The coastal views from the roof terrace of this 18th century castle.
Take the footpath direct from Acton Castle to the coast and coves, some 200 metres.
Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by secluded, rocky coves, Acton Castle stands proud on the cliffs over Mount's Bay.
Prussia Cove is between St Michael's Mount, Marazion, and the Lizard Peninsula. The picturesque cove sits on the eastern flank of Cudden Point. The dramatic coastline of Prussia Cove is made-up of three smaller coves called Piskies, Bessy's and Kings. The smaller beaches of pale gold sand, sheltered by the cliffs, offer the perfect spot for rockpooling and bathing at low tide.
From Acton Castle, join the South West Coast Path east to Piskies Cove and Cudden Point; or walk west to the beach and village of Perranuthanoe, with seafront cafes and an excellent gastro pub.
Built in 1775 as a country house, Acton Castle offers commanding views over Mount's Bay. The now Grade II listed building, was created by John Stackhouse, an enthusiastic marine biologist. Stackhouse wanted a gentleman's retreat where he could carry out his botany. The scientist commissioned architect John Wood the Younger, who at the time, recently completed designs for the world famous Royal Crescent in Bath.
Cornwall's most famous real-life smuggler John Cater, The King of Prussia, is known to have rented a farm at Acton Castle, and for a time, was the building's caretaker. When Stackhouse was not at the property, Cater took advantage of the empty space and used it as a hideout. Old Cornish tales say that smuggler's tunnels run from the castle to the coast although they have never been found.
The Tower is a large duplex apartment, occupying the top two floors of Acton Castle plus a large private rooftop terrace with 360 views. Think large bedrooms with sea views, a sumptuous and complete refurbishment to match the grandeur of the building, matched to a hi-spec kitchen and bathrooms.

Nothing disappointed us, the views were amazing. Eating meals on the roof, whilst taking in the view was the most pleasurable experience. We like to cook so was very surprised to see how well equipped the kitchen was, if we were going to be picky a cafetiere and a lemon reamer were the only items we would have added and some of the pans wouldn't work on the induction hob. The Tower and its gardens were a joy to spend a week in and we would definitely like to return.

We have just had a fantastic week at The Tower. It has been a long time since we have stayed in a place that left us feeling so 'at home and relaxed', flowers & prosecco were a lovely touch, the beds were so comfortable, the decoration throughout was contemporary and very well done, the kitchen well stocked with useful items and plenty of crockery and cutlery. It was toasty warm, despite the chilly weather outside and the extra blankets, were a nice touch, definitely good for roof top star gazing. We had two groups of friends who joined us over the week, and all were very taken with the property and location (a new spot for us).Thank you for enabling us to have a 'totally' get away holiday.

The Tower is a beautiful high spec property and the views are stunning. We enjoyed cooking at the property as facilities were spot on as well as board games in the evening. Several walks on the doorstep (Praa Sands, St Michael's Mount, Mousehole, Portleven etc.) as well as places to eat and food was delicious at all the places we stopped by. We had amazing weather and even saw Mars from the balcony as the sky was so clear. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time - thank you!
