Mullion

 

Mullion holidays

Famous for its history of smuggling, Mullion is the largest village on the Lizard, with a working harbour and the 15th century church of St Mellanus. This traditional Cornish village is perfect for a relaxing holiday for families or couples alike. Visitors can experience the village lifestyle; pop to the shops for some local produce, purchase cake from the independent cafes and enjoy a drink at the village pub. Additionally, it's a great base for those looking to explore the beautiful scenery on The Lizard. Walk along the South West Coast Path and be treated to some of the best views in Cornwall. 

Whilst Mullion is a relatively small village, there’s plenty to do during your holiday. As well as the facilities within the village itself, visitors can pop to the local craft centre, visit one of the nearby beaches, enjoy a round of golf or go kayaking from the harbour.

Things to do

Chocolate Factory and Craft Centre:

Just above Mullion Cove, you’ll find the Chocolate Factory and Craft Centre. An absolute must if you are staying in Mullion. Home to Trenance Chocolate, you can watch the chocolate being made and choose your favourites from the shop. 

The centre also has a selection of lovely shops selling a range of locally made, eco-friednly products and gifts, including skin care products, candles and craft gifts. You can also try your hand at making your own glass artwork at the Mullion Glass Studio and Workshop with Zoe Schoning. 

Before leaving the Craft Centre be sure to visit its resident llamas behind the car park. 

Mullion Golf Course:

With breathtaking views across the ocean, Mullion Golf Course must be one of the most desirable courses to play golf. The 18-hole course boasts fabulous views throughout, and the 11th tee is uniquely situated on the cliff edge. 

Kayaking:

Mullion Cove is the perfect spot for going kayaking. Head out from the cove to explore hidden bays and caves, seeing the coast from a different perspective. If you’re lucky, you may even see seals on your adventure! Book your trip with www.lizardadventure.co.uk 

Beaches

Mullion Cove Beach:

Mullion Cove Beach is a small, sheltered cove next to the historic lifeboat station, with a further sandy stretch, accessible at low tide, just around the corner from the harbour. The beach and harbour are owned and looked after by the National Trust. Parking is available at the harbour, along with toilets and a café. Dogs are welcome all year round but the beach is not lifeguarded. 

Pollurian Beach:

Pollurian beach is a beautiful west-facing, sandy beach which is partly sheltered by the high cliffs that flank the beach. Though difficult to get to, the beach is popular with locals and visitors alike, and surfers when the swell is good. There is no parking at the beach, so it’s best to park at Mullion and walk the coastal path to the reach the beach. Dogs are welcome outside of the summer season, while lifeguards are present at weekends only, during the summer season.

Poldhu Cove:

Popular with the locals for its café with famous hot chocolates, Poldhu Cove is a wonderful beach for families, also owned by the National Trust. Children can enjoy safely playing in the stream that leads to the sea at this sheltered beach. Visitors can make the most of the facilities available, including a café, surf school and toilets. Lifeguards are present during the summer months. 

Walks

There are plenty of places to walk on the Lizard Peninsula, offering the chance to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Most notably is the South West Coast Path, which weaves itself around the edge of the Peninsula. Ramble along the coast path and you’ll be amazed by the breathtaking views and unforgettable scenery.
