Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

180 degrees of uninterrupted breathtaking views over the entire Land's End peninsula and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, a grandstand view of a spectacular weekly fireworks display during the summer months and oh! Just in case you need it - the use of your own helipad in the garden! Just some of the fabulous benefits on offer when you book Lighthouse Cottage in Sennen Cove. Formerly owned by Trinity House, this pretty and gorgeous little cottage sits in a row of four similar properties which are perched right on the very top of the cliffs with undoubtedly one of the finest sea views anywhere in the UK. The cottages were the former home to the families of the lighthouse keepers who manned the Longships Lighthouse which sits just two kilometres offshore. The lighthouse was automated in 1988 however prior to that the Trinity Cottages were a hive of activity with the helicopter making frequent journeys out to the lighthouse depositing men and supplies to maintain the all important light. Apparently the women folk would stand in the front garden of the cottages and signal their loved ones with Semaphore flags on a regular basis – this is the reason why the frame of the door at the base of the lighthouse is still painted white to this day so that the reply flags from the men would stand out and be seen by their loved ones! Today, the cottage has been completely updated by the current owners and is beautifully appointed and decorated throughout with every possible modern convenience available. Apart from the stunning sea views from almost every window, the cottage also benefits from full central heating, a baby wood burning stove in the lounge for those cosy winter evenings and an external shower room to the rear of the cottage which is ideal when you come straight from the beach after a long day surfing! During the summer months only there is a spectacular fireworks display held once a week at Lands End which can be viewed from the comfort of your lounge or outside sitting on the garden furniture! In fact, at night, it is possible to sit under a carpet of stars and view seven light houses from the cottage which are located in a fourteen mile stretch of coastline running from East to West. Lighthouse Cottage is a real gem of a property that will certainly not disappoint and one that you will want to return to time and time again. The cottage is but a short walk down to the cove and fabulous beach with all of the local amenities including the Old Success pub, The Beach restaurant and shop etc.
