Now converted into a cosy and romantic holiday home Tiffy's, so called because it was once the workshop of the military artificer (the tiffy)or engineer, who used to maintain, modify and repair the guns, provides an excellent base from which to explore this remote corner of the Roseland Peninsula.
The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes and a wealth of wildlife to discover.
Take a closer look at seabirds from the nearby bird hide, including fulmars as they glide across the vertical rock faces. You may also spot shags congregating on the low rock near the lighthouse and grey seals on the rocks at the tide falls.
For a quieter pace sit back and relax outside the cottage and enjoy the panoramic views of St Mawes, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it's still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.
