Unique period property that was once the home of the lighthouse keeper at Eddystone Lighthouse, offers an incredible location giving you a feeling of true isolation, overlooking the sea at Penlee Point. 

The house has an open plan living area on the top floor which offers sea views from every window. Here you can relax by the multi fuel burner with a good book, pop on the TV with Freeview or a DVD and simply cosy up with your loved ones. There are also 3 bedrooms on the first floor, a master bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room, a second king size bedroom and a bunk bed room with en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom on this floor with a bath with shower over. 

Down on the ground floor you can discover the Shaker style open plan kitchen and dining room. Here you can cook up a storm and enjoy dining inside or al fresco on the terrace using the BBQ whilst taking in the beautiful sunset. This floor also has a woodburner for added cosiness! 

Locally you can enjoy many coastal walks, typical Cornish villages and try the traditional Cornish Cream Tea - jam first if you were wondering! Alternatively visit the beach at Cawsands or Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park for a step back in time at this 16th century manor house.
