SW5528 : Coastguards' Cottages, Prussia Cove

Coastguards' Cottages, Prussia Cove
Coastguards' Cottages, Prussia Cove
This pretty set of cottages, with an excellent view of Mount's Bay and out to sea, were built to house the Coastguard in an attempt to prevent, or at least make more difficult, the smuggling trade which was rife around this area of West Cornwall. It was only a short distance to scrabble over the rocks down to the cove, which was behind me and to the left as I took this picture. Nowadays it is possible to hire out these cottages as a holiday let (or perhaps do some smuggling of your own !!)
