Lephin Cottage

Attractions at Lephin Cottage

Glendale has the darkest night skies in the UK, making it ideal for star-gazing and photographing the aurora borealis.

It is just a short drive to Neist Point, where there are regular sightings of minke whales, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks, with the occasional orcas. Neist is a mecca for wildlife with nesting colonies of fulmars, kittiwakes, shags and auks.

The cottage is a 10 minute taxi ride from the acclaimed Three Chimneys restaurant, which regularly features amongst the best restaurants in the UK.

A 10-minute walk takes you to the amazing Red Roof Café & Gallery which specialises in using local produce for their lunches.
