Just a few meters off the British coast near Newquay in Cornwell, lies the tiny Towan island. Perched at the top of this 80 feet high rocky island is a charming cottage that is accessible via a 100 feet long suspension bridge, the only privately owned suspension bridge in Great Britain. Originally a Victorian tea room, the building was converted into a three-bedroom Edwardian house in the 1930s. Since then it has been home to various lords and aristocratic couples including the son of physicist Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, inventor of the spark plug. When the last owner Lord Viscount Long sold the property in 2012, it was converted into a holiday home that is being offered for rent. The property is since called The House in The Sea.

Whipsiderry beach is sheltered, surrounded by cliffs and has numerous rock pools and caves to explore. A large island known as Black Humphrey Rock or Flory Island stands in the middle of the beach. It has its own small cave, probably the result of it being mined for its ore in the past. It is believed to be named after the notorious smuggler, who is thought to have lived here in the old mine workings until his death in the early 19th century. At high tide as in this image the beach reduces to a tiny stretch of sand. Thrift or Sea Pink grows abundantly on the cliff edges.
