Mullion - Perfectly Placed on the Lizard Peninsula

Mullion - Perfectly Placed on the Lizard Peninsula, Mullion, England (B)

The traditional Cornish village of Mullion is situated at the confluence of three small valleys that open out into three pretty coves on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall.

In spring and early summer, a riot of colourful wild flowers tumbles over the cliff tops on the coastline of the Lizard Peninsula and dip and sway on the verges of the narrow lanes that weave their way across it. It is no wonder this stunning area of Cornwall has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Mullion lies right at the heart of it.

Mullion is the best place to stay for those wishing to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Lizard Peninsula which boasts lovely, sandy beaches in sheltered coves and a huge variety of wild flowers including some that are unique to the peninsula. A large and interesting population of birds inhabit the cliffs and offshore islands and seals and basking sharks occasionally pass by. The centre of the village is a short distance inland and features a variety of local shops, restaurants and the highly recommended Ann’s Pasties a traditional dish made from local ingredients. Some interesting old buildings such as the old Post Office and the Reading Room are now in private occupation. The village has three churches, the pretty Roman Catholic Church on its perimeter, the flint stone Methodist Church and the lovely thirteenth century church of Saint Mellanus. ......
