Tourism chiefs at Land’s End have unveiled the iconic site’s first-ever luxury self-catering accommodation, as part of a £3million investment programme.
The Saddle and Stable Rooms at the famous First and Last Inn are a new development of contemporary holiday apartments that will officially open for guests in July.
This latest £350,000 investment highlights Land’s End’s commitment to improving facilities for visitors to the historic site.
A total of £3million is currently being invested to improve the experience for the hundreds of thousands of families who visit Land’s End each year and to help conserve its 100 acres of breath-taking natural landscape and coastline.
Phase One saw the site given a major facelift in the run up to the start of the Olympic Torch relay last month. It also included the new Arthur’s Quest attraction, which opened earlier this year and has been a massive hit with visitors.
The large-scale refurbishment programme follows the success of an initial pilot project, which saw a £250,000 renovation of the restaurant, lounge bar and reception area of the renowned Land’s End Hotel.
The stylish new apartments are located close to both Land’s End and nearby Sennen Cove, a stunning beach favoured by surfers and families.
The Saddleroom is a two-bedroom apartment with en-suite bathrooms. There are three Stableroom studio apartments, all furnished to a high standard and sympathetic to the original use of the historic buildings.
David Bryans, general manager at Land’s End, said, “We are delighted with the quality and style of our new self-catering accommodation.
“The team of designers has created something very special, giving these historic buildings a new lease of life and providing the very best facilities for guests. The interiors are stunning.
“Together with the Land’s End Hotel, they provide a great base to explore the area and to ensure that a stay here is a truly memorable experience.
“The investment in the new accommodation is just one part of our current refurbishment programme.
“We are investing heavily across the site, improving our facilities, so Land’s End remains an integral part of any visit to Cornwall and to make sure that people who experience its natural beauty and history can’t wait to make a return journey.
“Our plans are wide-ranging, from improving buildings and directional signage to ensuring that our staff offer the best customer service levels available.”
The plan also includes:
