Pelorus Cottage, nr Padstow, Cornwall
near Padstow, Cornwall
This fantastic holiday cottage is located in a unique position on the site of an operational lighthouse four miles west of the town of Padstow in Cornwall, between the sandy beachs of Harlyn Bay and Constantine Bay. Sleeping 4 guests, it's perfect for a unique seaside getaway.
Pelorus Cottage is one of four holiday properties situated beneath a lighthouse which sits four miles from Padstow in Cornwall, on a private site at the end of a mile-long road which is not open to the public. The cottages overlook the sea, sitting 75ft above the water, and see shelter from a headland. The lighthouse was built in 1847, electrified in 1973, and finally automated in 1995. A stay here offers superb sea views, including the fishing boats leaving and returning to 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.

The lighthouse does not have a fog signal — so no loud sounds to disturb you!
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.
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.
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.
