15/12/2016 Winter on The Lizard Peninsula

When we think of a Cornish holiday, we tend to think sun-drenched summer days building memories at the sea shore. But if you only visit our diverse county in high season then you miss the quieter, more serene side of this corner of England.

Our antidote to the shorter days? We just make the time count! With quieter roads you can see the real, local's Cornwall apart from the crowds. Our subtropical gardens like Trebah boast interest all year round, plus Spring comes to Cornwall first (not that we are boasting!) Trebah provides a sheltered getaway with impressive vistas. Not forgetting its very own secluded beach, Polgwidden Cove.

Or follow the Southwest Coastal path as it rises and falls along our undulating coast. After all that bracing fresh air, sample local ale in award winning pubs and huddle round warming fires.

The Lizard is a great place for storm watching, with waves of 50ft and winds that blow in excess of 70mph, as long as you keep safe, the raging waves are spectacular.

And the food.. you may have noticed that Cornwall is having some what of a food revolution! We always knew our fresh seafood, world-class chefs and traditional fare were special, but it seems the rest of the world are waking up to the culinary delights we have to offer. Few things beat a smoking-hot Cornish pasty when you are out and about exploring the fishing villages on Enlgand’s most southernly point. Delicious food and a view to remember, what more could you want?

So for peace and quiet, a chance to breath, to step back, to notice - come to the Lizard in Winter. Pubs resound with fisherman singing carols, harbours are decked in sparkly lights and with our cosy stone cottages are ready and waiting to welcome you, there couldn’t be a better time to unwind. You can check our availability here. Pictured above our beautiful Christmas Cottage on the Helford River.
