Poldhu Cove

General

  • Small friendly site on the Lizard Peninsula
  • Two miles from Lizard Point and three from Mullion village
  • Access to the South West Coast Path within walking distance of Kynance

If y'all would like some suggestions on what to see and do when scooting around the Lizard, ask the clan at Little Trethvas Holidays.

Convivial owners Liz and Mike have been camping on this cracking Cornish peninsula for over 20 years and know very much what's what re where to go in the region, as well as what guests might like on a site… such as the Little Trethvas café to eat in or take away, open daily (and hamsters and guinea pigs to cuddle during school holidays).

All these marks of good travelling taste are on a small, natural-looking site two miles from Lizard Point and Cadgwith fishing village and three miles from Mullion village; the site is also accessible from the South West Coast Path (just off the lane) and within walking distance of fair Kynance Cove. There are six toilets and five showers in a block newly renovated for the 2018 season, as well as a revamped and undercover washing-up area, washing machine, tumble dryer, outdoor drying area and a fridge and freezer for guests' use.

Little Trethvas also has a tourist information room with a local attractions board updated daily – and if you want some more specific info, Liz and Mike just might be able to let you know.

Local attractions

You'll be on the beach, cliffs and along the South West Coast Path first, probably… and after that, there's loads to do around Little Trethvas Holidays, from fishing and sailing to horse riding and off-road biking.

As with much/most of Cornwall, the surf is pretty spectacular around this part of coast too, but it's quieter here than more famed surf spots like Newquay: try Kennack Sands or the surf school at Poldhu Cove.

Kids will likely love a whirl around Flambards theme park at Helston and have a hoot at Gweek's Cornish Seal Sanctuary; Falmouth Maritime Museum and the 650 birds and animals of the Paradise Park Wildlife Sanctuary at Hayle should also be hits.

One of the most popular places to stop off around the Lizard is the country's tip at Land's End – be sure to get your pic snapped at the iconic signpost – and another is most lovely St Michael's Mount, the tiny island with medieval church and castle, reached across the water from Marazion.

Must see

  • National Seal Sanctuary (7.2 miles)
  • Flambards (7.3 miles)
  • Trebah Garden (8.8 miles)
