Thank you for a wonderful New Year's stay. The cream tea was a lovely touch. The house was comfortable and well stocked, we had a great time exploring the surrounding beaches and pubs. Thank you, well done and all the best for 2014.

The West Country region

The Lizard peninsula offers a combination of a mild climate and interesting geology to produce an area with charm and character. It includes unique habitats and species, you will find something different around every corner and cove.

The Lizard offers outdoor activities including horse riding; cycle, surf board, boat and kayak hire, exploring the beach and rock pools or walking the coastal path. Inland the villages provide history and character that add to the Peninsula’s charm.

For a day out, explore RNAS Culdrose, Flambards theme park, Gweek Seal Sanctuary, Poldark Mine, Roskilly's Dairy Farm & Ice Cream Parlour, The Marconi Centre. Other local attractions include Helston Flora Day and The Furry Dance, Goonhilly Earth Station and the Eden Project.

Facilities include 2 convenience stores with bakery, post office, hairdresser, gift and craft shops, art galleries, restaurants, bistro and cafe, fish and chip shop, pubs, free car parks and garden shop.

The coastline is designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty by the National Trust, with access to beaches and walking. Trenance chocolate factory and craft workshop is a very short walk towards Mullion Cove which has a pretty working harbour; you can still see the old pilchard cellar and net store. Fishing trips are available.

The beach at Polurrian is a 15 minute walk from Ridgeback House, it is popular with surfers, approached by an attractive walk along the cliffs or through a valley. Nearby is Poldhu Cove, an ideal and easily accessible family beach. Kynance Cove is a short drive away or can be accessed from the coastal path.

Thank you for your kind comments. You may be interested that we are planning to convert the garage into a games room, including table football and pool table with the door being replaced by large windows. It will be ready for spring / summer 2014.

Beautiful, spacious, clean property. Can't recommend enough. Look for cleanliness and comfort whenever I rent a property and this one didn't disappoint.

We got there late at night and the local contact Jenni had gone out of her way to turn on the lights for us so we would find the property easily.

The extra little touches such as the cream tea and flowers made it all the more welcoming.

We were a party of six adults and three children. There was enought space to accommodate us all easily, allowing for privacy where required and plenty of space to in the kitchen, living and dining areas for us all to socialise comfortably.

Finally, the enclosed garden and patio area was really enjoyed by all.

"Amazing child friendly house"

Went with my young family and was pleasantly surprised with how well equipped the house was for young children. Not only did the house include a play pen, but enough stair gates and guards to feel at home. Really meant we could relax and have a holiday. The cottage is located really close to a children's park and beach, which the kids loved. Definitely will be booking another week down there!
