M'an Lesard goz dinerby - Welcome to the Lizard!

The Lizard peninsula is the most southerly point of the UK and because of this it has a unique set of weather patterns, flora and fauna. Largely unspoilt, people come to the Lizard to see it's dramatic scenery and rugged natural landscapes. The beaches are sandy and safe with great waves for learning to surf. The Guardian recently described it as 'almost impossibly pretty'.


Gwendreath is set back from the sea in a wooded valley which is part of the Lizard National Nature Reserve and a site of special scentific interest. The geology of the area is also very special with an abundance of serpentine rock. The victorians were big fans of serpentine and mined it locally to Gwendreath. It is much easier to find beautiful serpentine rocks on Kennack Sands - our local beach.


Access to the rest of Cornwall is easy making day trips to attractions further afield not a problem. Nearby is the market town of Helston, Flambards theme park, Roskilly's ice cream farm, Mullion golf club and Goonhilly earth station amongst others. If you fancy visiting Cornwall's larger attractions such as Land’s End, Newquay, the Eden project or the Minack Theatre most are within an hour's drive from Little Gwendreath.
