Tower House

Tower House

If you’ve ever imagined sleeping in the tower of a lighthouse then this is the room for you. The sitting room and bathroom are on ground level but the jewel in the crown is the circular bedroom up the winding staircase in the old light tower itself which naturally has stunning sea views. This tower burned down in 1813 and was replaced as the light tower by the taller tower adjacent to it. The bespoke wrought iron bed side tables and iron stools were designed especially for this circular building. The curved bedhead matches the wall to perfection. On a windy night it is a treat to snuggle up in downy comfort imagining the security the light from this tower once gave to sailing ships tossing on the high seas outside.

The decor is minamilist and understated, reflecting its original function. The sitting room features a sofa bed so The Tower House can sleep 2 singles. Original flagstone floors add real character to the ground level while warm wood floors add softness to the upstairs tower bedroom.

Comfortable antique chairs draw you to to the dancing flames in the period fireplace. Time can really stand still in this unique setting.
