Sally Port Cottage details
In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is 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.
