The Signal Station | Luxury Self-Catering | The Lizard, Cornwall

Journey to the end of the earth to this iconic and historic maritime home settled high on the cliffs of Cornwall’s wild Lizard Peninsula. Once offering safe passage to voyaging ships, The Signal Station is the most southerly self-catering home in the land where chic, understated charm perfectly complements the ever-changing horizon.

A luxury self-catering coastal home on the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall


Built in 1872 as a beacon of safety and communication for passing vessels, this southernmost luxury home offers an intimate coastal retreat in Cornwall where the weather, views and tumultuous skies are the true stars of the show. Inside, white-washed walls, blues and greys flawlessly blend with the kaleidoscopic horizon, while industrial fittings and salvaged features nod to this unique home’s seafaring past. Outside, seating and cooking areas morph out of serpentine rock to provide a true at-one-with-the-elements experience while dining, sipping cocktails and setting the world to rights as the sun plunges into the sea.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

There are three beautifully uncomplicated double bedrooms (one super king-size zip-and-link, one super king and one king-size four-poster) on the first floor of The Signal Station, all with stunning, sweeping views across the ocean and window seats perfect for a quiet, contemplative morning cup of tea before the brood rise from slumber. On the second floor of the lookout tower is the bunk room, superb for little ones. There is one family bathroom on the first floor, with large freestanding bath tub and rainfall shower with small step, along with one separate WC on the ground floor.


Here is a place where barefooted al fresco breakfasts are nothing but mandatory, where the stars shine bright and sea forever whispers, where the enormity of nature awes, envelops and frees in equal measure. Sun-kissed, windswept days can be expected with any stay at The Signal Station, where both storms and postcard-worthy days are as breathtaking as each other. Barbecue overlooking the ocean, sink into the sofas on the roof terrace and watch silhouetted birds soar on thermals as the heavens burn at the close of the day.

For Relaxation

Rise with the sun, spread mats on the roof terrace and stretch into the morning with some enlivening salutations before donning walking boots and bags filled with beach towels ready to stomp the coast path to the turquoise waters and golden sands of paradisiacal Kynance Cove. The Lizard Peninsula offers opportunities en masse to amble between kitsch tearooms, quaint fishing villages and golden beaches, but with views as good as the one from each and every room of The Signal Station, you’d be forgiven for not exploring a single inch of this wild corner of Cornwall.


There is parking for four cars. The bright, industrial kitchen benefits from a large five-ring induction hob and oven, dishwasher, wine fridge, American-style fridge and washing machine. Due to steep steps, rocks and cliffs inside and outside the property, The Signal Station is not suitable for guests with limited accessibility and children are to be supervised.

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around The Lizard, Cornwall to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Vitamin Sea The Lizard Peninsula is famed for its breath-taking coastline and unique landscape, so pack a bottle of suncream, along with raincoat and walking boots, to ensure you can enjoy the area whatever the weather. Thrill seekers will relish the chance to go coasteering or kayaking around the rugged shoreline while those looking for a more leisurely activity need to visit the iconic Kynance Cove where you can eat homemade scones looking out over the turquoise waters.

Nearest Beach  Kynance Cove is just three miles away by car, or one hour and a half along the coast path by foot.

Mining History Follow in the footsteps of the 18th century Cornish tin miners on an atmospheric tour of Poldark Mine and the Heritage Museum. The Halliggye Fogou is also worth a visit, being the largest and best-preserved underground tunnels associated with the Cornish Iron Age settlements.

Foodie Delights The pretty harbour village of Porthleven has a wealth of delis, fine dining restaurants and gastro pubs to suit every member of the family. Hop from The Ship Inn to Amelies to Kota and the Horse and Jockey before indulging in some fine Cornish ice cream, legs swinging off the harbour wall, fishing boats bobbing below.



Immerse fully into the Cornish culture with a spread of cheeses and meats reared and made in the area from the Retallack Butchers and Deli. Of course, with a barbecue overlooking the sea, grilling fish (from the Cadgwith Fish Seller) with a sea breeze cooling sunkissed cheeks, is the epitomy of luxurious outdoor living.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

It can be difficult to leave The Signal Station's gorgeous views and cosy window seats, so crack open a bottle of wine and order exceptional Thai food from Jumunjy Thai, who willingly deliver all the way to this remote clifftop location. For a more formal affair, the Housel Bay Hotel is just a short walk along the cliff path and offers exceptional meals from the mind of a Michelin trained chef.
