PLEASE NOTE: Arrival time is from 17:00 (just saying this in case of any summer time difference confusion)
Lizard Point is the most southerly tip of mainland UK and we'll be staying next to the lighthouse in this beautifully converted hostel for a Cornish Easter weekend to remember.
Dramatic cliffs, wild flowers and hidden coves characterise this gorgeous landscape, surrounded by the waves on three sides. Marconi's historic wireless experiments are celebrated at the Lizard Wireless Station and the Marconi Centre at Poldhu. Two miles north lies Kyance Cove, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the iconic Land's End is just an hour drive from here.
What's going to happen?
Good Friday night: Buffet tea, welcome meeting and If you bring some sparkling wine I will be making some bubbly cocktails.
Saturday daytime: We'll be heading out for a full day's hiking around the stunning coast. There will be walks suitable for all abilities, with both an easier and a harder option.
Saturday night: Relax, socialise & chill out. Dinner is included in the event price. For cocktail lovers, we will make some fun easter cocktails together. Contributions for this optional activity will be arranged nearer the date.
Easter Sunday daytime: We'll be heading out for another walk or other activity - this may include a trip to the Eden Project.
Easter Sunday night: We will exchange our Easter gifts, relax, socialise & chill out. Dinner will be provided.
Easter Monday daytime: You are either free to go home or join in a shorter, more leisurely walk or other activity. There may be an opportunity for a pub lunch as well, before people head home and do the ironing.
