The Lizard village is the most southerly village on the UK Mainland. You might be surprised to know that it is actually further south than Land’s End. We often think the length of the UK is from John O’Groats to Land’s End, although this is the furthest distance, The Lizard village is about 9 miles further south. The Lizard village enjoys a much warmer climate than most of the UK. Being surrounded by the sea helps this and it has its own microclimate. In neighbouring villages it can be frosty but The Lizard village rarely sees any frost. The average winter temperatures are between 7℃ to 10℃ Once you arrive in the village, the village green is on your right hand side, park up and have a wander round. There are lots of little shops, a butcher/deli, farmshop, several cafes, takeaways and two pubs. Don't forget to check out Ann Muller’s famous “Ann’s pasties”! If you fancy a walk, head from the centre of the village towards the lighthouse and Lizard Point or you can drive down to the National Trust car park just next to the lighthouse. Lizard Point has a lovely little cove called Polpeor Cove, there are remains of the old lifeboat house and you can walk down to the cove via a steep track. Once you are there look out for the resident seals, they can often be found bobbing in the water. There are gift shops and two cafes providing fresh food, drinks and takeaway. The South West Coast Path runs along the cliffs and if you carefully look over you can see the pretty unspoilt coves. Even in a proper Cornish mizzle, the village has lots to offer. The sound of the fog horn can be quite eerie. When it’s stormy don’t miss out on a spot of storm watching from a safe distance.
