Godrevy Island and Lighthouse, Cornwall


  • Located in Gwithian, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • At the northern end of St Ives Bay, Godrevy Island and Lighthouse are just off Godrevy Point near Godrevy Cove. There's a large National Trust car park by the point that offers fine views of the island, lighthouse and bay
  • Godrevy Island and Lighthouse inspired Virginia Woolf's 1927 literary masterpiece 'To the Lighthouse'. Woolf spent many summers in St Ives on family holidays. They stayed in Talland House above St Ives Porthminster Beach. We provide an external link to the Talland House website. Godrevy Island and Lighthouse are located on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see their location
  • If you're visiting Godrevy Point, we'd recommend following the South West Coast Path a short distance north to Mutton Cove. It's possible you'll see seals on the beach below precipitous cliffs. Clearly, be careful when viewing
  • If literary history is of interest, we'd also suggest you head down to Zennor. D.H. Lawrence lived just outside the village between 1916 and 1917. He was eventually evicted from the county having been accused of spying for the Germans in WWI
  • By James Penman
