The property

Situated in The Lizard, the most southernly point in Britain, lies this attractive little cottage, Rocket Cart House.

This tiny granite building offers a lovely escape for couples eager to break away from normal life and enjoy the attractions of South Cornwall.

Holding plenty of history, the property was originally used by the Lizard lifeguard crew as a storage for lifesaving apparatus used to rescue shipwrecked sailors who ran ashore on treacherous rocks of the Lizard Point.

Internally, the space has been used very well, featuring a stylish open plan living area where you can relax each evening.

Make use of the woodburning stove on colder nights, whilst the kitchen comes amply-equipped with all the essentials for a short break, including an electric oven/microwave, induction hob, washer/dryer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to washing up!

As you tire, get yourself comfortable in the bedroom, housing a King-sized double bed against a timber clad backwall, as well as matching bedside tables and a pretty hanging space – the owner’s efforts haven’t gone unnoticed!

Slide open a wooden door to access the en-suite shower, complete with a walk-in shower enclosure, heated towel rail, basin and WC.

A pretty courtyard can be found outside, offering a lovely space for alfresco dining or to simply sit back with a favourite drink in hand.

The Lizard offers a small selection of shops, two pubs, a Deli, takeaway fish and chips plus the famous Ann's 'Pasty and a Pint' and a selection of cafés where you can refuel following a coastal adventure.

Nearby Mullion and Helston offer a greater range of amenities, including the Mullion Meadows Chocolate Factory, where you can sample a tempting range of Belgian chocolate and join in Art classes at the Gallery.

Take yourself further north and visit the market town of Helston, where you can visit the fascinating Helston Folk Museum and enjoy the Flora Day Festival in May.The Cornish Seal Sanctuary and Trebah Gardens are close by along with many other National Trust sites.

For those looking to soak up the scenery, meander along the South West Coast Path and you may stumble across the beautiful Kynance Cove, offering stunning white sands and turquoise waters.

Immersed in breath-taking scenery, a stay at Rocket Cart House will have you returning each year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
