About this property

Set in an isolated position on Penlee Point, The Old Signal House is a stunning period property overlooking the sea and offers guests a unique break on a very special piece of the Cornish coastline.

Originally built as a home for the staff and families who manned the Eddystone Lighthouse, this three-bedroom apartment is arranged over two floors, with an open plan living area occupying the upper level. Beautifully furnished, with a bright and airy atmosphere throughout, the lounge has a multi-fuel burner and boasts sea views from nearly every angle, making it the perfect place to watch the changing moods of ocean.

The lovely Shaker style kitchen which is open plan with the dining room, has plenty of worktop space and is equipped with modern, integrated appliances and a range of utensils and crockery. Further wonderful views make cooking and entertaining a pleasure, and for those glorious summery evenings there’s a furnished front terrace where guests can enjoy a refreshment or two while taking in the ocean panoramas towards Plymouth Sound.

Surrounded by unspoiled countryside and wide sea views, it’s unsurprising that there are many wonderful walks in the area, the best of which is the 5-mile circular route along the coast path which passes right by the property’s front door. This stunning section of the South West Coast Path takes in the wild beauty of Rame Peninsula’s position in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty with woodland and wildflowers to enjoy, as well as sandy bays and the historic villages of Kingsand and Cawsand.

Of course if you’d like to spend time on the beach during your stay, you’ll also have plenty of beautiful sandy stretches to choose from including Penlee Point Beach (just a short scramble along the path), Cawsand Bay and Kingsand Bay, and Whitsand Bay which at low tide sprawls for 4 shimmering miles.

A seasonal ferry from nearby Cawsand transports visitors to the Barbican in Plymouth during the summer months so for those who fancy a spot of shopping and culture this is a great way to spend the day. The trip takes about half an hour and the Barbican is a fun spot for all the family, with a range of bars and cafes and a small museum about the US Pilgrim’s Mayflower voyage. Plymouth itself offers a huge range of activities too, including the national marine aquarium, museums and art galleries, climbing walls, theatres and the Drake Centre shopping centre.
