About The Captain's QuarterA converted former officer’s quarters sitting on the impressive St Anthony’s Head.
The Captain’s Quarter along with The Major’s and The Lieutenant’s Quarter and Tiffy's, sit high on St Anthony Head overlooking the sea. These special fomer officer's quarters were preserved after we bought St Anthony Head on the Roseland Peninsula in 1959. Now guests can explore the history of the former military fortification site when they stay here.
It has some wheelchair access too, with adapted interiors and an accessible tarmac path that leads to a view point overlooking St Mawes, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads.
And if you had a beach visit in mind, the small coves of Great Molunan & Little Molunan are close by. For a little bit of culture and a pub lunch, head to small fishing village, Portscatho which is just a 10 minute drive from here.
What’s more, by staying here you’ll be helping care for this significant historic site for future generations.
