On the Lizard Peninsula showcasing beautiful beaches, harbours and secret coves, Ridgeback House in Mullion makes a stunning base for family and friends seeking a retreat by the sea. This coastal village setting offers shops for provisions, inns and coffee houses, restaurants, craft shops and art galleries all within a short walk and the picturesque coastline entices you with hot-spot locations including Kynance Cove, Lizard Point and
Polurrian Bay Beach.
Mullion harbour and fishing cove on the eastern side of Mounts Bay has a history of smuggling, and is just a four minute drive away. Enjoy a kayaking adventure or fish from the dinky quayside. Browse the art galleries and settle with a coffee before a ramble along the cliff top framing uninterrupted sea views. Lizard Point, the most southerly tip of the UK, boasts a unique landscape with lighthouse and brilliant ocean vistas. Ramble the circular coast path and spy the seals and dolphins.
Arguably one of the most beautiful beaches with white sands, aqua waters and dramatic cliffs is at Kynance Cove, a 20 minute drive away. Explore the interconnecting caves that appear at low tide, swim or picnic above the beach with sublime ocean backdrop. The beach café serves refreshment including locally brewed beer. Continue east to the traditional fishing village of Cadgwith Cove with two beaches and a popular pub for pit stops. Porthleven is a favourite with eclectic restaurants, galleries and little harbour. Nearby Poldhu beach is easily accessible and popular for families with sand, surf school and cafe. Tee off at the nearby golf course or watch the wildlife across the heathlands and nature reserve.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
