    This property is 5 star . From the minute you walk in the door you feel relaxed . Tastefully and comfortably furnished throughout,including a fully equipped kitchen. The welcome basket which amongst other items includes clotted cream scones is a welcome treat and the doggy treats were very well received by our two. The peace and quiet and amazing views make for a very relaxing holiday, breakfast on the balcony is the perfect start to the day , the coastal walks are lovely with the dogs and with 3 teenagers gave us some quality family time. When the tide is out there is a lovely little beach just a short walk from the property. The villages of Cawsand and Kingsand are also a pleasant walk through the woodland and the village of Millbrook a short drive for groceries and can highly recommend the fish and chip shop. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return. I can't recommend this stunning property enough it really is as good as it sounds.

The property

Situated in possibly the best and most unique location on the Rame peninsula, this former Trinity House fog signal building is a true hidden gem.

Private and secluded, this fabulous period property was built to house the families of staff manning nearby Eddystone Lighthouse.

Atop the cliffs and with spectacular panoramic sea views this is a truly unforgettable holiday home, ideal for older families, friends and couples.

Accessed via 84 steps from the parking area, from the hall head to the sunny open plan living space, sea facing and beautifully finished.

Twin doors open to the full-width balcony where you can take in the ever-changing seascape beyond.

On the same level are three comfortable bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and doors leading to a small garden area.

On the lower ground floor you'll find a patio garden looking out to sea with a small communal lawned area.

Sited directly along the coast path, follow in the footsteps of smugglers and explore the historic Napoleonic fortifications protecting Plymouth sound.

In the evening why not meander along to the pretty fishing villages of Kingsand and Cawsand where you'll find plenty of pubs and restaurants in which to enjoy a hearty meal.

The Mount Edcumbe Estate and Gardens are within easy reach as are the golden sands of Whitsand Bay.

Further afield take the Cremyll foot ferry across the Tamar to spend the day exploring Plymouth with its many shops and attractions.

Whatever you choose you're sure to have an unforgettable holiday at 2, The Old Signal House.
