One of the most stunning headland settings in cornwall at penlee point, near cawsand

1 The Old Signal House is one of three adjoining cottages that was once The Old Signal House, formerly a Trinity Lighthouse Service Signal Station built at the turn of the last century to house the families of the light house keepers at Eddystone Lighthouse.

Situated in splendid isolation on the headland at Penlee Point, the house is reached by a private woodland lane in the Mount Edgcumbe Estate, where there is a private parking. The house itself is then a further 82 steps down onto the headland, sitting just above the rocks and adjacent sandy beach, with the most amazing sea views.

Rame Head is a delightful half hour walk away along the coastal path. The twin villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are walking distance and have several foodie pubs.

There is a seasonal ferry from Cawsand beach into the heart of Plymouth. The three mile surfing beach of Whitsand Bay is a short distance away.

"Beautiful beyond belief. House amazing, clean and well equipped. Beds are so comfy. Views are to die for. This house is a gem." Tina, Jason and family August 2020.

"Our first time in Cornwall and we just loved it here. The house, the ships, the views, the forest, the beach, the sunny weather, the rocks. We even discovered a nice cave in the rocks under the house. We loved it here. Thank you."  The Bakker family August 2020.

"The most beautiful place we have ever been to - thanks!"  Holger and family July 2020

Amazing home in a spectacular location. This place really has the wow factor in terms of views and who knew there was so much activity on the waterways.

We have just returned from a week’s break at The Old Signal House and thought it was wonderful. The house is great, it is very modern inside, decorated and furnished to a high standard and very clean. It was really comfortable with plenty of room. The views of the sea are truly amazing, we spent lots of time enjoying seeing the boats passing by. It really felt a special place.
