The original name of the cottage is Lowen Chy but it is locally known as The Lifeboat House because of its close associations with the Penlee lifeboat.
Beautifully decorated and finished throughout, with breathtaking views across Mount's Bay from the living room and master bedroom; The Lifeboat House is a stunning cottage from which to base your Cornish holiday.
The accommodation is spread over three floors. From a small enclosed courtyard, furnished with a table and chairs to catch the afternoon sun, you enter the cottage on the ground floor. In the hallway there is a cloakroom/wc and heated cloaks cupboard, leading to the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and stairs to the other floors. The master bedroom benefits from magnificent sea views over St. Clement's Isle and out towards St.Michael’s Mount. This bedroom contains a king-sized bed and generous built-in wardrobes. The spacious en-suite bathroom also has a cupboard housing the washing machine and a separate airing cupboard.
Upstairs on the first floor is the main living space with open plan kitchen/dining room/sitting room. The living area is light and tastefully decorated with comfy sofas, TV, beautiful large wood burning stove and those spectacular views across Mount's Bay through another huge bay window. There is a dining table with seating and a very well-equipped shaker-style kitchen.
The lower ground floor comprises of a pretty double bedroom (can be made into twin beds on request), and its own well-appointed en-suite shower room. A doorway from this lower hallway leads to the rear courtyard, which has pedestrian access through to the harbour and beach front.

We enjoyed our stay at The Lifeboat House. The location in this part of Cornwall was perfect for us to enjoy the most dramatic parts of the SW Coast-Path and to then enjoy the views of Mounts Bay when returning back to base.Mr Robert Whitell - 20th January 2020
We’ve stayed in many properties over the years and this was by far the best. The property was very clean and well equipped. We’d stayed over new year and the property was always warm. We liked it so much we rebooked on the 2nd day of our stay.Mrs Julie Dunn - 12th January 2020

Lovely property, homely and welcoming. Fantastic views. Parking in harbour car park not a problem. Pub five minute walk with good food, and 2 Fore Street restaurant a must visit for foodies, but need to book. Mr Nigel Deacon - 22nd June 2019
We had a wonderful stay in The Lifeboat House. The view was breathtaking! It has all the thoughtful touches to make sure you feel at home. The scones on arrival were very much appreciated too!
