The Lookout was originally built as a coastguard cottage set on the edge of the village of Treen. The village is famous for the rocking stone or Logan Rock. It also boasts the four hundred year old Logan Rock Inn. It has a children's room and serves excellent food.
Treen is situated close to the beautiful Penberth Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The surrounding area is blessed with unspoilt coves, stunning beaches and spectacular walks both coastal and inland.
Lands End is approx three miles from the cottage with Sennen Cove beyond. Penzance is approx fifteen minutes away by car and St Ives approx thirty minutes.
