House | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

An historic building steeped in local folk lore. A beautifully appointed and stylish interior. Set in a beautiful location with stunning sea views. A truly unique and romantic holiday hideaway - All understatements when trying to accurately describe this truly enchanting little property! Renovated to a very comfortable standard, The Old Rocket and Pump House nestles on the edge of this much sought after and picturesque little fishing cove. Dating back to the early 1800's, this fabulous little bolt hole was formerly the pump house that supplied well water to the adjoining coastguard cottages. It was also used to house the rockets which were fired to secure lines for the Breaches Buoys when coastguards attempted the dangerous transfer of sailors from the unfortunate vessels that foundered on the treacherous rocks and coves around the Land's End peninsula.

Situated just yards from the coastal path and two minutes from the little harbour, shop, cafe and lifeboat station, The Old Rocket and Pump House is literally a cottage for all seasons. Whether you are sitting on the bench outside of the property watching a glorious summer sunset or sitting in front of the crackling wood burning stove whilst a winter gale screeches in from the Atlantic, this captivating little haven will certainly not disappoint but be warned , you will want to return so book early!
