Hubby brought me down to the Lizard for a birthday surprise weekend. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and settled into our accommodation, where our hosts recommended the Top House.

We stayed at the Top House Inn for one night while walking the South West Coastal Path. We had quite a large room with good sized en suite. Breakfast was good and plentiful. We would recommend the Top House to anyone walking the path, or just visiting the area on holiday or business.

The place was great and the food was amazing, be brave, try the local Cornish hogs pudding for breakfast. Tastes way better than it sounds ! All my meals there... More
