A listed terrace of seven cottages built by the government in 1826 in an attempt to suppress smuggling in the area. They lie beside The South West Coast Path on a sheltered and slightly sloping sunny site facing due south and directly overlooking the sea, so that all front rooms have sea views. A broad and social sitting area gives onto a large lawn, partially divided by hedges and surrounded by a perimeter wall helping to contain younger children. Within it are a big sandpit, swing and herb garden. Along the back of the terrace is the original service building, separated from the house by a narrow continuous alley containing showers and WCs for Nos. 4-7, as well as a small fuel shed for each cottage. There is a laundry room with washing machines and driers though each cottage has its own clothes line. There is an indoor table tennis table and outside badminton court. Cars are parked 50 meters to the east in an old quarry, avoiding any disturbance. Coule’s Cove is about 100 paces away and the nearest large sandy beach, Kenneggy (above), some 300 across the rocks at low tide.
