Bay House

Bed & Breakfast

Perched high on the tip of Britain’s southernmost point, by beach and coastal paths, an immaculate guest house with spellbinding sea views


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This is almost as close to the sea as you can get and there are Atlantic views at every turn. Watch the sunset from the west-facing terrace that juts out over the very edge of Cornwall.

Inside, the attention to detail is immaculate. You’ll feel smart wearing a Ralph Lauren dressing gown in your antique and art-filled bedroom. Space too for lounging with DVDs and an iPod dock.

Scramble down to secluded beaches; play golf nearby; stroll to the famous Lizard Lighthouse just yards away and join the coastal path that leads you in both directions. You can hear the waves breaking from the garden, so rest here under rustling palms and hovering kestrels. Breakfast is outstanding – choose almost anything, all sourced locally and served with John’s homemade bread and jams.

The neighbourhood

Steps from the water’s edge, beautiful Housel Bay is a great spot for swimming, while peddling and surf lessons can be had just ten minutes away. Saunter over to magical Cadgwith Cove for a pint in a traditional Cornish fisherman’s pub, or head to the ancient village of Mullion for a taste of local history. There’s a Michelin star restaurant within walking distance.

Friendly owners Carla and John were drawn to the property by the spectacular views. City slickers turned country lovers, they’ll happily share a glass of wine and chat with you – and they’ll even cook you a private dinner if you ask ahead.
