Windmill Farm

A mosaic of habitats that make for a fantastic wildlife walk

Climb the spiral stairs of the windmill tower and views of this part of The Lizard open up before you. On the ground, there are walking trails that take you through heathland, arable fields to wetlands and ponds where you can watch birds from a number of hides.
