    In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Lizard Lighthouse. Located on the Southern-most tip of mainland Britain, the six adjacent cottages of Lizard Lighthouse present guests with dazzling scenery and coastal walks right on the doorstep. Rare and beautiful flora and fauna make this cliff top location particularly special. The nearby Lizard Village provides shops, restaurants and a friendly pub only a short ¼ mile distance away.
    Lizard Lighthouse is a fully working lighthouse, first established in 1619. The distinctive two white towers that it is known for today were built in 1751 by private entrepreneur Thomas Fonnereau, and first lit on 22 August that year. Trinity House gained control of the lights in 1771 and continues to look after its operation to this day. It became electrified in 1924 and then fully automated in 1998. It has a 26 mile light range and an automatic 3 mile fog signal if conditions are misty.The site is open to the public for lighthouse tours but the privacy of guests staying at the cottages is not normally affected.

    "Excellent location, clean and well kept with lovely surroundings"

    "Really lovely cottage and the West Tower was a real treat. We had a very atmospheric Christmas dinner with the wind booming around the tower and the floor vibrating below us. Makes you appreciate why lighthouses are there in the first place! The only disappointment during our stay was the kitchen, which was poorly equipped. There were only 4 teaspoons and it lacked utensils like kitchen scissors, roasting dishes and casseroles. We only threw our roasting pan into the boot as an emergency but would have been stumped without it on Christmas Day. There were no waste paper baskets in any of the rooms either which was a nuisance; sweet wrappers, tissues, make up remover pads etc all had to be stored up and carried to the kitchen. So it was the little things that irritated.However overall we had a memorable Christmas there and that was really what mattered."

    "Just a few minor issues, particularly need bathroom upstairs and another frying pan"

    "A superb location and excellent accommodation but a couple of minor glitches. The two steps from the ground floor bedroom and bathrooms were difficult for me. The first had a narrow tread - not wide enough to put my foot flat, The second one was onto the door frame, so not flat and there was no hand/grab rail. Some of the dishes were too big to fit into the dishwasher - the wine glasses and some of the dinner plates which obstructed the arm distributing the water."

    "Not as nicely decorated or interior designed as the other lighthouse cottages in the South West we have stayed in - and we have stayed in all of them frequently over the past 13 years! The living room is particularly grim and uninviting- so much so that we didn't sit in there. The sofa is a bright blue colour, there is a rug of another colour completely that looks as though it's been taken from another property altogether. Nothing matches in the room and it feels cold and not comfortable. There are no nice touches eg themed framed prints and lamps and the room really lets the cottage down. Likewise the upstairs bedrooms have a more utilitarian feel than all the other lighthouse cottages we stay in eg thin short curtains, magnolia walls. Basically there are nice elements to this cottage but overall it doesn't seem to have had any professional design interior design input, that make your usual cottages special places. They have a 4 star hotel feel and this is lacking in places at Wolf Rock. It may seem like a small point but its one of the main reasons we always book with Rural Retreats."
