The Lizard has been designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ as it justifiably deserves. It’s teeming with diverse wildlife and beautiful coves, stunning cliff paths, sandy beaches, fishing villages and spectacular scenery. The Nanfan Barn cottages are perfectly set up by the Owners to ensure a relaxing, tranquil holiday in spacious accommodation and superb views. It has a remote feel, but it is only a short drive to Helston and much of south and western Cornwall is within easy reach. There are lots of footpaths both inland and coastal, and the Coastal Path at Poldhu is close by. The beaches of Poldhu – a mile away, and Church/ Dollar Cove, and the beach Church at Gunwallow (it’s a Medieval Church -Poldark and Doc Martin film there) are close. The Lizard is England's most southerly point. The Lizard point is famous for shipwrecks and the area highlights include early Spring flowers –including beautiful yellow daffodils everywhere, the Lizard Lighthouse, swimming and surfing from many sandy beaches, and delightful fishing coves. At the heart of the Lizard village stands a 13th century church, famous for it’s ornate woodwork decorating the end of the each pew and depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament. Outside in the water, two, thick sea walls, built in the late 19th century, protect the harbour from the worst of the wind. Local fisherman still work in the harbour to land fabulous fresh seafood, some of which is then served in the local pubs and restaurants.

There is sailing at Falmouth or on the beautiful Helford river and it also has picturesque village and lovely pub with the ferry across to Trebah Gardens, and Frenchman’s Creek (Daphne du Maurier- ‘Rebecca’). There are heather covered moors unique to the area with autumn also a great time of year to visit and many open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food (several restaurants are Michelin recommended)! There are loads more places to visit on the Lizard and highlights include walks along the coastal path and cliffs, the famous Victorian holiday destination of Kynance Cove with the beautiful rare Serpentine rocks and cafe, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, and the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station and its Segway course. Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine.

Mullion is the largest village situated on the Lizard Peninsula and boasts a number of quality pubs, cafes and restaurants among it's various attractions. Four beaches – the towering cliffs of Mullion Cove- a fishing harbour, Poldhu Cove with café (and Marconi Centre), isolated Polhurrian Cove and amazing Church Cove - are conveniently nearby and easy access to the South West Coastal Path offers visitors the chance to explore the beautiful surrounding cliff scenery. The coastal path goes to the miles of sand at Loe Bar and Pool (Cornwall’s largest lake and wildlife haven) and on to the Penrose parkland.

?There are so many activities to choose from locally. You can take a boat trip across the beautiful Helford River and explore the gardens at Trebah. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven and beach fishing from Loe Bar. There is great diving on the Manacles from Porthkerris and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can find great surf at Porthleven and Poldhu. Canoeing and bard surfing are popular on the protected Eastern shores

A great property

A lovely property - spacious and well furnishing. Really nice bathrooms. Everything was lovely and clean. The kitchen had loads of storage and plenty of room in the big fridge freezer. It is quite remote in that there is not a supermarket close by, but I took all the food we needed so that was not an issue for us. Loved the summer house - when it was sunny it was so nice to sit in it and enjoy the great coastal view. The Jacuzzi was a treat - very special.

Great week away

The instructions meant the house was easy to find and we were delighted with the standard and comfort provided. The location provides fantastic views and a short walk provides easy access to the coastal path and excellent pub in Porthalllow. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the quiet position of the house allowed for undisturbed sleep. An excellent hot tub helped to erase the aches and strains of the day. Only minor drawback was that despite being pet pet friendly the garden is not fully enclosed. Would certainly recommend.

Guest from Heathfield stayed for 7 nights.

Fantastic cottage and setting with amazing views

Lovely cottage, very well done up to high standards. Fantastic kitchen/diner, shame the spacious and lovely sitting room is upstairs as just ends up getting used less. We were very lucky with superb sunny weather so spent most of the time outside or in kitchen/dining area with patio doors open. Dog friendly, however would have preferred the garden fencing to fully block the driveway side. Short walk to a lovely dog-friendly beach. Personally we liked the private/secluded location and don't mind the steep narrow lanes, but would have been nice to have a slightly more generous welcome pack even if it means a top up to the cost, as it adds to the comfort given the location.

Guest from Towcester stayed for 7 nights.

Idilic week away

This property is a little gem. Fairly remote with wonderful ever changing views of the sea. It was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We were a party of 3 generations plus pooch. We relaxed, had plenty of space to play and had lots of fun with the board games in the lounge. The house keeper was friendly and sorted out a bbq for us nothing it seemed was too much trouble. The hot tub was a welcome bonus and enjoyed by us all. The only fault was that we weren’t staying another week! We would definitely stay again. Plenty of walks locally, local pub was great, make sure you book a table it gets busy. We did find beaches restricting, only a few allow dogs, seems local Cornish folk also feel the same way... it didn’t prevent us getting out and about though. A wonderful stay with many memories made.

Fantastic hideaway - peace, quiet and luxury

We enjoyed a fantastic weeks’ escape here in May 2018 - truly in the middle of nowhere which for us was a good thing - no car noise, no city noise - just peace and quiet and great skies at night as well. Ideally situated for most things in the south west - porthleven was about. 30 minute drive for us most days and offers a number of excellent dining options and views. The owners take pride in this house, no expense has been spared - and the hot tub completes the picture Enjoy!!
