In association with Trinity House, we are pleased to present Sally Port Cottage at St Anthony’s Lighthouse, situated at the furthest point of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.
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 Lighthouse, for those of you who remember, was the location for ‘Fraggle Rock’ (the children’s television programme, shown some years ago).
The accommodation is totally private with no public access. There is an observation room, which has a large picture window and is furnished with table and chairs, and an electric wood-effect stove so that you can be snug whilst watching the worst of any storms.
A little more about this place
Ideal for a romantic retreat, with observation room (detached from the property) with large windows overlooking fantastic sea views.
This cottage is within easy reach of a beach.
Two bedrooms, one en-suite shower room and one bathroom.
A sun-trap patio area.
This is an operational lighthouse with an automatic electronic fog signal. During occasional periods of fog and mist, ear plugs are provided for your comfort.
Our third visit and five nights this time! We love the solitude and spend most of our days just staring out at the sea. Amazing wildlife sightings which I have listed in the blue wildlife book. Mixed weather but one day warm enough to sit outside all day.

Sally Port Cottage is perfect for romantic weekend or short holidays. The property is beautiful. The cottage is fully equipped, the welcome basket was a very pleasant surprise. We enjoyed our stay enormously.

In close proximity is the historic town of Truro, the capital of Cornwall.
Enjoy a day visiting The Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
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.
Afternoon tea at the Tresanton Hotel in nearby St Mawes is recommended, as is the Fish and Chips Night (Friday) at the ‘Rising Sun’.
The surrounding National Trust land has wonderful walks and a bird hide, which is a 10-minute walk away, from where you can watch peregrine falcons nest, along with many other heathland and coastal birds.
