  • "Parc An Castle Cottage is a fantastic place to stay while in Lizard."

    Every window has a view and terrace is facing towards Lizard Point! It's spacious, clean, well equipped, comfortable. Be aware that there is no in-house WiFi but who needs it part from planning you next walk :) Lizard is my new love: costal walks, swimming in scenic coves, crabs and cider

  • "Parc An Castle is a landmark building in a beautiful and peaceful location close to the South Coast path, with sea views from nearly every window."

    The welcome from Miss Hart is warm, and the accommodation is simple and traditional, comfortable and clean. Lizard village (about 5 minutes walk) has a great pub, fish and chip shop, cafes and farm shops, and (plant) nursery, as well as a lot of shops selling fantastic Cornish ice cream! My family has been coming back here for many years and have great affection for the place.

  • "Read reviews that this property needs modernising, I think absolutely not."

    It’s old fashioned for a reason that suits the property. The main part was that it was clean, comfortable and everything you needed was in there. My highlight was the views from the rear of the property, can’t put a price on that.

  • "Loved the location and the Cottage,an absolute time capsule,do not change anything,from the 115 year old pictures on the walls by past family members of the owner,and a property built by the Great Grandad of the owner it gives an insight into a bygone age where continuity was the essence."

    Miss Hart was lovely and the whole property is a credit to her and her family.

  • "A wonderful location with marvellous views."

    However our stay felt like a visit back in time, with the very dated kitchen, bathroom furnishings and decor. Some updating generally would make this a fantastic property to stay in.

  • "Parc an Castle is accurately described by Helpful Holidays."

    It is not a five star holiday cottage and is somewhat dated but it was clean, warm and comfortable and well equipped. It is in a superb location, private and with great views. You can walk from the property to the coast path and we did various circular walks in both directions. Lizard Village is a short walk with plenty of choice of eating places etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay and would recommend but read the description and don’t book if you are expecting a top notch five star property.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay and had a fantastic week in Lizard."

    The location for the property is stunning and the hosts Liz (Lottie and the rabbits) we very welcoming. The accomodation is clean and comfortable, we really liked the sense of history and stepping back in time. I would have appreciated a washing machine, however we did get by with hand washing and using the spinner. I would recommend for a relaxed and enjoyable getaway.

  • "I visited Parc an Castle with my son for about the 30th year!"

    Sadly, I lost my wife 2 years ago who loved staying there and so I have many happy memories of the cottage. Elizabeth Hart has made some improvements since II last stayed there 2 years ago, the virus stopped me last year. As I have told friends, it is not luxurious, which I would not want, but very comfortable and clean and a superb location, hence my repeat visits! Regards. Ian Challen

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay af Parc an Castle."

    The views from this cottage annex are amazing! We loved the peace and quiet despite being a short walk from the Lizard Point and Village. The accomodation is so spacious and very well equiped - the photos don't do it justice. We were so fortunate to be able to bring our dogs with us to enjoy the wonderful coastal walks and surrounding fields. Alas I believe the accomodation is no longer dog friendly which sadly prevents us from planning a return trip.

  • "We had a lovely week at Parc an Castle cottage, it is basic but we were aware of this and were going for the views and to an area that we knew well."

    We were not disappointed, the views were amazing from nearly every window and I happily sat for hours at the lounge window looking out to sea. Despite being in the middle of global pandemic we felt very safe here, there are lovely coastal walks straight from your front door and it is very peaceful and private for a relaxing holiday. The owner lives on site and is very friendly and helpful. The decor of the cottage could do with being updated in places but the beds were comfortable and we'd happily return, those views and sunsets are to die for!!⁶

    The shower is very temperamental and goes hot and cold while your in it and the hot water is very limited only one person could use the bath before it ran out which made it difficult with not being able to use the shower well

    The sea views at Parc an Castle are second to none and it's a great base for a short break.

The property

This cottage with sea views is one mile from spectacular Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula.

Built around a courtyard with south-facing sea views, this ground floor annex is adjoined to the owners own home, ideal for family, friends and couples looking for basic accommodation.

There is a separate sitting room with a beamed ceiling and brick built fireplace, dining room and kitchen, plus two comfy bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Situated within sight of the most southerly part of England and surrounded by its own 2 acres of farmland, some of which is lawn garden, makes this a most peaceful and interesting place to spend a leisurely holiday and ensures tremendous freedom for children.

It is only 100 yards from the coastal path and secluded coves, and one mile from the beach.

Coves and beaches on The Lizard Peninsula are within a short drive making Parc An Castle an ideal retreat for coastal and countryside adventures.

About the location


Cadgwith 3.5 miles ; Mullion 5 miles ; Helston 11 miles

The most southerly town in Britain, The Lizard is located right at the tip of the Lizard Peninsula. The town has a welcoming community, lovely village green, parish church, lifeboat station, and a small selection of shops, galleries and inns. There is also an excellent pasty shop and the Lizard lighthouse, which has sat proudly atop the cliffs since 1751. Look out to sea from the lighthouse and you will see the Man ‘o War rocks – often completely submerged, these rocks have been the cause of many shipwrecks over the centuries. The Lizard Peninsula is unique in its geology, and visitors can take home some local Serpentine rock in the form of ornaments and gifts. The Lizard makes a great base for exploring the rest of the Lizard Peninsula, and is particularly popular with walkers and nature enthusiasts; the Cornish Chough now breeds in the area.
