The Old Signal House

Experience staying in one of the most stunning headland settings in the UK.

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 82 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.
