In a quiet corner of the Lizard peninsular, a little off the main tourist routes. The 10min walk from the cottage down to Kennack beach, through the beautiful woodland of the nature reserve, is wonderful; especially early in the morning and at sundown. The main...More

About the neighbourhood
The area surrounding Little Gwendreath is a national nature reserve and a site of special scientific interest within Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The rare geology of the area creates a haven for exceptional plants and flowers. Around the coastline you’ll find little fishing ports with huge granite sea walls to protect from the Atlantic gales, restaurants specialising in freshly caught seafood, and gorgeous sandy bays with jagged black rocks jutting out in to the sea (Kennack Sands, Kynance Cove and Coverack beach and more). Stand right on the tip of the Lizard and look out to sea. At 49°57' N, the most southerly point on the UK’s mainland, watch the waves as they hurtle to the shore and try to catch a glimpse of a seal.
Getting around
Our location is remote with very limited public transport nearby so it is best to come by car so that you can fully explore the area.
