Wireless Cottage is part of the Grade II-listed Lizard Wireless Station, built by Guglielmo Marconi in 1900 for use in his early radio experiments. Sitting alongside what is now a wireless museum, Wireless Cottage is perched in dramatic isolation above the beautiful curve of Housel Bay, on the edge of Lizard village and close to Lizard Point itself. This simple and evocative wooden building faces south, with wide views over the springy, rabbit-cropped turf to the shimmering ocean and across to the lighthouse at Lizard Point. Wireless Cottage is about as idyllic and romantic a little hideaway as you could wish for.
The Cottage is set back 10 yards from coastal path, 100 yards beyond this again cliffs fall to the sea. There are sweeping views to the Lizard Lighthouse to the west and towards Falmouth Bay to the east.

Remember to pack some good walking boots and youâ€™ll be set for life!
