Nice place with stunning views and scenery and walks to match. Much much nicer than lands end and no where near as commercialized. Had to chuckle at the car park pay and display sign that someone had written in marker pen not to pay and display as there is free parking by the cafe....and there is! I'm guessing that may... More

The Lizard Peninsula is beautiful, so much nicer than Land’s End. We visited the Lizard and Kynance Cove while on holiday in Cornwall. There were spectacular views from the clifftop and the walk from the car park down to the beach was a bit strenuous and quite steep. However, when you get there you will be glad you made the...

One of the most magical places if caught in the best of weather - but if you are a fan from childhood even the rain cannot put you off. The old buildings on the slip at the Lizard are not the best looking and it can be a little dangerous for kids. But the walk round to Kynance once started... More

Nice are for a walk around the coast with nice views.. but not impressive as I hoped after so many good reviews.. plus it took a long drive. Nothing special to see.

One of the most beautiful views available in the UK, a stunning place with beautiful cliffs, crashing waves and an astounding atmosphere. You will feel alive here.

The most southerly point of the British mainland remains unspoiled and makes a really good place to visit for Walkers, Birders, young and old, anyone in fact who can appreciate the natural majesty of the area. Befitting its remoteness you should expect the roads to reach it to be tight and the occasional passing places on the often single track... More

As usual any property run by The National Trust will have superb Views, The Lizard did not fail, nice litrtle Cafe at the top serving a very good selection of food we did not eat here but the Menu looked very extensive
