Sally Port Cottage is listed in affiliation with Rural Retreats.
Sally Port Cottage is a single dwelling, reached via a 300-metre steep tarmac path leading down to the rocks from the headland above, where the car park is situated. The accommodation is totally private with no public access. The Lighthouse, for those of you who remember, was the location for 'Fraggle Rock' (the children's television programme which was shown some years ago).
Inside is a cosy living room with a TV and DVD player, and a separate kitchen that comes fully equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. There are also two bright, comfortable bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and one separate bathroom.
There is also a separate observation room, which has a large picture window and is furnished with a table and chairs, and an electric wood-effect stove so that you can be snug whilst watching the worst of any storms. And outside there is a glorious sun-trap patio that’s perfect for having your morning coffee overlooking the sea, and there’s space for everyone to sit and eat together.
From this location you’re within close proximity of the historic town of Truro, the capital of Cornwall. Enjoy a day visiting The Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan, both nearby. In season, a ferry boat operating regularly during the day between St Mawes and Falmouth where the National Maritime Museum is located is well worth a visit. The restaurant at The Driftwood Hotel in Portscatho comes with a Michelin star and is highly recommended for dinner, or take afternoon tea at the Tresanton Hotel in nearby St Mawes or go for the Fish and Chips Night (Friday) at the 'Rising Sun', the choice is yours. The surrounding National Trust land has wonderful walks and a bird hide, which is a 10-minute walk away, from here you can watch peregrine falcons nest, along with many other heathland and coastal birds.
