Lizard Point is the most southerly tip of mainland UK, part of the stunning Cornish coastline and we'll be staying next to the lighthouse in this beautifully converted Victorian hotel (now 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: The traditional ODL buffet dinner, welcome meeting and If you bring some sparkling wine we can make some bubbly cocktails.

Saturday daytime: We'll be heading out for a full day's walk around the stunning coast. There will be walks suitable for all abilities, depending on leader availability and we will aim to have both an easier and a harder option. Or bring your bike and head out to explore the rolling Cornish coast, grab a board and go surfing or even go for a wander and explore the museum, local cafes and National Trust offerings. 

Saturday night: We will be cooking you up a delicious meal to reward a good day out on the coast. We will have games or maybe even a quiz. Plus, for cocktail lovers, we could make some fun Easter cocktails together. Contributions for this optional activity will be arranged nearer the date.

Easter Sunday daytime: Depending on leaders we can either put on another walk or use this day to do our own things, exploring local National Trust places, wandering the beach or maybe even go for a trip to the Eden Project. 

Easter Sunday night: We will exchange our Easter eggs, before diving into a great three course Easter roast dinner.

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.

Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.
