Cornwall's unique character comes from its historic landscape and some 400 miles of spectacular coastline.
Lizard Village is the most southerly settlement on the British mainland. There are a number of active social clubs, three pubs, several local cafes and an excellent primary school. Arranged around the village green and surrounded by National Trust land, the village is popular with holidaymakers and residents alike.
Kynance Cove, one of the best-loved beaches in the county, it is two miles to the west, with Landewednack Beach within a mile; to the north-east the pretty fishing village of Cadgwith lies some three miles distant, while more varied shopping and dining facilities can be found in Mullion, which also hosts an Ofsted outstanding secondary school, approximately five miles north-west.
The Lizard Peninsula is renowned for its scenery, flora and fauna. Much of the coastline is protected by the National Trust and the surrounding countryside is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, characterised by towering serpentine cliffs, magnificent beaches and pretty fishing villages. The Lizard's varied strata and microclimate allow 600 species of flowering plant, nearly a quarter of all UK species, to thrive here, including Cornish Heath, found nowhere else in Britain.
The market town of Helston has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities, whilst the cathedral city of Truro, approximately 25 miles away, is the municipal centre of the county.
Travel links to the area are good, with Lizard village being served by wide roads and the A30 providing dual carriageway access through Cornwall from the M5 at Exeter. There are mainline railway stations at Redruth and Truro and Cornwall Airport (Newquay), offers both domestic and international locations
