About the neighbourhood
The Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall, England's most southerly point is a secret back water - almost an island, girded on three sides by the sea and the fourth by the meandering waters of the Helford river, only a tiny land bridge connecting us to the rest of Cornwall.

Freshwater lakes, open heathland, fabulously hued Serpentine rock outcrops and gardens full of sub-tropical plants warmed by the Gulf Stream. We are only a few miles from the most southerly point at The Lizard. Ruan Major is a small hamlet,and quiet even in the peak season, yet we are just a few minutes one of the finest beaches in Cornwall, Kynanc...
