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.
This quirky 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.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!
The far west of Cornwall has a unique atmosphere. The most southerly point in Britain, the Lizard, with its turbulent seas, treacherous reefs and towering cliffs, has an unusual quality which sets it apart from the rest of Cornwall. Yet, with its unique flora, tiny fishing villages and fascinating caves and coves, this quiet corner is ideal for the visitor who appreciates untamed natural beauty and many dramatic views. Land?s End Peninsula, also known as West Penwith, has equally magnificent cliffs and turbulent seas, but is very different in character to the Lizard. Here, granite moorland meets the sea: an ancient haunting landscape of small, rocky fields, isolated farms and hamlets and an extraordinary wealth of archaelogical remains. This tiny corner abounds in places to visit and the Trust manages or owns many of these including St Michael's Mount and the nearby Trengwainton Gardens, Levant Mine at St Just, the ancient house of Godolphin and Lizard Point. Aside from the wealth of National Trust properties other attractions include the famous seaside town of St. Ives, beloved of artists over the years and now the home of the Tate Gallery, the underground tour of Geevor Mine, St Just, Penzance, with its helicopter and boat links to Isles of Scilly, RSPB site at Marazion, the pretty harbour at Mousehole, Penlee Gallery in Newlyn - the list is endless! For the more energetic, outdoor activities abound with wonderful sandy beaches, watersports, walking, horse-ridnig, fishing, golf and cycling.
