This comfortable cottage is situated on the Pendeen Lighthouse site, on a majestic granite headland. It provides a hall, sitting room, kitchen with dining table, bathroom, double bedroom and twin bedroom.

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Solebay Cottage at Pendeen Lighthouse.

Solebay is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse and has a dramatic location on a granite headland on the North Cornwall Coast within a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South West Coast path passes round the headland, passing through part of Cornwall's oldest mining areas. The lighthouse lies six miles north of Land's End and two miles from St Just. The lighthouse was established in 1900, electrified in 1926 and automated in 1994.

You may be lucky enough to spot seals on the rocks below the lighthouse headland, as well as a variety of seabirds. With banks of seasonal pink thrift and golden gorse, the headland is a perfect location to watch the sun setting over the Atlantic.
