The Lizard Peninsula, lying in the extreme south-west of the United Kingdom is an isolated, rural area. With the sea on three sides and the Helford River to the north the Lizard Peninsula is almost an island - a high plateau surrounded by sea and studded with numerous coves and beaches.
There are no towns, just
a collection of scattered coastal and inland villages. Most of the peninsula
has been declared as a site of special scientific interest or is owned
by the National Trust and as a result it has remained mostly unchanged
