The village of Mullion sits on the dramatic western flank of the Lizard peninsula, just a short distance away from the picturesque cove bearing its name.
Meadow View is situated on the edge of Mullion – the largest village on the Lizard, with a wealth of shops, pubs, cafés and galleries. At the heart of the village stands the church of St. Mellanus, which dates back to the 13th century and is famous for its carved oak bench-ends. The timber roof was built using wood from the nearby forest that covered Goonhilly Downs in mediaeval times.
The village sits 65 metres above sea level and within strolling distance of three famous Cornish coves – Polurrian, Mullion and Poldhu. Both Mullion Cove and Poldhu Cove are owned by the National Trust, with the latter used by Guglielmo Marconi to send the world’s first ever wireless communication over open sea. Meanwhile, Mullion Cove remains a working harbour, built on the pilchard fishing industry and the underworld of smuggling. If you enjoy spending time on the beach or walking coastal paths, Mullion is the ideal place to set up residence.
The nearest town is Helston, some seven miles north of the village, while Mullion is also ideally situated for RNAS Culdrose. Closer to home, you’ll find Mullion School, which was recently ranked in the top 20% of schools in the country by a group called Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT). If golf is your thing, the nearby Mullion Golf Club provides the perfect setting, if you can take your eyes off the stunning views.
Links to the rest of the country can be found via Penzance railway station and the airports at Newquay and Exeter.
