Longships is presented by Rural Retreats in association with Trinity House.
Located on the southern-most tip of mainland Britain, Longships is one of six cottages at the Lizard Lighthouse.
Presenting guests with stunning scenery, coastal walks on the doorstep and rare and beautiful flora and fauna, Longships is a very special cliff top location.
Lizard Lighthouse is a fully working lighthouse, first established in 1619. The distinctive two white towers that it is known for today were built in 1751 by private entrepreneur Thomas Fonnereau, and first lit on 22 August of that year. Trinity House gained control of the lights in 1771 and continues to look after its operation to this day. It became electrified in 1924 and then fully automated in 1998. It has a 26 mile light range and an automatic 3 mile fog signal if conditions are misty.
The site is open to the public for lighthouse tours but the privacy of guests staying at the cottages is not normally affected.
