Those who remember Fraggle Rock will know the show began with a clip of an impressive lighthouse, which is now available to rent. The 1980s show was created by Jim Henson – most famously known for his work with The Muppets – and soon became one of most loved children's TV shows. Fraggle Rock followed the everyday goings on of a group of bizarre looking puppets called Fraggles, alongside Doozers and Gorgs who lived amongst the rocks beside the lighthouse. And now, Sally Port Cottage at St Anthony's Lighthouse in St Mawes, Cornwall is available to rent from Rural Retreats at an unmissable price. The holiday home sleeps four, and with its sweeping sea views, it makes a perfect place to spend a few nights away. There are two bedrooms, one en-suite shower room, and one bathroom, as well as a sun-trap patio area and detached observation room with fantastic views. However, you will need to embark on a steep 300m cliff path from the car park to get there. Ear plugs are also available – and it's recommended that you use them – since there is an operational lighthouse with an automatic electric fog signal nearby. It works out that for a seven-night stay, four people can stay at an incredible price from only £33 per person, per night.
