The Bay Hotel is situated in Coverack near the Lizard Peninsula and the South West Coastal path. It is a dog friendly hotel and offers peace and tranquility with sea views. The Lizard Peninsula’s southerly aspect benefits from the gulf stream and enjoys a year long mild climate famous for its flora and fauna and many plants grow here that are not found in other parts of the British Isles. The area has a wealth of local attractions, and hosts the famous Eden Project and is also near the beautiful gardens of Trebah and Trelissick with extensive riverside walks down to the Helford Estuary and Glendurgan gardens with warm sheltered views across the Helford River, a laurel maze and many exotic flowers.
For those who prefer a more historical interest, there is the Lighthouse at Lizard Point, Minack Open Air theatre, St Michael’s Mount, believed to encompass a spiritual power at the meeting of the lay lines and the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth which transports you into a world of small boats and Cornish maritime history.
For those that seek a more active pace, wind surfing, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding,scuba diving and fishing enthusiasts are well catered for. There are also several excellent golf courses well worth a round providing you don’t get too easily distracted by the views!
There are many breath taking walks and you can join the coastal path from the foot of our drive. For those that prefer to walk in a group or to be guided www.walkitcornwall.co.uk offer informative and entertaining walks around the Lizard. We can always organise transport to the start of the walk or arrange collection.
Nearby is the bustling market town of Helston, town of the ‘furry dance’ Penzance, Truro, St Ives, home to the Tate Modern Gallery and the beautiful half-hidden villages on the banks of the Helford river.
