Perched on the cliffs amidst 12 acres of gardens on the stunning Lizard Peninsula on the east Cornish coast, this luxury family seaside hotel has gorgeous views and direct access to a small, sandy beach.

The hotel welcomes families with open arms, providing a choice of family rooms and also the option of self-catering accommodation in its cottage and villas. Knowing many families want their pets to enjoy a staycation too, the hotel also makes well-behaved dogs welcome (a small charge applies). 

During school holidays, the hotel offers a programme of fun activities for families to enjoy together. For the more adventurous, they have partnered up with the local company, Lizard Adventure, to offer a range of adrenaline-fueled water-based activities - ranging from coasteering to kayaking.
