Cornwall National Landscape

All of the Lizard falls within the South Coast Western section of the Cornwall National Landscape (previously Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The National Landscape is one single protected area, split up into twelve separate parts. These make up the very best of Cornwall, and cover an area of 958 sq km or 370 sq miles – well over a quarter of the county. It is one of 46 National Landscapes in the UK and was designated in 1959.

National Landscapes, along with National Parks, represent the most outstanding examples of countryside in England and Wales. Importantly, they have the same status and protection as a National Park. The Cornwall National Landscape is managed by a partnership of fifteen organisations supported by a small team of professionals.
