racing on the football pitch... More

The Lizard peninsula is just stunning. We stayed for just over a week, the weather was mostly perfect, and I loved exploring the different stretches of... More

We love staying anywhere on the Lizard Peninsula. We find the locals to be so hospitable and the scenery awesome. It is such a convenient location to visit anywhere within the lizard as well as easy access for day trips to other parts of Cornwall.

From the point you get stunning views along the coast line. There are a couple of gift shops there and a local craftsman working serpentine stone.
