Description from owner

Sunny Corner is a comfortable two bedroomed chalet set in an ideal location for exploring the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. The chalet is only a few minutes drive from the thatched fishing village of Cadgwith, the iconic landmark of Lizard Point, and the spectacular National Trust beach at Kynance Cove. Miles of lovely coastal footpaths await keen ramblers, and unspoiled heathland and cliffs carpeted in spring flowers will appeal to wildlife lovers.

For families there are a number of lovely beaches for sandcastles and surfing within a 15 minute drive, including Kennack Sands, Gunwalloe Church Cove and Poldhu, all of which are lifeguarded in season.

The Cornwall region

The West Country has long been one of the most popular areas of the UK for holidays, and so many people can’t be wrong! With beautiful coastline, a mild climate and rolling countryside the area has many natural attractions. Add in ice cream and a cream tea or two and it’s a winning combination.

The spectacular beaches alone are enough to keep people returning year on year, but Cornwall also has many added reasons to visit. There are nationally renowned attractions such as the Eden Project, National Maritime Museum at Falmouth and famous gardens including the Lost Gardens of Helligan, Trebah and Trelissick. Cornwall rightly remains a firm favourite for family holidays – sand castles, surfing, canoeing, walking the coastpath – it’s all on offer and waiting for you!

The Lizard Peninsula

The Lizard Peninsula, an area 10 miles across, is a beautiful and distinctive part of Cornwall south of the town of Helston. No one is quite sure of the derivation of the name, with some saying it’s from the Cornish for ‘High Place’, whilst others say it’s linked to the reptile-like appearance of the unusual, veined Serpentine rock that underlies the area.

Lizard Point itself is the Most Southerly Point of the British Mainland. Why not pop down there and have a cream tea to celebrate your most southerly visit!? Even by great Cornish standards, the coastal scenery on the Lizard is spectacular, with many naming Kynance Cove, with its turquoise sea and sandy caves, as the best beach in Cornwall. Kynance and much of the Lizard coastline, is in the care of the National Trust, and all stretches are accessible by the well-maintained coastpath. Even the keenest of walkers would be hard pressed to run out of places to explore, with a good network of inland paths making for great circular walks. The west coast of the Lizard is wild and rugged, and a haven for wildlife. The Downs (local name for heathlands) come alive with colour in August when Cornish Heath is in full bloom. Listen out for the distinctive ‘chiow’ call of choughs overhead, a rare red-legged and red-billed species of crow which is once again back and breeding on the Lizard cliffs after a 50-year absence from England. East of Lizard Point the landscape is more sheltered, with some wonderful coves to explore. Cadgwith is a real gem, with its thatched cottages and traditional fishing boats hauled up on the beach. Further round is the quaint village of Coverack, and then the Helford Estuary, famed for its tranquil, wooded creeks (including Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman's Creek), which forms the northern limit of the Lizard.

Beach lovers won’t be disappointed. As well as the more well known (and lifeguarded) beaches, including Poldhu, Kennack and Gunwalloe Church Cove, there are secret coves to be explored, including historic Poltesco, with its ruined, Victorian serpentine factory, and Soapy Cove nestled in a steep ravine. For adrenaline seekers, there is surfing and body boarding (hire and tuition available), canoeing from Mullion Cove, coasteering, cycle hire and horse riding all within 5 miles. Mullion Golf Course is set in a spectacular cliff top location.

For family days out there is Flambards Theme Park at Helston, and the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek. Roskilly’s Farm near Coverack produce arguably the best ice cream in Cornwall!

“Great value for a short break.”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2012

We wanted an inexpensive week away with the kids on half term. We also wanted to take the dog! Sunny corner was absolutely ideal. Whilst it was fairly small, it had two bedrooms, a reasonable sized living/dining room and a bijou kitchen/shower.toilet rooms. Electricity by pay meter. great location for exploring the lovely Lizard peninsula and all its wonderful beaches and pubs!
