“Fantastic location - but that fog horn works!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2007

We stayed in Bishop Rock (one of the lighthouse cottages) in July 2007. The accomodation is truely amazing with views to die for and fantastic facilities, including your own private barbeque. It was one of the BEST self catering places we have used. Easy walking distance to the village for pubs and shops and right on the coastal path.

The Lizard has so much to do for all of the family - go - its beautiful! Kynance Cove is 5 minutes drive away. We had so much fun playing in the sea. The surfing beaches are good near by on the other side of Mullion. Goonhilly (I think thats how you spell it) satellite museum is worth a visit and the seal sanctuary at Gweek.

Caroline and Don are brilliant too, with lots of useful information about the lighthouse and the past. We enjoyed our tour of the lighthouse.

BUT that foghorn goes off at the sniff of fog - it was July and we were kept awake for 3 out of the 7 nights. The horn goes off every 30 seconds. I did post this on the Mullion cottages website but they did not include my review. Obviously they are worried that noone will book.

It is a fab location and well worth staying there but you might not get much sleep.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2007

We booked a week at the Lizard Lighthouse cottages in October (although they do short breaks in the winter of 2-3 nights), and is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.

The cottages are the old lighthouse cottages which have been converted in Spring 2007 to an incredibly high standard. The views from the window overlook the Lizard cliffs with uninterrupted views and it is so wonderfully quiet and relaxing, and you can even stay in the second lighthouse tower. We stayed in Godrevy cottage which sleeps six, and they had thought of everything - immaculately furnished and well equipped.

The only downside (which they do warn in advance) is that the lighthouse is still functioning, and has a foghorn on foggy nights. They provide earplugs for the foghorn which will sound every 30 seconds but after a while you block it out - although not for the light sleeper. It was foggy for 2 nights we were there in October, but there is no real prediction on the weather.

You can book the properties via Mullion cottages rather than Trinity House who own the lighthouse.

Also recommend a trip round the lighthouse and museum which is being re-opened to the public as a heritage centre in Spring 2008.
