Presented in association with Trinity House, Trevose Head Lighthouse lies on a headland between sandy beaches, four miles west of Padstow. Nimbus Cottage is one of four delightful cottages on this private site, sheltered beneath the headland.
In association with Trinity House, we are proud to present Nimbus Cottage at Trevose Head Lighthouse.
Nimbus is one of four holiday cottages available at the lighthouse which is located on a headland between the sandy beaches of Harlyn and Constantine Bays, four miles west of Padstow. The Lighthouse was built in 1847, electrified in 1973 and automated in 1995. The site is not open to the public and the four cottages are sheltered beneath a headland and are 75' above the sea, accessed via a one-mile-long private road. Fine views out to sea and the chance to watch fishing boats coming in and out of Padstow.
The cottages are semi-detached, with the lighthouse positioned in the middle. At the front, there is a communal tarmac forecourt with parking. To the rear, on the sea side, there is a shared, walled, grass area which is fenced at the cliff edge. (In the interest of safety, it is recommended that guests do not use this space). The South West Coast path runs round the headland and on towards Padstow.
Also on this site is Brook Cottage, sleeping four guests, Verity Cottage, sleeping four guests and Pelorus Cottage, sleeping four guests.
Up to two-well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge).
Two travel cots and highchairs are available on request (shared between the four cottages).
The lighthouse does not have a fog signal.
Very limited mobile signal. A telephone with honesty box is provided.
Access roads to the lighthouse site are narrow with limited passing places and, dependent on the season and site, there is the possibility of overhanging vegetation due to cutting restrictions during bird breeding seasons or other environmental reasons.
Guests are reminded they are renting a heritage building, therefore certain features such as steps, stairs and floor levels may not comply with that of a modern building. As such, we would advise guests to acquaint themselves with the premises on arrival and exercise caution accordingly.
Guests should be aware that the lighthouses and equipment need regular and sometimes emergency maintenance. Therefore visits by maintenance staff may occur at any time during the year. However, staff will do their best to ensure guest privacy at all times.
Please note that although the accommodation is on the ground floor, there are internal steps and level changes within the property.
Sorry, no barbecues, fireworks, drones or remote controlled flying equipment permitted.
Given the remote locations of our cottages the Wi-Fi speed and availability cannot be guaranteed at this site The service offered is for light browsing and occasional use, services such as streaming and gaming may not be possible owing to the speeds obtainable.
Excellent cottage. Visit enhanced by a trip up the light house.
Stunning location. Clean and well equipped cottage, plus cottage had been decorated since last vist in 2021. Only negative comment (but not enough to mark down) was that the welcome hamper of previous years was pretty sparse.
Amazing. A really beautiful location
