One of the most stunning headland settings in the UK at Penlee Point, near Cawsand in Cornwall

Tour 360


The Old Signal House is the southern and largest part of the Trinity Lighthouse building which was originally used to service the Eddystone Lighthouse, seven miles offshore.

Situated in splendid isolation on the headland at Penlee Point, the house is reached by its own one mile drive through the woodland of the Mount Edgcumbe Estate to a private car park. The house is at the foot of 70 steps just above the rocks with the most amazing sea views. A delightful sandy beach is adjacent to the house along a private path.

Rame Head is a delightful half hour walk along the coastal path. The twin seaside villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are walking distance with their popular beaches and eateries.

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.

Fantastic week staying at this unique property. We had high hopes for amazing views and pleased to say we were not disappointed. The property was of a very high standard and equipped with everything we needed. Excellent standard throughout. Beds comfortable with quality linen.
