Located on the high cliffs of Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula, is this one-of-a-kind maritime gem.
Long known as Lloyd’s Signal Station, you can now rent this historic and iconic building that once provided safe navigation to passing ships.
The vacation rental sleeps six guests and even accepts dogs!
A signal station is similar to a lighthouse; it is a place on shore from which signals are made to communicate with ships at sea.
Lloyd’s Signal Station was built in 1872 and was in operation until 1969.
The vacant building was eventually converted to a residential property, becoming one of the mainland’s most southerly homes with great views over the Atlantic.
Let’s have a look inside!
The décor is muted and neutral, which serves to put the focus on those spectacular ocean views.
Renters of the Station can also partake in beach swimming via the nearby coastal path to the turquoise waters of Kynance Cove.
What an inspiring place to stay!

Morning coffee spot?
The fully outfitted kitchen is both modern AND cozy. (Or, as they say across the pond: cosy.)
