Mike, Liz and Abi would love to welcome you to Little Trethvas. We are passionate about the Lizard peninsular and Cornwall in general. We will do all we can to ensure you have a great holiday.We holidayed here for 20 years before moving to Little Trethvas so we know the places and experiences you should not miss.
There is wonderful rambling for the walkers .Walks to Kynance,Mullion ,Cadgwith and the Lizard village start from the campsite so no need to drive.
Cycle down the pretty lanes to Cadgwith or go off for the day across the peninsular.Off road across the Lizard and Goonhilly downs.
the many beaches nearby offer surfing and very safe seaside experiences for younger children.
Where do we start! Pasties are made locally, cream teas ,fish and chips, reasonably priced pub food and for the foodies among you the wondeful eateries serving the locally caught fish.
If you feel like messing about on the Helford river, you can hire day boats or go on an organised trip from Helford village and St Anthony.
Catch your own either from the rocky headland or book a trip on a local fishing boat.Bring it home and cook on the barbi.
On the other side of the Helford river are Glendurgan and Trebah gardens.both of these have their own beaches so remember to take your cossie.
The Lizard really is a wonderful place to visit over the Christmas break. Cadgwith, Coverack and Porthlevan all have fantastic light displays over and around the bays and harbours. We have a cosy cottage and a warm static caravan for winter breaks incase you are not a winter camper!
Lots of the local pubs do a festive dinner but book early..
If you must leave the Lizard, you’ll find Falmouth, St Ives, Truro and Lands End are all within easy reach.
The Lizard peninsular is unique in its geology and botany so get your wild flower books out and spend some time on the south west coastal path.You may also see the seals and the basking sharks that frequent this coast.
We could go on forever singing the praises of The Lizard but we want to tell you more ourselves.
