A Place to Stay; Sally Port Cottage, Cornwall, & Winchcombe Lodge, Cotswolds
Sally Port Cottage, Cornwall
Sally Port Cottage at St Anthony’s Lighthouse is situated at the furthest point of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula. A perfect romantic retreat, 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 might remember) was the location for the children’s TV programme ‘Fraggle Rock’. 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 with the garden offering absolutely stunning views.
