Down towards the southern tip of the Lizard,  this former Victorian seaside hotel is the most southernmost buildings in England, and enjoys outstanding sea views from its high vantage point above the South West Coast path and Lizard Point. It’s not a large place, with just 28 beds in all, but it's a perfect place for families, lots of en-suite rooms, a dining room and a lounge, a self-catering kitchen and drying room – and a lovely garden from which to enjoy the wonderful coastal panoramas. There are lots of activities on offer nearby, for example surfing with the Cornwall Surf Academy, boating with Helford River Boat hire, riding at the Poltesco Riding Stables, while on rainy days there are board games to play and the sea views to enjoy. Make a visit too to Lizard Lighthouse, while the stunning white sands at Kynance Cove and equally sandy Gunwalloe Beach are both good places for swimming and sunbathing. A spectacular place for a budget seaside holiday.
