Welcome to The Lizard Peninsula's online brochure website helping to promote local business's and provide information to visitors and residents.

Once you've entered Cornwall, assuming you're driving down, go past Launceston, over Bodmin Moor, carry on down the A30 past Bodmin and keep on going! Swing onto the A39 and you'll go past Truro, Penryn and then you've just about made it! From here you can switch to the smaller roads that twist and turn down towards the various small villages on the Lizard Peninsula. What you are now in, is one of the last truly unspoilt areas of Cornwall.

The Lizard Peninsula, in case you haven’t guessed it by now, is the most southerly area of the British Isles, an expanse of about 14 miles in length and 14 miles in width and surrounded by the sea on three sides; hence 'Peninsula'! The popular town of Falmouth is about 10 miles to the North-East and Helston, a good sized town, is to the North.

The Lizard Peninsula is home to some great villages, bastions of Cornish life that have overtly at least, escaped modern life. Time seems to move slower here and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Needless to say during the Summer months, the Lizard does get very busy, but actually, looking around the villages such as Coverack, Mullion and Gweek during those times, it doesn’t 'seem' that busy compared with other areas of Cornwall. Either way, busy or not, Summer or Winter, the villages of the Lizard Peninsula are fantastic.

Coming to Cornwall on holiday? The Lizard is the epitome of a Cornish Holiday, fantastically sandy clean beaches with turquoise water to boot, Pasties for the family, Ice Creams all round and Cornish Ale for stressed dads! The kids wont be bored, there’s stacks to do just poking around the beaches and countryside – no need to spend a fortune, though if you're happy to pay there’s a number of attractions and activities for the whole family.

Looking for accommodation? In the eighties, slightly damp bed and breakfasts were the norm, now self catering cottages (without the damp) are all the rage. So competitive is the self catering market, there is nearly always a bargain to be had, a last minute deal or a really early booking, self catering is actually very cost effective. Needless to say the Lizard also has a number of Hotels, a plethora of bed and breakfasts and a scattering of holiday parks. However, what better fun than a camping holiday warts an all!

Yup, the Lizard Peninsula has to be THE place to stay when visiting Cornwall, uncrowded, fantastic scenery, friendly locals and great beer!
