The Lizard Peninsula
The Lizard Peninsula is an exposed upland landscape, with areas of open downs and associated heathland
It’s steeped with secluded sandy coves, rolling hills and rugged coastal paths. The south west coastal path can be accessed at Gunwalloe (2 miles), making us the ideal spot for walking groups!
Close by Church Cove is an enchanting, family friendly beach, full of mystery with rumoured secret paths that smugglers used in days gone by. Situated within easy access to many of the county’s main roads Lower Tregiddle is an ideal base to explore Cornwall.
Of special interest is Poldhu Cove from where Marconi sent his first transatlantic radio message in 1901. The first signal was received in Newfoundland in December of that year – an event which was to change the world.
