Getting far from the madding crowd in England can be difficult but this village hideaway on a Cornish outcrop is so remote it feels like the end of the world.
Mullion village is nestled between two rivers and guarded by stunning cliffs set in splendid isolation on the Lizard Peninsula, the British mainland’s most southerly point.
Those wanting to get to Mullion will need to plan for a five to six-hour drive if visiting from London, and it’s even two-and-a-half hours from Plymouth in nearby Devon.
Surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the settlement enjoys miles and miles of mind boosting coastal walks right on its doorstep.
Puncturing the impressive rocky coastline are two coves, Mullion Harbour and Kynance Cove, which are just a short walk from the village and give access to the bracing waters of the Atlantic.

Like many ports on the Cornish coast the harbour was once home to a bustling pilchard fishing fleet and the haven is still home to vessels, some of which now offer day trips.
For those in need of sustenance after a long day out experiencing the sea air there’s plenty of local pubs and hotels to wind down in on an evening.
One such venue, the four-star Mullion Cove Hotel, offers long-distance views that on a good day stretch all the way towards Land’s End.
Dog lovers wishing to take their canine companion with them will be in for a treat as many places accept furry visitors, and they are also welcome on Mullion Cove beach as well as along the nearby 630-mile-long South West Coast Path.

The National Trust-run Lizard Point, the most southerly point in the UK, is not far south and hosts a variety of wildlife as well as the historic Lizard Lighthouse.
Famous former residents of the remote idyll include two recipients of the Victoria Cross and somewhat bizarrely the daughter of Russian Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.
Svetlana Alliluyeva, later known as Lana Peters, spent part of her life in the remote Cornish village.
CornwallLive reports in her own words, Svetlana had become “an English derelict” and spent much of her time walking the coastal cliffs before moving to America.
