Veronica and John Palmer have lived in The Lizard since 1970 initially sharing their house with 5 children. John is a retired hospital chaplain and Veronica, an occupational therapist and then a teacher. Having retired, they bought the house-next-door to share with their family, friends and visitors to The Lizard.
As John had been a bush brother in NSW Australia, they renamed their house 'LIGHTNING RIDGE' after one of his parishes there.
John and Veronica love gardening, their dog, walking, the mild climate and the community around them. John still assists in local parish churches when needed. He is chaplain to Helston Royal Naval Association.
Veronica is a bibliophile and a keen family and local historian.
Veronica grew up in Cornwall during the 2nd WW and has always had an affinity with the area. The wildness of the sea, the huge skies and the glorious countryside keep her here.
In and outdoor safe space for children and pets. A choice of country walks and local beaches.
Village amenities geared to visitors, but not too far from local supermarkets!
Great views to weather watch, plenty of books, games and toys. Even an organ (foot operated!) to amuse the musical.
The Lizard, famous for it's serpentine, has it's own lifeboat with a friendly welcome for visitors. Culdrose Naval Air Station at Helston for 'plane spotters. A rescue helicopter crew is always on standby.
There are riding, fishing, surf and diving centres fairly close by. Excellent restaurants and pubs are on offer, as well as NT properties and other gardens offering specialist plants.
