Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula


We have been staying on Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula for a break. One of our walks started from the the Peninsula's largest village of St. Mullian. The Old Inn above dates back to the 16th Century and the church below has parts dating back to the 13th Century.

We simply walked along the road, out of the village not knowing where we would end up.

The fields were green and the sun was shining.

We soon reached Pondhu beach with its Beach Cafe. 

A few people were enjoying the food on the outside wooden tables.

More diners  below, but the building, seen in the distance on the cliffs, is a bit special - it is Marconi's Wireless Station On the12th of December, 1901 Marconi sent his message from Poldhu to Newfoundland

Now walking on the damp sand at the beach

Not too sure what was happening here.

A Pondhu wooden sign 

Oh, and a bus stop. So we could have had a ride to and from Pondhu Beach.

We still preferred to walk. The Old Inn again.

Also within reach from Mullian, where we started our walk, is the peaceful Mullian Cove, below. 

That's all for today. Hopefully more posts on the Lizard Peninsula will follow.

Thanks for visiting my blog ~ Mike.


  1. Hi Mik, pleased to hear you been able to get away for a break. You had good weather and the photo's reflect this, I particularly liked the last one of the red boat. David

  2. Hello David. Thanks, yes we were lucky with the weather. Since we returned there has been lots of rain. The red boat cove has a lovely old harbour.

  3. I remember commenting on that red boat with the name Flamingo in a previous post of yours Mike.
    And The Old Inn sure looks inviting to me.

  4. A beautiful set of photos. No wonder Cornwall is so popular. It’s so pretty in the sunshine.
