Longships is a charming cottage that sits beneath the Lizard Lighthouse. Inside this four-person holiday home has two bedrooms, a double and a twin. Both rooms have rustic wooden floors, and offer guests lovely sea views, the perfect accompaniment to your morning cuppa in bed.
The living room has an open fireplace, giving you somewhere comfy to sit and cosy up with a book in the colder months. There's also a pretty dining area, that's ideal for groups of four, offering yet more amazing sea views. The fully functional kitchen is ideal for those looking to cook up a storm and comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and a microwave.
Rare and beautiful flora and fauna make this cliff top location particularly special, so be sure to head out for a wander and soak up the sunshine whilst breathing in that marvellous sea air. 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.
