About the Owner
We live in a small fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula, South west Cornwall with our three young boys. Simon is a retired fisherman and I was a primary school teacher until I gave up my post to look after our children and concentrate on managing our holiday properties. We are a small, family owned and run business and we are delighted to say that many of our guests return again and again.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This accommodation is clean, warm and comfortable. It offers a great location from which to explore some of Cornwall's most spectacular coastline and stunning gardens. As a bonus, the coastal paths were filled with flowers on our visit in the middle of May.

Diamond in the rough
On arrival at the bungalow my first impression was how clean and welcoming. Lovely white clean bed linen too. Fiona had left us some lovely homemade scones and jam and cream. Lovely selection of toys for my grandson. Unfortunately maybe my expectations were too high but there seemed to be quite a number of things that really needed addressing and I felt these things were unsafe for my grandson and my dogs, mainly the lack of fencing that had come down and not been repaired as was mentioned by previous guests in the visitor book. Dangerously hot radiators that could not be adjusted as no thermostat valves on some. This ultimately led to our early departure, maybe time to do some much needed repairs etc to the property. Lots of small things that need some attention that would make this lovely positioned bungalow a real gem.

Cornwall enjoys an excellent climate with very mild winters and summers that are almost Mediterranean in nature. This climate has in turn helped with the growth and development of a wealth of botanical gardens in Cornwall that have become renowned worldwide.
Located at the southernmost end of the British Isle, in the county of Cornwall, the Lizard Peninsula is bordered on three sides by the sea, and the Helford River to the north. The name the Lizard is believed by some to come from the Cornish word “lezou” meaning headland. The National Trust owns a major proportion of the peninsula, and this helps in keeping it unspoilt and unchanged. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Lizard Peninsula has some of the most spectacular scenery in Cornwall.
There are many small coves, once used by smugglers to land their kegs of French Brandywine, and beaches to be found at the Lizard, and the South-West coastal path is very popular with walkers. When people come to the Lizard they are inspired by the scenery to write, take photographs and paint. Many people go there just to escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. The Peninsula has a maritime past and many shipwrecks can be seen all along the coastline.
