    The Lizard

    The Lizard Peninsula is a largely undiscovered part of the UK, a hidden area of Cornwall where few have ventured. It is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which evolves magnificently from season to season. Secluded beaches, fresh sea air, vast green landscape, and dramatic cliff tops. There really is nowhere else quite like it.

    Staying at Housel Bay is a walker’s paradise. Step directly out of their garden gate and begin your journey along the South West Coast Path. Walk for miles exploring the beauty of the Lizard Peninsula, a truly diverse and ever changing landscape.

    Venturing along the coastal path from Housel Bay in either direction admiring the rugged coastline, you can spot Atlantic grey seals, wild ponies, and if you are lucky even the famous Cornish Chough along the way. The Lizard Peninsula is home to many beautiful and rare seabirds, and nature lover’s will delight in the rare flora and fauna.

    Utterly fabulous hotel, wonderful room, comfortable bed, amazing views, fantastic food, so many positive adjectives! On a mini tour of Cornwall and I think this is our favourite stay so far, we will definitely be recommending and hopefully returning.
