https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kynance_Cove

Kynance Cove (CornishPorth Keynans, meaning ravine cove) is a cove on the eastern side of Mount’s BayCornwall, England. It is situated on the Lizard peninsula approximately two miles (3 km) north of Lizard Point.[1] The cove became popular in the early Victorian era, with many distinguished visitors including Queen Victoria and Prince Albert[2] and the poet Alfred Tennyson.[3] The BBC has described Kynance Cove as “one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South West”.[4] The South West Coast Path, which follows the coast of south west England from Somerset to Dorset passes by on the cliffs overlooking the cove.[1]

Kynance Cove and the surrounding coast are owned and managed by the National Trust. It is part of the West Lizard Site of Special Scientific Interest and is in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Kynance Café, which opened for business in 1929, relied on spring water and on a generator for power. When the café became the property of the National Trust in 1999, the Trust renovated it and provided mains water and electricity. Access is via the South-west coastal footpath from the nearby National Trust car park
