The property

Rocket Cart House is a beautifully presented, granite cottage situated in the southernly village of Lizard, Cornwall.

Dating back to 1869, this tiny building used to store the cart and rocket lifesaving equipment for the lifeboat crew on the Lizard.

Now a converted dwelling, it offers a romantic bolthole for couples wanting to explore South Cornwall.

The craftsmanship of the interior should be appreciated, featuring exposed beams and stylish touches throughout, creating a heart-warming base to return to each evening.

Get the woodburning stove fire up as you sink into the sumptuous velvet sofa, taking a moment to relax following a day of coastal rambles.

The kitchen has a fantastic use of space, housing an electric combi-oven/microwave and induction hob, fridge, dishwasher and washer/dryer, ensuring you are fully catered for.

Preparing a light dinner here will be no trouble however, a 3 minute walk down the lane or into the Village provides a multitude of choices ranging from fine dining with Atlantic views to delicious locally sourced takeaways.

After dinner, look forward to curling up in the delightful bedroom, presented with stylish hanging storage baskets, a timber clad backwall and open beams into the roof space to view the stars.

The en-suite shower room continues to exude style, featuring a slate floor, walk-in shower enclosure, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

When the weathers nice, throw open the patio doors and access the pretty courtyard, the perfect spot for a well-deserved gin and tonic or local Lizard Ale.

Wander into the centre of the village, home to a selection of eateries and pubs, as well as a farmer's shop and Deli where you can pick up the essentials.

Famed for being the most southerly point of the British mainland, the Lizard Peninsula offers a beautiful coastline filled with pretty coves, little shipwrecks and gorgeous bays and beaches.

It also has one of the UK’s warmest climates, meaning you’ll have even more opportunity to enjoy sunshine long coastal walks and beach days, particularly at Kynance Cove, where you can see one of the most photographed and painted locations in Cornwall.

If exploration takes you further afield, visit the iconic Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west, or spend an afternoon wandering the streets of Falmouth, home to many unique shops and fascination attractions and a rich maritime history.

Surrounded by glorious scenery, Rocket Cart House promises to be an excellent base for touring Cornwall, walking the South west Path and bird watching.
