About this Pub Accommodation

The Top House has been offering accommodation to travellers to Lizard Village for over 200 years and is well placed in the centre of the Lizard Village, the most southerly point in Britain. Our 8 en-suite rooms are located in a 3 storey building to the rear of the pub which has it's own entrance, as well as being accessible from the pub itself.

Our rooms are decorated in a clean, contemporary style and some of the views need to be seen to be believed. People come from all over the world to enjoy the beautiful and dramatic Cornwall coast. Beaches, surfing, coastal walking, climbing, caving and water sports plus gentler activities like painting and photography, can all be done within the area.

Whether you wish to "night stop" while passing through, or set up as a "base" to explore the surrounding coastline you will be extended a warm welcome and we will guarantee you a comfortable stay.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

We offer 8 superb en-suite rooms (4 double, 2 twin and 2 family), some of which offer spectacular views. Our B&B accommodation was subject to refurbishment in 2007 and is decorated in a clean and contemporary style. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities as well as a TV and freeview box.

Rooms are located in a 3 storey building to the rear of the Inn which has it's own front door accessed from our patio garden. There is also direct access from the B&B to the bar and restaurant areas. The family rooms have a king sized bed and a set of bunk beds, ideal for parents and children to share a room.


We offer a great breakfast to start your day and at the end of it why not join us for a lovely dinner in the bar or restaurant areas. When the weather is fine you can also enjoy our patio garden, or on cooler evenings settle in front of our log fire. We have free wi-fi for our customers to use. We have a great selection of beers and wines as well as offering great Lavazza coffee, cream teas and hot chocolate. The Top House is just a great place to eat, drink and stay!

Other Things to Note

Strictly no smoking, and unfortunately we cannot accommodate pets in the guest bedrooms. Due to the nature of the building, our inn may be unsuitable for people with mobility difficulties.

Check in from 3.30pm, and check out by 10.30am. A deposit of the cost of the first nights stay is required in order to secure your booking. 


During peak season we operate a minimum 2 night stay for advance bookings. We will however take 1 night bookings on the day if we have availability.
