04/04/2019 Springtime on the Lizard

With a wonderful mixture of warming sunshine and bursting hedgerows full of wild flowers, Springtime on the Lizard Peninsula is a real favourite for visitors and locals alike.

The lead up to Easter brings out the wildlife, you might spot basking sharks below the crystal clear coastal waters, or perhaps a few African birds who have come to their second home, like the Hoopoe. When it comes to flowers, bluebells are a wonderful addition to the landscape, dappled along Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek. The humble Thrift is one we adore, the pink flowers carpet the cliffs providing soft pink splashes, striking against the blue sea and sky.

It's not just natural beauty that you can enjoy this time of year, the Lizard Art Co-operative hold their Spring Art Fair on the 7th to the 28th of April with artists from and inspired by the area. With a wide spectrum of styles and media all influenced by this special place. (www.lizardart.co.uk)

The wonderful landscape at this most southerly tip of Cornwall has been designated a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and it’s easy to see why. With a large proportion managed by our National Trust this varied landscape retains the feel of yesteryear, that slower pace of life.
