The Lizard Peninsula is the most south-westerly point of the British Isles and boasts its own unique landscape with enchanting views. Browse our fantastic selection of Lizard holiday cottages to find your hideaway on this secluded Peninsula. 

The name derives from the Cornish Lis for 'place' and Ard for 'high'. A recognised area of botanical importance encircled by turquoise seas, there is nowhere quite like it elsewhere in Britain.

Surrounded on three sides by the sea, you really do feel like you have found the edge of the world here. The rocks and cliffs of the coastline offer shelter to the tiny fishing villages huddled into their coves, all of which have maintained their traditional features. The air, crisp and clean provides a calming sensation that instantly makes you feel relaxed.

The Lizard is known for its geology and mining heritage. Serpentine Stone has been quarried on the peninsula for centuries, its red, green and grey hues unique to the area. Close to the Lizard village of Coverack, the junction between the Earth’s crust and mantle can be clearly seen on the foreshore, making it a fascinating spot for geology enthusiasts.

The closest settlement to the point, Lizard town, has a community atmosphere with a hub of cottages, cafes and gift shops. The largest village on the peninsula, Mullion, is the home to a variety of popular restaurants, shops and pubs as well as the brilliant Mullion Cove.

With an inspiring sense of isolation, a Lizard Peninsula cottage would make for an unforgettable holiday.
